The year was 2009.
My business teacher turned to me and said, "What kind of business do you want to run, Amanda? What are you wanting to learn in my class?"
I was in my first semester of high school. The clock ticked closer and closer to the end of the school day, and I wanted nothing more than to get out of the stuffy portable at Annandale High and go home.
14-year-old me shrugged and said, "I don't know. I just love entrepreneurship. I love the idea of being my own boss."
I had no idea that those words would carry me through the process of becoming a professional wedding photographer.
10 years and an honours diploma in Creative Photography later, I'm so proud to be a wedding photographer!

Hot sand, gleaming sun, and cool waves make me happy. Tan lines are a part of who I am.
