Weddings are filled with beauty and magic. We believe our job is to capture that magic in the most authentic way - unobtrusively, honestly, joyfully.
Our goal is to provide you with stunning portraits that take your breath away and candid photographs that capture all the feels.
We limit the number of posed and staged shots and instead highlight the laughter, tears, and passion that just happens.
We have been photographing rustic weddings and elopements in the mountains of the Adirondacks since 2010. Today, we are deeply honored that you would consider us to document your wedding.
We are currently booking into the 2019 wedding season, with very limited availability in 2018. All inclusive wedding packages begin at $2000. Please contact us below for availability and a complete list of packages.

"I will always be thankful that Amanda was part of my wedding. Since I don’t live in the Adirondacks, I didn’t meet Amanda until the morning of my wedding day, but it was easy to email and talk on the phone before the event to talk through all the details. Amanda has a calm manner that was reassuring in planning a destination-type wedding. She was professional about her services and her prices. There were no surprises. And the moment I met Amanda before the ceremony, I felt even better about her. She was wonderful. My family loved her. My husband and I don’t like posing for photos, but somehow Amanda made it seem effortless. After the wedding, we got a sneak peak of a photo emailed to us right away. The online proofs followed within a reasonable time after – less time than many people I know who had to wait months and months for their proofs. And then Amanda kept being wonderful. Together we designed an album with real mounted photographs, not a printed photo book like a lot of photographers push on their clients. We received the album about three months after our wedding date. When I opened the package, I jumped up and down, and got teared up at the same time. The album is beautiful, like an heirloom. The photos have such depth, light, and color. Amanda has an incredible eye, and I can’t have asked for more beautiful wedding photos. Or a better person to be part of one of the best days of my life! I can’t thank you enough, Amanda." Alison & Erik Lake Placid Wedding 5 / 5 stars
