Hi, I’m Marianne. I am a wedding photographer based in Lake Macquarie, NSW, Australia. I shoot weddings all over the Hunter Valley, Lake Macquarie, Newcastle, Port Stephens and Central Coast and beyond. I can also shoot destination weddings.
A little about me:
When I am not shooting weddings I work in a photo lab called Pro-Am, shoot film for fun, spend time with my husband Julian exploring, traveling and hiking, hanging out with my sister and snuggling with my two cats Ninja and Bobo. My favourite place to travel to is the South Island of New Zealand, particularly, Hanmer Springs, Queenstown, Wanaka and Lake Tekapo and I hope to shoot a wedding there one day.
The wedding experience:
I love nature and that influences my photography a lot. I love adventurous couples who are keen to get off the beaten track for their photos. I shoot weddings in a natural style with just the right balance of candid and posed photos and I always try to make it as enjoyable as I can! I tell my couples to almost (but not completely!) ignore me and just enjoy the quiet first moments as a married couple together before you head back to the party. This enables me to get some beautiful, natural and in the moment photos. My Husband assists and sometimes second shoots at weddings with me. We love to hear each couple’s unique stories and get to know you seeing as we are the only vendors that will spend pretty much the entire day with you. Building a rapport with you is really important to us and enables us to capture the emotions of the day on a level that someone who you’ve hardly spoken to about anything but booking details and only just met could.
If you think that we might be a good fit for your wedding day, please don’t hesitate to say hello and we can get to know each other.
