Amanda Alessi

Based in Perth, Western Australia



I enjoy designing invitations, riding my bike and exploring pretty woodlands. I love eating blueberries and drinking tea. Admiring antiques, historical houses and pretty flowers makes me happy. I have an obsession with squirrels...and rabbits, and also cats.

It is pretty simple really. Witnessing and documenting beautiful love stories makes me gosh darn happy.  I would say I’m a very nostalgic person and this is at the core of why I love photographing weddings. I get a warm fuzzy feeling knowing that the smiles and beauty of people can be fresh, alive, and meaningful to others for years to come. These love stories will be passed on for generations and that is why being a wedding photographer is a wonderful privilege.

Your wedding doesn’t have to be some cheesy cookie cutter day. This is a celebration of love.  Love that makes your heart leap into your throat and brings tears to your eyes. You are marrying your best friend surrounded by your nearest & dearest and that is pretty freakin’ amazing.

Travel is a big part of my life so I will happily pack my bags and come along for an adventure. Photography has taken me to far away lands such as Provence, France and the English Lake District, as well as closer to home, Melbourne. My dream wedding destination is Iceland so if you know of anyone heading to that tiny corner of the globe let me know.

Contacting Amanda

I understand that choosing a wedding photographer can seem like a large task – especially when there are so many talented creatives out there. That’s why it is important to see if we are the right fit. I meet all my couples in person or via a Skype date before anything is official. In fact, I love meeting my couples multiple times before the big day if I can. The more comfortable we are around each other, the more natural you will feel in front of the camera.

The way I like to think of it is….wouldn’t it be nice to have another friend on the day sharing your pre walk-down-the-aisle excitement, pointing out you have green stuff stuck in your teeth and laughing at the best man’s speech? When I turn up on the morning of your wedding I’m a friendly face rather than a stranger!

I’m a lover of weddings remember? I take this gig pretty seriously!

If you think we’d hit it off, fill in the contact form and I will get back to you as soon as possible with information about my prices, availability and how I can best capture your day.

Hopefully we can meet up for drinks and chats!
