"Marielle was perfect!
She met with us before hand and talked us through the day, helping us work out details we had not yet thought to consider. She knew exactly what we wanted, what our priorities were, and how much time we had for each element of the day. She was extraordinary with time management, getting all our family photos done before 4:00 pm (as scheduled) despite us being the cause of starting late.
She was somehow everywhere and yet completely unobtrusive, and produced stunning photos. The first "preview" photos she sent us immediately after the wedding day consistently induce tears! All her photos have received high compliments from anyone who has seen them. We cannot recommend her enough."

"I was so thrilled with Marielle. She was my first choice photographer -- I love how she had a great mix of beautiful formal shots but also lovely candids. Her work is artistic and natural. Our first meeting she was so lovely and I knew we had the perfect photographer! We worked together to create a timeline for the day and Marielle was so responsive (I emailed her ... a lot) and totally assuaged any fears I had of getting ALL the pictures of my huge family in. We worked together on a timeline and she even helped me nail a time down with the hair/makeup people so that we'd stay on track for the day. She was so kind, great with kids (I had some feisty flower girls), and made everyone feel happy and comfortable ALL day. Her assistant Nate was great too. I was nervous about having two photographers because I really didn't want it to feel like a film shoot and it NEVER did. They were so respectful (while getting some awesome shots) during the ceremony. She emailed me 80 of her favorite pictures THE NEXT DAY! Who DOES that?? I can't wait to get the rest of the photos and I'd highly recommend Marielle to ANYONE."

"Never could I have imagined having such a wonderful experience with our wedding photographer! From first meeting, Marielle was warm and inviting, creative and open to ideas. In general, my partner and I are uncomfortable being photographed, but Marielle made us feel relaxed and helped us have fun! She gave us an introductory engagement session so we could get to know her and she us. During the wedding, she took great casual shots and posed shots of us and our guests and added many playful touches, capturing the decor and spirit of the wedding. She worked within our budget, which was greatly appreciated and gave us all we could ask for and more! You would be lucky to have Marielle as your wedding photographer, she is down to earth and takes beautiful photos. Thank you so much for everything!"

"Marielle was a total dream to work with. Her photographs are unique and gorgeous, and you couldn't ask for a lovelier person. We feel so lucky to have snagged her for our wedding day---she made us both look like models! And what's more, she captured the joy and warmth of our event perfectly."

"Marielle is a genius with the camera! She was fabulous the day of my wedding, her second shooter was also really great. They arrived at 10am to capture everyone getting ready and Marielle stayed until the very end to capture our sparkler exit at 11:30pm. She made my husband and I so comfortable and really captured our personalities. One of the best decisions I made!!!"

"Marielle did a "love shoot" and couple portraits of my fiance and I in Austin, TX, and she was a dream to work with! She picked a beautiful spot for the shoot, in a creekside public park, and took wonderful photos of us picnicking on the grass and wading in the creek. She has a keen artistic eye, the highest level of professionalism, and enthusiasm for capturing the magic that makes each couple unique. Marielle went out of her way to quickly process and share her photos, and we treasure them as a keepsake of the first years of our relationship in Austin."

"Marielle's photos are a gift that we will value for a lifetime. She captured a precious moment in our relationship, and gave us the most flattering and romantic "couple" photos that we possess. I can't believe how beautiful I look and how handsome my fiancee looks! Her photos have glowing colors, gorgeous lighting, clear focus & a romantic sensibility. Her photos enhance the natural beauty of people and places, make the best possible use of lighting, flatter her subjects, show deep relationships & have first-class composition. From start to finish, Marielle was full of creative ideas and responsive to our own ideas. She encouraged us to have fun at our engagement session. I chose a nature path in Austin, TX for our location but did not do a "test run" or have a more specific plan; luckily, Marielle's talent compensated for my lack of planning. Once we got there, she "used her eye" to spot a gorgeous dried riverbed that I would've overlooked. The result was classy, one-of-a-kind collection of images that tell our unique story. Marielle is both fun & professional, efficient & relaxing to work with. She arrived promptly, but traffic made ME arrive so late that there was only about 45 minutes of good lighting before dark. Miraculously, in that short time, Marielle took hundreds of stunning photos that captured a variety of vistas, perspectives, staging and emotions. We got our engagement photos back in a very timely fashion and we were thrilled! My friends have hired Marielle for various services and everyone has been equally thrilled. Please do yourself a favor and hire her for ANY photographic needs you have. "
