Mandy Paris Photography captures precious moments you will reflect on and cherish forever. We pride ourselves on our ability to connect with our couples and clients quickly, building lasting relationships which allow us to see, really see you. That might sound a little cheesy but when there is clear communication and connection, the photographs become less about "candid" versus "posed", less about "dark and moody" versus "bright and airy", and all about truth, honesty, intimacy, and vulnerability.
I (Mandy Paris) started out shooting creative, editorial-style portraits incorporating studio lighting and interesting backdrops. Because of my background as a speech kid, speech coach, catering coordinator, AND public speaking instructor, I am super good at organizing and managing groups of people and their competing emotions & interests-- so I learned quickly that weddings were also space in which I thrived. Because of my ability to connect and truly see the people I'm photographing, my work shows a lot of personality and a range of emotions.
In 2022, my husband of 7 years (Brandon McCasland) joined me as he begins learning videography!
(More on him soon.)
We are based out of Cedar Falls, Iowa and regularly travel for weddings. We also have a home-based studio coming together soon.
Travel fees typically apply for locations more than an hour from Cedar Falls.

She was so friendly, fun, and brought really good energy to what was already an amazing day. We can’t gush enough about how much we absolutely love the photos that we got from our wedding day. The style of Mandy’s photography is so natural and really captures the essence of the moment. It was certainly a day to remember and Mandy made sure that we could cherish every moment, even afterwards.
Mandy clearly cared a lot about us.
"We had such a great experience!
First of all the photos are excellent & second you can tell how relaxed we are in them because of how Mandy interacted with us the whole time. Very easy to work with. If you’re looking for a photographer who will help you get the best photos all while being super fun and laid back, look no further!
