Introduction: Please note: My schedule fills up fast if your looking to book within a month of reaching out. If that is you, please be ready to book when you reach out as it is not possible for me to hold dates. Thanks so much! An artistically infused lifestyle Wedding 。Engagement 。Boudoir photographer serving independent & modern clients all over California and then some. A little about me...years ago I finished school and walked away from my bartending job to become what I’ve always wanted to be; a photographer. Most days you can find me spending time with my cat and dog duo, running countless errands or cooking dinner with my husband. My photography style? It’s engaging, enthusiastic and truly authentic. Sincerely you, is my favorite way to describe it. It’s those little moments when you think no one is watching. My favorite is uncontrolled laughter and secret sexy moments, I’m always looking to have a good time with my clients. I promise to make it easy for you, let’s keep it simple but full of passion and real. Sometimes I use lights, sometimes I keep it natural. Every photo shoot is different and I’ll always promise to create timeless images you’ll cherish forever. Yes I travel(safely)! Travel dates: Santa Barbara Engagement - Jan 15-17th Oregon Wedding - July 24th-26th

Amani was awesome! She was fun to work with and even put up with our dog who was being a real brat that day. The photos we got back are incredible.

It was really great having Amani as our photographer during our engagement photoshoot. She was so easy to work with, she made us feel comfortable and had creative ways of making our pictures come out cute. This review is just based off the sneak peeks we got, so you know how good she is if I'm already leaving her review without looking at the rest of our pics! You should book her!
