Testimonials

“Pictures are worth a thousand words.” It’s true. And usually the one word that comes to mind after glancing at any picture I’ve ever had taken of me before is, “YIKES!” Let me introduce myself as the most, UNPHOTOGENIC PERSON EVER! But, you would have never known by looking at the photos Mandy captured of me and my family. Working with Mandy was the most incredible photography experience we have ever had! My husband and I have almost 2 year old twin boys, and hectic doesn’t even begin to describe our days. Almost dreading the shoot anticipating tantrums from the twins, meltdowns and tears from everyone (or just me!), I was amazed at how comfortable Mandy made each of us feel, and how perfectly  adaptable she is. She entertained our boys, had patience, and brought so much talent and a sense of familiarity to the experience. Besides having the most relaxed yet directed shoot ever, our pictures are STUNNING! We are still in awe of how beautiful the images are. And are so grateful to have these incredible photos and memories to cherish. We will forever be clients of Mandy Chiappini Photography!”

“Mandy was the first professional photographer my family ever used and I know we will never go back to a department store for pictures ever again! She was very quick to respond to my never ending list of email questions and she was flexible enough to reschedule our shoot 3 times! She helped us select a perfect location ahead of time and was just as sweet as she could be through out the whole process! She is very reasonably priced and she made sure to explain all of our options with us thoroughly. I honestly don’t have enough nice things to say about Mandy. I will continue to have Mandy take our photos in the future and reccomend her to all of our friends and family!”

“Mandy is so full of life and joy, it’s no wonder that her photos capture exactly that.  She is such a fun and bubbly person!  During our shoot we laughed a lot and became great friends in just a matter of a few hours.  We also bonded over being so cold! But we got through it together (:  I loved how Mandy really paid attention to details like lighting, composition and everything that goes into creating wonderful photographs.  Her eye for detail is truly evident in the photos, and I simply adore how they turned out.  She’s awesome and I’m so happy to call her a friend.”

“What a fun experience! The first time I met Mandy, I felt like I had already known her for years. She has such an energetic personality and truly has a passion for photography. We went to the Botanical Gardens for my senior pictures and she new exactly how to set up a beautiful picture and I was beyond pleased with the outcome! When I get married and have children some day, I will definitely be giving her a call to do those photographs as well :)”

“When I came to Mandy with my photo session idea I was nervous she would think it was silly.  After 2 years of marriage I wasn’t quite done with my wedding dress and I wanted to get a few shots in the city with my dress and my rubber boots.  She encouraged the idea and I’m so glad I listened.  It was so much fun!
Mandy is a natural and has a beautiful style that is a mix between portrait and photojournalism.  I love the way she captures the moment.  I felt completely comfortable with her and whenever I would hesitate she was there to throw out directions or ideas.  Our session was a blast and she made me feel like a supermodel!  I didn’t feel rushed even when we were losing a bit of light.  Her confidence made me confident and the dying light photos turned out to be the best ones.  This girl knows her stuff! It’s clear in all her shots that photography is her passion and I am so happy she is willing to share her talent with us.”

“Extraordinary.  That is probably the best word to describe our amazing experience with Mandy.  It has taken me longer to write this testimonial than any other because I never felt like my words were actually giving her photography skills enough credit.  Her gift is not something that is learned, it was sent from the heavens.  We felt completely comfortable in one of the busiest/touristy places in all of Washington because of Mandy’s charismatic and friendly personality.  Shooting in Pikes Place was a dream for me and seeing her work afterwards far exceeded any expectations… even those that come in dream form.   Thank you from the bottom of my heart!! You’re truly a sweetheart and I am so thankful to have had the pleasure of being in front of your camera lens.  We can’t wait to be there again.”
-The Hardesty’s

“We feel so lucky to have met Mandy and used her services!  Her pictures speak for themseves, absolutely beautiful!  What we value more is her sweet spirit.  When working with her, you feel more like a friend than a client and it’s so refreshing.  I love that she is a mother herself, so I can trust that while she is capturing my little girl, she is thinking “how would I want my baby to be photographed”.  We couldn’t be happier with the pictures that we have and are looking forward to doing buisness with her for years to come.  We are so thankful that her gift has become our treasure in lasting memories of our daughter.”
-Courtney B.

“Where do I even begin? The whole experience was ah-mazing! Our ‘wacky down for whatever’ attitudes plus Mandy’s talent and eye for beauty-were a recipe for exactly what we could ever hope for in our engagement photos.The whole session was professional, friendly, relaxed and fun- Tim and I left, having not even seen the photos yet, knowing that she had captured the perfect version of who’us’ is.All I can say now is…we can’t wait for the wedding shoot!”
-The Rohr Family

“Mandy is an amazing photographer and person! I had so much fun taking my senior pictures with her. I had never taken proffessional pictures before so I was a little nervous and not quite sure what I was supposed to do. But once we got started it was so easy! She’s very good at making you feel comfortable and she has fun with it! She’s very down to earth and friendly so its easy to be yourself while taking pictures. I loved all my pictures and all the poses she had me do. During my session it started raining/hailing but she was quick to come up with an alternative. We ended up going to the Issaquah Library and it was so fun and unique, she is very creative with her photos. I also had to lay under a train which was something I never thought I would do but they turned out to be great photos! She defintley has an eye for photography and I’ll never use anyone else!”

“I have known Mandy for years, and am blessed to be able to call her a good friend! She has done photos for me twice; once for my husband and I at our wedding reception, and the second time for our daughters four year pictures. She works great with kids, and was very flexible with our schedule, location and personal ideas.
She does an amazing job, and her work is breath taking. She gets the finished product to you very quickly and at competitive prices!
Whenever I hear of someone who needs photos done for any occasion, I automatically refer them to her!”
