Hi, there!

I'm Mary, the girl behind the camera (and in front of the computer) at M. Horton Photography! I'm a strong coffee lover, good book addict, reality TV watching (hello bachelor & bachelorette) kind of girl! On a typical day you can find me curled up on my couch next to our two adorable rescue pups (Nova & Henry), a cup of coffee in hand - enjoying time with my amazing hubby! 

A little background info...
I was born & raised in the beautiful Greenville, SC. I absolutely love this city and feel lucky to have spent the majority of my life here! I graduated from Winthrop University with a degree in Psychology (and my first rescue puppy, Nova). In the summer of 2011 I met my now husband (at a bar, who would have thought!) and somehow tricked him into marrying me a few years later. Shortly after, we added Henry to our fam- our second rescue pup! Needless to say…I'm one lucky girl!  

My style...
The best way to describe my style is soft, romantic and always focused on the details. I love finding the perfect angle or the best lighting that shows a different and new perspective. I live to capture the connections between people, showing the beauty of pure and raw emotions. There is something stunningly beautiful and vulnerable in those little moments. I also LOVE exploring nature, seeking out the most perfect petals on a flower or a powerful stream of water flowing boldly through the woods. My overall style and vision is to keep everything as soft, romantic and timeless as possible - all while having my finger on the pulse of current trends. My images are bursting with rich color and saturated in natural sunlight, highlighting crisp details & soft angles.

Now that you know about me...
Let's talk about you! Shoot me an email & let’s grab a cup of coffee! I would love to learn about you & your family or your next project that I can help capture.

I can’t wait to hear from you!
