- ABOUT Mary kate -


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 also shoot regularly in Oxford, Mississippi and New York. 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. Every session is an authentic experience, deserving of genuine, authentic care. I value client collaboration and ideas, anything to dream up your perfect vision! We’ll keep things laid back, fun, and relaxed so your confidence can tell the story through each photo.

My photography business means so much more to me than showing up and delivering. It is an opportunity to build new friendships, fall in love with new culture and ultimately, bless and serve my clients above and beyond. I would love to hear from you and start telling your story the way you imagine it.
