Amanda Andrade-Rhoades


As DC Refined's photojournalist, Amanda shows you the stories that often go unseen and the beauty in the seemingly mundane. She honed her keen eye for detail while living and working in California, but these days Amanda can usually be found photographing on the streets of her adopted home, Washington, D.C. Previously, Amanda has worked as a crime and politics reporter, nanny and ghost writer for online dating profiles.

When she isn't laden in camera gear, Amanda is begging her neighbors to let her pet their dogs, struggling through a new recipe or expanding her collection of lipstick she doesn't wear.
