ABOUT MM

Mary Margaret SmithHello! My name is Mary Margaret, but feel free to call me MM! :)

You’ve probably heard the quote that if you do something you love you won’t work a day in your life. This is so true! My “job” doesn’t feel like work because I have such a great time doing it! I realized early on that my favorite photography involves people. It is a great honor to be able to capture significant moments in their lives, and I feel lucky that I get to spend time with couples who are getting together to celebrate their marriage with everyone they know and love. I enjoy participating in the excitement of a wedding day, and I think the best days are those when everyone has FUN. I love working with creative people who want their wedding and photography to reflect them as a couple.

One question I often get from potential brides and grooms is to describe my shooting style. I definitely lean towards the documentary side of photography, capturing natural moments as they happen. I have a fairly hands-off approach to shooting and I aim for each set of wedding images to realistically portray the day. My goal is to tell the story of your wedding day as it unfolds. I love candid moments, and I also consider the details (large and small!) to be very important. I hope that when couples look back through their images it will feel like they are living the day all over again. Or, for anyone who couldn’t make it, living it for the first time!

I hope this has helped give a little insight into my process. If you have any questions, feel free to shoot me a message!

*I am currently located in Birmingham, Alabama, but also welcome any opportunities to shoot in different locations. :)
