    Wow! The pictures of Bethany and Luke’s wedding just get better and better each time I look at them. You did a fabulous job of capturing their personalities and their love for one another. Each pictures is a beautiful portrait of their heartfelt love for family and friends and especially for the “incredible” couple that they are. Your artistry has preserved their wedding forever and always. Thank you.

    All of these breathtaking weddings are amazing! Mandi, my favorite thing about your photography is being able to capture special moments that not only show the depth and character of each person, but also the depth of their love for each other that they are celebrating. Bethany and Luke’s wedding images stand out because you were able to capture such a range of emotions, taking viewers through their special day. While all of these weddings are special, Bethany and Luke’s really stand out- your photos helped strangers know just how fun and in love they are!
