THE EXPERIENCE

What to expect from me

WHETHER IT'S YOUR FIRST TIME DOING A SHOOT OR YOU'RE A PRO, IT'S GREAT TO KNOW YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER & HOW THEY WORK.
ALSO, I LOVE TO BE ON THE SAME PAGE AS MY CLIENTS + MAKE THEM FEEL AS COMFORTABLE AS POSSIBLE.

FIRST THINGS FIRST KNOW
THAT I'VE GOT YOU

I AM ALWAYS GOING TO BE

REAL + HONEST WITH YOU

WE MAY NOT KNOW EACH OTHER + THAT IS WHY IT IS SO IMPORTANT TO GUIDE YOU EVERY STEP OF THE WAY + TO MAKE YOU FEEL COMFORTABLE

I AM HERE TO HELP YOU WITH ANYTHING YOU MAY NEED

IT MIGHT BE WEDDING DECOR IDEAS, VENDORS THAT I TRUST, MAYBE YOU JUST NEED SOME IDEAS FOR SOMETHING UN-RELATED TO PHOTOGRAPHY.

I AM HERE TO HELP + ALWAYS WILLING TO GO THE EXTRA MILE FOR YOU.

I ALSO WANT TO MAKE YOU FEEL COMFORTABLE + THAT IS WHY I WILL TELL YOU WHAT MOVEMENTS ARE MAKING YOU LOOK GOOD + WHAT TO DO TO MAKE YOU LOOK AMAZING! 

DIRECTING YOU TO POSE IN A WAY THAT NOT ONLY MAKES YOU LOOK GOOD BUT FEEL GOOD.

HAVE FUN + TRUST
MY APPROACH

REAL MOMENTS, CONNECTION + NO CHEESY PHOTOGRAPHS

I LOVE CREATING A SCENE WHERE YOU WILL CREATE MOVEMENT - IT ALWAYS IS STRIKING + NATURALLY YOU WILL LAUGH + HAVE A GOOD TIME - ALSO THINK LESS ABOUT ME BEING THERE.

CONNECTION IS FIRST HAND WHAT YOU WILL NOTICE IN IMAGES.

GUIDING YOU TO MAKE CONNECTION WILL BE ONE OF THE THINGS YOU WILL HEAR THE MOST FROM ME. I WILL ENCOURAGE KISSING, HUGGING, DANCING & BUTT GRABS. MAKING YOU AFTER ALL - COMFORTABLE.

I WANT YOU TO LOOK BACK + REMEMBER THE MOMENT NOT ME STANDING THERE SAYING "SMIIIILE"

IT'S ALL ABOUT THE EXPERIENCE!

YEP. IT'S WEIRD TO SMILE FOR 1 MINUTE AT A CAMERA AND NOT EVEN FEEL HAPPY? AM I RIGHT? 

THIS IS WHERE I WILL TRY TO CREATE ENVIRONMENTS WHERE YOU ARE NATURALLY BEING YOU - AFTER ALL, THOSE ARE THE BEST PHOTOS OF YOU.

YOU'RE MORE THAN JUST A CLIENT
I'M MORE THAN JUST A VENDOR

WELL, IT'S TRUE !

I WILL BE WITH YOU FROM THE START OF YOUR WEDDING DAY TO THE END, I WILL BE USING MY SNEAKY-NESS TO CAPTURE MOMENTS THAT YOU MAY NOT HAVE EVEN KNOWN HAPPENED.

I WILL ALWAYS BE THERE TO GO THE EXTRA MILE WITH YOU + GETTING ALONG IS A KEY ROLE IN OUR RELATIONSHIP.

I AM ALSO A BRIDE + I UNDERSTAND THAT SOMETIMES WE NEED SUPPORT IN WAYS WE DIDN'T REALLY PLAN.

IF YOU FORGOT TO DO SOMETHING ON YOUR WEDDING DAY, IF IT DOESN'T INTERFERE WITH CAPTURING YOUR SPECIAL DAY, YOU CAN TRUST ME TO HELP YOU HANDLE IT.

WELL, I GENUINELY CARE ABOUT ALL OF MY CLIENTS, WE USUALLY BECOME FRIENDS AFTER SHOOTS + WEDDINGS

Marielle, thank you so so much for the photos. We are beyond happy  I can’t believe the amount of photos you’ve sent us, I’ve been scrolling through them since you’ve sent them and might still have not seen all of them!! I still get amazed every time I go though them. You have captured our day so so well, and you never made it awkward once!! Your creativity, phototherapy eye, editing  me, and brian, and my family are in love with the photos!! Our biggest problem is not being able to pick between the thousands of beautiful shots!! Thank you for your effort and for the quick turn around, I really didn’t expect the photos, more than 2000 , so quickly. You’re amazing!! And you’ve got such an amazingly bright future ahead of you based on your talent and way you connect with your clients. Thanks a million!!!!

M thank you for capturing our special day so perfectly! you captured the super special candid moments, as well as managed to get us at all the right angles. Not only are you insanely talented, but you were also the best energy/hype girl to have on our special day! I love reliving the story your pictures tell of our big day, thank you!!

- JESS + BENJ

Marielle was absolutely amazing for our special day! Very efficient and kept all of us so comfortable all day in front of the camera. The pictures have absolutely blown our minds and we are beyond blessed to have had her there. She isnt scared to get covered in bubbly for a good shot and I love that! Thank you M! <3

Marielle is absolutely PHENOMENAL at what she does! She has the most calming presence & she made us feel so chilled out at our engagement shoot & on the wedding day.

She was always up for our drinking and golf cart, photo ideas. She listens to what you want and also captures every tiny little detail of your day (even without you knowing or requesting it). She is so friendly, kind, happy and her work is out of this world! She is beyond talented & her images speak for themself!

 

I'm trying to find any event or excuse to get to work with her again, cause shes just damn FABULOUS!!! Love you girl :)

- TYLA + RYAN

By far the best decision I made for my wedding was hiring Marielle. She is absolutely amazing in every which way, She was extremely helpful not just with photos but also anything that needed to be done, there was absolutely no hesitation to jump in and help.

I am not the most confident or comfortable in front of a camera, but Marielle definitely helped to shake off all the nerves & the photos came out beautifully.

She captured every smile, laugh, hug, silly moment and all the sweet dance moves.

I am beyond obsessed and definitely will be using her again for any other photo opportunities that come up in the future.
