Marge photographed our San Francisco City Hall wedding when on short
notice we decided to elope from the East Coast in January. From the
first contact to delivering the finished photos, she was delightful to
work with. Besides her calm professionalism in the midst of chaos, and
her eye for detail, I love that she has a great sense of humor and
captured our playful personalities. And she is efficient! She really
knows San Francisco City Hall and the vicinity, and where to get the
most beautiful, flattering shots of couples in a short time frame.
you from the bottom of our hearts, Marge! We and our families are
thrilled with the photos. I know I am going to treasure looking through
them in the years to come, reliving the moments, and I am so glad we
chose you to document our wedding! Rock on, girl!

Oh my goodness! I can't begin to
tell you how in love I am with the photos!!! It was so emotional looking
through them and it brought the day right back to us. We want to thank
you for all of your time and hard work. To say that you go the extra
mile would be an understatement. You're such an artist and it was a pleasure to have you
photograph our wedding. Your blog is simply darling and we had
so much fun looking over the story. Thank you again
for being part of it! You're the best Marge! Wishing you a beautiful 2012!

Marge, you did such a great job! How’d you know my favorite band was The Cure?! Lol. It was a perfect fit for our video. :) We
both feel lucky and blessed that we stumbled upon your ad and that you
were able to shoot the wedding. You were a perfect fit. Thank
you for taking such care and attention to the details. You captured the
moments just beautifully and your blog was outstanding. Exceeded our expectations! Thank you for all the kind words and fantastic photos.

offers a terrific value and great service. She was on time,
professional and worked well with our family and friends. I was
impressed with her responsiveness and how she goes the extra mile to
create slideshows, photo books and online albums - much more than you'd
expect, especially for the price. I'd definitely recommend her to

She was fantastic! We were organizing our City Hall wedding from
England and so needed to feel we could trust the photographer to do a
good job based on her online portfolio. Neither of us enjoy having our
picture taken and so I wanted the more photojournalistic shots.
Marge seemed to fit the bill perfectly and at such a good rate compared to other photographers I had seen, too good to be true!
She was great with communication and any questions or requests I had, she responded quickly to.
On the day itself, I was very nervous! Marge texted me early on to let me know that she was on her way offering reassuring words and letting us know where to meet her. Straight away she got to work, there were a lot of
posed/semi natural ones, they turned out really nicely.
It was all very
surreal and the comedy of it all (to us) settled our nerves and made the
time waiting for our slot much more bearable. Afterwards, she posted the discs to us which arrived shortly after
we got home and then again wrote to us to assure us that the photo book
was on it's way which I thought was very thoughtful.
Overall, I would not hesitate to book Marge again. We have lots of beautiful pictures to remember our day.
Thank you Marge!

I got married at SF City Hall, and Marge advertises for this on her
site. I didn't want to spend a lot of money, and only had a small amount
budgeted for photos. Her prices are right and she contacts you
immediately once you've contacted her.
Marge puts a lot of effort into her work and she is very organized
and precise about details that you wouldn't even think about, such as an
itinerary that you may need for your ceremony. Marge wrote up a precise
itinerary for me for all I would need that day and emailed it to me -- so
I wouldn't forget anything!
She doesn't waste any time getting down to business and she is
thorough and she sent the pictures to me right away. She is honest too. I
only wanted an hours worth of pics and she didn't give me the full hour
and wanted to deduct some of her fee, but my husband and I insisted
that she take the full amount for all of her hard-working efforts.
Her pictures tell a story of your event. Her pictures flow and
aren't stuffy studio pictures. She did a good job and I'm very happy I
found her on Craigslist where she advertises. Now I have some lovely
memories of my day and I didn't have to spend a small fortune! I would
recommend Marge wholeheartedly and if I ever need another photo shoot, I
will contact Marge.
I love my photos! And to think I originally thought about taking one or
two good ones. I selected about 30 that I absolutely loved and emailed
them to my family and friends. Just gorgeous with the City Hall back

Working with Marge was a blast! She truly captured our
vision of how we wanted our engagement pictures to be. Booking with her was
really easy as well, because she was extremely eager to match our schedules.
We had a fabulous time, our pictures turned out great, and I would recommend
Marge to anyone!!!

Marge was wonderful! She was professional but fun, completely
unobtrusive, yet she was right there for every important moment and seemed to
capture everything! And we are SO happy with the outcome. Our pictures are
gorgeous. And the price was more than reasonable.

Marge was our wedding
photographer and she was awesome. She was everywhere at once and super easy to
work with. She arrived early and stayed late at the reception. She took over
1000 shots throughout the day! Marge is very high energy, got all of the
pictures and professional. She would double check shots to make sure that no
one was blinking. She was amazing!

It was worth it taking our time looking for the right photographer. We
found Marge just before we were about to book with this other photographer who was charging more than three times what Marge was charging.
Marge was very professional, very friendly and put us and our friends and
family at ease and came up with the most amazing photos at almost just a a quarter of the price the other photographer was charging! We loved our pics and
have been recommending Marge to people. The deluxe photo book we ordered looks
so professionally made, it looks like one of those expensive wedding books! We've
shown our photo book to so many people!

I feel proud of myself
for having found Marge. I spent hours and hours looking for a quality wedding
photographer I can afford. I painstakingly spent hours online, asking friends,
joining different wedding forums and encountered lots of disappointments with
the photographers out there who were charging thousands of dollars and only for a few
hours of coverage! A friend of mine suggested I go on Craigslist. And there I
found her. It was very easy to get in touch with her. I sent her an email and
left my number and she replied right away! She took really beautiful
photographs of my wedding (me getting ready, my entire ceremony & my
reception) and all for just $900.00! I told her I would refer her to my friends
and spread the word. I guess she has really low overhead costs so she passes on
those savings to brides & grooms with a tight budget (like me). =)

Marge was great. Anyone who can make me look good in a photo is great. We enjoyed
working with her. Her unintrusive style made us very comfortable. We look
forward to working with her again.

My husband and I were married in Millbrae. Marge's photography captured
the day perfectly. Her photos have a way of telling a story. I love to look
back at our wedding pictures because it is like reliving the best day of my
life all over again. I will definitely use Marge again in the future.

experience with Marge was exceptional. She was very professional and creative.
All of our photographs
turned out more beautiful than we could have ever imagined. Our wedding was at
Lake Merritt and Marge had great suggestions as to where we could take photos.
It was almost surreal
when we received our photo package. Marge had captured the feelings of every moment in every photo. It was like a story photo book beautifully showing how the day unfolded. We were blessed with amazing surroundings and the
lighting turned out great.
Her expertise showed all
of this in our photos. We highly recommend Marge for any of your photography
needs if you are in the Oakland/East Bay area. She has a great personality and we are
confident she would treat you as well as he treated us. Great job Marge!!!
