Amanda was fabulous to work with. We were planning our wedding from out of town and she always found time to meet when we were in Columbus. Amanda worked with us to ensure she understood our style and the type of photography we enjoy. She was also fantastic at helping us stay organized in planning our day and most importantly planning all of the family photos.
During the big day everything went off without a hitch. Amanda kept everyone on time without ever making us feel rushed. During the wedding and reception Amanda captured amazing candid shots. The entire day is so beautifully chronicled. Amanda went above and beyond her job as photographer by video recording our first dance to go along with the other priceless memories she captured.
After the wedding Amanda was incredibly prompt at delivering our stunning pictures. The website for viewing the pictures is great to share with friends and family. We still get comments from friends and family on how great the site is and how wonderful Amanda's pictures are. She also delivers all of the high resolution pictures on a flash drive.
There are many vendors that come together to make a wedding day great, but only the photographer has the task of preserving those memories. Amanda is perfect for the job.

We chose Muschlitz photography to capture our wonder and love for our newborn son shortly after his entrance into the world. As first time parents, there are many times you second guess yourself, but choosing Muschlitz Photography to capture these precious moments was not one of them! Throughout our session, Ben and Amanda put us at ease as they expertly crafted poses, lighting and positioning to bring us photos that we will treasure for a lifetime. The baby phase is flying by, and we are so grateful we have such fleeting moments captured in high quality, vividly-colored pictures. Thank you, Muschlitz Photography for a great experience and beautiful product!

Wow, they look AWESOME!! Love them so much, thank you!! Couldn't be happier with how they turned out:)
Thank you Amanda, you were a great photographer!!

Amanda took her time with us and ensured that our engagement and wedding photos were top notch! Amanda is great if you want someone who will take their time with you and your spouse-to-be, who values your input and is just as willing to provide you with fresh ideas when it comes to photographing your special day!
I highly recommend Muschlitz Photography to capture your engagement and wedding sessions!

Amanda was wonderful! She helped with my wedding much more than she needed to. She had helpful pointers, templates for any documents I might want to create and suggested other vendors. In my personal opinion she was way under priced for the work she did for me. We had an engagement photo session, 6 hours of photo time during the wedding and all of this she put on USB drives for my own use. On top of that we got a Wedding Album to die for and all my friends and family are jealous of. Her turn around time of getting me the album and photos was within weeks of the wedding. She is truly one of the best out there if not THE best.

When we were starting to plan our wedding and we decided to chose a photographer we went with Amanda. During the planning process of our engagement and wedding pictures Amanda made you feel comfortable and she so was easy to work with. We were impressed with how organized she was and helpful in the planning process. Our wedding day was a terrific experience and she made the event very magical. During our wedding Amanda was very personal and she made it feel like it was our special day. Thank you Amanda for all your hardwork and for preserving our special day.

Amanda was a savvy and friendly photographer to work with. After meeting with other photographers for our Columbus, Ohio, wedding, we easily made the decision to use Amanda for our ceremony and party. She was upbeat, inquisitive, and professional. Our meetings were both productive and fun - she has a great sense of humor, as well as a sincere desire to take the best pictures possible. She combined her artistic skills with her people skills to create the most memorable pictures possible. Our relatives and friends all felt comfortable and relaxed as she took pictures during the big day.
Although we live in Brooklyn, Amanda made all the time in the world for us when we had to communicate, and was always prompt with emails, telephone calls, and in-person visits. She was also consistent with organizing all of our information and bills on-time. There were no surprises with Amanda. Everything worked as she said it would, and her reliability became something we could lean on as the stress of planning grew more intense over the months of planning.
She asked questions about us as a couple, and used our answers to find locations and styles that complemented our personal tastes. For example, we had a 'vegetarian wedding,' and Amanda took that information and offered to take our pictures in the beautiful Park of Roses - for a pretty and "green" sort of feel. Those pictures turned out to be some of our favorites.
Amanda was also sure to ask us many questions about the ceremony itself, so that she and her assistant could be ready for each step of the day. Since at first we didn't quite know exactly what to expect or how things would be, Amanda instinctively guided us through a "walk-through" of typical weddings during our first couple meetings. This gave us confidence and gave us some of the insights of a wedding-planner, which we didn't have. This is an example of Amanda going out of her way to make sure we had the best possible experience. I should add that she shared her wisdom and insight without ever being over-bearing or too assertive - she seems by nature to be a humble though insightful person. She is comfortable in her professional capacities and yet confident in her suggestions - these are qualities we didn't always perceive in other potential photographers.
All in all, we're certain that Amanda will work hard to make sure each couple she photographs has a special day. It was really meaningful for us to work with someone we came to consider a friend, and who without a doubt gave us value through her pictures, her service, and her presence. When it was finally time for her to leave at the end of the long day and evening, we were sad to see her go...she fit right in!
Between the two of us, we give her four thumbs up!

My husband and I have been together for almost eight years now and finally got married in September. Eight years seems like a long time, a quarter of my life, it feels like he has always been by my side. I never was the kid who dreamed about her dress or had mock weddings with her childhood friend. Damian and I decided long ago that we wanted a very “us” kind of wedding. Close family and friends, simple meal, and for it to be at a park. Because of my personality, I had my hand in just about every aspect of the wedding, but left a lot of final decisions to my family. The color of napkins to be on the same level of choosing the right college or your next car to many of them.
I think the realization of the effort needed to run your own wedding came full circle when talking with Amanda the first time. In some ways, she acted not only as my photographer but also as a wedding planner. Neither Damian nor I had been to too many weddings, but Amanda never showed the slightest ounce of frustration. She jumped right in helping us make a time frame, gave us suggestions for transitions, and showed us numerous books and photo samples from other weddings to start thinking of which type of photos we may want to have captured. She visited with us numerous times to go over details as well as keeping us up to date with email in between meetings. I’ve never heard of another photographer going out of her way so much as Amanda did to help the couple have a great day.
Our wedding day had perfect weather. The sun was streaming onto my face, Amanda and Bed both were able to catch great photos one after another. We have a matching set of bride and groom facial expressions when seeing each other for the first time. Many photographers seem to have great “stills” (I don’t know the actual term), but photos of the dress, rings, etc, but then lack on the action shots. Amanda is the full package. She even corralled all of the cousins, second cousins, nieces and nephews for whole family photos. This was the first time that my whole family was in one picture together which really means a lot to the whole gang.
She designed a storybook for us and got it to us in lightening fast speed. The only hold up was on my behalf, because I had a small skin imperfection and debated whether even mentioning it or not. I finally did, and pretty much within a day Amanda had corrected all of the photos for my USB drive as well as for the book. The book arrived within a week of ordering (other friends are super jealous – theirs took over 6 weeks to arrive). I thought between all of our families during the holiday season our book might wear out, but nope. It held up like a champ! My grandma seems to keep adding pictures to her list of which ones she wants printed out. It really makes me chuckle to see how fond she is of the book. She also has trouble with her vision, but with the quality of Amanda’s pictures, there is no distortion when blowing them up.
Amanda and Ben really made our wedding experience a great one. Amanda got both of us in touch with the spirit of marriage by showing us how important our day was to her. Thank you both for such a wonderful day, I really wish we could have taken you to Spain on our honeymoon!! Oh, what you could have done with a camera over there with the architecture and beautiful gardens!
Rachel & Damian
Amanda did a fantastic job with the photography at our wedding. The pictures turned out so great, and they are something we will always have to remember that special day. She got many beautiful portraits and nice candid shots too! She was very professional, and was also a great support for me on our wedding day. I would choose her again for any special occasion we have for photography! Thanks again, Amanda!
Carrie & Darrell
Amanda did an amazing job on Jesse's senior pictures. We were down to the wire on location and she didn't even break a sweat. She was very calming and professional. When the pictures were done she gave me a book she'd had made which had an accordian of photos...it was breathtaking and made me cry! Thank you Amanda for such a great experience!
Dina, Jesse's mom, Senior Photos
Amanda & Ben did an AMAZING job capturing our wedding! She went above and beyond from the start, making time to talk to the church coordinator and even going to mass just to get a feel for how our day would run. Many other photographers we met with were either not proffessional or were somewhat snobby about their art. Not Amanda! She is very proffessional but also sweet and easy going! She met with us a number of times to ensure that she understood exactly what I was looking for. She did a great job with both candids and portraits! If you don't believe me just take a look at our pics! She was such a good time on our day and we were glad to have her with us. She even showed us how to cut the cake when our venue coordinator went missing. We received our photos shortly after the wedding and could not be happier! Thank you Amanda!
Nicole & Joe
Thank you so much for making our son Josif's Christening a very memorable day by giving us such a wonderful collection of photos we will cherish forever.

Steve, Miglena & Josif :)
Josif's Baby Christening
What can I say about Amanda... She's great, funny and super sweet and easy to get along with. When we were talking with photographers none of them clicked with us as much as Amanda did/has. Amanda has done awesome work capturing our wedding day with all of our family and friends. Thank you so much... We will most definitely be using Amanda's services again. We loved her to death. Thank you so much...
Shannon & Andy
Amanda is the most amazing photographer!
We were lucky enough to have her immortalize our wedding day, and could not be more thrilled with the results. Every single photo is wonderful. We have gotten so many compliments on them.
Amanda was also able to provide us with a second photographer, Ben, and he was just as amazing. They truly put us at ease. Our first-look session was incredible- we are so thankful that they were able to capture those moments for us. Everything felt so natural. Amanda and Ben were able to guide us but still let us feel like us, and we think the photos prove that. They knew when to step back and let us have our time, and we were able to feel like we were the only two people on the planet for a moment.
They mastered the family photos- and between us, we have 8 siblings, all with significant others, plus a toddler nephew, a 15 day old niece, our parents, and grandparents. They just made everything so incredibly easy, and the bridal party photos and ceremony photos are all spectacular as well. They captured moments at the reception we never want to forget. Despite the crazy moments throughout the day, Amanda and Ben kept everyone calm, and helped us stick with our schedule. They were everywhere, snapping every moment, but had some remarkable method of never once being in the way.
To be honest, you can't go wrong when you hire Muschlitz Photography. Words cannot express how wonderful Amanda is, not just as a professional, but as a friend. Amanda sees you as more than just a client- she sees you for the person you are, and she takes the time to learn as much about you as possible.
Thank you so much, Amanda, for everything you did for us- you made our wedding day the greatest day of our lives!!
Taryn & Matthew
Amanda is an amazing photographer!
Eric and I couldnt be happier with our engagement and wedding photos that Amanda took! Amanda went above and beyond our expectations! Not only did she take beautiful pictures but she also helped us organize some of our plans for the wedding which was more than helpful. She helped put my mind at ease and made sure that our day was nothing but spectacular. Even when things got a little crazy at the wedding, Amanda remained calm and kept things moving.
One thing that I like most about Amanda is that she really made it a point to get to know us and figure out exactly what we wanted. Amanda is a great person and has a good heart, which is such an amazing quality to have when working with people on their special days. She really wants to make sure that everything is about the bride and groom.
Im so happy that we stumbled accross Amanda at Serena and Jayson's wedding. We ended up finding not only a wonderful photographer but a friend. We will definitely be contacting her in the future for photo shoots!
You're the best Amanda!!
Kaela & Eric
Thank you for the beautiful pictures you took of our family! We can't tell you how special they are to us. We will treasure Ben's senior pictures. We are glad you could get him to relax and take pictures that really showed his personality. Our family photos are a joy to look at. We appreciate how patient you were taking all the different poses we wanted. You are a pleasure to work with! Thank you again for sharing your talents with our family!
Chris & Rob
My wife and I are very happy to have had Amanda photograph our wedding this fall. She was very professional and thorough in advance with discussing our hopes for the day, and attentive to all details that we discussed. On our day she worked seamlessly with us, our bridal party (including our dog!), and our guests. We are pleased with her work, and highly recommend her for your consideration.
David & Melanie
Amanda, thank you so much again with your assistance on our wedding day, and for making sure our wedding day stayed special for us. Thank you again. :-)
Leetina & David
Amanda was amazing from day one. From the first meeting until she handed over the pictures, her communication with us was impeccable. No question went unanswered, and her responses were always prompt. She not only took amazing photographs of our wedding in June 2011, but she helped us with her vast knowledge of weddings. She gave us great ideas and tools to use during the planning stage, tools that we could not have gotten by without!
What we most appreciated from Amanda was her ability to remain professional yet keep everyone around her at ease. Everyone knew she was there, but she didn't hinder anything or anyone. Her artistic eye captured moments we would not have otherwise seen in the flurry of events on our big day. Our memories may fade as we get older, but her pictures will be a constant reminder of what a joyous day we had together and the lifetime we plan to build.
Amanda's character shines bright in everything she does and we could never thank her enough times to express our true gratitude. She somehow managed to get fantastic pictures of our 2-year-old son who refused to stand still or sit down for anything. She is not only an amazing photographer, but she's an amazing person. She has a beautiful heart that somehow comes through in each photo and makes it glow.
Thanks to Amanda, we will never forget the day that our lives became one.
Serena & Jayson
Amanda Muschlitz, you are nothing shy of top notch!
Amanda photographed our September 2010 wedding and exceeded our expectations in every possible way. She was the complete professional but still had everyone feeling super comfortable. She was with us for practically every waking moment and left no stone unturned.
Looking at our wedding photos six, seven, even eight months later, we are able to sort through the chaos and hysteria of the day and remember all the love and joy we felt in every moment. The best part is being able to appreciate all the beautiful things that we didn't even know were happening around us. It's like having a bird's eye view of our own fairytale day.
A thousand words could not fully express our gratitude to Amanda, her powerful lens, her undeniable talent, and her unwavering commitment to us and our special occasion. You have given us and our family the priceless gift of always being able to relive what was truly a perfect day.
A lifetime of love and gratitude,
Sarah & Bill
