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.
I'm so glad you're here! Browse the latest posts on photography education!
A couple weeks ago I had the privilege of meeting beautiful little Bellamy Ryan Gaines who was just 8 days young! As a photographer, it brings me no greater joy than to photograph the most important moments in someone’s life, and I have loved getting the opportunity to photograph first William as a newborn, then […]
I hope everyone is staying safe, healthy, and sane! These past few days have been crazy and I’m so sad I will have to pause doing photo shoots until non-essential businesses are allowed to resume – especially with all the gorgeous spring blooms we’re experiencing right now! Still, I’m thankful that right now we’re healthy, […]
Lately I’ve been doing a lot of maternity and engagement shoots, so when my good friend Brittany asked me to do a newborn shoot I jumped at the chance! Sweet baby Andie had just turned one month old and her cuteness was overwhelming. Like all my lifestyle newborn shoots, I met Brittany and Justin at […]
Have I mentioned just how much I adore maternity shoots? They’re quickly becoming my absolute favorite type of photography, especially as my mamas try out more and more of my new gowns from my client closet. I also love when I get to document repeat clients and be a part of memorializing all their precious […]
Now that I have finally entered the “slow season” in the life of a wedding photographer (aka that time when it’s so freezing out that no one wants to take pictures) I’m catching up on a few photo shoots I didn’t have time to blog this past season. Up first is a stunning styled shoot […]
Ray and Cristina’s Ceresville Mansion wedding wedding was literally out of a Christmas fairy tale. With the roaring fireplace, glittering snowflakes, Mr. & Mrs. stockings, Christmas music, and adorable centerpieces featuring buffalo plaid, burlap, reindeer, nutcrackers, and cookie jars, they truly captured the Christmas spirit. When I first walked into their Ceresville Mansion reception I […]
I couldn’t have picked a better wedding to end the 2019 season. It was such a special blessing getting to photograph Rachael & Jeff’s Rockwood Manor wedding. Rachael and her brother Zach lived down the street from me growing up, and I always viewed them as honorary little siblings. (As if I didn’t have enough!) […]
Kelsey & Logan’s wedding was a beautiful testament to the fact that marriage is more than just the union of two people, but also the union of two families. I had the privilege of meeting the Carpenters five years ago when they hired me to photograph their daughter, Lindsey’s wedding, and then we realized that […]
I so enjoyed getting to meet Amanda, Ryan, and their sweet dog Capitol during their gorgeous Harpers Ferry engagement shoot. The sun was shining but the air was pretty dang cold, yet Amanda still rocked a summer dress and looked absolutely stunning in it. (Don’t worry, we threw a coat on her every time we […]
High school sweethearts, John and Abby met when they were sixteen years old and have been together ever since. Abby’s favorite favorite place on earth is Disney World, so John thought up the perfect proposal and surprised Abby by getting down on on one knee during the night time fireworks show in front of Cinderella’s […]
