live in the moments



I’m passionate about capturing the real emotion and vulnerability of your event. The inspiration for my moody photography comes from texture, raw emotion, and deep colors.





I’m Mandy – a tall, friendly, silly wife and mom to twins. I love that I get to be passionate and creative through photography!

When I’m not behind the camera or spending time with my family, you can usually find me sipping Vanilla Chai, munching on Sour Patch Kids, loving on my dog Mara, and singing.


I truly never imagined I’d have a wildly successful career as a professional photographer. But then again, I never saw myself settling into a desk job for the rest of my life either. When I had my twins at the wise old age of 27 (ha!) I still had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. Up until then, I actually loved being in all the pictures and I even modeled for a few years. But, after a horrible experience at a modeling call, I decided that it was not the right job for me!

Have you seen the movie 27 Dresses? The one with Katherine Heigl where she’s always a bridesmaid or the maid of honor but never the bride? (Cheesy confession: it’s actually one of my favorite movies!)

I have been in 13 weddings; ­ 6 as a maid of honor and 2 as an honorary maid of honor (of course, I’ve also been the bride!). I am closing in on having my own 27 dresses! I loved everything about each one – throwing the parties, getting gifts for the brides, being a part of the wedding party, and everything in between!

When I first got into photography I never dreamed that I would love capturing weddings, but looking back it seems so obvious. 



“Mandy was amazing! My best friend actually surprised with Mandy as we were going to the courthouse! 🙂 I had no idea she was going to be there, but she made it all so much more special! Her pictures are amazing! I’m so so so happy with them! The blog she writes with the photos is a true testament to her work and the time she spends with her clients! I will most definitely use her again!!“
