A LITTLE ABOUT ME

Hello! My name is Mandi, I am a 31 year old full time Wedding Photographer based in Southern California. I am very lucky to have gotten into photography at a young age and shot my first wedding in 2011. I am as homebody as homebody can get. Camping is one of the few reasons I will happily leave my house, and even then, I’m pretty particular about my tent. My love, Frankie, is a talented woodworker & my perfect partner. We enjoy cooking, gardening & take weekend trips any chance we get. We have two dogs, Sherman & Lemon + we can’t forget little Tortuga the turtle. (Sadly, he did not make it into this family portrait. Next time!)

HOW I WORK

Let me start by saying, there is a very high chance I will cry behind my camera at your wedding. Whether it be a sweet moment between you and a loved one, reading a card from your spouse or a sweet speech from a parent during dinner, it’s bound to happen. I enjoy heartfelt weddings & with all of the craziness a wedding day can bring, it’s enjoyable for me to work with couples who want to keep focused on what is important. While I understand the desire for that perfect sunset, finding that flattering outfit for your session or having every detail of your reception design come together seamlessly, I truly believe what makes a killer gallery is the human interaction.

Everyone wants their wedding to run smoothly while also being beautiful, organic and fun. I am a planner by nature, I invest a lot of time into preparation for each photography timeline. This allows for you to feel more relaxed once the day arrives, soak up every little moment together & have fun!

Let the vendors handle the rest, as planned. Ultimately this will give you beautiful & natural wedding images + a gallery filled with even more loving and fun moments!
