I am european photographer who lives and works in Mexico since 2008.
I aim for timeless, understated elegance. Trends come and go, but overly stylized images can quickly become dated. I shoot the feeling of each particular wedding day so that my photographs will still hold their power in 25 years. I believe weddings should be meaningful and memorable, not perfect.
I shoot weddings from inside the party, not detached from it. I am subtle and invisible when I need to be, then very visible when necessary, like when I'm corralling bridesmaids for a group shot. I like to think that my experience adds a level of calm to the day.
Trust is so important. Couples that trust and love the images that I make and therefore are so comfortable that they can focus on the parts that really matter and soak in as much of the day as possible. A wedding day goes by quickly, and being present for it is key.

Trust our opinion! We are wedding planners!
Marina is such an incredible person. She is so kind and sincere, which I feel is an important attribute to any vendor that you will be working with on your wedding day. For so many reasons! she makes everyone feel comfortable being themselves around her.Sent on 06/03/2019
On top of that she has a spectacular eye for creativity in her shots. Her photos are still some of my favorite! I choose to use her images on a regular basis because they really capture she joy and love of her clients. She is great to work with prior to the wedding day as well. My clients and myself were so happy with her in every way. She is great at communication via phone and email which is another very important quality you want in a photographer. She is great the day of as-well, she was great at helping keep everything on schedule and keeping me in the loop if she did need or want a bit more time. I would love to work with Marina more and I would and do highly recommend her to anyone looking for an AMAZING trustworthy photographer!

From helping us pick a location which really suited our personal tastes, to making us feel comfortable and natural during our photo session, Marina did a fantastic job with our recent engagement session.
She showed up at the session and was immediately friendly, funny, and easy to work with. We walked around the small town we had chosen while she talked and joked with us and grabbed many different chances for photos of us in great lighting and surroundings. She kept the entire session feeling fresh and the time passed quickly yet she managed to take a pile of great photos that are beautiful and fit us so perfectly.
I would not hesitate to recommend Marina to anyone looking for a photographer that is easy to work with and takes beautiful photos.

Marina is a phenomenal photographer!
She shot our engagement photos last month and I can honestly say it was such a good time. I'm not one for having my photo taken often so I was a little nervous but immediately it felt right with her. She doesn't give you much direction unless you need it (she tells you before hand about her style and how she works). her calm demeanor and great sense of humor really comfort you as you have someone following you around trying to capture intimate moments.Sent on 06/19/2019
She's really easy to talk to and incredibly amazing with light.
I can't recommend her enough to people and would hire her over and over again.
