We sat down with the upbeat owner of Back Seat Photography, Amanda Moss, to find out what makes her click with her couples …
Amanda Moss has had a camera in her hand for as long as she can remember.
When asked what makes her different as a wedding photographer, she said: “For me, it’s about showing my clients they don’t have to be a certain way or style. I don’t want them to look at my portfolio and think we aren’t a good match because they don’t fit in a certain box. Instead, I want to photograph my couples in their style. I want them to look their best by making their photos personal and unique.”
It’s people who are in love and value photography that flock to Back Seat Photography for their wedding day. “I want to work with couples that are looking for photography because that’s what is important to them, not just because it’s their wedding day and they know they need a photographer,” said Amanda. Back Seat Photography couples love being photographed and share their photos everywhere (including printing them and hanging them on the wall!).
Amanda’s editing style is something that really sets her apart. She edits with a matte edit that creates vibrant and sharp images that are a bit more moody. But personality matches are another factor when hiring Amanda. “Even groom’s say how cool we are,” says Amanda (which we say is a huge vote of confidence!).
The best part of being a wedding photographer?
“This is easy. I work with people on the best day of their life; they are at their absolute happiest and prettiest. They’ve planned for a year or longer and we have the honor of being there to capture and witness all that love.”
The other part Amanda said that she loves is being able to experience all the wedding day emotions for weeks after the wedding (unlike most wedding vendors). As she’s editing, she has the ability to enjoy the moment and “feel all the feels.”
“I look so silly while I’m editing. I’m laughing and tearing up, mimicking the emotion on my screen,” she says.
While every moment on wedding day is special, Amanda says she can hold it together until the father/daughter and mother/son dances when she becomes a “blubbering mess.” Raised by her father, the father/daughter dance reminds her of how close she is to her dad. And the mother/son dance is foreshadowing of what it will be like on her two sons wedding day.
“These dance showcase so many emotions of giving away your child and saying goodbye to your baby,” she says.
This mother of three – Jonica (15), Phillip (12) and Anthony (11) – and two pit bulls (who she calls “pet bulls”), is 100 percent a people lover. “People that love people are my people,” says the Charlotte wedding photographer.
