I am so HAPPY you're here !

Well, this is me !

It's super important to get to know your photographer especially if they are going to be photographing your most important day.

Well, I'm Marielle & I have this insane passion for photography because of the magic, it really is something special to be able to record moments in life and allow people to always keep them close their hearts. My approach has changed over the years but I have always stayed loyal to my clients and the important part of creating an enjoyable experience for them that is not only pretty in photographs but pretty in their memory banks.

About me? Well, I'm very competitive and fairly good at all sports, especially the one where we drink as much wine as possible & taste all the coffees.

My Story? Well, I picked up my first camera at like 3 years old & took one really shite photograph after that I borrowed my moms film camera when I was around 10 and I finished like 3 reels, much to my parents disappointment as the price of printing can be a little steep.

Later on I pursued it & studied at Vega, DBN & I have never looked back.

I have always had a lot of pressure to study more and not put all my eggs in one basket, but truth is, I just love what I do & I want to wake up every morning knowing I am about to do what makes me happy and I can probably make someone else happy too. - And ain't that cool?

I have a unique approach to my style & work ethic - if you want to read more about how I work I'd love to explain

It was such a special day that I will be writing about soon!! A year later and I am finally MRS ALBERS.

WOW, What a whirlwind. Having a baby and running a full time business. After one year, I can finally say, I MADE IT. I travelled overseas for two weddings with her & countless times to JHB and CPT. I am so proud of it as well. 
Here she is - Our little wild one.
