I'm Mary! I'm a 24 year old Fairbanks, Alaska local. I have my Bachelors of Fine Art with concentrations in Photography and Ceramics. I love art of all mediums, though documenting and creating art centering around people, and lifestyle have always been my forte. Photography really holds my heart because of the emotional pull of documenting life's most tender moments, but also the opportunity to create beautiful art within it. I also have strong interests in fashion and editorial art photography as well, and elements of that shine through my work.
I am a natural light, wedding, portrait, and commercial photographer, and have been creating art for the wonderful communities I find myself in since 2012. I am based in Fairbanks, Alaska; my childhood and home. Being able to create artful photographs for people has been one of my greatest successes and sources of happiness, and I wouldn't trade my job for any other. Each shoot is unique, and I strive to create beautiful documentation that is representative of my clients and models, with a touch of fine art.
I love to travel as much as I can, wherever I can. I have lived in a lovely, cozy, 1995 Airstream camper van, with my partner, since 2016. It fuels my passion for transient life and constant exploration. Because wedding season in Alaska is very seasonal, and mostly confined to the warmer months, in the winters you can usually find me working as a barista at my favorite local cafe. I love serving people in little ways - connecting with people a little bit each morning by making them their favorite cup of coffee. It truly makes me happy.
We will work great together if you love getting outside in the open air and natural light, believe that Black Lives Matter, aren't afraid to let your hair blow in the wind, get a little dirty, or hike a few minutes for the perfect location!

12 our if 5 stars! As a professional dance instructor it is so important to be able to work with someone who can capture movement as well as still life but Mary also has the eye to capture the beautiful candid shots which makes a huge difference! She is so easy to work with but also incredibly professional! Will always recommend her to anyone who needs just about ANYTHING photographed.

1000% recommend Mary! She took absolutely BEAUTIFUL photos of our wedding ceremony and reception in August. She is so talented, kind, creative, and was able to get photos of so many special moments! We couldn’t be happier with the way she helped to capture our wedding day!
Mary is truly so amazing!! She is so sweet! Very good at posing and telling you how to get your best photos! She pays attention to detail and delivers her photos in a timely manner! Not only has my experience been amazing with her but everyone I’ve referred to her say the same thing. She is simply AMAZING! Highly recommend her for any kind of photos that you may need!

Mary exceeded our expectations all around! Not only is she the sweetest, kindest person to work with, but her photography is absolutely breathtaking. Our wedding photos reflect the day just perfectly! We couldn’t have asked for more! Thank you again Mary
Truly the best... 10 out of 5 stars from us!!! Has a wonderful eye for detail, very relaxing demeanor and a fun joyful spirit..
Thank you Mary for such a awesome experience!!
In rain or shine, Mary Webb goes "above and beyond" to get that unique angle! She will go out of her way to give you the photo shoot you desire, and she's very affordable too. Thank you, Mary, for the incredible work you do!!
Mary took photos for my daughter and I. She was patient and understanding but also one of the most gifted artists I've seen with a lens. She truly captured a moment. She did an amazing job and everyone loved her work when I showed it off. Highly recommended.
Finding an affordable and great photographer was a big priority! Luckily we found Mary, she was so helpful the day of the wedding, even helped set up tables and made sure I was always taken care of! We lucked out. I has so many compliments after the wedding about her, and it was so nice to not worry about where our photographer was - whenever we needed her she was right there!
Mary is truly talented and worth every penny. We have done 2 family sessions with her and the final edits are absolutely gorgeous. I’m so thankful for the precious family moments she has turned into works of art Hire her!!!

Mary did an AMAZING job as our wedding photographer back in July! She was creative, professional and went above and beyond to make sure our day was as special as possible. She even help to bustle my dress throughout the night! I am so glad that I chose her and will definitely be booking her for photo sessions down the road. 100% recommend

If I could give more than 5 stars, I would!!! Mary did our engagement photos in November. It was snowing and freezing cold, but she took it like a champ and was totally professional! My fiancé and I are super camera shy and not super into PDA. She did an incredible job making us feel comfortable and helping us with poses, along with capturing beautiful candid shots. Her photos are STUNNING and her talent speaks for itself. But what I really appreciate is her communication, effort to get to know us personally, ability to adapt during chaotic times #covid, and enthusiasm for what she does. She’s THE BEST of the best. I cannot wait for her to do our wedding.

Mary recently shot our wedding and I cannot begin to put into words how wonderful she was in every way, but I will try. The photos she took were absolutely perfect. More than just capturing our big day though, she was a crucial asset to us! When some clouds came through she knew it would make for some cool moody shots and quickly directed us to a beautiful scene. She was prepared with a cute umbrella for us to hold. Those opportunity driven shots will go down as some as our favorites, all because of her. She seamlessly fit herself into our ceremony. One thing that I appreciated was how affirming she was the entire time. Before the ceremony while I ran around frantically taking care of last minute things, she found me to tell me how beautiful everything looked and how excited she was and how perfect it was going to be. The words of encouragement went a long way in calming all the nerves. During our couples shots she directed us so well, and complimented us. It was so nice to work with someone that truly is invested in what they do and have people skills! Mary was flexible and rolled with the punches of the day very well, and was always ready for the perfect shot. Booking Mary for a wedding doesn’t just mean you’re hiring a photographer to shoot some pictures, you’re hiring a team member. She was a valuable part of the whole thing coming together and my wife and I are happy that we can look back at the beautiful pictures she took for us and remember how nice it was to have worked with someone who truly exhibits care and love through their work. It shows in the quality of photos she takes, and the quality of human that she is. 10/10. We love Mary!

Mary is simply the best. My husband and I got married in July 2019 and absolutely love our photos. Mary was hired as a second shooter by our principal photographer Shiana Joy Photography. Shi was hired to do our ceremony and reception and when we asked for a second shooter during the ceremony she recommended Mary and I'm so thankful for it. Mary was wonderful to work with, aiding her fellow photographer while taking initiative with her own artistry. She has a graceful beauty about the way she works, blending in when she needs to and using authority to get the perfect shot (we had a huge wedding party and she knew just how to work em). Mary always finds the right angels and made all of us feel beautiful. I highly recommend Mary for weddings, portraits, events, anything! Thanks again Mary, we love our photos! 💜

Such amazing person AND she’s a magical photographer too!!! I feel like I gained a friend and an amazing artist!
She photographed my wedding and literally made me cry when I received my photos.
Me and my now husband have never done any photos ever in the 7 years we have been together.
All I can say is they were more than I could have ever expected.
She captured pure love and happiness. And captured my husbands genuine laugh and smile (which I have never been able to get with any attempt of mine) and it’s all I could ever ask for.
I would choose Mary all the time EVERY time for EVERY occasion.
Plus she’s reasonably priced. But I would pay billions for her work.
True artist with an amazing eye.
Even if you’re NOT photogenic like we’re lol.
Mary. We appreciate you more than you know.
- the Powers ❤️

I can't begin to say how AMAZING Mary is. She was one of the best choices we made in wedding planning. She went above and beyond for our wedding, she helped set up our venue, photograph, and made sure little details were taken care of. I have received so many compliments from everyone saying we had an amazing photographer. I think the best part was she was everywhere we needed her without ever having to look where our photographer might be. She is the friendliest, loving, down to earth person ever. She listens, she cares, and is professional. She has also done family photos for us and all of the same. Provides direction, takes time, and thoroughly enjoys capturing the beauty and happiness of people. We love everything about Mary, and you will too! <3
Mary Webb was professional and very friendly, which is important to me. My daughter got Senior pictures taken and she absolutely loved them all. All pictures were flattering and really captured my daughter's personality. It will be difficult to pick out the best one for her yearbook, cause they all are very good. Thanks Mary!

Shooting with Mary was nothing less than amazing! She’s an outrageously good hype girl and left us feeling so good about ourselves. I‘m privileged to have been able to shoot with her, totally in awe of the work she produces. 🧡

She quietly and without fanfare captured the joy, beauty, and love at the wedding celebration. Not only did she take stunning and magazine worthy photos of the wedding party but she also took candid once in a lifetime photos of the wedding guests to treasure.
