About

On WeddingWire since 2019

Hi! I鈥檓 so glad you鈥檙e here!

I am based in Salem, Oregon, but work predominately in Portland and the coast, and other destination areas in Oregon. I specialize in intimate weddings and elopements, but am happy to do bigger weddings as well.

My style is emotive, candid and romantic. I am committed to working with clients who are madly in love and want to capture those feelings! I work to create a genuine, welcoming and comfortable environment where you can be yourselves, and your connection can be captured. I truly believe that each couples love story is beautiful.

Most days you鈥檒l find me at home with my daughter Lola, building forts for dinosaurs, or hiking or at the beach. I love super strong coffee, and making new cocktails! I look forward to meeting you and fully celebrating your wedding day with you!

    Could not be happier!

    Do not hesitate to immediately book Mary as your photographer. I cannot say enough good things about her. She was very communicative, listened and delivered on exactly what we wanted. We wanted to avoid our wedding photos showing any wedding day jitters or being too posed and we were amazed at how relaxed Mary made us feel. She managed to turn the picture taking into a good time for all. Only down side I will say is you will have so many wonderful photos to go through that it will be hard to choose your favorites!! I wouldn鈥檛 hesitate to use Mary again for future events.

    Mary Berrien Photography's reply:

    Thank you so much for your kind review! I absolutely loved your wedding and getting to capture your long awaited day 馃槏
    You were both such a dream to work with and your love is very evident in your photos 馃槏

    Wonderful to Work With!

    Mary originally did our engagement photos back in 2018, and we loved her so much, she was our first choice for wedding photographer! She is easy to work with and makes you feel so comfortable in front of the camera. I love all the photos she's taken of us and am so thankful we chose her to capture our memories.
    Mary is easy to get ahold of, more than reasonably priced, and she delivers photos timely (she had our preview photos the next day!).

    Mary Berrien Photography's reply:

    Thank you so much Taylor! It was amazing to be a part of your gorgeous winter wedding at one of my favorite places. You and David are definitely meant to be! I love your mysterious foggy pictures so much 馃槏馃槏馃槏

    So happy we went with Mary for our wedding!!

    Mary shot our wedding August 21, 2021, and if we could go back in time, we'd hire her again every single time! She went way beyond our expectations both in her craft and her amiability. She was professional and clearly knew her stuff, but was also so approachable and fun to hang out with. She was a seamless extension to our special day. Oh! And she sent us sneak peaks THE VERY NEXT DAY which is huge, and the photos we've seen so far are just pure magic. She didn't just capture the events of the day, she captured the feelings of the day, and that's exactly what we hoped for. Plus she convinced us to do the first look and that was a great addition and we're so glad we did it. 10/10 would recommend Mary!

    Mary Berrien Photography's reply:

    Emily + Austin!! I loved your day!! Not only was the scenery stunning, but your love and connection were palpable- your vows so heartfelt, and your photos turned out beautifully because of it. (also the gluten free pizza bar was * amazing * )

    I loved working with you both, and your families and friends 馃А

    Awesome Experience!

    Logan and I had a really great experience working with Mary! Our wedding was quite a bit bigger than her norm, but she was willing to work with us and did such a beautiful job. She was very enjoyable to work with and super helpful with the process leading up to the wedding. We could not be happier with the photos!! Highly recommend Mary Berrien Photography!

    So flexible and puts you to ease!

    Mary was so flexible and accommodating to our many wedding changes and photo requests. We have a big family and she helped us get shots with everyone. Her personality made us feel very comfortable and she has a great eye for where the best shots can be within the venue. She was the perfect balance of grabbing us for photos and letting us do our thing at the wedding. I would definitely recommend using Mary for your wedding (or other types) photography!

    Thank you guys so much- you were an absolute dream to work with! I鈥檇 take your wedding/engagement photos every day of the week and I hope I get to see you guys again!!

    Outstandingly helpful and great quality

    My now husband and I are extremely awkward. We don鈥檛 do well with staged pictures. Mary took both of engagement and wedding photos. Starting with the engagement photos she found a location that was not only a place my husband and I love but a place that photographs well. She made the process go well, playing fun music and having us relax and act natural. The pictures came out great! We stayed in touch she helped me craft a timeline for day of. She send an adorable email the day before calming my nerves. We鈥檝e not received all of our wedding photos yet, but the ones we do have are amazing! She did a great job capturing us and our guests.
    I highly recommend her for all of your photography needs. I can鈥檛 imagine anyone else for our big moments.

    Wonderful experience!

    Mary is amazing to work with and she is so talented. Our pictures turned out beautiful and she was great working around our large wedding party and even larger families.
    I was lucky to be able to experience her work in advance with my sister-in-law's wedding and his family's photoshoot. She was great then and she was great for our wedding too.
    You absolutely should choose Mary! She is incredible!

    Simply the Best

    I don't even know where to begin!
    Mary Berrien went above and beyond the call of duty to capture our wedding.

    The wedding we had originally planned pre Covid was a 300 person affair with guests traveling from all over the world; but when a global pandemic changes your plans you have to adapt. It turned into a backyard event with 15 guests and countless others on zoom - Mary was there to capture every wonderful moment for us.

    Mary came highly recommended from an old friend who really helped us out in our hour of need. When plans continued to evolve due to the changing tides of the restrictions Mary rolled with the punches and continued to be a fantastic person to work with. Changing locations back and forth and back again didn't phase her in the slightest.

    She was a joy to work with and took a couple who usually doesn't take great pictures together and gave us some amazing memories we'll cherish forever.

    Whenever we are able to celebrate how we originally planned, Mary Berrien will be there again to capture those moments as well.

Hi!

I'm so happy you're here!

I'm Mary, and I think I have the best job in the world. I get to see people on the happiest day of their lives! I get to capture all your emotion and love and connection and it's so amazing to experience.

i've been a photographer since the days of film cameras (yikes- that definitely dates me). But I've always loved the art of it- how you can capture one fleeting expression, maybe that you wouldn't even notice in real life, but now that expression is there forever. And in that moment you see how much love exists.

I'm a mama to one sweet 4 year old, Lola. We have a gray and white kitten named Kiwi. We love going to the beach (not Kiwi) even on cold days and experiecing the rugged beauty of this Oregon Coast. I also do floral design (I've made a ton of bridal bouquets!) and my good friend lets me help her on her flower farm. We love Hawaii, and can't ever wait to get back. I love yoga, pottery, reading, road trips, and travel in general.

I pour my heart and soul into each wedding, so I love when we can mutually appreciate each other. It really shows in the photos. It's an honor each time someone chooses me.

My favorites are elopements and intimate weddings. To me, there's an extra layer of sentimentality in those, because they are so couple focused, rather than guest focused. All wedddings are special, but those really have my heart. I've also had the best time of my life at some of the biggest Mexican weddings- so full of dancing and laughter and tradition.

I'm always looking for new experiences, so please reach out if you have any questions.
