My name is Mary, and I'm a lifestyle wedding and portrait photographer. Whether I am wandering through a forest, traveling the world, or attending a wedding, I can't seem to keep a camera out of my hands. I live in San Diego, CA with my husband, Nick, and our two boys and love adventuring through life with them.
Things I Love
My deep love of imagery sprouted within me when I was a little girl. I lived for the quiet hours of the day when I could draw, paint and otherwise capture the world swirling around me. Creating was as innate as breathing and soon became my means of processing and appreciating life.
I first picked up a camera when I was twelve years old and haven’t been able to put it down since. In college, I studied fine art and graphic design (see work here), and am now using my understanding of these subjects to strengthen my photography.
Exploring life through art and photography has allowed me to capture images that reflect the deepest parts of myself and the people around me. These images create an enduring space for celebration, contemplation and healing.
I hope to have the opportunity to hear your story, join in your journey and photograph you! Please contact me if you have any questions or comments.
