the artist

My journey with photography began a little before I met my husband at the age of seventeen. I was so inspired by light and creativeness. Yet, I had no idea this aspiration could lead me towards being an entrepreneur or professional wedding photographer. Shortly after we got married, I booked my first wedding at twenty years old. From then on, my heart was hooked on capturing love. I have always had a heart for people, and relationships. Being invited into the lives of the sweetest couples, I am forever grateful. They are the ones that make my world spin. 

I have found that it is those little compliments, the raw emotion, & the honest moments that make it hard to even imagine loving a job more! 

I am so THANKFUL and excited to learn more about you and the love story that brought you here!
                Isn’t LOVE INCREDIBLE?! 

                 I can’t wait to meet you!

" There are few photographers in this world who can get our sparrow hears racing. There is something about her images that puts a little lump in our throats. Amanda has a way of capturing raw, beautiful emotion that is hiding just underneath the gorgeous."

"HIRE HER. You won't regret it! We are two people that aren't very comfortable in front of a camera, but Amanda pulled it out of us in such a natural & fun way. She is so talented - the lighting, backgrounds, attention to details - it's crazy! She makes it seem SO easy & is so quick. There were multiple times I thought did she take it? And she was already moving to the next shot, and nailed the one she just took. I can't say enough about her- she cares about you as a couple & takes your opinions into consideration, and adjust per preference. She as a joy to work with & we look forward to future shoots with her! "

This man, who I am so lucky to call my husband is my rock through this thing called life. He is the calm to my storm, the joke to my laugh & and I wholeheartedly fall in love with him more & more each day.

My relationship with the Lord is everything to me, it is my reason & my why. Without Him I am literally nothing! And I give him all the praise & glory for this business! 



Fresh flowers make my day, and I always try to have them in my house. My wedding bouquet was a dream come true. So simple, and full of peonies. We are actually adding a spot in our garden for peonies, tulips & roses!

These two are so special to Aus & I. Their personalities truly make our worlds spin.I know that sounds so cliche, but these are our fur babes & we LOVE them so much!

We absolutely loved Amanda! I came across her while looking for a wedding photographer after I got engaged. She responded to me very quickly and we were able to set up a meeting shortly after. I knew she was going to be our photographer as soon as I met her. She answered all of my questions and made me feel excited to have her photograph our special day. During our engagement session Amanda made us both feel very comfortable which was super important to us. The big day came. Amanda was on top of it from the start! She knew where to be and what vision she wanted to capture. We are very happy with the outcome! Our pictures are beautiful. She captured all the emotion I had hoped would show through in our photos. I can't recommend Amanda more. She is amazing and I am so glad we chose her!

I am blown away! All of our family and friends that we have shared our photos with have been so happy with how well these turned out. Thomas and I are so awkward in front of the camera but you managed to take some AMAZING photos of us.We are so blessed to have these photos as a beautiful reminder of our favorite day. Thank you so much for being apart of it!

This girl has an eye for DETAILS! Seriously, she’s so gifted at what she does. My husband and I were long overdue for photos, and she made the whole process feel effortless and SO much fun. The result of our short time with Amanda is not only a collection of DREAMY photos that we will treasure forever; but also the memories we made laughing, holding hands, and just being ourselves while our love for each other was so organically documented. Can not say enough about this amazing experience!

My husband and I found Amanda through Magnolia Rouge and instantly fell in love with the quality of her work. We KNEW we needed her for our wedding. One of the best decisions/vendors we were blessed to hire. Not only did she fly all the way out to South Texas, but she captured the day in the most beautiful way! When we got our gallery back a few weeks later--we cried and laughed and squealed all at the same time. When you hire Amanda, you aren't just hiring a vendor, but a friend who truly cares about your day and the small details of it all.


We just want to express how incredibly grateful we are for the stunningly beautiful work you did with our shoot. You captured the essence of our brand perfectly, we could not be happier. We want to plaster our entire website with these images! Your warmth & positive energy during our shoot made us feel so comfortable. You captured all the details & florals so beautifully! You absolutely made out dreams come true. Thank you! 


I can't even begin to express my gratitude for capturing our special day. You were so amazing to work with and you made it all so easy and effortless!

Had a great overall experience working with Amanda! She was responsive on email and super personable. On the day of the photoshoot, she was attentive to my needs, flexible, and worked great with the other vendors. I enjoyed having her create photos for use across my website and brand
