Hello! I am Amanda. The heart and soul behind Amanda MacPhee Studios. I believe that wedding photography is about more than just hiring someone to take pictures. Wedding photography is about using artistry and intention to capture the moments of your big day in a way that beautifully tells the story of your relationship. I make it my mission to achieve these three things in every photograph I take: Joy, Romance, & a little bit of Magic!
