~ self portrait by Amber ~
Hello! My name is Amber and I am the face behind Captured in Amber Photography. I was born and raised in Calgary, Alberta. Photography has always been a passion of mine. I’ve always had a camera in hand running around documenting everyone’s lives. I hoard albums of images that I have taken throughout my life. They are the first thing I would grab in a fire without a doubt. Expressing myself creatively whether that be through writing, acting or taking pictures is an outlet that I need in my life to be fully happy. Once I started playing around with my camera and editing images in Photoshop, I was hooked. Images invoke so much feeling in me and I love capturing the world through my eyes.
In 2012, I started taking photography classes at SAIT in order to help me grow as an artist, which only fired my desire to start my own photography business. Since starting my business I have had the pleasure of capturing families lives since 2014. In 2018, I made the jump to weddings and haven’t looked back. Families are the heart of my business and I will always make sure that I set time aside to capture those moments. My love for capturing weddings is deep. I love the pace of the day and who doesn’t love to watch two people commit their lives to one another.
