 I wanted to say to anyone who is debating on which photographer to use, please take the time to contact Mari with By Your Side to discuss your needs. Your mind will truly be made up after your conversation with her, that you have found exactly what you are looking for. When I was looking for vendors for everything that I needed – dress, venue, cake, flowers, DJ, caterer, photographer/videographer…it was quite overwhelming for all the offerings provided. I was also dependent on reviews to help me decipher based on what others had experienced during their dealings and interactions with the vendors. And, these helped me to set vendors apart for who were the cream of the crop versus vendors in which I may be concerned about using on a special day. After speaking with Mari I knew that I didn’t want to go with any other photographer and had my heart set.
Mari & her husband are the perfect team to walk you through your day and capture every shot imaginable that you could ever hope for or request. They are patient, helpful, sincere, professional & great at what they do. It was an absolute pleasure to be able to work with them as they made my evening even more special!
Please take the time to read my experience, as I know you will have a positive feeling as well!

Mari and her husband were wonderful. Weddings can be very stressful times, but these two make this part of the experience very easy. We met with them multiple times before hand and they were so pleasant we spent much of the time simply talking about life and relationships. The day of the wedding went smoothly thanks to their guidance. Not only did they help us move things along and get the pictures we needed to very quickly, but they also gave us the freedom to ad-lib if necessary. They were present for every important moment and all the less noticeable ones on your wedding day, while not being overly pushy and sometimes fading into the background. They allowed us to enjoy our wedding day while still capturing the moments that made the day so special.

This couple was so amazing to work with. They not only were affordable but also produced incredible photos. I used them for my bridals as well and their artistic views helped to add so much to the photos that we will cherish forever!

Mari and James are not only wonderful photographers but they are great people. We enjoyed getting to know them and are blessed they were our photographers at our wedding! They were so patient and thoroughly explained what to expect that day. Very easy to communicate with and fast responses. We felt like were in great hands!


They were really nice, professional, and easy to work with. They were a very calming presence during pictures and didn't make it very stressful. They know what they are doing and did a great job capturing our event. Price point was unbeatable as well. Saved over 50% over most other options and didn't lose anything in the way of ability.


I loved these guys! They made me feel so comfortable on the day of and we're basically flies on the wall. They worked together so well and I'm in love with my pictures!! Their pricing is amazing compared to other people I looked at and in my opinion did a much better job!
