Mandi Mitchell- Mandi Mitchell Photography
I am a wedding photographer. I also shoot pictures for high school seniors and families.
This is my 8th year in business.
Taking pictures had always been something I had enjoyed, and people had always told me that I had a good eye for photography. So in 2008 when my best friend got engaged, I asked her if they would be interested in letting me take free engagement pictures to try out if I liked it. Well… the rest is history! I LOVED it! I ordered a better DSLR and began doing everything I could to learn my camera.
Katelyn James! She is simply amazing! I love following her blog. Her work inspires me daily to be a better photographer. I am so blessed to have been able to attend one of her workshops last December. I cannot wait to see her again next month at the Pursuit Conference.
By far when my couples do a First Look. I LOVE capturing those sweet and intimate moments. The reaction of the bride when she is giddy and excited to see her groom; the reaction of the groom tearing up when he is so overwhelmed with love for his bride. I love, love, love First Look reactions!!
Well, I was a school teacher before I became a photographer, so I could definitely see myself going back to that one day once Levi is in school. BUT if I weren’t doing either of those, I could see myself enjoying graphic designing. I guess it’s sort of similar to what I do already. I would just have to get REALLY good at Photoshop!
