hiya!

I'm Amber.

I like pretty light. I laugh too loudly. I love what I do.

I'm a wedding photojournalist based in Las Vegas, with a huge desire to see the world. I'm lucky enough to be engaged (!!!) to the love of my life, John. Together, we have a home full of animals, go to too many concerts, and cook amazing foods in a tiny kitchen.

I’m a bit of a fckin nerd. I love eating. I’m actually writing this while eating. I’m a solid 50/50 mix of April and Donna from P&R. I dye my hair way too freakin’ much. I like dancing behind the camera so that you’ll laugh at me. When I’m not photographing or editing, I’m practicing my opera singing (no I probably won’t sing in front of you because #social anxiety) or I’m going rock climbing! Idk. Here are some pics of my life.

“Amber gave us the best experience as a wedding photographer! She not only felt like family, but I feel like she could easily be my best friend as well. She was so incredibly kind and patient for our wedding (and leading up to it!), and the pictures capture every bit of love and emotion that we felt on the day of our wedding. I don’t have enough kind things to say about her. I highly recommend her!”
