Colorful, unique photos for equally colorful, unique people.

Serving SLC, Utah + Beyond



So basically…

Everyone wants photos totally unique to them and their unique relationship, yet when you go to a photographer’s instagram feed all too often you see couples + weddings that all kind of look…the same. There are too many people in the world to only post couples that fit “the norm”, which is why I don’t have a curated feed-I love serving all couples regardless of race, size, gender, or sexuality-I’m proud to include everyone in my portfolio. Unique couples mean unique photos, I personalize photos by getting to know you through it all-emailing, texting, facebooking…pretty much anything you use, I’ll use to get a better grasp on who you are as a couple so your photos are specific to you, and most importantly so we get to know each other. I’m going to be there from the proposal all the way to your sparkler exit, I want you to know that I’ve got your back so you don’t have to worry about any details during one of the most stressful & blissful times of your life.

As a creative at heart, I love coordinating with my couples on all aspects of their session/wedding (i.e. understanding how lighting/time of day will affect photos, location, any details-first looks, letters, a dog, favorite coffee, anything!) in order to get the most memorable, authentically “you” photos we possibly can!

Marina rey -

Your photographer

Vibrant, representative photography for couples in love

I understand you’re not a professional model and you don’t want to be, which is why I direct my couples into natural actions while correcting anything that may look misplaced. I love moments between people and trying to force them has never worked for me or my couples-I like my sessions to be fun, relaxed, and true to the people I’m working with. I love that my photos serve my couples needs and what makes them feel good about themselves. Photos should be a form of self care and have you feeling confident about who you are. Everyone deserves professional photos that truly represent them. Not just those who fit the “norm” (whatever the hell that is!). I love serving every kind of person no matter who you are. People are different which is exactly what makes them beautiful and interesting to capture.

Amazingly talented photographer!!!
Marina was a dream to work with, on top of saving the day. We had hired another photographer and 3 weeks before our vow renewal we had to let her go due to lack of professionalism. I called Marina to to see if she was available for our date and if she would be willing to travel all the way to Wilmington/Carolina Beach area, and she said yes. On the day of the renewal she was on time and looked very professional. She was sweet and respectful and was willing to take the specific photos we wanted on top of the normal photos. I also received many compliments from my guests about her. The photos themselves turned out beautiful. She captured the magic and happiness of the day. When I received our photos I cried at how perfect they were. I strongly recommend her from any special event.

I love every shoot that we have with Marina. (And there have been a few!) It’s amazing how passionate and knowledgeable she is about her work. I never feel like she is rushed to finish our shoot within a time slot, rather, she takes her time and puts great care into capturing her subjects in an authentic, beautiful way. We have so much fun and the pictures that come out of each shoot are gorgeous! We just had a shoot a few days ago, and I’m already looking to plan the next. Don’t miss out on having your special moments captured by Marina Rey Photography!

  • How far in advance should we book?

    I suggest couples book about six months to a year in advance. If you are already past that mark, feel free to contact me anyways just in case I have your date available! Sometimes a few months in advance can be far enough. Dates do fill up quickly during wedding season (late April- mid October) so if you’ve set a date during a popular time of year, make sure you are prepared to book ASAP as those times go the fastest!

  • When should we book our engagement session?

    Engagement sessions are generally taken 2-3 months before your wedding date. That gives me plenty of time to edit your photos, send them to you, and for you to get them on an invitation you like to send out to everyone you love :).

  • How much coverage do you suggest?

    This is a tough question to answer without having context! Everyone has their own special situation and needs for their wedding, but generally speaking if you’re just wanting simple coverage of the ceremony + reception, I suggest at minimum four hours. If you’re wanting something more detail oriented (getting ready photos, first look, ceremony, etc) I suggest at the very least, six hours of wedding coverage. I do customize packages and can be flexible depending on what you got going on ;)

  • How does this work? What does hiring you look like?

    Great question! I actually have an entire page dedicated to this here!

so…how does this work?

  1. Contacting me: Once you’ve contacted me I’ll be sure to get back to you within 24 hrs, whether that be through email, text, or social media I’ll be sure to respond!

  2. Hashing out the details: Give me all the deets! Dates, timelines, anything important to your wedding photo coverage will be addressed at this stage.

  3. Proposal: After we’ve gotten all the details squared away, I’ll send you a proposal confirming any and all important details (dates, locations, etc.).

  4. Deposit: Once you’ve agreed to the proposal and we’ve addressed any and all questions you have, we’ll move onto the deposit! This is just to solidify your date to book me.

  5. ABC-Always Be Clickin’: This is the fun part! You show up to our agreed location and we get to hang out, laugh, and get some amazing photos that not only you can post on your Instagram, but ones your grandma will hang in her living room.

  6. The wait: Remember how the step before this was the fun part? Well, this is the worst part-waiting on your beautiful images! But don’t worry, it should only take 2-3 weeks to get your photos back. That’s right! Only 2-3 weeks and you’ll be on your way to hanging up beautiful wedding photos all around your house.

  7. Delivery: Once your photos have been perfected to my standards, I’ll send you your photos plus a delivery form stating that you’ve properly received your photos and that you love them :)

  8. Print release: After you’ve signed your delivery form and sent it my way, I’ll be sending you your print release which allows you to print wherever you’d like! I know I like having lots of options to pick for printing so I always include a print release for my clients.
