Marirosa was truly a pleasure to work with! She has a bubbly personality that will put any nervous brides and grooms immedietely at ease! From the moment we met, I just knew we would get along! She also has a unique artistic flair, and truly captured the essence of my October "Marie Antoinette" themed wedding. Thanks to her, I now have timeless, gorgeous photos that I can look back on and re-live all the little moments that can get forgotten in the rush of the whole wedding experience. As far as her pricing, you cannot get a better value int he DMV area. In addition to a complimentary engagement shoot, she also adds personal little touches that make you feel special from the moment you book! From cute bridal themed chocolates and tote bags to pretty fabric wrappings, she makes the entire photography experience wonderful. I highly, highly recommend!!!

About

I believe real life is worth documenting and celebrating. Time moves faster than ever, few things ever slow us down allowing us to relive a moment like the power of a photograph.
Once all the dust has settled from your wedding day, the gifts are opened, the dress is tucked away in a closet, when everyday life returns, it's the photographs and images that allow you to be in that moment again, to remember the raw emotion, and relive it over and over, the smiles, laughter, love...

I believe I am real, that I bring all of myself into my images, I make a commitment to all the couples I work with to be part of their day, to have fun and to provide them with amazing imagery to remember those moments. It is an honor to photograph a wedding, to document the start of a new chapter in your story.

I am a mom, wife, friend, sister, daughter... I am a photographer, a storyteller, a lover of light, people, relationships and moments. I wear my heart on my sleeve. I believe in photographing real life, I am me, and I am a documentary wedding photographer.


Marirosa is fluent in both English and Spanish

I don’t even know where to start to properly describe how wonderful it was working with Marirosa as our wedding photographer for our March 2018 wedding. Booking her was one of the first decisions my husband and I made in our wedding planning, and it was absolutely one of the best. Marirosa was (is, actually) a DREAM to work with. Her photo galleries speak for themselves – you can see just by looking through them how wonderful her photography is. The best part was getting to know her and learning that she’s as amazing as her work. From our first email exchange to our first in person meeting to our engagement session to the day of the wedding, every aspect of working with Marirosa was easy. On the day of the wedding, Marirosa and her second photographer, Rachel, did more than take beautiful photos. They helped make the day fun and easy. They were everything from stylists to timekeepers to therapists to everything in between. I can’t imagine our wedding day without them. And the photos … sigh. My husband and I couldn’t be happier with the results. And she is SPEEDY! We had sneak peeks of beautiful photos the day after the wedding, and the whole lot shortly afterward. I highly recommend Marirosa – I can’t imagine anyone else documenting our most important moments.

I cannot say enough nice things about Marirosa! She's so warm, funny, and easy to work with and her photos are absolutely stunning. My wedding day was a crazy day with so many unknown details but Marirosa provided so much support and structure to keep me sane - I cannot imagine what my wedding day would have been like without her. I received my gorgeous pictures shortly after the wedding and I can't stop looking at them. I never thought I'd spend much time or money on wedding photography but I'm so glad I did. She was worth every penny!

WOW. Where do I begin with Marirosa?! She was amazing from the second I reached out to her. I found her through WeddingWire and all the glowing reviews everyone else left. We met in her studio office and chatted about our plans and our wedding for a near 2 hours. We knew she was "the photographer" for us just from the connection we instantly had with her, but what sealed the deal for my husband and I was how willing she was to hit up Taco Bell after our wedding -- it was a BIG deal to us.

Leading up to the big day, Marirosa was phenomenal. I'm a HUGE communicator and her communication with us was on point! She never left an email unanswered and answered questions with lightening speed! Then came our wedding day and Marirosa and Mindy captured some amazing moments for us. They are both so great to talk to and work with, and definitely put wedding jitters at ease. My husband and I absolutely LOVE our pictures and will forever remember the best day of our lives so vividly because of the great work Marirosa does. We love her to pieces and are looking forward to staying in her PBM family as our lives continue and our family (hopefully) grows in the future.
