Say Hello

Let's connect today to plan an in-person or over the phone wedding consultation so you can decide if we are a good fit.

This also gives you an opportunity to share all about you and your wedding day, while you get to know me as well.
Feel free to ask a million and one questions.
I'm happy to answer them. 

Your Engagement Session

Get pampered and ready for a super fun evening out. Get your hair and makeup done and make it a date night. Let's meet up an hour or so before sunset and celebrate you and your unique love story! Pick a location that means something to you or reflects your personality and afterward, have a great dinner out without any wedding day talk.

This is the perfect opportunity to get comfortable in front of the camera before your big day and it gives us an opportunity to get to know each other, a major win win!

Keeping In Touch

One month before your big day, I will send you a wedding day questionnaire to confirm the timeline previously discussed at the time of  booking and details of your big day. Typically, at the time of booking a lot of the little details are not decided upon yet (hotel accommodations, family photo lists, etc...) This is the time for me to receive that information and have it outlined for myself and any staff that I may bring on the day of.

Your Wedding Day!

Hooray! The day is finally here! 
Now is the time to sit back, relax and get pampered!
Your going to have the BEST day of your LIFE!

Have a glass of champange and enjoy your friends and family while you prepare for my arrival.

Once I arrive, I will spend time photographing all of your special details and your day will commence!

Your Photographs

After your wedding day, you will receive an email from me Thanking you for having myself and my team at your special life-changing event and I will provide you with the timeframe that you should expect your wedding photos by. I typically like to have them back to you by the 1 month anniversary. From experience, most couples celebrate the one month anniversary night with a special date night. My sappy romantic heart thinks it's the perfect night to reminisce by viewing your photos for the first time!

"Just to be clear the pictures are amazing but the relationship behind it is even better!"


Marianne went over and beyond what we were expecting from our wedding photographer!! Our wedding was last min and she came highly recommended by another friend photographer who was already booked for our date. So we took a leap of faith and went for it! She was so accommodating, and very professional! When I met with her she was very sweet and warm towards me and my kids! It's not ideal to bring small children to discuss business of any sort, but I was left with no other option, and Marianne made it work! I'm very greatful for that!! She held my hand and walked me through everything, explained everything to me... There was never a point where I didn't know exactly what was going on! I was already extremely impressed before the wedding day!

Wedding Day- Wow.. Just wow.. Her and her assistant did such an amazing job! Just to be clear the pictures are amazing but the relationship behind it is even better! Me and me husband were both so relaxed... It didn't feel strange or awkward.. She and her assistant Jess had us cracking up the whole time! (Made some pretty awesome pictures) she gave us great direction to get "the shot" and other times it was just us being us and she was able to capture that beautifully! I didn't give her a lot to work with and I'm still amazed by what she was able to do. My whole family just loved her! I just love her!! I would highly recommend her to anyone!!! Thank you Marianne!! I'm so glad the photographer was booked or else I never would have met you!!! ❤️

"Not only was the final result exactly what I wanted, but Marianne was wonderful throughout the whole wedding process."


Our wedding photography was one of the most important things to me in the whole wedding process. Marianne delivered. Her pictures are stunning, bridal-magazine/print journalism worthy. I will run out of wall space before I run out wedding pictures I want to hang. Not only was the final result exactly what I wanted, but Marianne was wonderful throughout the whole wedding process. Our engagement session was a great primer for the wedding day. And on the wedding day, despite horrible weather, her and her team figured out picture locations while being conscious of our timeline. It really helps to have experienced professionals surrounding you on your day, especially when you don't have a wedding/venue coordinator.

"Our guests haven't stopped talking about our wedding photos."


Marianne and her team were such a pleasure to work with. Marianne was great throughout the process and we loved her from our very first meeting. She has great ideas and so much talent and she also makes sure that your personality shines through as well. All of the photographers were on time and balanced photos between practical images and beautiful, artsy images. I also found Imagery by Marianne to be a great value in a very competitive market! No other photographers offered as much as she did at this price point.

"Our pictures turned out beautifully, and we've received endless comments on just what a great job Marianne did!"

Christine & Geno

I would recommend Marianne to anyone who asked - her skills, talent, professionalism, and kindness far surpassed what we expected. Marianne is a true professional through and through, but is also extremely personable and friendly and puts you at ease. I was anxious about having my picture taken all day, but Marianne (and her team) made the process as easy as possible, and the results were amazing - our pictures turned out beautifully, and we've received endless comments on just what a great job Marianne did! She's got such a great eye for detail and I'm so happy we chose Marianne to photograph our big day - I can't say enough about her and her work.

Frequently Asked Questions & Answers

Q: How long have you been a photographer?
A: I technically learned how to take a proper film photograph while attending Monmouth University throughout 2000-2004 and while finishing school, I worked in a commercial portrait studio. Soon after, I started photographing weddings and babies while working as a full time graphic designer. When I had my first child, I decided to focus my time and energy on PHOTOGRAPHY & PEOPLE.

Q: How many weddings have you photographed?
A: I've photographed over 200 weddings as a lead photographer. Since there are only 52 weekends in a year, it is safe to say my weekends have been filled with love stories and late-night celebrations ever since I became a photographer 12+ years ago!

Q: Do I need an engagement session?
A: That totally depends on your needs. Most couples that book an engagement session use their photographs for their save-the-dates, website registries, guest books, framed prints for their guest tables, bar, and their house... and of course Facebook & Instagram! Plus, it's a way for you to get a little practice in front of the camera before your big day and it gives us an opportunity to get to know each other. :)

Q: Do you offer payment plans?
A: Yes, I do! Traditional payments are 50% due at the time of booking (within a week) and the final 50% is due 14 days prior to your wedding day. But, if you wanted to do a payment plan, I can stretch it into equal 1/3's or 1/4's if that works best for you. Just let me know what you prefer, and I will make it happen. It's that easy.

Q: How do I book you for my wedding day?
A: Love that question the most! To book me for your special day, simply let me know what you want included in your custom collection:
• Number of hours of coverage
• Engagement session (optional)
• Second photographer or none (optional)
• What payment plan option works best for you

I will need your full name and email address to send the proposal to.

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!
