HELLO darling, 

~ I’m Mary Kate. I am a Memphis, TN & Lancaster, PA based destination wedding & fashion photographer, specializing in film-inspired, natural light, fine art photography. ~

I've been shooting weddings for over 7 years and absolutely love what I do! I love the adventurous, timeless bride or couple who values tradition, but also appreciates going off the beaten path. My business started out as a passionate hobby and very quickly grew into the business it is today. I like to describe my style as romantic, elegant, timeless, with a touch of adventure. Jane Austin, specifically the book, Pride & Prejudice, is where I find a lot of my inspiration. For me, the story, your story is key. Whether it’s your wedding day, your fashion blog or a fun family photo shoot, I aim to capture every detail and bring your event or session to life.

My own story started in the charming little town of Lititz, Pennsylvania, which still holds a precious place in my heart today. A new chapter of life brought me to college in Memphis, Tennessee. I've built a home here and have filled pages with laughs and adventures. My favorite adventure so far is being a Mom! I’m inspired daily by my sweet little boy, Mark and adorable Golden Retriever, Trevor.  I’m a down to earth girly girl who loves shopping, mountains, coffee shops, visiting National Parks and all things classy, pink, and Kate Spade. 

In 2011, I purchased my first camera. My hobby quickly turned into a part-time business, and finally launched into full-time in 2015.

This little business has taken me all over the country capturing incredible love stories. There are so many elements I love about my business, but my heart loves all the amazing relationships I've made with each of my clients. It is because of this business that I've been blessed to have incredible clients grow into friendships. My once passionate hobby has now turned into a passion to serve my clients and provide them with the special experience they deserve to have during such an exciting time in their lives! I am so thankful for clients who trust me and welcome me into their lives. I love learning about their love story and what they cherish about each other. I love to share in their joy, and to celebrate with them! I am so lucky to do what I do. I would love to hear from you and start telling your story the way you imagine it.

XOXO
