ABOUT ONLY1SHOT PHOTOGRAPHY

Looking for an affordable special event and wedding photographer near you?  Only1Shot Photography is a premier special event and wedding photography vendor that serves clients throughout Maryland, Virginia, and Washington D.C.

Mandi Shepard, a native of Maryland, is the founder and owner of Only1Shot Photography.  From a very young age, Mandi knew that she wanted to capture those special moments in life for other people through the eyes of a camera lens.  Mandi began capturing memories on film at the age of sixteen when she worked as a “second shooter” at a wedding.  Much like how the couple she photographed fell in love with each other, Mandi fell in love with wedding photography.  

Baltimore Wedding Photographer Mandi Shepard

Mandi most relates her photographic style to a healthy blend of contemporaryphoto journalism, and natural light.  Please view Mandi’s portfolio to get a glimpse at some of her work as a special event and wedding photographer.  

Mandi is a 2021 recipient of the Wedding Wire Couples’ Choice Awards and some of her work has been featured on WBAL-TV in Baltimore.

When not taking photographs, Mandi enjoys taking care of her son and volunteering her photography services to local animal shelters by taking heartwarming pictures of animals that are available for adoption.
