When looking for a photographer for our wedding, my husband and I were quite particular: we wanted someone who could capture who we are as a couple, someone who made us feel comfortable, and someone that could handle a bridal party of 20 PEOPLE!!! I suggested to my husband that we meet with Amber and he said he was totally up for it, but to just be patient because wedding photography is what was really important to him for our wedding.

From the moment with met with Amber, not only did she make us feel comfortable and confident that she could capture our day to our best requests, but she was so incredibly organized and even gave suggestions we didn't even think about! On the day of our wedding, she couldn't have made our experience more fun and more enjoyable than what it was – it was perfect. And our pictures reflect that 150%. The heart and soul this amazing photographer puts into her work (passion) exceeds all expectations. Ambers attention to detail and work ethic truly is exceptional.

We're forever grateful!

We could not of asked for a better photographer! Amber was professional yet goofy so all of our smiles were genuine. At our wedding, she kept things organized and in control because our family, as I like to call it, is like herding cats. She was very good at keeping everyone's attention with her super-woman patience.

The one thing I also loved about Amber besides her awesome personality was her talent. She does awesomely when going with the flow and coming up with great ideas at a drop of a hat. When I got my pictures back { for our Wedding, Maternity, AND Newborn } I was sooo blown away every time! She has a great eye and is very detailed.

We have used her for all our big life moments so far and will continue to use her. Amber is worth every penny and then some!

Amber did an amazing job with our photography. She took the time to meet with us before our wedding to plan each individual shot and kept in contact with us right up until the wedding day. Our pictures turned out so beautiful!!! She definitely has God given talent for photography and working with people. She is so kind and knowledgeable; if we had to choose again we would pick Amber without a doubt!

Consider yourself lucky if you choose Amber Rae Photography. Lucky, because you will have this talented woman with you on your wedding day. Amber is phenomenal to work with. Her eyes are keen, she captures both the candid and the posed with her lens.

Amber knows exactly what is needed in the moment: Reminding the bride to breathe, strictly corralling 17+ family members for a shot, or blending into the background and capturing the mileau: the brief locked eyes, the beautiful big moments, and the humorous things you may not remember in 25 years, she captures them all. Even the most camera shy are made comfortable and able to express themselves under Amber's direction.

She has the innate ability to catch the essence of a couple (as she did with us) in our the first moments as Husband and Wife and the wedding as a whole. And she does this for each of her clients. { I have seen other weddings and events she has shot, and never is her style or pose repeated-- each event is distinctly different, and it shows in her work. }

Amber Rae Photography can be the complete package you are looking for. Not only did she stand in -25 degree weather to shoot our wedding, she custom made announcements and thank you cards, and printed our photos in a beautiful leather bound book! { This was complete with pressed rose petals in the margins, which she had collected from the aisle, "just in case I didn't have a chance to save a few". }

It is this attention to detail, her professionalism, talent, and personality that makes her wonderful to work with. We consider ourselves lucky to have had Amber with us on our wedding day and through the whole process.

One of the most important things to us on our wedding day was our photography. When we were in search of a photographer the first person that came to mind was Amber as I have followed her work over the years. We were SO excited when she said she would photograph our big day! Amber’s style and talent is like no other. She can capture the most intimidate and candid moments and all the pictures look amazing. We really wanted someone who could capture the WHOLE day, the emotions, the candid moments, the love, and Amber was able to do that. Amber worked so flawlessly in the 90 degree heat and craziness our of wedding day making sure we got all the shots we wanted, getting the families and wedding party together without missing a beat. Our family and friends loved her and we received so many compliments! We LOVED having Amber as our photographer and would recommend her again and again.

Working with Amber for our wedding was such an awesome experience! Walking through the forests and fields to capture our amazing engagement photos was a blast. Amber was on Alise and I's side throughout the entire process. She asked us what we wanted and did what she could to deliver. Most of all.. She was a joy to meet and went above and beyond to make us feel like friends, not clients.

Finding the perfect wedding photographer was the number one priority for us. Amber went above and beyond filling that role. From start to finish, Amber did an incredible job with not only the wedding day photos, but also keeping in touch with us even before the wedding day. We couldn't have asked for a more fun, professional, and talented photographer.

The first time I met Amber was one of my closest friend's wedding. She was so laid back and adventurous! So when I was proposed to, she was the first person I thought of, even though I know many other photographers. We met at a coffee shop in the cities and she was so easy to talk to. She was more interested in facts about us as a couple and what we wanted than just the facts about our wedding photography. Our engagement photos were so fun! My husband hates his photo taken and I can tell you, even he had fun!

Honestly, on my wedding day I was so busy that morning that I forgot that our photographer was going to show up at any moment while we were getting ready at our home. But there she was bright eyed and bushy tailed as she drove 1.5 hours south of the cities to our little town.
Leaving our house (naturally a half hour late because I'm THAT person) she tucked me into the back seat of her car and we were off to the location of our first look and group photos. I rode to the church in Amber's car as well. With the chaos and my mind on everything that was going on, I was so thankful when she handed me some water and asked "do you need a drink?". As for the rest of the day, she was constantly asking if I needed anything and she helped me track people down. I feel like she doubled as my personal attendant as well, maybe something she wasn't to fond of but she was a trooper!

All in all, I would recommend Amber for your wedding or any photography needs. Hands down the best option for the chaos of a wedding day!

When we look back at our wedding we realize just how important a skilled photographer is. Amber took hundreds of photos that we will cherish forever! The quality is amazing. She knows how to capture the best moments. Her personality is perfect for weddings. She managed to be a fun joyful presence despite the chaos of coordinating our large wedding party and family. She also perfectly "disappears" in the quiet intimate moments so we could enjoy the moment without being distracted and yet still gets amazing photos without us even noticing! We loved how personal working with Amber felt. All in all, we would (and do) recommend Amber Rae Photography 100%!

Amber did such a wonderful job capturing our special day, which was truly perfect! She was able to get pictures we requested as well as many, many more! I would highly suggest meeting with Amber if you are looking into photographers. She was always very prompt and answered any photography questions, as well as any wedding questions I needed answered! You can tell she has a passion for what she does, and not only does she love photography, but her clients as well! THANK YOU for everything, Amber!!
