Hi there and Welcome
My name is Amanda and I am so glad you’re here! I am a senior photographer located in Raleigh North Carolina. I know there is a lot to consider when choosing a photographer for your senior pictures, so make sure to browse through the pages to learn more about AEP. I hope to celebrate you with an unforgettable photoshoot experience!
At a very young age, I developed a passion for the arts that was fueled by support from my parents, friends and teachers. I realized that art was a gift from God, a creative outlet, a chance for self-expression and my opportunity to leave a lasting impression on others. Throughout my adolescent life, art was more than a passion, more than a drive... it was my life.
Like many, I felt the pressure to explore a more stable career path as a young adult and decided to pursue a degree in Business Finance. While art was no longer my main focus, I still stayed in touch with my inner artist by taking electives whenever I could fit them into my normal course load. After graduation I found myself working in public accounting where I met my now-husband Joe. Life is unpredictable... and beautiful that way.
After several more years in a corporate finance setting, I realized I wasn’t doing what I was passionate about. The artist in me was being suppressed and yearned to be back in the spotlight. After careful consideration, I decided to pursue a career in photography. I didn’t plan this route, but I love how life unfolds. It’s trusting in God’s plan and taking a leap of faith that takes us to better places through His divine plan.
My name is Amanda. I am a God-loving woman, a wife, a mama to two cats, coffee lover, blogger, runner, and--of course--a photographer. It would be my honor to work with you.

I loved working with Amanda! She made me feel comfortable and is SO friendly. The pictures turned out better than I could’ve imagined. Not only is she an amazing photographer but she really made me feel like I had known her for years. Love her
Amanda is absolutely fantastic! She has worked with my entire family, both individually and as a group. All of the sessions have produced some of the most beautiful pictures of my family, that I have ever seen! For someone who typically doesn't enjoy getting their picture taken (myself), she made me feel beyond comfortable and I really enjoyed myself in both my individual and group sessions!! Very very highly recommend!
I picked up Lexie's Senior portrait package today. I am more than pleased with our selection and purchase. I am so grateful that Lexie Knight found AmandaEnglish's Senior model program! Everything about our experience was personally tailored for us, professional and the moments Amanda captured are priceless. You might notice that I keep saying "us"... at times it hit me, well done senior portraits were more for me than Lexie. Senior year captured in photos I will treasure.
Had my senior pictures with Amanda and she was great! Super flexible to accommodate outfits and different locations. I would 100% recommend her to anyone looking for amazing pictures!!!
I wouldn't have wanted anyone else to take my senior pictures!! Amanda really prioritizes how you want your pictures to turn out and puts an extensive amount of time planning to make sure everything is ready to go the day of (locations, overall feel of the shoot, etc). Unlike some of my friends' experiences, nothing about our shoot felt overly static or posed; everything felt totally natural and organic which definitely reflected well in the pictures! Lastly, the final pictures came out absolutely beautiful and I couldn't have been happier with the entire process! Amanda really is the best and I couldn't have had a better experience. I'm sure I'll find an excuse to work with her again in the future!
