You don't have to have experience taking pictures - we will guide you through the process so you are ready to feel comfortable being photographed and get the candid photos you love.
Over the past 14 years and 250+ weddings I have refined my process of creating images that resonate. I take my laid back personality and achiever spirit to change the way you are photographed and deliver natural, beautiful images. It's time to live your story and tell it later.
At the start of wedding planning, my husband and I each chose the one "ingredient" most important to each of us; mine was photography. I was particular about our memories being captured candidly and naturally.
At many points on our wedding day I didn't even realize she was there (because that's the point when capturing real moments, right?!) One of the best wedding investments we made.
knowing we were anything but a natural in front of the camera. Our saving grace was Mary!
My husband and I are anything but naturals in front of the camera and dreaded the idea of posing for uncomfortable photos taking up too much of the day.
Upon receiving them, we were blown away by the gorgeous portraits and all the little candid moments and details that she captured - these were the memories we really wanted to be able to look back on and are so grateful to have them in this way.
Mary made us feel at ease, directing us while keeping the images natural... She listened to our story + documented what was most important.
Our multi-day Indian wedding had so many moving parts, I needed a photographer I could trust to be flexible and keep up with the fast pace. Mary handled last-minutes schedule changes and all the chaos calmly and seamlessly.
Even 5 minutes of shooting produced the most amazing images - like the one of us here! I could not be happier with the way she photographed our story - in fact we already planned another shoot.
Mary provided steady direction when I wasn't sure what to do and created gorgeous images no matter the situation.
I never thought taking engagement photos before our wedding would be as helpful as it was. We arrived a bit unsure of how things would go, but was it amazing to see how Mary worked and we loved our pictures! They are completely different from our wedding day and we were prepared, knowing how it would feel to be photographed.
When the wedding day came, we completely trusted her - in fact 4 of our close friends and family booked her - and we keep recommending her because we know her style is classic, beautiful and candid.
four of our close family + friends booked mary - we've seen her three years in a row
