The photography preset industry has never attempted what has taken KINDRED x MARY COSTA almost two years to complete. This collaboration is vibrant, punchy, and fun while ensuring that flawless and luminous skin tones remain at the forefront.

If you didn't know Mary Costa before,
we dare you not to fall in love with her
and her work now.

You can now apply Mary's vivid aesthetic to your photos taken anywhere in the world.


Hi, I’m Mary! I’m a Los Angeles-based photographer who specializes in vibrant wedding and commercial imagery. I first moved to California from New Hampshire over a decade ago and have been largely inspired by the color, sunshine, and vast array of gorgeous landscapes on the west coast. I approach photography the same way I approach life: with whimsical enthusiasm, joyous intention, and a dash of spontaneity. When I’m not photographing I can be found at a concert, baking cookies, sipping wine, or on an adventure with my awesome husband, Mike! Kindred embodies delight, kindness, and community - I couldn’t be more excited to call them my partner!
