meet us

Amanda started Dash in 2010, and Katie joined in 2015.   Amanda is the driver and perfectionist while Katie is the dreamer and visionary.  When you throw in our Studio Manager Michele, interns, and in-house second shooter, Garrett, there are lots of laughs, Instagram stalking, re-dos, google docs, pep talks, and coffee breaks.  Amanda takes both weddings and seniors, while Katie loves love, and has a hand in all things Dash Weddings.  As a growing team, we strive to ensure grace, laughter, and professionalism remain at the heart of Dash.

Where can we find you when you’re not shooting?  Snuggling my pup, rocking out to some live music (my husband drums for a living–it’s basically awesome), traveling, updating Instagram, laughing, or eating…or looking up ridiculous videos on Youtube.

What is the longest word you know? Supercalafragilisticexpialadocious… is that actually a word?

Who would you be friends with if you could?  Ellen or Rob Dyrdek

If you could rule the world for one day, what is something you would ban? Selfies

Which planet in the solar system would you visit? Uranus

….is that inappropriate?

Who would play you in a film?  Zooey Deschanel as Jess from New Girl as me.
What’s your favorite thing to shoot?  Moments. I love the moments that make up whatever I’m shooting.  With my seniors, I love when their friends or family make them laugh and their face scrunches, or when they see the back of the camera and their confidence immediately soars.  I love the little moments that might be lost in the wedding day–dad crying, mom admiring from afar, a groom’s nervousness, or the couple lost in each other in a crowd on the dance floor.  I also find life shooting for the nonprofits and orgs I’m involved with.  I can’t give millions of dollars (but let’s be honest, we all can give tens of dollars), but I can give the talent I’ve been given.  It’s my way of giving back.  You can check out the three organizations I am actively involved with: Bert’s Big Adventure, 3Seams, and ACE.
