4th Annual Paul Mitchell School Fashion Show | NJ Portrait & Event Photographer

 Good vs. Evil ~ 4th Annual Paul Mitchell School Fashion Show | NJ Portrait & Event Photographer

This was my second year photographing the Paul Mitchell School, Jersey Shore’s Annual Fashion Show. This year is the 4th year that the school has been doing this fundraiser and the theme was Good vs Evil and the event was hosted at Buona Sera Palazzo in Ocean, NJ.

Family and friends gathered for an evening of eating, drinking and raising money for several charities while adoring the amazing visions that these students came up with. Each student has to come up with a concept and design it based on the theme. The models were decked out in amazing outfits and completely kept the audience on edge and begging for more with their wild and crazy conceptual costumes. I love taking pictures for the Paul Mitchell School because the students are amazingly talented and very friendly and fun to be around.

Each year is better than the last and the talent that comes out of these students is unbelievable! I wish my artistic creativity could translate to hair style and fashion, but my creativity was just given to me in a different way.

Thank you to all of the amazing Paul Mitchell School student and faculty for making my job easy 🙂

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!
