Amy has had a love for photography for as long as she can remember. Growing up in a military family, she traveled the world-always with a camera in her hand, documenting the beautiful landscape all around her. It was during her Junior year of high school when she joined the yearbook staff that she realized the impact of her photography and its ability to always preserve a moment in time-an athlete on the court, a student in the classroom and friendships among students. It was at this time that she fell in love with photographing people, emotions and feelings. After high school she married her high school sweetheart David in 1995 and started working for a studio learning all she could about the photography industry. Working for the studio gave her the ability to learn and study photography while also giving her the freedom to grow her family. While working for the studio, Amy also worked for local wedding photographers on weekends as a black and white film photographer. It was in 2009 that Amy felt she could open her own wedding photography business while also having the right amount of balance for her family. She started Your Still Life Photography with her husband David who she had trained throughout the years as her second shooter. In 2012 the business had grown to the point that a decision had to be made regarding what what be best for her family-hiring a full time nanny to help with the children or bringing on another photographer and letting David be with the children on weekends. Scott moving back to town was the perfect answer for her! Scotts transition into Your Still Life Photography has been a very smooth transition and helps to bring a whole new element to our weddings! David and Amy will be celebrating 20 years of marriage this year and they have 4 beautiful children and two amazing puppies-all who bring so much joy and light into Amy’s world!
