Hi there, I'm Manali! A wedding & portrait photographer & educator serving Charlottesville VA & DC. Click through for all my favorites from recent sessions, adventures and travels, as well as tips & tricks for clients! Grab a cup of coffee, relax, and feel free to connect with me elsewhere as well! Cheers to you!
Manali Photography is a wedding & couples' photography business based out of Charlottesville, VA. When she's not making couples laugh or teaching other photographers how to save time in their biz, you can find her at a vineyard with wine & cheese in hand toasting with friends & family!
I was so glad I got to photograph Leyla’s UVA grad portrait session! We had originally planned to shoot in early spring but had to cancel due to coronavirus. I was so happy when she reached out in June to see if we could still photographer her grad portraits. Unfortunately, she was one of MANY brides that had to completely change her plans due to the pandemic so we made sure to get a ton of pictures of her with her family to tide her over until they can have their wedding day!
Leyla graduated as a Systems Engineer (Go E-School!!) and is similar in that her hobbies outside of classes are super artistic! She loves poetry, dancing and reading! Her session was so fun and she wore heels true to what she described her style as “heels with everything!” She’ll be moving out of state when she gets married in September now so this is one of her last “hurrahs” to UVA, Virginia and her family! Thank you Leyla for letting me take your pictures among the pandemic craziness! I wish you the very best as you start the next chapter of your life!!
