Hey! This is where I tell you who I am. My name is Mandolyn McConaha and I love making photos and videos, drinking steaming cups of dark coffee, hiking mountains, and hugging my two fur-babies. I’ve been making photos since 2005, filming stories since 2009, and have world traveling, nomadic tendencies since 2010, with currently no sign or interest of changing.
Think about your wedding day 20 years from now, you’ll want to look back and remember when your dad’s speech brought tears to your eyes, or that moment you realized your entire wedding party was going to lip sync to Taylor Swift. I tell the true story of your wedding day, not by just setting up stuffy posed portraits, but by documenting the real moments that happen. I specialize in documentary wedding and portrait photography and videography and work in central and upstate New York, Vermont, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Indiana. I also adore destination weddings and can be convinced to travel any where in the world to make beautiful photography (see some of my past travels).
Congratulations on your engagement, I’d love to chat with you about documenting your big day!
I spent a few years (OK like 7yrs) working in non profit leadership and I have a soft spot for organizations doing truly impactful work! But I find that these stories are rarely told.
I specialize in helping nonprofits and community-minded organizations communicate their mission to clients, potential funders/donors, partners and volunteers. I tell your story and your impact so that you can focus on what you do best: changing the world.
Whether it is telling the story of your organization’s mission and impact, filming weddings, a special day, I want to make things that strike at the soul of the viewer. If I’m not feeling an emotion at the end of something I’ve made, then I’m not happy with it.
So please, sit back and check out my recent work, invite me out for coffee or tacos, give me a call so we can chat about how we will collaborate to get your work and message out there!
