At MBP, we provide all our clients with dual coverage on their wedding day. Mary Basnight will be their
primary photographer and Mac Basnight will be their secondary photographer. Working as a team, we
provide our clients with full coverage on their wedding day. They receive a complementary mix of images
taken from different angles and different viewpoints. The coverage style will provide the most amazing mix
of images.

Second, MBP provides creative wedding photography planning advice. When our clients want to know
the best time to set their ceremony, the best time to shoot the family photos and so on, we can creatively
provide our clients with options so they can make an informed decision on how they want their wedding
day to be. MBP will help structure where and when to take photos during the day so clients will not be
spending noticeable time away from guests.

Last, MBP will attend the ceremony rehearsal when possible. This is not a photo op. More importantly, this is
part of the planning that goes into how MBP will provide coverage on the wedding day. It is also an opportunity
for MBP to meet the most important members of both families and the wedding party, give last minute advice
if needed and to introduce ourselves to your family. We want them to feel comfortable asking of us anything come
the day of the wedding

Mary and Mac Made us Laugh

We recently had our wedding photos taken by Mary and Mac and they were an absolute delight to work with. My now husband and I are quite awkward especially behind a lens, but she was able to pull us out of our shell just enough to not absolutely hate the experience. Her and her husband were absolutely hilarious and just a little bit weird that we felt completely at home. I absolutely cannot wait to see how Mary and Mac captured our very special day!

No one better, hands down!

Mary and her Husband were an absolute delight to work with! They both have an amazing eye and were very professional and fun to work with. Our pictures turned out better than I could ever have imagined. Can't wait to see how the wedding pictures will turn out!

Exceeded my expectations

If you are thinking about booking Mary for your engagement or wedding needs, DO IT. I cannot imagine my photos being anymore beautiful and “us” then they are. Mary is so beyond talented and her passion truly shows through her work. I am so thankful I found her!
