Hi friends, I'm Mari!

I'm a portrait photographer based out of the beautiful city of Salt Lake. I received my BFA in photography from the University of Utah where I shot almost solely on film, and oh how I miss those days in the darkroom! After graduation, I started photographing weddings in 2011 and have since added families, birth stories, and much more to my repertoire. I've been capturing the genuine connections that my clients have for their loved ones. I want to preserve that love! Your connections with the people you love should be celebrated for years to come, and it is my goal to help you do just that.

When I’m not working, my life is in full mama mode. I’ve got two cute kiddos, Airi and Kai, and a darling husband, DJ, who keeps this family in check. I have always enjoyed traveling and experiencing new places and cultures, Indian food practically puts me to sleep it is so dang delicious, and one of my favorite lazy pastimes includes watching/making fun of The Bachelor with the hubs. It’s a good life.
