What is "Real Photography"?

Those candid, relaxed and not-over-edited kind of photos that make you feel something. My name is Amanda and with some trust, laughter and light direction, I capture photos that bring out the best of real-life moments, emotions and connections that are true to your personality. There's something amazing in being unapologetically yourself and it is my job to photograph it. That's real photography



The Amanda Larine Experience



Hi There,

I am a Amanda. I am a creator, learner and lover of all things furry. You'll typically find me with a messy bun, snuggled next to my dog-child, Rollo. All while listening to a 90's jam with a smile across my face as I edit the photos from my latest photo session. The real-er the emotions and connections captured in the photo  - the more I smile. Specializing in weddings and portraiture in central and eastern Iowa, I am truly humbled to photograph those real moments so special and personal in your life.

Why me?

You are not just another session in my day, but my focus of the day. I work with a limited number of clients each year to ensure quality service. I know you have a lot on your plate. I mean sorting through the plethora of photographer options and numerous packages is overwhelming. I believe in transparency and simple packages packed full of the necessities with a la carte options for something a little more including professional printing services.

Finally, with a professional background in counseling, I understand the importance of taking the time to get to know you and your needs so that I photograph what's important to you. To do that, we make sure you're as prepared and comfortable as possible -- from outfit coordination to wedding timeline assistance, I am here to help with it all.  The better you feel - the better, real-er the photos. 

If you're someone who...

  • Is looking for "real photos" with real smiles, laughter and feelings
  • Isn't looking for stiff, over-edited, studio, unrealistic photoshopped photos
  • Appreciates and wants to be apart of and contribute to the creative process
  • Doesn't want to feel rushed during photography sessions
  • Loves the look of photojournalistic photos (aka - "real photography")
