Welcome friends! I’m Mary Sarah! I am a wedding, high school senior, and lifestyle photographer in the Frederick, MD area. I love traveling, adventure, and strive to experience as much in life as I possibly can.

There’s nothing comparable to the joy and awe you feel when your little one enters the world. Suddenly there seems to be nothing more exciting than just staring at their little nose, playing with their fingers and toes, and listening to the sweet little noises they make when they sleep. Time seems to pass by […]
It’s no secret that I absolutely LOVE photographing around golden hour. Sometimes referred to as ‘magic hour’, golden hour is the period of time right before sunset when the light is warm, diffused, and just plain gorgeous. Realistically, the window of opportunity is more like 20 minutes or even less depending on the landscape and […]
It’s hard to believe, but it’s already time for the class of 2020 to start thinking about scheduling their senior shoots! I’m gearing up for senior portraits season over here and figured it was high time I blog a few of my favorite senior picture shoots from this past year. First up is Jenna’s beautiful […]
Considering we had snow just yesterday, I’m telling myself it’s not too late to post this snow maternity shoot. (I mean, let’s be real, I just popped out a baby 2 weeks ago so I’ve been a little preoccupied trying to keep two tiny humans alive.) Still, I was so in love with Meghan’s mini […]
Stone Tower Winery may be my current all time favorite wedding venue. Between the gorgeous vineyards, pond, reception hall, and wine cellar it’s hard to find a venue in the Leesburg and Loudoun County area that doesn’t offer more. Which is why I was so excited to participate in a Stone Tower Winery wedding styled […]
Oh man, this snow maternity shoot is just making my heart sing! As soon as I purchased my wine “Bree Gown” from Sew Trendy Accessories, I was hoping to be able to photograph it in the snow. Mallory also loved the idea of a snow maternity shoot, but neither of us were too keen on […]
This is only the second time I’ve had the opportunity to photograph an elopement, and I’m starting to love them! Chris and Sheena got married at the Frederick Court House and managed to keep their wedding a complete secret until they day of. They tricked both of their moms into meeting them outside the courthouse […]
I can’t believe it’s been six months since Rachel of Rachell Kendall Events and I put together this gorgeous canoe engagement shoot. I would have loved to blog this earlier, but between submitting for publications, waiting to get published on Baltimore Bride, and then allowing a grace time after the publication, I’ve had to wait this […]
Meet my friend Kelly, who proves that you can be 38 weeks pregnant and still absolutely stunning! I met Kelly when I photographed her first son, Camden, for a newborn shoot a couple years ago. We found out we both attended Mountain View Community Church and as we’re always looking for friends in our same stage of […]
Wow, 2018 has been an AMAZING year! We were blessed to work with so many wonderful couples and can’t thank them enough for entrusting us to photograph the most meaningful moments of their lives. As a special thank you to all of our 2018 Mary Sarah Photography wedding, maternity, newborn, and engagement clients, we are […]
