I'm a Toronto Wedding Photographer with Filipino and Chilean roots. I'm obsessed with musicals, entrepreneurship and escape rooms. I've been keepin' it real since 1990.

I've always had a passion for photography, which I first discovered as a kid obsessed with disposables. But it wasn't until 2011 when I picked up my first DSLR camera did I really fall in love with the art of photography.
I bought this camera because I started a music blog! Being a music blogger was a ton of fun and introduced me to the exciting world of concert photography and entrepreneurship. On a side note, I also got to meet many of my favourite bands and artists, including Basia Bulat, The Head and the Heart, Deer Tick, Fitz & The Tantrums, Florence and the Machine, and more. I wanted to continue working in the music industry at the time and so I decided to go back to school for public relations.

I wish I could give her more than 5 stars because she deserves all the praise.
Her bright smile and positive attitude made our day feel even more special! My husband and I are not camera people at all as in we don’t really like to be photographed but Amanda was so professional that she put us at ease the moment we met her.
Once I got to college, my goals changed a bit. I got a job in student affairs and I discovered my love for telling stories as a digital content creator and later as a digital communications coordinator. Having access to all of the gear at the college as an employee allowed me the opportunity to master my craft as a photographer and story teller.
During the last year of my program, I met the love of my life - Rob! We got engaged 3 years into dating and when it came to hiring a wedding photographer, I knew exactly what I was looking for - which was a good and bad thing because I was a bit picky! I knew wanted someone who was more than just a skilled artist. I wanted someone who would support us every step of the way (wedding planning was hard!) and make us feel at ease in front of the camera. As an interracial couple, it was also essential that we found a photographer who knew how to capture our love story in a way that honoured our skin tones and celebrated our diversity.
But during our search, I was disheartened to discover that the wedding industry lacked diversity. I realized that many couples, especially those who identified as 2SLGBTQIA+, people of colour, or from different backgrounds, were not being represented. So when I ultimately decided to become a wedding photographer, I made a commitment to create a supportive environment and to be as inclusive as possible to all couples, no matter who they love, how they identify, or what they look like.
5 years later, my goal as a wedding photographer remains the same: create a supportive and inclusive wedding photography experience for all couples because I believe that every love story deserves to be told and celebrated. So if you're looking for a wedding photographer who will not only take beautiful photos but will also make you feel supported and comfortable every step of the way, I'd love to chat with you more about how I can help bring your vision to life.
My 'why' &
Rob is the best! He is calm, collected and ALWAYS has a smile on his face. He works full-time as a 3D Modelling Trainer with A Trimech Company and teaches companies how to get the most out of SolidWorks. He studied Industrial Design and has always dreamed of being a professor and so this role has been SO good for him.
As a photographer, Rob is really great at capturing intimate moments and details. Often times I’m very focused on the couple and the big picture but Rob will always come in and capture the rest of the story from the perspective of the guests. After shooting a wedding I always love going through his captures and I guarantee you will too!

"Throughout the months of planning, Amanda was always there, checking in and offering any advice or recommendations we might need. She was not only our photographer but she became our friend, too!
Her style of shooting was not only professional but felt easy and fun! All of our guests (and us!) loved her candid shots throughout the reception - it's so fun to see the day from another set of eyes."
