Photography Spotlight is on M.Studios this week — Learn more about this talented duo as well as their best advice!
1. How did M.Studios come to be?
Marisa and I have been friends for almost 20 years. One thing that we’ve always had in common is a love of photography. We were both doing photography professionally but separately. I was working for Snap! Photography as a lead photographer. Marisa was shooting portraits and doing freelance work for companies like Alex and Ani. We started hiring each other to assist on jobs we had when we finally had that “aha” moment! We saw the opportunity of not only doing what we love but being able to do it with your best friend. Could it get anymore perfect than that?! So, in 2011 M.Studios was born and it has been the greatest thing for both of us.
2. What types of photography services do you offer?
While we mostly focus on weddings we also do portraits, head shots, and event photography. We also have a super swanky photo booth that is always the life of the party!
3. What is the best advice you can give to anyone being photographed?
Trust your photographer! You hired them because you saw something in their work that spoke to you. If you trust in their vision it allows your photographer to work their magic. Also don’t be afraid to ham it up! Laugh a little too much, flip your hair, be overly romantic, and just have fun with it!
4. How far are you willing to travel?
We will travel anywhere and everywhere! We have shot weddings in New York City, Washington DC, Boston, Maine, New Hampshire as well as many other places in New England. We even traveled to Philadelphia for an engagement session. This year we are going to the Adirondacks in upstate New York and we can’t wait! We love to travel so destination weddings are our favorite!
