Mary was such a dream to work with! Mary's attention to detail really showed in the effort she put forth not just in the time we spent together, but everything behind the scenes as well. Prior to our engagement shoot, Mary scouted the location herself and ended up doing the same for our wedding.

Not only is Mary completely professional and detail oriented, she's the sweetest! We had such a good time with her on a personal level at both our engagement shoot and on our wedding day! Her photos were stunning and we couldn't be happier! Mary is not afraid to do anything for a great shot, whether it's getting in the water at the beach, kneeling on the floor for dramatic angles...she does a great job in capturing moments that we can't help but want to relive.

We know we are forgetting so much, but Mary truly is a gem and my husband and I can't recommend her enough!

Alicia & Chris

After 11 years of dating, our original plans were to have a much bigger ceremony. Little did we know how special and intimate it would be with Mary’s help. Working with Mary was great from start to finish! Mary was super helpful in scouting locations and making recommendations based on weather and her experience. She met with us before the ceremony took place to look at the locations and find the best spots for photos. She was so flexible and kind, ensuring we felt comfortable and happy with the plan leading up to and on the day of.

My husband and I have never taken professional photos, so we required quite a bit of guidance. Mary was incredible at making us feel comfortable and giving us great tips on how to show our personalities in the photos and how to pose while also finding great locations to take each photo. She captured our special day beautifully, encouraging our silly side while showcasing our long-forged bond through intimate photos. I will cherish the photos and memories she captured. Mary is incredibly talented and lovely; you will not regret choosing her to capture your special day!

Brittany & Justin

We were incredibly fortunate to have been put in touch with Mary. We had Mary meet us at the Marin Headlands for our first ever shoot and it was a blast. She made us feel super comfortable and allowed us to be ourselves, while also being very open to our suggestions. She went out of her way to research the venue and landscapes to help make the day of our wedding go smoothly.

Mary did a great job capturing all aspects of the special day—candids of close friends and family, and sweet moments of the reception, first dance, and wild evening (which is often tricky!). The photos were delivered to us in a timely manner and it was such a joy to see how happy my parents were reliving the day through Mary’s photos. We recommend working with Mary if you want an extremely down-to-earth photographer who really cares about your unique journey as a couple and your stylistic preferences.

Hazel & Justin

Mary shot our destination elopement on the Big Island of Hawaii. She not only has an eye for finding the best backdrops to capture your story, but the heart to make you and your guests feel at ease in front of the camera. Mary took the time to stake out perfect spots to make sure her shots brought out the best in us and the natural beauty of Hawaii. When we were faced with harsh winds on the beach, she managed to use it to her advantage - my hair and dress blew perfectly in her pictures. I've got a sneak peek at my pictures and LOVE the results. I'm so happy to have entrusted Mary with my big day and would recommend any bride to do the same.

Susan & Ian

We did an elopement shoot with Mary along the picturesque Half Moon Bay, CA. Mary is a skilled and talented photographer, and she is fantastic at what she does! She knew all the perfect spots at our location that would make the make the most stunning photos, as well as where to park to avoid the Saturday beach goers! We love our photos where she skillfully captured the beautiful cliff side of Half Moon Bay. Not only is she professional, she is also friendly and welcoming which really made any awkwardness disappear when we shot some intimate poses. My husband and I are so pleased and extremely happy with her output. To anyone and everyone looking for a professional photographer in the Bay Area, we highly recommend Mary!

May & Jedd

What a pleasure it was to work with Mary! She photographed my wedding in Muir Woods and Mount Tam and I am thrilled with how the images turned out. It was one of the most special days of my life and she captured it so beautifully. Mary is very sweet and laid back and made me feel comfortable in front of the camera - the photos speak for themselves. She is truly an artist who can see and capture the beauty of that particular moment. I was also lucky to have Brian, her husband, there as her lighting assistant, whom she works extremely well with. She produced images that I will cherish forever. She will be my photographer for all the important events in my life!

Sayuri & Andreas

Mary was recommended by a friend and after looking through her portfolio, we knew she was the right photographer for us. She was able to catch the quiet moments between the couples, the action shots, the family portraits, and showcase the incredible wedding venues. Working with Mary was awesome as she was extremely organized, punctual and was so great with all our family and friends. We talked about what types of shots I wanted beforehand, and I told her that I really liked her ability to capture the amazing backdrops of each wedding venue. She did not disappoint as she gave us some amazing photos of City Hall and San Francisco and reminded me how beautiful the city really is.
