Hello bestie! I'm Mandie

Find beauty in everything

It's so great to have you here! I call Pittsburgh my home, but I'm always on the lookout for new adventures to satisfy my wanderlust spirit. When I'm not capturing the beautiful moments of a wedding or a couple's photo session, you can find me exploring the great outdoors with my two furry companions, Bodhi and Maui. And of course, I love to wind down with a good book and a warm cup of coffee. So, let's get to know each other and make some amazing memories!"

See my work

I absolutely adore weddings! Every wedding I attend reminds me of why I fell in love with them in the first place. There's just something so magical about the stunning dresses, the stylish suits, the heartfelt vows, and the absolutely lit dance floor. It's an honor to be able to capture all of these beautiful moments as a wedding photographer.


Honestly, it's always been my dream to do this job. And you know what? With the help of a dear friend, that dream became a reality! I'm so grateful for their support and encouragement. Without them, I don't think I would have ever had the confidence to pursue my passion.


Now, I'm living my dream and capturing the most special moments in people's lives. It's an absolute joy to be able to create memories that will last a lifetime.

Next to photography, travel and hiking are my next passions. I'm a big planner so whenever the destination is set, you can bet I am on the computer the next day, looking for hiking trails and reading up on the local cuisine and hidden gems.


It's my next big goal to combine all three of my passions into offering adventure elopements as one of my packages. I'm moving closer and closer to this goal, starting with Moab this year (May 2024)!

Now if you are an animal lover like me, specifically a dog lover, then I know you want me to just get to the point and show you those adorable little pups already!


Bodhi and Maui are often the muses for my photos in the off-season and are my constant companions. They are part of my family and my heart. Because of this I understand the importance on including them in your photos. So if you are wondering "Can I bring my dog/cat/cow/chicken/horse/snake/all of the above".... the answer will always be a yes.

Mandie is the absolute best photographer we have ever worked with!

My husband and I have been through many photographers through our relationship and none of them have been as fantastic as Mandie! Not only is she amazing at what she does behind the lens but she also the sweetest soul and takes her time to get to know you and not just be your photographer but to be your friend too! We were SO lucky to have found her just a few months before our wedding and had the honor of having her be our wedding photographer! I will forever be choosing her to photograph any milestones in our family from now on! Nothing but positives to say about Mandie! Much much much love!

Mandie is an amazing photographer. She helped us stay organized and dealt with our crazy family and wedding party in a way only she could do. She connected with us like we were old friends the first time we met her. Our wedding was during Covid and she was flexible when we had to postpone our reception until the next year. She did our engagement session, our small backyard wedding in 2020, and our reception in 2021.

Not only will you get someone that will make you feel comfortable and bring out the chemistry in the photos, but she is an extremely talented photographer. The only bad part is that you will have too many amazing pictures to choose from! She truly cares and it shows in her work.

We are excited to work with her soon for our maternity shoot and will continue to come back to her time and time again!

As soon as I saw you, I knew you would be an adventure of a lifetime
