With a focus on guided portraits, Mary Ann seamlessly illustrates moments crafted with intentionality and a keen awareness of posing balanced with unrehearsed captures. Aiming for a classic narrative between her couples, she photographs the genuine moments you two share with each other. Mary Ann has dedicated her lifetime to fine art mediums first in ballet and musical theater, and now in photography, which is reminiscent of her knowledge of composition, artistry, choreography, and the delicate balance of honoring magic that happens in the unseen moments.

the approach

With over a decade of experience in photography, I offer a perspective that is fresh and timeless, allowing for your moments to be defined by your connection through my artistic compositions.

Rest assured that I am committed to not only delivering captivating photographs but also to creating a positive and relaxing atmosphere. I strive to make you feel at ease in front of the camera. As a dedicated Colorado wedding photographer, I find great joy in capturing the essence of love amidst the breathtaking backdrop of the mountains.

why film?

I seamlessly blend digital and medium format film photography. 

Working with film allows for intentional moments to unfold with beautiful results. Film allows for a slow process during each session and evokes a sense of nostalgia with each print. The beauty of film is irreplaceable allowing your most cherished memories to remain timeless and authentic.
