Mary Sarah was the perfect addition to our special day. From the beginning, Mary Sarah was very flexible in how we used her services and gave us the flexibility to create a wedding package that fit our needs. Her relaxed and professional personality eases my worries leading up to the big day. My husband and I were not afraid to tell her exactly what we wanted, and Mary Sarah delivered everything we asked and more. Another great addition to Mary Sarah’s services was having her husband, Brent, as the second photographer. Although we did not meet Brent until the day-of, Mary Sarah and Brent were so comfortable with each other that it added another level of fluidity to the day. They captured every major moment of the ceremony and reception while being strategic about staying out of the limelight. My husband and I are so happy we chose Mary Sarah Photography.
From our engagement shoot to our wedding day to receiving our album afterwards, Mary Sarah went above and beyond in every way. She balances professionalism with friendliness that makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera. She was so thoughtful at every point in the process, and makes the wedding day run so smoothly with her detail-oriented schedule/photo timeline. Her photography skills are unparalleled and she gave us beautiful photos we will enjoy looking back on for a lifetime. We could not have asked for more in a wedding photographer. Definitely, 100% go with her for your big day and thank you Mary Sarah!!
Mary Sarah was the first vendor we hired during our wedding-planning process. We felt we had an instant connection not only to her, but also to her photography, which was absolutely beautiful. And, in the end, the photos she took of us truly lived up to the beauty standards her example photos had set - we (and our guests) absolutely loved both our wedding AND complimentary engagement photos. Not only were the photos beautiful, but she made them so easy to take; I'm a pretty "type A" kind of person, and Mary Sarah definitely understood that, ensuring we were working to a well-defined schedule (which she worked with us to put together), capturing all of the details and people that were important to us, and making sure the whole process was easy and calm. She was also super accommodating pre- and post-wedding. First, she helped us to find the best location for our engagement photos (she also found quick work-arounds when some unexpected snafus deterred our shoot, and captured the whole thing while pregnant). Second, she composed a package that fit our budgetary needs (while I am a huge believer that photography is one thing you should splurge on at a wedding, she still helped us to stay within budget!). Finally, she made us both hi-res and lo-res copies of our photos for both printed and social media use. And this doesn't even cover the little touches that were so wonderful: she knew our theme was Lord of the Rings, so she wore a LotR necklace, AND came up with some thematic shots; while taking pictures, even though she had not been commissioned to take video, she recorded a few minutes of a dance she felt couldn't be captured in stills; and she is even sending us a little present (can't wait to see what it is!). All in all, a fabulous photographer who provided a fabulous experience. Highly recommended.
Mary Sarah is seriously the best! She made my fiancé and I feel so comfortable during our shoot! We even had a lot of fun! She was very professional and gave us a lot of direction so our pictures turned out gorgeous! She is truly talented in finding unique, beautiful places to shoot your pictures, and make her subjects look natural in the photos. I have received so many compliments on how beautiful our pictures turned out and it is all thanks to her! If you are looking for a photographer for your engagement/wedding pictures, you absolutely should hire Mary Sarah!
Mary Sarah is AMAZING!! She is so friendly to work with and has made every photo shoot we have experienced with her so much fun and easy. Photography was something I didnt need to worry about when planning our wedding because I knew she had everything covered. She captured every moment that you want to see looking back on your big day. I will continue to recommend her to everyone I know!! Her work is INCREDIBLE
She does an amazing job! Her and her husband were troopers and took our engagement photos in the freezing cold. Definitely recommend Mary Sarah, you will be very happy with your decision!
You truly get what you pay for....and THEN some! Mary Sarah Photography was our FIRST and LAST stop when checking out wedding photographers. From the beginning, Mary Sarah made us feel at ease. It might have been the cinnamon crunch bagel with hazelnut cream cheese from Panera that she suggested when we first met, but regardless, my husband and I felt like we were working with a professional and more importantly, a friend! We knew she was the one for us before we even met. We had done some research of our wedding venue on Pinterest and came across her image of the wine glass chandelier which convinced us she was the one for us! If a photographer can capture this stunning image of a wine glass chandelier, what other amazing images was she capable of? We didn't have to wait long to figure that out. It was her first time shooting at the University of Maryland and the images she captured during our engagement session left us speechless. She truly has a talent and passion for what she does and it shows in her images! Mary Sarah was an integral part in making sure we had our wedding day timeline down. What I most admired about Mary Sarah was her ability to remain professional, flexible and positive when we lost 30 min of our wedding due to rain. Did I also mention it was probably the hottest day of the summer and Mary Sarah was 4 months pregnant, yet she remained calm, cool (maybe not literally) and collected! Hopefully this review will show her how much I appreciated that as a Bride! It was also nice to see that the experience with Mary Sarah was a family affair as her younger sister helped out on our Engagement Session and her husband helped out on our wedding day! They make such a great team and it was just a joy to be surrounded by teamwork and love on our wedding day! I could go on and on about what a fantastic job Mary Sarah did, but I will just let our experience speak for itself and hopefully your decision to hire her will be as seamless as ours was!
People, hear me: I hated wedding planning, but the easiest part of this entire wedding process; our photographer. I went to a bridal show at our venue (Holly Hills Country Club - highly recommend) and they had a handful of vendors present. I saw the most gorgeous display of pictures, and standing next to the showcase was Mary Sarah. Without hesitation I asked, "Are you available on October 1st?!" She had another bride wanting to consult with her to discuss her wedding, but I was blessed enough to reserve the big day....as I pretty much hired her on the spot. Shortly after the bridal show, we had our first meeting. Mary Sarah explained her style as classic photos that are timeless, rather than putting five zillion layers of filter on a photo that will look like something from your Instagram. Mary Sarah contacted me to schedule another virtual meeting two weeks from our wedding day to discuss specific shots I'd like, & what "photo theme" we were hoping for. The wedding day came quickly & before I knew it, it was 3 o'clock & Mary Sarah was ready to roll. Assisting her was Brent, & he ensured that my dress was laying properly, no straps were flying out, & that the neck ties on the groom(s)/men were all straight. Of course it rained on our wedding day, but Mary Sarah was a fearless leader as she lead us outside onto the venue grounds to catch the perfect pictures of me and my now husband. After a few family/friend photos, we got hitched! After that, the party quickly began. Mary Sarah, bless her heart, was a trooper as we did not stand still for one moment. After the wedding, we received a few photos about two weeks later, and 6 weeks later, we have all of them! WE ARE IN LOVE WITH THEM!! Mary Sarah is incredible to work with and will capture each moment of your day! Overall, Mary Sarah worked with our budget, was flexible on photo times, offered great packages to add, & captured our day perfectly. Thank you so much Mary Sarah and Brent!!
Mary Sarah was fantastic. We met her at a bridal show and instantly felt super comfortable with her. I got together with her two times before the wedding to go over what we wanted and then the day of timeline. She captured absolutely gorgeous photos and I will be able to relive my wedding day every time I look at our pictures thanks to her!
Mary Sarah was excellent! She did our engagement pictures and wedding photography and was so fun to work with. She is incredible at capturing every moment.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!! Mary Sarah has an artistic eye, excellent communication skills and she made the photo shoots a joy from start to finish. She has a real gift and we are very grateful for all her hard work. Mary Sarah and her husband Brent are rock stars. If you need a photographer, hire them. You'll be glad you chose them for your special day.
Mary Sarah and her husband Brent were absolutely amazing to work with. From the very beginning we fell in love with her photography. From our Engagement shoot to our wedding she was absolutely amazing and very flexible to work with. We weren't really sure what type of pictures we wanted for everything, so she recommended some pictures and they turned out amazing. Her husband went with the guys before the ceremony and got some amazing shots while Mary Sarah stayed with the girls while we were getting ready. I would definitely recommend Mary Sarah Photography to anyone planning a wedding!
MarySarah is wonderful to work with! She helped plan our day and pictures around that. She captured all the photos we wanted and more! 😃 She is an amazing photographer and is sure to capture your special moments and beyond! The moments captured are worth every penny.
Mary Sarah and her husband Brent are amazing photographers. They did the photos for my daughters wedding last Sunday. Mary Sarah is wonderful to work with, she really has an eye for great photo spots and ideas for wedding photographs. We met with her a couple of weeks before the wedding at the venue so that we could get an idea of where we wanted photos taken, plan out the timeline for the day of the wedding and all the small details you don't think of for the wedding day. She is very accommodating with pictures, we wanted a huge family picture of about 25 people and she and her husband were wonderful in working with everyone to get them into the picture. She is wonderful to work with and the most amazing part is her photographs. The photo ideas that she comes up with are incredible and they turn out perfect!!! Every time I show one of her photos to someone they say "this should win an award!" and they truly should. If you look on her website you will be amazed at the photos she has taken. I would highly recommend Mary Sarah Photography for anyone getting married
Amazing photos & great photographerReviewed on 12/14/2014 Lindsey C
Mary Sarah and her husband Brent were an absolute joy to work with. After finding out that our original photographer was going to be nine months pregnant at our wedding, we started the hunt for finding a new photographer. I remembered meeting Mary Sarah at a wedding expo in January and contacted her regarding shooting our wedding. I am so glad that she was still available. She was so helpful throughout the planning process. She made our wedding day timeline and took all of the stress off of me. Not only was she amazing to work with, her pictures are absolutely stunning. My husband and I cannot wait to see the final product!
