So to make a long story, short. I actually photographed my first wedding by accident. I had been doing family photography for a while and was wanting to learn more about the wedding industry so I asked one of my friends if I could come get some experience on their wedding day. They had already hired a photographer, but cleared it with them that I come and just to see what wedding photography was all about. The wedding day came and I went. I was getting some portraits of the bride getting ready and she gets a text.. it was from the photographer. She wasn't coming. The bride looked over at me and said "Can you do this? Can you photograph our wedding?" Terrified, I answered "Yes, no big deal!" I was freaking out inside because I wanted this day to be perfect for them. Little did I know that later I would leave that wedding feeling so fulfilled and happy. I knew from that moment that this was what I was supposed to be doing with my life. And that was the beginning.
Your wedding day is an experience from beginning to end and your photography is a huge part of that experience..... shouldn’t it be fun? I think so! My goal is to not only capture memories for my clients, it’s to create an experience that they will never forget.
No two love stories are the same. Everyone has a unique story of how they met, how they fell in love and how they got to where they are today. I love trying to capture your story of your wedding day in a way that is complimentary to you and your story.
Our goal as wedding photographers is to make this one aspect of the planning process simple. Photography is more than just images, it’s a real part of your day. Not only do you deserve beautiful images, you also deserve an amazing photographic experience. When our couples feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera, that results in genuine, joyful images!
After all the years of photographing weddings is that the biggest secret to getting amazing images in having relationships with our clients. We absolutely love getting to know our clients and walking with them through this roller coaster called "wedding planning". What we've found is that the more comfortable our clients are with us, the more genuine those smiles are in the images. Thats why relationships with our couples is our passion.
All of our collections include at least 6 hours of wedding coverage, complimentary engagement session, all of the edited images, and online gallery. We also have various wedding collections that include a second photographer and additional hours of coverage. Our couples invest an average of $3500-$4000 on the Mandee Matthews team.

"Mandee is amazing! She is so kind and ensures you have a great experience. She makes you feel comfortable when taking photos & you have a great time doing it. Her photos are beautiful. I am so grateful she photographed our engagement and wedding photos!"
"Mandee made my wedding! She was sure to capture every moment and the pictures were absolutely beautiful! Her communication was great from the time I booked her and she created a timeline for us to follow on my wedding day, which was very helpful. If you’re looking for a photographer who you can trust, Mandee Matthews is THE one."
We could not have picked a better photographer for our wedding! Mandee is so sweet, such a fun personality, and makes you feel so comfortable in a situation where nerves and anxiety are high. Our pictures turned out beautiful - so bright and crisp - the perfect style for us.
Lets talk about this whole “First Look” epidemic. The first thing that I will say about them is that they are AMAZING but not everyone knows how amazing they are because
One of the most common questions I get at wedding consults is "Do I really need a second photographer for my wedding?" Im not going to answer that question with a simple yes or no...
