Amanda's greatest strength and talent is her ability to beautifully capture relationships in her photos. She made us so comfortable in front of the camera that our personalities could come through effortlessly. Even months or years later, you'll find new photos to fall in love with!

I love the photos that Wendy took of our family — she captured the personality of each of our children (ages 4, 3 and 1) perfectly! She was professional, personal, and made it easy to be ourselves in front of the camera. I would recommend her in a heartbeat and can’t wait for our next shoot!

How did you get started with photography?

I got started with photography when my Dad handed me a camera at the age of 7 years old. It was my first point and shoot camera and I thought it was the coolest thing ever being able to go around taking photos of everything I saw around me. Then I finally got my first DSLR in the beginning of high school, after that I decided to go to photography school where I received my BFA in Professional Photography and now I am a professional photographer doing what I love every day.

What type of shoots do you enjoy doing the most?

I would say I enjoy shooting portraits in nature the most because I get the best of both worlds. I can be somewhere quiet and peaceful without all of the hustle and bustle but also create images that people love and cherish.

What are some of your favorite places in Orange County to take photographs?

I love shooting at parks, the beach, and in the canyons with the mountain scenery in the back. But my favorite place is probably shooting in Santiago Canyon because it has big beautiful trees, mountains, and bodies of water.

Amanda D, Orange County Photographer

How did you get started with photography?

Simply put, I was forced into photography. In early 2013 one of my former college classmates got engaged, and in her search for a wedding photographer she asked me—point blank—if I would consider shooting her wedding in exchange for photography education. I have an amateur background in graphic design, and I am naturally pretty creative, but at the time I had never held a DSLR camera in my life, so I was a little taken aback. She was a budding photographer and desired wedding photos taken in “her style,” but didn’t know anyone who could give her that result for a decent price, so she figured she’d train someone to shoot and edit in the exact same way she did. I hastily but politely declined her offer, pegging inexperience as obvious reasoning, but she wouldn’t have it. She continued to push the idea and insisted she wouldn’t have offered if she wasn’t confident in both her teaching and my ability to learn. After much debate and with great hesitation, I gave in and we started monthly “lessons” in preparation for her impending wedding. What I thought was little more than an opportunity to learn a new skill quickly evolved into something much grander. I began attracting clients within weeks, which prompted me to create a business name and website. By the time my friend’s big day rolled around I had already shot three weddings by myself. To no one’s surprise but my own, my love for photography and knack for running a small business took off and continued to pick up speed over the following three years. Just this past summer I left my job as an office manager to pursue photography full time and it has been one of the most rewarding decisions of my life. My curiosity for photography is as wild as it was that first month, and I have embraced self-employment with arms wide open. It’s still funny to think this passion was somehow hidden inside of me all this time—needing to be extracted quite literally in order for me to realize it—but I am so thankful for the persistence of a dear friend and my unfortunate inability to say no when called upon.

What type of shoots do you enjoy doing the most?

I enjoy capturing couples the most, because their excitement and joy is infectious and makes my job easy. There is nothing to fake on a wedding day; everything is so genuine. After couples, my next favorite thing to shoot would be maternity shoots for a couple's first born, because again the anticipation and excitement is so transparent. I also enjoy newborn photoshoots, because that is truly a most precious period in time that flies by; if you blink you might otherwise miss it.

What are some of your favorite places in Orange County to take photographs?

I love to shoot in my city, Long Beach! It is unique and diverse and there are so many special spots that I hold dear to my heart. Apart from the urban spread of LBC, I also spend a lot of time at the parks and beaches of Orange County, in the forests of Brea and Los Angeles, and the sprawling hills of Irvine.
