2014 DREAMING TREE PHOTOGRAPHY BY AMANDA ZIKA
Hello. I'm Amanda.
Welcome to my little corner of the internet. I am so glad you found my website and decided to take a look around. As you can see, I have a passion for telling a story and capturing beautiful memories through my camera. I have loved photography since I was a five-year-old holding a little plastic Fisher Price camera in my hands. That love grew as I studied photography in high school and college. I can't count how many hours I would spend in a darkroom during the week!
I love a good love story and I believe everyone has one. Each couple I photograph has a unique story all their own. I love that. I love meeting family and friends on the day of the wedding and then keeping in touch with them afterwards. I do have to admit one of my greatest joys is photographing one of my couple's first baby. Watching a family grow and go from journey-to-journey is amazing. I truly love my job.
In my personal life I have been immensely blessed. I am married to an amazing man and we have been blessed with three beautiful children. I wake up each day thanking God for all of my blessings. I am a hopeless romantic and I love things that are old and tell a story. A lot of my friends and family call me an old soul. Once your my friend, you are my friend for life. I love people and socializing. Maybe that is why I married someone completely opposite of that. They do say opposites attract!
Fresh flowers, decorating, antiquing, chocolate, coffee, Bible studies, dinner with friends, cardigans, old cars, classic movies, shooting on film MoBot, eating outside , holding hands with my husband and watching the clouds with my kids fill my heart with joy.
