Our Wedding Planning, Part Two: Photographer serving PA, NJ, MD & DE, Photos by Mary

If you haven't seen my part one post about wedding planning, the exciting news is, my daughter is getting married! I get to experience wedding planning on a whole new level as Mother of the Bride!!!

We've gotten the venue squared away for our September 2021 wedding. It's The Washington at Historic Yellow Springs. It's a gorgeous historic venue! Definitely worth checking out if you're looking for a garden wedding with a rustic elegant feel. I'm very excited about it!

Now we have our photographer booked! 

Since I do bridal makeup professionally, I get to meet many photographers and see lots of different creative styles of photography.

There is the tradition style with very classic looking photos. There is a dramatic style that has a shadowy moodiness about it. There is a whimsical fairytale style. 

One of my bride's engagement and wedding photos had a fairytale quality to them. Emily literally looked like a princess in her engagement photo session! Here she is. I had the honor of doing her makeup for her engagement pics as well as on her wedding day.

Whatever the style, I feel the photos should capture not only the beauty of the wedding day but the deep emotion that goes along with it. For me, the emotion feeling in a photograph is what makes a photograph exceptional.

My daughter wants her wedding photos to have a beautiful, light, bright, airy quality. She doesn't seemed to be worried about the photos capturing emotion. That's all me. She will appreciate seeing the emotion when she looks back on her wedding photos one day, though.


We found Mary Blank, from Photos by Mary!!!

Mary creates the beautiful, light, airy photos that my daughter is looking for and also captures the emotion that I'm looking for, so both of us will be happy! She is a nature lover and has the ability to showcase it beautifully in her photography.

Mary based in Lancaster, Pa serving the Northeastern United States: Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland and Delaware. She also loves to travel and does destination weddings. Her prices fit right in our budget, too. She is lovely! We looking forward to working with her.

Here is some of her beautiful work.
