JENNIFER & SHAWN

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!!! ❤️

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.

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.

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.

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 13 years. I have photographed over 350 weddings and have an extensive list of testimonials across the web.

5 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 3,500 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 your personal style and color palette when planning your session, I am able to create displays that fit seamlessly into your  current home decor. 

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

Hey!

I invite you to continue to explore my site and if my work speaks to you, I would love for you to contact me to discuss a custom portrait experience for your family.

“Photography is a way of feeling,
of touching, of loving.
What you have caught on film is captured forever…
it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
