Welcome to the blog!

Hi! I'm Mary Sarah

 I'm a Jesus follower, mac 'n cheese lover, and travel enthusiast. I specialize in wedding, high school senior, and lifestyle photography in the Frederick, MD area but am always down to travel. I'm a mama to two, married to my high school sweetheart, and am passionate about authentically telling love stories through photography and eating as much dark chocolate as I can. Stick around awhile to view the latest love stories I've had the privilege of capturing.

Maternity Photography Maryland | Downtown Annapolis Maternity Photos


I am seriously obsessed with Maria’s Downtown Annapolis maternity photos! This gorgeous mama rocked all of my gowns while managing to not look cold despite it being 35 degrees outside. Maria’s husband Alecks was so sweet, constantly complimenting her and telling her how beautiful show looked. These two are expecting a little boy in March […]

I have been looking forward to Bailey & Brady’s Bluebird Manor wedding for months!

Ellen & Marco’s Milton Ridge Wedding


My heart sunk when I received Ellen’s text that they were going to have to postpone their wedding indefinitely. Ellen and Marco were supposed to get married back in July, but Marco lives in Honduras and due to strict Covid travel restrictions Marco literally was unable to make it to his own wedding. In the […]

Springfield Manor Wedding


Jenn & Bobby couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day for their Springfield Manor wedding. Earlier in the week the weather had been predicting torrential thunderstorms, but instead we had nothing but blue skies and beautiful light.

I’ve taken DC engagement photos before and it’s always hard to fit in a number of locations because everything is so far apart. Thankfully, Emma’s parents, Lynn & Dan, (who happen to be good friends […]

It began with Frankie’s wintry Downtown Frederick proposal where I was able to capture all of the joy and excitement of that once-in-a-lifetime moment. Then I was there beside them documenting their engagement and […]
