Welcome to Amanda K. Smith Photography.
Hi, thank you for checking out my website. I am a wedding and landscape photographer based in Ayrshire.
I have always enjoyed photography since I was a child, taking pictures of friends and family with a Kodak Instamatic. It was when I invested in my first DSLR years later that I found my passion for photography.
2020 has thrown many challenges to us all but it's a year that has allowed me to have time to complete my Diploma in Wedding Photography. This has allowed me to enhance my knowledge not only for wedding photography but also to increase my camera skills.
Why landscape photography? Well, we live in a fast and crazy world full of life's dramas. Having worked in payroll for 20+ years which can sometimes be stressful and challenging, landscape photography allows me to feel free. I can forget the world and just focus on the beautiful scenery around me. We are lucky to live in one of the most beautiful countries in the world and I have been fortunate to travel to some of the most scenic parts of Scotland.
Why wedding photography? It's a magical experience to be a part of a couple's big day. It is one of the best days of their lives and for me to be able to capture the loving moments between a couple as well as the happiness and fun personalities of all the guests and wedding party is very special. Every wedding I have done has been different. From small and intimate weddings to larger wedding parties, each have been unique and have allowed me to gain more confidence and experience to give the very best shots of the day that will give the couple moments that will last forever.
Please have a look around my website and if you think I could be the photographer for you, or if you have any questions, please contact me.
