Mary Costa is a Los Angeles-based photographer who specializes in bright, vibrant imagery.

She studied photography at Emerson College in Boston, MA, before giving up cold winters in favor of year-round sunshine on the west coast. Her work is especially inspired by bold colors, bright light, and clean lines.

Mary photographs everything from creative portraits and fashion brands to top restaurants and styled tablescapes. Her work has been featured by Forever 21, Martha Stewart, Target, Sunkist Growers, Green Wedding Shoes, Studio DIY, Oh Joy!, Camille Styles, and JPG Magazine. Mary's images for the Los Angeles Tourism Board are currently displayed on billboards at Los Angeles International Airport.

When Mary isn't photographing she can usually be found at a concert, eating sushi, or exploring California with her awesome husband, Mike. She loves meeting new people and is always happy to collaborate with fellow creatives.
