Documenting the moments in between

No bride is the same. No wedding is the same. The best way to capture your unique and perfect day is with a photographer who understands you and what is important to you. We focus on the details, the quiet moments, the things you might not even notice - to present to you a complete picture of your day that is authentic and true.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

your WEDDING is THE BEGINNING OF YOUR LIFE TOGETHER

We work to honor the importance of your day - down to the smallest detail. We get to know you, your fiance, your family, and hopefully by the end of your wedding feel a bit like family ourselves.

Wedding days can be hectic and stressful, but we've been there and we know how to create a smooth experience from beginning to end - so you don't have to stress and you can spend your day actually enjoying it.

Irena was amazing! We had so much fun working with her. I honestly don't believe that any other photographer would have captured the shots she did-- I still can't believe how gorgeous some of the photos are. Most importantly for me, I didn't have to worry about a THING on my wedding day. Irena knew exactly how to capture the types of photos we wanted. Even though she had created a very detailed timeline for the day, she totally adapted on the fly to anything and everything and really let us enjoy our day. I can't recommend Irena enough-- if you want a fantastic photographer who will work her tail off to ensure that you have a perfect day (and who also happens to be a genuinely delightful person), hire Irena Mandel!

Patrick and I stumbled upon Irena on Thumbtack after several photographers recommended by friends and family were already booked (we are late planners), and I have to say it was the best accident that could have happened. After reviewing all of the photographers in our price-range, Irena's portfolio stood out well above the rest. I have a college degree in photography, so I knew exactly what I wanted. Her use of soft, natural lighting, composure and candid shots were so superior.  She has an uncanny ability to understand people and was able to help Patrick and I relax and have fun during our engagement photo shoot together. This really helped us nail down natural and beautiful photos during our wedding day. I truly do not have words for how amazing Irena is.

We could not be happier with our experience with Irena. She is one of the nicest people I have ever met and working with her was a lot of fun. We did not know what to expects but had such a good time doing the engagement shoot we didn't want it to end. The pictures from our wedding are amazing and she made it fun and stress free the entire time. Irena has truely become a friend and looking back we could not picture someone else shooting our wedding.
