Hi friends! I’m Amanda Lauren Freund.

I’m a natural light photographer + writer + social media professional.

I’m energized by nature + coffee (merlot) + positive vibes.


“Our engagement session with Amanda was perfect.
   She was laid back + made us feel comfortable being ourselves in front of the camera + she knew the perfect moments
 to tell a joke or make us laugh to capture some of our favorite moments in photos.
   We are SO HAPPY we worked with Amanda because we feel like 
our engagement photos truly express how genuinely happy we are together.”

"Amanda was the right pick for me + Collins because she made us feel comfortable.
There was no pressure to pose or do a certain "something." 
She was easy-going, flexible (which with little ones is how you have to roll), and she was FUN!!"

About Amanda


Amanda Lauren Freund

I’m a small town + simple living Minnesota girl who is always planning for my next adventure around the world.

Most days you can find me walking in our woods + working in my home office + sippin on a latte (preferably with frothy whole milk + local raw honey + cinnamon) or $3 Trader Joe’s red blend.

I’m energized by nature + traveling + positive vibes.

BASICALLY…I’m a natural light photographer + wife to a swipe-right on Tinder + nature enthusiast + fur mama + plant lady + homebody traveler and I drink coffee like a Gilmore Girl.


My photography style?

It’s simple + natural. I hate awkward posing. I like to keep it light and focus on capturing casual moments – just as simple + natural as they come.

Why do I love photography?

I like to have fun + work with positive vibe people. I love to capture enjoyable moments for others. My clients aren’t afraid to start a tickle fight or toss their kiddos in the air. Not everyone has to be looking at the camera to have a good shot. My favorite shots are when everyone is engaged with each other.
