Mandi recently underwent a rebranding of her website to reflect her new style of photography. Unfortunately that new style is made up of mostly stolen images that show the film style editing which she aspires to shoot but isn’t quite nailing yet (based on her actual images she’s taken which remain). This is a huge reason why I have this website, she’s selling herself based on beautiful images which she hasn’t taken.
One should also note that there are a ton of stock images she’s using as well on her Facebook and Instagram. I am not listing those images as there is no way for me to know if she’s purchased them legally or not but I still find it unethical.
She also may be in the process of rebranding to Element photography based on an Instagram.

What made me laugh is that not are all of the images watermarked with her logo (I couldn’t find any images on her website that didn’t have a source out on the internet) but that she even stole the buttons from some other photographer – including the “about us” with their photo.

She is currently deleting some of the images she’s being called out for. There are more than what is sourced below but I am too busy today to do it all. She habitually crops out watermarks and has used at least one stolen image for her header so this isn’t just “inspiration” for mini sessions or photo shoots (not that inspiration posts are ever ok – even with credit).
Her website is mostly her work with the WIX template images left in place so below is just Facebook sourced images.
