Welcome to our corner of the web. Amanda's Imagery was started by me in 2007 and is owned and operated by my husband, Jordon, and I. It all started in Sioux Falls, SD as a creative outlet while I was in college. I have always been fascinated by light and shadows in nature and architecture… hence drawn to photography from a very young age. I submitted my first competition piece in 5th grade and starting photoshop work as a high school freshmen.
In college, I had the opportunity to study abroad at Oxford University. I studied History and Art History and was captivated by the architecture and landscape of this beautiful city through my camera lens. Upon returning home, I made the decision to take my photo business more full time and after graduating college.
Early on, I realized the passion I had for story telling through imagery. With a blending of structure and whimsy, I continue to do my best to tell my client's stories and preserve their special moments. It is a passion and honor to continue doing this work that I love as a small local business.
Jordon started working more closely with the studio in 2015. Jordon is a pharmacist by day, but has a keen eye for capturing candid moments and works with me on select weddings and events as well as behind the scenes. In 2008, Jordon and I got married. In August of 2010, we had a little girl named Nieva (Knee-Ava). In July of 2017, we had our second child, a little boy named Indy. I am also a certified Yoga instructor. Together, we love meeting new people, traveling, music, art, and of course photographing.
We are available for events and portraits in the Sioux Falls area and beyond with experience shooting well over 100 weddings in the Sioux Falls area as well as far away as Florida, Mexico and Australia.
