Ten years ago I founded AGS Photo Art, a photography studio that specializes in weddings, elopements, and proposals in Monterey, Carmel, Big Sur and beyond. Discover why over 300 couples have trusted me to capture their special day.
I can’t live without photography. As a dorky little eighth grader, I would steal my parent’s film camera and tinker with it for hours. I couldn’t put the camera down. Being able to capture every moment I thought was special, was priceless. I quickly wanted to share this amazing discovery with all my other loved ones; I wanted to capture the things they thought were precious.
I believe my purpose is capturing special moments and documenting countless love stories. I do it for the feels, laughter, tears, first dances, and vow exchanges. As a Carmel wedding photographer, I’d be honored to capture your love story.

At AGS, the client experience doesn’t stop after the shoot is done. AGS offers professional art prints, beautiful frames, and luxury handmade albums to enjoy.
It is hard to put into words how incredibly wonderful our experience was working with Amandarose. First and foremost, she is one of the warmest, most genuine people we've had the pleasure of knowing. She's more than a photographer – she has become a friend. She’s a great communicator, always goes the extra mile for you, and genuinely cares about the end result, but also your entire experience working with her from start to finish.
Her talent is boundless; she’s able to find the perfect moments, angles and shots that wow’ed absolutely everyone who has seen our photos.
Her charm, graciousness, and experience made us feel incredibly comfortable during all photo sessions, despite the fact that neither of us had spent much time in front of a camera. She captured every moment, every perspective; using light, shadows and other elements to breathe life into every picture.
if we had to go back and do it all again, we would book her again in an instant! Amandarose exceeded our expectations and really was the best investments we made for our wedding. The day went by so fast, but she captured the moments to make it last forever.
