Introducing Chesapeake Charm Photography

Hello my dear clients & friends,


Welcome to the Chesapeake Charm Photography website!  As most of you know, I previously operated my business under the name “Mandi Thommen Photography.”  I have worked under that name for more than 4 years now, and you may be wondering why I’m going in a new direction! Well, as you’re probably aware, my name is not the easiest to pronounce or spell properly.  I’m also hoping that one day, it will change!  Also, In the past few years I have grown substantially as a photographer and really needed to update everything – meaning my entire brand.  In order to continue to grow as a photographer and a business owner, I felt these changes were necessary!


This new name reflects a few things about me and my work – I am a Maryland-based photographer who works all along the Chesapeake coastal area; from PA to VA.  As you will see, this new brand showcases my love for all things Chesapeake – southern charm meets coastal class – and I feel that most of my clientele fall into this category! I mainly photograph vibrant, seaside or charming, rustic affairs. You will find that although my website and Facebook page may have a new look, but my sunny, natural style of shooting remains the same.


Please be aware that while I have changed a few things about my business, my dedication to serving you in the highest professional manner has not changed. There are many new and exciting things to look forward to with this new brand, including an improved workflow for timelier delivery, new photographic equipment, new shipping materials, online gallery viewing/storage and MORE.


If you are a fan of my current Facebook page, when I change the name of my business on Facebook it may ask you to “accept” the change.  I ask that you please approve the change so that you can view my new page appropriately and and view more wonderful photos to come in 2015 and beyond!


Thank you all SO MUCH for your support and I sincerely look forward to working with you in the coming year!  If you have any questions, please email me at my new email address:
