Hi! I’m Amanda, the face of Manda Renee Photography. To understand why I’m a St Louis wedding photographer, first you have to know about my family. I married my best friend in 2012, and he is the most kind-hearted, loyal, and passionate man I know. I’m also proud to call myself the mom of four of the coolest boys ever, two playful pups, and a sassy black cat. Because of all of them, I’m surrounded by deep, unfailing love, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I believe in taking that kind of love, capturing it, and preserving it as art through my photographs. Being behind the lens and editing photographs fills my heart in a way I can’t even explain, and I’m grateful to be able to fulfill my calling with some of the best, most loving couples around!
Wedding coverage starts at 3400 and includes: 9 hours of consecutive coverage, (2) Professional photographers, digital images delivered in an online gallery, limited print release, and a few extra surprises from me.
Portrait sessions start at 550 and include: up to 2 hour session, digital images delivered via online gallery, limited print release, and the option to purchase products.
T H E P R O C E S S | One way I ensure that my brides and grooms enjoy the BEST experience possible is through forming a relationship with my couples. I try my best to make sure that all of my couples are the PERFECT fit before officially booking. A bride and groom should connect with their photographer, trust their photographer and be EXCITED about the whole process with them! After booking, I love getting to know my clients through an ENGAGEMENT SESSION that helps them warm up to the camera so that they are ready to rock and roll on the wedding day! By the time the wedding day arrives, my clients feel more like friends and that creates a safe and relaxed environment for photography! Now that you know a little bit about my approach to the wedding day, you can continue reading for more detailed information about THE WEDDING EXPERIENCE!
Engagement sessions are so very important for you to be able to really get comfortable with me and for me to be able to show you how I work.
I am more than willing to travel for engagement sessions! I actually love it when my couples ask me to photograph them in a location that means something special to them! I book engagement sessions at least two months in advance.

We are not the most photogenic and we don't love our pictures being taken but we had so much fun & our pictures turned out amazing! At our outdoor wedding it started out at 100 degrees and then it poured. Through it all Amanda gave us AMAZING photos and came up with unique and fun ideas for our group. Now, some of my favorite pictures are of all of us in the rain! I felt like she really got to know us and because of that our style and personalities were well reflected in our photos, both engagement and wedding. I honestly could not have been happier with our pictures or our choice of photographer!
