Meet your photographer
Hey, I'm Marien! Nice to meet you. If you're wondering who's behind the camera, you came to the right place. To sum me up in an "about me" section is nearly impossible, but here are a few things you must know.
I was born and raised in Cabimas, Venezuela. At 25 years old, I came to the United States. Why? I took a leap of faith for love. I married my best friend only a year and a half after meeting him for the first time. So because of my Latino roots, I'm very passionate about love and helping people to uplift themselves. Being so emotional and passionate about every wedding or couple I shoot is my superpower! Trust me, if your wedding has all the feels, I will be there crying with you (father/daughter dances always hit me in the feels 😭).
Through my guidance, you will discover how to be comfortable in your own skin and your pictures will turn out amazing. What else can I do? Well my unlimited curiosity turns me into a CIA agent where I’ll research everything that you want so I can deliver the perfect results. My goal is to bring value to you. I’m an open book too. If you want to talk about traveling, places to eat around Pittsburgh, Tequila, or COOKIES, we HAVE to sit down for coffee (and make sure it's a long meeting). And I'm a music snob as well. I listen to Reggaeton, House, Rock, and Pop (Backstreet Boys, here I go).
The reason I gravitate towards wedding photography is because I love to support others. And what better way to be in a support role than to help someone celebrate one of the most memorable moments of their lives. I want to be the Lorelai to your team (if you watched Gilmore Girls, you get me). I want to see you all have a fantastic time, and I want you to look back at your pictures and feel the day. And that's me.
Let's connect and share this special moment of your life...JUNTOS!

Marien did an absolutely phenomenal job capturing our wedding. Her dedication and enthusiasm from start to finish made the whole process enjoyable and the finished photos came out amazing. I couldn't recommend her highly enough.

We had the BEST time with Marien while she did our photo shoot!! She made us comfortable even before we met with her (telling us what to expect, what to wear and to remember to have fun with it!) When we met she had us laughing from start to finish. She made sure we were comfortable with our poses and if there was something we didn’t like she made sure to find a different way or angle. Marien made our first experience in getting professional photos done a great experience and a day we will always look back on and remember! She was so professional, fun and even brought music which we loved. While looking through our photos we were smiling the whole time remembering the fun and silly moments we had because of Marien. I can’t wait to book another photo shoot with her soon!
