I’m Mandy, a natural-light photographer who loves to photograph love. I’ve been taking photos since 2009 when I switched my major (for, like, the 15th time) to photography in college. To be honest, I didn’t know what I wanted to do when I started college in 2005. I knew I wanted to do something creative and I constantly switched from something in the art field to something else then back to art. Finally, my mom told me to “just pick something to get a Bachelor’s Degree in” so I decided on photography. What I didn't know then was that photography would become my biggest passion! I honestly cannot put into words how much joy photographing a family or a wedding brings me. It is so beautiful to watch two people who love each other tie the knot. On top of that, getting to be the one person who gets to capture it all with her camera!
I couldn’t possibly fit everything about who I am into a few paragraphs so I’ll just tell you the most important parts of me and if you’d like to learn more, you’re welcome to ask.
I am very compassionate and have a huge heart for both animals and humans. I am a follower of God and believe that without His grace and mercy I would not be where I am today. I am very family-oriented and talk to my mom every day, my puppy is my pride and joy, and I have THE most amazing husband in the entire universe. We have been married since 2013 and still make each other laugh every single day. I am blessed to have the support and love of my amazing family and friends.
I am addicted to cupcakes, snow cones, Starbucks, and pizza. I literally could live off these things alone. When I’m not taking photos, you can find me snuggling on the couch with my hubby, Josh, binge-watching The Office or Parks and Rec reruns or playing Call of Duty. My favorite movie has been, and always will be, Beauty and the Beast. I love it so much that my wedding was Beauty and the Beast themed. I enjoy singing and even tried out for American Idol when the bus tour came to Little Rock in 2013. I like to use smiley faces and exclamation marks A LOT! But, I'm just a happy/excitable person! :)
A few of my core values are punctuality, honesty, and reliability. I work hard to achieve these things, not only in my business, but also in my personal life. I am also a firm believer in keeping a positive and happy vibe and feel that if you can maintain these two things, amazing things will happen.
My hope is that my passion for photography and love shines through in my work. This is why I always strive to stay optimistic and helpful when I work with my clients. Whether you need help getting your timeline sorted out for your big day, getting your dress bustled in the back, or putting the finishing touches on your hair or make-up, I will be there. I want to be your photographer but I also want to be your friend.
