About Mariel

First of all, thank you for finding my website whether it be by fate or intervention I am happy you are here.

About pages are hard to write! How am I to explain my goofy chaotic life in a little bit of space?

I call Middletown, Connecticut home with my family! My husband is nothing but supportive and my children include our IVF angel daughter and our fur children. I am a go with the flow type of woman and really enjoy viewing the world through a camera lens in some unique ways.

Tell me where & I'm there! Traveling & exploring is the best part of being a photographer & my passport is up to date!

These are some things I like!

We Become Friends
You've found me, explored my site and inquired! Now we set up a consultation where I hear all about the details (Zoom is great)! It's ok if you don't have it all planned just yet...I just want to hear your story &get to know your relationship. It’s important for you and your photog to click (ya I'm a bit cheesy) but I'm the vendor with you the WHOLE day!


We Become Official
We've had our consultation and you two have talked it over & decided I'm your girl and therefore I do a little dance! A booking proposal electronically sent that includes the contract & invoice. Once it's signed and retainer is paid, we are officially official! All of the documents are kept in a password protected portal for reference.


We Hang Out
We get together 6-8 months prior to your wedding day for your engagement session! It is the perfect time to hang out and is a perfect ice breaker especially if you're not used to being in front of a camera professionally. I strive to use posing techniques that doesn't feel forced. Most galleries are delivered within 1-2 weeks of our time together


Pre-Wedding Day
Leading up to the day I make sure to have another consultation to firm up details. A questionnaire is sent to make sure we are on the same page as far as times, locations and your other vendors.


The Big Day
Let's do it! This day is all that you planned and hoped for. I show up, meet your amazing family & friends and look for those in between moments you don't want to forget.


Your Images
Gallery delivery day is my favorite day! Your full resolution images are sent via a password protected gallery with 4-6 weeks. All images are edited to match my photographic style.


Your 1st Family Album
I adore albums and I want you to as well. My top collection has them included! All you do is go through your gallery and mark a heart on your favorites. I take those and design a spread and sent the proof. You can make up to 3 revisions and then I order! It is sent right to the address I have on file at no extra charge!


& Beyond
My hope is that when your album is delivered that you come back for other milestones. I love to shoot my couples celebrating their anniversaries, when their family grows or seeing them for holiday sessions. It is always a good time for photos!
