Mandie absolutely killed it!!!

Words cannot describe how unbelievably talented Mandie is. My husband and I were SOOO unbelievably fortunate to have had her capture our amazing day. She truly exceeded our expectations and was such a pleasure to be around on the day of the wedding. Her attention to detail and ability to capture the most precious & sincere moments was remarkable. From the emotional exchange of our private vows to the lively dance floor that literally went until the wedding was over, every aspect was beautifully documented. Our photographers also commented on how easy it was to work with her - which I appreciated!! The final video not only showcased the most spectacular highlights but also conveyed the emotions of the day from start to finish. Her professionalism and creativity made our wedding memories truly unforgettable& we tear up every time we look back on our wedding day because of how amazing she did. We highly recommend her services to couples seeking a wedding videographer who seriously goes above and beyond to craft a cinematic masterpiece. 💛 THANK YOU Mandie for your dedication and hard work you put into our final films!!

The best investment for your wedding day!

Mandie was the videographer at my wedding in April 2023. Being in the wedding industry myself, it was very important to me that we had a videographer at our wedding, but I had a certain style and vision in my head of what I wanted - which was proving hard to find. Mandie checked all of the boxes, and more. She is extremely easy to work with and helps your wedding day run so smoothly. She is so kind, so organized, and makes you feel like a friend. We got our video preview back a few days after our wedding, and it was SO fun to relive our wedding day while we were on our honeymoon. Once we got our final video back, it brought us right back to the moment and how we were feeling on the wedding day, the tears, the joy, the laughter. I keep telling my husband that we need to get married again, just so we can have Mandie document our day again. I promise, you won't regret hiring Mandie and her team!

Everything We Wanted And So Much More!!

What I was looking for in a wedding photographer was someone that not only took beautiful pictures, but someone that could do both - photography and videography in one. After LOTS of research, I found Mandie’s website and it was like I found gold. After being brought to tears watching the highlight videos of other couples, I knew Mandie was the one I’d been looking for.

The Process: Mandie absolutely blew me away every step of the entire process. First, she takes time to get to know your story. She makes sure you are knowledgeable and prepared for your big day by sending a professional wedding guide that she created herself. This helped us understand all our options, which was so crucial in determining whether or not to have a first look. She literally thinks of EVERYTHING and is so knowledgeable. She was also so flexible in accommodating any changes we made due to the craziness of 2020.

The Day Of: Mandie is the person you want with you on your big day. From her many years of experience, she knows exactly what looks good and how to get those perfect shots. She makes you feel so comfortable and at ease. You can tell she truly loves what she does - being a witness to and capturing your love. She’s also the sweetest person ever.

The Proof: I knew our photos would turn out absolutely breathtaking, as Mandie had given us a sneak peak of our pics and video less than 2 days after the wedding. The pictures were exactly what I had wanted - they had that bright, airy, etherial feel that I’d so hoped for. But you guys, the highlight video, OMG!! If you are debating whether or not to do videography too, find something else to cut from your budget because this video will be the best thing from your wedding. Mandie has a true gift in capturing the most perfect moments from your wedding day and artistically composing them in a way that not only captures the day, but your entire love story (which she knows all about because she took the time to get to know you in the beginning). Our wedding video is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen and we will cherish it, and our amazing pictures, forever.

We will be forever grateful to Mandie for being everything we wanted and so much more.
