        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. Learn some more about who I am personally and let's see if we will be good fit. Feeling connected to you is an important aspect for me, so please share your story with me so I can envision your "Tales of Light".

   "We hired Tales of Light for our Engagement photos which was great for our save the dates:) and naturally, our Wedding Day! Mari was able to shoot the intimate moments of both wedding parties getting ready and also captured our ceremony. A lot of what I wanted we were able to organize ahead of time, but I also gave her creative freedom during the entire shoot. She takes BREATHTAKING black and white images too! I couldn’t contain the excitement when I got the gallery emailed back - in 3 weeks might I add - and amazed by the beauty of the images. I loved how she organized & labeled each session in the gallery so it was easy to access which photos I wanted.Such an amazing day and we have these moments to cherish for a lifetime! I highly recommend her. ✨"
