My name is Berty Mandagie, I am an adventurous commercial and wedding photographer based in the Pacific Northwest.
In my down time, I backpack, hike and spend time outdoors. I feel most alive outside, and this is why I focus on combining nature and photography in everything I create.
But what I would love most is to sit down and get to know you.
Let’s go out for a cup of coffee or craft beer. Let’s hear your story and find out what makes you feel alive. My passion is to capture you doing what you love, where you love, and with who you love.
I am so excited for the opportunity to capture you in your element. I truly believe that no adventure is too big or small, and I would be honored to be part of your story.
I immigrated to the US from Indonesia as a kid. I have always loved looking at old photographs and the feelings they evoke. Little did I know those photographs would spark that fire that still lives in me today!
I’ve photographed over 70 weddings and continually work with some of the biggest commercial brands in the world. It is such a rewarding experience and I look forwarding to hearing your vision.
Previous Clients Include: Alaska Airlines, Delta Airlines, Canada Goose, Red Wing Heritage Boots, B&H, Outside Magazine, Standard Process, and State Tourism Boards.
Share your story below and I will get back to you as soon as I can. Let’s make something beautiful.

DO YOU TRAVEL?
All the time! It’s one of my favorite things to do. I love traveling everywhere, especially places I’ve never been before. Every place is different and unique to its own, so please get in touch to get a custom quote for travel fees.
WHEN DO WE RECEIVE OUR IMAGES?
It approximately can take 4-6 weeks until you get your final images. For engagement, proposal, and anniversary session, it will take about 3-4 weeks from the day of the shoot. This is very dependent on how busy each month is.
HOW MANY IMAGES WILL I RECEIVE?
For weddings, you will get around 600-800 images and this really depends on the length of the day. For engagements, you will get around 90-110 images. Every image delivered will be edited with my style and will be in full high-resolution quality.
DO WE HAVE THE PRINTING RIGHTS TO OUR PHOTOS?
Yes! These are your photos and you will have personal rights to all of the final photos that are delivered to you. If you wish to use your photos commercially, please get in touch so we can talk about that in more detail.
CAN WE POST YOUR PHOTOS ONLINE?
Of course! As a matter of fact, I would love that. Though I do ask that you tag me or give me credit when posting the photos online.
SHOULD WE HIRE A SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER?
A second photographer is not necessary, but I do highly recommend a second shooter if you have the budget and/or if your wedding is over 300 guests. I have done lots of wedding by myself, so if you choose to not get a second photographer, don’t fret, all will be just fine.
DO YOU HAVE A BACKUP GEAR?
I always bring multiple cameras with multiple lenses when shooting a wedding. I always come prepared with enough gear just in case of an emergency.
DO YOU BACKUP YOUR IMAGES?
Yes, of course. Backing up images is the most important thing after shooting a wedding, engagement, proposal, anything… I have a three-location backup system at all times. I keep all images on the memory cards until they are fully delivered to you.
HOW DO WE BOOK YOU?
I require a signed contract and a non-refundable retainer of 40% of the total package to reserve your date. Dates cannot be held until these two things are received. I book on a first come first serve basis. The remaining balance is due on the day of your wedding.
WHAT TYPES OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?
Check, cash, and Xero Online payment (which I will send to you if you prefer.. it’s a bank-to-bank transfer, the fastest and most convenient payment).
