KIND WORDS FROM CLIENTS

“Amy has taken photos for me several times now and I can honestly say that she is the BEST! Not only are her photos absolutely gorgeous, but her positivity and radiant personality are such a breath of fresh air. It's not an easy task to feel comfortable in front of a camera when you're not used to it, but it's hard to feel awkward when you're laughing and just having fun! Amy isn't only offering beautiful photos, she's offering an experience that everyone should have. I would absolutely recommend her 110%”
- Katelin Billingsley

“My experience with Amy was fantastic to say the least. She was prepared, had amazing ideas, and was so encouraging! I'm usually a bit more on the camera-shy side of things, but Amy's obvious knowledge and encouragement made me feel comfortable and excited. She's incredible and the finished products were better than I could have asked for! I am definitely recommending her to everyone I know."
- Elise Garrison

"Amy is a truly talented photographer with a great personality. I dreaded taking senior portraits, because I hate being on the other side of the camera, but Amy made it a fun experience and the photos turned out amazing! I can't thank her enough. I will definitely return in the future for any other photo shoots."
- Hannah Peeler

“Our experience with Amy was amazing. She was very quick, yet super thorough and the most relaxed photographer we have ever had! We felt so at ease. Past experiences with photo sessions we have felt stiff, rigid and posed. That was so not the case with Amy! We felt completely natural and the result were some amazing photos that truly captured our family's personality, even the people in our family who typically hate photo sessions. She has a wonderful natural eye. We could not be happier with our photos. In addition to the shoot itself, she was incredibly quick to share the actual photos- we did not have to wait long to see them which was also amazing.”

MEET YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER
hello- my name is amy aldridge. i have been a photography fanatic since i was a little girl, & i have been focusing on portrait/lifestyle photography since 2012. what started out as snapping a few photos for some of my friend's senior portraits turned into an artistic passion that i intend on doing for the rest of my life.
aside from taking photos, i absolutely love being outdoors: hiking, camping, exploring- you name it. my husband & i adore exploring the beautiful hidden gems of northern california with our three pups: kyro, spud, and frog. When we aren't out adventuring, we enjoy spending time with our families, working on our street bikes, tending to our yard, and playing skyrim.
during the weekdays, i work as an office manager at our family owned & operated business alongside my husband and my father. whenever i get a chance i dabble in floristry & enjoy integrating it into my photography work whenever i get the chance. it is my mission to capture genuinely authentic moments & to reflect my client's individuality in every photo i take. my style is warm, candid, & natural. 
i have recently stepped back from *traditional* photography work, and i am putting more of a focus on special projects that spark my creativity. if you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment with me, please visit my contact page for further information. 
thank you for stopping by!
