☆ ☆ ☆ Now booking Elopements & Weddings for 2022 & 2023 ☆ ☆ ☆

I am a wedding photographer for couples who don't care as much about tradition as designing a day that is truly in line with their values. I prefer to carve out my own path in life, and I'm here to give you the permission to do the same. We might be a good fit if you:

↠ Feel most at home in (or near) the mountains

↠ Value experiences over possessions

↠ Prefer candid, raw, emotional images over posed shots

↠ Down for an adventure (and not afraid of bad weather!)

↠ Might be just a little nerdy or artsy

↠ Tend to think outside the box and enjoy complexity

↠ Are looking for a photographer who can capture your unique connection

If this sounds like you, I'm here to help you plan a day that represents your unique story as a couple. Whether you want to collect your closest family and friends for a simple ceremony by a lake or one of the many beautiful venues in the Eastern Sierra, or you want to plan an epic all-day elopement adventure just the two of you, I would love to capture your day.

I am based in the Eastern Sierra, but am also available for world-wide travel. There's no commitment in reaching out. Click on one of the tabs to the left to read more or get in touch!

Read some kind words from my awesome clients...

Mandy was such a joy to work with!  She had so many creative ideas for how to organize the photo session in a way that let us just enjoy the experience. 

We had so much fun together and she really captured us authentically. Mandy’s photos will be a part of my life for many years to come!

Mandy created a space that allowed us to relax and feel less intimidated in a formal photoshoot. She is somehow able to integrate her own, creative way of seeing to reflect our own, authentic selves. She also has a keen eye for drawing out the natural surroundings in her photos and her love for physical places. We look forward to her capturing more of our personal moments in the future!

Meeting Mandy turned our mountain wedding dream into reality! What started as a crazy idea suddenly became possible when we learned that she could actually backpack with us and capture not only our ceremony at Evolution Lake but also our adventuresome trek across a 13,000 ft pass and some off-trail scrambling along the gorgeous Darwin Bench on our way to our location. Mandy captured all of the wonderful moments we experienced so perfectly and thus, allowed our families and friends that weren’t able to join us to relive the experience with us.

Book Your Date

Now is the fun part! I will send you a few location options in the areas you specified. We'll start planning activities, timelines, etc.

If we decide we're a good fit, we both sign the contract, and you pay the retainer fee to hold your date. As simple as that!

Fill out my Contact Form with a little info about yourself, the date of your event, and any other important info. I'll respond with my availability for a FREE, no-strings-attached, phone consultation.

These are anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour long. I love hearing a bit about you and the ideas you have for your wedding day or photo session. I'll suggest some initial brainstorming ideas. After our call I'll send a price and contract which you can look over on your own time, and decide if you're ready to go for it!
