Marianne is simply amazing at her job. A consummate professional, she was always available by email and phone. On top of that, she met with me in-person prior to my event to talk me through the process. Her advice stems from years of experience and the guide she provided was invaluable. Her outgoing, energetic personality is part of what makes her a great wedding photographer. She was able to tame rambunctious toddlers for photos and kept all the adults laughing during the portrait session after the ceremony. Marianne makes herself aware of your unique family situation and goes above and beyond to accommodate it. All of that aside, she has the ability to capture moments the way you want them to be remembered - the three seconds that the light broke through the clouds, the stolen glances during dinner, the ring bearer sneaking frosting from the cake, the wistful moment between a mother and son. If you want truly breathtaking photos, hire Marianne. I can't say enough good things about her, but I don't really need to. Her work speaks for itself.
