Merry Character Photography began in 2011 when I, Mary, was nineteen. I created an idea into a passion which quickly turned into a business that has taken me across the world. Built on the foundation of serving clients with kindness & an abundance of joy, Merry Character Photography is so much more than just your regular photography experience.
Fall of 2017, Merry Character Photography grew by hiring our Lead Associate Photographer, Holly. She brings a fun new energy and the ability to serve more fabulous clients all with her own touch of the Merry Character Photography experience you love and are used to!
Bri joined the team as an associate wedding photographer in 2018. She was Mary's full time second photographer for weddings for two years and has seconded over 20 weddings! She brings a radiant vibe and unique experience to all her Merry Character couples!
We are passionate about capturing your life as it is in this moment. We understand the importance of getting quality images but also realize you can create more memories during our fun, interactive and laugh filled sessions!
high-fives, hugs, and loud cheers are highly encouraged

"Let your heart guide you. It whispers, so listen closely."
I love the boxes of heart candy you can only get around Valentines Day. I am a sucker for old couples eating together at restaurants. I have a bucket list of places I want to visit.My best friends have been my best friends since we were in elementary school. And I've laughed so hard I have peed my pants.

She is a bundle of ear-to-ear grins paired with the most stoic faces you will ever see. She joined our family in March 2018 and every day since has been a party. She is our little tiny love & I am grateful every day to be able to hug and squeeze her! Our La-La girl is the best!
He is one of the most dedicated, hard-working people you will ever meet. He prides himself with really bad dad jokes (that he had long before he was a dad), his perfect cup of coffee, and being able to eat a large pizza in one sitting. He is my constant calm & he makes me laugh every single day. I love doing life with this goofball!
This old guy looks just like a puppy! He is the laziest, sweetest, most loyal pup you will ever meet. He has been with me for almost as long as my business has been alive!
He is quick to bark and quicker to snuggle!
“ THE MOST PASSIONATE AND PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER IN MONTANA! MARY IS TALENTED, ENTHUSIASTIC, AND KIND. SHE TURNED OUR ENGAGEMENT SHOOT INTO A FAIRY TALE, EVEN DURING THE SNOWY WINTER WEATHER IN BOZEMAN, MT. I DEFINITELY RECOMMEND MARY TO ANYONE LOOKING FOR LIFELONG MEMORIES! ”

I am an overexcited animal lover and dream of someday owning every kind of farm animal! My dessert of choice is always always ice cream and if you ask me it is okay to only eat dessert for every meal! I love learning new things & my current last is learning how to be a farmer! Oh and I always choose the blue popsicles!

This is my best friend! Sammy has been with me through a lot & Sammy has been through a lot! My accident prone pup is eager to kiss you and he loves his belly rubs. He brightens up my day and you can definitely bring your day brightening pup to your session too!
We have been together since I was a freshman in high school! We have grown up together and our love together keeps growing. He is my reason to laugh, he helps my passion for farming, he brings out the best in me and I am so thankful for that lunch date six years ago!
Next to photography, farming is my passion! I love putting on my muck boots, riding around on a dusty tractor, and kissing all the sweet cows! I currently own just cows and at one point I had cows, 7 pigs, a dog and 25 chickens! My favorite cow is named Buddy!
“WHEN IT CAME TO THE BOOKING PROCESS AND COMMUNICATION HOLLY WAS SUPER HELPFUL AND PATIENT WHEN I HAD QUESTIONS. SHE WORKED SUPER QUICK IN THE COLD AND WAS UNDERSTANDING WHEN IT CAME TO LITTLE KIDS. SHE GREETED US ALL WITH A SMILE AND A CHEERFUL ENERGETIC ATTITUDE!”
