get to know me

Hey there! I'm Amanda "Mandie" Forbes, a Traverse City wedding photographer and videographer. I'm a hopeless romantic, an old soul, and a 3rd culture kid who's been obsessed with photography since I was about 7 years old. I currently live in gorgeous Northern Michigan with my 2 year old baby girl, Charlotte Eloise (Charlie for short!).

I absolutely love Northern Michigan, but I also love to travel (I've been traveling and living abroad since I was 5 years old! I've lived in 4 different countries and traveled to 10+ and have plans to add many, many more. It's in my blood!). Even though I love to travel, I'm also a total homebody. I love Mexican food, movies, and spending time with Charlie girl and our two golden retrievers, Sophie and Willow, be it cuddles and belly-scratches on the couch or puppy fun at the lake.

I'm a wedding photographer and videographer because I absolutely love, love stories and I believe that every couple has a story that's unique and worth preserving for years and generations to come. No matter how precious or spectacular a moment is, memories fade. For me, getting to step in and say "Not this one, this one stays." is what it's all about! 

I'm so excited to hear from you and I would love to chat! Click the button below to reach out and lets get started!
