Hi! I’m Amber. I’m a thirty-something year old mother, wife, and filmmaker. I’ve been making “films” since my Mother received a video camcorder for Christmas when I was 9 years old. As a kid who moved almost every 2 years to a new state, I’ve always been drawn to this documentary art form of capturing the here and now so you could freeze memories forever. I started a film club in high school which led to a scholarship at the University of Utah. This unique scholarship provided an opportunity to live with fellow artists in an old home at the U where I earned my Bachelors of Art in Filmmaking and a minor in Design. Everyone in my film classes knew I’d show up to class with a film that was inspired by happiness. I’d make films about kids at the bus stop, dance students dancing to class, documentaries on love – some odd stuff compared to the rest of the content presented in class. I decided to pursue weddings after watching one of my best friends’ wedding film. I knew that this fit that style I had cultivated for so many years. It involved working with people on one of the happiest days of their lives, and creating a film that inspired more happiness. This all snowballed into where I am today, filming these beautiful weddings for over 1o years. Shortly after meeting my husband, he bought me my first Canon camera. (Sorry Canon, I’m a Sony girl now.) I have three kids, 8, 7, and 4 years old. I have 2 sweet puppy dogs, and 14 chickens. I enjoy an ice cold Dr Pepper and buttery popcorn while playing card games with friends. I snowboard and wakeboard, and love to hike and explore this gorgeous place where I live. In my teens I traveled the world with my family, and while I still get the itch to go explore more – I appreciate where I am now. You can find magic where you are, and that comes back to my philosophy behind film. Magic exists in the every day, and definitely on those special once in a life time days. I absolutely love to find that magic, film it, and document it forever for you to enjoy. I hope this gave you a glimpse of who I am, and I’m eager to get to know you!
