Amanda Ruth


If I could choose three words to describe my art, they would be "vibrant," "outdoorsy," and "fantastical." Growing up as an artist, I knew I wanted to dedicate my future career to something that brought me and others genuine joy. I love to create, imagine, adventure, stylize, and give those I work with something to look forward to. Being a photographer is the most perfect way to combine my passion for adventuring, art, and connecting with others.. I consider myself a host to my clients, hoping to help them take a simple moment to slow down and explore this earth by way of photography. Ultimately, my aim is to expose the vibrancy and energy of life even in all its imperfection, and bottle that feeling into images that will last a lifetime. With this all being said, my name is Amanda, and I am a 22 year old lifestyle and portrait photographer who would be honored and ecstatic to work with you!


As of 2023, I have obtained my B.F.A. in Photography at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, meaning you can trust that I both understand and am fully dedicated to this craft. I have been working alongside clients in portrait and lifestyle photography since I was only fifteen years old, and have also created galleries for institutions and small businesses. A couple of my most notable achievements in this realm include Bayside Church, Out of the Blue Swimwear, and Starlite Village. I am truly an adventurer, artist, people-person, and a storyteller at heart, and I'd love to capture your memorable moments.
