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.

Really enjoy getting to a wedding day and having my couples feel like friends to me. These two are just warm and genuine and capturing this day was very laid back and full of family

More and more I realize how special it is to be let into these family celebrations. Rachel, Michael and their daughter Madeline made it official at Water's Edge Resort in Westbrook, Connecticut on a perfect summer day!
