Studio M did our wedding photography, a lot of the pictures looked like they could be magazine covers. The most fun people to work with, and they take some very creative and gorgeous photos. I still can't believe that some of the pictures I have seen come from a real wedding let alone mine.
I cannot describe how happy I am with Marvin & Mary. On one of the most important days of my life, I had absolute faith in them to capture my wedding day, and they exceeded my expectations. It was so important to me and my husband to have skilled photographers, and if you feel the same way, I highly recommend Studio M. They captured every moment beautifully, and I didn't even know they were there.
I purposely did not go and read the other reviews for Marvin Hall’s photography. I am sure that all the reviews are proclaiming all the wonderful virtues of his work, and so I am just one more. However, I wanted to post and tell others who might be looking for a photographer that every penny they spend on choosing him would be well worth it – just look at his portfolio online!
Derek & Allison
Derek and I really enjoyed working with Marvin. A few months before our wedding we did our engagement pictures with Marvin. That served as a great way to get to know him-and we were so pleased with the pictures that it only made us more excited for our wedding. Marvin and his assistant were excellent at our wedding. I got lots of compliments from friends and family about how they were in not your face and intrusive like many wedding photographers can be. . .
Mark & Laura
Marv, nothing less than I expected. Laura and Mark shared wedding photos with us over Thai food shortly after leaving your appointment this past Saturday. Needless to say they were very good, or I would say exceptional. Both Laura and Mark were very pleased. . .
Kayte & Colin
Thanks again for your fabulous work at our wedding! You made the day perfect 🙂
Lindsey & Darrek
Marvin, we LOVE our Wedding Album you made for us! It looks phenomenal! WAY beyond our expectations! I have showed it to pretty much everyone in our church, I think they’re getting sick of me asking if they’ve seen it, haha. Thanks so much for all the hard work and making it look beautiful!
Chad & Lauren
Marvin, Coming from myself, Lauren, and my family, we would like to thank you so much for the incredible photography you have provided us with. We could not be more pleased with every single aspect of our experience with you. You were very easy to work with, communicated with us regularly, and captured amazing photos! We are soooo glad that we decided to go with the higher of the two packages we were contemplating. . .
David & Lindsey Williams
Ohhh my gosh Marvin….are we ever pleased!!! The wedding album is absolutely beautiful and gorgeous and amazing and everything else good! You are seriously the best, we were so blessed to have you as a photographer, thanks so much for the book!!
Congratulations on your engagement! Words probably cannot describe the joy and happiness that you must feel right now. It is Marvin’s belief that every moment of joy and happiness should be captured through beautiful photographs. You definitely want to remember every happy moment you spend with your partner. From the moment of your engagement to the many years you’ll spend together as a married couple.
This is what Marvin has helped many couples achieve over the years. With over 30 years as a professional photographer, he has been able to help many couples capture this emotional and romantic moment.
Here’s how he does it.
It is no news that every couple is different. You and your partner might laugh a lot. You may or may not be comfortable with kissing in public or showing other public display of affection. Your relationship with your partner and how you interact with each other is unique to both of you and only you!
This is why Marvin believes pre-consultation is a very important step toward having a great engagement photo shoot. This is the time when he asks questions like, “How did you meet? What do both of you do for a living? How often do you show public display of affection to your partner?” These questions would help him deduce what location and kinds of poses will best suit your personalities.
Time & Location
Speaking of location, a photograph is only as good as the location where it was taken. It is always great when couples have special places where they want to have their photoshoot. It makes couples feel extremely comfortable, projecting nothing but natural laughter, happiness and joy.
SIf you don’t have a place in mind yet, there is no need to worry, your engagement photographs will be amazing. Marvin is great at picking beautiful places that can only bring out the most romantic and happy emotions in you and your partner.
And speaking of time, your engagement session will take place whenever it is most comfortable for you and your partner. However, one of the best times to have an engagement session is 2 – 3 hours before sunset. Marvin will take advantage of the glorious golden light of our precious sun to capture your intimacy as you both stare into each other’s eyes. It also makes those moments where you smile at a joke you share even more beautiful.
