Amber Henry is an international award-winning wedding and portrait photographer based in Michigan USA. Amber’s creative, romantic, and uniquely stylized images have been featured around the world, but her greatest joy is capturing irreplaceable life moments. She has been a professional photographer for over 17 years, taking huge pride in offering highly unique, romantic, and timeless photography.Spending most of her young adult life as a single mother of three sons, Amber started from the absolute bottom and grew her studio from the ground up. She is self-taught, seeking out education in every form she could find, knowing the years of perseverance would one day pay off as she fought to overcome the weight of poverty. Every day she counts herself as grateful to do what she loves as her life’s work.
Amber has collected a variety of awards from international organizations including WPPI, WPE, PPA, Portrait Masters, and Fearless Photographers as well as published worldwide. She is a proud Ambassador of Cheetah Stand and other great brands like Magmod, Geekoto, Studio Ninja, and Flash Masters. Her desire to pass on what she has learned includes one-on-one mentorship programs, and an online group exclusive to women photographers called Females Who Flash. She is proficient in both natural light and strobe, which allows her to make any location at any time of day look extraordinary.
"I strongly believe that good tools make for better photographs, and so I want to make sure I have the best tools available at all times. Portability, consistency, and power are what I look for in my equipment, and that is why I choose Cheetah Stands! The quickness with which I can move from one location to the next is unmatched, not to mention how durable these guys are. In the studio, I am living for my rolling-boom stand, and out on location, I carry an array of Cheetah auto-light stands. I can quickly move from one location to the next without tripping over stands or constantly adjusting my legs. Cheetah Stands are hands-down the winners in their market!"Amber believes all body types and all walks of life should be photographed and captured in the most beautiful way, and that each human being is a unique soul deserving of love with a story to tell. Above all else, her core value is rooted in the belief that absolutely anyone can change their stars.
