Amaranth is the collaboration of documentary photographers Sheila Griffin and Becky Holladay. Becky and Sheila met while studying at the International Center of Photography and discovered their mutual love for all things square, dreamy, and Brooklyn. They’ve been photographing weddings together since the Fall of 2009. Their clients come to them because they want traditional documentary coverage that looks anything but traditional.
Their photo essays and written essays have appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times, Vision Magazine, New York Magazine, and numerous other regional and national publications. They have both been nominated for the New York Photo Awards, and been the recipients of fellowships from The International Center of Photography. Sheila has received awards from the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP), and the International Photography Awards. Their work has been exhibited at the ICP Education Gallery, at 25 CPW in Manhattan, and at the Pingyao International Photo Festival in Pingyao, China. They are both members of the collective of documentary photographers, What We Saw.
