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

    I'm Amanda and I'm a professional portrait, event and wedding photographer based out of Northern New Mexico with frequent travels back to the panhandle of Florida. How can this be? To give you a little insight on the gal 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 happiness glistening from the eyes of a family or the brilliant smiles between two newlyweds give me pure joy and I thank God for this gift He has given me."

    In April of 2012, a smooth talking cowboy stole my heart and my residence carrying me to a beautifully remote ranch in the middle of the wild New Mexico mountains. I live with that wonderful man (now husband) 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 have been expanding my business around my new stomping grounds shooting big game hunts, fly fishing trips and making time to relish the incredible experiences I am blessed to have.

    S0- if you’re surrounded by live oaks or palm trees in the South, hiking through the mountains in the West or anywhere in between, give me a shout. I would love to get to know you and create a custom collection to document the love and experiences that make your life beautiful.


Suzanna + Josh | Wedding | Southwood Plantation, FL

Rain. All day long. The weather report called for a downpour on Josh & Suzanna’s wedding day. Most brides would get a bit worked up in this situation, but it seemed Suzanna embraced it. Guests arrived with umbrellas in tow and used rain boots for dancing shoes. The bride and groom spent the morning surrounded with their bridesmaids and groomsmen that kept them entertained and smiling. After many years together, they stay laughing while bringing out the best in each other.

Josh & Suz- Congratulations on your marriage. I have loved getting to know you and your families and felt grateful to be around such welcoming people. Your wedding seriously rocked the Southwood House and I enjoyed watching everyone have an absolute blast. Thank you for having me document your wedding day, you guys are just wonderful together. Hope to see you soon!

HUGE Thanks and love to the incredible, John Gandy Events Team and Unique Video Creations. It was a great privilege and joy working with you.



Morgan + Kyle | Maternity | St. Teresa Beach, FL

This couple. How does one even begin to describe their level of amazing? I met Morgan and Kyle for their engagement session almost 4 years ago and was honored to photograph their wedding not too long after. Now, these two, beautiful people will be bringing a little boy into their world. Both of their families are the most welcoming, giving people you will meet. Baby Wyatt, without a doubt, will be filled to the brim with an abundance of love and adoration. Documenting this circle of life for two people that have touched your life, is truly one of the best gifts a photographer can receive.

Morgan & Kyle, I am over the moon happy for you. You both are going to be incredible parents. It was wonderful seeing you guys and I hope you can convince the family to take a trip out West to come my way sometime soon. Best wishes, see you soon!
