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.

When your bride texts you about switching locations of the session a few days prior you let her know you are on board, especially if it's at one of your favorite Connecticut parks! If you know me you know Elizabeth Park is where it's at with so many options for all types of sessions. It's where I got married and had my own engagement session

Autumn is in full swing and this month has been packed with weddings and sessions. I have kept working from home and quarantining as best a possible but towards the end of the month was getting itchy. Thankful for a world where there are Octobers.

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.

This month has all been about social distancing, my dogs, a bit of days off and lots of doctor appointments.

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.

Hottest month of the year and the hits just kept on coming with a tropical storm to kick us off but by the end it lead to cooler mornings and evenings around the fire!

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!
