I shoot each year
as a photographer
shooting weddings professionally
I've traveled to
since I started filming weddings
I'm Mandie, a Traverse City photographer and videographer. I specialize in wedding photography and engagement photography as well as wedding videography in all of Michigan. I'm currently based out of Northern Michigan (I serve mainly Traverse City, Charlevoix, Petoskey, Grand Rapids & Kalamazoo), and I love to travel! I've been traveling and living abroad since I was 5 years old, it's in my blood! So I am absolutely available for U.S. & International destination weddings! I strive to provide romantic, timeless images and video that reflects the look and feel of your day! Your story is as important and unique as you are, and I 'd be honored to tell it!
The Process: Mandie absolutely blew me away every step of the entire process. First, she takes time to get to know your story...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.
Mandie did the photography for my wedding and I am beyond happy and grateful for her incredible talent! Not only did she take amazing and stunning pictures, but she also was so easy and fun to work with from the beginning to the end. She was so on top of everything; she kept in touch with me during my wedding planning process, she helped formulate my timeline for pictures and the day, and she effortlessly made sure to capture pictures of all the details - big and small! Mandie was so great to be around on my wedding day! She put me right at ease, made us laugh, captured our natural smiles, and brought the best out in me. I was so excited to receive our pictures back and I loved going through them all! She provides exceptional quality and a fantastic quantity of pictures as well! Our pictures are the most perfect way to relive our wedding day. They are so timeless and I would absolutely recommend Mandie and her services!
Mandie was more than amazing. Our wedding video was beyond perfect and I cry every time I watch it. She captured all the feelings and love from our special day. She is super accommodating and quick to respond to every email every time I had a question. Very sweet and friendly I feel like I’ve known her for forever. We would definitely recommend Mandie and her services.
I mean WOW!! Her photos definitely speak for themselves! Her photos are breathtaking! She was so organized and on her game. She provided plenty of information leading up to the day. She helped to lay out the timeline for the morning of. She was super fun and easy going. My husband and I were basically begging her and her second to stay and party with us because we were having so much fun with her!
When I first stumbled upon Mandie I honestly thought she was too good to be true. I am a very skeptical and picky person when it comes to picking a photographer, which I think is something that comes with the territory of also being a photographer. There are so many horror stories out there and she just seemed too perfect to be real; until I talked with her, began receiving her emails, and finally met her. She is amazing in every way and so very creative and talented! I knew that I loved the work I had seen from her, and by the time our session approached I was very confident that we were in good hands. She is so sweet, fun, and won’t make fun of you no matter how dorky you are! I highly recommend her, there isn’t a single image from our gallery I don’t like; I can’t wait to get home and download them all! I had a few photographers I was bouncing around in my head for capturing our elopement wedding in the future but Mandie is definitely in my top tier of photographers when the time comes to hire ours! I can’t recommend her enough!!
Amanda was an absolute pleasure to work with! She is very talented, and puts her heart and soul into her work. She traveled to St. Ignace for our wedding and captured everything beautifully! Aside from her amazing work, she is a great person with an amazing personality! Such a great experience!!!
Mandie is a true gem! She was incredibly flexible and accommodating when our large wedding was downsized AND rescheduled to our home on a different day due to COVID-19. She is incredibly professional and organized, but is also extremely warm and kind. I'm so glad she was able to capture our special day even if it did end up changing at the last minute! I would HIGHLY recommend Mandie to anyone that's looking for a photographer!
Amanda is AMAZING to work with! You can see her attention to detail and passion through her work! I am so glad I had the opportunity to have had my pictures taken by her! She had a bubbly personality which made it so fun and easy to work with her and if she sees something out of place she fixes it (without taking the rawness of the scene) to snag the perfect picture! I would highly recommend her!
Amanda is truly amazing, from the time she did our engagement photos until our wedding day. We couldn't have asked for anyone better then her. She's so professional but makes you feel so comfortable. She's so down to earth as a person I couldn't imagine having anyone else! She does such an amazing job! Highly highly recommend her! Thank you so much Amanda for shooting our special day! We are forever grateful!
Amanda's work is breath taking. I honestly can’t find the words to describe the photos she took of us. They’re perfect. She truly captured us. Not only how we look but our personalities too. Working with Amanda is a breeze. She made us both feel so comfortable in front of the camera. We can’t thank her enough.
I honestly looked around for Videographers for months. I even had an entire excel spreadsheet with every videographer that I inquired with that listed everything from what they offer, to pros and cons. I don't know why this was one of the hardest wedding decisions for me, but boy oh boy am I glad I found you. The second I found your website and inquired with you, I crumpled up my spread sheets and tossed them (literally).Your communication was so good and you truly care to get to know your clients so that you can capture their vision.. You were so quick to answer all of my questions, and throughout the year of planning and sending you way too many instagram messages, I truly felt like we became friends and I was so excited to have you be a part of our day. Fast forward to the day of and I was so comforted by your calmness. I absolutely loved your creativity and how you got as excited as I did when we saw cool places to video. Our sneak peak, our highlight reel, and our full video were more than I could have imagined and I am so thankful to have this beautiful masterpiece to look back on and remember all of the details of the big day. I will highly recommend you to anyone that I know.
Amanda was amazing and her work was incredible! We had to make some changes on our wedding day due to the weather so when Amanda arrived (early) she realized our plans had changed so got set up so quickly and jumped right in and still got video of us getting ready! She so easily adapted to the changes of our day and was the kindest person to be around! She got our sneak peek video out so fast (we were still on our honeymoon!) and the highlight shortly thereafter and it is my favorite keepsake from that day. She got everything on video that I wanted and so many of our guests had no idea that we even had a videographer present until we shared the sneak peek because she stayed in the background! Her work was incredible, her personality made everyone comfortable and I would highly recommend her!
