Hi Marilyn! 

Thank you for all of the kind words! You were absolutely amazing in helping make our day as special as could be. 

I cannot thank you enough for all of the small things that you and Jeremy suggested that turned out so well. Pulling us during the reception to take photos alone in the cocktail hour area was one of if not my favorite part of the day. It really was a special moment and we owe it all to you both. 

You and Jeremy went above and beyond to capture our day and have not taken your foot off the gas! Thank you for continuing to work hard and getting our sneak peek out as fast as possible! The sneak peek has made my heart melt! The pictures have already turned out better than I expected. I cannot wait to see what the rest of the content looks like!

Dear Marilyn,

Thank you so much! We had the most wonderful day and you captured it so perfectly! I just saw your preview album a bit ago and I am honestly stunned. You do incredible work and I am just gushing over every photo. 

I am so thankful that we were able to have you photograph our day. You took note of every little detail, captured both glamorous and silly poses, and helped to incorporate some special long-standing family traditions (Spameos!) I will forever recommend you without hesitation.

We are just over the moon right now ❤️

"I would say hands down the single best decision we made was choosing you to shoot our wedding. Your photos take my breath away and they truly bring out the feelings I have for the people in my life. Your ability to capture the beauty around us and the emotion within us is incredible."

"Can't say enough great things about Marilyn and her staff. They went above and beyond to make sure our pictures turned out amazing. They made sure we got out pictures done in a timely manner after the ceremony. Marilyn's dedication to her clients is unheard of. From driving over and hour to scout the venue for our engagement pictures and wedding pictures. To working timelessly to get our engagement pictures back for our party. As someone who hates getting their picture taken, I enjoyed taking my wedding pictures and Marilyn and her staff made everyone feel comfortable and at ease. Thank you again for all your hard work!" - Megan, Bride - Sarasota, Wedding

"If you know Marilyn you know how amazing she is in general, but the time and effort she puts into her photography is truly incredible. Our wedding was a backyard wedding at my mom's. Upon first meeting with Marilyn we had no time frame for the day's events and to be honest were completely anxious about how the day was going to go. In less than an hour Marilyn essentially mapped out our wedding timeline, eased our nerves, and actually helped us get excited about our big day. The day of the wedding, her patience with my crazy family and ability to be flexible while still helping us keep up with the timeline of events blew my mind. Not only are my photos incredible, but I feel like Marilyn really captured who my husband and I are as a couple. She really takes the time to make it individualized and special. 5 stars all the way. She will be my go to from here on out for all my new family's milestones."-Morgan, Bride - Lakeland Wedding

"Marilyn was wonderful to work with. She was more of an extension of our wedding guests versus a vendor. She will know more people in your two families than your own Aunt Sally. And not because she was seeking them for a photo, but because of how personal she is. Other exceptional qualities include: Compassionate Detail Oriented (even provided a day of schedule!) Great with kids! Love her user friendly site to download and share photos." -Hailey, Bride - Orlando Wedding

"Seriously, I have no idea how you did it, but these pictures are absolutely amazing! I am so happy with how good they turned out. The way you captured, fun, playful...BRILLIANT!!! I really hate taking pictures and was skeptical that I'd like pictures of me, but you've blown me away. There isn't one I can say I hate and there are so many I love I can't even pick a favorite. I'm sooo happy you are going to be there on my big day. THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH!!!"- Candice, Bride - Downtown Tampa Wedding

"Wow!!!!! Marilyn is absolutely amazing on so many levels. For starters, she is so genuine and excited about what she does and her passion and love truly shows. She made me feel so at ease with her. She truly went above and beyond all of my expectations from the first time I spoke with her to following up with her now for planning a family photo shoot. She is timely, organized and extremely professional. That doesn't even touch on her amazing abilities to photograph, the editing, and capturing the moments. I was not expecting to get my photos back so quick or the slide show she sent to me ahead of time. All of my guest continue to tell me how amazing Marilyn was which also really says something. She truly made my night amazing and I know that I had the best photographer out there <3 " - Kelly, Bride - Palm Harbour Wedding

"Marilyn is a very talented photographer, no doubt about it. But even more important than that, she is a total sweetheart. She was so patient with me and my bridal party during our portraits when we were being constantly interrupted by phone calls, people knocking on the door, upset kids crying around and relatives running late for the portraits. She made this whole experience magical, I truly felt like a super model and I was really excited about every single shot we were setting. They are absolute perfection. Thanks Marilyn for your hard work. It was a pleasure working with you." -Lina, Bride- St. Petersburg Beach Wedding

"Marilyn is an amazing photographer. She was with us the entire time, from the rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, morning of the wedding, ceremony and reception; capturing memories that will be cherished forever. Jeremy Michael Tailor did an amazing job! She is very flexible and attentive, with an amazing eye for photography. She is very comfortable to work with as well as passionate about what she does; taking time and focusing on what was truly important to my (now husband) and I. We were truly grateful we found Rising Lotus Photography for our wedding." -Kristy, Bride
