Hello Friend! I'm so thrilled your here! 

I'm Mandy McQuade, professional wedding and portrait photographer based in the Charlotte, NC area. 

Originally from Ohio, I've been a photographer in the Charlotte area for 8 years, and studied film photography and fine art at OSU.

Big Fan Of: Italian Desserts, Disney World Blogs, White Washed Walls, Too Many Pillows, Thunderstorms, Mental Health, and Old Book Smell.

Not a Fan Of: Rudeness in Emails, All the Rain in the Carolinas in 2018/2019, and Fire Ants. Seriously. Hate. Fire Ants.

I am constantly chasing sunsets, seeking out those grand landscapes, and finding the light in peoples homes'. I'm a mother to three beautiful babies and a wife to a man who picks up my messes and orders me Thai.

We are both broken people, constantly being driven by our love of this little family, and being rebuilt and sustained by Jesus. 
Life isn't always going to be blissful but the memories you document in pictures will help carry you through rough times. 
Life is crazy… let’s remember it well!
