Marina is THE BEST! My husband (fiancé at the time) found her on the Knot while researching photographers in the Cleveland area for a surprise proposal photoshoot, and since then Marina has been with us throughout our wedding journey. She is one of the most personable, welcoming people that I have ever met, and cares deeply about every picture that she takes. She does a great job understanding your preferences, and makes you feel like the center of the world in all of her shots. She also has a wide range of talent - the film photos she took at our wedding were also some of the most unique and beautiful photos that we had ever seen. We did 3 photoshoots with her - one for the proposal, one engagement, and finally our wedding, and we are confident that she will be our go-to photographer in the years to come!


Having worked with Marina on multiple occasions and also knowing her personally, it’s a delight to see how much she genuinely cares about her clients and wants them to have the best experience and memories possible. She makes sure you feel very comfortable in front of the camera and has a unique gift for capturing beautiful moments. She’s professional yet creates a fun environment as she’s working. I still obsess over my engagement photos and wedding photos daily and could not have asked for a better experience or outcome.

We absolutely loved Marina being our photographer for our wedding! I found out about Marina through friends and only heard wonderful things about her. I followed her on Instagram and went to her website and fell in love with all of her work! I especially loved how she gets all the tiny little details! We were very happy we chose her to capture all of our special moments on our wedding day and now we will have them forever. She was extremely helpful along the way and I was most impressed at how we immediately got a sneak peek of our pictures the very next day! She is an awesome person and photographer and we recommend her to anyone wanting to capture their special moments in their life!

Marina did photos for our engagement session and wedding, and let me just say WOW. She is so talented - her work is timeless, light, classic, and just objectively beautiful. Beyond that, she’s FAST. After both the engagement session and wedding, we received sneak peek photos within hours and every. single. photo. is incredible. And on top of her talent, she was so great to work with - it honestly felt like a friend that we’ve known for years was taking our photos. Truly can’t recommend Marina enough, you won’t regret it.

Marina has done both my engagement and now my wedding pictures and her work is impeccable and incredibly beautiful. Not to mention she is a dream to work with. It is more like working with a friend than a vendor. I have never looked more beautiful than in the pictures she has taken of me and she truly captured the wedding of my dreams and I haven't even seen all the pictures yet!

Marina is film wedding and portrait photographer that serves clients in the US and Europe. She lives Cleveland with her husband Scott and Bernese Mountain Dog Thatcher. She brings her penchant for all things pretty, deep love of familial history and eye for serendipitous moments into her photographs to create art pieces for her clients to cherish for years to come.
