"Wedding planning can be a somewhat stressful time because you want the best - the perfect dress, bridal party, church, food, reception hall, cake, DJ and photographer. And honestly, for me, choosing a photographer was one of the more difficult tasks because I was set on finding a person who would capture not only the big moments but the little moments as well. I wanted a photographer who was able to take pictures that captured the emotions and soul of the people in them. I wanted someone who wouldn’t just focus on poses but would be able to see the candid moments unfolding. My mom and I literally searched what seemed like hundreds of photographer’s websites trying to find that person. When I came across Soul Exposure photography, I was immediately drawn in, not only by the pictures, but by Mandy’s explanation of what photography was to her – an art and a way of creating images that tell a story. It was like she had heard everything I wanted from a photographer, but really, that was just her style and her passion shining through.- Kaitlyn Schrader
Our experience with Mandy exceeded our expectations. She made us feel comfortable in our own skin at both our engagement shoot and at the wedding, and all of our pictures reflected that. Our pictures didn’t look posed; they just looked like us. And what I loved the most, is that she fit right in with our family and bridal party and brought out everyone’s true spirit that day. She was not only our photographer, she also became a friend.
The pictures that you will have from you wedding day are so important because they are some of the most precious memories. Choosing the right photographer is such an important part of that. Know that by having Mandy capture your moments, you are investing in a photographer who not only has passion, but she really does have an eye for the capturing the soul of those moments. "
"Mandy is an innovative and inspired photographer. She is great at creating a relaxed environment whereby making everyone feel at ease. She has a real eye for capturing those special moments and for crafting a beautiful and professional finished product. We couldn't be more pleased with her work. We definitely plan to have her be our go-to photographer for our family portrait needs! "- Connie Minowa
"We just received our photos and are ecstatic with the images. We love how you were able to capture the beauty and magic in every shot. We thank you for your professionalism and easy going, yet deliberate way of keeping us on track, securing the photos we previously discussed and desired in a natural sense. You were able capture the essence and beauty of nature, along with all of our loving memories that will surely never be forgotten thanks to your keen awareness of each precious moment. We will be recommending you to all our friends and loved ones for their photography needs.- Eric & Stacy Hoban
Thank you so much for your attention to detail and natural instincts. "
"We are THRILLED with the photos you took! They are fabulous and you are such a talented photographer. As an artist myself (I draw and paint), I know the value of talent. We are so very pleased with the results. After seeing all of the photos, I was lamenting the fact that we hadn't found you sooner so that we could have had professional newborn photos of Anabelle. Well, we'll certainly need to set up another shoot in the near future.- Holly Anderson
Thanks again! I really can't express how special these photos are to us! We will keep in touch. "
"We've had nothing short of great experiences working with Mandy Kellogg and Soul Exposure Photography. She worked great with our daughter, at both her 6 month shoot and 1 year shoot. She was able to capture great shots of Madi from every angle and we ended up with lots of pictures to choose from to give as gifts to our family and friends. We live in Monroe, WI and people always ask us where we got our daughter's pictures taken. When we tell them the place is over 2 hours away they often ask if Mandy is willing to travel to take pictures! Mandy has lots of creative ideas and her prices are exceptional for the amount of excellent pictures she takes. Her passion for photography shines through her work and is evident in every picture she takes. I highly recommend Mandy Kellogg and Soul Exposure Photography for your next session; you won't be disappointed! "- Andrea Smith and Family
"I just wanted you to know that Kaitlyn was beyond thrilled with you and Heather. She said she & Burke & all the wedding party LOVED you two :) You were obviously a huge part of her special day and it means more than you can know that she was that comfortable with you guys. She was grinning from ear to ear when she showed me the pics on facebook. You have a great eye for composition and we are can't wait to see the rest :)- Diane Rothmeyer
Thanks again, "
"We loved having Mandy do both our engagement and wedding pictures. She was incredibly easy to work with and even made my camera-shy husband comfortable! Mandy had great ideas and also took any ideas that we had into account, which made for a great collaboration. We never felt rushed through the sessions as she did not stop when time was up, but only when we were all satisfied. On our wedding day she was calm (which helped put me at ease!), unobtrusive, and organized. Mandy's work is a mix of both posed and candid shots and she really delivers on both ends. She captured everything from the emotional moment of putting on my wedding dress, down to the joy and excitement of our first dance. I love that when I look at our photos it takes me back to the beauty and emotion of our wedding day. I would whole-heartedly recommend Mandy to be your wedding photographer! "- Claire & Adam Hansen
