Kind hearted photographer(s) that will make everyone love getting their pictures taken.

Marla and Peter did a great job at our wedding in August 2023. Things that stood out to us were their warm presence and clear communication. Marla was able to direct the crowds well while not sounding abrasive or short at all, meanwhile, Peter was cracking jokes in the back and it made for an overall fun experience for taking pictures.
We would definitely recommend booking the 2nd photographer (Peter, Marla's husband) as they work very well as a team to be as efficient as possible.
Overall, the pictures turned out great, no complaints as far as quality go at all! The editing is subtle yet very transformative, and the small profile they send you a week after your wedding is lovely to have so early.
It was a great experience, they are super kind and excellent at what they do! Highly recommend.

Incredible photographer, lovely person!

We hired Marla to be our wedding photographer, based on a recommendation from an online group, and she did not disappoint! Marla was so lovely, easy to work with, and very professional. She made us feel so comfortable and at ease, and politely gave us directions for adjusting our poses/body positions while she photographed us. Marla made sure we got all of the guest and family photos we wanted by requesting that we write up a list of the different combinations of people we wanted photographed. This made things so much less stressful on the day, because we knew we wouldn鈥檛 miss any photos with the people we love!

As a plus size bride, I was a little bit nervous about how my wedding photos would turn out. When I talked to Marla about it she explained that she has photographed brides and grooms of all shapes and sizes, and she felt very confident in doing so. Our photos turned out absolutely amazing - I truly couldn鈥檛 be happier! We got beautiful photos, and Marla had us laughing and having fun the entire time she photographing us!

10/10 would recommend!

Marla knows what she's doing!

We opted for an engagement shoot and wedding shoot with Marla. At the time we reached out, Marla indicated that she would be performing the sessions by herself. On the eve of the engagement shoot, her husband Peter joined to assist, offering opinions, insight and holding gear. During the wedding, he decided to join with a camera of his own. And so this review will reflect their services together, because that's what we received.

The engagement shoot was a great opportunity to meet Marla and Pete, get to know their style and familiarizing ourselves with how they give instruction. They were very receptive to our needs, but I'll be honest: We had no idea what we wanted. We leaned on Marla for her thoughts, ideas and vision. I found the session valuable because during the wedding day, I had a good idea of the poses the photographers would be looking for, so less time was wasted asking me to do something else with my hands or to hold that kiss just a second longer. Many of the photos we received from that evening quickly found their way on social media for our friends and family to see. So let's move onto our wedding day!

When I look back at the things we stressed about leading up to the day, or during the day, photography was not one of them. Marla and Pete knew where they needed to be at each point in our itinerary, and asked all the right questions where needed. Its hard for me to offer criticism because they were very attentive to our needs, a pleasure to work with, and they helped us make the most of our time with them. A few times during the day they suggested we take some photos at a few places we didn't think of, and it was great to see their creative ideas help lead to some unique shots.

More than that though, they captured stories and moments that I look back at fondly. Yeah, the posed photos are great, but I'll be honest, I saw a lot of great "bridal party with bride and groom all line up" photos from everyone on this site. What I was looking for were photographers who took photos that told a story - those moments when the bride's father shed a tear, when the my table laughed at my sister roasting me in her toast, or our mothers dancing the night away. For those, Marla and Pete delivered. I also need to emphasize how amazing our photos at my wife's family's house look. Having looked at it for many years, I had no idea how beautiful it could be and really accent our pictures with our bridal party and family. As I look back at them, some of them may not be the most posed and flattering - we wanted a lot of fun, silly, honest photos - but I'm transported back to that moment and remember how happy we all were or what joke was made at the time. We got the photos that we wanted.

Looking back at our wedding day, sure there are things that could have gone differently: Maybe my wife wouldn't have tripped on her dress up the stairs, but the photos of her dad helping her up the steps are priceless. It didn't need to rain that day, but the pictures of our rings with spattered drops of water are beautiful. We stressed about a lot of things leading up to the big day, and our faith in Marla to know what she was doing took a great weight off our shoulders and for that reason, I would rebook with Marla in a heartbeat.

Amazing Photographers

Marla and Peter were an absolute joy to work with, they did both our engagement and wedding pictures and they turned out so beautiful. We all shared so many laughs along the way as they made us feel super comfortable working with them throughout the whole process. Marla made sure to communicate with us the whole process as to when the pictures would be ready and they showed up very quick. Marla went above and beyond and provided feedback and support for any questions I had regarding the whole wedding process even if it wasn鈥檛 related to photography. Both my husband and myself are super grateful for everything Marla and Peter did to help make our wedding day perfect!

AmazingPhotographers!

Marla and Peter were absolutely amazing. There was nothing they wouldn't do or try to do for us. We knew they were the right choice right from the first meeting with them because they wanted to know about us and who we are as a couple. They were extremely flexible with COVID-19 throwing us a curveball for our wedding. Every time I look at our photos I'm blown away with them.

Such a fun and professional experience!

Marla and Peter were simply amazing.
My husband and I had never had a professional photo shoot done before our engagement shoot. Marla and Peter were a dynamic duo and put us at ease with their humor and clear direction. I cannot sing their praises loud enough! I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a professional, fair and experienced photographer.

Best photographer I鈥檝e ever worked with!

Marla is amazing!!! She is creative, talented, and just perfect at what she does. Marla is very easily accessible for communication and works with you to ensure you have exactly what you want. My husband and I didn鈥檛 really know what to expect. Marla made us feel comfortable by meeting us beforehand for an engagement photo shoot. She was on time, ready to go, and ensured we had a variety of pictures on our wedding day. She is easy to work with and my husband and I would both highly recommend her. Plus she makes little jokes and her personality is very easy to get along with. Best part, I鈥檓 not waiting over a year for pictures. Marla had pictures back to us very quickly. Photos are an important part of weddings. It鈥檚 what you look back on 30-40-50 years down the road and I鈥檓 so happy we worked with Marla for ours! Thank you Marla. We are so grateful!

Marla is amazing!

Marla is an incredible wedding photographer, we are beyond impressed with her talent and she was a delight to have around on the day.

We reached out to her in a pinch seeking a wedding photographer after our on/off/on again wedding debacle due to COVID-19 and she helped us capture the day even better than we had envisioned.

She has such a great laid back energy while efficiently capturing all of the big and little moments.

Thank you Marla, for everything! Would highly recommend to anyone seeking a photographer.
