Amy Hutchinson Photography

When people ask me who the #1 Wedding Photographer in Memphis I have to say that we have so many talented artists with so many different styles that it is hard to choose just one, however some of the Photographers certainly stand out from the crowd and rise to the cream of the crop and one of those is certainly Amy Hutchinson photography.  Amy and Ed are a husband and wife team who love adventure.  They share a creative spirit and passion for excellence that is visible in every single photo.  Their style is a bright and timeless capture of real moments.  Not only are their photographs amazing, but their attitudes are as well.  These two make your wedding day so much fun and stress free!  While shooting alongside Amy at a wedding I commented to her that she was a master of capturing quiet moments in a tornado.  Wedding days happen fast and this team will create timeless photos that you will cherish for a lifetime without you even realizing what they are doing.  Amy Hutchinson Photography are seasoned pros with a passion for learning, keeping their style current, and bringing you the best service they can possibly offer!  If you choose AHP as your wedding photographer you are certainly choosing one of Memphis’ best!

We feel honored that Amy and Ed chose us to make them an “About Us” video for their website.  In this video you can feel the excitement they have for their art and witness a loving teamwork that propels their work in the the stratosphere.  Amy & Ed, you guys rock!

Wedding Season 1 2017

Wow! May and early June has been a whirlwind of wonderful weddings. I’m so proud of the work our team is producing in capturing the stories of some really amazing moments. We returned from Worlds with a renewed sprit and fire and that momentum has translated in our wedding work climbing to new heights. Now we can’t take all the credit for the upswing in that we have to thank the couple’s who trust us with their wedding films, the planners, photographers, venues and vendors who work tirelessly beside us, and our families who support our time consuming passion for digital storytelling.

As always take a look at this recent work and if you would like to speak to someone on our team about capturing the story of your wedding day call Justin at (901) 490-1275 or email at

Our promise to you is that we will never stop reaching for improvement and greatness in every project we approach.

We couldn’t do this with you!

2016 Year in Review

WOW! What a year! We filmed a ton of great weddings, even more awesome corporate projects, toured the country with the USASF and created tons of fantastic video projects for people.

We updated all of our gear this year to make the projects we shoot even more dynamic and our whole teamed upped our skill level to reach true Black Belt Video Ninja status!

I think the tag line that Message in a Bottle uses about its work rings true, “We love what we do and we hope that it shows in each and every video!”

Just wanted to take a timeout to that all of our clients and friends for a super awesome year! We look forward to creating even better projects in 2017.

The road ahead is shiny and bright for our Message in a Bottle Productions Team!

Lets Make 2017 the BEST YET!

Where did 2016 go!?!

Summer 2016 has kept us more than busy and we’re showing no signs of slowing down!
With the addition of our newest shooter/editor, Mitchell, it was time to move to a larger office. Wait, did you say new shooter?! That’s right, Message in a Bottle Productions has a team of 4 full time shooter/editors, including Justin! With such a team and the growth we’re seeing, not only did we need office space, but the new MIABP headquarters features a 2000sqft studio, as well as a comfortable consultation space for meeting clients and discussing their projects!.

While moving into the new office, we were also gearing up for our yearly trip to DisneyWorld for the Cheerleading & Dance Worlds, which consists of 7 days of non-stop filming and editing, but the prep for Worlds begins weeks before the event, with promo hype videos and in the weeks following, edits for ESPN and social media platforms.

As soon as we arrived home, we hit the ground running with weddings every weekend, complete with highlight films within a few days of each couple’s amazing celebration. As temperatures rise, weddings slow a bit and make way for a month-long tour of events around the country, where we shoot, edit and deliver several videos from each stop within a few weeks of location wrap. Mix in a few birthday parties and gender reveals, a handful of real estate videos, a documentary or two and a music video and you’re about caught up. But we’re not! We still have a full schedule of weddings to keep us busy until the end of the year.

No matter how busy we are, its always fun to take a break and hang out with our friends that we share the Memphis market with. Check out our highlight video below from Simply Delicious’s tasting at The Memphis Zoo!

We’d like to thank our wonderful clients and fellow industry professionals, you make what we do that much more enjoyable and we’re happy to serve you!
