I create dynamic photo sessions that give you space to show up with authenticity and confidence in front of the camera. And after discovering what combination of direction and prompting makes you light up, I do it over and over again. It’s my honor and unimaginable joy to photograph one of my senior clients’ wedding day or the first maternity session of one of my wedding couples. And returning to photograph a family over and over again, through growth spurts, lost teeth, and the arrival of new members, is the adventure of a lifetime. And I look forward to beginning that adventure with you.

The experience I offer is about more than images.
It’s about legacy.

Whether you’re seeking a photographer for your wedding day or a portrait session, get the conversation started by filling out my short inquiry form. Then, I’ll be in touch in just 48 hours or less with more information and next steps. As far as when to reach out, eight is the magic number! If you’re planning a wedding celebration, I recommend reaching out eight months or more before your big day, and if you’re planning a portrait session, say hello eight weeks or more in advance. The sooner I hear from you, the better the chance your date is free. But flukes happen! So, if your timeline is shorter, don’t be afraid to reach out.


Schedule Your Session

Choose Your Adventure

After hearing from you, we will choose a time to connect either in person or virtually. So, grab your margarita glass or favorite coffee mug, and let’s have a little fun while we talk photography! Because it’s important to me to make sure you feel comfy and confident every step of the way, I am a total open book when it comes to explaining the world of photography, so bring all your questions and concerns! Then, we will build on one of my client-favorite collections to create a custom photography collection that perfectly fits your vision. From there, a signed agreement and 20% retainer officially reserve your date on my calendar!


Prepare For Your Session

Stepping in front of the camera can be a little scary. And if you’re planning a wedding, too? Oof! But don’t worry, because I’ve got you covered. With wardrobe tips and favorite locations, I can help you create the perfect vibe for your session. I’ve even got tricks to ensure you’re looking your best on the day of your session. And for those of you who are wedding planning, I’m here for you! With recommended vendor lists and wedding day timeline creation assistance, you’ll never have to wonder or worry about your big day! I’ll be there from the moment you book until your grand sparkler exit to ensure every step is easy and effortless. 


The Big Day

Together, we’ve planned your session or celebration to perfection. Now, it’s time to just enjoy! If we’re documenting your brand or graduation story, get ready to do as Rihanna would and shine bright like a diamond. If we’ve prepped a family session, get excited to connect with the people who make life sweet, interacting authentically and enjoying every special moment. And if you’re celebrating “I do”s, toast those mimosas, smile so wide your face hurts and hit the dance floor with the love of your life! No matter how big or small your session, these are once-in-a-lifetime moments, so enter into them fully while I click away on my camera!


Relive Every Moment

I don’t believe you should have to choose between impeccably edited photos and a swift turnaround time, so I’ve committed to delivering both! Just two weeks after your portrait session or four to six weeks after your wedding day, you’ll have your full gallery to enjoy. So, snuggle up with the ones you love most and relive the joy of your photography experience. Then, when the next milestone rolls around, don’t forget to get in touch! I’d love to document it, too!







About My Process

- heather

“This is our first time working with Marina, and I couldn’t be happier with our whole experience! Our boys are not easy to get to cooperate and smile for pictures, but she was very patient and was able to capture beautiful smiles and moments between the craziness. I also loved that she came with some ideas for our shoot but was also open to any suggestions we had. Also, she sent us our proofs and final photos faster than any other photographer we’ve had!”

That’s totally up to you! If you have location ideas in mind -- especially ones that are special to you, your family, or your business -- I’d love to hear them. Or, if you’re not sure, I can share some of my favorite spots with you, and we can decide from there. 

I do! I’ve partnered with the extraordinary Jessica, a local hair and makeup artist (Here is her Instagram) , to help you feel beautiful, confident, and stress-free for your session. Hair and makeup services are included in my senior, engagement, and personal branding session packages. For any session beyond those three, we can always add it on for a fee. 

Trust me, you definitely don’t want that! By eliminating all the duplicates, blurry images, and less flattering shots, I ensure every single photo you receive is one you’ll love. Meticulous image curation and editing are included in your session fee, so I look forward to including only the best of the best in your final gallery.

Absolutely, I will! I’m always up for a road trip, which is why all of my collections include up to 50 miles of complimentary travel. If your session or celebration is outside that radius, don’t worry! I’d still love to tell your story. I’ll simply create a custom proposal for you that includes those additional travel fees. 

he privacy of my clients is critical to me, so out of respect to them, I’ve decided not to get in the habit of sending full galleries to inquiring potential clients. However, my Instagram and Facebook page are filled with a wide variety of my recent work! And if there’s a particular kind of image you’d like to see, let me know, and I’ll happily send a few your way to preview.

I do! I want to make sure you absolutely love your final images, so I include basic retouching and editing in all of my packages. If you’d like to request additional retouching after you’ve received your gallery, I do have an option for that, too. At $10/image, we can do more advanced retouching on any images you select. If you have questions about basic retouching vs. advanced retouching, I’d be happy to explain the difference during our consultation.
