Orchard Cove Photography is headed by photographer Amanda Herzberger: “I’ve always loved pictures, and photography. It began as a creative outlet for me, but it soon blossomed into a business.”
Mentored and trained by seasoned professionals, Amanda worked as a photographer’s assistant and as a second photographer at weddings to learn the business and gain hands-on experience. She then began taking on her own clients, bringing her unique style and carefully nurtured skill to each experience.

Amanda’s belief in developing and celebrating relationships is at the heart of Orchard Cove Photography’s mission: “I value my relationships above all, and the wonderful people in my life help me realize the power of everyday moments. It’s my goal to capture that for my clients’ family and friends.
I see photos as moments and reminders of the past. Each time I see a photo, the past comes flooding back.
The photo above captures me and my Brother running up the hill at my Grandma’s house when I was two years old. When my Grandma passed away, I found the photo framed in her bathroom. It now hangs in my bedroom.
When I see it, I remember playing with her dogs, exploring her movie collection, leafing through her scrapbooks, eating her famous tuna salad, feeding the birds, jumping on her bed, and trying on her frosted pink lipstick in the privacy of her bathroom. That one image calls back countless memories that I treasure to this day.
Orchard Cove Photography is a good fit for casual, intimate weddings. I like to focus on the FUN of the event by documenting your most joyful and memorable moments. I specialize in, and enjoy photographing, outdoor and at-home weddings.
My approach is very moment-driven, capturing the moments that make your wedding day a true celebration of relationships – the moments that might otherwise go unnoticed, but those that prompt the sweetest memories later on.
Orchard Cove Photography accepts a limited number of weddings which means personalized service and speedy turnaround of wedding images that reflect your personality and the spirit of the day. On the wedding day I pride myself in being relaxed, organized, and friendly to everyone I’m interacting with. My favorite part is catching those tiny moments that make wedding memories truly special, often using a zoom lens so the style is authentic and unintrusive.
For each wedding booked, Amanda will donate $100 (300 meals) to the Vermont Food Bank as part of the “Vow To Give” program for Vermont wedding professionals.
