Amanda Lynn Cole started photographing weddings in 2017 and has never looked back! 35 years old, born and raised in the Rockford, IL area, she has always had an eye for creativity! She loves cats, coffee, true crime, and of course, cool photography! If you want a photographer that's laid back, funny, and artistic, look no further.

"OBSESSED WITH THE PHOTOS! You did such a great job. i can't believe how great they turned out. Thank you so much! We love them! So many good ones it's hard to choose!" - Melissa + Dan | October 2021

Can you help with a timeline?

A second photographer is wonderful to have to get another angle on your moments as they happen, offering extra insurance that not a single thing is missed. They also come in handy for getting the groomsmen getting ready while the lead photographer is busy with the bride! 

What's the point of a second photographer?

Fabulous questions! I usually recommend two outfits for engagement photoshoots and as far as what to wear, I actually have a style guide I send out to clients to help them with choosing the best look for their shoot! If you feel you need more personalized help, I am more than willing to be your personal stylist, just ask! I want you to feel great and comfortable but also look great on camera!

Can we bring a change of clothes for our engagement photos? And what should we wear?

I will travel up to 2 hours away from Rockford, IL for Diamond or Emerald packages included in the package price. Elopements or hourly will incur travel charges!

Do you have a travel fee?

Great question! Engagement sessions usually take about two weeks to get back to you during peak season while weddings generally take anywhere from 6-9 weeks during peak season! I always deliver at least one photo as a sneak peak within 24-48 hours of a session though to tide you over while you wait! We take our time here at DIAMOND to provide the very best final product!

How long does it take to get the photos back after an engagement session? After a wedding?
