  • Very disappointed – I was really looking forward to receiving wedding photography services from Amelia. Sadly, my experience with Amelia Renee Photography was beyond stressful. After booking fall 2019, I hadn’t heard from Amelia until I reached out in April 2020 in regard to her COVID-19 policies as a second wave was being predicted to hit in the fall. Our wedding was booked for late fall 2020 and my fiancé and I were having some serious anxiety about how to proceed. After much discussion between my fiancé and I, we decided to scale back our wedding out of caution and move it 1.75 hours closer to home, needing to change our venue as well as our date. All of which I understand is not Amelia’s fault but each of our other vendors were extremely understanding and flexible given we are in the midst of a worldwide pandemic and at that time, 6 months away from our big day. Amelia was not. Amelia was by far the most stressful part of moving an entire wedding to a different part of t... Read more

  • My now husband and I had to change wedding photographers to someone more local than our og photographer due to COVID. Amelia was very flexible with our quick change. She helped us not only plan our pictures but also our wedding timeline! She has a lot of experience which helped us make small changes to make our wedding events go smoothly. She has a very outgoing, kind, and fun personality. We had a lot of family pictures that we wanted and we were worried that we would not have time. Amelia was very efficient and made sure we got all the photos we wanted. Our family members said she was very enjoyable to work with too. My husband and I are in love with her quality and style of photos! She captured our wedding day perfectly! Highly recommend hiring Amelia!

  • Amelia was an absolute delight to work with! We had to change our plans and cancel our photographer last minute due to COVID-19, and Amelia was willing to be our photographer with just under one month's notice! She was incredibly flexible, and very personable. She met with us over video chat, and helped us to feel a lot more confident in our photography timeline for our special day. She was able to go through our various family photos very quickly, and had great ideas for different poses and places to go! If you're wanting a photographer that will make you feel comfortable, get a bunch of good photos, and have lots of ideas, choose Amelia!

  • Amelia is wonderful! From meeting her for cupcakes before our engagement photos, showing her around our alma matter’s campus for engagement photos, to the wedding day were she helped coordinate everything. She coordinated a second shooter to get every detail of our day, she sang baby shark to the little ones to get them to smile during pictures, and she made sure me and my husband had everything we needed. She is such a kind hearted person and truly made our wedding day one we will remember forever!

  • I had the honor of working with Amelia at a wedding this summer. I was the videographer. Amelia was a pleasure to work with and I was highly impressed with her attention to detail, creativity and how she interacted with everyone during the wedding day. She even found time to edit a few pictures in between the wedding and ceremony and was able to show them during the reception. After the wedding I was able to see the pictures she took and read the blog post she created detailing the wedding day. What amazing pictures and uplifting and positive comments in her blog. I would love to work with her again and I have already recommended her as a photographer to some of my wedding clients.

  • Amelia did a great job of making our special day a breeze with her organization prior to our wedding. She was able to capture beautiful shots throughout the day and the finished product exceeded our expectations. She has a friendly and fun personality that puts you at ease during the whole wedding process.

  • My husband and I have nothing but positive things to say about our experience with Amelia Renee Photography! She was fun, stress free, easy to work with, time flexible and worked with our budget! The quality of our photos were amazing and we got them back from her within a couple days of the wedding. Capturing our big day was at the top of my priority and I would go with Amelia again in a heartbeat!

  • We had the best experience with Amelia for our Engagement Pictures and for our Wedding this fall! I chose Amelia based on reviews on wedding wire and it was not a mistake! She is fun, bubbly, and makes you feel comfortable being yourself! She captured our wedding better than we could have ever imagined possible. Photos were STUNNING and we received them back so so quickly! I feel lucky to have found such a great photographer but even better person! I know we will be calling Amelia for years to come for family and futures baby photos! She was a true joy to work with as well as her assistant Erin! Thank you so much Amelia!

  • Amelia is amazing to work with. She's very artistic and gives great direction. Especially if you're not sure how to pose. She really knows what she's doing and creates gorgeous shots. The photography will definitely not be something to stress about on your big day when she's in charge.

  • Amelia is amazing to work with! She's been an absolute joy to work with, all the way down to the nitty gritty details. She also recommended me to a local florist (who was equally amazing!) And she worked so hard to turn out our pictures quickly - I couldn't believe how quickly we got them back in the middle of a busy wedding season. The pictures themselves were gorgeous and everyone kept commenting how well they turned out! I would recommend her to anybody!

  • My husband and I had such a great experience working with Amelia. She made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera (and that does not come naturally). Our wedding party could not stop talking about how much fun they had taking pictures, even the men. Amelia is professional and organized. She kept both the engagement and wedding shoot moving and made the most of our time. I would highly recommend hiring Amelia for your own wedding. We can't wait to get family photos with her in the future. (Only problem is choosing our favorite photos...) Additionally, Amelia is great when working with Midwest weather. Our engagement shoot was below freezing with a couple inches of snow. Our wedding had high winds, cloudy weather and rain.

  • Amelia was the videographer for my wedding and she was aboslutely fantastic. My husband and I are so thrilled with the piece she created! She caught many little details and highlighted some things the photographers missed. I highly suggest her!
