I done the photo shoot with Amanda Hsu, the owner of Cranberry studio and it was absolutely lovely experience... She is very talented and creative, with plenty of ideas every single moment...Committed to her work, experienced, patient, calm, taking care about every detail: hair, make up, posing, shadows, lights, expression of the face, body talk, absolutely everything to make perfect photo. The shoot we made together was absolutely professional, and at the end all photos were done to perfection - I strongly believe that is the only way she do it.. *My honest recommendation, Amanda is certainly the best portrait photographer in Malta…
From photographer to model. Last weekend I was in front of the camera with a very talented photographer Amanda Hsu It was a great experience and fun shoot with an amazing photographer Amanda and great Make Up Artist. Thank you both so much, you are a great team. An experience not to be missed and definitely worth it. I was impressed by her professionalism, talent and guidance. Yesterday I saw the first outcome and I am really happy with it Thanks so much Amanda I had so much fun and you are great in making people feel comfortable I can only recommend to every photographer a similar experience, especially to portrait photographers. It teaches you so much how your models feel.
I have just taken part in my first photo shoot and I have to say both my daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves thanks to you.You were so patient and guided us through the wonderful experience relaxing us and making us feel totally at ease. Your guidance on poses and make up was very helpful enabling us to get some great shots. Thanks very much Amanda and I would certainly recommend this shoot to anyone.
Amanda Is a very talented photographer, and a wonderful lady! I was apprehensive about the photo shoot, but she very soon put me at ease. I thoroughly enjoyed myself, Amanda, I loved every moment, you are a great personality and photographer. and you made me feel, and look, beautiful and for that I thank you very much. Much love from an appreciative subject. x x x
I would highly recommend Amanda, the owner of Cranberry Photography Studio. She is an extremely talented photographer and artist. I had a graduation shoot with her and I am so happy with the outcome. Whilst I was there I also took a natural portrait photo. It was such a lovely experience! Cannot wait for my next photo shoot session with you.Thank you Amanda .. Amazing work! 🙂
Amanda really made me at ease from the start! She is highly professional and really guides you step by step on how to get the best out of you! I was not confident and I needed a boost to be able to feel ok in front of the camera,but not only Amanda made me feel great, but also the pictures came out amazing!! Truly highly recommended! Thank you Amanda!’
I never had photoshoots before. Was thinking that only photogenic people looks great on photos. Would like to thank Amanda Hsu for these professional photos, she's easy and spontaneous in her work and took the best out of me. At the end it was really hard to choose as all photos looks amazing. Thank you Amanda
How was the photo shoot you had with Amanda? Amanda is extremely professional. We had a meeting prior to the shoot. She had her technical people at the shoot ( hair and makeup) who knew exactly what she wanted. What’s experience like?" The shooting part is fun but posing can be hard when you are not used to it. The preparation part, make-up and hair was done at Pjazza Teatru Rjal in the wonderful backstage dressing rooms which makes you feel in performance mode. We had the studio shots there and then went to the Chamber of Commerce to shoot the formal dress there. In situations where I am not expert, I leave decisions in the hands of others, otherwise I tend to take over.
I gifted myself a professional photo shoot for my 39th birthday, while visiting Malta and plan to do it each year from now on. Thank you Amanda Hsu Photography for the beautiful images you captured. The entire experience was worthy, very relaxing, Amanda was great at giving me directions, easy to follow. This experience gave me more confidence, worth trying for everyone.
Thank you very much for lovely photo session. Amanda has a very approachable and nice personality, and puts you at ease from the very first moment. She is very flexible and accepts your own ideas, at the same time she gives valuable hints on how to look better and present yourself in the best ways possible. Experimenting with light and composition, finding great spots for the shot, taking variety of shots in a relatively short span of time. Great fun, the time flew by… I’m very happy with the pictures I’ve received, would gladly do it again and recommend to my friends.
With such a hectic schedule it is so rare for me to have the luxury of a day to myself. Having my hair and makeup done professionally was a real treat. The job I have now is mostly "behind the scenes", orchestrating situations around other people with productions, concerts and educational programmes. Being in the limelight for the day was different, and fun. Amanda shared a sense of that fun so that the photo shoot was easy going and enjoyable. All in all, a special day, organised in a highly professional manner!
Amanda thank you so much for the beautiful experience. I have never been fond of taking photographs but you made me feel comfortable and truly enjoyed the experience. You are AMAZING! ❤️❤️❤️❤️ You have the great ability of putting people at ease and bring the beauty inside to the outside!! That is such a unique talent. I cannot thank you enough for making me feel at ease and beautiful!! Only you could bring the self confidence in the forefront. Forever grateful!!
A very big thank you to a very professional photographer Amanda Hsu for the beautiful pictures u took for us. She was very helpful. and she helps her clients on their future experiences in photography by showing them and giving them ideas on how is their best angles and positions to get best results in pictures…. thanks dear we never got as much likes on Facebook, as we got for your pics. xxxx we look forward to work with you in the future.
I have never had a professional photo shoot and was quite looking forward to the experience. It was great. The make up artist did a brilliant job and I wish I have her with me at home every morning. I never liked make up very much and I am not very skilled on applying it. she managed to make it look so natural. I also do not like to be photographed as I am not a natural with the camera and rather feel stiff and not knowing how to look or smile. Amanda a real professional. She talked and I did not even notice that she took photos. It all was made so easy and fun and I really enjoyed it.
Amanda's photos stand out particularly for the natural poses and glances that she succeeds in bringing out of whoever she is capturing. Her method somehow reminds me a bit of the concept of Michelangelo carving the extra stone away from the already-exisiting soul of the sculpture. The artistic style and the way she uses light, colour and contrast is at the service of the subject she photographs, and not vicecersa…
We loved our experience,It was our first time doing a professional photo shoot. Within seconds of taking the first photo Amanda had us relaxed, laughing & being ourselves. We recommend Amanda Hsu for a photo session especially when you have children. Amanda is a very patient and kind person. She understands that children are not always in a good mood !
As women, we often receive way more comments about how we look rather than our accomplishments, talents, personality or character. But our appearance, including our body size and weight, do not determine our value. There are far more things that make us valuable in the world, and we need to start finding our strengths and appreciating them! The old me would not have felt comfortable showing this picture with so much of my arms showing. The new me though loves this pic! It shows who I am entirely 🙂 It shows my character and personality and how happy I am with my life at the moment. As well as being a testament to my body which has been through so much and carried me at my heaviest! I am in awe of Amanda who has managed to capture me so entirely in photograph 🙂 thanks so much i truly appreciate how dedicated to u are at making women feel great ☺️
I was impressed, how nice is Amanda and how professional she works It was a very nice experience. She managed to turn shyness in enjoyment, and the result is the good snapshots taken. I wish you the best of success Amanda Hsu, thanks again for your good work and for making me feel so comfortable. ￼
I was nervous but i knew I just needed to be myself...that's why i was asked to do this. I was worried I might not look good enough, but then again, feeling good was probably the most important aspect of the shoot. Every little bit of nervousness and anxiety would show through a photo. The stills were what I most nervous about because the camera would meet my eyes and perhaps reveal something in my soul. So the challenge was to reach a balance between how I looked and reacted to the camera and how I was feeling about myself. Looking at the camera lens during a still shoot was like digging into my deepest self.
