Meet Us

I am a hybrid photographer. I photograph with film and digital. I love film because it has a beautiful process. You think and take in the moment before you click the shutter. Film for me has always captured a feel of emotion and motion in my subjects. I choose film as an art and as a tool for your beautiful and memorable proposal.

My name is Amandarose Grace Szezorak. I was sixteen when I photographed my first wedding, and I fell in love capturing someone's love story! I had found my purpose with my talent. Since then, I have photographed well over 300 couples. I went to Marywood University in Scranton, Pennsylvania (yes, Scranton, you office fans!) and graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Fine Art Film in 2010. 

I believe in ALL love stories, and with love, you can conquer all. I am a photographer that was diagnosed with eye cancer at age twenty-six, and I continue to do what I love. Love encouraged me to get through that time in my life, and I am so grateful and honored to continue to document love stories of so many couples. Every love story should be told. 

One of the most important investments you can make for your surprise proposal is deciding on a photographer who has years of experience, and has captured countless proposals. I feel honored that you have considered me to photograph this exciting moment in your lives. 

My goal is to provide my couples with a proposal experience that is stress-free, fun, and in the moment. I know the best spots to propose, from the sandy beaches to the Big Sur cliffs, and I will help you every step of the way. From providing directions, to setting up a champagne picnic, I'll help you nail your proposal!

Kind words

"It is hard to put into words how incredibly wonderful our experience was working with Amandrose. 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."

Molly & JJ

"AMANDA SPOKE WITH ME ON THE PHONE MULTIPLE TIMES AND SENT ME AN ENTIRE PLAN OF HOW WE COULD MAKE THIS WORK. HER PLAN WAS VERY DETAILED INCLUDING A MAP WITH WHERE I SHOULD BE, WHERE MY GIRLFRIEND SHOULD BE, AND WHERE SHE WOULD BE. MY NOW FIANCÉ WAS COMPLETELY SURPRISED AND WAS IN LOVE WITH ALL OF THE PHOTOS."

Collin & Taylor

"THE PROPOSAL WENT PERFECTLY AND THE PHOTOS LOOK AMAZING! AMANDAROSE MADE OUR PROPOSAL SO SPECIAL, OUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS ARE STILL TALKING ABOUT IT, AND I KNOW WE WILL REMEMBER IT FOR MANY YEARS TO COME!"

AARON & JACLYN

"HER ATTENTION TO DETAIL IS IMPECCABLE AND SHE WAS 3 STEPS AHEAD OF US WHEN IT CAME TO MAKING SURE SHE CAPTURED OUR DAY FULLY."

Bo & Katie
