Amber McWhorter Photography

“My business is all about documenting the moments of love + laughter while creating memories that last forever. I enjoy the raw moments of couples and base my business around capturing these moments.”

Woman-Owned
LGBTQIA-Friendly


Our Wedding Style Is:

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.

Our Personality Is:

I would like to consider myself fun, loving, laid back yet professional. I know how to joke and have fun with my couples but I also know when to be professional and get work done.


What Inspired Us to Start Our Business is:

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 from their wedding day when looking back at the pictures documenting their day.


We Love Being a Part of the Wedding Industry Because:

I love documenting the moments and emotions of life which is how I found my niche with wedding photography. I am passionate about being the one to capture every minute of love, laughter, excitement, and happiness on the day that you will remember forever.


What Makes Our Business Stand Out From Other Vendors Is:

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.


One Thing Most Couples Would Be Surprised to Know About Us 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!

One of Our Non-Wedding Passions Is:

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.

Meet Amber McWhorter

My name is Amber McWhorter, I am a wife to my husband,  Austin, and am a “dog mom” to two husky-mutts, Niko and 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.

We looked for someone who seemed to enjoy taking pictures, specifically at weddings, and someone who catches the important moments. We looked at editing style, angles, and backgrounds. 

We chose Amber McWhorter Photography because of the work that we had seen on social media and on her website. We liked Amber's editing style and the beautiful backgrounds she had her couples in front of. Amber was able to work quickly in a tight time frame to get all the photos on our list as well as wrangle our groomsmen, which was not an easy task.

Timeless Dusty Blue and White Safety Harbor Wedding | Harborside Chapel

When looking for a wedding photographer we really wanted someone who not only took not only beautiful traditional photos but also someone that was willing to step out of the box and have some creativity show. I really wanted timeless photos with a beautiful very natural edit as well.

Amber McWhorter Photography is absolutely incredible! She is one of the most talented photographers I've met, and her editing is extraordinary. We got exactly what we were looking for when we choose Amber to be our photographer. Ben and I did our engagement photo shoot with Amber, and she gave us simple but very needed guidance that made our pictures look so natural and fun. On our wedding day, Amber not only did an amazing job with our photos but she made everybody feel so comfortable. Our wedding actually ended up running very behind, and we had to make some adjustments but Amber made sure that the photos we wanted wouldn't be compromised. Amber blew me away and, I am forever thankful for the beautiful moments she captured so well. I truly can't even put into words how amazing her photography skills are; you'll have to check them out yourself!
