Kind Words

“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.”

“Amanda is an amazing and gifted photographer. She did a wonderful job capturing our wedding and our pictures afterwards were spectacular. We planned a destination wedding in Lake Placid, and Amanda was easy to reach and responded quickly to our emails and phone calls when needed. She even touch based with us after the wedding to update us on the status of our wedding album! We could not have asked for a better photographer for our wedding!!”
-Jan & Jason, Lake Placid Lodge Wedding

“Once I reached out to Amanda to book her for our wedding, everything was effortless. We had a small wedding at the Whiteface Lodge in Lake Placid, NY with twenty guests so we decided on an elopement package she offers. We had no ideas of any specific photos in mind, two week prior we decided we wanted a different location for some photos prior to the wedding. Amanda was so accommodating and captured beautiful pictures. Every time I show our wedding photos people are stunned with the quality and uniqueness of our pictures. We are very pleased we selected Amanda and would book her all over again.”
-Maryanne & Andrew, Whiteface Lodge Wedding

“Amanda did a spectacular job for our ADK wedding. We are so pleased we chose her to capture our very special day. She integrated seamlessly into our small gathering and captured some amazing candids as well as posed shots. Would highly recommend her and she is extremely easy to work with.”
-Jennifer & David, Oseetah Lake Wedding

“Amanda was great to work with….very sweet and overall we were very pleased with everything!”

“Amanda Blacksmith is an amazing photographer. We highly recommend her!!”

“I had seen some of your work prior to you photographing Logan and Sam. What I wasn’t ready for was the breathtaking quality of the photos when I got to see them. You have incredible talent and are amazing with kids. I had a great time watching you work, thank you again for catching my most precious moments with my babies!!!!!!!” -Erin

“Amanda helped us capture beautiful images of our girls and our family at a location we chose that is very special to us. My oldest daughter can be a camera hog or not want anything to do with it, depending on her mood. It looked like it was going to be one of those days that she was not going to want to have her picture taken, but Amanda helped her get out of her funk with ease by pretending she was at the beach and letting her play with the camera a bit. The entire process was really effortless and we are so happy with our photos. Amanda is also very helpful with the ordering process and responds to questions in a friendly/timely manner. We will definitely be using Amanda again in the future!” -Nichole

“Amanda did an awesome job with our photographs. We had four kids in them ranging from an infant to 9 years old and she was able to get great shots of each one individually as well as in groups. She made everyone feel at ease and the whole shoot was very relaxed. The hardest thing was choosing what pictures we wanted because they all turned out great!! We will definitely be having more pictures taken by Amanda!” -Sheryl

“Really excited and blessed to have someone so talented and personable in our region. I had been envious of many shoots i have seen done professionally and was so fortunate to have Amanda capture memories for us to hold on to. My boys adored her and we all felt so at ease during our shoot! We look forward to many more in the future!” -Tonya

“We absolutely cherish every photo you took of our son Asher, you know just how to capture a moment in time that we will never forget! You have an incredible talent and eye for beauty – you will be getting a lot of business from the Pelkey/Tupia families in the future. -Josh and Lindsey

“The pictures are great. There are some of each child that totally capture their personalities and that is so important to us since they’re each so different. I feel like I could use your pictures to describe their personalities with no words to someone who has never met them.” -Andrea

“Could not love my photos more! You have a real future ahead of you, friend!” -Amy

“We had such a great time at our photo session. Our daughter Lauren usually takes a while to warm up to people and within 5 minutes she was running circles around Amanda and felt really comfortable. The photos are breath taking and really capture Laurens personality. We can’t decide which photos to order, we LOVE them ALL! We will be using Amanda for years to come to capture Lauren growing up!” -Jennifer
