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.

Annapolis Engagement Photos

Jennifer and Bobby met at a college Christmas party hosted by a mutual friend.  Bobby pursued her, but after a bout with the flu and a lackluster first date looking at Christmas lights, Jennifer nearly moved on.   Thankfully, Bobby convinced Jennifer to visit him for his New Years Eve party, where they really hit it […]

An Intimate Elopement | Maryland Wedding Photographer

Weddings

There are some couples you just click with, and Janelle and Brandon are definitely one of those couples. When we first met up together for happy hour, what was supposed to be an hour turned into two because we were just having so much fun. It’s literally impossible to have a conversation with them without […]

Ally’s Senior Pictures Frederick MD

Seniors

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 […]

Northern VA maternity photographer

Three months ago, Kayla reached out to me and indicated her desire to have maternity pictures taken in Northern VA. Due to the quarantine, she hadn’t been able to share the majority of her pregnancy with her family who live in the south, and she wanted a maternity shoot to commemorate this special time of […]

Beautiful Fall DC Engagement Photos

engagements

I’m kicking myself for not blogging these beautiful DC engagement photos sooner! In the chaos of fall wedding season, I occasionally get behind in blogging and just realized today that I never shared Travis and Lauren’s stunning Lincoln Memorial engagement shoot with you. The plan had been to meet at the Jefferson Memorial and spend […]

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 […]

Loudoun County Wedding Photographer | Fall Country Engagement Photos

engagements

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, […]

Newborn Photographer Frederick MD | Northern Virginia Newborn Photographer

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 […]

Maternity Photographer Frederick MD | Frederick Photographer

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 […]

Bowling Brook Mansion Wedding

Weddings

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 […]
