Feature Me Friday | Mandi Mitchell Photography

Feature Me Friday
Starting on Fridays, I will be doing a new blog series called Feature Me Friday. It will not necessarily be every Friday, but will be on Fridays and feature various vendors I have worked with in the past. I will be doing a fun Q&A with them, sharing pictures of their work I have taken, and pictures of them so that you can see who they are.
I figured I can’t really do a Feature Me Friday without at least sharing the first one featuring me! While technically I’m not one of the vendors I work with, I wanted to give you a chance to see how I will structure my new series! Thanks so much for joining with me. I cannot wait to share other vendors with you! These people in the industry are simply amazing! I loved working with them!
1) What is your name and what is the name of your business?
Mandi Mitchell- Mandi Mitchell Photography
2) What service does your business provide? 
I am a wedding photographer. I also shoot pictures for high school seniors and families.
3) How many years have you been in business? 
This is my 8th year in business.
4) What got you into the wedding business? 
Taking pictures had always been something I had enjoyed, and people had always told me that I had a good eye for photography. So in 2008 when my best friend got engaged, I asked her if they would be interested in letting me take free engagement pictures to try out if I liked it. Well… the rest is history! I LOVED it! I ordered a better DSLR and began doing everything I could to learn my camera.
5) Who in the wedding industry inspires you? 
Katelyn James! She is simply amazing! I love following her blog. Her work inspires me daily to be a better photographer. I am so blessed to have been able to attend one of her workshops last December. I cannot wait to see her again next month at the Pursuit Conference.
6) What is your favorite thing about a wedding day? 
By far when my couples do a First Look. I LOVE capturing those sweet and intimate moments. The reaction of the bride when she is giddy and excited to see her groom; the reaction of the groom tearing up when he is so overwhelmed with love for his bride. I love, love, love First Look reactions!!
7) If you weren’t working in the wedding industry, what would you be doing? 
Well, I was a school teacher before I became a photographer, so I could definitely see myself going back to that one day once Levi is in school. BUT if I weren’t doing either of those, I could see myself enjoying graphic designing. I guess it’s sort of similar to what I  do already. I would just have to get REALLY good at Photoshop!
