Today we would like to highlight Amanda Fogarty, photographer with A. Fogarty Photography. She picked up photography in high school as a hobby, after some time family and friends started to enquire about her pricing. She started as a part time photography but after many years of practice she decided to start her own business, and recently took on photography full time.
“I decided to get into the business because I love, love - and capturing the genuine connections between people.”
One of her favorite parts of her job is working with the clients as well as other vendors. Being able to connect with everyone that is apart of someone’s special day and tell a story of that day with her photographs.
Amanda is a very genuine person and always strives to give her clients the best experience. It’s that experience that she delivers that she believes set her apart from others in her profession.
“I truly believe in not only being a photographer but also a friend. From start to follow up, I’m a resource for my client’s and I try to elevate their entire wedding planning and day of experience by my thoughtful approach.”
She loves to bring the excitement of the day out though her photos of it, always striving to capture the love the couple has for one another as they move though their special day. Making their experience with her truly unique and lasting.
Outside of working as a photographer, you could probably find Amanda at the beach. She also loves to travel and spend time with her Fiancé and Fur babies as well. She also has a second business as well, her gifting company, Posh + Walker. If she was not working full time as a photographer, she would most likely be working to expand that business. She is living her dream every day by being able to have a career that she loves.
“There is nothing that compares to the moment when I took my business full-time. The realization that my passion was my full-time career was unexplainable. Every day after, I wake up so grateful to be able to live my dream life and career.”
One last piece of advice that she has for those looking to start their own business;
“You’re never done learning. Both in your business and on your craft. Continue to challenge yourself and learn from others who inspire you.”
