HI THERE, i'M aMANDAOF amANDA & cO.
Just your average small town, middle of no-where girl, that ended up blessed enough to become an award winning photographer.
It's been my honor to cover weddings for almost 10 years, with endless locations across Missouri and Illinois.
I love being able to show my couples what I see when I am looking through the lens...
What You See
What I See

When I am not behind the lens, I am very much a real person.
To answer your first question...Yes, I am a ginger, no I won't steal your soul. If you are still here and you have a sense of humor, we are about to become best friends.
A bit about me... After a decade of my city living, my Dad passed and I moved back home to country to help out. I knew where I needed to be, but I had no idea the love and laughter that awaited me. While I still love the city, coming home again to Midwest sunsets, firefly evenings, and dewy mornings has restored my soul and deepened my love for capturing your favorite moments. Alot of coffee time on my front porch helps with that too.
When I am not covering your big day, I am full time mom to two amazing girls (Ana 10, and Alex 24) and also parenting backwards my sweet and feisty momma. (Linda 81). The absolute love of my life is a farmer and a fireman, and all together we love our hometown and community. We have a farmhouse we are restoring that's full of as many shenanigans as anything on HGTV, a crazy hound dog (Jake), and two very troublesome ducks (Willie and Millie). Life is never dull.
At weddings you will always have two photographers, this way we never miss a moment. You will find myself and the three other amazing photographers here at Amanda & Co. Photo are in the business of storytelling. These women are my dearest friends, and together we have seen it all, and heard it all. We love to laugh and see you having the time of your life. We are there to help plan, answer questions, keep your wedding party smiling, and your day on track. More often than not at the end of the day you will find one of us at a table chatting with your grandparents (one of our favorite things), and listening to tales of how their story began, because your family is our family.
