I’m Amanda, a photographer and single mom of two adventurous boys in Eugene Oregon. My life is beyond full and I wouldn’t change this crazy pace for the world. My love and faith are in Jesus. I feel fulfilled when I’m connecting with people and living moments side by side with all those I love. There's an energy and joy I feel when I have my camera in my hand, capturing the real authentic, fun-loving moments. I want you to see how special you are. I’m a clean hippy at heart. Always trying to have a balance with nutrition and sweets. I’m not afraid to let loose once in a while and have many dance parties at home with my boys.
Amanda is nothing short of the best. She is punctual, professional, fun loving, entertaining for kiddos and strives to make sure she captures every idea you could dream of for your photos! Above all her talent is unmatched! had become the only one I let take such important photographs of our family. We first used her talent for our sons first birthday party. Next was my baby shower for our second baby and a maternity shoot. We just competed a family shoot. I met her while she took professional photos for a Stella&Dot team. She was amazing then so I booked her for our sons photos. I had balloons and ideas of what I wanted. She made it happen. The photos were breath taking. For our maternity shoot same thing...up to making my dream of smoke bombs happen! For our recent shoot I had a mock cake smash for our daughter and she helped me rearrange to take the best pics as I put it too high. She spends quality time with you to make sure she “got the shot”. She makes me kiddos laugh and engage. She’s amazing. I can’t inagine not having her take our family photos every year. She’s part of our family now ?Will never look anywhere else for professional photographs!
One of the best choices I made my senior year was having Amanda Meg Photography do my senior photos! Senior Photos can be really stressful because you want to look flawless and your absolute best, but you also want them to represent the authentic you. I personally tend to be pretty awkward and uncomfortable in front of any type of camera, but with Amanda it was a completely different story. Her energetic, goofy personality made my nerves go away instantly. Amanda makes you feel completely comfortable and natural in front of the camera. She has a great eye when it comes to posing you in unique ways that fit your individual personality perfectly, but still encourages you to have fun with the shoot and try some of the things that you think would look good as well. Overall Amanda’s amazing personality and creative eye, not only makes your senior photos turn out great, but also makes it a really easy and memorable experience.
You know when you want to leave more than just 5 stars and say that someone should earn 1000% for a review? Well that is how I feel about Amanda and our experience with her shooting our family photos. I was referred to Amanda because her peers felt that her skills are extra highlighted when it comes to a family shoot. Family shoots come with the territory of little children, messes, crying, not happy campers and potentially having up to like 18 people in one group. My first phone conversation with Amanda made me feel like I have known her for years and that it was going to be just another normal shoot. Except no I have never met this fantastic lady and no she did not know what she was getting her self into when I asked if my extended family was okay to bring to our small family shoot. When we got to our location I was welcomed with a hug and huge smile like we were old friends meeting up for coffee. That is the experience and customer service you get with this photographer. She made our little boy laugh with her silly faces, jumps in the air and her conversation at eye level. Qualities that any mom would look for when realizing she just wants a few perfect pictures of their little one. We never once felt rushed, against the clock or that she wouldn't hear our ideas for pictures. Amanda was quick to getting our family albums back to us with constant communication of what her status was. Once I received our album, I saved about 180 of the images just on my phone because each one was PERFECTION!! I was so happy that I was referred to Amanda because I have found our family photographer for life and I can't wait for the next session! If you decide to pick Amanda, you won't be disappointed and if you don't pick her well than you just missed out not only on great quality work but an amazing friendship with one of the sweetest photographers I've ever met!!!
Amanda was amazing! She made my husband and I feel so comfortable and special during our maternity shoot. She spent a great deal of time with us to make sure we captured every shot! She is so kind, easy to work with and talented! We just received our gallery and we are obsessed! She made everything feel and look very organic! Cant' say enough great things about having the ability to work with Amanda! If you have the chance to work with Amanda, TAKE IT!! You won't regret your decision. Now off to print and frame all our new prints :)
Amanda is amazing to work with! She makes the entire family feel comfortable, while she capture the most magical moments. We always have fun taking pics with Amanda. I would highly recommend you use Amanda as your photographer!!
We recently had the opportunity to work with Amanda on a styled shoot. She was so kind, and did an amazing job of capturing all of the parts that go into a shoot. I'd highly recommend her to anyone needing a photographer.
We feel so lucky to have had Amanda photograph our family for a newborn shoot! She is professional, courteous, and thoughtful, but most of all, she is a ton of fun to be around and has the unique ability to put her clients at ease. She walked in the door and bonded immediately with our two year old, and when our session was over, none of us wanted her to leave. I couldn't be more thrilled with each and every image she captured - it is easy to see that Amanda loves what she does, and that love can truly be felt through her photographs. Amanda has given our family an incredible gift of memories that we will look at and treasure always, and we are already looking forward to our next session with her!
Amanda managed to exceed my high expectations for my engagement and wedding photos! I was very picky when choosing a photographer, but when I came across her page I knew I could relax on my wedding day. There wasn't a single photo I didn't love!
And what I really feel like saying...
Amanda is a miracle worker because she made me look amazing in every photo. ;) Haha!
