Well, hello there!
Hi! I'm Mandy Ducote of Galerie D Photography, a classic and creative portrait, lifestyle and wedding photography experience. I live just outside of Dallas in Forney, Texas, with my handsome and hilarious hubby and the two most beautiful, angelic children you've ever laid eyes on. I mean... they're mine, so I get to say that, right? :) I live for laughter, good food, cooking, art, music, photography and deep talks about life with friends.
I have been honored to photograph over 150 weddings and thousands of portrait sessions across the southern states in my 8 years of business. My utmost desire is to provide a beautiful service to my clients wrapped up in one amazing experience so that they keep coming back... first as clients, then as friends. I live to photograph all the big moments in life... and all the little ones in between.
As an artist, I see beauty, light and emotion in everything. My favorite photographs are those that embody a world of emotion in one image, bringing a laugh to your belly, a smile to your lips, or a tear to your cheek. As a photographer, I get to capture those moments to tell a story without words. Tailoring each session to my individual clients' taste and style ensures that I tell THEIR story. While I have an identifiable style, I also want to give my clients photos that speak to who THEY are. So from one session to the next, you will find me on a golf course, at the zoo, in a newlywed's home, on the beach, or in a cathedral creating stunning, custom images for each client.
So what makes me a great photographer?
There are so many photographers out there. Why would you choose me?
