Q: What equipment do you shoot with?

A: I'm a canon girl all the way.  My primary body that I shoot with is a Canon 5d mark iii.  I do have a second body that is a Canon 5d mark ii.  My favorite go to lens EVER is my Canon 50mm f1.2L.  I'll shoot most of my portraits with this lens.  Occasionally I bring out my Canon 24-70mm f2.8L and 70-200mm f2.8L lenses (but mostly these suckers are used for wedding ceremonies and receptions).  Then I do have a Canon 100mm f2.8L macro that will rock your ring and dress pictures.  I also have a wide angle, 35mm and 85mm in my bag, but rarely get these out. As for my flash, I will shoot both on camera and off camera flash with my two Canon 600ex-rt speedlites. However, I usually only bring out the flash when shooting inside with very little window light pouring in.

Q: Do you give referral gifts?

A: I am a firm believer in word of mouth marketing.  When I first started photography as a student, then continued into my public accounting job, I literally had no time to market.  I relied solely on word of mouth marketing and it truly has gotten me where I am today.  Because of that, I reward my clients that are spreading the word about me! I give anyone that directly refers a client to me, a gift card for 10% of whatever that client books with me for.  So if that client happens to be a bride, that can be one hefty gift card!

Q: What type of portraits do you shoot?

A: The most common and favorite type of portrait session I shoot is an engagement session. Kind of comes with the territory of being a wedding photographer.  However, just because I'm a wedding photographer, does not mean that I am limited to just doing portraits that come with weddings! I do lots of family portraits (families of all sizes and ages), newborn, maternity, secret proposals, boudoir, birthday parties, lifestyle, corporate headshots, vow renewals, seniors... pretty much you name it, I'll shoot it.  I have yet to find something that I just hate shooting. So if you need a photographer for something a little different, don't be afraid to visit my contact page below!

Q: Who do you use as your second shooter?

A: I have a list of other photographers that I use as my second shooters.  Typically, when I'm about 1-2 months out from your wedding date, I will start reaching out to my go to photographers to see if they're available.  Majority of my go-to second shooters are also primary wedding photographers, so I wait until 1-2 months before your wedding to reach out to make sure that they won't already have their own wedding! I rotate on my list of second shooters to make sure that I get a variety of people throughout the year. However, if you have a preference for one specific second shooter, just let me know and I would be happy to reach and interview them to work with me for your wedding.  Most of the time it works out that we can work perfectly together and you get two photographers you love!

A: This is a "heck yeah!" kind of answer.  I love love love to travel.  Whether this travel is for an elopement, portraits, or wedding, I would be more than willing to come to you! My travel fee for cities that I can drive to (5 hours or less) is $.57/mile + hotel costs.  This rate is the standard rate directed from the government.  If the city is more than 5 hours, I do ask that you fly me and get me 1-2 nights of hotel depending on what event I'm coming for.  If the travel includes multiple days on a cruise ship or out of town, I also ask that I be allotted a meal allowance that would be agreed upon in the contract and can vary from city to city. But if the question is "will she even come all the way out here?" go ahead and bet that I WILL!

I offer an a'la carte menu that starts with 8 hours of coverage, an engagement session, high resolution digital files, print release, and an online viewing gallery. You can then custom build it by adding on a boudoir session, bridal session, and much more from there. Weddings with Amanda May Photos start at $3,000. However, the most popular package is around $4,000 and include an engagement session, a second photographer, high res digital download of all edited images with a print release. I am based out of Knoxville, TN but I love to travel. I shoot a lot of Nashville & Chattanooga weddings but am really open to going anywhere!
