“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.” – Aaron Siskind
Hi, I'm Amanda. I dig moody vibes, organic pops of color, and using nature as my backdrop. Stiff, studio poses aren't my jam, so I hope they're not yours, either! Shooting outdoors is where my true passion lies, and my #1 goal is to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera.
I believe that love is love, black lives matter, and everyone deserves to be treated with kindness and respect.
In my free time, I enjoy running, baking, brushing up on my Mandarin, and exploring California with my husband.
“The best thing about a picture is that it never changes, even when the people in it do.” — Andy Warhol

Amanda is incredibly talented at her craft. She was responsive and courteous from the start. She arrived on time and ready to shoot. She was creative given the rain, and the kids all felt comfortable with her. The results are priceless. She is upfront on her turnaround time. Once we saw the final result, we can see the work that went into them. We will have and cherish these photos forever. If you are looking for a professional, kind and expert photographer, look no further!

Amanda is not only an amazing person, but an excellent photographer as well. She is the first person I considered to have take my college graduation photos, and she did not disappoint. To say I loved my pictures is an understatement. My family and friends loved them as well, and I was constantly asked who my photographer was. I’m so thankful to her for capturing these moments. I know I will look back on them to remember this significant time during my life.

On the morning of our shoot, our 2-year-old daughter was in quite a mood and we were very nervous about how things would play out. Amanda flipped that mood around with her positive and bubbly energy. Our daughter really opened up and had some fun! The shoot went great and the photos got to us quickly. We’re so happy to have these high-quality family photos!

I'm super awkward in front of a camera but working with Amanda was awesome. It felt like just hanging out and walking around - the resulting photos were totally natural and candid shots that glowed with natural light. I highly recommend Shutter Pine Photography!

Amanda was exactly what I was looking for in a photographer. She was friendly, responsive, and had an eye for a great background. She made my 10-month-old smile a bunch even though he was a little crabby. I would highly recommend Amanda to anyone!

Amanda really has a knack for capturing natural smiles. Her love for photography shows in her work, her professionalism, and her flexibility! The pictures she got of my husband and I are some of the best pictures we have of the two of us. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing photography services.

Amanda has been amazing. She took our engagement photos. She helped me pick out a beautiful location. She showed up early and acted casual so my girlfriend didn't realize I knew her. Her photos are incredible. Check her website for her past stuff because that was a big reason why I picked her. She truly has an eye for photography and editing. My friends and family cannot get enough of the shots. I would recommend her to everyone!

We absolutely love working with Amanda! We had our family photos taken by her the last two summers and have been very, very happy with the results! Amanda is great with our children (and this year, our new puppy)! She's gifted at finding great candid shots as well as making posed shots seem natural and not stiff. Both of our sessions have been at local parks and she scouts the park out beforehand to find perfect picture backgrounds. Amanda has been amazing and we would recommend her to anyone!

Amanda immediately made me feel comfortable and at ease in front of the camera, and went above and beyond with the pictures! She climbed in between bushes in heels to get the shot, and the edited photos were sent quite promptly after the shoot. Very friendly, prompt, and professional, not to mention the photos came out extremely well. Highly recommend!

“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” — Elliott Erwitt
