I’m Mary. I love to create thoughtful imagery to tell the story of your life. I started this journey into wedding and lifestyle photography in 2008. Now in my seventh year of business, I have documented 135 weddings in 3 countries and 12 states. I love what I do not only because I have the opportunity to create art daily, but because I have the chance to meet you. I’m serious – relationships are the best part of this job – building them and being invited to capture them is what I love.
I approach each shoot with the same intent : to capture candid and fine art images to tell the story of your life. To do this I shoot with both film and digital cameras and believe investing in the tangible product will only enrich your storytelling in the future.
My story with photography began a long time ago, when I was inspired by my grandfather (a photographer in the Army who documented the Manhattan Project) to pick up a camera in the first place. It led to a fine art education with 7 years in the darkroom and through a long process of hard work, success, failure and growth… and what you will find here. I invite you to look around this site and see what it is that I enjoy documenting and read about what I’ve been doing. My life is not about doing it all or having more but living with passion, and honoring God with my time and talents. It’s also a life that is all about balance, as I am a mom of two (the second baby is arriving February 2015) and the wife to the most amazing man (and business partner) I know. It’s an adventure, and I would love to share it with you.
