If you're looking for a wedding photographer in Youngstown, Ohio, you found me! My style is for the fun and quirky couples who are comfortable in their own skin. They are the ones who believe that even the smallest details in life are significant and deserve to be preserved in a photograph. I have an overwhelming need to tell stories and connect with people through honesty and passion. My goal is to craft your wedding photos to be as uniquely you as possible! I really love the emotional pull that comes from weddings, so when I spot those moments, I photograph them as raw, real and natural as they are happening.

While my homestead is in Youngstown, Ohio, I also photograph in Cleveland, Warren, Pittsburgh and beyond. As a Youngstown wedding photographer, I've photographed at many of the beautiful venues that Ohio has to offer, including Stambaugh Auditorium, The B & O Station, The DeYor, Hartford Hill Winery, Stillwater Place and the Cleveland Zoo, Hocking Hills, Mooreland Mansion, The Avalon and many more. I'm also available for destination weddings. If you're ready for peace of mind when it comes to your wedding photos, click here.

I was learning to conceptualize the images I took. I was encouraged to find the meaning in what I was seeing through my lens. I still didn't quite "get it" but I was trying. I knew if I was going to dive into this conceptual world of art and photography, I was going to have to open up and SHOW what I was feeling through the images I took. Both of my grandmothers were getting older and they both had such a strong emotional impact on me. One of my first projects in my college career was a documentary, and I chose to tell the story of my Grandma Bellino living with dementia. The impact of that series still has a hold on me to this day, over 7 years later. The images were a powerful tool in connecting with so many people and I then I “got it”. This is why I chose to be a wedding photographer. Imagery of our lives is SO important to preserve, and I get to help other people do that for one of the biggest and most exciting times in their lives. Truly, I am HONORED to be able to visually tell people's love stories!

As a visual artist, I aim to tell a story with the work I create. Your entire wedding experience will be tailored to you as a couple - we are telling YOUR love story after all! Each image is hand-crafted with your storyline in mind. With timeless imagery intricately weaving through the story of your love, you will see AND feel the emotions of your wedding day all over again when you reflect on your wedding album ten years from now. From the beginning stages of planning to the engagement session, the wedding day and afterwards, the Mae B Photo wedding experience is not only personal but also unique because each couple's story is different.
