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.

Amy + Thomas | Wedding | Goodwood Gardens, FL

Just some of the simple pleasures of life…good friends, honest family and plenty of laughs were all the day needed to compliment Amy & Thomas’s already beautiful wedding day. The sun was shining with a light breeze when they exchanged their vows in the gardens of Goodwood. Amy’s sassy wit paired with Thomas’ down to earth demenaor make them a couple that anyone can appreciate and enjoy knowing.

Amy & Thomas, thank you guys for having me photograph such a special time in your lives. You both felt like friends and I enjoyed being a part of your wedding day. Cheers to many years together and I hope our paths cross again sometime soon!


The Sullivan Family | Portraits | Tallahassee, FL

When we first met at Maclay Gardens, Cameron was about the age of his little brother, Sawyer. It is endearing to see parents, Parker & Ryon literally tag team these boys working as a unit to keep their family happy and safe. Cameron has energy for days, but never too much to have the time to give Sawyer a good hug.

It was great seeing you guys and BOTH boys. Thank you for reaching out and giving me the treat of photographing your family again. Have a lovely holiday season and hope to see ya’ll again soon!

Take a look back at earlier years..

Taylor & Austin | Portraits | Tallahassee, FL

And here he is all grown up and so sweet. Most little boys shy away from having their photo taken, he must just be conditioned from all the photo shoots over the years. Parents Taylor and Chris have raised him into a sharp, caring boy.

TJ- I love you, friend. You are such an incredible mom and person. Thank you for allowing me to photograph handsome AJ. Bring on the tears and check out your previous sessions…
