"Her light and bright photos captured our vibe perfectly."

I highly recommend Mandi for any of your wedding photo or portrait needs! She is highly responsive and so sweet. When we met her in person we felt totally relaxed and shooting the photos was a breeze. She coached us on how to pose which made our photos look so naturally beautiful. We had a lot of fun together while she snapped pics. Highly recommend!

We are so grateful for all she did to make our day so special!

Mandi is truly the best! Not only is she AMAZING at what she does, she is also one of the sweetest people ever who made this process all the more fun. She made my husband and I feel so comfortable and confident in front of the camera, and could not have been more kind and responsive throughout the entire process.

Frequently asked questions

Do you include a second photographer?

Yes! Second photographers are included in all wedding packages. This allows us to be in multiple places at once and serve you better!

are there travel fees?

Travel fees will apply to any wedding or engagement session beyond 100 miles round trip from the photographer's address in Abingdon, MD.

what is the turnaround time?

Average wedding turnaround time is 6 weeks, but may take up to 8 weeks. Engagement sessions are delivered within 2 weeks.

do you bring backup equipment?

Absolutely! I bring several cameras & lenses in case of failure. I also use dual card slots, so images are backed up in multiple places.

who retains copyright of the images?

As your photographer, I will retain copyright of the images, however I provide a print release allowing unlimited personal use and printing.

how many weddings have you photographed?

Over 250! I started my journey way back in 2012 as a college kid. I now run my business full time and so I'm blessed!

I’VE NEVER HAD MY PHOTO TAKEN — WHAT DO I DO WITH MY HANDS?!

No worries! I help guide you to some natural positions that will look great in your photos.  My goal is for you to have fun and capture awesome photos.

do you provide raw photos?

No - That's like buying the first draft of a book! All images will be edited to improve lighting, contrast, and color — all of which is a standard process for professional photographers. 

when can i book my Engagement?

All non-wedding sessions are conducted Mondays - Thursdays, typically in the evenings if outdoors!

Our photos are gorgeous and beyond my hopes and expectations. They are so colorful and bright, and I think really capture genuine moments and emotions.
