My love of photography started just by photographing my own children when they were young. I have grown through experience and education into both a portrait and landscape photographer. I feel the same passion photographing a wedding or family portrait as I do capturing the landscape of Alaska. The end result puts a smile on someone’s face every time!

Lovejoy Photography and Heritage Maker works with all ages to capture their memories so that they can tell their story later in life. Our goal is to not have you spend more on photography services than is necessary. Working with clients to script their day helps to determine what is most important to our clients , develop ways to save money,  and most of all, how to balance the two.

My style of photography is unique. Although I ultimately work within my clients guidelines, I prefer to take candid shots versus traditional staged photography, which allows me to capture special moments rather than styling photos. I don’t edit my shots other than occasionally cropping and shifting images. The perfection is in the shot! The images I shoot belong to my clients and all of my photography work is done at a location of my client’s choosing.


Mary Beth took our family photos in August at Star Lake in the Adirondacks. She made the session fun and we were all relaxed. Mary Beth also provided us with suggestions in advance so that we were ready to go the morning of the shoot. We received a number of awesome photos to choose from. Thank you Mary Beth for making my goal of having family photos a reality. – Deb

I just wanted to say thank you so much for our pictures. Seeing the final product and all the moments that you captured that we never even knew took place. Pictures of the kids and our family. It was amazing! The special video that you created for us to complete all the memories was such a delightful surprise. Thank you again for being a part of our special day! Can’t wait to do Christmas pictures. – Brenda

Mary Beth Lovejoy was wonderful to work with as my wedding photographer.  From the start, I felt very comfortable just being myself around her.  We discussed what I wanted ahead of time and she really accommodated to what I envisioned.  She even went to visit the wedding venue before the event to scope out the best places to take the photos.  She had a plan and I just went along with it (I’m not a great planner), and it worked out great.  Formal picture taking was very efficient, just like I wanted, and she took great candid photos. The pictures came out fantastic.  They have a soft light, beautiful colors, and the focus is on everyone’s happy faces.  She is a very talented photographer and a pleasure to work with! – Olga
