Hi there! We are April & Amanda and have been photographing weddings since 2007.  To say that we love our job is an understatement!  It is an honor to be a part of so many love stories, capturing precious moments.  Please leave us a note.  We would love to meet you!

About Us

     I am a psychologist by education and think it is so funny how far I deviated from my degree to become a photographer.  I can assure you, it happen quite by accident! And yet I am so thankful for my education because it plays such a strong part in the way I photograph people.  
     In 2007, I photographed my first real wedding and knew instantly that this was my passion.  I love photographing people experiencing real, heart-felt moments with the people they love.  I am hands on with posing and strive to make people feel comfortable in front of the camera.  My biggest goal is to make people look great, feel loved, and receive the best photos of themselves they have ever seen!

Meet April

     In 2007, a friend asked me to photographer her wedding.  This one was my first after graduating from photography school!  And it was a defining moment.  I knew instantly that this is what I was called to do. Finally, I had connected my love for photography with something concrete.  I wanted to be a wedding photographer!
     I became an associate photographer for April Smith Photography in 2008.  Through working with April, I learned how to to invite couples into moments of joy, laughter, sweet kisses, and tender embraces while I photographed them.  

Meet Amanda

Professional, kind, fun, talented are just a few words that describe this dynamic duo! April and Amanda have been friends forever before they decided to become professional photographers and that speaks to how well they know each other. It's just so awesome how these two work together. My wedding was in Pasadena, CA and I think every single photo is gorgeous. I really appreciate that they understand the importance of family and took the time to make sure we got beautiful family portraits. I would recommend April Smith Photography in a heartbeat. We love them!

Love Notes from our Couples

We love Amanda! I absolutely loved my wedding photos and think Amanda did such a great job. Not only was she so sweet and friendly, the photos were gorgeous and truly captured the happiest day of our lives. The engagement session came out beautifully as well and I catch myself just staring at the photos all the time! I have friends (who spent almost double for their photographer) tell me that they adore our photos and wish they could do it all over again. I can't wait for another anniversary so Amanda can capture another session with my husband and I!

Love Notes from our Couples

April and Amanda were such a pleasure to work!  April was as intent on getting to know us during the engagement photos, then, when the wedding rolled around, it was like working with an old friend. She made us comfortable and was very organized.  We truly felt like April and Amanda was the best money we spent on our wedding. Not only were they amazing to work with on the day of, but our photos came out just as wonderful. Hiring April Smith Photography was one of the best decisions we made during the planning of our wedding and one we would make over and over again!

April Smith is Fabulous!  We got married in Carlsbad, Ca and our photos came out absolutely spectacular! She is super sweet and very professional. She captured every moment perfectly, gave us the best direction to make sure we got the shots we wanted, and everyone loved her! She has an eye for the perfect photo and we are so happy with our wedding photos! She was available for questions throughout the entire wedding planning process and was so easy to work with on our big day. We love April and would absolutely recommend her to every bride and groom out there!

Friendly, fun, and beautiful results!   April did an amazing job at our wedding! My husband and I were planning our event from out of state and April was available and always ready to help. She was timely and the day of the wedding went so smoothly. She handled the crazy members of our wedding party in a way that assured me she was getting the awesome shots but didn't take away any of the fun. During dinner, she didn't hesitate to quickly pull us away and get an incredible sunset shot. Overall, I could not have been happier and would definitely recommend her to anyone!
