A Surprise Proposal at King's Family Vineyard
"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
Surprise Proposal at Tanners Ridge Overlook
"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
"Mary was an absolute diamond of a find! Can’t say enough good about our experience and we love our photos (maternity). Mary went out of her way to help me settle on the perfect location literally a day before the shoot because the first location I picked just wasn’t going to work (freezing temps and wind concerns). Book Mary. You will not be disappointed. Extremely professional with an absolutely charming and warm personality that puts you in a great mood as soon as you meet her!" Julie
