modern love stories,

candidly &
artfully told.

You found your soulmate. Your ride or die. Your eternal swipe right. Soon you’ll be inviting everyone important in your life to witness your vows and share in your joy as you embark on your greatest adventure yet – and it’s a pretty incredible feeling, right?!

The kind of feeling you’ll want to relive for a lifetime.

Like Michael Scott once said, be Beyoncé – always. And especially on your wedding day. You deserve not only epic wedding photos, but a photographer who is genuinely as hyped for your big day as you are, a photographer who makes the experience comfortable (and fun!), but most importantly, a photographer who is whole-heartedly invested in authentically telling your story – because it’s one of a kind.

 

hi! i’m mären.

 I’m a Hudson Valley New York based wedding & engagement photographer with an affinity for timeless, emotive imagery, rich colors, and spontaneous real-life moments.

Wow where do I begin. Not only did Maren do a wonderful job photographing our wedding and giving us a gift we’ll enjoy for years to come, but I felt like at the end of the process I gained a friend. Maren was so professional while still being a real person who wanted to capture real moments on our big day. I laughed and cried and couldn’t have asked for more incredible photos. She was there at all the right moments, but somehow I never saw her. Simply put Maren is the photographer everyone needs!!

 

Tessa & bruce

From our first phone call, she was personable and kind - a true partner leading up to the wedding. During our engagement session, we felt instantly comfortable with her, feeling more like a friend than a hired photographer. She has a great sense of humor and puts you at ease. We just received our wedding photos and I could not have imagined a more perfect way to remember our evening. Her photos are stunning. Maren, thank you for being such a joy to work with!

 

LUCY & CAMERON

Words cannot fully express how happy we are to have chosen Maren for our wedding day. From the very beginning of the process until the very end, she has been organized, professional, and just so, so sweet. Both during the planning process, and on the actual wedding day, she was able to deal with the craziness and last-minute issues that arose, with a smile and a plan. We now call her the “photo ninja” because not only did she get the discussed shots, but because we were surprised with a few we didn’t even know she was around for! She captured every single special moment ..and then some! We wouldn’t hesitate for a second to recommend her for your wedding day!

KELSEY & JAYMZ

I highly recommend Maren to any brides looking to capture AMAZING photos on your special day. Maren was able to capture so many special moments filled with so much emotion. We are grateful we will be able to look back on these photos and remember all the feels on our day. She was responsive, easy to work with and has been more than flexible throughout the pandemic!

 

TRISHA & JIM

My husband and I are high school sweethearts and had never had our photos taken until our engagement photos. Maren made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. Leading up to the wedding, we met to talk about final details and you could see that Maren was so excited for our day and we could tell how passionate she is about her work. On our wedding day, Maren captured every detail right down to the midnight kiss on New Years and my sparkly sneakers. She remained calm all day and it kept us all at ease. When we received our wedding gallery, it just took our breath away. It was everything that we had thought and more.

 

Kendall & Tyler

Maren Kathleen is simply amazing; our experience with her was nothing short of perfect. Maren was so kind, patient, fun to be with, and above all, willing to do anything to get the shot! She was able to beautifully capture our love on our wedding day. We are so thankful for her and all of the hard work she put in to our photos. Thank you!!!!

jillian & gary

Maren was so wonderful to work with from the very start. She is quick to respond and gives a lot of good feedback in how to properly set up a day of timeline. On a day where emotions are running so high her calm nature allowed me to feel so comfortable. Her assistant was also a joy to work with she took amazing photos of my infant son which is no easy task! Picking Maren was one of the best vendor choices that I made through the whole wedding planning process!

 

courtney & joseph

Maren was an absolute DREAM to work with. Photography was my #1 thing and as soon as we spoke to Maren over the phone I felt like she was the right choice. My (now) husband and I didn't even want engagement photos but since they came with the package, we did them and BOY are we glad we did. We had the most fun spending the day with Maren, and she even climbed up a mountain for us for her first time (--sorry Maren for nearly killing you). I thought the engagement photos were the best things in the whole world until our WEDDING DAY. She so perfectly captured our day, and the small moments during it. I still stare at our photos nearly daily and my wedding was like 6 months ago. Maren is such a joy and seriously captures the right moments. THANK YOU MAREN

 

sam & josh

Maren did an amazing job photographing our wedding!! She does everything possible to make sure her clients are happy and I was incredibly lucky to book her on short notice! Five weeks prior to our wedding my old photographer made my worst nightmare come true and she claimed that she double booked our wedding date so she could no longer be our photographer. That is when Maren stepped in and saved the day. She heard about the awful circumstance that I was put in and she managed to jump right in and agreed to work our wedding with about 4 weeks notice. On the day of our wedding everything went smoothly and our photographs turned out amazing!! I would highly recommend her!

 

nicole & brian

Honestly words can't describe how perfectly Maren and her team captured our wedding day! Maren was able to capture the true essence, love, and energy that filled our day, and made us feel really comfortable. All of our friends and family keep complimenting the beautiful pictures from our wedding day! Maren worked with us when we changed our wedding plans to a micro-wedding due to the global pandemic. Maren is a true pleasure to talk to and work with. She was timely in all communication leading up to our big day. We highly recommend Maren and we cannot say enough good things about her!

 

sarah & chris

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.

 

AShleigh & Maurice

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!
