Meet Mariel

This blog is a small representation of my most current sessions, my clients love stories and all the adventures I am privilaged to go on! Ways to my heart include coffee, feeding me before I am "hangry" and anything shabby chic/rustic. My vintage camera collection grows everday and I am usually smiling and quoting random movies. Most importantly Mariel O. Photo celebrates love in all forms regardless of race, religion, or sexual orientation & gender identity.

I decided to highlight some of my favorite Connecticut venues that I've worked at over the years. Up first is rustic charm of The Lodge at Maneely's.

What is flat lay fun mean? If you aren't a photographer that must be your first thought. Well this is when I lay out all the pretty details that you've carefully chosen for your wedding day. There are shoes, perfume, watches, invitation suites, heirloom jewelry, the list goes on and on!

One of my favorite parts of the ceremony is the vows. To be honest the ceremony is the start of the marriage and hearing the words that are exchanged really gets me in my feels.

Digital Media is always changing so printing your memories is becoming more important than ever. Remember when something on a CD was the best way to have your images?! When you are a Mariel O. couple I now offer prints, canvases and albums to create your first family heirloom. Something to show your future children or thank your parents for one of the best days.

Don't let your memories die in a digital wasteland of your phone's camera roll and your computer's hard drive. Let them live in prints! All my client's images are put in an online gallery connected to store with a professional lab where you can purchase prints and products like canvases.
