I am passionate about photography, mainly because we cannot rely on memory alone to hold onto the precious, fleeting moments life offers us.
I love seeing an image and how it can magically take me back in time. A picture is so much more than a thousand words, it is a sparked memory of a captured moment. I treasure so many images taken throughout my life, and as your photographer, it is my honor to create and deliver tangible reminders of your history for you to treasure throughout your lifetime.
I am a natural light, film hybrid wedding photographer serving Lake Tahoe, Reno, Northern Nevada, and Wine Country, as well as worldwide destination photography.
I believe in a relaxed, natural session, focusing on chemistry, relationships, and connections between the members of your session. I'm excited to tell your story, together.
Can't wait to meet you and hear more about your vision for your big day! To keep up with my recent work, follow me on Instagram - @mandyfordphotography
SINCE WE’LL BE SPENDING A TON OF TIME TOGETHER ON YOUR BIG DAY, I WANT YOU TO FEEL LIKE YOU REALLY KNOW ME! SO HERE ARE SOME BASICS:
I’m an adventurer at heart. There’s nothing more peaceful than hiking in the mountains or floating around the lake on my paddle board. I’m married to a wonderful military man, Christopher, who has served our country for 15 years! I couldn’t be more proud of him. We move- like a TON - which means each year my portfolio showcases more and more national, and international weddings from our latest home, and combinations of past places we've lived! We’re overly obsessed with our chocolate lab, Theodore, to the point that he has his own Instagram account! - Check it out for a laugh or two: @theoriginaltahoeted
