Hey there!

My name is Amanda Peterson and I am a wedding, engagement and portrait photographer based in West Michigan near Grand Rapids. I am a single mom to three beautiful, bright, hilarious children. In our our free time we like to eat tacos, watch funny t.v. shows, go to concerts and embark on random adventures. I grew up in the Pacific Northwest near Seattle, and offer wedding and portrait photography in western Washington. I also offer wedding and portrait photography in the Bay Area around San Francisco, California. 

I started out in photography taking photos of nature and my little ones. After a couple years of being encouraged by my family and friends, I decided to start my own photography business in 2016. Soon after that I discovered that I thoroughly enjoy documenting weddings and determined that I should specialize in that area. I like everything about wedding photography; the connection between the couple, the joy shared among family and friends, the chaos of the day and of course, the party at the end. I love to capture all of of the natural moments as well as creating beautiful poses. My goal is to document every wedding in a timeless way that is also unique to each couple. I believe that LOVE is LOVE. All are welcome here!

If you think I would be the right fit for you, please contact me! Select 2019 dates are available and I am now booking 2020 dates.
