get to know me

Let’s talk about the important stuff

values - mission - promise 

01. Integrity 

I truly believe that integrity is the foundation of everything. Honesty, trust, respect, and responsibility are all incredibly important to me and are values that I strive to live by every day. I’ll always be honest and transparent with you, fully respect you, and do everything I can to go above and beyond for you!

02. Authenticity

I talk about authenticity a lot especially in how I capture moments. I want your photos to feel authentic and true to you and who you are, but I also want you to always be getting my best and most authentic self. We’ll work best together when we’re being ourselves. So many of my past couples have become some of my close friends because I truly invest in you, care about you, and treat you as a friend.

03. Commitment

When you choose me as your photographer, I am truly committed to you and serving you the best I possibly can! To me, this means understanding and knowing your love story, putting my best foot forward every day, and delivering exceptional work every time.

Libby & Brian / April 2022

She delivered amazing photos that we will forever cherish. We could not recommend her enough!

Mary Kate went above and beyond as our engagement and wedding photographer and we could not be more pleased with our photos! From traveling countless hours to our destination, helping to rearrange our plans when they were uprooted, to coming BACK after our reception ended to capture additional photos, she made it clear that she genuinely cared about us as clients.

She was easy to work with, quick to respond to my long list of questions, and delivered amazing photos that we will forever cherish. We could not recommend her enough and look forward to using her as our photographer for our life events to come!

Mary Kate is an extremely kind-hearted and exceptionally talented photographer. 

Mary Kate is an extremely kind-hearted and exceptionally talented photographer. I am so lucky to have booked her for both my engagement and wedding pictures, as I could not be happier with how they turned out. She is strikingly charismatic, friendly, and easy to work with. She is incredibly committed to her work and to capturing the most magical of moments. I would like to also note that her turnaround rate is UNBELIEVABLE.

She provided us with sneak peeks from our special day in less than 48 hours! If you're in need of a gifted, professional, yet affordable photographer capable of travel, MK is the best of the best!

Emily & George / October 2021

By far the most fun and easy going photographer I’ve ever had the chance of working with! I can’t wait to work with her again!

Mary Kate was by far the most fun and easy going photographer I’ve ever had the chance of working with!! I have a pretty camera shy fiancé and she was so good about accommodating and finding locations that weren’t busy, while also just being absolutely amazing at posing and instructing us without making us feel awkward!

I love some of the verbal cues she uses for posing, it feels so much more natural and gets some super cute candid shots rather than feeling like you’re super posed in the photos. She was also SPEEDY with everything! We got over 100 amazing photos and only shot for 20-30 minutes. She also got them back to us incredibly quick! Hands down an amazing and incredibly talented photographer and I can’t wait to work with her again!

Brooklyn & Colin / May 2022

Mary Kate made our DREAM shoot come to life!

I came across Mary Kate’s account while scrolling through Instagram and was instantly captivated by the emotion and stories told by her photos. During our engagement shoot, Mary Kate made our DREAM shoot come to life - LITERALLY.

Her work belongs on the front of a magazine. As if anything could be more perfect, she sent us sneak peaks within 24 hours and the entire album after a couple of DAYS!!! Needless to say, MK is a great photographer, and an even better human. We are so thankful we found her work and cannot wait for the wedding day!

Kiara & Ryan / July 2021

INCREDIBLE. We ended up with the most authentically beautiful photos, and we will always be SO grateful for the moments she captured!

If I had to simplify my experience working with Mary Kate to one word it would be INCREDIBLE. We were in the middle of one of the worst summer storms and she watched the weather and made accommodations to ensure we had the best experience possible during our time. From the second we started to the moment we ended she instructed us on what to do and where to go - and we ended up with the most authentically beautiful photos.

I couldn’t have asked for a better experience! We also got our photos back in record time!! It only took 48 hrs to see a return on our investment and I couldn’t be more pleased with the result. We will always be SO GRATEFUL for the moments she captured!

Kelsey & Brennan / September 2022

Her photos are all OVER our house because we love them so much!

I was referred to MK by a friend! In starting out the wedding planning process over a year ago, I was very overwhelmed in choosing the right photographer for us. A year later and her photos are all OVER our house because we love them so much!! The engagement session was a breeze. Her beautiful photos held us over until we were completely blown away from our wedding photos! MK was very professional on the wedding day and kept both the groom and I calm but efficient with all of the shots we wanted!
