Capturing life's most cherished moments

Welcome! Come stay awhile...


Check out the video below to see me in action!

Each and every wedding and photo session I capture is unique.
Your wedding or family portrait session images will be
personally curated and stylized by me.

through my pre-session planning questionnaire (& optional consultation),
coaching you through your photoshoot & designing one of a kind artwork
for your home, all performed at my New Jersey newborn & family photography studio.

Let’s connect today so that I can create a
custom photographic experience
for you & your loved ones
that you will cherish forever!

I will guide you every step of the way

After your session, you are invited back to my studio (or we can meet via Zoom) so that I may guide you through choosing the best ways to display & preserve the images from your session.

The Studio

If you are booking a studio session, you will be traveling to my home studio in Chadwick Beach. (Toms River, NJ 08735).

Here, you will not only feel right at home because I am able to provide you with the simple amenities of a home (boppy, bottle warmer, changing table, fridge, couch, etc...); I believe it also provides an unparalleled level of trust to those that may not know me personally prior to our session because my studio is on the same property as my home.

I do not take my career lightly. Handing your brand new baby that you have been carefully caring for since you found out you were pregnant to a new person, professional or not, can be a little unsettling.

Rest assured that I am thoroughly trained to be handling your little one safely throughout the session. I am also fully vaccinated & insured.

Welcome to my studio! 

I offer a wide selection of fine art prints, canvas, wood, acrylic, metal, and more, as well as, keepsake albums.
For additional details on products and to book your wedding or newborn photography session,
please feel free to contact me via my contact form on this site. I will reply within 48 hours.

All of the products that I offer were hand selected & are unique heirlooms for you & your family to cherish forever.

You’re welcome to book a complimentary planning & design consultation so that I can assist you selecting the right sizes and materials for your custom artwork. Contact me today to begin planning your session!

Let's Connect!

meet Marianne

My name is Marianne Bley. Some refer to me as a Professional Wedding Crasher, others The Baby Whisperer.

I have been building relationships and delivering spectacular wedding experiences to couples for the last 12 years. I have photographed over 300 weddings and have an extensive list of testimonials across the web.

4 years ago, I took the leap into specializing in newborns as well. I have spent this time working side by side with doctors and nurses in my local hospitals, as well as, taking private training lessons with various newborn specialists and leaders in the newborn photography industry to learn everything I can about these beautiful little people. Since then, I have photographed over 3,000 babies!

My work doesn't stop there, I assist clients in designing stunning displays to grace the walls of their home and/or business. By utilizing their personal style and color palette when planning their session, I am able to create displays that fit seamlessly into their current home decor. 

Whether you are looking to show off that new flashy new engagement ring or celebrate the growth of your family, I am your girl!
