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!Sent on 23/09/2021

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!Sent on 08/10/2020

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.Sent on 03/03/2020

Amazing Wedding Photography!
Mary was such an incredible photographer and the best addition to our wedding. She was so much fun and made all of us feel so light and happy.

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!
