MARY WYAR PHOTOGRAPHY
Welcome! Meet our Team!
We are Toledo, Ohio based wedding photography creatives here to tell your story through modern and artistic imagery.
Most of our Toledo wedding couples are not local and, as you’ll see below, we love to travel. Mary will happily hop on a plane or drive our Hybrid car for a couple whose love story is inspiring.
We tell wedding day stories that will make you smile, give you goosebumps and instantly take you back to that moment in time when you were feeling all the feels.
If the work you see on the website inspires you & is the style you’d love to enjoy for decades… please say hello & tell us more about your love story & big day!
OWNER + LEAD PHOTOGRAPHER
I am mama to two boys so I know way too much about Star Wars and Transformers. I am obsessed with mid century modern design and architecture. I’ve seen every Wes Anderson film in the theater (minus Bottle Rocket). Happily a #YouWillDoBetterInToledo advocate and although I am based in the midwest, I happily travel all over for couples who inspire me!
I don’t take myself too seriously but I take my business and my work very seriously… except when I’m not being serious because I also love sarcasm. I love meeting with couples, hearing their stories and bringing out the best in them while in front of the camera. Sunsets are magical on wedding days and sunrises are amazing for engagement sessions. I want our time together to be an amazing experience that will forever change your mind on ‘not being photogenic’.
I am a band wife, he’s lead guitar (swoon). There’s not much I wouldn’t do for peanut butter and chocolate. Classical music puts me in my happy place. I’m a bookworm who prefers her books printed & bound. I can still quote the Princess Bride in its entirety.
TOLEDO OHIO WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY MODERN ARTISTIC
Artistic + Modern
Wedding photography that is modern + artistic. Thoughtfully directed but not overly posed… with a good mix of classic, fun, experimental portraits. Authentically you.
AUTHENTIC + FUN
Engagement photos are your opportunity to have fun, natural photos. We like for them to be very sentimental, in a setting that means something to you, doing something that feels like a day being documented.
Live out of town? I have a hybrid car & am not afraid to hop on a plan to visit your city!
I’d love to hear more about your wedding day or other photo needs!
Please let us know if you are not local to Toledo, planning from out of town, etc. We typically FaceTime or Skype with those couples not in Toledo.
We do not email pricing lists prior to meeting… we find that typically raises additional questions. We want to show you the lovely albums + books all Mary Wyar Photography couples receive!
We are so looking forward to hearing from you!!!
Wedding Collections. Investment. Travel.
Wedding Collections Include...
All of our collections include plenty of time on your wedding day, engagement session, a custom designed album (your first family heirloom!), online proofing & more!
Your high resolution, digital negatives are edited for color and exposure but do not have any additional retouching to them. We want to get your photos to you as fast as possible to begin your album design process. Wasting time editing photos you don’t absolutely love, doesn’t make any sense.
When you receive your digital negatives, they will be on a flash drive and you’ll also receive a personal usage license to get any prints made on your own.
When do we see our photos?
Following the wedding, we want you to experience your wedding photos for the first time within 3-4 weeks from the big day. No waiting months and months to see your proofs! We also try to post a few sneak peeks on social media 1-2 weeks after the wedding.
Engagement photos take 1-2 weeks to complete and Save the Dates have a super fast turn around time.
Can you send me your prices?
Sending you a bullet point list of our collections with a price at the top would raise many more questions. I like to walk you through the wedding collections, show you the gorgeous, high quality albums we include and discuss options.
Meeting your photographer in person is crucial to seeing if you’re a good fit for one another. Feeling comfortable with your photographer is more important than loving their work.
Do you travel?
Mary is based in Toledo, Ohio but is happy to travel wherever for badass weddings! I am happy to hop on a plane or drive my hybrid car for couples who I adore and I will have a fun time photographing!
What are your travel fees?
We photograph weddings throughout the midwest + beyond! Instead of nickel and diming you for travel fees, we just alter our pricing based on wedding location.
Mary + Team
For every wedding Mary photographs, you will also have an assistant photographer. While our assistant may have a camera and take photos throughout your wedding, our assistant’s real job is assisting. Helping setup a shot, carry gear, having an eye for detail for our couples… straightening the wedding dress, notice cuffs, etc.
Associate Photographer is a yucky word. It makes it sound like our associate photographer isn’t as great as Mary.
Our associate photographers each have their own vision, style of working and unique personalities that come through in their portfolio.
Anyone working at Mary Wyar Photography will be a photographer who Mary would trust in photographing any life event. You’ll be in the best hands. You will also receive the customer service and high quality products that MWP is known for.
