I do so love to hear stories! How you met, the joy your pet brings you, adventures you've taken with your best friend. What do we really have but our relationships? Documenting your story visually is what I love to do. It is so important to be present in pictures - the images on your wall remind you every day of what is truly important.
For me, it's my family, friends, pets, adventures! Sunny beaches, different countries and cultures, national parks and gorgeous sunsets are my jam. I love to explore nature in our beautiful Pacific Northwest.
I learned to develop film in high school. After college I worked in technical and creative writing for many years before starting my visual arts career in 2011. I am based in Port Orchard, WA, between Tacoma and Bremerton, but travel throughout Washington State. I would love to document your family!
Hello - I'm Mary

Oh, I love to see all the things! A weekend at the coast or a big adventure to Europe, Mexico, Hawaii - have suitcase, will travel! I love big road trips and am fascinated by the differences in culture, architecture and food by region. A few (of many) locations still on my bucket list: Iceland, Santorini, Thailand, Ireland, Venice.
Next best thing, tell me about your travels! Stationed overseas? Engaged on an exotic beach? Planning a European honeymoon? Tropical babymoon? Where would YOU like to visit?
destination wedding, anyone?!!
I am a huge, huge proponent of the human animal bond. My own pets have gotten me through some STUFF, and I am committed to doing the same for them. I'm often asked, "What kind of dogs do you have?" My answer: "Used!" I have a heart for the old, the unwanted, the weird. Someday I would love to raise a puppy again, but for now, these old dudes are accepted and loved.
Our time with our pets is often too short, and I love to include them in portraits and hear stories of your life with pets.

Not only my favorite photographer but also one of my favorite people! Mary captured my wedding photos at a very unexciting place (the courthouse) and managed to make the moment look just as magical as it felt when I married my husband! Highly recommend trusting Mary to capture the most important moments in your life!

Mary is amazing! We met her a few years ago at a pictures with Santa event for the humane society. We loved her so much we hired her to do our wedding last year! She did an absolutely amazing job! I couldn’t have asked for more!
