Hello! I'm Mary, founder of Chocolate Paper Studios, a group of photographers who love not only chocolate, but more importantly documenting ALL the love stories that come our way! Every couple is unique and no two weddings are the same, so I approach every wedding with an open eye and my love for the craft in my pocket. I strive to create timeless images, while capturing the wealth of emotions that can happen throughout a wedding day in a way that is unique to each couple. I truly enjoy what I do and feel honored to be chosen to document such momentous occasions in peoples' lives.
Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?
I am based in the Northern Kentucky/Greater Cincinnati area and will travel outside the area for an additional fee, based on the amount of travel time required.
How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?
I started photography with Chocolate Paper Studios in 2016 and have been the main photographer for over 80 weddings and counting!
Describe your "style" of wedding photography.
Timeless photographs with a mix of traditional, posed portraits and documentary-style images that go together to tell the story of your big day.
What's the typical wedding coverage package that you offer? What is the price?
Our most popular wedding package includes 8 hours day-of coverage with me as your lead photographer, a second photographer, online gallery, slideshow and an engagement session for 2,750 (we also offer a package with my husband's DJ company that gives you 500 off my photography services)
Do you have a studio where we can meet? Do you use Skype?
I've been meeting couples virtually since the beginning of 2020.
What are your professional degrees, credentials, affiliations? Have you taken any recent educational workshops or classes?
Bachelor of Fine Arts, member of The Wedding School, constantly learning and perfecting my craft
Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself?
I fully support all couples who are in love and feel everyone has the right to love, be loved, and spend the rest of their lives together as a married couple if they want to.
