Marli is absolutely amazing! Her attention to detail is incredible!

She was able to capture so much emotion in our engagement and wedding photos. When we look at our photos we relive each moment and not just see a picture. Not only is her work on a next level, her way of working with people is on point. She makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera and you laugh non-stop! She goes the extra mile so she can capture the perfect shot. So if you want a fun and adventurous photographer who delivers phenomenal work, don't even look further! I would highly recommend Marli!

"She had the most incredible energy on the wedding day which only helped to make us feel more relaxed and confident."

We could not recommend Marli as a wedding photographer more. Our wedding photos are nothing short of spectacular! Marli's amazing handle of light and her ability to capture a moment was what attracted us to her in the first place and her delivery was even better than we could have imagined. The photos are breathtaking and we get so many compliments. But more importantly I want to talk about Marli herself. She was a joy to work with from start to finish. While her skill was what made us reach out to her in the first place it was her enthusiasm and positivism that made us sign with her. And throughout the process that positive energy never wavered for a second. She had the most incredible energy on the wedding day which only helped to make us feel more relaxed and confident. I have enjoyed this same enthusiasm in Marli even after the wedding as we received our early sneak peak, our edited photos and eventually our printed album. Thank you Marli for documenting our special day so beautifully and I really look forward to our future working together

"Her unique attention to detail and all the helpful advice that she gave us really made our day the biggest success."

She is kind, caring and a true artist. She truly cares for the couples she captures and goes above and beyond to make sure that your engagement and special day are beautifully captured. I could NOT imagine getting married without Marli’s helpful insight (she’s been part of many a wedding, so her tips are super helpful!) and the way in which she made our day, our timing and the whole process super fun. I consider our wedding photos one of my most prized possessions because of how magnificently they were captured.

"I really felt like we were hanging out with a friend on our wedding day."

Marli was our wedding photographer and even before we met her in person, we knew she was the right fit for our big day. We planned our wedding from abroad, which is scary at first, but Marli always offered to help in any way she could from giving us tips to helping with a timeline for the day. I really felt like we were hanging out with a friend on our wedding day. She made sure to give me some space when I was feeling nervous and overwhelmed before the ceremony. She made us feel so relaxed and gave us time to spend with our guests. She captured natural moments instead of awkward posed pictures. I would recommend Marli to any bride!

" Marli has mastered the balance between being a professional and an all-around fun person to be with"

Selecting a wedding photographer can be an intimidating task. I mean, that's why you're reading these reviews, right? Well, take a deep breath and relax because your search has finally ended.

Frances and I were so thrilled with everything from start to finish. Marli has mastered the balance between being a professional and an all-around fun person to be with. Frances, Marli, and I couldn't help but laugh and smile throughout the whole experience - all resulting in a stress-free wedding day with stunning and beautiful photos. Thanks to Marli, we now have a tableau of memories that Frances and I will proudly share with friends and family in the years to come.

"You've captured our day perfectly - the light, the love and all of the laughter shows in your photos."

What an amazing experience having you as our wedding photographer! So comfortable, professional, warm - from the moment we started planning until the day I received my beautiful pictures. You've captured our day perfectly - the light, the love and all of the laughter shows in your photos. Thank you for making our couples shoot on the day so special, we truly enjoyed the golden hour of bliss. You made the planning so effortless, and were so fun on the day (Lara Croft tool belt and all). Looking forward to seeing more of your work!

Marli is an incredibly talented photographer and has a beautifully passionate and kind soul.

 

She is the perfect photographer.

 

She made us feel comfortable while she captured those special and quiet moments. I'd choose her again, and again, and again...​

"Marli, your quiet way made the whole experience so easy, fun and natural - we never felt like we were "in front of the lens."

Nico and I couldn't be happier with our incredible wedding photos! Marli, your quiet way made the whole experience so easy, fun and natural - we never felt like we were "in front of the lens".

 

All the photographs are so wonderfully natural filled with incredible light - utterly beautiful. We really feel like you captured so many special moments; so many laughs; and so many memories that we will be able to look back on & cherish forever.

 

Thank you, thank you, thank you

RAFE + MELANIE

" Sometimes adding to the fun, sometimes invisible, she absolutely exceeded our expectation!" 

Mel and I are over the moon with our wedding pictures. As an Art Director by profession I work with a lot of photographers and instantly gravitated to the natural and honest style Marli captures. There's no hiding behind filters and soft blurs, just amazing light, colour management and sincere moments. The experience was that much better being put at ease (I'm a freezer). Sometimes adding to the fun, sometimes invisible, she absolutely exceeded our expectation! Do what we did, shift things around and shoot during the golden hour.
