Quad Cities Fine Art Photographer - Specializing in Newborn, Family, and Wedding Photography

WEDDING INFO

Amanda Oakes Photography specializes in wedding photography in the Quad Cities and surrounding areas. Stunning portraits of our wedding day and those important events in our life are not just portraits, but rather an heirloom. These are the photographs that will be passed down for generations to come. They are beautiful and sentimental and display life’s details at that very moment in time.

Portraits are not only posed, but they are candid moments as well. Perhaps a first kiss between a bride and groom. A father walking his daughter down the aisle. A mother buttoning those last details on her daughter's dress. Details you’ve spent years dreaming of for your magical day.

I’m a storyteller, and these are the images I create. For me, photography is an unconditional labor of love. It holds a very special place in my heart. It’s why I love to capture the unguarded, fleeting moments that hold such special meaning for the couples I photograph. Timeless photos that you will be proud to display in your home as everyday, happy reminders of moments you will cherish forever. Let’s capture your cherished moments together.

You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally

BETTER THAN YOUR DREAMS
