AMANDA GARDNER

Amanda is a highly energetic wedding and corporate photographer,
born and raised in Atlanta. She has watched Atlanta grow from a small
southern city to the flourishing art-savvy place it has become
and is enjoying the people and culture moving along with it.

Having a strong passion for photojournalism, living in the south has provided the perfect backdrop to be a visual storyteller. The people and their stories drive Amanda to be a better photographer, she believes knowing an individuals story, their past or sharing a laugh with them for 5 minutes is only going to improve the image.

In 2010 she received a degree in commercial photography and began
working as a teaching assistant at Gwinnett Technical College in the
photography department. She has had the privilege of working alongside several heavy hitters in the Atlanta photo community and credits them for her technical abilities and knowledge. Amanda has received a PPA International Silver award and Best Image award in China and has also had the opportunity to work the PPA International Print Competition the last three years. Her motto is to do what you enjoy and enjoy what you do!

Alongside photography you can usually catch Amanda at a local disc
golf course, camping or busting a move on the dance floor at a
bluegrass festival.
