I get to photograph amazing people, traditions and ceremonies every week. Brides and grooms quickly go from being clients to dear friends. I bond with all my couples and continue that friendship long after the pictures have been printed. It’s one of the most rewarding parts of my job.

I love each moment of the wedding day and strive to capture it without being pushy, in the way, or forcing things. I am respectful of the ceremony space and your guests. The ultimate compliment I can get is, "I don't even remember you being there." The photographs should tell the story of the day without needing any words.

My photographic style is eclectic- I have a strong emphasis on a photojournalistic style but mixed in is traditional and artistic. Each wedding is different and I tailor my photography to the needs of each couple.

The studio photographs a very limited amount of weddings each year – between 10 and 15. This is to continue the tradition of high quality imagery and quick turnaround times for our clients.

My basic wedding package includes six hours of wedding day coverage and print permission. Every package also includes a complimentary engagement session. Add-ons and special coverage for a wedding are endless. Albums, prints, engagement party and rehearsal dinner coverage, etc. are all available.

I am a proud and award winning member of the Wedding Photojournalist Association (WJPA). My work can be seen in many wedding magazines and blogs. You can view my press clippings, my portfolio, and lots more on my website.

I like many women have some serious body image issues. I was worried about how I would look in my wedding photos, which was something I definitely had no need to worry about (cause what bride needs more to worry about). MaryKate put me at ease both during the engagement session and our big day. She went out of her way to give tips about "slimming" posing tricks to make everyone feel their best all day.

Her professionalism and photojournalist style made me fall in love with her and her work. We have only seen a view of the photos (we only got married yesterday) and we are already in love. She was incredibly flexible, when I was running late due to a timeline error made by my driver. I highly recommend MaryKate and will definitely use her for all our future picture sessions!

I hired Mary Kate on short notice for my wedding and she couldn't have been any more accommodating. She did a wonderful job and our guests even commented about how much they enjoyed her. We were very pleased with how the photos turned out. I would and will recommend her to anyone looking for photography services.

My husband and I agreed to have a very small, intimate wedding, and initially decided not to get a photographer, however 2 weeks prior to our wedding, we both agreed that we would regret not having professional photos of our day. I was so fortunate that Mary Kate was able to fit us in on such short notice. Mary Kate was amazing, from the moment I spoke with her on the phone, I knew we had the right photographer! She not only was accommodating, but she was also extremely professional, even at such a small wedding like ours (We only had 6 people).

Our photographs were done promptly, and both my husband and I were so very pleased with the outcome. MK truly has a gift – she captured some tender and intimate moments of one the happiest days of our lives; helping to make our wedding and our memories perfect! Words couldn’t begin to express our appreciation to Mary Kate. She truly is THE BEST!!!!!

We had a very casual, non-traditional wedding, and when I first started looking at photographers, I was worried that they would not understand the vibe we were going for. The first time I talked to Mary Kate, though, I knew she completely "got" us and the feeling of our event. We're both camera-shy and not photogenic, so we were a bit nervous about our pictures. However, at our engagement session Mary Kate made us feel completely comfortable, and we ended up with some incredible photos.

For the wedding itself, Mary Kate was supportive, fun, and completely flexible. She agreed to break up her time so that she could photograph the ceremony and part of the reception and then come back later to capture other wedding events.

When my new mother-in-law saw the wedding photos she said, "They're awesome! I could live the whole day all over again by looking at the pictures," and I completely agree! Mary Kate is talented and professional, but it's also obvious that she's a fun, caring person. I recommend her without reservation!

Not only did MK "not detract from the day," like you hear about being the goal for a wedding photographer, having her there enhanced the experience considerably. From our engagement photos on the Mall, to sharing some of the first moments of our marriage with her and the wedding party, it felt like having a life long friend along for the journey.

The pics were phenomenal. Having a second shooter was clutch because together they captured every single moment. So blessed to have worked with MK!

Mary Kate was wonderful! The pictures came out beautifully. Even though we only met a handful of times I feel like I could call her a friend. She is easy to get along with and you can tell she loves what she is doing.

Mary Kate was an absolute joy to work with. I fell in love with her work after she photographed my brother's wedding, and knew right away who to call when my own wedding rolled around. I could not be more pleased with the final product or our experience with her.

Where do I even begin with how amazing Mary Kate is?

From the beginning Mary Kate took a great interest in what our interests were. We immediately bonded during our engagement session and she made my husband feel at total ease taking pictures- which is hard to do! She asked us what we wanted from her as well as asked personal questions before the wedding as to what we were expecting with our pictures. Mary Kate just made us feel extremely comfortable throughout the entire day and everyone was just raving about her.

Mary Kate's professional ability/photographic skills is something that you cannot even imagine when you are looking for the right person to capture your wedding. She was always in the right place at the right time without you having to worry about it. She also had a couple of pictures up during the reception that all of the guests were commenting on. Mary Kate is simply wonderful at what she does and she will not let you down!

For the sake of full disclosure, I've known Mary Kate since college. That being said, Mary Kate isn't just an outstanding photographer; she's a wonderful person you would want attending your wedding, not taking the photos.

We started working with Mary Kate for our engagement photos in June 2011. The photos were fun, not too cheesy and captured our dynamic as a couple. It was also great having access to the photos for holiday gifts and such.

As we got closer to the wedding, Mary Kate had us fill out an questionnaire with information about our families, our ceremony and reception and preferences. I appreciated her interest in us as a couple and her photos captured (pun intended) the images we wanted from the day.

Mary Kate was professional throughout the day, but also willing to share a laugh with a family member or join me in making fun of my ham of a groom. It was like having a friend there who just happened to take amazing photos.

After the ceremony, Mary Kate quickly had photos on Facebook that we could share with family and friends who couldn't attend the wedding. I was impressed with her quick turn around and willingness to do what she could to ensure we had the photos as quickly as possible.

As a friend and a client, I highly recommend Mary Kate. I couldn't imagine our day without her there.
