Amelia Renee


HELLO!

My name is Amelia Renee. I'm a portrait and wedding photographer based near Des Moines, Iowa —but I love to travel! Photography and videography allow me to combine my love of people, adventure, and telling stories into a passion…and I would love to tell your story with my camera. 

 

Things you should know about me: I'm obsessed with kettle cooked sea salt & vinegar chips, glitter, pomegranates, music I can dance to, roadtrips, Jesus, fall-scented candles, and iced chai lattes. Colorado is probably my favorite state (we went skiing there every winter when I was growing up) but I hate the cold. (In fact, I photographed my first Colorado weddings in 2017!) Supporting other small businesses gets me fired up. I've watched Parks & Rec at least 2.5 times. And I've recently discovered that I enjoy Kombucha!

 

  Genuine moments make my heart beat—photojournalism has impacted the way I approach
photography. I desire to celebrate who you are, and capture that for the world to see. There is beauty in everything. Let's discover that beauty together!

Philosophy


Philosophy


 Amelia Renee Photography, Des Moines wedding photographer

 


You deserve nothing less than quality photos to treasure for years to come. That is my aim for every session I photograph; wedding, family, senior portraits, and more. In 40 years, these photos will spark memories of "the good old days!" I want your photos to help you feel again the butterflies from your wedding day. Or how exciting life was your senior year of high school! Or the messy (and hilarious) years of raising small children on not enough sleep and too much coffee.

Photography is worthwhile investment! As such, I see my job as wedding and portrait photographer as a "joyous honor."

That's why, to me, these aren't just Facebook profile pics. Each photo is a memory. A memory that will fill an album to show your grandkids someday! Your wedding day is so much more… it is that start of a life-long marriage to your best friend. The parent of your kids, and the one you'll laugh and cry with more than anyone! Those moments are worth remembering, and photos will help you remember stories, feelings, and moments. Forever!

Good photography is worth the investment and care. I want to help with that! SO, let's go! I'm ready to jump in headfirst to having adventures and making new memories with you!

 This wedding day in Colorado was incredible! Mountain and Lakeside weddings are the best, in my book. I can't wait to photograph my 3rd Colorado wedding this summer!

 After planning an outdoor wedding ceremony and picking an incredible photographer, I'll be looking for an amazing bouquet. Like Maddy! (And sunflowers don't hurt, either!)
