My "Ideal" Clients

Those who find value in the ordinary. They are the ones who live extraordinary lives daily. They are the ones who are grateful for the smallest details, and seek to observe what other's ignore. They find beauty outside of the superfluous and superficial. Who believe luxury is not monetary, it is owning a life you love and are loved in. They fearlessly go wherever their stories move them. Sometimes they are all of these things and haven't seen the back of the camera yet!

Hi, I am Amber Reid.


Here's what you really need to know:

I love people.

You are important, and so is your story.

I believe your story is so important that it fuels a desire to not just care about a product or end result. I am passionate about you enjoying the moments which lead to your events, ceremonies, photoshoots, and more. Your vision coming to life is important! This means freely enjoying every detail you have dreamed up, curated, and are now seeing coming to life. My goal is to support and offer an ease as we navigate the logistics. Don't have a vision? Trust me, everyone has one (even if they can't see it yet,) and I'm here to inspire and prompt from the beauty existing inside of your story.

In the end, I don't exist to 'photoshop' perfection. Yes, I edit but you're going to get the real-ness (I hope that makes sense). This applies for your events and shoots. I'm not into posey-rose colored moments, I'm about facilitating the settings you are excited to revisit in your memories.

I have been been in the wedding/events industry for well over 10 years, so I have a lot of unique experience.

This is my full-time job along with co-owning a local studio in my hometown (The Local Archive).

Quality time, baking, performing in musicals/plays, reading a good book, fresh flowers, the smell of boutique hotels, and fine chocolates.

My Typical Day:

If you walked into my home, you would probably hear one of my children requesting a song on Alexa. You would probably smell, breakfast/lunch/dinner being prepared. You would probably see, all of us dancing around barefoot in our kitchen. And what we'd hope you'd feel most is loved.

My photographs share pieces of those memories you simply can't capture with words. The memory taking you back to smells at the lake after the 4th of July, the bitter cold that froze you to the bone when you went ice skating in Central Park, or that awesome anxious exhilarating thrill that made you question if you had the time of your life on that first rollercoaster. I'm here to help you reminisce all of those memories, the life you're living now, and the stories you've yet to tell.

So what is the first chapter you would like to start with?
