The photos are utterly stunning!!!!!!!!!!!! You are fantastically talented!!!!! You captured the feelings of the day and the setting so perfectly!!!! Makes us feel like movie stars!!!!! As an amateur photographer who’s used to being on the other side of the lens, I have to say your working with us was awe inspiring, Mary. I was completely comfortable and confident. You worked hard and were thoughtful about capturing our special day. Thank YOU! Double dose of admiration at your finesse. Can’t wait to see the pictures!
“I cannot possibly say enough good things about Mary. She is a true artist and absolutely wonderful to work with. I was really worried about how our engagement and wedding would photograph. I am not a natural in front of the camera and can sometimes have panic attacks when being photographed. Mary put me totally at ease. By the end of the engagement session I was laughing and having a great time. The wedding was similarly wonderful. We only had 15 minutes for couples photos and it was grey and drizzly. Somehow she took the most beautiful photos of the whole wedding with terrible weather and light. If you love the look of a beautiful romantic vintage photo and you want to hire a true artist and professional, definitely hire Mary. You will have no regrets and hundreds of exquisite photos to remember that special day.”

Mary was an amazing photographer for our wedding, and I would recommend her to anyone! Photography was definitely a huge priority for our wedding, given it’s one of the few tangible things you’ll have after the day is over. I spent a long time looking, and met with a number of photographers in the area. At the same time, we were also on a budget, so while I was willing to spend a greater percentage of our overall budget on photography than most, we were still very mindful of cost. Mary was the perfect fit. She has a beautiful style, but at a price that’s very reasonable for this area. Not to mention, she’s so pleasant to work with and really puts you at ease. My fiance is not a huge fan of pictures, but has a great smile, and Mary got him to relax during our engagement photos and wedding day so that we walked away with so many great photos of us and our wedding party. She was also very flexible and changed the date of our engagement photos last minute when our original date predicted rain. I am so thrilled with all of our photos and will definitely book Mary again for future photo needs!

“We cannot say enough wonderful things about Mary. From our engagement photos to our wedding day, her service was impeccable and her talent is beyond reproach. Not to mention her turnaround time is amazing – we received our wedding photos just two weeks after our wedding! And there isn’t a bad photo among the bunch. She has an incredible eye for photography and an uncanny ability to capture the most precious moments as they happen. You will absolutely love having Mary capture your wedding day!

We absolutely loved working with Mary for our wedding! We chose her as our photographer because we loved her style – it’s real, and beautiful, and so much more interesting than the cookie-cutter wedding photography out there. We’re so glad we did – she was an absolute professional, she was flexible when our venue changed at the last minute (!!), which resulted in scheduling changes too. And she was so lovely and easy to work with. But as if that wasn’t enough, the pictures were GORGEOUS! She captured our wedding beautifully, and in a style that absolutely fit us. Mary is wonderful, and she has our highest recommendation.

“Our time with Mary was precious. She was so easy going and professional in the same time. She captured the best moment when I proposed to my fiancé in Italy and we are so happy with our photos. She’s a true artist. We can’t wait for her to photograph our wedding as well.”

“Mary did a fantastic job for our wedding this summer! The portrait photos were exceptionally well done – she really has an eye for framing and using the environment in her compositions. From our first communication she worked with us to get a sense of our personalities and what we hoped to capture. The engagement photo session was also a lot of fun and she captured some great moments. We’re both very happy with the way Mary captured our wedding. Great memories! She was an excellent communicator throughout the process. Really focused on details, even down to the charming packaging of the final USB. We are definitely recommending to Mary to our friends! ”

Oh, Mary, what an inspiring talent God has given you! We are absolutely thrilled with the photos, thank you! Love, love, love!!It’s amazing how you used the morning light and angles to produce such lovely photos. And you were successful in getting the candid moments, too. It will be hard to select favorites. I’ve been wanting a nice canvas to go over the fireplace mantle so I’m so happy I can finally have a piece of art that we can enjoy each time we walk through the door.
You exceeded our expectations and blessed us with memories of this season of life we will treasure forever. I know our kids will appreciate these photos in 20 years (so will we!). Thank you again for providing a joyful experience.

Mary is AMAZING! She was very flexible as to how to use the time allotted in the contract: instead of engagement photos, we had Mary take photos at the rehearsal dinner and reception we had the night before the wedding. These photos were such a hit that we have multiple friends and family using the photos she took for their Christmas cards.
I am not a photogenic person, and did not have a great idea as to what I wanted the day off, but Mary’s vision turned out to be better than anything I could have imagined. She took gorgeous photos at every stage–getting ready, at a park with my sisters, at the church, during the ceremony, portraits with my now-husband, and during the reception. She sent me the photos incredibly quickly, and they blew me away! It’s the perfect mix of classic poses my parents and family want to have, and quirky, impromptu shots that reflect who we are. Mary should charge way more than what I paid, the photos were worth twice what we paid!

‘Your photos are more than just pictures, they truly capture the moment, the feeling or the idea. Not just anyone can do that- you have a gift! You are an artist, Mary! – Cindy L.
Thank you for capturing the special moments of our wedding day. We cherish the memories your photos bring to life for us each time we see them. Your professionalism, artistic eye and lovely smile put us all at ease so we could simply enjoy the experience.
Cheers, Kim&Todd J.
“Thank you so much for helping me capture one of the best days of my life. We love our pictures!”- Haley W.
We had never had professional pictures taken of us and were nervous about how we would look, but you made us feel so comfortable and relaxed and the pictures came out more beautiful than we could ever have expected. Our families were in awe and so were we! We feel so lucky to have such beautiful images of ourselves while we’re young that we’ll be able to reminisce over when we’re old. We’re booking you for our wedding and all the births of our children after! Thank you again!

‘Mary did an amazing job with all three of our photo sessions. She shot our 5-year anniversary photos, and then a few months later our maternity pictures and our newborn session. She made each session special, uniquely tailored to us- shooting at our home, wherever we wanted. She had many wonderful suggestions from props to lighting and fashion. Most of all though, she made each session so comfortable. She absolutely loves what she does and her love shines through the camera lens with every photo she takes. Her passion for learning and evolving with each new client is what truly set her apart from other photographers in the business.’ – Lisa W.
