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.
Mary made us feel at ease, directing us while keeping the images natural... She documented what was most important.

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.
knowing we were anything but a natural in front of the camera. Our saving grace was Mary!

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.
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.
