Amy Pezzicara is a professional photographer based in Tampa, Florida, specializing in weddings, portraiture and an editorial/commercial mix of interiors, food and people. When it’s sweltering in Florida she heads north for summer sessions in New York City and the surrounding Tri-State area. Amy began her professional career as a science teacher and museum designer before she embraced photography full-time.

A vegetarian foodie (married to a carnivore), mother of three fur children, environmentalist, traveler, kayaker, insatiable learner, left-handed (although all cameras are right-handed) Amy is a photographer who loves to make people smile!
