Your wedding day is about more than a ceremony & photos:
it’s an entire experience.

Let me help you by crafting a wedding experience that honors your unique relationship and allows you the freedom to fully enjoy the journey of your love story.

I am here to make your wedding day effortless and stress-free.

Through romantic and soft imagery, I will photograph  your love story and your personalities and quirks. Whether it's just the two of you in a forest, atop a mountain, or in the comfort of your own backyard surrounded by your chosen family, I will be there to preserve the moments.

Are you a couple envisioning a stress-free wedding planning experience? Do you love going on adventures together and want to bring that adventurous spirit into your epic wedding day?

I’m right there with you.

As a person of color, I understand how important it is to be represented accurately in photos and to keep folks with diverse skin tones in mind. My editing style creates soft and inviting imagery that is always aware of diverse skin tones.


After you book with me, you instantly get access to my guides, templates and professional recommendations. Basically all the hard work is done for you.

Unlimited assistance in bringing your elopement dreams to life.

Being photographed is an inherently vulnerable task. I work to make my businesses a safer space for vulnerability by approaching every new client with curiosity (and not my own assumptions), I give clear “here is what to expect next” at every step of our time together and I regularly check in and ask for your consent at every step.

A welcoming and Intentional space for vulnerability.

I completely understand that each and every couple I got the honor to photograph is unique, so I will not put you in generic poses that do not feel like you. No forced Pinterest posing and you only move the way you normally do to show your love to each other. I prioritize your consent.

Posing that honors you and your relationship.

It is my priority to help you relax into your special day. 


A smaller celebration doesn’t make your day any less meaningful or special, which is why I offer a full storytelling photography experience to allow us to slow down, and be in the moment. With me, we skip rigid traditions and we roll on your timeline.

Aubrey  & Kevin

Mary was the absolute best photographer we could have gone with! She was so sweet, had so much energy, blended right in with our guests, and overall delivered the most beautiful pictures of our wedding night. Instead of focusing so much on posed moments (though she did a great job at those too), Mary captured the real people and emotion of the day. We couldn’t be more happy we went with her!

What my couples say after choosing me:

Dee & Alex

Mary was the perfect photographer for my wedding! She was so professional and took special care to clarify our aesthetic preferences and confirm the hourly itinerary for the day. Everything she did had a personal touch! I can't recommend her enough and am so happy with how my photos turned out.

What my couples say after choosing me:

Kylie & Ben

Mary is sweet, professional, *talented* and her eye for special moments was oh so spot on. Our wedding was so lovingly encapsulated in rich, skillfully designed and lovingly captured pictures. Moments between friends and family and the details and the excitement and the joy- everything all came rushing back. Mary blew me away and I really hope you get to experience that 'wow' moment just like we did.
