It's Your greatest adventure yet!


It's your most important day and you should feel like a rock star. Your day should be stress free and fun with you at the center of attention. And that's why I like to get to know my couples on a personal level so I can connect with them before and on their wedding day. It's my job to make you feel relaxed and comfortable, all while having fun and looking your best. If you're looking for someone to capture your day who is flexible, outgoing, and creative, I'm your girl. I'm there to take you on the adventure, but will also guide you along the way. When you look back on your wedding I am passionate about you being able to remember what a blast you had and to deliver creative and breathtaking images for you to remember it for a lifetime.



I'm so glad you're here! I would love to know more about you and help you have the greatest day ever! I'm incredibly lucky to tell life's best stories and use my background in the visual arts to help do so! Every day and wedding is unique, and I want to tell it with my creative eye while having a blast right by your side!

BEST WEDDING VENDOR EVER!!!! We used Mary for our Wedding, it was the best decision we ever made. She is meticulous, making sure every small detail is exactly the way you want. In speaking with Mary extensively throughout my planning process, I came to realize that she is the most sincere and down to earth person ever. She understood that we were not your typical couple, and didn't want all the "typical" pictures taken. And seeing examples of her work, it speaks for itself! She was able to take my vision of what kind of photographs I was thinking of doing, and even broke it down in a detailed timeline, to ensure all aspects of the day would transition smoothly, even down to when the lighting would be most conducive to our venue. In addition to her amazing talent, she has incredible customer service. Throughout the whole planning process her communication was almost instant and super accommodating. She was so fantastic at organizing all of the photos on our wedding day. They made all of the posed photos fun and different, and even had my German Shepherd "Tikki" looking adorable in the shots! She made everyone feel at ease, she knew everyone by their names, and even made jokes - nothing felt forced. I have been in several weddings over the years, and I have never worked with a photographer who blended so well with the bridal party…and then blended in at the reception. You didn’t even know she were there, but she seemed to be everywhere capturing special moments all evening. She even sent me some "sneak peek" shots the very next day, which were beyond breathtaking. Since then, we have gotten back our photographs, and they are all simply phenomenal! If you are looking for a photographer to capture any special event, you don’t need to look any further. Mary is THE BEST. You will love her just as we do.
