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.

The Miller Family {Red River, NM}

I left my time with the Miller family with a smile on my face and warmth in my heart. They vacationed from Oklahoma and rented a cabin for some quality time together in the mountain town of Red River, New Mexico. As a belated Mother’s day gift, Mom was given what every mother wants- family pictures of the family that she is so proud of.

To each of you guys- THANK YOU for letting me play a part in such a great celebration. You guys reminded me of why I love photographing families and it was a real treat. Hope ya’ll had a wonderful rest of your trip and I hope our paths cross again sometime soon!

Alex + Sterling: Engagement {Vermejo Park Ranch, NM}

A  college football player and track athlete seem like a natural fit for any power couple. They met in high school and while different colleges forced them to part ways, their love stayed strong. Alex’s spirit is as kind as her vibrant, blue eyes and Sterling keeps them sparkling while she laughs at his goofy antics.

Alex, my friend, you are wonderful in so many ways. I have loved getting to know you and will miss you dearly when you go back to school. I hope you guys enjoy every minute of this exciting time!
