Couples / Engagements


      My fiancé and I did a mini-engagement session with our dog, Gucci, and Amanda was amazing! Her response time with all of my questions and concerns was easily within an hour or two each time, which is way faster than I’d expect from any business, let alone an independent photographer! It was a very last minute decision to have a mini-session, and I work 7 days a week, but Amanda was quick to accommodate us and coordinate with us and our timeframe. She took our input into consideration for every single photo.

      We drove from Lansing just so Amanda could take our pictures, and the trip was well worth it!

      I’ve lost 170 pounds, and as a result I have a lot of excess skin, which makes it very difficult for me to feel comfortable. Amanda took all of my concerns and fears about being photographed into consideration when posing us, and was very, very patient with my self-consciousness. She truly listens to what her clients want and are looking for; I’d sent her a few photo ideas the day before our shoot and she captured the exact pose that I wanted with my fiancé, me, and Gucci.

      She was incredibly patient with my squirmy Chihuahua, and got some AMAZING shots. She has a toddler and 2 smaller dogs, so she was incredibly patient and knew all sorts of tricks to get Gucci to pay attention. I was with a group of friends when she sent the “sneak peak” photos that same night, and I was beaming when I saw how they’d turned out. I have never felt more beautiful (and my dog has never looked cuter).

      I love the photos so much that since receiving them I have basically made anyone who will look at them look at them, and they have LOVED every single image.

      Pricing was absolutely reasonable and I can’t recommend Life on Purpose Photography highly enough!


      Amanda is an amazing photographer! She shot our engagement pictures and took pictures at our engagement party. She truly has a natural talent for photography and it shows in her work. The pictures turned out beautiful and it didn't break the bank either! If you're looking for someone to take professional pictures I highly suggest Amanda and Life On Purpose Photography. You won't be disappointed!
