"A picture is worth a thousand words..."
— Frederick R. Barnard
Best decision you can make to capture special moments! She made sure to listen and help incorporate our ideas. Mar is knowledgeable of great places to take photographs and provided great suggestions. While taking pictures she made us feel comfortable and was great at taking candid pictures. Because of her great personality, honesty, and great work ethic I will definitely seek her services everytime!
Mar has been taking my maternity and family pictures since my second pregnancy and I’m so happy I found her. The editing and quality of the pictures are perfect. She has been able to see my family grow and she has been a part of it with the amazing pictures she takes. She is always so upbeat and makes my family feel comfortable. Thank you for the great memories/pictures.
"I'M SO HAPPY I FOUND HER"
Mar is by far the best photographer I have hired. I hired her to take my entire family pictures as a gift to my parents. Which was a group of about 15 people.. which she had a lot of patience & professionalism to deal with us and all our inputs.😂 My family loved her as well.
Mar has been through my life milestones capturing unbelievable natural pictures. From my engagement pictures to my 1st & 2nd child family pictures. And has never disappointed. She is the best! Mar makes you feel comfortable and her warm spirit shines through her &her camera lense 🙂
And as a matter a fact I need to reach out to her now to book her for my next event!!
"SHE IS THE BEST!"
Marta is an amazing photographer and human being. She truly is one of the best and it shows through her work. She makes you feel comfortable and relaxed. The sessions are always fun and full of laughs. She worked very well with my 2 year old and was able to get the most amazing shots of my family. She is a very talented photographer and I highly recommend her to anyone else looking for a maternity or family photographer.
"ALWAYS FUN AND FULL OF LAUGHS!"
I had my engagement and maternity photos done with Marta and both time were a great experience. I am an awkward person when it comes to taking pictures but she was good at telling us how to stand, where to look and posing in a way that looked very natural in the photos. She also pays close attention to detail and her photo delivery is an easy download. Besides her excellent work, she is very professional and fun to work with! I would highly recommend her work, you won’t be disappointed!
"YOU WON'T BE DISAPOINTED!"
There aren't enough words to describe how amazing Mar is as a photographer. She is as professional as she is friendly. She took our family photos and she made us laugh helping to make everyone comfortable. One of the things l love about her is how she thinks about and sees every little detail to capture the moment.
I highly recommend her!
"THERE AREN'T ENOUGH WORDS..."
Mar Alvarado's photos are simply beautiful. I had my engagement, maternity and Christmas photos done with her. She is a sweet and professional person. She always gives you her honest opinion on great photo positions/angles, which I appreciated. She's great with kids, dogs AND awkward husbands; who don't like taking pictures! :) Take a look at her amazing work on IG and book her. @mar_photoswithlove
Guiding, directing, and posing couples is my strong point and something I am very passionate about. After 8 years of photographing many couples, I've learned several different poses to guide couples through. And although I like those posed images, I also love those fun, candid images of couples being themselves and just having fun. I'll also give couples prompts and direction as to how to achieve these candid and fun images.
