Effortless imagery & Films for modern romantics


Enduring elegance, meet effortlessly editorial.

Photographs to remind you how hopeless a romantic you truly are (in the best way ever).

Your wedding photographs deserve nothing less. 

And if there’s one thing I admire about you, it’s your uncompromising vision for the meaningful moments: The moments you’ll be called back to again and again. The moments that make a life truly yours. The moments made infinite through the power of photographs. 

So go ahead–sweat the small stuff. Agonize over the details. It’s the romantic in you, after all. 

But at the end of the day, would you promise me one thing? 

Promise you’ll celebrate with reckless abandon. 
Celebrate that no holds barred kind of love for its own sake. 
Celebrate this opportunity to lose yourself in the moment. 
Celebrate knowing you won’t miss a thing–I’ll be there to capture every second. 

(It’s what a hopeless romantic would do.)

Together, we’ll craft photographs that capture your style, story, and sophistication. The best part? We’ll have fun while we do it.

Stunning photos, the level of professionalism is exceptional…her editorial eye is impeccable and above all else, during the event Amara was able to capture all the images we wanted and more but without interrupting the intimacy of the wedding and was able to navigate within the crowd so smoothly throughout the event…purely exceptional and magical experience…I could trust her to capture everything and to guide us in a gentle way that made us feel at ease on a very important day!

Diana & Virginia

Amara has such an incredible eye! We were so happy to have her and her team on our wedding day, the are simply amazing at what they do. We are reliving our entire day with her photos! The details are one of my favorite parts of the gallery & my grandparents are in love with the scenery she captured at their home.

Jackie & Kyle

I highly recommend working with Amara. Besides from being an overall joy to work with, she is an expert at what she does and will truly make your love story come to life. My fiancé and I loved all of the photos she took and can't wait to work with her again for our wedding! Our engagement session was a dream. Amara made us feel so comfortable and I loved how accommodating she was when I suggested a pose or two. Even though it was a chilly day she had such a fantastic attitude which made the experience a lot of fun.

Sarah & Matt

I have been told more times then I can count just how amazing our engagement photos are. People are always asking one for the location and two who took the photos. They can not believe it was at a local location. I believe it is because of how the area was framed and captured. AIP was so accommodating from having to change our photo date due to Covid, to us bringing and having our dogs in our photos. She is the one that picked our location and made my vision become a reality! From the moment we arrived I found her to be so calm, professional and prepared. She already had all the locations and poses selected. Amara made the whole evening move so smoothly. I have nothing but the best things to say and I am so lucky to have been able to have her take my engagement photos!

Lauren & Alex

We never planned on having an engagement session but decided during Corona it's so important to document and celebrate these special moments. We loved that Amara used her expertise to make the photos that much better throughout the session! She was transparent and communicative about the process, diligent about getting the photos turned around and flexible. We always get compliments on the photos and we have prints from our session all over our home.
