Joaquin & Alison
The bottom line is that Mandy and Lindsay are amazing photographers, artists, artisans and professionals. They exceeded our expectations in every dimension before, during, and after the wedding. Out of the hundreds (thousands?) of decisions we made while planning our wedding, we feel that hiring Mandy and Lindsay as our photographers was by far the best one.
More than just high-quality images from the day, their photos captured the complex mixture of strong emotions that comes with any wedding: love, joy, tenderness, hope, wonder. The wedding and reception went by in a blur and, because we were in the middle of getting married, we weren’t able to spend as much time with all of our guests as we hoped. Thanks to Mandy’s and Lindsay’s work, we have a more complete and wonderful record of the event. When we looked at the photos they took (which were made available on time), it seemed like they managed to be everywhere all at once. Which is incredible because, aside from the posed pictures, we hardly noticed their presence at all during the wedding and reception. And yet, time after time, we asked each other, “Look at this one! How did they get that shot?!” as we scrolled through their photos.
One important note about what makes Mandy and Lindsay such a great team for a wedding is that, while working with us, they showed us what a strong relationship filled with respect and love for each other should look like. It was inspiring to us as we were getting ready to hit a major milestone in our journey as life partners to watch Mandy and Lindsay working together in such a positive and constructive way. They didn’t always agree with each other, but it was clear that they respected and valued each other and were always able to come up with a solution that worked for both of them and for us. Who better to work with at the start of a marriage?
PRO TIP: If time and budget allow, we super highly recommend scheduling an engagement photo shoot with Mandy and Lindsay as well. For us, it was an opportunity to get to know them as artists and as people and to become familiar with their style. It was also a huge morale boost. We started the session feeling the full weight of everything that still needed to get done for the wedding. Thanks to their experience and skill, we finished the session feeling happy and confident and as if everything was going to work out just fine. Which it did!
