I'm Mandy, a San Diego wedding photographer & educator specializing in fine-art photography. When I'm not photographing my amazing clients, I'm busy as an overly obsessive dog mom, capturing life’s beautiful moments with my husband, Chris, and reveling in Teddy antics.

Lake Tahoe Wedding Photographer | Jacob and Carrolann

I’m so happy that I found Jacob and Carrolann! They’re so cool. Their fashion is on point, and I never see them not smiling. I knew their chill personalities would be the perfect fit to make an adventure out of our engagement shoot. They wanted something different from the norm, and I think these Northern Nevada dunes pulled through for them!
