Capturing Authentic Love Stories

While I am most inspired by raw emotion, candid connection, and authentic affection, my main focus, always, is your experience - how you feel working with me.  Because if you have a genuinely great time at our session the photos will reflect genuinely awesome memories - not just fakery staged for photo ops.  Because if I create a comfortable space for you to be yourself, wildly and freely, without abandon, then together we can create compelling, emotive imagery that goes beyond aesthetic beauty - it transports you back to how you really felt in those moments worth remembering. Based in San Diego, I offer Wedding, Lifestyle and Branding Photography throughout Southern California.

I'm a storyteller. a lover of song, sunsets and the sea. My laugh is loud + my smile genuine.


Our Approach

Whether you are planning your dream wedding, want some family photos, or need to give your business a boost with custom branding content, we provide the calm confidence of professional expertise you can rely on, the support and encouragement of a trusted friend, and the keen eye of a conscientious artist, to capture even the most fleeting moments and minute details with meaningful intention. 
The result?  Imagery that is at once organic, yet refined. Elegant, yet understated. Modern, yet timeless.  Relatable and familiar - uniquely you. Because trends may come and go,  but authentic, honest storytelling will never go out of style.

Our Values

We believe in the power of human connection - in authentic moments shared with those we love. We believe in the power of positivity and choose joy intentionally. We also believe representation matters, black lives matter, pronouns matter (mine are she/her). We believe water is life and mother earth is hurting. We believe that god is love and love is love. We know that each and every one of us, of any ethnicity, gender, age, size or faith, in all our perfect imperfections, are worthy of love - of celebrating and sharing love. Not only are you invited and welcome, but we are honored to help you tell your story. 

what we stand for

Marie was super professional and has a very warm personality that

makes everyone around her comfortable.

The picture quality is not only amazing, but they certainly
tell a story and bring out our personalities.

Marie was a cut above the rest on every level.  She seemed to "sense" what I needed and then made it happen.

I felt 100% supported by her.

She took command when we needed direction, and she made herself invisible when things were flowing well.  Marie is a true photography professional and a wonderful human. 

easy, effortless, and so fun.

The whole process for my branding session was 

 I cannot believe how incredible our photos came out. I just can't recommend Marie enough.  

She’s a magician! 

There are no words to express how amazing Marie was throughout our whole wedding adventure!

Our photos look like they belong on the cover of a magazine!
