(Almost) Nothing makes me happier than my clients' love notes

"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."

"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."

"When I first saw Marion's gorgeous photographs of our special family event, they took my breath away

I was already a fan of her work, yet she exceeded my high expectations. Marion's warmth and kindness put everyone at ease, which led to relaxed and natural posed shots. Even better, she captured so many special candid moments throughout the evening, with beautiful composition and lighting. The photos bring me joy every time I go through them because they truly reflect the spirit and memory of a wonderful day."

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' "

"The process and photos exceeded my expectation. Marion is a true professional.
I really enjoyed working with her."

"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. 

We really like working with Marion from start to finish."

She is patient, works quickly to keep the kids from losing interest and has a great sense of humor.

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."

"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."
