about mandy

My name is Mandy and I am a wedding photographer, based out of Southern California. I’m also industry educator, private editor, wife, and dog mom - fueled by outdoor adventure, cinnamon dolce coffee, and Brookside chocolate.

I’m married to my best friend, Chris, and together we’ve traveled all across the country for his military career. This has opened doors for me to document weddings and love stories in some of the most beautiful places in the country: San Diego, Lake Tahoe, Northern California, Big Sur, Hawaii, Ireland, Oregon, Colorado, Virginia Beach, Ohio, Massachusetts, and Florida to name a few. 

All of my travels have led me to grow deeply passionate about my craft. I am a film hybrid photographer with a light and airy aesthetic. This means I shoot both digital images and medium format film to achieve my aesthetic. Film, to me, achieves a soft, classic color range that can’t be emulated with a digital camera alone. I strive for a level of quintessential, authentic romance in my work - so you end up with photos as remarkable as you are, with an experience to match.
