I'm Mary, the owner and only photographer of Mary Anastasia Photo! I love weddings, seeing how each couple defines their day and what special details are important to you. I love being able to share in that with my wonderful clients. Based out of Southeastern Michigan, I've been photographing weddings locally and all over the world for more than 6 years!
I got started in photography at my local animal shelter. I asked around and found out they needed someone to take adoption photos. I mean, free time with puppies and kittens and a chance to play with my new camera? SOLD! So I spent 4 years taking adoption photos, helping improve the adoption rate and learning how to pose with some very stubborn subjects. 6 years ago I photographed my first wedding, fell in love with wedding photography, and I never looked back! I've been exclusively a wedding and engagement photographer since.
When I'm not behind the camera, I'm usually watching movies with the love of my life and our two cats, Senneth and Duffy, and our puppy Chaplin. My favorite way to de-stress is playing video games. Skyrim is my favorite, and I'm a HUGE Harry Potter nerd, I could probably recite the books from memory! (and may or may not have a deathly hallows tattoo...) I love tacos and thai food, and there is nothing better in this world than coming home to puppy cuddles.
