Conversations with Amanda Abbott

Today we’d like to introduce you to Amanda Abbott.

Hi Amanda, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
I am a photographer and local from sunny San Diego, California! I started doing landscape photography many years ago. My love of nature photography turned into a love for lifestyle photography when I got many requests to take family and couple photos. I said yes and never looked back. I have now done all kinds of shoots from newborn, maternity, and family to elopements, engagements, and weddings while also keeping up with my landscape photography! I am so passionate about photography and the people I meet along the way. I am honored to create memories that will last generations for couples and families in San Diego County and beyond.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
This has truly been such a learning experience and I have come such a far away from where I began. Through trial and error, I have developed a personal style and techniques that I am extremely proud of.

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
I do lifestyle photography. That means couples, engagements, elopements, weddings, family, newborn, maternity, graduation, solo, and business shoots. I am known for my glowing golden bohemian photos. People are really attracted to my style because I don’t over-edit my photos. I leave a natural tone to the photos and I don’t photoshop body’s or faces.

I am most proud of the amount I have learned and grown both as a person and a photographer. I have had the privilege of meeting and working with so many amazing people, learning their stories, and creating beautiful memories. Something that sets me apart from others is the amount of enthusiasm that I give to each shoot. I invest myself entirely into making sure each client has thorough, clear communication, an amazing time at the shoot, and stunning photos afterward.

What’s next?
I look forward to learning and growing in my skills. The more people I meet, the better I get at what I do.
