This was my second marriage and my main priority was to find a creative photographer. Mary was everything I wanted!! The pictures were artistic and absolutely breathtaking! Not only is her work impressive but she is wonderful to work with. ...
She was kind, personable and always had a smile on her face. You could tell she loves doing what she does. I highly recommend her!!!

Mary is so great!!! We are so happy that we hired Mary! She brought Rachel Ligon as her second photographer b/c her usual person had a conflict and we got double lucky!!! They are both amazing photographers!!! I highly suggest to fill out the w...
orksheet Mary gives you beforehand. This way you can let her know of specific photos you want and she’ll make sure you get them. The wedding itself is so busy and moves so quickly that it’s good to have someone there to make sure you get what you want!! Unfortunately it rained the day of our wedding and we had to forgo some of the photos we wanted but Mary offered to take them the next day. I wish I had said yes but I knew no one would want to get dressed up again and most of our party was going home. That just means we’ll have to schedule another shoot later on - back to KW!!!

MARY IS AMAZING!!!! Mary & her second photographer went above & beyond anything I could have ever imagined. From the getting ready pictures, to getting down on the dance floor, THEY NAILED IT!! Mary got every picture I could have ever asked fo...
r! Not only got them, BUT completely made my jaw drop when I saw the final photos! Mary made me feel sooooo comfortable from the second she walked into my door at The Reach Resort. She was so down to earth and made me feel soooo relaxed yet excited! My husband says the same thing about the second photographer. He was so personable & made him feel so comfortable during the getting ready photos. Now on to the ceremony....OH MY GOODNESS!! THOSE PHOTOS!! I don't even remember seeing them around or as some people would say "in the way" and when I got the photos....OH MY!!! THEY GOT PICTURES FROM EVERY ANGLE POSSIBLE! The group photos with our family after were perfect & couldn't have gone more smoothly! We did have a small group but it was fairly fast getting all the photos with family members so they could go up top and enjoy cocktail hour while we got our couple photos! WHERE DO I EVEN BEGIN WITH THE COUPLE PHOTOS?! The lighting...the angles...the candid shots...the poses...every single one was PERFECT!! Now to my most favorite photos...the reception!! I smile and laugh every time I look at these! Mary & her second photographer got from every angle & THE BEST SHOTS of us having the best time ever!!! From first dances, (which I still cry at all the pictures of my dad & I) to the toasts, to all the line dances, dips & turns....they were more than I could have imagined. The detail shots of our rings blew my mind!! They have such unique & amazing ideas!! I truly couldn't ask for more in a wedding photographer! These pictures mean sooooo much to me & I will cherish them for the rest of my life! Mary Veal Photography should be your ONLY consideration!!! I promise they will not disappoint!

r. She focused on what the bride and groom wanted to capture during their day which included their goofiness and fun. The package we bought included 2 photographers and the pictures are absolutely amazing. My daughter is having a tough time deciding which pictures to pick for her album because there are so many good ones. Mary took the time to understand what we wanted, the quality is above and beyond, and I highly recommend Mary.

This review is for Mary Veal Photography from our wedding on May 2, 2015 at Hawks Caye Resort in Florida. I will preface this review by saying that Mary herself was very nice and was as sweet as could be leading up to and during the wedding. ...
However, we were utterly disappointed in the end result of our wedding pictures.
We communicated our general disappointment to Mary who offered to retake photos of us for free. However we do not live in Florida as this was a destination wedding, we would have to pay for a flight down, and get a hotel room. We would also not be re-capturing the magic of our wedding. Upon sending another more detailed email to Mary with more specifics on our frustrations, she responded in an extremely defensive and accusatory manner, and actually blamed the quality of the pictures on many things associated with our wedding, including our guests. She took no ownership for our disappointment and instead decided to make excuses for everything that we brought to her attention concerning our disappointment. After a few emails back and forth, Mary did eventually offer us $500 back. We declined this offer, as it could not bring back the day and the moment. After careful consideration we asked for $1500 as a consolation for the poor service. Mary declined to agree to these terms and stated that she believed that no amount of money back to us could make us happy. For $5000 price tag that we paid for her service, my wife and I felt the result of the photography did not match the price.
Overall the photos received back were bizarre. There was little or no creativity, the photos lacked attention to detail, and there were many photos that were off center, cluttered, and messy. Of the 586 photos we received there were only about 6 that we considered usable for some type of display, however, none of those 6 we were extremely happy about. We did not have many options to select from.
We provided her with details of our frustration including specific examples. When we brought all these items to her attention she responded with excuses and said "I did nothing wrong". Although we were not looking to point fingers at who was wrong or right, we were looking for empathy and a solution. Unfortunately the reaction of our photographer was to take a defensive position to justify each area of disappointment by making excuses and blaming others for the result we received, rather than provide empathy and understanding for a disappointed client. This is unfortunate and this is not expected from an entrepreneur in any business. The examples I provided you were not in any way to challenge her talent as a photographer., but rather illustrate our frustration as a customer. She seemed offended about our comments, rather than making a satisfactory offer to make it better, and more concerned in absolving herself from any responsibility. Her response should never be projected as fault of the customer. Unfortunately we were not happy with our pictures and we feel like we did not get what we paid for. Do not recommend.
