here's how my process flows...

02 | Meet & greet

We'll set up a phone call, coffee or Zoom date to connect. We'll get to know each other, go over your wedding plans so far, discuss your vision for your photography.

After this consult, if we're a good fit and you wish to have me photograph your event, I will then send over a contract, invoice and questionnaire. A non-refundable deposit is due at the time of booking to secure your wedding date.

03 | engagement photos

Engagement photos are more than fun snapshots; they’re one of the first mile markers in your wedding planning journey. This fun, low-stress photo session is like a wedding-day dry run. You’ll learn to perfect all sorts of flattering poses while capturing save-the-date and wedding-website content in the process. Plus, engagement sessions kick off one of your most important wedding-vendor relationships.

Engagement sessions are 1.5-2 hours long and include 2-3 outfit changes.

04 | timeline creation & review

I'm here to help! Planning a wedding is stressful enough without having to worry about creating a timeline. As part of the wedding photography experience with me, I offer my couples a complimentary, custom curated wedding day photography timeline. Prior to your big day, we will finalize the timeline and share it with the vendor team to ensure that your day runs smoothly.

I have worked with many vendors, so if you need recommendations, let me know.

05 | the wedding day

This is the part where you relax and enjoy the day. Trust your vendors, including myself, to do our jobs. We will work together as a team to make sure your day runs smoothly.

I will engage with you, your family and friends to capture your most precious, intimate moments together. I use a mix of both candid and styled photos to tell the complete story of your day.

“The moment I met Mandi I knew she would be the one to capture ALL the magic on my special day. Working with her has been a dream. We had several meetings leading up to my wedding day that made me feel my dreams would be captured and made a reality. Memories I will cherish for a lifetime. She gave great direction and heard any concerns I had. Photo was one aspect of planning a wedding I did not stress about at all because of Mandi. I can not wait to work with her in the future.”
