My passion is photography and the pursuit to show people the beauty within themselves. I want you to see how I see you, and how the world sees you. Not the person your subconscious has told you you are.

I’d love to share my passion with you; capturing innovative, compelling, & authentic images of YOU for your wedding. -Amy May CPP (Certified professional photographer) Amy May Photography

Contact Us About Your Wedding Plans


I don’t have too much to say except that we loved Galena Mini Weddings! We booked the elopement package and I and my hubby were thrilled with the romantic and personable touches we received at Galena Mini Weddings!

This was a very special event for us and we both could not have been happier with the arrangements, execution and fantastic results! The inside, the outside and the staff made my wedding day lovely. Thank you for making such a special day more special and memorable.


We just booked our November wedding here and were so happy that they could meet our special requests for a last minute outdoor wedding, very helpful and friendly!



Completely took the stress out of planning our quick elopement, everything was included. Highly Recommend!
