Mandy Hank Photography

I’d like to introduce Mandy, from Mandy Hank Photography. She was the photographer for Krista and Tim’s Wedding. She was very sweet and a pleasure to work with. I’m a big fan of her work, and she was kind enough to share some information about herself and how she got started in this business….
“I started my photography business after the birth of my first child
and I couldn’t put down the camera. My husband was in a wedding and
the night before at the rehearsal dinner that their photographer
wasn’t going to show up so they asked me. I was so nervous and went
out there and did the best I could. I shook the entire wedding. I was
so scared. But I did pretty good and they loved the photos so I built
up my business after that.
My favorite part of weddings I think has to be getting to know the
couple. I love meeting their family and friends. I love when their
family gives toasts and speaks about them and wishes them well. It is
such a wonderful time where the whole family comes together, everyone
is so excited for this couple to start their life together. I love
the reception as well. I love how once the toasts, dinner and cake is
done everyone lets loose. After months of planning and stressing they
are able to relax, have fun and create memories. I’m a part of that
and feel so honored.
Krista and Tim’s wedding was really special to me. Their family was
really welcoming to myself and my assistant. I love the details that
Krista and Tim had at their wedding. Their quirky cake, their table
settings, the groom’s cake, everything. They both were really laid
back and willing to have fun! That is always a photographers dream.”
Thank you Mandy for sharing your story with us!
