I am a hopeless romantic... I believe in soul mates... I believe in happily ever after...

My heart rejoices at the true love a couple shares and I want to capture

that authentic love and those real moments! 

 

I have a big heart to serve and help those around me! I am a storyteller; my goal for photographing your wedding is to produce images that tell the story of your day from beginning to end. It’s your story and I want to give you an opportunity to live your day over and over again. Couples spend years and many thousands of dollars planning their wedding and it goes by in 12 hours like any other day. The only one who can make that day last forever is your photographer.  I may be biased but I strongly believe that the photographer you choose to shoot your wedding is the most important decision you have to make in the planning process. The photographs are what will last and tell your story for generations to come and your photographer is a huge part in how that story will be told.

 

My approach is to be as hands on as you want me to be. While I am not a wedding planner I always make myself available to my bride and grooms to help with recommendations for many other vendors. I’ve photographed weddings since 2000 and I am always available to give you advice or my opinion. The Timeline is very important to me and I like to help my couples plan out the perfect timeline that will help their wedding run smoothly and give me the time I need to create the images you are looking for. Aside from providing you with amazing wedding photography, one of my top goals is to make this whole wedding process more enjoyable and less stressful!

 

Combined with our clean, crisp post production to outlast all fads, your wedding pictures will collectively come together to complete the story of your wedding day in a way that will look amazing on the web, timeless in an album, artistic on your wall, and the most precious collection of memories you could ever imagine cherishing forever!

 

If you have toured my site and you love what you see then I’d love to set up a coffee date and go over your wedding plans and talk to you about all we have to offer.

I'm Mary, mom to 3 handsome and full of life boys...yes I said 3 boys! My life has been a pretty normal one, I grew up in the country and love the great outdoors.  At the early age of 11 my parents gave me a camera for my birthday and I've had one in my hands since. 

 

I am very passionate about my work, I am an artist in many forms but having the opportunity to bring the beauty in a creative’s dream to the surface is where I find my sweet satisfaction. My heart swoons at a perfectly chosen color scheme, a beautiful bridal bouquet and every little detail. 

 I believe in holding on to hope, that joy is contagious and that living intentionally has a beautiful impact in others.
