Capturing just the right moments, with creativity and caring...
Photographing life events for over 30 years, I have developed a talent for showing people in their best light, highlighting their most flattering features, and all in a laid back way that makes my clients feel totally at ease, with a few laughs to boot!
Let's start the conversation! I always prefer to first get acquainted with my clients to hear about their photography wish list.
I have now had the pleasure of working with Marcie on two occasions, and I cannot say enough about how pleased and satisfied I was with her work. The first was a 3-day choral music festival that I organize, where she was on her feet from 2pm to 11pm, capturing thousands of moments both onstage and off. She got magnificent pictures of the artists, despite their movement on stage and the dim lighting. She also captured them offstage, and creatively used a black portion of a wall to take portfolio-worthy pictures of the choirs. She was tireless throughout the whole festival, and always remained professional. Her movements were discreet and unobtrusive, and her camera was silent. She was also extremely nice to work with, taking instruction well and yet adding in her own intuitive sense of what to capture. I was so pleased with my experience working with Marcie, that I asked her to be the photographer at my wedding a few months later. This turned out to be an excellent decision too! Once again she was on her feet all day, this time from 9am to 11pm, during which she barely took a single break. There are many challenges during a wedding: balancing pictures of family, friends, the couple, as well as the surroundings and food, and capturing the tenderness of a ceremony as well as the jubilation during the reception, and doing all of this despite many different voices telling you what to do and who to photograph. Marcie did it all, and gracefully so. She stayed calm while others were stressed, and used a multitude of tricks to keep people smiling and hugging for pictures. She has a beautiful way of being soft but firm in her instructions, like "turn those hips this way", "put your hand here", etc. Never does it feel like she's giving orders, but everyone follows her commands effortlessly.In short, I have nothing but praise for Marcie, for the quality of her work and for her excellent communication and interpersonal skills. I would recommend her highly to anyone (and have done so multiple times!) and look forward to working with her again.Michael
