If I could give Amaris photo 10/5 I would. She vastly exceeded my expectations for wedding photography. From our first phone conversation (which lasted over 90 minutes), I knew she was the right fit. We immediately had a fun connection and I knew our special day was going to be more than just pretty pictures. Amaris walked me through each step of the planning and organizing process and did a better job prepping me than my wedding planner did. Amaris was on top of everything and had a backup plan to the backup plan. She was professional and fun and made me feel more like a bride than anyone else on my squad. I don't do well being in the spot light but she had me feeling like a goddess all day long. She took notes on my personality throughout the months of planning and she planned a surprise for us with our wedding party. Everything about the day was heartfelt and just for us. She was more than just part of the day's team and crew, she absolutely has become an amazing friend and I would MORE than HIGHLY recommend her for all of your photography needs. Oh, did I mention that she ended the night by dancing with me and my friends?! I mean, WHO DOES THAT. Someone who has a damn good time doing their job. She puts her heart into every picture and my goodness does it show. I cannot wait to book Amaris again for all of our families photo needs.

Amaris has photographed our family for the last 7 years, from headshots to engagement, wedding, and now our daughter’s wedding. She brings amazing energy to the shoot, handles ornery kids so well, and makes even the most camera shy person feel comfortable. She captures essence, and makes it shine. Generous and funny, I would recommend her to all my friends! And I have. And they love her too.
Meals On Wheels
Amaris arrived on our Meals on Wheels of Summerville doorstep wearing invisible wings offering to help deliver meals during COVID. Then she pulled out her camera and the magic began. Amaris captured the essence of our mission, our recipients and their pets, our staff and our hearts. She is a beautiful soul I have had the pleasure of getting to know both personally and professionally. Thank you Amaris for sharing your talents with Meals on Wheels and for shining so brightly during these hard times!

Amaris is AMAZING. She's joyful, professional, and oh so good at her job. We traveled with Amaris for our destination wedding in Malta, plus had her at our impromptu elopement in Washington, D.C., and couldn't be happier.
She was truly connected to our vision for our wedding and what we cared about, and she made sure that the entire day, not just the photos, would be a success. (Seriously...she touched up my make up and gave advice on day-of planning).
PS She also has an amazing team supporting her AND you, so you always feel taken care of. It's a given that you'll laugh every time you receive an email from her or see her in person. Use Amaris for your photography - you'll be ecstatic with the results.

Lemme tell you about Amaris. She will have you chilling out instead of stressing out and cracking up both on and off camera. She will wrangle your family from A to B in her get-shit-done-but-simultaneously-hilarous kinda way. And then, she'll deliver stunning images that capture all the magic of your day, of your family and friends and all the moments that unfold between them. Doesn't matter if it's on a mountaintop at sunset or in a parking garage (not making that up, some of my favorite photos of my husband and I she literally made in a parking garage). So basically if you're looking for someone you can trust to capture you and your loved ones on a special occasion or just on a Thursday afternoon, and have a total blast throughout... HIRE HER!
Ok so solo dad here !! Amaris made this the most painless thing I have done with my little girl. She made it fun and I even had a 9 week old puppy we threw in the mix for extra flavor ( and cuteness). I was shocked how my little girl responded to Amaris and she was so easy going. Thank you again for a great papa session!!

As soon as I saw some of her pictures, I knew she was exactly what I was looking for and I am SO happy she was available for my wedding day. She was amazing to work with throughout the entire process and went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. She was willing to meet up at a location close to 2 hours from Charleston to capture some amazing engagement/family pictures that are jaw dropping-ly gorgeous due to her skills and for my wedding day, she was a superhero. She was so helpful in keeping everyone including myself on pace as well as making sure I felt as relaxed as possible and away from the pre-wedding chaos at the venue. She captured some absolutely beautiful shots and was super flexible with my husband's and my requests such as a first look/private vow reading which resulted in some of my favorite photos. Her positive attitude and great sense of humor are infectious and most definitely is something anyone needs when having incredible pictures captured. I couldn't have been more pleased to have been able to work with Amaris and I look forward to her capturing more family pictures in the future.

Amaris is so talented. And a true gem. When you work with her, you're not only getting one amazing photographer with huge talent, but also an amazing human being with a huge heart for life and people. At my wedding, we had issues with our coordinator, and Amaris and her team went above and beyond to make the day run as smoothly and stress-free as possible. So thankful for Amaris and the stunning photos she took for our special day.

We couldn’t recommend Amaris more as a wedding photographer. Amaris listened to us and delivered beyond what we could have dreamed. She is an absolute professional, yet fun and easy going. She goes above and beyond her clients wishes to make them happy. Amaris came all the way to Seattle for our engagement photos and took the time to actually hang out with us beforehand. It put us at ease to grab drinks and just chat. As a result, all of our photos are beautifully composed as well as relaxed. I consider Amaris a friend and not just a photographer. Anyone looking should stop here because she is by far the best.

Amaris is an extremely talented photographer. So talented, in fact, that I asked her to fly in for my wedding in France! No one else would do. The moments she was able to capture were breathtaking and I'm so thankful I had her there. Not only did she provide beautiful photos, but her knowledge of wedding planning and organization was incredibly helpful. I'd recommend Amaris in a heartbeat.

Amaris does wonderful work. She puts in the time to make you comfortable in front of her lens. She dedicates the resources necessary to produce the best outcome. We are so pleased with our overall experience and I would go out of my way to recommend her for your photography needs!

Amaris is such a wonderful photographer. I knew even before I was engaged that she was the only person I would ever want to photograph my wedding. Amaris helped make my day absolutely perfect. She captured not only the photos, but the feelings of that day. I look back and I can see every emotion each person felt during the day- joy, love, and hope. It is my joy to have her photos displayed across my house, because they show the love my husband and I have for each other. Thank you Amaris for being apart of our day (and life).
