About me

The Photographer

Hey there, I’m Amanda the photographer/owner of Wild Crane. I have always had a passion for photography. Yep, that was me… the one pointing a camera in everyone’s face. At parties, on trips or just to experiment with perception, contrast, and texture. In my twenties, I decided to take it to the next level. Almost 2 decades of experience ago, I began my career by learning to see the world through the lens of fine art. I remember the sense of adventure, standing in the dark, inhaling the chemicals while eagerly waiting for the image, that took a great deal of time and practice, to come to life. Then, voilà the patience paid off and the picture, which was so carefully captured, was staring right back at me. How magical that experience was! Once digital became available capturing and postproduction opened a world of endless creativity and enjoyment. Thanks for visiting my website and let me know when you are ready to collaborate.

Cheers to keeping the art of photography alive!

We just left a holiday session with Amanda for our seven year old. We got a custom package, she had a beautiful Christmas scene set up for her shoot, and took great candids and serious photos of our little boy. Thank you Amanda, we will definitely be back!



Amanda is a heck of a photographer, kind, and has a lovely eye for movement and detail. She was candid, cordial, and wonderful. We were so lucky to find her to do a holiday shoot for my 7 year old. Our shoot was affordable, customized to our needs, and we left happy, with beautiful images to share with our family.



Amanda Hovey was the photographer of my dreams for my wedding. The photos she took were so incredibly beautiful. There was not one bad photo in the bunch. She was very calming to me as a bride and helped the whole day go better. And she was great to work with before and after the wedding as well. She has taken photos for my family on other occasions and I highly recommend working with her.



Amanda is meticulous, patient, fun and a gifted photographer. I love working with her!
