Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment, until it becomes a memory.

When Mike and I first moved to Raleigh we, for lack of a better term, shopped around for a church to attend. When we were in our deciding process, we attending a Young Professionals gathering at The Summit Church. It was here that we met Megan. She became our first official friend in Raleigh! We […]

On October 4th I received an email from my contact form from Collette. She started by saying she loves my style and way of capturing a story–words any photographer would love to hear! When I asked her how she had heard about me, she said: Honestly, in unfortunately typical 2017 fashion, I have no idea […]

Just in case you didn’t know, the only thing better than ONE adorable, 3-years-old, fashionable, blonde-haired beauty is TWO! These identical twin girls share a special sisterly bond that will be so special as they grow up. It was a perfect fall day when I met with Addison & McKenzie and their sweet Momma at […]

We absolutely love with Shannon & Alex come to visit because there’s always a chance that we can capture more photos of them! As some of you may know, Shannon and I met when we were both interning at Young Life’s Rockbridge Alum Springs in the summer of 2012. One of the best things about […]

AG1 Photography is now Amy and Archer Photography. As you may or may not know, AG1 Photography started back in 2011 right after I graduated from Ithaca College. To make a long story short, a nickname of mine in college was AGinsbe1 (the username I had for my school email). When I started taking photo […]

A few months ago I met with Sarah and her mom at a Panera in North Raleigh to discuss potentially capturing Sarah’s upcoming wedding to Eric. Whenever I do one of these meetings, one of the first things I ask is the story of how he proposed. I was in for quite the surprise when […]

Last month I participated in a styled shoot put together by Elizabeth’s Events at Carlee Farm in Oxford, NC. This shoot was really more like two different shoots in one! Today I’m sharing images from Part 1 of the shoot, which featured a beautiful gown by Gretchen Anderson of Edith-Elan. This is the Rosalyn gown […]

Rebranding Announcement! Well, I suppose it’s important to start at the beginning! Did you know that before AG1 Photography, we were referred to as A. Ginsbe. One. Photography? Talk about a mouthful! There’s a funny story that goes along with why that was the original name, and I’d like to share that with you as […]

Shannon & Alex drove all the way to Raleigh from Lynchburg, VA just so we could snap a few photos at Umstead State Park on a cold Sunday morning. I’m so in love with how these turned out!

When I was in 3rd grade my family moved from California to Maryland. One of the first people I met was Lauren. I was shy and wasn’t so talkative at the bus stop, so one day when I was riding my bike in our cul-de-sac, Lauren hopped on hers and purposely crashed into me. Her […]
