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!
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 […]
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. From a sweet first look, to an adorable ring bearer pup, to a super fun and energetic […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
Leslie and Andrew first met when they attended boarding school together years ago! They reconnected first at a reunion and then again years later, and I guess three time’s really the charm because it was after that third meeting that they realized there was something between them. All of my couples have their own unique […]
Bailey & Steve’s wedding was truly special. Brent and I have photographed a lot of weddings in our time, and we kept saying how perfect their wedding was last Saturday. The weather was gorgeous, the decorations were stunning, the timeline was relaxed and ran perfectly (largely thanks to their awesome planner, Gary) and the setting […]
