Andrea, the owner, and lead photographer & videographer, is obsessed with love stories. "When you open up your life, and tell me that you trust me & my team to capture your most important memories, it’s so humbling and personal to me. It's sappy to say, but I always tear up at least once at weddings. There's nothing greater than watching this chapter of love play out right before your eyes, and forever captured for generations to see.

"Amative" means to be prone to love. And there's nothing we like more than telling a good love story! The most important thing to us on your wedding day is to create meaningful, emotional, and powerful images that truly capture your life journey and where your love has taken you so far. We are a team of creatives driven to curate a truly personal and luxury experience. Andrea, the team, & your vision work together to achieve your dreams.

Giving back

We believe in paying it forward. That's why 10% of everything we make goes back to local charities and non-profits that benefit those impacted by poverty, sex-trafficking, domestic violence, hunger, and other humanitarian efforts. Thank you for your support and allowing us to keep helping!

Your wedding day may just be a day, but we are with you for life. Our photos are on your walls, and we never delete digitals... just in case.

Andrea did an incredible job taking my engagement and wedding photos! She is very dedicated to her clients and willing to do what it takes to get the perfect shot. I highly recommend her for any type of photography shoot and for her graphic design skills. She personally made our Save the Date cards and wedding invitations and they came out better than we could have hoped for! Andrea is a one of a kind photographer which makes her perfect to photograph your special day!
On the eve of our first anniversary, coming back to watch this video brought me to tears. This was the best investment in our wedding day and you did such an amazing job capturing all the details and things that stood out to Michael and I. I am flooded with emotion and joy every time I come back to watch our video.
Andrea is, hands down, the most amazing photographer out there! She took our engagement and wedding photos. After seeing our engagement pictures, I knew our wedding pictures were going to be absolutely amazing and it was SO nice to not have to worry about that on top of everything else going on during wedding planning. Andrea made us feel comfortable and acted as if she had known us forever. She directs you and knows exactly what poses will make for the best pictures. I more than highly recommend Andrea and I plan on using her in the future for any other occasions.
Can't wait to work with her again!!! I couldn't believe how comfortable she was to be around. I imagined it would be kind of awkward posing in front of a stranger but it wasn't like that at all. We all had so much fun during our photo shoot that we ended up laughing almost the entire time. Super fun to be around and super professional work. I couldn't have asked for more in a photographer!
Andrea is amazingly creative and brings a strong educational background to her art. Her ability to capture the magic of momentous occasions is uncanny and the finished product provides a lifelong treasure to be visited again and again. Her photographic talent and eye for capturing the aesthetic and spiritual aspects of special events can only be described as inspired.
