Mariel O. Couples - are you them?

January 13, 2021

In gearing up for my most recent wedding season I wanted to reflect on all the couples I've met so far (5 years worth!)- all seem so different not just in the wedding day details but personalities. When potential couples inquire with me I try my best to have the first interaction/consultation with them face-to-face (hopefully in person, but usually via face time). I know in this age no one like talking on the phone and texting is the preferred method or even email but I find this time crucial. It is important to get a feel for your wedding photographer and no pun intended, click with them. I am there the whole day not only taking photos but telling your story and the details of the day. If we don't get along (I have a good track record though) then the whole day could be uncomfortable.

I pride myself on being very communicative with my couples. I am a former bride and now being in the industry I have seen a lot in my few short years capturing weddings. I've seen intimate weddings with 7 people as well as 200+ in various venues including mountain parks, breweries and elegant ballrooms.

You might be a #marielocouple if you:

  • Love pretty details but aren't caught up in having everything perfect
  • Don't mind getting your dress dirty if it mean an epic shot
  • If Joanna and Chip are relationship goals
  • Will get goofy with me and bear witness at my dance moves
  • Quote random movies & tv shows -- especially Parks & Rec
  • Are getting married to your favorite person
  • Including your fur kids in your big day is important

More About 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.
