Capturing the Beauty of Love, Life, and Faith

As Seen In

Behind the Lens.

I’m Marlaina, and I am thrilled you’re here!

When you think about your most treasured possessions, what comes to mind?

Many people say their photos.

Photos that bring them back to life’s most memorable moments.

For over a decade, I’ve been fortunate to witness and capture those special moments for my clients.

I specialize in Catholic wedding photography. As a lifelong practicing Catholic, I understand the intimate details of the ceremony and how to capture them while respecting the Church.

When I’m not working with newly engaged couples, I offer portrait services for families, high school seniors, sacraments, and personal branding — on-site at your location or my studio in Shelby Township.

Only the best for your once-in-a-lifetime memories.

Once a shy high school senior, I came out of my shell after having my own senior portraits taken. The photographer I worked with went the extra mile to make me feel completely comfortable and confident. That day, I realized I wanted others to experience something so transformative — and I wanted to be the one to help them.

No matter the session type, I take the time to get to know my clients before their shoot. This makes your session all the more comfortable by getting acquainted ahead of time. I’ll take what I learn from you to ensure your shoot best highlights your personality.

As a true professional photographer, I double as a hype girl, wedding planner, personal consultant, and more. No matter the occasion, I’ll be there every step of the way! Whatever it takes to ensure your session is not just successful but playful and FUN — I’m your girl!
