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.

Arriving to Meghan and Cole's home the weather was sunny day a bit beyond humid but it is July. Thunderstorms were in the forecast but there was a tent all set up and the altar was underneath so we were prepared!
