MANDA WAS AMAZING! One thing that literally made my stomach turn when planning the wedding was considering who was going to do our photos. I was quickly put at ease after meeting with Amanda. she was patient, professional and the pictures were more than I could have asked for.
We LOVED having Manda as our photographer. Her calm, encouraging, and sweet disposition helped us feel at ease in front of the camera. Moreover, she is incredibly talented and catches the most beautiful moments. She is incredibly creative and it shows through her work. We highly (highly) recommend Manda!!!!
Where do I even begin? Amanda was absolutely AMAZING at our wedding!!! Amanda had shot our engagement and wedding photos and they all came out stunning! We all know that long photo shoots can start to get boring but Amanda made us feel very comfortable and most of all she made sure we had fun! Amanda was always very responsive before and on our wedding day. Our wedding photos came out absolutely amazing and cannot express enough how thankful I am that I found her! I highly recommend Manda for photography for any event!!!
Manda was absolutely amazing from start to finish. As a photographer myself, I was very nervous about picking a photographer that would live up to my expectations. In reality, her absolutely gorgeous photography exceeded anything I could have imagined. She truly captured the magic that we felt that day. We received countless compliments on our photography, as well as how courteous Manda was on the wedding day. She managed to stay behind the scenes when necessary, but was an amazing director when photographing my husband and I during our couple's shoot. We aren't very comfortable in front of the camera but she immediately quelled any anxiety we had, and we had an absolute blast.
My name is Amanda, but you can call me Manda. I am a Wedding photographer based out of the Eastern Shore/Annapolis area of Maryland. I believe that every bride deserves authentic, elegant, emotional imagery of her Wedding day... Images that remind her that she is loved and lovely. Images that her granddaughter will someday cherish. I believe in building a relationships with my couples that allow me to cheer them on as they build a marriage that outshines their Wedding day.
Thank you for taking the time to peruse my digital home... I hope you will enjoy my latest work, and the peak into my life that you will find here on the blog... can't wait to learn more about your story!
My story began on the West coast in the great state of California... where my mother and father taught me to love Jesus, to see the beauty in all of His creation, and to value a marriage where romance and friendship thrive.
I was blessed to marry the love of my life, Ryan Von Weaver on January 3, of 2013. He is a the pastor of Remedy Church, the author of There Was This Guy Named Jesus, the father to our brave son's Ryland and Rance, and my best friend.
My amazing men and I now live on the East coast in Maryland where we live out our family values of harmony adventure and generosity.
My love for beauty has led me to many art forms. For much of my life my primary art form was singing. In fact, my voice paid for my college education. After college I taught music and theatre for a few years before transitioning into a creative arts pastor position at my church. That's when I picked up my first DSLR camera. Not long after that in 2009, I shot my first Wedding and I was hooked! From that moment on, I was absolutely smitten with capturing love stories. It is such a joy and an honor to journey with my amazing clients as they begin their ever-after together.
