Quantcast

It was almost a year ago when I sent my first message to Marirosa asking if she would be able to shoot a "surprise" proposal at the end of June. I had no idea what i was getting into nor did I know how nerve-racking the day was going to be, but Marirosa assured me that everything would be perfect. Given that I was planning this remotely, I didn't believe her. She worked with me to mark up Google Maps image and select the precise location that I would pop the question to the love of my life.Crazy, right? A photographer that actually helped pick the perfect location and calmed my nerves every time I called with a different question. Marirosa is incredible and went over and beyond all of my expectations. That may be expected, but she was also a blast to work with which made the shoot that much more fun. Her photos speak for themselves, but if you need me to say it to believe what you see then let me tell you, she's pretty damn good at what she does. I can't wait to find a reason to work with her again!

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

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.

I can not recommend Marirosa enough. She is professional, insightful, helpful, responsive, and most of all, kind and fun. After our initial meeting I knew without a doubt she was who I wanted to document our wedding day, and I was certainly not disappointed. On the day of our wedding she was there every step of the way and captured wonderful photos that my husband and I will treasure for the rest of our lives. She works fast too - we had a "sneak peak" of multiple images the day after our wedding, a full blog post and slideshow within 3 days, and our ENTIRE gallery of hundreds of photos within 10 days! She is a true gem and I would without hesitation recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding photographer!

I wondered how could anyone capture and express through photography the most important day in my daughter’s life? Mariposa definitely filled that role! Her photos allowed us all to relive that precious day with tears in our eyes and joy in our hearts as we looked through the multitude of photos taken on the day of the wedding. She has a gifted eye for composition and I loved her take charge attitude. Her humor was infectious and her pleasant ,friendly demeanor shows that she loves her job! View her sample photos and you can see & feel her caring spirit show through with her attention to detail and arrangements. I wanted the best professional and I found the best professional in Mariposa!
