MY STORY

Hey y’all I’m Amanda!

Thank you so much for stopping by! I am a Bright & Airy, natural light photographer born & raised in Georgia. I am obsessed with love stories & cant wait to share yours through little moments captured in time! I have been married to the love of my life, Kyle for 4 years now. He has become the BEST business partner there ever was. We work together on all of our shoots and have become a husband & wife photography team. We have a strong belief that our clients are not just clients but lifelong friends and we are beyond excited to start this friendship with you!

I wanted to share a little back story so that you can get a feel of where it all started. Kyle & I met in January of 2012 at gate C7 in the Salt Lake City airport. He came over to sit next to me and really the rest is history. We fell madly in love, got engaged in June of 2013 and married just a few short months later in the San Diego LDS Temple. Our life has been a whirlwind of business ventures, world travels and lots of learning experiences. We have come to the realization that life is to be enjoyed, not endured and we try to live by that modo daily. We strive everyday to better serve you and love the relationships we have gained though this adventure.

Our big life dreams came to a quick halt when we realized that having children was going to be a difficult task for us. We wanted to be parents more than anything in the world & a dark cloud of doubt & sadness hit us life a freight train when the reality of it all set in. We realized that in order to have the family we so deeply desired, we were going to have to spend every bit of money we earned over the past 4 years on the CHANCE to start a family. I knew I had to do something more than spend my days as a low income fashion blogger and find something that could help us pay for IVF. That’s where this new found love of photography stepped in. I was browsing through Facebook one day and came across a free photography class through Amy & Jordan Demos. That day literally changed my life forever! I have always loved photography and was self taught up until then. We did lots of shoots for the blog and I wasn’t terrible, but lets be honest I really had no clue what I was doing. I ended up loving the class & decided to invest in my business. I found my style & I fell in LOVE with light & airy photography. With the help of Amy & Jordan I was able to start my photography business and soar at it. With the knowledge that I learned from A&J I was able to help our little family afford IVF. We are in the middle stages of the process and pray everyday for a positive outcome. IVF is a crazy process that comes with lots of needle pokes, blood work and stress but it’s all going to be worth it in the end. I have learned so much and cannot thank my photography idols enough. I feel empowered to do what I love and be GOOD at it. I love my clients and the support they have shown us. We feel the love & compassion of our friends, family and clients on a daily basis. We are blessed to be able to do what we love and have a job that feels more like play than work. Are you ready to join the A&K family!? we are so excited that you are here and can’t wait to make you part of our story!

Thank you so much for loving us thorough this difficult time in our lives and trusting us to capture your memories. We can’t wait to see you soon!

lots of love,
Amanda ( and Kyle)
