What you get for your investment
Please have fun getting ready for your shoot and experiment with items in your closet.
We all have those items hanging in our closet that we are "saving" for a special occasion, well rip those tags off it and lets have some fun! I suggest layers, accessories, textures, patterns and any special props or items that can add your own uniqueness to your images. I suggest looking through fashion magazines and searching pinterest for great inspiration on how to throw some of your favorite items together to create a look that
will make your images show your personality and flatter your beauty. Have a friend over and put on a fashion show and get some ideas of what you are the most comfortable in. Please feel free to wear coordinating colors, shirts, pants if you want a nice and classic image, but there truly are no rules! Personalizing your shoot will show who you are and what you each convey… through wardrobe, accessories, locations and attitude!
Your session is about capturing memories for your home, family & friends and is an investment, so don’t be afraid to do it up Glam Style!!!

I am a lover of anything romance. Love stories happen, I see them every weekend!! I am a big advocate for pit bulls and basically those without a voice, humanity and animals alike. Lover of life, spreader of happiness and all around optimist. I relish the opportunity to capture the moments you don't get to wittness and those you do!
After watching a special on world renowned photographer, Annie Leibovitz, I was more inspired than ever. The integrity and honesty that she puts into every photograph , staged or that "pull at the strings of your heart moments," was amazing!
It's that one moment that will never be duplicated, now there for the generations to come.
Some of the best pictures I've taken are those you never noticed I took!

How to prep for your session
A little about myself...
My husband proposed to me in July of 2011. We set a date for September 2012 and began planning. I had recommendations for many photographers but I quickly ran into the very common complicated issue of feeling pressured to decide between “what we wanted” and “financial capabilities”. No one seemed to have or demonstrate the desire to be flexible with our upcoming special day. We learned of Say Anything Photography and needless to say never looked back.
We had a relaxed, no pressure and reassuring meeting with Amanda in our home. She took everything we “wanted” and created a personalized package for us. My husband and I were very pleased!! Amanda began “The Story of Us” with our unique engagement pictures and continued by our side until evenings end of reception. We, as with our families and extremely large wedding party, became quite familiar and comfortable with her. She even provided a Photo Booth at our reception that proved to bring the many family members and guests together!
I have and will continue to highly recommend Say Anything Photography. Since our wedding last September we continue to get compliments.
A “forever THANKS” to you Amanda!!!

Amanda is such a great photographer...She is not only very talented at what she does but she went above and beyond what I expected. My son did not sit still once throughout the session but you would not be able to tell that from the awesome pics she took. I will recommend her to all of my friends who are looking for an awesome AND affordable photographer!
