About & Editorial Work
Hi all! My name is Amanda. I am a professional event planner, published photographer and recipe developer. In the last few years I've taken to freelancing in all those areas as well as social media and digital marketing management.
I started event planning in 2013, but really got into the "blog" world, starting this website when I moved to St. Louis in 2015 as a way to meet new people and build a community. I decided to build space to share my work with events, styling, photography, social media, and digital marketing. I'm now back in Sacramento, CA and am excited to work with new brands here.
Although my background is in events, I started my blog in 2015 working on photography, styling, recipe development, workshops, and social media. I love working with great companies and restaurants. If you would like to work on a recipe or project together, please feel free to email me at wilensamanda(at)gmail(dot)com.

I am a contributor to LaurenConrad.com, contributor and influencer for LC Lauren Conrad, and contribute photos and recipes to The Little Market. Some of my features and partners across different pages can be found below!
