a story behind the lens



I’m Amanda Marie Lackey, born in Texas; living in Texas, with world travels living inside my heart. I believe every day should begin with coffee, prayer and a whole lot of gratitude. If it happens to rain, well then I believe you’re in for a real treat. I currently live in Ft. Worth, TX with my husband Tyler, our fur baby cat Olivia, and our beautiful baby girl, Gwen! We enjoy nights in cooking our favorite meals, weekends at the family ranch, spending time with friends and family and dreaming up our next travel adventure! 

In 2011, I began working for Anthropologie part time and before I knew it, friends and colleagues in the creative industry were asking me to style outfits for almost any occasion. That eventually turned into styling personal closets, styled shoots, and in 2012 Amanda Marie Styling was born. Your style should be two things: effortless and a reflection of your personality. My personal style rule you ask? One accent piece. Something bright just does a soul right.

Amanda Marie Portraits was established in 2008, specializing in weddings and brand photography. I am passionate about serving my clients through the art of photos, with medium format and 35mm film cameras being my favorite forms of medium. Light, color and the timelessness of film will never go out of style. I am inspired by genuine moments, quality stories and producing one of kind artwork together.

so now that you know a little about me...
