"Dear Mary-Anne, Thank you MILLIONS for our wonderful photos capturing our magical day. We were so lucky to find you, you were AMAZING! We love the vintage look, and that's exactly what you captured. It felt like a dream, so to look back on what you captured is truly wonderful. You were very punctual and arrived 1 hour early, which was very professional as our venue was not easy to find.
When you arrived you started creating your magic and getting creative with your shots,Your use of light and creativity captures a stunning photo. You have created simply stunning photos and we cant thank you enough. Time flew bye and the day was over so quickly, we wished you stayed longer to party with us all. We wish you a long and happy future in photography.
You are so talented and i will recommend you to everyone.
Muchos Gracios Lotsa Love, Mr and Mrs White xx"

"I was lucky enough to find Mary-Anne in the Emerald Street blog and took an instant liking to her. She is so bubbly, has a gorgeous smile and extremely knowledge about photography which put me at ease as wedding photos allow your special day to be with you forever.
She gives so much of her precious time before the day to make sure she knows exactly what you want and we also spoke about locations to photograph as my venue was amongst the great artwork of Shoreditch. On the day Mary-Anne and her Assistant Photographer Ollie took the most fabulous photos, they did not take over, made everyone feel hugely relaxed and it felt like two friends were capturing the most important day of our lives – thank you."

"We feel so lucky to have found Mary-Anne to be our engagement and wedding photographer. Our engagement photo session in Kew Gardens was absolutely perfect. Even with light rain, she made us both feel great and the outcome was beautiful.
We will look at these photos for the rest of our lives; they are so precious in their meaning. Her attention to detail and creativity have truly made these photos priceless to us. Thank you, Mary-Anne! See you at our Wedding!!"
Vanina & Joe
I wanted to say a huge HUGE thank you for the beautiful pictures I received in the post yesterday, I can't stop looking at them, they are just so perfect and capture the happy day so well! I am so glad we found you, your smile and enthusiasm made our big day even more special, and so many people commented on how lovely you were.
We will cherish your beautiful pictures for ever and ever xx"
Lisa & Ian
Thank you so much for sending us the disks. We had so much fun looking at them. You captured us, our family and friends perfectly. When we looked through them we realised how much we had enjoyed our days and how perfect it all was. We are sad that the celebrations are finished but thank god for you and your fantastic photography.
We are so glad we stumbled across your details on the web and thank our lucky stars that were free to work with us. You are a warm and very talented person and you took the exactly the pictures that we wanted, It was like you sprinkled everyone with fairy dust, your camera has captured us all with such joy and love. You can clearly see how happy we were. Thank you so, so much. "

"It was because of Mary-Anne’s beautiful pictures that we were so happy that she would be photographing our wedding. Regarding her character we couldn’t have made a better choice. She was at the venue early and took care to ensure that we all were perfectly at ease. Our ceremony room was very small but we were hardly aware of her presence.
Mary-Anne is tactful and unobtrusive. She let us be, while capturing our feelings on the day. As we walked around Bristol’s cobbled streets and parks she occasionally gave subtle creative direction, which we felt was entirely judged to our taste, which she had discussed with us before the event.
We felt entirely in our comfort zone with Mary-Anne photographing us; it was simply a lovely experience, while our wedding pictures denote great work. They are editorial, naturally artistic and above all personal.
Mary-Anne weaves friendliness, love and emotional intelligence through her subtle reportage style, and we wouldn’t hesitate to hire her again. Even the packaging she delivered the DVD in made us smile.
Thank you Mary-Anne.
Oliver & Leya. Xx"

"What can we say, apart from Mary-Anne is absolutely amazing! Book her! We were so lucky to have found such a talented photographer to shoot our wedding day. She captured effortlessly so many special moments from our day that we will cherish forever. The day went by so quickly and in a very happy and excited blur for us - like a dream, but we now have the most beautiful collection of images to remember the day forever. From artistic romantic shots to funny and cheeky shots of our guests, everything was covered. Mary-Anne's photography really captured the joy and happiness on the day.
Mary-Anne was a delight to have around on the day, snapping away unobtrusively with a smile on her face. A highly creative and inspiring photographer who works with such enthusiasm. Her images are really special, not to mention her magical golden hour shots!
We are so happy with our wedding images.
You are so talented Mary-Anne and we will be recommending you to everyone.
Thank you so much.
Kate and Shaun

We have just received our wedding pictures back and it was so lovely (and emotional) reliving the day. Mary-Anne's lighting is beautiful and she managed to capture all the emotions of the wedding. Being a fashion editor I am particularly picky about images! But I am delighted with our photos.
Mary-Anne went beyond the call of duty when we had a little issue with the driver of my car, she saved the day by directing him where to go (not to mention helping me with an little underwear hiccup as I was getting into my dress - I only had young flower girls so it was great she was onboard not to mention female! to help with this)

Adelaide & John
Here are some comments from John and I - we LOVE our wedding pictures, thank you so much! I honestly can't tell you how wonderful they are, you have exceeded all our expectations… ADELAIDE - Looking through our photos is almost as much of a joy as the day itself. But on top of that we have the luxury to look again and again. Maryanne captured amazing moments we didn't have the chance to see on the day. She got it all, the funny, the poignant, the romantic. She did exactly what we'd hoped, and a whole lot more. We will treasure these images for the rest of our lives. Thank you Maryanne! JOHN - Maryanne went way beyond the call of duty on our wedding day and our photos are fantastic. Dancing in and out of the guests with her camera taking snaps all the while without people being overly conscious of her presence. Maryanne worked tirelessly throughout the day, corralling people into position and styling the shots. She is a wonderful, passionate person and it was a pleasure to have her at our wedding.”
Lauren & Greg
"We had spent a while looking for the right wedding photographer, we wanted someone that would suit our informal, low-key style on the day, but yet would still capture some really stunning imagery in a very short space of time!
Mary-Anne was perfect for the job, she understood we didn't want to spend hours on the photos of the two of us but made some great suggestions for shots that have ended up being some of our favourites as well as capturing a great selection of our family and guests.
She was very professional and a very calming presence on the day which was exactly what we needed! We would definitely recommend her to our friends, the end result was fabulous, really natural, intimate and polished - exactly what we wanted!"

"Mary -Anne is talented, creative and has a natural ability to create beautiful pictures. We were immediately drawn to her soft, fresh and vintage style which we thought went perfectly with our ‘Yellow and Grey’ summer wedding.
She arrived early and immediately started taking pictures discreetly whilst I was getting ready. Her relaxed and kind demeanour made me feel completely at ease as if it were one of my good friends with me, helping me get ready.
Throughout the day, her passion and commitment to her work was evident and she captured so many special and candid moments that we will treasure forever. She even managed to include all of our extensive family and friends in the group photos which was very important for my mother and did an amazing job to achieve this to make sure we were happy.
We received our DVD in a cute little wooden box, beautifully presented and wrapped with ribbon which made us feel like every detail had been carefully thought of for us. The photos were beautiful, classic and professional and we can’t wait to have them printed to show to all our friends and family.
We highly recommend Mary-Anne and are so thankful to have had her as our photographer for our special day.
Thanks a million,
Marlon & Suzy”
Phil & Hannah
"We chose Mary-Anne because the photos in her portfolio seemed more natural and captured moments rather than lots of formal group photos that you may see from other photographers.
We are very pleased when the photos were delivered. There were moments captured that we had missed from the wedding and certainly plenty of photos that we didn't notice being taken.
Mary-Anne is very enthusiastic and motivated and worked hard for the whole day. She is professional, experienced and takes one of the stresses out of getting married.
Phil & Hannah."
Anthony & Hannah
"Mary-Anne provided truly fantastic service and some stunning images from our day. It has been a pleasure looking over the images and reliving the day -- seeing the little details and conversations we missed as well as the ones we remembered.
We were struck by just how much sunshine, joy and laughter she was able to capture, managing to snap everyone in their happiest moments. Her documentary style photography was exactly what we were looking for and she managed the perfect balance of being able to assemble and direct large groups for posed photos and being able to unobtrusively capture moments later on.
Her use of light and the feel of her images are truly timeless. We feel very lucky that we managed to find her and we know we would have been hard pressed to find anyone else who could have done as good a job. Thanks Mary-Anne!"
Martha & David
"We can almost consider Mary-Anne our family photographer now as she has been 'The Capturer of Memories' at both mine and my sister's weddings. We so loved Phoebe and Jay's photos; the warm tones, the perfect timing, and the range of emotions perfectly snapped, that we didn't need to do any research for our own wedding photographer. She was our obvious go-to-girl.
One of the things we loved most about Mary-Anne was how she fitted herself in to the family vibe so perfectly but kept a discrete, fly-on-the-wall approach the whole day. She managed to miraculously control a huge rabble of 145 excited people, including 25 small kids, for fantastic group shots, and somehow got us to look natural in our couple shots despite us being really awkward models.
We will treasure our photos forever and can't stop looking at them. We will always be able to look back on the day and remember the moments and feelings as if we were actually there again, thanks to Mary-Anne's natural talent and perception, and they will be our windows to our memories when we are old and senile. We will be ever grateful."
Kate & Will - Engagement shoot
I just wanted to drop you an e-mail to thank you for the photos we received this weekend. The presentation box is gorgeous and the photos left us totally speechless! We have spent a good portion of the weekend just going through them with our families and they are similarly overwhelmed.
We wouldn’t class ourselves as particularly photogenic nor do we feel that comfortable in front of the camera, Will even less than me. However you’ve done the most incredible job of making us look the best I’ve ever seen us in photos whilst also making us feel completely relaxed. I am totally at ease knowing that you will be capturing our wedding in exactly the way I would like and that sense of relief is totally priceless!
I hope you have a wonderful summer and we both wish you the very best of luck for your upcoming wedding.
Kate and Will xx”

It was easily the best day of our lives, and you've captured the whole thing absolutely perfectly - the pictures are gorgeous. From arriving early to leaving late, and interpreting exactly what we wanted, we were really impressed, and will definitely be recommending you to all our friends!
Thank you for helping to create such happy memories that will last forever."

I'm just writing to let you know that the pictures arrived safely on Saturday. We sat down on Sunday to look through them and we absolutely loved them :) they are what we imagined they would be and so much more! I was jumping up and down on the sofa as we looked through them shouting "this one is my favourite!", "oh no this one!", "changed my mind, this one!" :)
Thank you so much for them. We can't wait for you to capture our wedding day in June :)
Lots of love,
Marta and Hayden”

Thank you x x x & we will be sure to recommend you, to all of our friends and family for future weddings x x"

"What can we say! Mary-Anne is the best photographer ever! Non intrusive, creative, natural and was so friendly and chatty, everyone commented on how hard Mary-Anne worked and she was not intrusive at all! All the photos were natural which fitted in with our theme exactly!"
