When I started shooting weddings five years ago, I fell in love. I fell in love with the fact that I was able to be a part of an emotional, intimate day in someone's life; that I could capture tears, joy, nerves, or excitement as an art. I fell in love with giving something meaningful to my couples to help them remember the greatest day in their lives. I fell in love with helping to make a wedding day memorable.
That said, here's what's most important to me:
1. Planning. I meet or have a phone call with you twice before your wedding day to jot down all the little details that matter to you, the list of family shots, and those Pinterest-worthy moments you've been dreaming about. I do this so that on your wedding day, you aren't worrying about getting a shot with your great grandma or whether or not I captured the DIY sign you worked so hard on - I know what you want and I've taken care of it for you.
2. Enjoyment. I want you to have the best day ever, and I believe I play a big part in that for my brides. I keep things on schedule, smooth over little hiccups, and make sure that the bride and groom can focus on being in love, friends, and family. I thrive on working through the chaos, helping the day stay on schedule while making sure that you have an easy, fun, relaxing day. I try to make the portraits fly by, keeping you both relaxed while capturing genuine moments of love in the best lighting.
3. Love. Cheesy as it sounds - I love love. I want to capture that real, unique brand of love between my couples - the little inside jokes and the serious romanticism that makes each relationship different. I look to find what's beautiful and sweet about your lives and bring that out in each shot. I want my couples to look back at their photographs and not just see a beautiful image, but to feel the emotion of the moment they were in.
4. Art. Each package I offer contains print credit, and 3 out of my 4 packages come with a 12x12 luxe wedding album. Why? While you receive the digital images on a flash drive, nothing compares to a high-quality print or album that you can hold, examine, and display. They are moments that you'll look back on forever, and I think that every couple should have physical reminders of the day you spent a year or more planning.
If that sounds like what you want in a photographer, send me an email! I would love to meet with you and hear about your wedding day plans.

Personable and professional photographer
Mary Rose was great to work with! She balances professionalism and friendliness perfectly, and was always responsive when we had questions. Our wedding day ended up being super windy and much colder than expected, but Mary Rose stayed so calm and collected and helped us modify the outdoor photo plan. She captured so much emotion from each moment, and our photos came out beautiful.Sent on 12/02/2018
