about amanda Joy Photography

Hi! I'm Amanda

I create awesome photos of even better people in stunning Switzerland. I'm a tea loving, cookie baking, photo making Mama of two who specialises in capturing images for people who have joy in their hearts and memory making on their mind!

Most days you will find me taking care of my family and my clients. Acts of service is my love language.

I was born and raised in the wilds of New Zealand before my American husband swept me off me feet and whisked me away to far of lands, eventually settling here in Switzerland.

My zone of genius is bringing the fun, removing the stress and guiding you throughout your session so we can create the photos you've been dreaming of!
