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 […]
Jen and Vinod are just the absolute sweetest of couples. They compliment each other so well, were so warm and welcoming to me, one of the most polite couples I’ve ever met, and despite their nerves were willing to completely trust themselves in my hands. For their engagement shoot, I met up with them at […]
Oh man, I am so excited to bring you this engagement shoot. There are some couples who are so totally and completely in love that they can’t help but constantly be cuddling, kissing, and wrapping up in each other’s arms. Which can perhaps be a bit annoying when you’re the friend who is always having […]
Leslie and Andrew actually went to boarding school together and then ended up getting back in touch a few years ago! How cute is that? These two live in Gettysburg and recently purchased the James Gettys Hotel which they’re in the process of renovating WHILE planning a wedding. I do not envy them haha. It […]
Kelsey and Logan’s love story is the definition of fate. Kelsey was working late from her car in the area where Logan was the resident courtesy police officer. When Logan responded to a call for an “unfamiliar/suspicious vehicle,” little did he know that in that “suspicious vehicle” would be his future wife! Kelsey rolled down […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
Ben and Sarah met back in 2015 through the Bumble app and quickly discovered a shared love for traveling, spending time outdoors and on the water, and hanging out with friends and family. Since 2015, they have traveled to Vegas, Florida, Canada, Jamaica, and the Dominican Republic where Ben happened to pop the question on […]
Bailey and Steve couldn’t have asked for a prettier day for their Sugarloaf Mountain Engagement Shoot. After two months of almost straight rain, I was starting to wonder if I’d ever photograph outdoors again! Thankfully, they had a crisp fall afternoon with even a little sun at the beginning of the shoot. Bailey and Steve […]
