Amber Henry Bio:
Amber Henry is a self-taught, published and award-winning photographer, specialising in weddings and portraiture. Amber has been featured in Professional Photography Magazine, as well as instructing for PPA. Having three sons at home, Amber is good at multi-tasking and taking care of other people’s needs.
Starting her career in one of the smallest towns in Michigan, while herself dependent on welfare, she learned quickly how to take beautiful images under very unappealing circumstances. Studying lighting and posing through online courses, reading and reaching out to industry leaders, helped her create images of her clients that made them look and feel like magazine-worthy models, and her reputation quickly grew as “The” wedding photographer to get.
Photography was the key to Amber taking her family out of poverty and into a wonderfully happy and fulfilling life. Amber is a fighter, someone who can find the best in any situation. She always goes above and beyond for every client, never settling or depending on the minimum. She imagines herself as the client, and tries to photograph them in a way that she would a person whom she loves; bringing out the very best and helping them to shine.
Amber believes that no matter what your circumstances or background, reaching the place you dream of is absolutely possible – with tears, determination, a lot of late nights and the right amount of guts, sweat and passion.
