Hi! My name is Amanda Ruth Speakman, and I'm an eighteen year old portrait photographer currently majoring in art and design at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. Though I reside in the city of San Luis Obispo a lot of the time, I am based both in SLO and the foothills of Northern, California.
I've always been drawn to taking photographs. I started out capturing mostly landscape when I was really young, but began to pick up portrait photography throughout my years of high school. I can now proudly say I have been capturing heartwarming and authentic moments of wonderful high school seniors, the most loving couples, and the sweetest families for the last three years- just to provide a few examples!
Though I find the artistry aspect of photography super fun, and it is actually what got me photographing in the first place, I have grown to love making connections with those I photograph and snapping their most authentic moments. With that, I hope to be able to work with you soon!
