“Photography sessions are not just about the pictures, but also about the experience. Amanda’s work speaks for itself with the incredible quality, and her sessions are a blast; I’m always looking forward to having another one. She is organized, professional, and takes the time to get to know her clients and their horses, showcasing each one’s unique personalities. She is definitely the best equine photographer in northwest Indiana!”

“AMAZING is the first word that comes to mind when I think about Amanda Tonagel Photography. My family has been fortunate enough to be able to use Amanda for the past 7 years. She is not only a fantastic newborn, family photographer, she is now showing incredible talent including equines into the picture (in our case: cats, horses, & chickens). Her unique outlook, hard work, dedication, wonderful personality all shine in the photos that she takes with our family. BEST of all she is fantastic to work with, VERY professional yet super easy to talk to and work with. Trust me on this because I am a repeat customer!! I highly recommend her for all of your photography needs especially if you are using your equine friends!! I wouldn't trust my families memories with anyone else!!!!”

“We have been coming to Amanda for 7 years now with our first session being our maternity session with our son to our most recent session being a family session and to capture photos of our daughter who turned 1. One of the things that keeps us coming back is her ability to capture our personalities in her photos; and how comfortable she makes you feel during a session. For me photos are more than just capturing a pretty picture, it is about the emotion that she captures in the photos, and how you can feel that emotion by looking at her pictures. She takes the time during her session and doesn’t make it feel rushed. She makes sure that you are comfortable during the session and will adjust the setting if it isn’t working for your cranky child or husband. There have been sessions when one of the kids is not super happy and you feel like there is no possible way that you are going to get any pictures with smiles, and then you look at your gallery and there is that tiny grin you hoped for that she worked so hard to get. Amanda was referred to me by a friend and I am thankful that she was, she has become a friend to our family, and we will continue to refer her to families that we know.”

“Amanda understands kids and has a great way of making them comfortable. She gives us a great variety of candid and posed shots. Amanda is easy to communicate with and responds to texts and questions. Having four kids herself Amanda understands that things don’t always go Pinterest Perfect yet she still gets great shots!”

“Amanda has been documenting the progress of my family for years; starting with our wedding ceremony, then continuing on to maternity sessions, newborn photos, first birthday parties, and our annual group photo. Amanda has been there with us for the whole ride! We've chosen Amanda to continue to document our lives because she's excellent. The pictures are amazing; she's able to lure a smile from a crabby toddler, shush and soothe a fussy newborn, and snag a sunset like nobody's business. Our walls are covered with Amanda's work... it's too hard to choose just one to frame!”

“I love everything about the photos that you do! You are truly so patient and take the time to capture everything we wanted in photos. The prep is sooooo helpful. Your advice for color choices in outfits was spot on! Loved your props and setting choices! Our photos were beautiful!”
