This Ocean City, New Jersey, Engagement session has me all a flutter. I mean how romantic is this… John and Lyndsey dancing on the very beach that she grew up on. A beach which happens to be just minutes away from the shoreline he visited his whole life through. And now the tides have allowed their stories to collide. It seems that all of creation is joining them in the crescendo of their excitement as they live in the final moments before they say “I DO.” I am so thankful to be a part of capturing this moment for them.

{From The Bride-to-Be}

John and I met about 5 years ago when I started working at the same company as him. Fast forward 2 years to June 2012 and a trip to Atlantic City with work friends. A little flirting and liquid courage lead to our first kiss and our first date followed a few days later. After 2 spectacular dates, I came up with a handful of ridiculous reason why it would never work, decided I wasn’t quite ready for all the amazingness John had to offer (what was I thinking??) and sadly blew him off. Its a good thing he’s patient! Months later at a Christmas party my then roommate convinced me I was crazy and that I needed to give him another chance. John claims he knew I was the one from our very first date and waited patiently until I was ready. December 29, 2012 was our “second first date” and we’ve been happily in love ever since. John and I compliment each other so perfectly that we both knew very early on the we were meant for each other. I was ready for an engagement a year into our relationship but in true John fashion he took his time and waited for the perfect moment to propose. On December 16, 2015 in front of my family John got down on one knee at 4000+ ft. elevation on top of a mountain and asked me to marry him. It was magical, perfect and everything I could have asked for. We are so excited for our upcoming wedding!

Manda is
A creative genius!


I met Manda when she photographed a wedding I was maid of honor in. I got to know her throughout the wedding planning process and spent lots of time with her on the day of that wedding. Her demeanor, positive energy, and absolutely stunning shots made her a natural choice for me to select when I got engaged. She was an absolute joy to be around when she photographed my wedding.

WOW all I can say is WOW!!! Hiring Manda as my wedding photographer was the absolute best decision I made for my wedding!!!

If you are looking for a photographer who will instantly make you (and your not photo-loving fiancĂ©) feel completely at ease, who has the kindest heart and who will make your wedding look like an absolute dream you want Manda!

Manda was an absolute dream to work with! Capturing natural images of the joy and emotion on our wedding day was very important to us...
Manda excels at just that. 

 After looking at Manda's work and hearing story after story from others about how talented she is, we knew we had to have her capture our wedding. . She has the incredible ability to capture loving faces at just the right time and at just the right angle. She is thoughtful, courteous, and appreciates the value of a couple's wedding day.

She is incredibly creative and it shows through her work. We highly (highly) recommend Manda!!!!
