new address

Since I've switched the name of my business now I've also decided to switch all the addresses. I will now be posting everything over here at www.lovelikethisphotography.blogspot.com.

Please visit there and add it to your RSS so that you don't miss out on anything new! And don't forget to check out the wedding special I just posted. It's an amazing deal so tell your friends and anyone else you know getting married who hasn't booked their photog yet :)



As you may have noticed, I've been making some changes.

I have wanted to change my business name to something other than my name for a long time and finally have found something that I like well enough to do so. It seems appropriate too because I'll be getting married in May and my name will no longer be Amanda Slakes ;)

If you visit lovelikethisphotography.com you will see my {almost} finished website. It's all still a work in progress. I'm just doing what I can as I have the time to do it.

Question for those of you who know more about RSS than I do. I want to change the blogspot address to lovelikethisphotography.blogspot.com. I know how to do that, but the problem is that I'm afraid it will screw up links that people have to the original asp blogspot. Is that going to be a problem?

On to a more exciting topic, the weather is continually changing to the promise of warmer days... which means more sessions!

I will be posting a ridiculously amazing special that I am running for the rest of the 2010 weddings very soon so stay tuned for that.

Holly and Joe's wedding of the season is this Saturday, let's hope and pray for no rain! I can't wait start posting 2010!


Jim, Kayla and company (Rochester family photographer)

I was sorting through my posts tonight and realized I had a couple still in draft form! Not sure why this never actually went up, but here it is now.

These are my cousins :)

cotton candy eyes

Seriously, can.not.handle the eyes





walk together

love forever

Love love LOVE doing these couple shots. Especially during a family shoot :) It proves that there was a beginning to it all and how having a family changes a couple and brings them closer...


Lilly's almost 1!

But not in these pictures... she was only 8 months here. As a photographer, the winter is most decidedly the slowest time of year for me, so I've taken on a couple of kids to look after a few days a week. Lilly is one of them and then her 2 year old brother is the other.

They are a lot of fun to look after and in just about a week I am hoping to take some 1 year cake pictures of Lilly Joy!

pretty baby girl

When I grow up and have kids all my own, there will be no end to picture taking. I simply cannot handle how easy pretty little girls are to photograph! These pictures were taken at the end of November just in time for her Christmas Eve birthday :)

so excited!

The Wedding Affair

The Wedding Affair came to the Memorial Art Gallery this last weekend. One of my June brides invited me to go with her and I am so glad she did! This was an extraordinary event, so many beautiful ideas and great vendors to talk with... and there was so much yummy food, oh my goodness, it was amazing :)

Believe it or not, this was the first bridal show I've ever been to. As a bride or a photographer. I am definitely going to check it out for next year though. This candy bar that you see in the picture above is something I'm thinking about doing at my wedding... like a make your own favor kind of thing, anyone have an opinion about that? I'm not sure if I love the idea or hate it ;)
