About Seth & Mary

SETH {The talent}

Seth loves music.  Instrumental post rock music and a variety of screaming music that Mary hates.  He played in a band throughout high school whose dodgeball music video, featuring a dyed black haired Seth, is still hilarious. He loves tattoos and is constantly planning his next one. He has always had an eye for photography & loved his black and white film class in college. Still one of his favorite pictures, he took for that class on the beach shortly after he & Mary met. He loves photography and has an artistic personality but needed a kick in the pants to turn it into a career. Enter...

MARY {The go-getter}

Mary is the first born with the personality to match. Growing up, she ran the show, whether it was in the yard with her brother, leading the marching band or as the captain of the softball & volleyball teams. She loves sports and competitions of all shapes and sizes.  When Seth told her he wanted to be a photographer long ago on that beach, she made it happen.
Together they are the perfect team.
She'll tell you where to stand and he'll take a gorgeous picture.

When they aren't out photographing their good looking, awesome clients, they are likely playing tennis, hanging outside with their kids, cooking dinner together, rearranging their furniture or Mary is asking Seth how to spell something.

Seth & Mary were married in 2005 in Dekalb & lived in Ottawa, Illinois before moving to Peoria where they began their photography business. After their son was born in 2012, they decided to move back to Seth's hometown, closer to family, and continue their business serving Chicagoland, Starved Rock, & Peoria. They travel all over Central & Northern Illinois for photography clients. They have three beautiful children and found a new respect for family pictures as they watch their children grow. 

& Meet Stephanie {The Associate}


We also have an associate photographer, Stephanie. We met Stephanie when we shot her sister's wedding several years ago and bonded over music and arts and being all around hipsters. (Well, more Seth than Mary.) But she is fantastic photographer who shoots weddings and portraits in Central IL. She and her husband were taking on weddings as separate team for us the past couple years but her availability on Saturdays was basically nothing. Since Mary and Stephanie love working together, and now that we all have kids in school and activities, we decided to put together a kickass BOSS LADY package for Friday and Sunday weddings. If you are having a Friday/Sunday wedding, make sure to check out the special package in the weddings pricing button below. 


    All our prices include the edited digital images which we load in a gallery

    and you can then download the high resolution images to print, post, share and use for life.
