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.


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!

Ingenious Medical Group 1: Corporate Event {Vermejo Park Ranch, NM}

Ingenious Med is a prime example of the rewards that stem from treating your own employees and clients as family. These people share their genuine care freely, impacting each and every person they meet. Based out of Atlanta, Georgia, CEO and president, Hart Williford shows his deep appreciation by treating his employees and clients to a one of a kind vacation every year. This year, Vermejo was the lucky destination. They filled their trip to the brim with fly fishing, nature touring, skeet shooting and the highlight of the trip-prairie dog hunting. They were an incredible group of people that appreciated all of the beauty and fun Vermejo has to offer.

Hart, Dee, Bree and all the the rest of you wonderful people-

Your passion, drive and generosity that radiates from each of you is truly inspiring. Keith & I both agree, we are so thankful to have had the opportunity to spend such a great week with you guys.  Thank you for all of the laughs and love you shared and we hope to see you again soon. Best wishes for a great rest of the year!
