YOU DESERVE PHOTOS THAT MAKE YOU FEEL SOMETHING.

There are 7 billion people on the planet, and you found your ride or die. Let that sink in. Your love is so lit, you want to shout it from the rooftops. You’re crafting clever #hashtags like a boss, inviting everyone important in your life to witness your vows and share in your joy. And that’s kind of a big fucking deal. But what I want you to know is when the planning is over, the honeymoon ends, and the thank you cards are finally sent, all that’s left of this amazing ride is the story.

The story and the photos.

So don’t settle. Like Michael Scott once said, be Beyoncé, always. Plan the wedding of your dreams, and make damn sure that when you’re 90 and you look back at your photos, you get the same crazy, amazing, upside down feeling in your gut that you have right now.

REAL TALK

“We knew we wanted Maren to shoot our wedding before we were even engaged. We love that she catches all the details and quick, candid shots, and not just stiff poses. Maren was so easy to work with. She helped keep things running smoothly and captured the sweetest and funniest moments of our day. The photos turned out even better than we imagined. We’re so thankful to have our memories so beautifully preserved!.”

“Holy hell. I am endlessly amazed by your talent. I  feel at a complete loss for how to tell you how happy these photos make me. That was an incredibly happy day for us, and we’re so grateful you could capture it. I’m like hardcore grinning in every photo which is exactly how I felt that day. Thank you a million times over. I so appreciate these memories.”

EMOTIVE PORTRAITURE

Come as you are.  My portrait sessions are a departure from the traditional, with an emphasis on human connection. I believe in less posing and more playing.
