My name's Amira

(pronounced uh-my-ruh)

I got into photography almost five years ago, and this journey has given me more happiness and love than I ever could've imagined. Photographs make me nostalgic and hopeful and help me appreciate  life's simple pleasures. When I'm not spending my time staring at photos and working, I like to relax. I am a homebody, but the ocean, the mountains, and the hour before sunset excite me and I love to witness them. I laugh a loootttt (and harder than everyone else). I love music. I'm convinced my photos wouldn't exist if it weren't for the thousands of songs I've loved. This is always going to be one of my favorites. I like to write. I'm 23, queer, and I graduated from Howard University's school of business. Currently living in a wonderful place that feels like home, Oakland, California :)

I want to laugh with  you + get to know you when I work with you. I believe photography should be an experience that you're excited about. Photos have the ability to bring to life the people we love the most, and the people we hope will be around forever. I'll stay with you from the beginning of your wedding day, when everyone's getting dressed, until the end. I'll hang out with you and your person somewhere outdoors or in the intimacy of your home, photographing your interaction and the small things they do that make you love them so much.  I love this job. People make my work what it is and I can't thank them enough, so I share my heart with them.

Feel free to send me an email telling me about yourself and what you're looking for. It would be great to know you.

Kind words
