We absolutely loved Mandi & her husband Ethan! They did our wedding photography this spring and were absolutely fantastic. Mandi was extremely responsive to email and texts and helped us create a detailed plan for our special day to ensure that no shots were missed. We have a massive family and had a huge wedding party and she was great at corralling everyone for group photos. She even remembered names well and was not afraid to call people out when they were goofing off and not complying with the poses. We were shocked out how quickly she returned our photos to us after the wedding and how many details she'd captured. We could not recommend Mandi & Ethan more highly.
Where to even start! you book your wedding photographers hoping for beautiful snaps of the day, and you get that & so much more from Riley Portraits & Weddings! Mandi is beyond amazing and a personality to match! She went above and beyond from helping the groomsmen get ready to her fast turnaround with our wedding gallery! Every moment of working with her was stress free and so much fun! I can't imagine using any other photographer for future events! Mandi is #1 and even our guest's thought it!
I can't recommend Mandi enough! As a family we've gotten our photos taken every year and each time our children turn 1 and 8 years old. Mandi was BY FAR the best I've ever had the pleasure of working with. Right off she made us feel very comfortable. She makes you feel like you've been friends for years. Then she sent us the photos! They are flawless, and so bright! I love them! She even swapped faces in some to give us the perfect family photo but you'd never know it! She's amazing!
I spent hours shopping for the best photographer in Northern VA for my husband's Marine Corps retirement ceremony and I nailed it! Mandi knew how important this day was for us and was able to capture every moment from start to finish. My husband and I love every single picture in our album- our body positioning, hands, smiles, everything is so perfect. Thank you Mandi for the most beautiful pictures, you are teh best!
You guys, I can't even begin to describe how awesome working with Mandi is, but I'm going to give it my best. It was pleasant and so easy from the very beginning. She helped the actual shoot day by having wonderful resources for us to get prepared for the shoot we wanted. I was so impressed by how engaged and helpful with the kids she was and keeping them focused and happy to create beautiful memories for us to capture. She came prepared with everything she needed in case the weather proved challenging. She kept me posted on progress and the pictures I ended up with are just perfect. I am in love with each and everyone else presented us. She has a wonderful eye and great ideas. I cannot wait to work with her again!
