"She is as enthusiastic about your special day as you are. She always gets the shot no matter what! I still laugh at time she tied a rattle to her shoe and shook her leg to get my daughter’s attention so we could get the perfect family shot (and it worked)!"
- Amy Israel, mother
AS MY HUSBAND AND I LOOKED THROUGH OUR PHOTOS THE FIRST TIME WE COULD HEAR THE MUSIC PLAYING AND OUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY LAUUGHING, WE COULD SMELL THE SUMMER BREEZE AND THE SPARKLERS BURNING, THE ENTIRE DAY ALMOST COMES TO LIFE ALL OVER AGAIN THROUGH MARY'S PHOTOS. AND, IN 20 YEARS FROM NOW, I THINK MARY'S PHOTOS WILL STILL HOLD THE SAME MAGIC."
- KATIE PETERS, BRIDE
"I can't stop smiling whenever I look at our pictures."
Some of my favorite shots are ones that she miraculously captured when least expected. That split second between a tantrum and fit of laughter when children discover the joy in tossing rocks, or the contrast between hands that have lived a full lifetime intertwined with fingers that are just discovering all that life has to offer. - Jade Duell, mother
- Rachael Haase, bride
I cannot express enough how incredible it was working with Mary. From the day we asked her to photograph the wedding to the day we received the pictures she was a dream to work with. She was so welcoming to my ideas, and was even willing to help me out with a few side projects, in addition to the wedding photos; she created digitally enhanced photos of our parents to give as thank you gifts, and even offered to make the thank you cards without a moment of hesitation.
Overall, working with Mary was the best decision I made throughout all my planning, she was professional, enthusiastic, accommodating, truly a pleasure to be around and work with, in addition to the amazing, inspired, and gorgeous photos she took for us." - Jessica Dyzenkowski, bride
"I’d been in a lot of wedding parties prior to my wedding, and doing the wedding party photos was my least favorite part. They always took a lot of time and were not usually a particularly fun part of the wedding. Working with Mary on our engagement and wedding photos was the first time I actually really enjoyed a photo session. She was a lot of fun to work with, had some great photo ideas and she really got things done quickly while still getting all of the amazing photographs that me and my wife wanted. - Brad Goupil, groom
"ASIDE FROM BEING SOMEONE YOU WANT TO STAY FRIENDS WITH LONG AFTER YOUR WEDDING, SHE IS AN AMAZINGLY TALENTED PHOTOGRAPHER."
She had such creative ideas and she worked quickly and discreetly (though she was a great help when we had to make sure the bridal party was ready to head out the door - handing out flowers, pinning on boutonnieres, and generally making sure things went smoothly, all while capturing great photos!) - Alex and Lily Ferrill, bride + groom
"One of the most difficult things to do in planning your wedding, your “perfect” day, is to give up control. After months and months of planning, many dollars, and probably some tears, your “big day” will fly by in the blink of an eye. The only tangible thing you will have after the day comes and goes are the photographs.. and maybe a video. Having seen a lot of Mary’s work through social media including weddings, engagement sessions, family photographs, and (my favorite) photographs of her own everyday LIFE, I already knew I wouldn’t have to ask myself, “Is she capturing this?” With Mary, the photos were one thing I honestly did not have to worry about. - Ricky and Jillian Saetta, bride + groom
