"timeless, poetic & inspired by nature"




Serving Worldwide destinations


             My name is Mari:)  I am the photographer behind Tales of Light Photography. One of the reasons I specialize in wedding & elopement photography is because it is "pure emotion". It's a true pleasure for me to find the poetry in the human experience. My photographs are full of love, character and imperfect, much like people are. I do my best to work unobtrusively and flow with your day. This is necessary to capture authentic connections and subtle moments. It’s important for me to keep things simple, natural and real. Most likely you have been searching through a sea of photographers, but I see myself as more than a photographer. I'm a friend and I am here for you:)  Here to make your vision come to life. Here to help you explore new and exciting landscapes. Here to create an heirloom you can pass down to your loved ones. Please share your story with me so I can envision your "Tales of Light".
