Tampa Wedding Photographer Amber McWhorter Photography

Amber McWhorter Photography

“My business is here to document the moments of love and laughter while creating memories that last forever. I enjoy the raw moments of couples and base my business around capturing these moments.”

What We Love About Amber McWhorter Photography




We Love Weddings Because…

Each wedding is the unique collaboration of the vision of a couple, coming together to create their perfect day. I love photographing these special moments and details which is how I found my niche with wedding photography. I am passionate about being the one to capture every minute of excitement, love, passion and happiness on the day that you will remember forever.

Our Wedding Style

My photography style is a work style that is unique and that I can call mine. I would describe my photography as a photo-journalistic style. I am there to tell your story and to document your day which is accentuated by taking in all of the surrounding areas and creatively using them to enhance my photos. I love sunshine and use natural lighting as often as I can to produce photos that have a more genuine feel.

I enjoy having a mix of posed photos but really diving into the candid style of photography as well. My editing is a timeless feel of editing true to color with a little bit of warmth to the images as well.

Our Personality

I would like to consider myself fun and easy going, yet professional. I know how to joke around and have fun with my couples but I also know when to step up and get things done in a prompt manner.

What Inspired Us to Start Our Business

I was inspired to start my photography business when I fell in love with photography as an emotive art. I had taken photography courses and found myself so enlivened with the images captured. I wanted to provide this feeling to others. I wanted couples to be able to remember and feel every emotion when looking back at their gallery of images from their wedding day.

What Makes Our Business Stand Out

I would say that my business stands out from other photographers because I not only am focused on my couples looking perfect, but I am also looking at the surrounding environments using the areas with the best backdrops and natural lighting. I do a little bit of editing but stay close to true to colors that provide timeless photos for any occasion.

I am there to photograph the events and big moments but also have a keen eye for details and love capturing those moments as well.

Meet Amber McWhorter

My name is Amber McWhorter, I am a wife to my husband,  Austin, a mama to my little girl, Amelia, and a “dog mom” to a husky-mutt Kaia. I have lived in the Tampa Bay area my entire life, currently residing in the Clearwater area.

I love going on adventures, traveling, trying new food and coffee shops, visiting local breweries and wineries, hitting up concerts, experiencing new things, and reading a good mystery book.

I am an ocean lover but thoroughly enjoy the mountains almost just as much. My husband and I live a very water-oriented life as he is a fishing charter captain. We both enjoy a beautiful day on the water, fishing, scuba diving, or just cruising around to watch the sunset.

I enjoy living in the moment but am excited about all things to come in the future.

One thing most couples would be surprised to know is:

One thing most couples would be surprised to know about me is that while I am super comfortable being behind the camera, when I am in front of the camera, I have no clue what to do! So many couples think that because I am good at giving prompts, posing, and capturing candid moments that when I am in front of the camera, I am a natural but I totally am not.

Non-wedding Passions:

A non-wedding-related passion is traveling. In my spare time away from my business, I love exploring and enjoying the outdoors. The world offers so much beauty and it is a passion of mine to see it, photograph it, and stop and just take it all in.

  • Photography was the most important thing to me from the start. We wanted someone with beach ceremony expertise, a good price package, and who could capture our personalities.

    Amber of Amber McWhorter Photography has insane talent and a very natural presence. Our engagement session with her was so much fun! I knew she would capture our personalities on the wedding day even through all the pre-wedding jitters. Ultimately, Amber’s incredible social media presence made me confident in her skills as a photographer.

  • We wanted somebody who made us feel comfortable and was local to our community. We also looked for somebody who had comfort in photographing weddings in the evening, as our wedding did not begin until 7:30 p.m., and it was scheduled to be outdoors.

    We chose Amber McWhorter Photography after talking about what we were looking for. Amber was extremely professional and knowledgeable and just easy to talk to! She offered suggestions on locations and provided us with examples of her previous work when we would ask specific questions about photo locations. Amber also came to us highly referred by numerous people in our community, and we truly believe hiring her as our photographer was one of the best decisions.

  • I looked for someone that I trusted. Amber, the owner of Amber McWhorter Photography, is not only extremely talented, but she’s kind, professional and so fun! When my husband and I were just engaged, we went to Tampa, Florida for a vacation. I had an idea to do our engagement photos while we were there and I came across Amber’s Instagram. Her photos were stunning, but her captions told a story that made her photos even more beautiful. We finally met in person to have our engagement photos taken and, at that moment, we knew we wanted her as our wedding photographer too. She made us feel comfortable and captured our relationship perfectly.
