I specialize in drinking chai tea lattes, and watching Gilmore Girls reruns! I also specialize in capturing the story & scenery of your celebration.
As an elopement and wedding photographer in Grand Junction, my mission is to preserve your favorite moments in beautiful images for you to relive those moments of life that fly by too fast.
A Little About Me...
I believe there’s no better sight than the night sky at 10,000 feet.
I also believe you should be able to be authentically you on your wedding day. Whether that’s an off-beat elopement or non-traditional wedding celebration, I strive to capture each genuine moment.
I strive to capture the day as it unfolds, every candid moment to perfectly preserve your story. Beyond photographs, I have been in this business for 10 years and love to help take away the stress of planning that can come by offering my expertise and insight along the way.
states I've visited
couples i've worked with
(and counting) moose I've seen!
episodes of gilmore girls binged
I’m originally from Iowa, and love meeting people with the same connection – it’s a small world!
I am obsessed with spotting moose in the wild. Eric (the hubs) buys me something moose related whenever I see one!
One of my bucket list goals is to visit every state in the US, and I’m over halfway there!
My first word was cheese and I’m still an addict to this day
I’m always thrilled to serve LGBTQ+ celebrations!
I believe Black Lives Matter.
If I could only visit one other country in my life, it would be Greece
I’m totally a crazy cat lady at heart, even though we only have one at the moment.
Yes, I have seen the entire Gilmore Girls series (and the new ones!) multiple times, and yes, I’d love to talk about that ending with you!
Yep! I travel for a bunch of my celebrations each year. I keep local near Grand Junction and Moab in the winter, but frequently spend my season in Ouray, Crested Butte, Aspen and beyond!
I am lucky to live in Grand Junction, Colorado! We’re blessed with incredible locations to photograph right in our backyard, but also just a short trip into the Rocky Mountains or over to the desert of Moab!
Yes! I cull through all the images and retouch them to my style (I like to call it vibrant and timeless!) and deliver the final images in an online gallery.
Fill out my contact form below and I'll send over my specific pricing guide for the services you're interested in. From there we'll meet by phone/Zoom to make sure we're a good fit! Once you know I'm the one for you, I'll send over an invoice and agreement by email to save your date.
Friendly and AFFIRMING! I don't just document LGBTQIA2S couples - I celebrate your love with you. I've helped lovers document their love before it was even legal federally and will always be on your side.
I started Amanda Matilda Photography in 2012! Before that I second shot under some pros to get a better understanding of what went into documenting weddings.
Yep! Elopements are always planned by me (unless you've hired a planner as well) and I help you with tailored location guides, activity ideas to make your day special, crafting the perfect timeline so you can enjoy every moment, Area Guides so you can explore the area like a local, vendor recommendations for pros to help bring your dreams to life, and more.
You'll have an extensive sneak peek within 48 hours of your celebration so you can relive the moments and share with loved ones. Your full online gallery will be available within 4-6 weeks after your big day.
