Hello and Welcome!
My name is Amanda and I am a professional event planner, published photographer and stylist, and recipe developer. I created this space as a place to talk, share, and teach about all my favorite things...parties, food, traveling, and capturing and styling photos!
I started event planning in 2013, but really got into the "blog" world, starting this website when I moved to St. Louis in 2015 as a way to meet new people and build a community. I created a food blog called "Feed Me with Amanda". It was a place where I could share my favorite recipes, travels and where to eat on those travels. But I wanted to expand beyond that and encompass all the things I do and love. Now I'm back in California, living in Newport Beach, and hoping to share everything with you all here on my new site Amanda Wilens where we together will Plan, Plate, and Celebrate!
Since starting this blog I've met and worked with some amazing folks and I am so lucky to have such an amazing support system. I've now expanded from my events background to styling, recipe development, workshops, photography, and social media. I love working with great companies and restaurants. If you would like to work on a recipe or project together, please feel free to email me at wilensamanda(at)gmail(dot)com or head to my contact page.
To see my photography and styling portfolio for products, food, family, and travels please head over to amandawilensphotography.com!
I've joined a few teams that I am so happy to be a part of. I'm an editor on the feedfeed for the Sprinkle Feed. I am also a contributor to LaurenConrad.com, contributor and influencer for LC Lauren Conrad, and contribute photos and recipes to The Little Market. Some of my features and partners across different pages can be found below!
