"Mary was absolutely fantastic we used her for a surprise engagement. She was very good with communication and putting up with us as we didn’t have much of a plan. She scoped the area and helped come up with the right location for amazing pictures. We took the pictures at a winery and she went out of her way to make sure we were able to have a photographer on site. Highly recommend her! Photos turned out great even with the amount of heat and humidity." Kayla

"Mary was fantastic! She was very responsive leading up to the photo session and I felt like I already knew her by the time we met for the shoot. She did a fantastic job capturing us as a couple while putting just the right amount of emphasis on the locations we chose in the background (which were important to us). She was especially good at proposing different poses and catching just the right moment - all while being an absolute delight to work with. We will certainly be working with her again and could not recommend her more highly!" Angenette

"I would absolutely recommend Mary. My (now) fiance and I are not from Virginia, but love the mountains. I reached out to a number of photographers to get ideas of where to propose and how we could secretly capture the proposal. She was by far the most helpful, providing numerous locations that fit my criteria. Selecting her was easy for me at that point. She was punctual and extremely flexible with our travel schedule and working around the poor weather coming through the area. Lastly, and most importantly, the pictures are beautiful. We were excited to share them with our loved ones." James

Had a great time with Mary at our engagement shoot in Shenandoah. She was very helpful and accommodating from the start while trying to plan our trip (we were from out of state). Day of instructions were very informative and easy to follow. She was there before us ready to go on time and had great energy throughout the shoot. Very professional and timely in getting the album afterwards, 10/10 recommend Mary for your next shoot whatever the occasion! John
