At my very core, I am an artist. As a graphic design student, I fell in love with the creative process of thinking conceptually and creating things that are beautiful to look at but while working in a commercial portrait studio in college, I realized that photography was my true passion. After spending several years in the printing industry as a graphic designer I created Imagery By Marianne, a service-based boutique photography studio located on Chadwick Beach Island in Toms River, NJ.

Since it’s inception, I have focused on specializing in wedding photography. I became fascinated with working with couples & assisting them in making their wedding vision come to life. Over time, I began slowly expanding my specialization to maternity & newborn photography. As I have grown “up” & expanded my own family, I have become more and more inspired by the natural beauty in maternity & newborn photography and as I move into the next chapter of my own life, I want to celebrate not only the joining of families but also celebrating the expanding of families.

My philosophy is simple. I want you to share in an experience with me.

Whether it be the joining of two families or the expansion of a family, I want you to:

be yourself
feel confident & beautiful in your own skin 
walk away feeling genuinely excited about our next session


All of the products that I offer were hand selected & are unique heirlooms for you & your family to cherish forever. 
From loose & boxed prints, canvas, wood, burlap, acrylic & metal.
