Hi, I'm Mieke (mee-ka) Strand, and I'm a photographer (and recovering architect) based in the Bay Area.
I photograph weddings in a fine art and documentary style, capturing authentic emotional moments as they happen.
I love photographing weddings because they are so emotionally rich. Every moment throughout your wedding day has the potential to become a fantastic photograph, and it gives me a joy and a thrill to create such images again and again.
The name Mad & Moonly comes from a poem I love by e.e. cummings, in which he says that love "is most mad and moonly". Those words have a magical ring to them that inspires me, and I bring that inspiration to my wedding photography.
