Hello & Welcome!
I thought I would take a moment to introduce you to the face behind the camera. My name is Amanda (Kate being my middle name) and I am a Wedding, Lifestyle and Branding Photographer based in the stunning Adelaide Hills.
In 2014 I married my wonderful Hubby Ben & a few years later we welcomed our beautiful daughter, Amelia. On days when I'm not off Photographing Weddings, gorgeous families or small businesses we love spending time with family & friends, exploring the Adelaide hills, visiting local Wineries, at the park running after Amelia or on the hunt to find new coffee spots.
Being a full time Photographer (as full time as you can get with a toddler!) is a dream come true and capturing gorgeous moments & memories for families or couples makes my heart sing. I work from home three days a week and during nap time on most other days. This is a wonderful balance for me as I can spend quality time with my Daughter and also get some serious work done!
A little glimpse into my heart
To me, being a Photographer is not like most other jobs. We can’t just put on our Photographer hats, push a button a few times then hang it up at 5pm. It is a creative journey, it is a career in which work doesn’t feel like work, where you are invited into peoples lives to help tell their story and capture a moment in time that will never repeat. We get a special glimpse into your lives, we hear your stories, we see you smiling and can’t help but smile back, we laugh with you, we cry with you and I know I for one, never really hang up my hat. Every single day I think about my business and about my clients, the wonderful people I also call friends.
I love looking back at our family albums filled to the brim with precious memories, laughter, funny faces & a whole lot of heart and I am so very grateful. I am even more grateful that my passion has allowed me to follow my dream & provide everlasting memories for my family and for yours.
