Dayton, OH Wedding at Top of the Market My middle wedding this past weekend was in Dayton, OH. How in the world did I get a Dayton, OH wedding you ask? It starts back in college. Even before I started Amanda May Photos. I went to undergrad at University of the Cumberlands where I played […]

Castleton Farms Engagement Remember at the beginning of last week when we had those really random days of 65-degree highs for the temperature? Yeah, well we got to take these Castleton engagement photos then and it was seriously perfect. I loved getting to know Sarah & Ryan better. My favorite thing about them is how […]

Pavilion at Hunter Valley Farm Wedding This past weekend was one for the books. If you follow along with Amanda May Photos on Instagram, then you saw that I had a triple header weekend. It wasn’t just any triple header weekend though. It looked a little like this…Thursday night I shot this sweet couple’s rehearsal […]

Ramble Creek Bridal Portraits I am seriously in awe over the light that we had at this GORGEOUS bride’s Ramble Creek bridal session. Also, this venue. I’ve shot one other wedding at Ramble Creek, but it was a December wedding. So, it looked totally different. Still so pretty, but so different. By the time you […]

Intimate WindRiver Wedding Lori and Greg had a small, intimate WindRiver wedding last weekend. I talked with Lori on the phone, but we did not meet in person until the wedding day. There was one thing that immediately stood out to me…how joyful she is. She is joyful with thanksgiving, joyful with excitement, and it […]

Melton Hill Park Senior and Family This blog post is going to look a little bit different because this session was a little bit different. I had the privilege of photographing both the Bullard family and Natalie one evening last week at Melton Hill Park. The last couple years I have run a special on […]

When I was pregnant with Grayson, I didn’t even want maternity pictures. I took them because I didn’t want to regret not taking them, but I swelled so terribly and hated how big I got. There was no way I wanted to document that. I did anyways, and I’m so thankful because I love seeing […]

Forks of the River Senior Pictures You know those famous sunflower fields in TN that shower your news feeds every summer? Did you notice that they weren’t there last year? Yeah, I didn’t either until I started looking into it for this year and saw where Forks of the River did not harvest the sunflower […]

Cardwell Manor Wedding This venue hasn’t been open a long time… a year I think. This was my first Cardwell Manor wedding and therefore, is the first interaction I’ve had with this team. Let me tell you guys… I was impressed. This venue offers an “all inclusive” option. Which means they are doing the rentals, […]

Baxter Gardens Portraits Seems like every single time I shot Baxter Gardens Portraits this year, there was perfect lighting. Gabby & Zach’s engagement session was no exception. But I want to spend a little bit of this post talking about outfit choices. Gabby and Zach’s clothing was SO on point with the location. I always […]

Holston Hills Country Club Wedding You know what was really great about this Holston Hills Country Club wedding? How slow paced it was. I cannot tell you how long it’s been since I had a slow wedding day. Nobody was frantically rushing around, stressing, sweating, or irritable because we all had plenty of time to […]

Downtown Engagement Session So, this couple has one really awesome story behind how they met. Besides the fact that they are both engineers (which, ironically enough, I have a ton of engineers as my couples), they both did a study abroad in Prague. I don’t think there’s any better way to fall in love than […]

Easter 2019 Since I started dating Dustin in 2008, we always travel to his hometown in Somerset, KY to celebrate Easter with his family. They are truly the all-American family with lots of aunts, uncles, and cousins who truly enjoy being together. Of course, you will always find someone napping after the feast, but for […]

Downtown Somerset, KY Family Pictures It’s hard to believe that I photographed Kathryn and Spenser’s wedding almost 6 years ago. I looked back at those pictures, and these two have literally not changed one little bit. You know me, and you know how I love coming back to my AMP couples and shooting them again. […]

Melton Hill Park Family Session Tristan and Brandon Blair are from North Carolina, but they have lived in Rutledge, TN for a little over a year now.
