"She went above and beyond for us on our big day"

"I cannot express how happy I am. From the beginning, Mariel was incredible to work with. She kept the communication open with us, and leading up to our event, she kept us in the loop by answering every question we had for her open and honestly. She was so open to all the ideas we had and went above and beyond for us on our big day. She captured every moment for us perfectly. When she sent us our gallery, the pictures she captured for us certainly took us back to our big day, and brought tears to my eyes. She kept us laughing all day and all night, and made us feel so unbelievably comfortable. My husband usually doesn’t like taking pictures, but he was as comfortable as can be with Mariel and her second shooter. She is professional, outgoing, open minded, and everything we could’ve asked for in a photographer. We are so happy with our choice to have Mariel capture our big day!"

"She helped capture the warmth and intimacy we feel in every day life"

"I spent a long time searching for a photographer for my wedding & engagement photos. I knew exactly what I was looking for and Mariel wasn’t afraid to jump right in. We very specifically wanted our engagement session in our home and Mariel was super accommodating. She helped capture the warmth and intimacy we feel in every day life. She captured us a couple ( which is no easy feat as I am so uncomfortable in front of a camera!)
We wanted our wedding to be small, intimate and low key. We loved that Mariel wasn’t afraid to roll with the punches and embrace our less-than-conventional event. I would highly recommend Mariel. We will definitely be contacting her again for future events!"

"She creates art with true heart"

"Mariel was the best! She is a joy to work with and has so much talent. She doesn't just take pictures of what is happening, she has an amazing artistic eye and captures the spirit of the day, in addition to the event. Her photos are fine art; however, she is not pretentious. She creates art with true heart. She has the best personality and truly cares about the couples and families she works with. Mariel is also a trustworthy professional. She is a great communicator, responsive, and does everything in a timely manner. You will love Mariel O. Photo! My husband and I are so grateful we found her!

"A pleasure to work with, very friendly and professional"

"We were very impressed with her creativity"

"Mariel was extremely professional and took beautiful pictures. We were very happy with the photos and would highly recommend her for any wedding or special event. We were very impressed with her creativity. For example, taking pictures of our rings in a variety of poses, taking candid shots of people having a good time, and especially some of the snow themed poses she thought of. She brought us a His & Hers ring dish as a gift (and to use in pictures) and even brought a bottle of champagne. I strongly recommend anyone who is having a wedding to consider her services."
