I specialize in capturing vibrant, joyful images that preserve the wedding day memories for generations to come

I'm Manali

THE HEART BEHIND THE MP EXPERIENCE!

Consider me like an extra bridesmaid that helps make your day special & memorable.

I'm your eyes on the day to capture the moments you see & even the ones you don't...

Like when your flower girl makes a cute face during your ceremony, your mom sheds a tear during your first dance & your grandma has the biggest smile on her face out on the dance floor.

I'll be there each step of the way... making your photography process simple & streamlined allowing you to soak it in and celebrate with your loved ones!

So you can enjoy each moment and have "beautiful, airy, and loving photos that capture your day perfectly" to tell the tale long after you say "I do"

A job well done is allowing you to share your beautiful images with friends & families and have them sprinkled throughout your new home.

Images that make it beyond your FB Profile Picture & physically into your home.

To your living room gallery wall, prints around your kitchen & bedrooms, the second mini gallery wall in your hallway... and of course, your legacy wedding day album front and center on your coffee table. 

I want you to be able to relive your big day through your images & remember it like it was yesterday... every day, every week, every month & for every anniversary!

Your wedding day story deserves to be preserved for generations to come!

Hi friend!

I know just how challenging it can be narrowing down all those precious memories for your album. If you choose to add a legacy album, I streamline the album design process by sending you a mockup design with about 200 images that tell the story of your day. 

You're able to make revisions to the mockup before your album is printed & shipped straight to your home! All my albums are high quality and designed to be tailored to each couple. You'll get your album just a few short months after your wedding day! You'll be able to share the memories of your special day with friends and family for years to come.

You'll get to hold your wedding images in you first family heirloom, your legacy wedding album

Manali did an amazing job with our wedding photos! She always added a personal touch, is engaging and warm, and her photos turned out so lovely and emotional! She is a true Hoo (Wahoowa!!!) and a wonderful talent. I was so happy to have her work with us on our wedding day and strongly recommend her to any couple who wants beautiful, airy, and loving photos that capture your day perfectly :)

You were really great at prompting us on what to do and how to do it. We're not really photogenic and this was super helpful! We had more fun than we thought we were going to! She's just the best! [She's] Fun. Helpful. Patient. Your photos are so bright and full of light. [This was] exactly what we wanted for our wedding photos. You were able to capture us and all of the natural beauty surrounding us perfectly!

Manali did such a great job (as we expected) capturing our wedding and engagement pictures! We knew from her previous work that her photography was amazing but we were blown away when she was able to edit and send us finalized pictures so quickly. Everyone who sees our pictures comments on the quality and the little details that make them so great. I can’t thank Manali and her second photographer enough for being a part of our big day! All the guests really enjoyed her personality and her ability to capture the best moments of the day without getting in the way.

"We were blown away!"

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. 

"I would work with her again in a heartbeat!"
