My name is Amanda and I am a professional event planner, as well as a published photographer, stylist, and recipe developer. I created this site as a place to share and teach about all my favorite things...parties, food, 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 the Sacramento area, 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 hello(at)amandawilens(dot)com or head to my contact page.
To see my photography and styling portfolio for products, food, family, and travels, as well as my social media and digital marketing services, please head over to amandawilensphotography.com!
I've joined a few teams that I am so happy to be a part of.
