I’m a wife, dog mom, tattoo obsessed, wine drinker who just REALLY loves people. I like to think I’m funny, but in all reality, most of my “humor” is old vine references and quotes from cartoons.
I started taking photos when I was 9 years old and now i consider my right hand a camera. I cry at every wedding I photograph because I’m driven and inspired by emotion and the fact that each couple is so freaking unique & precious.
I’ve been told that I react to couples in love like a 5-year-old walking into a candy store. essentially, I’m gonna be hype.
My goal as your photographer isn’t to be a vendor, but to be your right-hand lady all day. I aim to create a space where you feel comfortable to be completely, unapologetically yourself. That way, whatever I capture is real, not planned or posed. I promise to take bomb ass photos for you to hang on your wall and show your grandkids one day. I promise to capture the feeling, not just the moment. Lastly, I promise to make you laugh either at me or with me the whole day.
"You’re making a mistake if you don’t hire Mary
I have no words to describe our experience with Mary. She is so easy to work with, she’s hilarious, she’s kind and encouraging. And her photos......speechless. My husband and I as well as our families and wedding party love everything about Mary. The best wedding decision I made was using Mary as our photographer. PICK HER you won’t regret it!!!! ❤️"

"HIRE HER - You won't regret it!
My husband and I just adore Mary! We had multiple issues trying to find a photographer for our destination wedding, then Mary came recommended by our event coordinator - and we couldn't be more happy that she did. We had the opportunity to meet her face to face in our hometown and instantly felt a connection. She's young (EAGER), professional, SO MUCH fun to work with, and an overall bada** at her trade. She made each part of our day fluid and easy, never feeling 'posed', and we have the photo's to prove it. There are so many beautiful candid shots, it's hard to choose our favorites. Quick turn around for the 655 photo's she snapped of the event - which was very important to us. Highly Highly Highly recommended Mary for your photography needs!"

"Personable, relaxed, wonderful!
Mary was absolutely amazing on our wedding day and leading up to it. I’m a big planner and can get stressed by details, but I wanted a wedding that accentuated the wonderful people in my life. At every step, Mary set my mind at rest and helped me remember the focus of my day. By the day of the wedding, it was like having a friend join my bridal party. She helped us stay on schedule, stay relaxed, and have a wonderful time. She even managed to get all our family photos (11 siblings and 17 nieces and nephews between me and my husband!) done before the wedding with joy and peace!!! On top of everything, her photos so beautifully and artistically capture my husband and I, and the day we had been hoping and planning for. They are breathtaking keepsakes we will cherish forever. We LOVE MARY!"

"You NEED Mary at your wedding!
Mary is truly the best! My husband John and I absolutely loved working with her (and her husband Joe!) for our engagement photos and wedding photos. She made us feel so comfortable and helped us every step of the way with planning! I emailed her a million times with questions and she always responded with the most helpful answers. Mary is so much fun! All of our wedding guests and all of our other vendors LOVED her! Most of all, every photo was gorgeous and natural-looking. Mary captured every little moment and it's been so special reliving our wedding through her photos. I couldn't pick a favorite if I tried! Mary is so professional and delivered our photos quickly after our wedding (along with some sneak peek photos the morning after!). I highly recommend Mary if you want an enjoyable, seamless and stress-free day, and of course BEAUTIFUL photos!!"
