"She's so sweet and really put in the work to make sure she understands your vision, the family dynamics, the shots you absolutely want"

"Manali was AMAZING to work with! My husband is a little camera shy, but she was very easily able to make him feel at ease. She is a fun ball of energy who got everyone smiling and kept our portraits moving quickly and looking GREAT! She tells you exactly what you need to do for each photo, so you don't have to do any guess work. She's so sweet and really put in the work to make sure she understands your vision, the family dynamics, the shots you absolutely want to get, etc. And she got us our photos back VERY quickly"

-JULIE & DEEP

"The pictures are such a beautiful reminder of our day!"

"The pictures are absolutely gorgeous (I'm already having trouble narrowing down which ones I want to print for displaying) and are such a beautiful reminder of our day! We are thrilled there are so many, too - thank you so much!!

It was absolutely amazing and we really appreciated having you there to help us keep on schedule and have a lovely day. You were wonderful to work with!"
