My name is Mandy and I am a wedding photographer based out of Southern California. Fueled by salty air, the mountains, and a chocolate-chunk pup named Ted, I live for travel and adventure.  I have such a passion for capturing unique, sun-drenched love stories, full of laughter and warmth! 

I’m married to my best friend, Chris, and we've been all over the world! I'm fortunate to have captured weddings and love stories in some of the most beautiful places on this earth: San Diego, Lake Tahoe, Northern California, Big Sur, Hawaii, Ireland, Oregon, Colorado, Virginia, The Midwest, Southeast, and Northeast to name a few. When I'm not documenting love stories, I spend my weekdays as a Coronado Photographer, documenting precious family photos at the Hotel Del Coronado. 

My travels have led me to grow deeply passionate about my craft, and I'm excited to document your love story. Let's start this adventure!

I am a film hybrid photographer with a light and airy aesthetic. Film, to me, produces 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. The collection below showcase some of my recent featured work.
