Hey There!

Hi there, I'm Mandi, the creative force behind Riley Portraits & Weddings. I'm not just the photographer; I'm the heart and soul that goes into each and every image. My journey with photography began roughly seven years ago, right when I was expecting our first child. As I embarked on the incredible journey of motherhood, I discovered my passion for capturing life's fleeting moments and intricate details through the lens of a camera.

Fast forward a couple of years, and my little one had grown into a spirited two-year-old, with a baby sister on the way. It was a wake-up call to how quickly time slips through our fingers. Fortunately, I had honed my skills to create high-quality images that held our most cherished memories.

I hail from the charming town of Pleasant Grove, Utah, and I married my high school sweetheart when I was just 18 years old. Since that day, we've traversed the country, calling places like Utah, Florida, Texas, and now Virginia our home. Growing up alongside my partner in life, we've built a beautiful family together, and I'm grateful to be able to stay at home to raise them.

I'm a bit of a social butterfly; I thrive on conversation and meeting new people. My energy and outgoing nature often lead to impromptu water fights, dancing in the rain, creating delightful messes, and spontaneous kitchen dance parties with my kids. I believe in getting to know you, your story, and your reasons for being here. I genuinely care about others, and I'll go the extra mile for a stranger in need.

My life revolves around two central passions: spending quality time with my family and capturing precious moments for yours. From family sessions to weddings, newborns, studio portraits, and events, I'm here to immortalize those special moments for you. I'm committed to delivering exceptional quality images at prices that won't break the bank.

I absolutely adore what I do, and I'm eagerly looking forward to getting to know you and creating beautiful memories together!
