Oh boy...Where to even begin with this girl! She is AMAZING! Amanda invests so much time and love into her clients. My husband and I absolutely LOVE her to pieces! About 4 months ago, I met Amanda through Facebook messenger when I saw that she was a local photographer. I knew that my (now husband) was about to propose, so I reached out to Amanda to see if she would be able to schedule us in for pictures. She was such a sweet, warm and friendly girl, and we instantly bonded. I talked her up to my husband, and he couldn't wait to meet this wonderful girl who we would soon have the pleasure of calling our FRIEND. When my husband told her about how he planned to propose, Amanda called off of work and drove 45 minutes to the site of the proposal to surprise me with pictures of that special moment! Wow! What an unbelievable blessing! We did an engagement shoot shortly after, and Amanda was so creative in how she set up the shoot and captured some of my FAVORITE shots! If that isn't enough, she booked a second shooter to come all the way from FLORIDA to help her shoot our wedding. She had our fully edited pictures back to us within a few days to a week each time we met with her. She is flexible with scheduling, extremely sweet, professional and passionate about her work and building relationships with her clients. Using any other photographer would be a mistake. Please support Amanda and her growing business. She is wonderful!!
"ABSOLUTELY EXCELLENT! WOW!"
Mermaid Lake Photography is my absolute favorite and go to for any photos I need! She took photos for my music career, the Marine Corps Ball with my now Husband, and my wedding! I love how quick she is with such a creative eye. She always makes you feel comfortable. The colors and textures of the photographs are always stellar and the lighting is perfect, bright but never washed out. She had always gotten back the photos to me in a very timely manner and I appreciate her quick responses. She truly takes the most beautiful moments in life and captures them forever! I’m in love with Mermaid Lake Photography and highly recommend her!
Amanda and Mermaid Lake Photography was everything I could have asked for and more. I first met Amanda at a bridal expo but it was literally 3 weeks after I got engaged and still 20 months out from our wedding so we didn’t book anything. I met her again at another bridal show 8 months later and knew she was who I wanted for my special day. Her professionalism and timeliness are outstanding. I had all of my engagement photos the SAME NIGHT as our shoot as well as my entire wedding album within days of our wedding. I will suggest Amanda and Mermaid Lake to anyone I know in the future.
"A DREAM TO WORK WITH"
My husband and I chose our wedding venue mainly because of the beautiful garden out back. We had envisioned a dreamy cocktail hour out there and looked forward to lots of pictures in front of the vine covered brick wall. Unfortunately, a thunderstorm thwarted our plans, so we decided to run it back for our one year anniversary! We got dressed back in our wedding attire and had a candlelit dinner for just the two of us in that garden.
Mandy was our photographer for the evening and she made us feel so at ease. She was prompt, patient, kind, easy going and took creative shots. We had our kids join us for the photo shoot before dinner and she was just wonderful with them. She wanted to keep shooting until she got the right shot and we are so grateful for that because she captured SO many beautiful moments for us to cherish.
After the pictures were taken, she turned them around and got us the digitital files very quickly.
Love love LOVE her and Mermaid Lake Photography! Thanks Mandy!!
