About Amanda Kellogg Photography

Hi - my name is Amanda. I am a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, and a friend. I am also a photographer. I would love to say that I grew up loving photography, that I have done it my whole life, and I have had a single minded mission to be a professional photographer since I was six. But the reality is that it started much smaller than that. It started as a spark in 2007, when my son was born. It was a desire to capture the smile of my baby boy that grew into a passion for not only capturing my own memories, but for helping others capture special moments in their lives, too.

I really enjoy documenting those moments in places that are special to my subjects… in their home, a favorite park, the family farm, and anywhere else that brings a sense of home and feeling of enjoyment. One of the hard things about studio time at chain places is that you have just a short period of time to sit and smile and move to the next outfit or generic background. I take extra time with each of my clients to coax out more natural expressions and get to the real person. I want to capture YOU and your silly or crazy personalities - how you really are so you and your family will have cherished photographs to look back on for years to come.

Sean & Jill Married {Part 2} | Southeastern Minnesota Wedding Photographer





After formal pictures, it was time for the ceremony to start. It was a lovely ceremony following by a balloon release and bubbles as the couple exited the church to climb into this sweet car. After the church, the couple made the trek to Rose Creek to wind down a bit before the reception. While in Rose Creek, I managed to get the couple to pose for “just one more”.



Emily and I headed back to the Legion first and then the couple arrived. The meal was served and some very funny toasts were made. They cut the cake and shared some laughs over that.



Then it was time to hit the dance floor.

First came the first dance.


Then it was time to PARTAY!!



I asked the couple for “one more picture that you want everyone to remember your day/night by” and this is what they gave me.



Sean and Jill,

Thank you again for trusting me on such an important day. Enjoy your trip up north. 🙂
