Marsha Is Marvelous!

What was your favorite wedding photo?

Too many to choose from!

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Marsha was wonderful. She was helpful and available, yet never obtrusive or disruptive. She was able to capture all of the wonderful, memorable moments.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

Our wedding package was incredibly, reasonably priced. We received engagement photos with an album, a photo with matte for signatures at the wedding, wedding photos with album, online proofing, and CDs of all the photos.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Everyone loved Marsha! We received so many compliments from several guests at the wedding. Marsha is prepared for everything. One of the bridesmaids was having dress issues and needed double stick tape, Marsha had it. I needed scissors, Marsha had them. She even had wet wipes in case anyone got their clothes dirty (which did happen). She was even pinning on corsages and boutonnières for the wedding party. She is always pleasant and makes the whole experience so much fun. We would definitely use Marsha again in the future. We have already recommended her.

Our 15th year wedding vow renewal ceremony

What was your favorite wedding photo?

I asked Masha to take fairy tale. romantic pictures as though it was a dream. My Favorite wedding photo is one that Marsha took is a close up of my husband and I while we were in a seated position, turned to each other, just inches away from a very romantic kiss. Marsha is stand behind us, so all you see are our profiles with my husband stroking my face, AND It is done in black and white. We look like we are on the cover of a wedding magazine it's the most GORGEOUS and romantic setup I have ever seen. No one could have topped this. The best part of this picture is that I don't even remember posing for this and it looks like it's a candid shot.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Marsha came right in with her previous experience as a wedding consultant and helped us with every llittle detail we needed that day. When she was not helping us with the details, I didn't even notice she was there. This was not evident to me until I got my photo CD's back and saw pictures I had no idea she had taken. The best part about that was she was able to get candid pictures and pictures of all of my family members. I will have those memories of our wedding and my family who were there to share that day with me for the rest of my life.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

I received 7 CD's with a over a 1000 pictures on them, and my choice of 111 of those pictures of my choice to have professionally developed.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Marsha treated us like we had known her all of our lives. A well planned wedding is one of the most stressfull day of a couples life. Every bride wants everything to be perfect. I really felt that she was such a big help and tried to accomodate my wants and needs.

What was your favorite wedding photo?

If I had to pick one, it would be one that was taken on the freeway bridge. Marsha is very creative and has an eye for the perfect scenery. She drove us over to the bridge and got some amazing pictures.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Besides the group and couple pictures, I did not even notice that she was there. She did a fantastic job staying on schedule and making sure that we got all the pictures that we wanted. Marsha did a wonderful job with all the different types of pictures. I do not care to have my picture taken a lot, but she made it fun and exciting!

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

In our package we received proofs of all 1600 pictures in an album, all pictures on CD's, coffee table book, engagement pictures with all the proofs in an album, an 11x14 engagement photo framed and matted, and six hours of time on the day of the wedding.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Marsha was great with our families. She was funny, energetic, and very careful to meet everyone's standards. She really took the time to get to know us, and what we wanted.

Even my husband still talks about her....

What was your favorite wedding photo?

My groomsmen are a wild bunch and she got a shot of them with the groom. You can read each of their personalities, but they all still look sophisticated. I'm not even in the picture and I love it.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

She was professionally dressed. She had no equipment to set up and take down. She made sure to talk to me as we walked from place to place and kept my maid of honor, husband and myself in the loop on her plans. She had some great candid shots of my aunts and uncles dancing. There is one picture in the middle of my sisters speech that I swear we could have been posing. I love it! After the ceremony she took a million shots of my husband and myself. I had such a hard time deciding what ones to choose for my albums they were all well done.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

We had her for 4 hours, unlimited shots with a CD and printing rights. I wish I had done my engagement pictures with her. At the wedding she arrived early and even stayed later than her contract. Our reception was still going when she left so she made sure to get mock leaving photos before she left.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Marsha was perfection! She made us all laugh, took control of the situation to have beautiful and efficient pictures. My husband and groomsmen bring her up anytime we talk about the wedding. They thought she was both laid back and professional. A great combo for my family. Even more impressive, the wedding coordinator for the location was lacking in her abilities to do her job. Marsha stepped up! She showed us how to stand and gave timing for entrances. She told us how to sign the wedding certificate. She has this Batman Utility belt that had everything. tissue, a place for my make up, scissors, tape, any time i said "Does someone have...?" There was Marsha, I wanted to know where she kept her Shark Repellent.

She's a WOW !!!

What was your favorite wedding photo?

The bride running out the door with me lying on the floor grabbing at the train of her dress. - What an expression on the brides face.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Who would have thought - photo's before the wedding. It wroked really well. - Never even knew she was there - unless she was moving people in and out of a photo. - What organizational skill. She really knows her stuff.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

Album (400), then almost 1,000 total photo's. CD. Rights to CD photo's (Which I wouldn't have thought we needed). - She wears a tool belt, takes photo's and helps the bride in a multitude of things including anything a bride would ever need. She was the handiest photographer I have ever seen.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

She was at our disposal, and went way out of her way to make our day special. The photo's were amazing, and she is extremely creative. We couldn't be happier.

Marsha, Marsha, Marsha is Magnificent!

What was your favorite wedding photo?

Wow! There are so many to choose from - 1400 pictures and so many of them amazing! The one we wound up putting in the newspaper is just a classic photograph of the two of us looking straight into the camera, but the moment is truly captured.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Marsha added to the day, never disrupting any moment. She had a pen when we didn't, had a bracelet for my daughter, and added humor when we needed it! She was amazing with her candid shots and her action shots were captured just perfectly. I love the group shots - all taken at the perfect time - no one with their eyes closed, etc.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

Engagement pictures, CD's, release, photo album, extra prints, CD's, release, two photographers were used at our wedding.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Marsha directed the group photographs in such an organized way. It never felt pushy, everyone was laughing and enjoying themselves. The photographs taken while the girls were getting ready were fantastic. The photographs before, during and after the wedding were done with such ease.

Unparalleled Photography--The Best in Arizona!

What was your favorite wedding photo?

With almost 1200 photos taken, it would be hard to pick just one. However, one of the top favorites showed my husband dipping me in a very romantic kiss.

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

I couldn't tell you. Marsha was there when I needed her (with a safety pin when my bustle fell), and she was a "stealth" photographer the rest of the time. Somehow, she managed to get the best shots (candids, action, and portraits) without getting in the way. Even our wedding video gave no evidence of her presence.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

Engagement pics, CD's with all pics, and a coffee table album were included.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

She is very personable. She took the time before the wedding to find out what shots we wanted. She communicated with the other vendors and was prepared for every important moment of the day.

Marsha is Magnificent!

What was your favorite wedding photo?

I cannot choose only one photo. We had over 900+ photos taken of our wedding and they all turned out very nice. We had a very difficult time choosing the portrait we wanted to display on our wall because there were so many greay photos. Ultimately, we chose 3 of our favorites to have framed. All of the pictures look amazing!

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Marsha did a wonderful job at capturing priceless moments and making sure that all of the photos appeared to be natural and not overly posed. We have a wonderful variety of portraits, artistic shots, action shots, and many candids. The array of photos that we received is absolutely amazing.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

In our wedding package we received all of our proofs (over 900 photos) with a digital DVD and permission to duplicate any of the photos that we wanted. Marsha includes a statement with her proofs stating that you are the owner of the pictures and have the rights to do whatever you wish with them. We also received several 8X10 prints, 5X7 prints, wallets, and an enlarged engagement photo that was matted and framed. Our engagement sitting was included in our wedding package and we also have about 100 proofs from that.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Marsha arrived prepared with everything we could possibly need for the ceremony. If one of my bridesmaids had a snag in her dress, she had the materials to fix it. When my flowers (roses) rubbed off on my white gown, she was ready with wipes to eliminate the stain. Marsha made the picture taking fun and enjoyable and we were all extremely comfortable with her. We were all at ease with Marsha and we had fun. This definitely shows in our pictures!

The best photographer in Arizona!

What was your favorite wedding photo?

There were no bad pictures, they were all amazing. Marsha managed to capture us in a way that was not posed. Our favorite picture, if we can only pick one were at sunset by the fountain. Marsha captured our day in a way that makes me smile evey time I look at a photo!

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Marsha was everywhere, yet not disruptive. She was quick so family was not standing around waiting to change shots or for her to change lenses. I don't know how she did it, but she captured evey moment and was never disruptive!

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

Marsha has AMAZING packages. She sat down with us to determine what we wanted, shots that were our "must haves" and ways to capture moments that were not staged. Our package included our engagement shots, a framed matted picture to sign at the reception, close to 2000 shots that we got hard copies of (yep...all of them ladies) a photo album, disks with all the engagement and wedding pictures and she collaborated with our videographer on the day of. Lets not forget all the amazing special colorized pics and the 8X10's, 5X7's and wallets. Not overpriced at all, espically for what you get.

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Marsha is great. She is organized, kept me focused and calm but she is fun and funny and it was just like having a sister to help me out. She was not only our photographer but our seamstress (fixed my dress that ripped at the reception), our coordinator (making sure we were where we needed to be, with altoids on hand in many flavors) and our friend. Nearly a year after being married, my husband and I still talk to Marsha on a regular basis and really do consider her a friend. I will absolutely be calling Marsha for any pictures we need in the future. She is amazing. You will love all your pictures! I highly reccomend Marsha. If you want to look back on your wedding and have amazing pictures...Marsha is your girl. She is awesome and so are her pictures!

Memories By Marsha

What was your favorite wedding photo?

There was way to many to chose from. Marsha did such a great job giving us a variety of wedding pictures that both my husband and I havent been able to decide yet whcih one is our favorite!

How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits?

Marsha has you fill out a sheet of photos you would "for sure" want to have her take. She makes sure she gets those ones taken and throughout takes her own photos, not only of you and your soon to be spouse but she really does include all the guests and wedding party as well.

What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?

The package my husband and I choose was OUTSTANDING! It came with 1200 photos, all which Marsha providing the "hard copy" and the cd's, it came with a signature mat (which was our guest book), it comes with 8-8x10, 5-5x7 and 54 wallets AND our engagment sessions along with all the photos and an album! How can you beat all of that! AMAZING

How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?

Marsha walked right into the room where my girls and I were getting ready started off with a joke and had us all rolling with laughter! She just makes you feel so confortable, shes not pushy at all and was more prepared then the lady running the wedding at the golf course! Needless to say, Marsha is the BEST in town! I am difinitely going to be using Marhsa in the future when my husband and I start our family.
