Hello there! I'm so glad you stopped by! My name is Mary, I'm a current senior at Hollins University in Roanoke, VA. I am a born and raised North Carolinian (Wake Forest - city, not University). When I was around 12, I began studying oil painting in a small class with a phenomenal instructor. I began to want to create my own reference images, so my loving parents bought me my first DSLR. The rest is history.

I began wedding photography in July of 2017 and within six months had nearly a dozen weddings under my belt (including my brother's wedding in Taiwan!). Wedding photography has become my one true love. I consider it to be such a blessing to be a part of the happiest day of people's lives. I love to get to know people and their personalities and try my hardest to capture that with my camera. To capture true personas and true smiles. 

I bet I can make you smile. What do you call a motorcycle that laughs?
A Yamahahaha.
