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. When I began photographing weddings, I finally felt like I could see an enjoyable career ahead. I am loving what I get to do for a living and each wedding season truly does get better and better.

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 the love shown between you and your partner or laughter with your children is what makes an image speak.

HOW I WORK

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!

MY LIFE

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 love to cook, garden & take weekend trips any chance we get.

MY ANIMALS

I adore all animals, they have always pulled on my heart strings. I have two Schnauzers, Sherman & Lemon and most recently acquired little Tortuga the turtle. Eventually we would love to give a loving home to some chickens, goats and if I have my way, a pig or two.
