WHO I AM...


Amy Meyer, Founder of The Soul Shine Collective.


I am a human first. Perfectly imperfect. I wear many hats besides photographer and hold the titles of: mom, creative entrepreneur, author, & movement junkie (RYT200 yogi and CF-L1 CrossFit coach. My photography journey has been a fun ride over the last 15 years. One that began in my first "career job" out of college in Gatlinburg, Tennessee... my boss handed me a SLR film camera and the manual and told me that I am to shoot the fireworks for a city wide event... I had an uh oh moment. Up until that moment, I had never used anything but my pocket digital one or the film camera my parents had growing up. But I had a job to do and he had faith in me. Challenge accepted, manual studied & lesson learned... curiosity can lead to a lifelong passion...and we really can do anything we set our minds to. So it began...(as me knowing event photography was NOT my forte.... but landscape (hello, East Tennessee!) was definitely of interest.)


A few years later I bought my first DSLR camera - then a few years later, another. Then I had my first daughter. The most perfect subject. Then another camera. Then another daughter.....yet another perfect subject .... and so the journey has continued. I ventured from landscape photography and added humans in my work ;) and have dabbled in all the realms from commercial / branding to real estate to cake smashes to family and seniors and newborns and boudoir. All of it lights me up in some way and when I'm asked to narrow it down to a favorite, it's always the same answer - the sessions that capture the real the raw and bring it to light.


I look forward to working with you, getting to know you & capturing YOUR real & raw.
