Iceland, 2016

Hi, Iā€™m Mary Ella! I am a photographer and artist currently living on Maryland's eastern shore and working in the many places my camera gear and wanderlust take me. 

While pursuing a degree in fine art photography from the Savannah College of Art and Design, I began photographing intimate beach weddings barefoot in the Georgia sunshine. I instantly fell in love with telling people's stories through images, and haven't looked back since. 

My joy of capturing and sharing genuine moments follow me to all shoots, from the biggest of wedding days to the tiniest new additions to families. I always bring a fun, comfortable, and candid approach to shooting that will have you laughing and living in each precious moment. I've worked worldwide with families, chefs, media publication groups, clothing companies, designers, artists - I even got a pretty sweet gig snowmobiling on top of a glacier with my camera on-hand, but that's a story for another time. No job is too big or too small if it's a chance to collaborate and make some photographic magic.

Please use the form below to contact me - I'd love to work with you to tell your story!
