I believe weddings should be fun and taking photos should never feel like a chore. My approach is to provide direction through posing to create photos that you love. There is nothing worse than a stiff looking, awkward portrait. On your wedding day I’ll use my artistic vision to capture your story in a way that is unique to you. I’ll document all the important moments you won’t want to forget, as well as things behind the scenes and the small moments that make it all so special.

Ann Marie is the best. She has an incredible talent of highlighting the happiness, color, and vibrancy of whatever ever she photographs. My husband and I were a bit anxious about getting our photos taken, but she made us feel so comfortable right away. Ann Marie is hilarious, kind, and makes you feel taken care of right away. Also- the photographs are just out of control beautiful. Her framing and styling is cinematography level incredible. We love Ann Marie and will be coming back to her photographer any major life moments in the future.

Ann Marie was absolutely amazing. I was nervous about having photos taken, but during our engagement shoot, Ann Marie made us feel so comfortable and relaxed, we actually had a blast! Our wedding was exactly the same. The day was so calm and Ann Marie made our whole bridal party comfortable. We have since received our album and Ann Marie's work tells a beautiful story of our day. We will treasure our photos always! I would refer Ann Marie to anyone. We are so grateful to have worked with her and we even miss her now!

Ann Marie as our photographer was truly a highlight of our wedding day. After two years and three COVID reschedules, she stuck with us through it all, was flexible to all our needs, and brought joy and excitement to the big day. We met with her in person before even booking her which we really appreciated and had fun getting to know her and her style. It was a perfect match for us from the start- her creativity, relaxed personality, and attention to detail was obvious from our first meeting. She has a detailed survey that helps shape the day of timeline. It covered every detail and took all stress off of us for the big day. We thoroughly enjoyed our wedding day- the day of photos were so natural and fun! Nothing was forced and she was there to have a good time with us. By the end of the day she felt like family! She is very communicative and so easy to work with. Our friends and family still talk about how great she was getting all the shots- she was truly a rockstar all day! Without a doubt we would recommend Ann Marie to anyone looking for a photographer!

My handsome husband is not the most comfortable in from of the camera, but Ann Marie has a compatible sense of humor and was able to get him to relax. Every photo she captured of him (and us) is great and everyone is so amazed with our photos."

Working with Ann Marie was nothing short of a dream! After researching and speaking with several photographers, I was fortunate enough to find Ann Marie and within just a few moments of meeting her I knew she was the perfect fit. She captures the emotion behind each image, and just one peek at your wedding photos will evoke all those same feelings, easily reliving the best day of your life over and over. All those sweet moments with my now husband that I may have otherwise forgotten, photographed so perfectly that we're instantly taken back. We are incredibly thankful to have had Ann Marie with us throughout the wedding planning process and we enthusiastically recommend her.

LOVEEEEE HER! Ann Marie is absolutely the best. My husband and I are both very shy in front of the camera, but she did an amazing job making us feel comfortable. She's a great communicator and an even better photographer. Our engagement and wedding photos came out beautifully!
KARA + MATT // GARRISON, ny
Ann Marie was such a creative, talented, and fun photographer to work with! We got married at The Garrison, which is located in New York state and has such incredible views and beautiful grounds. Ann Marie knew just where to photograph us and the pictures are breath-taking. She was able to capture every single emotion of the day! Her artistic sensibility makes her to stand out from other photographers. Besides being an amazing photographer, she is a down-to-earth and awesome person and it was a pleasure to spend the day with her. I would recommend Ann Marie to anyone and will be using her for my future photography needs!
