I'm Marquette

I am a Wedding and Portrait photographer based in Payson, AZ (where the Prickly Pear meets the Pine at the base of the Mogollon Rim). I am obsessed with anything orange, love unique florals, fully embrace my inner goofball, and can't get enough of the Southwest or Prickly Pear cacti!

dream come true

"When I started looking around for photographers I emailed a lot of photographers, probably close to 30. I had my friends emailing people, taking recommendations from anyone and everyone. I was searching for the best there was. Once I emailed Marquette, it was immediately obvious that this was the photographer I had to have. She was the only person who went above and beyond in my opinion. We talked back and forth for weeks before I finally booked her. She was asking about me, my fiancé, my family; just getting to know me before we even talked about the event. Everyone else would say 'these are my prices, this is my availability, etc.' From the beginning she was just extremely nice and inviting and throughout the process that never wavered. She makes you feel so comfortable. I honestly can't say enough good things about her. It was seriously a dream come true to have her shoot our engagements and our wedding."
