conquering obstacles together; reaching new heights hand-in-hand… if nature has shaped your relationship into what it is today, it only makes sense that you would incorporate it into your wedding. after all,

this is your love story.

i’m amber, owner of compass collective (compass coll for short), and i’m a new-england based adventurous couples + outdoor wedding photographer with a passion for sustainable living and a serious travel bug.

i don’t want to be your photographer… i want to be SO much more than that.

i want to hike alongside you, crack terrible jokes, cry behind the camera when you say your vows, grab a beer + tear up the dance floor with you, and then reminisce about your day forever.

i want to be the best freakin’ third wheel you’ve ever had.

there are very few things in this world that light me up more than being immersed in love. i strongly believe that it’s the highest frequency and that it becomes even more amplified in the presence of nature.

so if you’re looking for a photographer to connect with on a much deeper level and incorporating the outdoors into your marriage celebration is a non-negotiable for you + your babe because it’s shaped who you’ve become, consider me your girl!

amber shot our engagement and wedding photos, and captured my husband and i perfectly. she is calm and allows things to flow naturally, but also has a talented eye and is able to move subjects into the perfect shot. there was zero stress on our wedding day with amber taking charge. she got all of the shots i wanted, with plenty of time left to relax and enjoy the day. amber even helped keep the night on track when our DJ was late, taking stress off of me – and for that I am unbelievably grateful. she is a professional who knows what she is doing and clearly LOVES to do it.

also, if your photographer doesn’t wear corduroys and chucks, how could you even trust them????? xoxo

alright everyone, buckle up. when we were choosing a photographer for our engagement shoot, these were our three critical line items: feeling comfortable enough to create photos that feel authentic, shooting in a location that was unique, and of course – the quality of the photos. compass collective checked all the boxes and i was over the moon when amber had our wedding date available. after getting back from our engagement shoot before even receiving sneak peek pics let alone our album, i reflected on those three subconscious “critical line items” and laughed at myself. not that those things weren’t important, but it wasn’t until after working with amber that she unknowingly created the most important line item of all – the one that i can not stress the importance of – a memory. when our album was delivered, i scrolled through 3+ hours of a documented memory of hiking up a mountain with my fiancé from not a photographer, but the perspective of a new friend, hanging out at the top, storytelling, summit beers, and back down a mountain. amber’s artwork is undoubtedly beautiful – that’s originally why we chose her! but she is so much more than that. our engagement shoot was a memory – a real memory – one that we will talk about forever, and then have gorgeous authentic photos to refer back to about it. and that, is very – very special.

amber exceeded my expectations in every way possible! i initially contacted compass collective to photograph my surprise engagement proposal. i shared my idea with amber and before i knew it, she helped me plan everything adding her creative touch along the way. without hesitation, she trekked up a mountain at 4 am in the dark to bring the perfect sunrise picnic to life. not to mention, she spent days leading up to the proposal scouting the ideal location and collecting aesthetic props. amber is far more than a photographer; her creativity and ambition separate her from the rest. my now fiancé & i would 10/10 recommend compass collective, and look forward to working with amber in the future!

if you're searching for a laid-back, personable, professional, artistic photographer who will make you and your love feel completely at ease, then amber is your gal. 📸 i was lucky to only search for a very brief time before reaching out to amber. i KNEW i had to have her for our photographer. she effortlessly captured our cutest candid moments, but also gently guided us when we were feeling a little camera shy. our engagement photos came out better than we ever could have imagined. she even FLEW TO NORTH CAROLINA in order to accommodate us, since we're living down south but will be getting married in massachusetts. i don't know of many photographers that would immediately jump on the thought of a southern-bbq-rib-eating photoshoot, but amber did 😉 we had our photos completely processed and placed in a private online gallery for us to view, download full-resolution files and purchase prints within a week of our session. i truly can't recommend amber enough, and i am so freakin' excited to have her capture our big day in may!

i cannot express how much fun my fiancé and i had at our engagement shoot. amber is down-to-earth and makes being photographed feel natural and not awkward at all. she takes the time to get to know you and understand who you are and is able to perfectly capture those moments. like amber's personality, these photos are beautiful and captivating with warm tone to them. i must admit, i was really nervous because our engagement shoot was the first photo shoot i have done. however, as soon as amber arrived it felt like we were just hanging out and my nerves of being photographed dissipated. also, i wanted to mention that after signing with amber we had an unexpected venue change and she was unbelievably understanding and accommodating. if you are looking for a photographer i highly recommend amber. she is an 11/10!
