"She’s not the person we’ve all experienced (yelling at us to get in photos), she is there to take in the experience everyone is having, and her photos capture that.

Amber came all the way to France for our wedding and was there for 3 whole days! She became part of the gang and made everyone very COMFORTABLE in front of the camera!

Can’t recommend enough!!!"
