Hands down the best decision we made for our wedding! Our wedding photos turned out absolutely stunning and they more than surpassed our expectations.

She took time to get to know us as a couple beforehand and was extremely thorough during the planning process, helping me to consider things I hadn't thought of which I hugely appreciated since I planned my own wedding. Marie and John were an absolute joy to work with and made us feel like we were just hanging out with our friends the day of the wedding. Throughout the day she kept me calm even when other things became overwhelming. Afterwards she was extremely timely in getting us the photos and they did not disappoint! I was just so impressed by her professionalism and her character, but at the end of the day the most important thing was the result. Our wedding photos were breathtaking!

Marie, John, and her team are top notch. I seriously cannot recommend them enough. After my previously hired photographer went MIA, Marie calmed my nerves and made sure every detail of my special day was taken care of. She seriously went above and beyond. Marie kept in...
