N. Carolina & Afar
Im SO glad you are here, on my little corner of the internet. I truly am so honored that you want to learn a little more about who I am and the experience we offer. This page is full of the things I cherish most, the people who keep me going, and why you will always find me with a camera in my hand. Cant wait to hear from you!
I first fell in love with photography at 17 years old when my dad passed away, and I suddenly began to treasure photos. A few years later, I found myself studying (I’m using the term “studying” lightly) an anatomy book with a newborn baby in my arms thinking there was no way I could follow through with my plans to go to nursing school when all I could think about was the next time I could pick up a camera. I told my husband I wanted a shot at starting my own photography business—and the rest is wild, beautiful history.
When I’m shooting a first dance, a walk down the aisle, or a pregnant belly, I don’t just look at what I’m doing as photography. I see it as playing a small role in serving a legacy. Far beyond what’s in front of the lens, I see your future grandchild flipping through a photo album on the coffee table, chubby toddler fingers pointing at a picture on a wall and asking “Who’s that?”, weathered hands touching age-old photographs and reliving the moment the wedding band they wear today was first placed on their ring finger. Nothing fills my heart up like playing a small part in your beginnings.
In my book, great people and incredible experiences beat fancy things and shiny packaging every single time. Give me a low-key beach, a Nicolas Sparks novel, and my four babies by my side—and I’m in heaven. I strongly believe in following your passion over pursuing a paycheck—and I know it’s my deep appreciation for the meaningful things in life that makes me a truly effective wedding and family photographer.
Wedding & Portrait Photographer for the wildly in love couples and happy families across NC and beyond! Inspired by love, travel, fashion, and legacy.
Your girl usually has a starbucks in her hand, I spend my days off on ball fields with my babies, or on a date night with my husband. I love to travel... give me experiences over things any day of the week.
We live in a small town not far from the coast in Southeast NC. We have four children, who love sports, spontaneous trips to Disney, and playing with our Goldendoodle, River in the back yard.
in Love with life on both sides of the lens

i’ll take the moments money can’t buy any day of the week.
around here, it
takes a village
My second-shooter and sweet husband, Chase, first walked into my life when I moved from Illinois to North Carolina at the ripe age of 19. It was a surprise I never saw coming (the best kind!), and we’ve since added four little ones to our family.
Our crew of six—and the legacy we want to build (one chock-full of slow, Southern Sundays spent on the porch)—are the driving force behind Amber Rhodes Photography. As a Midwesterner and a Southern gentleman, we are hopeless romantics, baseball-obsessed, and absolutely in love with capturing life’s beautiful chaos and causes for celebration.

the love notes we can’t stop Reading
When I first got engaged, I knew I wanted Amber Rhodes Photography as my wedding photographer . Through the whole experience, and on my wedding day, they made sure everything ran smoothly and they made me feel relaxed throughout the entire process. Their work speaks for itself, but I have to add that they were so much fun to work with. They do not miss a moment and my final gallery captured every moment and emotion throughout the day. They gave us the best memories to look back on and we are so grateful for them. I cannot recommend them enough!
