wedding & portrait photographer

Meet Marquette

Everyone needs a friend and a sidekick. That is what I am here for!  It is my job to make sure you have the tools and resources you need for an amazing wedding with beautiful photos and an even better marriage. It's my job to make sure Mom knows that her kids showing some added "spirit" during a photo shoot isn't a problem, and to relax and enjoy the process. It's my job to do all I can to make sure that a couple leaves their photo session more in love than when they got there. 

When you look at your photos, you don't just love them for how they look, you love them for how they make you feel, and people remember how they felt in the moment a photo was taken. It's like an instant time machine! That is why I am here to be YOUR sidekick. You are the hero of the story! I'm just here to help you tell it in a way that will strengthen your family, bring joy to your marriage, and give your kids something to smile and laugh about in 15 years when they are looking through the family albums.

tid bits about us

KETT & CAM:
Cameron and I were best friends before romance set in (funny tidbit: he friendzoned me!), and have been up to shenanigans as Mr & Mrs since 2006! 

DARROW, IONE, & MOLLY: 
These three little people of ours keep us running, laughing, and up at night. And we're completely and totally smitten. 

DINNER PARTIES & GAME NIGHTS: 
There's nothing like sitting at the table with friends and family, plates of good food in front of us, and knowing that an epic game of Hand and Foot or Steampunk Rally is on the horizon.

PRICKLY PEAR: 
With our own method of juicing the fruit, we've come to LOVE any and all things Prickly Pear! Jelly, syrup, soda, sorbet, smoothies, marinades, etc. It's the best!

ORANGE: 
I don't know why, but I LOVE orange. It grabs my eye anytime I see it. It's a slight obsession and it truly is the happiest color. 

EXPLORING WHERE WE LIVE: 
We are fascinated with exploring where we live. Local family owned restaurants. Mom and Pop shops. State and National Parks. Forest roads. Simple hikes. And if it has water to throw rocks in, it gets extra brownie points from the kids!

SOUTHWEST:
Growing up in New Mexico & Arizona, we have a deep love for the landscapes, cultures, foods, and people of the American Southwest. 

WILDERNESS MOWERS:
The name is a bit of an inside joke, but basically we love learning ways to be more resourceful, frugal, and digging into our small town/rural living roots! 

PHILOSOPHIES:
I firmly believe that life is what you make of it, that hard work trumps IQ or talent, that any day is a good day to dress up, that orange IS the happiest color, the bus ride is the best part of any field trip, and that someday pigs will fly!

She’s not only a great photographer,

Marquette is a dream to work with.

she takes great care of you

"She made me feel so comfortable behind the camera. She takes beautiful photos. At our wedding, we had cupcakes and they went really fast. Before they were all gone, Marquette brought us a plate of cupcakes so we were able to enjoy them too. She’s not only a great photographer, she takes great care of you! I highly recommend her!."
