I believe it is my job to make all my clients “photogenic!” My end goal for all my clients is a wonderful experience in front of my lens. With that goal in mind, all of my energy and creativity is spent to ensure you have fun and address any uncertainty you may have. When you are enjoying the moment it is so easy to capture you and your wonderful personality at its best. As far as removing all the uncertainty you might have about your portrait experience, I’ll cover posing, prepping your crew and when is the best time for those golden moments. Bottom line: You’re going to invest resources, therefore your time spent with me must be a pleasure and a treat.
in the word photogenic.

Marele is absolutely wonderful! Not only do my husband and I think she did a fantastic job, but all of our wedding guests said the same thing. You can tell she takes pride in her work and makes sure that everyone looks good in their pose so that the pictures will come out looking great. Marele listens to what pictures you want on your special day, but she also takes initiative on what to do because she has been doing this for a while, and knows what looks best. She also did our engagement pictures in SF which everyone loved, and also my bridal portraits that I cannot stop looking at. I highly, highly, highly recommend her for every and any event!

Marele has been photographing my daughter and family since 2011. She has captured the most intimate moments on camera, and if needed, edited them to perfection. From San Francisco, San Diego, to San Jose, I would recommend her for any event, occasion, or lifestyle shoot.
My family had a photo shoot at Alum Rock Park with Marele when she was still pregnant with her third child. With two kids, it was not easy since one kept running away, however, she was very patient and tried to capture the moment even when he was trying to go out of her angle. It was an amazing and pleasant experience with her and we'd like to do it again for sure!!
My family had a photo shoot at Alum Rock Park with Marele when she was still pregnant with her third child. Even with 6th month of pregnant, she was even more energetic than us!! With two kids, it was not easy since one kept running away, however, she was very patient and tried to capture the moment even when he was trying to go out of her angle. :) During the photo shoot, she never looked at her watch which means she didn't hurry us when we had to take some time off from time to time to feed the kids.
It was an amazing and pleasant experience with her and we'd like to do it again for sure!!

Marele was absolutely amazing!!! She went above and beyond to help capture the moment of mine and my new Fiancé's proposal. She was creative and made the photographs fun and made the moment was more special. I would absolutely recommend her and would use her photography skills again and again.
Marele is absolutely amazing! She made me feel so comfortable especially since i was so nervous. She gave me great directions during our sessions and it helped because my pictures look amazing. I can't say enough good things about her, i can't wait to work with her again!
