I imagine you are giddy with excitement right now! Maybe you just found your perfect venue and can finally start to visualize how things are going to come together, or maybe you’re still narrowing your choices down and feel a bit overwhelmed by all your vendor options at the moment. Either way, I'm so happy that your journey to find the right photographer - the person you can trust to not only capture all your most precious wedding memories, but to do so with a smile on her face and a spring in her step - brought you to my little corner of the interwebs.

Downtown digs

Downtown or Uptown, urban weddings are modern, cool and sophisticated. Rife with texture and scene, city centers have so much to offer couples and their guests alike. Featured here: downtown Los Angeles, Hollywood, Beverly Hills, San Diego, Fullerton and Redlands. 

Seaside soirees

Southern California, and San Diego in particular, is known for picturesque beaches.  So whether you want to exchange your vows right on the sand, or celebrate in one of many venues near the water, a seaside soiree is where it's at for weddings as lavish or low-key as your heart desires. Featured here: Darlington House La Jolla, Coasterra, Tom Ham's Lighthouse, Martin Johnson House, Cuvier Club, Cape Rey Hilton Carlsbad, Huntington Bay Club, & more.

desert dreams

Whether it's Palm Springs, Pioneer Town in Joshua Tree, or another secluded desert oasis, the high desert provides a beautiful escape for your wedding day.  Featured here: La Quinta Country Club Palm Springs, Pacific Rim Ranch Pioneer Town, Joshua Tree, Red Rocks Las Vegas, Glamis Sand Dunes

enchanting estates

From picturesque private residences to made-for-weddings venues, a charming outdoor reception under the stars just oozes romance. It's a good thing Southern California has no shortage of enchanting estates to choose from! Featured here: Circle Oak Ranch, Ethereal Gardens, Green Gables Wedding Estate, Grand Traditions Estate, Los Willows, Quail Ranch Simi Valley, Hummingbird Nest Ranch, Japanese Friendship Garden, Mount Woodson Castle, & more. 

Whether you are recently engaged, or planning a private elopement, the honesty and authenticity of a sweet couples-only session will always be my fave.  Elopements and micro weddings run low on pomp and circumstance, but high on heart (and style), allowing us a more intimate look into your love story.

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.

Marie is an incredible photographer, and even better person. She went the extra mile from the first day and worked tirelessly to make sure we were  

prepared, organized, and most importantly, relaxed

while enjoying the best weekend of our lives. We are absolutely over the moon with these lifelong memories that Marie made possible! 

Marie captured our wedding day so beautifully and in a way that really told the story of the big and little moments alike. She was

really attentive throughout the entire day

and made us feel so comfortable. We had a blast doing photos with her! We highly recommend her!
