    The best photographer ever

    I’ll be writing a review on just about every platform for this incredible lady. Honestly if you hate feeling super comfortable, laughing your head off, making a new friend, having someone capture you and your day perfectly, AND having the most stunning photos ever then don’t book with Mary. If you love those things as much as I do … there is no one else to book with! It’s a no brainer she’s amazing! Hire Mary!

    Absolute delight and amazing photographer!!!

    Mary is an absolute delight and a highly talented photographer! Right from the very first interaction, her sweet, friendly and warm personality came right through! Her pictures are absolutely stunning and captured the raw, beautiful and natural emotions of our wedding day! Our wedding was only a few days ago and we already got the most amazing sneak peaks, and now, we're both smiling from ear to ear! Highly recommend her for your special day!

    September Elopement

    My husband and I decided to elope, and we wanted the right person there to capture our special day, Mary was just that and more. She is someone that if you don't know very well, or even at all, can make you feel so comfortable on and off camera
    .
    Our elopement was just my husband and I so it can be pretty "uneventful" as far as photo ops go. Mary had so many great ideas on where to shoot and how to capture exactly what we wanted. Her ability to make everything feel so effortless, fun and enjoyable is an incredible gift she has. She kept us laughing and made every moment an unforgettable one. Her dedication and creativity show in her photos and we will forever cherish that.

    We can't wait to book our next shoot! Thanks again for everything Mary!

    Captured the day perfectly.

    The moment we met Mary we knew she was the one we needed to hire to shoot our wedding! She made us feel so at ease. Mary is so kind, patient and kept us laughing all day. She truly made our wedding day that much more memorable. She has a real knack for getting amazing and meaningful candid shots that captured our day so perfectly. I love looking back on our photos and would book Mary again in a heart beat. Thank you so much for being such a special part of our day.

We feel its so important to work with a photographer that has a great personality and you can really click with and that's exactly what Mary was like for us! And not to mention the photos were AMAZING!! We had SO many favorites and it was so hard to pick one to print etc because every photo was so amazing and captured all the love and happiness that we felt!

    Outstanding Photographer

    Mary photographed both our engagement and wedding. She was wonderful to work with all the way through the process. She was very professional, accommodating and a pleasant addition to our day. She was able to drift naturally into just the right place at the right time again and again. She also followed up by providing us with our photos in a timely manner, and her work took our breath away. Her photos are incredible! Warmly recommend this talented photographer to anyone looking for just the right person to capture such treasured moments.

    Simply perfect!

    We could not have been happier with having Mary shoot our wedding. Even though we were only distant acquaintances, she was so much more than a photographer. She showed up with so much game & positivity and simultaneously made everyone feel perfectly comfortable getting their photo taken! She went above and beyond I’m every way - she seemed to always know where to be, managed my last minute requests with ease and left us with pictures we will cherish forever! You added more to our day than you know! xo Meg & Jer
