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.

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.

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 […]

Ally’s Senior Pictures Frederick MD


I can’t believe it’s already been almost 8 months since I photographed Ally’s Carroll Creek Downtown Frederick senior pictures! A lot has happened since then, and as a result Ally finally had time to pick out her favorites now that the craziness of online school is over. I love the images she chose and wanted […]
