OWNER & LEAD PHOTOGRAPHER
I am the owner & founder of Modern Color Photography and with over 8 years of experience I have photographed over 400 families. I have a studio in the heart of Columbia, South Carolina and have expanded our services to offer more safe, intimate, photo sessions that you and your family can talk about for years to come. I love being a part of your special day and capturing something tangible you can hold on to. Capturing memories puts a smile on my face and makes my job so fulfilling.
I am influenced by real life emotion. My approach is based on documentary lifestyle.
I believe that every person is unique and that’s what I try to capture — a collection of storytelling images which are uniquely yours. Real life isn’t a perfectly posed portrait.
It’s movement, it’s play, it’s raw feelings. My work is about capturing the essence of you and your family with storytelling that is frame-worthy. I am passionate about creating images that you are guaranteed to fall in love with.
The best way to evaluate a photographer is to look at their portfolio. No matter what is written in a photographer’s biography, their photos will tell you what you want to know about them.
The most satisfying moments for me are when clients love the results of our sessions.
When they see what we have created together then I am at my happiest, because with every photo, I have put my heart and soul into my work.
I am a mom to a handsome and energetic 13-year old & I love spending time with him in my free time. I also have an amazing wife, and if you stick around long enough you will most likely meet her as well. She does so much for us at Modern Color Photography & we are truly grateful!
The best word to describe my personality is outgoing. I love meeting people and experiencing life. Photography is literally an outlet to express my creativity and meet new people. It's the best of both worlds... The bee's knees. The best thing about what I do is the passion I have while doing it. I get to hang out with people and capture amazing memories.

Here at MDC, I represent a female-black-owned business. I believe in standing for what matters & "being the change." I take pride in not only representing the LGBTQ+ community but serving that same community. Our culture here at Modern Color Photography photographs people from all backgrounds, religious traditions, and countries. We proudly tell the love stories of anyone and everyone!
We not only want you take pictures you are proud of but to have a photographer you can be proud of who stands with you. With that being said, we would be honored to photograph your family for any memory or occasion.
“Amber was absolutely amazing! She caught and kept the attention of my busy 5 month old. We felt very relaxed and comfortable and our photos turned out great! Can't wait to use her again."
Modern Color Photography was incredibly creative, fun to work with and flexible. If you are concerned that the quality is low because the price is affordable. Amber, the photographer was great, and she was able to match the service to our needs. My pictures were beautifully done and ready in a timely fashion. I would recommend her to everyone and give her without a doubt, 5 stars
"My pictures turned out beautiful! Thanks for your prompt service and being flexible with the time and venue. I will refer you to everyone looking to have pictures done!"
