Hi there! I’m Mary, a wedding and elopement photographer based in Northern California + Colorado. I started my wedding photography career in Colorado in 2014, and moved to Sacramento, California at the beginning of 2018. Since then, I have been traveling back and forth, and all over the world to document celebrations.
I have a candid + photojournalistic style- I love to capture those honest, fleeting moments that you don't expect to see again. While I won't pose you stiffly, I'll guide you and give you tips to make you comfortable in front of the camera, and just enjoy being yourselves together! I’m used to working with couples who have no experience in front of the camera, so don’t worry about being camera shy!
I’m a calm and collected presence on your day. While I will step in to direct when necessary, for the most part I like to hang back and let the magic unfold naturally. I realize posed family photos are necessary and appreciate them for what they are, so I do those as well.
There’s nothing more important to me than trust between us. This trust lets you be silly, loving, and honest with each other in front of my camera, with no judgments. One of the favorite parts of my job are the couples I get to meet, and building new friendships. I would love to get to know you!
Who I am:
I love to be outside rock climbing, camping, and hiking. I find the most inspiration and solace when in nature. I grew up in Japan on a US military base, and moved to Boulder, Colorado when I was 15. I absolutely love traveling and have been to 28 countries so far. Before photographing weddings I traveled around the world to film and photograph rock climbing. While I love traveling I also love being a homebody, having a yummy cocktail, and going dancing with friends. I turned 30 this year, and am loving it so far!
