About

About Mandie Roberts; photographer.

SERVING COLORADO, NEW ENGLAND & THE UNITED KINGDOM

emsea-197.jpg

First of all, I am a mother to three energetic kids and a wife to a bearded British dude. I grew up on the East Bay of Rhode Island and lived my childhood pretending I was Anne of Green Gables. I love the thrill of antique shops, a perfect pour of Guinness and putting the kettle on for a cuppa on a chilly day. Colin Firth is my second husband, he just doesn't know it yet. I am a Vegetarian for the planet and for the lambs and a lover of Jane Austen and Thomas Hardy novels. If I wasn't a photographer, I would have been a chef or a novelist. You have found your old lady best friend.

As your photographer...

I bring my perspective of the world into your photos. I am a hopeless romantic and love emotion. As a published photographer with twelve years of experience (digital and analogue film), I am truly comfortable in my career. I love endlessly laughing with my clients and being honest with them if I think a pose doesn't work in their favor. My ultimate goal is to make your session tell a story for those who were not there to live it and to leave you loving yourself in return.

While 35mm film is my favorite format, I do always shoot alongside two digital bodies as well. There is something magical in waiting for those film scans to come through; it's a beautiful process. I believe in simplicity, creativity, belly laughs and keeping it old school. 

Feel free to browse my print shop, to purchase my favorite travel photos for your home or office!

"Mandie was a dream come true for my husband and I to have our wedding photos done in the Garden of the Gods!! We had our festivities derailed by the pandemic so we wanted some spectacular photos to help cheer us up, and Mandie came through in a major way. She even caught an incredible first look of me in my dress! 100/10 recommend. Also, we love that she supports all types of couples and celebrates all kinds of love!"

"We have worked with Mandie three times because we just love her so much! We have had photo sessions with other photographers, yet agreed Mandie’s work is our favorite! We moved abroad shortly after our second photo session together, but two years later, we were excited to hear she was traveling and would be 1.5 hours away from where we lived! We booked a session without any hesitation. She is the sweetest and so fun to be around! Great with kiddos, too- even if they’re not in the mood for pictures. Highly recommend her for any of your photo needs!"

"Mandie is the absolute best. She is so unbelievably talented and really helped me feel comfortable getting my picture taken (I never know what to do with my hands!). Our engagement photos and wedding photos are so beautiful, I will treasure them forever. I cannot recommend her enough, I would give her more than 5 stars if I could!"
