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 year has been one wild ride for every business owner. In addition to the last year reschedules I had a pregnancy to handle while giving my couples the best experience! I think I managed pretty well and have some beautiful moments to share with you all during my End of Year Review. There was so many kind families and deserving couples and thrilled everyone got their dream days!

Well December here we are! The end of the year definitely came out of nowhere like it tends to do! We are all still in the Covid pandemic and really hoping we can live a new normal very soon.

My favorite month of all was spent eating a good amount of food, spending time with a lot of friends and waiting not so patiently for our daughter to arrive!

Literally can't get over these images from my vendor friend Keeley Abigail Photography. I knew I wanted her not only for her great work but because of the full circle moment! She was the second photographer from our wedding 7 years ago!

Closed out 2021 wedding season with a classic autumn wedding at the stunning Wadsworth Mansion. There was dancing under the stars, an emotional first look and a magical evening with the best couple!

Autumn weddings in New England is what we live for in this industry. It's the busiest time of the year because everyone wants those colors to make their images pop! Christa and Ryan had that great day with sun, some clouds and a bit of heat!

My couples choose the best places to get married! Two Roads Brewing in Stratford was intimate and the weather couldn't have been better.

Can you stand this perfect family?! I know you have seen Aspen and Michael in my Instagram feed and all over my portfolio! It's because they are my very first #MOPcouple and I really only do family photos for them.
