"For me, photography is about savoring the beauty in life. Shooting weddings is my favorite thing in the whole world. It combines my background in photojournalism (I never miss a shot!) with my love for beautiful portraiture...and at the end there's a dance party to capture!"
Amanda Maglione opened her wedding photography business in Charlottesville, Virginia, after a ten-year career in NYC as a photojournalist, celebrity photographer, and photo editor. She brings this background to her wedding photography, and is known for her photojournalistic/documentary style.
"Well balanced from top to bottom, highly skilled photographer. Now when you combine that knowledge and experience with her affable nature and charm you can't go wrong. She is not only super talented but also down to earth, sweet, intelligent and a truly genuine person. When you meet her you immediately feel at ease. I was blessed to have her shoot my wedding. Stunning images and knows when to capture the decisive moment." (Christian, NYC)
"We could not have asked for a better photographer! Amanda was very professional and easy-going while photographing both our private ceremony and larger reception. She made us feel so comfortable posing for photos and captured amazing candids as well. She asked all the right questions to make sure that she captured everything we wanted in a way that we loved. The photographs were so beautiful that we could not stop looking at them! Amanda has a knack for finding beautiful backdrops and settings. At our reception she really worked the room and got so many stunning shots as well as fun candids. We got photos for sharing online so quickly and received all of our high resolution pictures in a very timely manner as well. If you are trying to find a trustworthy photographer, we could not recommend Amanda highly enough!"
" Thank you Sara and Zach! I was so honored to be one of the ONLY people to witness your ceremony (me, the innkeeper and the officiant!) I'm so glad I got to capture that beautiful day for you. And it was awesome to see you letting loose with all of your friends and family days later at the reception party! Thanks for your kind words. "
