I photograph people and my images are people centered. This means that I strive to literally present you in the best light. The backdrop is of secondary importance. It will often be blurred or blown out because my focus is on YOU. A flower may end up as a dot of color, a building or landscape in the back will be recognizable but probably not defined. No two photo shoots are ever alike and I spend a lot of time and thought before the session tailoring the shoot to your exact needs and wants. I work hard to keep it fresh and creative for each client. For your indoor event I will typically conduct a site visit ahead of time to familiarize myself with the setting and lighting conditions, so I can visualize the scene and sequence of events and prepare my equipment accordingly.



I am fortunate to have access to a beautifully designed yard right by my house in McLean if you want to keep things simple. Most of the time, however, I photograph in parks, gardens, or urban environments. The Washington DC area brims with public spaces and architecture beckoning to be the setting for your photos and I spend a fair amount of time location scouting when I am not out shooting. We will discuss ideas which suit your style and your family. I am also happy to travel to your home or venue of your event.



The best way is to use the online scheduling feature on my website. You may also email me at marionmeakemphotography@gmail.com with a couple of suggestions. I require a
deposit of $100 to reserve your appointment, with the balance due after the session.



We will communicate on the day before or on the scheduled appointment and can reschedule in case of inclement weather. We can also explore indoor options.



I completely understand that things come up and children get sick. Please inform me as soon as you know that you can’t keep the appointment. I allow one non-weather related reschedule per session. After that I reserve the right to charge a $100 reschedule fee to protect my time investment. Especially during the busy season it is very likely that I have turned away another client because I had reserved the time slot for you.


 
Once you book your session and pay your deposit, I will send you my style guide with specific tips for clothing.




Absolutely. I have done a lot of work with dogs in particular. They are part of the family, so why shouldn’t 
they be on your family photo?




For larger events I will recommend including a second or even third shooter. I work with several other photographers who are consummate professionals and will put together an experienced and reliable team for your event. We have photographed high level events with thousands of guests, so you will be in good hands.
