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 anything (or anyone) I could get my hands on. 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 your image, that took a great many hours, to come to life. Then, voilà the patience paid off and the picture you carefully captured was staring right back at you. How magical that experience was! Once digital became available capturing and postproduction opened a world of endless creativity and enjoyment. Cheers to keeping the art of photography alive!

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.
