Remember Where We Started?
Amanda McCollum Photography started in 2013. Because Amanda's husband is a member of the military, she had the opportunity to live overseas. While in Korea she finally had some downtime and her photography business started to evolve and grow after spending a solid year taking classes on photography and investing in better equipment. Shortly after, Amanda narrowed in on the focus of creating a positive experience and capturing precious moments for passionate couples and adventurous families.
Amanda had modeled for a while and always wanted to know what it was like to be on the other side of the camera. While working on her bachelor's degree and pregnant with her first daughter she started to feel aimless and needed a creative outlet that gave her purpose. With the support of her husband who encouraged her to find something she was passionate about, together they went to Target to pick out her first camera. Motivated to capture fleeting moments in her own family's life, Amanda has made it her mission to provide other families and couples with the simple luxury of capturing sacred time in a photograph.
