Amanda Howell Photography bio picture
  • Welcome to the home page for Amanda Howell Photography

    I'm Amanda and I'm a professional portrait and wedding photographer serving the Tallahassee, Florida and surrounding areas while branching out to northern New Mexico & southern Colorado. How can this be? To give you a little insight to the person behind the lens...

    I started my business in 2010 while working for a local bank in Tallahassee, Florida. A newfound passion led me to begin photographing my dog and any other individual that would allow it. After a couple of years of steady learning, combined with some of my incredible clients' trust and loyalty, I was able to cultivate my dream and love for this art into reality.

    "I use an unobtrusive approach to my photography to best produce images evolved from natural emotions. Preserving the memory of that one baby giggle or the gleaming happiness between a bride and groom give me pure joy and I thank God for this gift He has given me."

    In April of 2013, I moved from Florida to work on a ranch in the middle of the wild New Mexico mountains. I live with my fiance' and 2 crazy dogs and am shooting in a way I never would have imagined. I fly back to Florida every couple of months to shoot weddings for couples that end up being friends and families that always remind me of why I love what I do. As of now, I am working on expanding my business around my new stomping grounds and finding time to relish the incredible experiences I am blessed to have.

    S0- if you’re surrounded by palm trees in Florida, hiking through the mountains in New Mexico or anywhere in between, I would love to meet you and document the love and experiences that make your life beautiful.


Lexi + Kees: Engagement {Vermejo Park Ranch, NM}

Planning a Wisconsin wedding set in May , Lexi and Kees are beginning their journey together. A funny look from Lexi instantly brings Kees to a smile and their blue eyes just glisten. As a true gentlemen, he did not hesitate to swoop up his fiancé’ to carry her across the fields during their engagement session.

Lexi & Kees- You guys are troopers. Through the continued rain, you both were always sunny and upbeat. Thank you for such a great time and giving me the joy of photographing you two. Congratulations and I wish you both all the happiness you can hold.

Lexi & Kees: Engagement {Vermejo Park Ranch, NM}

A stormy evening forced us to reschedule our engagement session…but not without first capturing some love between these two.

Lexi- I’ll be doing the preventative rain dance until we meet again!

Hart Williford - Yum I am missing those evening manhattans and pheasant dinners.

Marcus + Olivia: Wedding {Honey Lake Plantation, FL.}

Kind. If one word had to describe this couple, ‘kind’ would be it. They have a way about them that could make anyone feel welcomed and loved. Marcus & Olivia met at the hospital doing what they do best, caring for people. The nurse with the gorgeous, sparkling eyes stopped the doc in his tracks. After telling his mother, “Mom, there’s just something different about her”- it was not long until their life long romance and friendship began. They have two, handsome and smart little boys that continually keep them smiling along with their regular fishing and hunting trips. A couple that plays together, stays together.

Olivia & Marcus,

Your wedding and every detail was absolutely beautiful to photograph. But, I honestly enjoyed watching the way you two just move together the most. You are so in tuned to each other and it is wonderful to see. I hope you enjoyed every minute of your fantastic day and I hope to see you guys soon!
