Mary Cyrus' Summary

I'm a photographer and business owner based in the Dallas, Texas area. I specialize in creating down-to-earth, beautifully candid imagery. I photograph weddings, events, and a variety of portrait sessions, including families, children, babies, high school senior portraits, couples, maternity, engagement portraits, bridal portraits, pets, lifestyle sessions and more.

Since 2010, I've documented dozens of weddings in Dallas and in far flung places like Scotland, Florida, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Houston & Austin. Nearly every weekend, and some week days in between, I'm out capturing portrait sessions somewhere in the DFW metroplex.

With previous experience as the Head of Photography for a national retail chain, I am now serving my own clients full time.
