Meet Mandy Liz Photography: Specializing In Intimate Weddings In Nashville | Real Weddings

I'd like to introduce all of you to Mandy Liz Photography today! Mandy is a lifestyle + portrait photographer turned wedding photographer right here in Nashville. Her background in lifestyle photography really lends a hand to her style of wedding photography – she has that photojournalistic vibe going for her! Capturing real and genuine moments is what she's all about – and we even featured a styled shoot of hers at Riverwood Mansion a few weeks ago – so gorgeous! I'll leave the rest of the telling to Mandy, so enjoy her side of the story along with her beautiful photos as you keep scrolling down!


Tell us about your company + how long you've been in business.

Mandy: I am Mandy, the photographer behind Mandy Liz Photography, and I specialize in lifestyle and portrait photography. I've been in love with photography since high school and have played around with a camera for the past 6 years, but I've only officially been in business for the past 2 years.

How did you get started in weddings?

Mandy: Honestly, I kind of got thrown into weddings! I've had a few friends and clients that trusted me to capture their big day, and it made me realize how much I really do love capturing weddings.

What's the philosophy behind your company?

Mandy: I strive to capture fleeting moments and tell my client's story in a beautiful way. I direct my clients, but I try to not pose them too much because I love natural shots and moments. Lifestyle photography is my specialty, which means I am photographing life as it happens.

What are your strengths compared to others in your category?

Mandy: I think one of my strengths is being an introvert, which is ironic because I think a lot of people would think that is a weakness. As an introvert, I've always preferred to stand on the side and observe my surroundings, which is perfect for lifestyle photography. It helps me catch moments as they are about to happen, and I am able to capture unique and special interactions that could be easily missed by others.

What attracts brides to your business (+ describe that bride!)?

Mandy: At this time I think what attracts brides to work with me is the relationship that we cultivate. Between the phone calls, questionnaires, coffee meet ups, and engagement sessions, I think they become comfortable and feel like they know me well. I really try to connect with them, so they don't feel like they are just signing a contract and paying a company. My brides tends to have smaller, intimate weddings (elopements or between 25-75 guests).

Thanks so much for sharing all about your business, Mandy! You can check out more of Mandy Liz Photography's work here on her website and also be sure to follow her over on Instagram!
