MANALI PHOTOGRAPHY

but besides all the
photography talk...

And I'll be there each step of the way helping it go smoothly & documenting all the moments, big and small, as it flies by! A job well done is having you relive your big day with your friends & family through your pictures from when you put on the perfect dress to when you exit together after the best day ever!

Your CELEBRATIONS SHOULD be remembered for years to come!

have something in common?

I love getting to know my couples well from our first cup of coffee together to keeping in touch after the wedding day! Here are a couple of things about me, let me know if we love the same things!

You’ll almost never find me without a cup of coffee by my side! My top 5 are Dolcezza, Cafein, Swing Coffee, Republik & Tivoli!

charlottesville, virginia

I'm a proud UVA Alum - WAHOOWA!! I fell in love with the Charlottesville area and go back as much as I possibly can for the coffee, killer views, and photographing weddings at nearby vineyards!

(boozy) brunch

The best of all meals! I'll take my Eggs Benedict with a side of bacon and either coffee or bubbly depending on what I'm feeling!

NEXT ⟶

dc and paris

I could never get sick of the classic D.C. architecture! It reminds me so much of Paris which will always have a special place in my heart! 

NEXT ⟶

driving stick

I learned how to drive on a stick shift car and still drive one to this day! It’s a good time.....until you have to back up an entire mountain. Real story, happened at a wedding!

NEXT ⟶

bold rock & rosé

The amount of Bold Rock and Rosé related messages I receive from friends is incredible! I absolutely LOVE both drinks and have Charlottesville to thank for the obsession!

NEXT ⟶

all things coastal

If it’s near the water, I’m there! My dream is to live in a beach house by the ocean one day. Nothing beats the salty air, warm sand & coastal vibes!

NEXT ⟶

fall and football

Fall is my absolutely favorite season with the gorgeous colors & all things cozy. I love spending Sunday afternoons, huddled around a TV cheering on the Redskins, win or lose!

NEXT ⟶

other bits and pieces...

Currently obsessing over: white cheddar popcorn, all things rose gold, dark chocolate, working with the windows open!
