Hi there. I'm Amberly.
I'm so excited for you to get to know more about me, and I would love to get to know more about you soon personally.
Why Did I Start Photography?
I started photography seriously in high school. I was very fortunate to have some connections with other photographers who were professionals in the field. I started working as an assistant and second shooter to weddings, and quickly fell in love with photography once I realized how important and precious capturing timeless moments is. Once I went off to college, I decided to start my own company and started pursuing my own weddings and couples. There were a few couples in the beginning who solidified my thoughts and made me realize “this is why I do what I do, and I love doing it”. During that beginning/growing stage of my business, I can remember crying tears of joy after a couple booked me from Florida and drove all the way for a session. I was so full of joy and content that my heart was just so full. I honestly want to credit that couple for making me realize I truly was worthy and I was on the right path in life as far as my “career”. I hate to label photography as a
“career” because it still is very much my passion. I always tell people that my favorite part of my job is meeting so many new people from different places and different walks in life.
What can I offer that is different from other photographers?
My style of photography and edits has been described as “earthy, romantic, warm, moody, etc”. Style is an important aspect to consider when you are booking your photographer. More importantly than style to me is, PERSONALITY! I believe that my photo sessions and wedding days should be a happy experience to look back on. I am your third wheel for most of the day, so I like to make sure I bring positive energy to you and everyone around you. Yes, I have a job to do, but I am also there with you to document important life moments. Think of having another best friend with you!
How do I tell your story?
I like to bring a candid, authentic style to my photos to make it feel as if you are there in the experience rather than direct “posing” that looks stiff and uncomfortable. It is a special moment in your life, and you should feel relaxed enough to soak in every moment and detail of the day. When you look back on your wedding photos, you can reflect on those special moments and good vibes. My photos will help showcase your beautiful love story.
Why did you choose the name "Into The Embers"?
When I started my re-branding, I wanted a unique name that would allow me to stand out creatively. I wanted a name that sounded adventurous and outgoing. "Ember" has always been such an intriguing word word to me. Since my name is Amberly, I wanted my name to be similar and relate to my photography in some kind of way - without using my first and last name as my brand. "Ember" stuck to me. An ember is a small glow, yet can turn into a whole wildfire. I like to think of this as myself. A small spark that can turn my dream into a wild flame.
I have a very adventurous soul, and love going into the wilderness, hence the beginning of my name. I'm always wanting to go on an adventure and try new things.
