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.

This love story took 20 years to make in final, but it was one big celebration! All the family and friends showered this couple and the dance floor was hopping.

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!

Backyards make the best venues! This wedding wouldn't have been made possible without the love and support of family and friends. All the details came together perfectly from the polaroid snapshots to the delicious clambake and lobster for dinner!

The weather had threats of thunderstorms right during portrait time but on my drive up to Union Station in Northampton, Massachusetts it stormed for 5 minutes at the boarder and cleared right up. The sun came full force and brought the humidity too!

Who plans a wedding during a pandemic and then decide to move into a new home a week before the date?! Sarah and Tony said I do with their closest family and friends around and did it flawlessly.

Another Covid couple couldn't keep them from getting married and starting their forever together. There were many changes prior to this day from venues to amount of coverage but the day turned out just as they hoped. My regular second shooter and friend, Courtney did a great job capturing these for me on my behalf.

Can this year get any harder when it comes to wedding planning?! When there is a tropical storm 5 days before your day when most of the state doesn't have power could't throw these two from making it official!
