"We had a fantastic session with Amanda recently to take some family photos. She was so sweet and patient with us, especially with our two year old daughter. In fact, she made such a great impression that our daughter has asked us multiple times since then when Amanda will be back to play. The photos came out beautifully and we had a ton to choose from. I highly recommend Amanda!"

"I used Amanda as my wedding photographer. The wedding was absolutely perfect, and thanks to Amanda, I have the pictures to prove it! Amanda's sweet demeanor put everyone at ease, making for gorgeous portraits and extremely special candid shots. The small moments that she was able to capture between me and my now husband brought tears to my eyes. She captured the essence of us, and I will always be grateful. You will not go wring by hiring Amanda to capture your special day."

"Amanda is amazing to work with! We had so much fun at the shoot, and we got so many beautiful pictures, it was almost impossible to pick our favorites! All our friends and family who saw the pictures were in love. We are definitely going to make this a yearly tradition!"

'I just wanted to write and say what a pleasure Amanda was to work with on the newborn photo shoot of my baby son earlier this month!
Our 2-yr old daughter was there - having a 2 yr old's tantrum!! - and I don't know how she did it, but Amanda got some amazing photos of her with her new brother! All of the photos were so beautiful!
Amanda is just terrific!! If you are in need of a photographer, hire her! She is very creative and can get great photos of even the most difficult of 2-yr old little subjects!
Thank you Amanda for your wonderful work!!!"

"Amanda is a real pro. I went into the wedding process knowing that, above all else, I wanted good and interesting photos. She was recommended through a colleague, we met, and I immediately felt at ease. The entire process stayed easy as she is patient beyond compare. My family adored her. My husband's family relaxed around her. Amanda didn't miss a shot. We got all of the standard family poses (which are beautiful and professional and will be treasured for years), but her creative candids are some of our favorites. The very first shots she got of my husband and I walking through the rain toward City Hall are brilliant- and the quality just went up from there. Highest praise from the guests was that she was everywhere without ever being in the way. Highest praise from my husband is that hiring Amanda was the best money spent out of the entire wedding budget. We hope to have her shoot all of our milestones in the future."

"Amanda Taraska is an incredibly talented photographer. I've done several photo shoots with her, and we've gotten amazing pictures each time. Amanda has a real gift for capturing moments. She knows when to let things happen naturally and when to jump in and create a pose or spark a laugh, and she uses light beautifully. Amanda is great with both kids and adults. She's very professional, flexible and patient. I can't recommend her highly enough."
