LOVE FROM OUR CLIENTS 🙂
Shannon and Walt ~ “I can’t recommend Marnie highly enough to ANYONE looking for a photographer!!!
First of all, she is incredibly talented at photography!! I knew her photos were great from looking at her portfolio on her website, but my wedding photos came out looking like a photospread out of a magazine! I was totally blown away! I had friends and family who took their own pictures at my wedding, and those came out ok, but then I got Marnie’s photos and they were just on a COMPLETELY different level! The way she uses lighting, the angles she finds, the posing techniques she uses… it’s unreal. In her photos I look like a model!
One of the things that most impressed me was when she was taking pictures at my house when we were getting ready… Let me just tell you, my house is a disaster. We are in the process of doing renovations, there are building materials strewn all over, and I didn’t expect to get really any decent photos there due to the state it’s in. But I swear she works miracles! She found all these places that I would have NEVER thought of to take pictures of my dress, my shoes, my accessories, and me – that totally hide all of the chaos surrounding them! And she used all these tricks with lighting and making the background out of focus to hide the not so sightly areas… I was totally amazed!
Second, Marnie and her assistant (her daughter Ivy) are professionals through and through. Marnie was the most reliable and prompt at answering my emails of any vendor I dealt with in the entire wedding planning process. She is very flexible about customizing her photography packages to meet your needs. She is very detail-oriented, and asks you all kinds of questions in advance to make sure everything goes the way you want it to. She was so flexible with start and end times, going to multiple locations, and basically anything we wanted she was able to accommodate.
Finally, she has such a nice personality and is so easy to get along with. I am a somewhat shy person, and I am very uncomfortable being in the spotlight and having to pose for people. From the very first time we met, her calm demeanor just put me at ease. Based on my personal preferences she used more of a photojournalistic style, and you barely knew she was there! I was able to laugh, be myself, and not feel like I was being scrutinized whatsoever.
Marnie gives you such an incredible value for the prices she charges, I am still astounded that I was able to hire someone like her with my limited budget. In my opinion she’s right up there with the best wedding photographers in Pittsburgh. No matter whether you have a small budget or whether money is no object, you should DEFINITELY at the very least just meet with Marnie and look at her work. You will not be disappointed!!!”
Katie and Connor ~ “Marnie did a really nice job photographing our wedding. My husband and I both felt really comfortable with her and she’s very easy to get along with – which is really important because you spend a lot of time with the photographer. In fact, one of the bridesmaids liked her so much that she hired her to do her own engagement photos and wedding not long after ours. Marnie and her assistant went out of their way to do whatever extra stuff we needed – like offering to photograph the rehearsal, going over to the church to get my veil while I was getting dressed the day of the wedding, lots of little things like that that make a big difference. They also went out of their way to accommodate all our wishes for the photos themselves. Marnie also made our wedding album. We had a lot of options in terms of how we wanted it to look, and it turned out beautifully. We have already recommended her to friends and not only that, she would be our first choice to do baby photos when the time comes! Thanks so much for taking such good care of us, Marnie!” ~ Katie and Connor
Rachel and Matt ~ “Marnie and Ivy were both beyond fantastic. From our very first meeting to the engagement session to wedding and after, everything went so smoothly! It was really great to know the wedding photography was something I didn’t have to stress about leading up to the wedding. The pictures they captured were amazing, and they deserve even more praise for handling my extremely large wedding party and all the small children involved! I highly recommend using Moments & Milestones for your photography needs. I have a feeling we will be contacting Marnie in the future when our family begins expanding :)”
Ginger and Joe ~ “We knew from the first meeting with Marnie that she was the perfect choice for a photographer. Her work speaks for itself, but on top of that she is one of the most kind and genuine people I have met. I have received amazing feedback and so many compliments on every photo from the engagement session to the impromptu pictures at the rehearsal to the wedding.
Marnie and Ivy went above and beyond anything we could have ever expected. Marnie was easy to work with, flexible, great value, provided a quality product, prompt turnaround, and was incredibly creative. She was always open to any ideas that I had and there was always so much thought and intention behind everything she did. The slideshow preview at the reception wowed my guests and was a great touch. The digital brag book was an awesome way that I could share my photos. I could go on and on about all of the wonderful things. Bottom line, I would recommend Moments and Milestones to anyone. Thank you for capturing such wonderful memories that we will cherish forever!”
Liz and John ~ “Marnie did our engagement pictures a few weeks ago, and after looking at them, I absolutely can’t WAIT to see how amazing our wedding photos turn out!!!
Marnie is so nice and easy to work with. My fiancé and I are both somewhat shy, but she made us feel so at ease during the engagement session. I know she will be a lot of fun on the wedding day, and she’ll put everyone at ease so that we get some great pictures.
Marnie does an awesome job at capturing the emotions of the moment. I noticed that in her photos in her portfolio online, and I was even more amazed when I saw it in my own pictures.
Definitely check out Moments and Milestones Photography– you will not regret it!”
Caitlin and Jeremy ~ “Marnie was an absolute blessing. She has kept me calm and collective the whole time, before and after our wedding. She honestly captured the magical moments that will always be looked at.”
Amy and Neil ~ “Marnie is perfect! She was so patient during the planning and the day of the wedding. We have absolutely stunning pictures that I have gotten tons of compliments on. She even showed some during the reception, which people loved!”
Tara and Ryan ~ “I can’t say enough about Marnie! She is an excellent photographer and our pics were gorgeous! She even saved the day by driving me and 2 of my bridesmaids to the church when our limo got a flat on the way! Our album turned out beautifully!”
Ali and Jon ~ “Marnie did an amazing job on our wedding pictures. She is affordable but has excellent quality of work. She captured all of the moments we wanted to remember forever and was creative and original. We are very pleased that we decided to pick Marnie as our wedding photographer. It is a day you will never forget so you should have photos that are just as beautiful.”
Summer and Rohan ~ “I can’t say enough about Marnie! She was an absolute joy to work with, for both my engagement photos and my wedding photos. Our photos turned out beautifully, and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer. :)”
Karen and Scott ~ “Marnie did the pictures for our wedding and we couldn’t have been happier. She was helpful, sweet and had great idea’s. She worked with us to get great shots, and made sure that we were happy and satisfied with everything from the beginning to the end. I got everything that I wanted and was so happy with how everything turned out! These pictures are priceless to me and I would highly recommend Marnie!!”
Allie and Jeff ~ “My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Marnie this past May. We were engaged in October of 2010. I knew Marnie, because she had photographed my sister’s wedding. After I met Marnie, watched her photograph my sister’s wedding and seeing the finished product; I knew I had to work with her too! We had planned on shooting our engagement photos in November and April. Due to weather, we had to cancel our shoot 3 times! Marnie knew how important these photos were to me and my husband, and how I wanted her to capture us. Each morning upon cancellation, she knew I was disappointed, but who can control the weather? She was very reassuring that they would happen on the perfect day. Then, in May of 2011, we were scheduled and we thought the weather would ruin our shoot for the 4th time. However, after some gray clouds, they cleared away and we had the most beautiful day! Marnie is so easy to talk to and makes you feel at ease. I would recommend Moments and Milestones Photography to anyone who wants their special moments captured perfectly. Marnie truly has an amazing gift and is a wonderful person to work with.”
Jenn and Paul ~ “Marnie photographed my friend’s wedding and when I saw the pictures and quality of her work, I knew I wanted her to photograph my wedding as well.
My wedding is still a few months away, but we had a great engagement photo session with Marnie. She has an upbeat, positive attitude and helped to put me and my fiance at ease during the shoot. The pictures turned out so beautiful and helped capture the memories of being engaged. I used one of the photos for our save the date magnets and it turned out amazing.
We’re looking forward to having her photograph our wedding. I would recommend Marnie to anyone. She is talented, professional, affordable and you can tell that she really loves what she does.”
Angela and Jon ~ “I had the pleasure of working with Marnie for my wedding which was a great experience! She was extremely helpful and had a lot of great ideas. I really appreciated that she took time to meet with me prior to my wedding to meet at our venue and talk about picture ideas together. Marnie is very affordable and was able to give us great quality pictures to remember our day! I would definitely recommend her!”
Rachael and Joe ~ “Marnie is an amazing photographer, she is not only very talented at what she does but is also a very caring, patient, loving person… She truly has a gift when it comes to photography and has done many portrait sessions for my family including our wedding and Christmas photos… Each session with her has been such a pleasurable, fun experience and I highly recommend her!! I was amazed at the outcome of our many portraits and truly cherish them…”
Kari and Dave ~ “My husband and I got married in October of 2010 and we had the luck of Marnie being free to photograph our wedding. The package was extremely affordable and Marnie was so helpful. She helped answer every question we had and accommodated all of our wishes. The photographs turned out absolutely gorgeous and each time I look at them I can remember that exact moment of the day (which she took over 600 pictures I think!). I will definitely recommend Moments and Milestones to all of my friends getting married!”
Danielle and Mark ~ “Marnie, does amazing work. She is very creative, flexible and affordable. I am so glad we chose her to be our photographer for our wedding.”
