Stay a while and say hello!

Hi, I'm Amanda!

Austin, Texas Sunset Chapel Wedding

Oct 22, 2020

I will probably never forget the moment I got the text “you’re hired!” from my friend Marla. She so kindly recommended me to her sister in law to photograph their upcoming wedding. Stephanie saw that I love me some Taylor Swift and *boom* she was willing to take a chance on Amanda Carter Photography! Did I mention this was my first wedding…? Like… Ever?!

Thank. You. Taylor. Swift.

You guys. I hit the jackpot. Stephanie and Don were the most joyful, fun, and in love couple I have come across in a long time. Being a blended family myself, I thought it was only fitting that my first wedding was to capture Stephanie and her fun-loving daughter Ellie as they married Don and his two beautiful daughters Addison & Jenson.

From matching robes and bracelets to a special trip to the nail salon for pedicures, Stephanie so carefully planned out the day to make sure all the girls felt loved and important. Come ceremony time, Addison and Jenson were in charge of the rings while sweet Ellie got to walk her mom down the aisle. The intimate sunset ceremony at Chapel Dulcinea in Austin Texas was the perfect way to blend two families and become one. Some of my favorite moments of the day were spent watching and photographing the girls interact, already counting one another as sisters.

Stephanie– you were absolutely radiant. No one could have wiped the smile off your face even if they tried. I absolutely loved the way you reflected each girls’ personality and style through their dresses and even the way you so carefully did their hair.

Don– The way you look at Stephanie absolutely melts my heart. The joy between the two of you is tangible. I find myself smiling each and every time I scroll through your wedding photos.

And last but certainly not least….

Marla– the real MVP and creator of the floral arrangements, you are a boss. I dreamed about Stephanie’s wedding bouquet for a solid week.

Congratulations Whittle Family!
