“Amanda did an excellent job with our engagement photo shoot yesterday. She was high energy and I highly recommend Balboa park for your location (she is very creative and has a whole loop set out of spots). She was early and while the group on says 1 hour, she got so many shots we were very impressed. Ladies I recommend not wearing heels so you can get more photos but be prepared to work for it :-). Very knowledgable and helped us feel okay about awkwardly posing and kissing on demand (which is more difficult than you think). Thanks Amanda!”
