My name is Mandi, and I’m the owner of Chesapeake Charm Photography!

I am the happiest girl in the world when I am by the water. Whether its boating down the Chesapeake, laying on the beach in the Gulf of Mexico, or dipping my toes in a mountainside lake, I just love and respect the calm yet powerful atmosphere that being by the water creates. Fragrant salty air and the sun sparkling on blue waters bring me peace & pure joy. My love for the coastal life carries through to my love of photographing couples…I believe that love between two people is not only strong and powerful like the open sea, but beautiful and serene like soft waves gently caressing the shore.

A session with Chesapeake Charm Photography is one that is truly special and unforgettable. Every person deserves to feel like a million bucks, and that is exactly what I strive for. I use my love of light & laughter to create warm, natural images that are sure to bring a smile to your face.  At the end of your experience, you’ll have wonderful photographs and an amazing memory to look back on.
