50 Essential Portrait Photographers: Amber Hughes of Amber Hughes Photography

Amber Hughes is a photographer based in Vancouver whose inspiration is love in all its forms. Be it a bride and groom or parents with their new little one, Amber loves to document the relationships and personalities that make each family unique.


Why did you get into photography?

I’ve always loved photography… from the moment I first held a camera as a child it’s been a passion for me. Over the years I flirted with the possibility of entering the profession but it was my husband who pushed me to go for my dreams, offering his support and love while I set up and expanded my business. I’ve never looked back since those first days! I’m truly living my dream with every photo I take and am always looking to the future with excitement over the images I’ve yet to create.


Tell us a bit about your company.

While my focus is primarily weddings I still hold a special place in my heart for newborn, maternity and family sessions. Family is who we are and where we come from… I love documenting that special relationship for all to see! My goal is to produce images that will be seen as heirlooms for the years to come. Not just a documentation of what you looked like, but of who you were and what you felt at that time in your life.

How would you characterize your style of photography?

Honest, vibrant, fun and modern. I try to really show off the setting as well as the subject.. and while I do pose my clients, I always find my favorite photos come when they relax and make the pose their own.



Who are your clients?

My clients are generally fun loving, quick to laugh and detail oriented. If you love love and adore the small things in life, then chances are I’m the photographer for you!

What should your mom clients expect when working with you?

I like to laugh and have fun… and I’m endlessly patient with little ones! Being an Auntie is one of the most important roles in my life, and the lessons it’s taught me carry over into my work as well. I’m very experienced with making children laugh and always understanding when little ones get tired and need to rest.



Anything else to add?

I feel like I’m the luckiest person in the world. I get to meet and photograph so many wonderful people at amazing times in their lives, all the while pushing myself to grow as an artist. I truly can’t think of anything else I would rather be doing with my life and I’m thankful for every moment of it!
