kind words…


Marilyn is nothing short of perfection. She’s a true artist and we couldn’t be happier with our pictures.

Since our family and friends are spread across the globe, many of them only saw our wedding through pictures and it was a real priority for us to hire someone to capture those memories. Marilyn really came through. Her photography is stunning, and she gave us a huge range of pictures. We have stunning portraits and family pictures, as well as tons of candids that we just love.

We got married in winter, with challenging outdoor conditions and low light, but you could never tell from the pictures we got. From twilight outdoor portraits to the candle lit reception, she captured everything wonderfully and the photography is just stunning.

Beyond the quality of her work, Marilyn is also wonderful to work with. She is friendly, professional and very confident without being cocky or overbearing. She also brought a second shooter to our wedding who was a real pleasure to work with. Our family members kept remarking how nice she was, and they are all thrilled with the pictures she took of them (we’re a picky bunch!).

I would highly recommend Marilyn to anyone looking for a photographer.


“Marilyn is great! We had an engagement session with her and she is so down to earth! Besides having the same taste in everything, she really encouraged us to be ourselves and do what we do so she could capture it on film.

She has a great eye, and we took some of my most favorite picture in front of an old tree that was beginning to lose it fall leaves. We had so much fun playing around in the leaves and the pictures came out gorgeous!

She has a great spirit and a wonderful heart. I would use her again in a heartbeat.”

...she really encouraged us to be ourselves ...


After having met a few photographers and not feeling excited about any of them, I was hesitant to meet Marilyn, especially since I felt her prices were out of my budget. BUT I am absolutely happy my husband convinced me to just sit and talk to her to see what she had to offer. She made me laugh from the moment I met her. I had feelings of excitement after meeting her and from that point, I knew she would be our photographer. She took both our engagement and wedding photos and I am absolutely pleased.

She is very professional and uses an iPad to show her portfolio! She makes site visits before the event to get ideas for photo opportunities. She was such a trooper for our engagement photos since we were in a time crunch and I wanted to get my save-the-dates out within weeks of booking her. She had our photos back to us in a week! I love her style and I love her personality! The quality of her pictures are great and she’s easy to communicate with!


I had the pleasure of working with Marilyn on my engagment photo shoot. She was wonderful to work with! Her photographs are truley AMAZING. They are an art work that I will always cherish in my home. I loved my Olvera St. and Union Station pictures so much that I had albums especially made so that I can display the pictures on my coffee table. I highly recommend Marilyn to anyone looking for an AMAZING photographer.

From the drop of a hat, we knew Marilyn would be perfect. She understood us, and she understood our humor and what we were looking for. Experience doesn’t mean anything unless you have the eye and she just simply has the talent.

During our engagement photo shoot, she took a couple of knuckleheads, one of who is not very photogenic (me) and made us feel super comfortable.

I hate looking at pictures of myself but the pictures that resulted from the shoot were amazing and I had ZERO reservations about putting them up in my house.

I think that in itself says a lot about the quality of Marilyn’s work.

She will go the extra mile for you and for people as stressed as we were, we really appreciated that.

Marilyn has become more than a vendor, she’s really become a friend. During one of our events of the day, she actually shared a tear with my bride. That shows a lot of emotional investment and care into not only her care for her work but her care for us. All of this comes out in the photographs.

Marilyn – we love you dearly. Thank you so much for everything you did for us.

That shows a lot of emotional investment and care into not only her care for her work but her care for us.
