HAVE PASSPORT WILL TRAVEL

As I begin to map out my calendar for 2018, I am leaving room for plenty of travel!  I've had the honor and privilege to travel with several clients over the years and always loved creating portraits that felt more magazine and fine art in style.  

In case you missed the announcement with all of the holiday excitement, I am opening my calendar to five weddings in 2018 along with photographing destination personal branding photo shoots and wellness / fitness retreats.

If you are planning a destination wedding - let's chat!  We've traveled to several amazing locations throughout the years and I'd love to discuss how we can document your wedding and provide you with an incredible collection of photographs that showcase your destination wedding. 

Kelsey - Headshots and Personal Branding Photography - Amanda Kraft Photography

Allow me introduce you to Kelsey.  I had the pleasure of photographing Kelsey before the holidays and have been patiently waiting to share this collection of photographs from her personal branding / headshot photo shoot.  The timing of her photo shoot couldn't have been better as we scheduled the photo shoot for the week she graduated from Penn State!  WE ARE..... PENN STATE! 

Kelsey will be taking the stage later this winter for her first ever TedTalk on Mental Health in the media and I couldn't be more excited to watch/hear her speak.  When she isn't busy with college classes and preparing for her presentation she is also a Miss Pennsylvania Contestant.  

I am very excited to see what the future has in store for her, because I know it's going to be incredible!

Elizabeth - HHS - CLASS OF 2018 - AMANDA KRAFT PHOTOGRAPHY

Allow me to introduce you to my new friend Elizabeth!  We had an absolute blast working together and couldn't have had a better day for her fall high school senior portraits.  Our morning began with hair & makeup at the studio and then ventured to Central Market and County Park for locations we used.  

We seriously hit the lighting jackpot during her photo shoot with beautiful morning lighting and the portraits taken in the black & white striped dress with the brown boots are my absolute favorite!

Happy New Year and Wedding News

"We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love."

Robert Fulghum

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I can't believe it's the start of 2018 when just yesterday it felt like the start of 2004 when I launched my photography business and began traveling the globe photographing weddings.

I might not be photographing as many weddings these days, but I decided to open my calendar to 5 wedding bookings for 2018! If you or someone you know has recently gotten engaged and are looking for a photographer please feel free to share my portfolio with them.

Of course, I'll happily travel or stay local - but when it feels like 3 degrees you can't help but dream of traveling for a warm tropical destination wedding.

MASON - HHS - CLASS OF 2018 - AMANDA KRAFT PHOTOGRAPHY

It's not often that I photograph high school senior guys, but I always welcome the challenge.  Mason was a great sport and knew what to expect since I had photographed both of his older sisters during their senior years of high school. 

We created a signature album with his photographs and below are a few sample pages.  I can't wait to share the wall collage that we created as well.
