Welcome, I’m Mary Lee!
Hey guys, my name is Mary Lee! I am an Atlanta based Professional Photographer with an energetic and light soul. I spend most my time traveling to new places, going to concerts or music festivals, or playing catan with my friends. I absolutely love being outdoors as well as living in a city! The highlight of 2018 was probably the night I spent dancing with all of my friends at a James Brown cover band show and I definitely dressed up for the part. If you love any part of that, I think we’ll get along perfectly!
My photography journey has a very special story. I was adopted as a baby and have been blessed with an amazing family! Although, growing up I always knew I needed to meet my birth mom to help me feel grounded in where I came from. Fast forward to 13 years old, I picked up my mom’s point and shoot camera and started taking photos of nature all the time. Around the age of 15 years old, without telling me, my mom started to reach out to my birth mom to grow closer with her before I was the appropriate age to meet her. She found out all these amazing details about her we never knew. My mom came home with a Nikon DSLR camera and a couple lenses to help me start my photography hobby which was amazing! On my 16th birthday, my mom tells me everything. She tells me she’s met my birth mother, that she is professional photographer nearby (WHAT?!), and has helped her find equipment to start my photography hobby. My birth mom was this huge part of finding my passion and I had no idea. It was the best gift my mom and birth mom could have ever given me! All throughout high school, I attended photography workshops, and eventually went to art school to find my calling.
Meeting new people and creating a connection is one of the main reasons I love photography. My goal is that each photograph I create touches a soul in a special and unique way. I want you to feel love through my photographs. No matter if it’s a wedding or a corporate holiday party, senior portrait session or field day for a sports team, bachelorette party or engagement session. I guarantee you will have creative photos while having the time of your life!
