Engagement Photography

Marlon was the best!! He met us for an engagement shoot for my fiancee and our puppy in Oakland. He picked the perfect locations to capture our shots, was so good at directing us and was a pleasure to work with. He was beyond professional, prompt, communicative and delivered outstanding work. We are planning on hiring Marlon to shoot our wedding already. I would recommend him in a heartbeat. If you are looking for great documentary style photography work, Marlon is your man. THANK YOU MARLON!

We needed real estate photography fast and Marlon was able to accommodate our tight schedule. He was professional and had a great eye for detail. We would definitely hire him again and recommend him for all your photography needs.

Commercial Photography

My company needed photos of some product we make, installed to use for our website & print catalog. The photos turned out perfectly & the whole process was very easy. I will definitely book again if I locate more product installed nearby. Highly recommend for any photos needs!

Wedding and Event Photography

We hired Marlon for our daughter's birthday event. It was a last-minute plan and we didn't have time to give all the details or completely understand what we should expect from Marlon. I am happy to say we were highly satisfied with Marlon's photography and professionalism. From the beginning to the end, my experience everything was very smooth. 1. Marlon arrived before the start of the event and was happy to use that time to take shots of the decoration and a few solo photos 2. Marlon is very personable and made our guests comfortable. He shot both candid and posed photographs 3. The edited photos were delivered in 2-phases. A sneak peek and all clubbed together 4. The quality of the photos was sharp and had a nice natural look I am not uploading any samples due to privacy reasons but I am happy to refer Marlon to my friends and family!
Marlon Moments's reply
Wow, Nakul! Thank you for this very detailed review! I am so delighted to have given you and your family this type of experience. After our initial conversation on the phone, I knew this relationship was off to a great start and that I had to follow through on my end. I appreciate all your kindness and hope to work with you again soon!

Book Marlon! I surprised my fiancé with a photo shoot after I proposed and we loved how he captured it. Marlon takes a great mix of candids and posed photos and color/b+w. Throughout my planning process he was professional - responsive, transparent and offered fair pricing. He was even able to capture my proposal (I proposed on a hard to get to beach and Marlon scouted the location out with me). During our photo session he helped us relax and was also able to capture the joy we felt right after the engagement. I would certainly work with him again.
