Weddings & Couples Sessions

With over 80 weddings in my experience, and after working with over 100 different couples, I've learned that what couples need most is not someone to have to figure out what to do with. They need a friend and sidekick. 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. 

Every invitation to capture someone's love story is something I never take lightly.  It is so important to me that I am able to connect with each couple I serve so that I am able to tell their story well. Only if I feel like I will be the best fit to tell your story will I agree to be the one there to capture your wedding day. Because I honestly don't think you deserve anything less.

Full Wedding

With the complimentary engagement session to help us get to know each other (and which is a huge help to getting amazing shots on your wedding day), the Full Experience is the way tot go for couples who want it all!! My Second Shooter and I work as a team to catch the moments you want preserved and the moments you aren't able to experience first hand like the antics of the flower girl walking down the aisle, the laughter of your sweetheart as they work through pre-ceremony excitement with their best friends, and the look on your Mom's face as she watches you share your first dance as Husband and Wife.

temple WEDDINGS

Temple Weddings

My first many weddings I photographed were Temple Weddings! I have shot at weddings all over the southwest (but have a particular bias for the Albuquerque, NM Temple where we were married). I used to have a specific Temple Wedding package, but quickly found that most couples needed to alter the package in various ways, so I now offer a "build your own package" method of finding the perfect coverage for your day. If you aren't sure what you want covered yet, we can chat and I can help you figure out what you want to include and which parts may not be as important to you when it comes to the photography. 

- Timeline creation assistance to maximize your day without leaving you and your family exhausted at the end (I've seen too many couples burn out by the end of the day!)
- Around 50 images delivered for every hour of shooting
- Online viewing gallery with download and print rights

On average, couples spend around $800 on Temple packages. every Temple Wedding quote is custom built. Shoot me a message to build your quote!

These can be paired with any wedding experience or booked as an experience all their own!

Extras & Add-Ons

Want to customize the experience? No problem! 
+ Additional Photographer: $50/hour
An additional photographer means I can cover more events of the day at a time, provide more angles (for example during the ceremony we can get more guest reactions as well as the ceremony events), and drastically increase the number of portraits I am able to deliver.

$300/hour booked ahead of time
$400/hour for time extended in the moment on the wedding day
+ Custom Retouching: $25/image
 I do light & color adjustments on every image I deliver, as well as some basic acne blending (because sometimes that one wedding zit just insists on making an appearance, we get that).
For extensive editing I charge on a per image basis.

"Marquette just lets the shoot roll. It’s not a million different poses and a million different instructions to try to follow it’s just you and her, cracking jokes and getting amazing shots. She helps you with the planning process and making sure you get the most out of your shoot! Marquette has worked really hard to build up her talent and she is an awesome photographer! 10/10 would recommend!"

"working with marquette 

Matt and Josie
-gila valley, arizona engagement session and temple wedding-

is so different from any other photographer."

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 cant thank you enough for all you did."

When we first spoke with Marquette she was totally excited and easy to talk to. This same energy went in to our engagement session and reflected in our photos. We are awkward at times when taking photos but she made us feel comfortable the entire session. The day of the wedding she was fantastic! She somehow captured all of the amazingly special moments during the event! She is also incredibly talented and stepped in to help the bridesmaids while they were getting ready whenever it was needed. The photos turned out way better than we could ever have hoped! Huge thank you to Marquette and her assistant, Claire, for recording the memory of our day!

You would be absolutely crazy if you don't pick her. She is the most caring and professional photographer out there. Not only does she take the stress away, she captures moments you will cherish forever. All her pictures are truly amazing. She is seriously the best in the business! Her passion for taking pictures is truly amazing. She captured so many perfect moments during our wedding. (Everyone is still talking about how amazing the pictures are from our wedding) She even went out of her way to capture the perfect shots of us in front of the snowy mountain.

we have gained

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."

Dallin and Mikaela
-Payson, AZ Sweetheart session-

She is so easy to work with and is so understanding and incrediblly personable! I love the fact that she too is a mom and was not afraid to pick up my son and hold him while still taking pictures. The quality of pictures didn’t change either when she was holding him, all pictures are equally as beautiful and amazing! Something Preston and I will treasure for many years to come!  I LOVE all my pictures and I couldn’t be happier!

"Marquette was

the best money I spent towards my wedding

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"

Stephanie & Nathan
-Arizona snowbowl engagement session-

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

We wanted to thank Marquette for the hard work, time, and effortless fun we have experienced taking photos with her. 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

You got me to do something I wasn't comfortable with (dipping) but you made me feel like I could do it. Now, those pictures are some of my favorite. You bent over backwards for us and you traveled all over the place to help us have a... well,  magical experience!

to help us have a magical experience!"

One fun bonus to my job is the chance to meet, interact, and work with other professionals and creatives in the wedding industry. They all bring so much into every wedding! With every wedding I shoot I love providing the vendors and creatives involved with photos of their hard work. Working alongside so many talented men and women has opened doors, planted seeds of friendship, and it's just so much fun!

kind words from wedding industry creatives and professionals

She loves what she does and it shows in every bit of her work! She took time and great detail into every picture she took. I love her pictures! Hands down I recommend Marquette. I share her name and website all the time. I have sung her praises since I met her. I would highly recommend Marquette for any photography project! Not only is she so fun to work with but her love for photography shows in her finished product!

I could tell she was in her element."

I was so excited to get the opportunity to work with Marquette because I followed her on Instagram and already knew I loved her style. I felt like we were already good friends when we met in person because of how personable she was. I loved that she was one of the few photographers that got 'behind the scenes' shots of setting up the event. It really was a blast working with her and I would love to do it again and again!


already good friends"

I knew how dark that building was, I tried and tried to get a decent photo of the cake set up, but I'm a baker, not a photographer. You made it look like it was in the middle of the most beautiful sunny day! I am so excited to get to work on more events with you!"

It was such a pleasure to work with you! Of all the weddings held at our barn, you are the only one who has ever sent photos to us. I was telling someone about you describing how I had just worked with the most amazing photographer and just from my description they said, were you working with Marquette? And I was like YES!!! And we continued to gush over you! You were so kind and positive! I just loved to step back and watch you work because I was so impressed the whole time!

Marquette blew me away with the edited images of our styled shoot. I was very happy with the décor and set up we did but she turned our décor into true art with her photography skills. It was amazing. I am a shy person and that is something I struggle with being in this industry. Marquette made me feel very comfortable and was extremely easy to work with. I had a great experience with Marquette and look forward to working with her again in the future!
