mary claire roman, california raised, with a wandering heart, and an urge to document anything and everything.
hi! i'm mary claire. i'm a wedding, portrait, & lifestyle photographer in sunny southern california. some of the things i love include (but are not limited to):
+ humans. my greatest passion in life is people. classic ESFJ.
+ dogs. specifically, big dogs. even more specifically, golden retrievers. let's talk about it.
+ traveling. my work has taken me across the world, and i'm always looking forward to the next adventure (hint: i have a current passport and offer special rates for destination weddings!)
+ coffee. capuccino, latte, or black, it doesn't matter. i reaally love coffee.
+ making friends & collecting memories. see first bullet point.
i love art, and i love people, so becoming a visual journalist was really the only option for me. it makes a lot of sense, after all. i harbor a relentless desire to photograph faces, stories, lives. i am obsessed with capturing and preserving the perfectly imperfect essence of humans, in all their flawed, authentic glory, not to neatly summarize them in a series of trite adjectives, but to continue, for as long as i shall live, to do my part to help build upon and add to these stories. that is the greatest thing about human beings; we are never finished.
i create because i was first created, and ultimately, i aim to portray the magnificence and wonder of this world, the greatest piece of artwork known to man. thank you for stopping by, and remember to celebrate the whole world.
