Jordan and I finally had a chance to sit down and look through the gallery just now and I'm seriously blown away. I cried going through the photos, because they are all so beautiful and we're definitely going to have a hard time narrowing down our selections for prints. We can't thank you enough for your amazing work and the absolutely stunning photos that came out of a relaxed and enjoyable shoot. We will cherish these images for years to come, and are very thankful for your talent and ability to capture this moment for our kids.

Marion, we finally sat down to check out the gallery and we are floored!! We can’t wait to hang these up in our home- the ones of the kids are especially priceless to me. Thanks for capturing the memories for us and for always being wonderful to work with!

Oh Marion!! These turned out so beautifully. We are absolutely thrilled!! Grace especially is really happy with all of them...they turned out even better than she hoped! Thank you for taking the time to work with us. You had such a gentle touch and really put Grace at ease the whole time. We loved getting to know you and I'm sure we'll be in touch in the future.

After working with a number of photographers in the DC area over the years, we are very happy with Marion Meakem who is easy to work with and creates great photographs. She gets the right shots without being pushy or intrusive. She deals with highly visible people with respect and care. We've worked with her on our Capitol Hill events for several years and plan to continue!

Marion is sensitive to cultural nuances, thoughtful in how she understands what her clients need, and assertive in making sure things get done. 
My organization has hired her for several photo shoots and she does a superb job every single time, beyond what we could have expected. Moreover, she's fun to work with, kind and compassionate, and ensured that we were completely satisfied with the end product. (Spoiler: We were). 

I cannot recommend Marion highly enough. She brings the full package of professionalism, skill, talent, compassion, and assertiveness.

Dear Marion,
You are a superstar! You made me tear up. The pictures you took, the expressions you captured, brought me back to my son when he was little. It's been a long time since I've seen that smile and loveliness radiating from him. I appreciate so much what you brought out from him. I am going to ask him what was the magic ... besides of course your mastery at the lens.
Thank you. Our whole family is going to be so thankful.

Nancy N.

My entire family is in awe of your pictures.
Such a treasure and such a gift to us all.
Thank you from the very bottom of my heart.
This is truly one of the best gifts - forever grateful."

Marion, I am so thrilled with these photos. You are amazing. The pictures are simply beautiful. I know we will enjoy them for years to come. Thank you, thank you for capturing everybody just right. It's great when I think 'Well, that could be our Christmas picture,' and then a few pictures later 'or that could be our Christmas picture'.

Marion is incredibly easy and enjoyable to work with. As a mother herself, she knows the antics of kids as well as the boredom they feel when having to sit for photos. She is patient, works quickly to keep the kids from losing interest and has a great sense of humor.

We really like working with Marion from start to finish.

Joanna B.

 OMG, I Love love love the photographs. We absolutely couldn't be happier.

Liz B.

Your photos are magnificent. You totally captured the feel, the energy, the emotion of the party. Somehow you were everywhere, too. I didn't realize how much was going on and who was interacting with whom, until I looked through your photos.
Each shot is a personality portrait. You are truly a worldclass pro.
Your photos will be a treasure forever.

Alison G.

Marion, take a victory lap. Thank you for doing a spectacular job of capturing our family celebration. It may be a once-in-a-lifetime celebration for us, but you have helped make our indelible memories of the event.

Thank you, Marion

I searched high and low for a photographer and I'm so glad to have found Marion. My photos are amazing - beyond what I expected. Marion was professional and easy to work with, from beginning to end. She made me comfortable while taking my headshots.
I highly recommend her.

Marla H.

What a wonderful, amazing, incredible (plus many more superlatives) job you did capturing our marriage moments. There are so many gems in this collection,it is hard to know where to start.

Suffice it to say, we are extremely grateful to you for being so gracious, so flexible, so adept at working with our somewhat unconventional requests, and making the very best out of it. Thanks again from our hearts.

Jacob C.

Marion, we have so much to be thankful for, but your photos take the cake! 
Thank you for capturing our special day -
we're over the moon with how beautiful the pictures are.
Thank you!

Brie C. & Jason B.

Wow! Thank you so much!
These photos are so absolutely beautiful that they brought tears to my eyes.

Marcella F.

Dear Marion, I can't tell you how meaningful it is that I have beautiful photos with which to memorialize that special day forever. You seamlessly managed to appear in all the right places;
I have to wonder if you had a clone because it does not seem possible to have caught every hug, every platter, and everything in between. I am infinitely appreciative.

Marisa M.

You have a wonderful talent for having everyone relax and enjoy the entire experience of having pictures taken. We really appreciate your approach to make every picture perfect.
We are extremely happy with the result of all the family photos.

Bill W. & Betsy Y.

Wow Wow Wow Wow.
That's all I can say after looking at the spectacular photos. Marion, you are a gifted artist.
Your photos are priceless.

Jacqueline M.

Thank you, Marion, for your unwavering patience during our sessions. I am just so happy.

These photographs are simply perfect. They capture the sweetness of their children as well as their 'spriteness'. I honestly don't know how you did it. There are tons of amazing pictures here.
