I'm Aundrea, a documentary, lifestyle and candid photographer specializing in weddings, birth and portraiture. I live just outside of West Glacier Montana. I started my business in 2012 so that makes this year 6. I am a full time mom to four awesome kids and married in Montana on 4/06 to my best friend. My mind is open to all kinds of life and stories so please feel confident and secure sharing your experiences and ideas with me.
If I could describe my style of photography in three words I would say spiritual, exciting and authentic. The best stories are stories documented. I love expressing how people view the world and how they feel. I love photographing real, raw life using documentary teqniques. I photograph everything from landscape, birth ,wedding and so much more! I feel in my heart I see things from a unique, peaceful, fresh and exciting perspective that I have to share with the world. I have a drive and passion for photography within me and I'm drawn to know this is exactly what I am here to do.
I believe art can change the world; awakening feelings, spirituality and passion. Photography is a good way to remind you of all those small moments in your distant memory that you sometimes, if not all the time, forget or become unfamiliar. That's what I want to document for you. I want to tell your story in a way that brings emotions, thoughts and memories to the surface. From photographing the first breath, the first kiss , the goodbyes, the "this is it". Can you imagine getting all of that into one photograph; taste, smell, sound, touch? Now imagine it's your own! Documenting once in a lifetime scenes and being able to relive them every time you look at them. Life is all about its journeys and as you get older you realize you want to feel it one more time. You want to go through life all over again just to relive that moment. With the right documentary you can! I want to capture your story in a way that nobody else will. Working with me is more than just hiring a photographer; its an experience! Your life is beautiful and worth remembering. Let me help you express that, let me help you see, let me help you relive, let me help you remember the moments worth cherishing.
WHY HIRE ME? Friends and customers who have hired me describe me as exciting, gentle, giving, passionate and most of all someone who genuinely cares about who you are, what you desire and what you have to say. Most of the time I feel socially aqward so that opens everyone up right away. I'm always the ice breaker. I have a sense of humor and will go lengths to make you laugh. I'm adventurous and outgoing but I can also be very calm and quiet. Those things work great when I'm shooting a wedding or if I'm patiently waiting at a birth.
THINGS I LIKE? Authentic moments, watching a baby and a family be born, astronomy, national parks, exploring my senses, DIY projects and remodeling and culture. I also really enjoy depth, conversation and meeting new people. I enjoy watching someone sharing their feelings with me, making people laugh and of course a bottle of wine.
WHAT'S IN MY BAG? Back up camera, another back up camera and probably another back up camera. I have back up batteries, back up memory cards. I am always prepared.
