How do I start to describe Mary Ella? Mary Ella as a person is amazing. She is super friendly and makes you feel comfortable the second you meet her. I first met her at a friend’s wedding and knew I would love to have a photographer like that. Mary Ella has a great personality that makes you feel like you have been great friends. Along with her dashing personality, she is very responsive to text and reassures you that the day will be perfect. Our wedding was outdoors and we were worried about rain. But Mary Ella made me feel confident that rain or shine she would take beautiful pictures.Sent on 07/26/2017
Now lets talk about the photographs. She is absolutely talented. We did our engagement and wedding photos with her. We loved our engagement photos. They really captured our interest and regal dog. She is a dog whisperer and could get our dog’s attention to take a picture. We have yet to get all of our wedding photos because it just happened. But the little teasers she has been posting and sending has been absolutely amazing. She was able to capture the beauty of our venue and made us look pretty good (we aren’t huge “picture people”). Mary Ella is the whole package: friendly and funny photographer and super talented!
Mary Ella Jourdak Photography's reply:Can we go back to Philly again!? Even though we all sweat our butts off to the max, I love and appreciate everything about you + Shaun's day. Thank you for having me be such a special part of your wedding, I rarely get to feel like such a welcomed guest on top of the hustle behind the camera. I still have my table setting card and cherish the absolute bajesus out of it!

A+ photographer who goes above and beyond!
Mary shot our wedding in Philadelphia and engagement photos in Maryland, she was fantastic! She found beautiful ways to photograph us against a cool abandoned brick wall and in a stunning park. Besides Mary's amazing photographic eye, excellent sense of design, and willingness to climb to get “the shot”, what really makes her stand out is her way with people. Mary can get everyone from newborns to nonagenarians to look great, and she captures that beauty perfectly. We cannot recommend Mary highly enough.Sent on 04/26/2021

Wonderful photographer, gorgeous photos!
I have been following Mary’s photography for years, as she consistently captures beautiful moments of family’s lives. I got married in November and Mary photographed our wedding and it was incredible!! We never felt self conscious in front of the camera because we were too busy laughing and enjoying ourselves! Mary was kind and friendly to our family and guests, and she even presented creative solutions to help our at-risk family members feel comfortable with socially distant family photos! The pictures we’ve received so far are incredible! We highly recommend Mary to be your photographer, too!Sent on 12/16/2020
