We did an elopement shoot with Mary along the picturesque Half Moon Bay, CA. Mary is a skilled and talented photographer, and she is fantastic at what she does!
She knew all the perfect spots at our location that would make the most stunning photos, as well as where to park to avoid the Saturday beach goers! We love our photos where she skillfully captured the beautiful cliff side of Half Moon Bay.
Not only is she professional, she is also friendly and welcoming which really made any awkwardness disappear when we shot some intimate poses. My husband and I are so pleased and extremely happy with her output. To anyone and everyone looking for a professional photographer in the Bay Area, we highly recommend Mary!

Mary is as amazing as she is nice! She made us feel very comfortable right off the bat. She was incredibly accommodating and willing to work with us, especially during these crazy [covid] times. Our plans pivoted a few times, and she was so gracious and understanding.
Her vision is not only artistic, but very clear. She seamlessly captured some really touching moments. She was really safe and kept a safe distance throughout our whole wedding.
We recently received the gorgeous images light years faster than she said she would get them to us, and we love them!
Mary is extremely skilled and super talented. She knows her light! Thank you for making our day that much more special and capturing such beautiful moments! We hope to get a chance to work with Mary for future shoots!

What a pleasure it was to work with Mary! She photographed my wedding in Muir Woods and Mount Tam and I am thrilled with how the images turned out. It was one of the most special days of my life and she captured it so beautifully.
Mary is very sweet and laid back and made me feel comfortable in front of the camera - the photos speak for themselves. She is truly an artist who can see and capture the beauty of that particular moment. I was also lucky to have Brian, her husband, there as her lighting assistant, whom she works extremely well with.
She produced images that I will cherish forever. She will be my photographer for all the important events in my life!

Mary shot our destination wedding on the Big Island of Hawaii and banquet/tea ceremony in Emeryville. She not only has an eye for finding the best backdrops to capture your story, but the heart to make you and your guests feel at ease in front of the camera.
In Hawaii, Mary took the time to stake out perfect spots to make sure her shots brought out the best in us and the natural beauty of Hawaii. When we were faced with harsh winds on the beach, she managed to use it to her advantage - my hair and dress blew perfectly in her pictures.
I've got a sneak peek at my pictures and LOVE the results. I'm so happy to have entrusted Mary with my big day and would recommend any bride to do the same.

Mary was recommended by a friend and after looking through her portfolio, we knew she was the right photographer for us. She was able to catch the quiet moments between the couples, the action shots, the family portraits, and showcase the incredible wedding venues.
Working with Mary was awesome as she was extremely organized, punctual and was so great with all our family and friends. We talked about what types of shots I wanted beforehand, and I told her that I really liked her ability to capture the amazing backdrops of each wedding venue. She did not disappoint as she gave us some amazing photos of City Hall and San Francisco and reminded me how beautiful the city really is.

I met Mary the day of my wedding. She shot and edited what are now treasured photographs of my husband and I at City Hall in San Francisco.
We trust her to capture our most memorable moments as a family and are so happy to have done another shoot with her recently with our little one, Ryder. What I love most about her photography style is her eye for scene and assistance.

We hired Mary for my photo session because she came highly recommended by a close friend. Days before the photo shoot, Mary had driven up to scout our location at the Marin Headlands and found that it would be closed off to visitors for just that weekend. When the original plan fell through, Plan B was Baker’s Beach. It ended up being foggy, but Mary quickly came up with an alternative plan which ended up being more amazing.
Due to her knowledge of the area, experience and flexibility, she was able to capture us in a beautiful outdoor area in the East Bay where it was not foggy. We even caught the golden hour with plenty of time to spare!
My husband and I are generally camera shy people but Mary, being the amazing professional she is, guided us on how to smile (and when not to) and how to pose lovingly. Pregnancy is certainly a milestone for many, and I wanted to make sure we picked someone who is as talented and gifted as Mary. Will reach out to her again for my next milestone.
