This week’s Photography Spotlight is on M. Studios! Stay tuned for Wednesday’s blog post featuring this dynamic duo’s fabulous work.
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. Where are you located and how far are you willing to travel?
M.Studios has an office at Hope Artiste Village in Pawtucket. We will travel anywhere and everywhere! We have shot weddings in New York City, Washington DC, Boston, Maine, New Hampshire, The Adirondacks, The Berkshires as well as many other places in New England. We even travelled to Philadelphia for an engagement session. We love to travel so destination weddings are our favorite!
4. How far in advance should you book?
As soon as you have your venue booked the next step should be photos. We book fast!
5. 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!
