“Working on the Artisan Events team is the perfect fit for me...

I love working with such a talented, professional team—and AE clients are the best! Always so kind and just good people which makes my job even more enjoyable than it already is everyday.  I always aim to bring a balance of inspiring candids, stunning details, thoughtful storytelling and do my best to live up to my reputation as the go-to big group portrait photographer at the studio!"

client love notes

“My husband and I can’t say enough wonderful things about Artisan Events. When we began the wedding planning

process, we knew that photography was an area that we really wanted to invest in—I mean, it’s the most important day (and one of the most expensive!) of one’s life, so wouldn’t you want everything captured on camera?! Tina and team were very professional and so easy to get along with—which is SO important with someone who is with you the entire day of your wedding."

Mother of bride love notes

“The AE team did a wonderful job of capturing every moment of our daughter's wedding from start to finish.…

We were impressed with their work during our selection process and are so very happy that we selected them. Amanda was extremely communicative in planning for the Big Day and was so prompt in producing amazing photos of a day that we will never forget. Amanda and her team are true professionals and we highly recommend them!"

CLIENT love notes

“Our photographer John was amazing to work with and clearly a professional when it comes to wedding photos! 

We also did engagement photos with him and it was a great experience. My (now) husband and I had never taken professional photos, and were slightly awkward. John put us at ease and coached us through the whole thing. The photos came out beautiful and we have never looked better! Thank you so much Artisan Events for these memories from our engagement and wedding."

— Harry,  Chicago, IL


CLIENT love notes

“We used Artisan Events for our sangeet and wedding, and it's hard to describe how happy we are that we found them. 

The photography was so beautifully done, capturing us (and our family & friends) in ways that were simultaneously totally natural but also capturing the special nature of the day and ceremony. We can't stop looking at them. Same goes for the highlight video, which we've been re-watching more or less constantly. And, almost as important as the end product, everyone we worked with from Artisan was so skillful at making what could be a bit of an overwhelming day feel calm and joyous. My wife and I never needed to worry about anything, and we actually just had so much fun doing the photographs."

— Stephaniea,  London, U.K.


CLIENT love notes

“Amanda is a warm, gracious, and fun person with whom to be; she is absolutely the right person to include in one’s wedding day...

Her artistic talent lies both in taking the photo initially but then helpful to display it uniquely and beautifully in an album or on a wall. As the years have progressed, so too have our orders of Amanda’s photos in our albums. She has managed to capture the spirit of our daughters so beautifully through her pictures that we simply cannot resist having the photos displayed in albums or in frames. Our gallery wall of images by Amanda may now rival in numbers the display of work in Amanda’s work studio!"
