My fiancée, Taylor and I waited for months to take our engagement pictures. We were ready to snap the mementos that would be on our mantels forever but felt as though we had not found the right venue or photographer, until Pamela recommended her dear friend Mary. I personally have had many pictures taken by professional photographers, including my senior high school photos and various different photos at family member’s weddings, but no one has ever made me feel as comfortable as Mary. She never asked us to pose in ways that felt forced, rather she relied on the love that Taylor and I obviously shared to guide the session in a way that lent itself to introspective shots that I could not cherish more. I know at times I was difficult, but Mary showed extensive levels of patience and dedication; she truly cares about the people she photographs and connects on intimate level. I will continue to look back on our session with fondness and the pictures she captured with love and passion.
