Gila Valley Couples

In 15+ years of photographing weddings and couples I've learned that what people need most is not someone to have to figure out what to do with. They need someone who treats them like family. They need someone there to buoy them up, take the stress off, have resources on hand to simplify matters, and to preserve these incredibly special split moment memories. 

The Gila Valley is where my photography business journey started, where I shot some of my first weddings, and where we've come back to over and over through the years. In 2022 we made the Gila Valley our home and we're loving getting to serve local couples and businesses here in person!

I love taking pictures with Marquette! She was our wedding photographer and we get our anniversary photos done by her every year. Not only do we get gorgeous photos but we get to feel like models. Some how even when we shoot off our goofy grins and jazz hands the pictures turns out great!! She captures our personality in every shot! It is wonderful! Once we get to the picture location all my worries melt away! We get to just hang out with a friend who happens to be holding a camera! Its the best!

melt away!"

What I love most about Marquette LaRee Photography is when I look at the pictures I don’t remember all the difficult things that were going on in my life during different phases. I just remember that wonderful day. How much fun we had, how calm and confident I felt. I felt like she was my friend and she was taking care of us and just wanted us to be our true genuine selves. Those memories are priceless!  We have always LOVED the pictures she has taken, and the whole experience is easy going, and she is so nice to work with. We are so so so happy with our pictures and we really appreciate you Marquette! Thank you!! Love, The Goutchers

-10+ years of Engagements, Wedding, and anniversary sessions-

Marquette is just the best! She's done a couple shoots for us, and she does a great job of getting shots that really show our personalities. She is a master at posing/directing her subjects to get images that look and feel beautiful and REAL. She also did a great job of making it a fun experience overall! We did a sweetheart session that honestly just felt like a fun date. We loved her and the images she gave us that now hang on our walls!

a fun date!"

Marquette is really easy going. She comes prepared with ideas and a creative mind. We met with her beforehand to get to know each other and I knew from when we met that we were going to have a fun time. She grabbed us right at the end of our reception and said she had this great idea. We went along with it and she took this gorgeous backlit shot in front of the barn. Aidan and I love it so much and have that photo hanging in our house. Marquette is fantastic with her camera! Our pictures are a dream come true. I loved the timeless feel of them-- no trendy filters or strange poses.

"I have never felt more

Marquette was AWESOME! She really knows what she's doing and that inspires a lot of confidence! She made us feel good about ourselves, and helped us feel confident! We were very at ease and comfortable during the shoot! She was prepared with a blanket for the cold and wet grass, she had an umbrella in case of undesired weather changes, she thought of everything! If you're looking for a photographer who is fun, easy to work with, professional, and talented, Marquette is your girl!

feel good about ourselves."

"she made us

-Arizona snowbowl engagement session-

Not only does she take the stress away, she captures moments you will cherish forever. She captured so many perfect moments during our wedding. She even went out of her way to capture the perfect shots of us in front of the snowy mountain. She saw the sun peak through the mountain on the way to our reception and called us to meet her there. Those shots are breathtaking and shows you how much she truly cares and wants your day to be magical. Not only did we have the privilege of having the best photographer we feel like we have gained a lifelong friend in the process. We were so blessed to have her as our photographer. We love you and can't thank you enough for all you did."

Marquette is AHmazing! Professional, artistic and SO MUCH FUN! Our 10 year sweetheart session with her brought my husband and I so much closer together. We're still smiling days later! We will be using her again for sure!
