It was an absolute privilege to have Marsha as our wedding photographer. We’ve had the honor having Marsha shoot for us on three different occasions, and she captured the best days of our lives perfectly. I was in a search of a photographer in Bakersfield(a city that I wasn’t familiar with), in hopes that they could secretly capture the moment I proposed to my then girlfriend Lupe. After speaking with Marsha on the phone, I knew I was making the right choice. From the very beginning, she took the time to listen to my ideas, and with her added creativity, she helped me make my vision a reality. For our engagement shoot, Marsha really demonstrated her creativity and used the urban downtown Fresno area as our backdrop. Every shot and every post was absolutely perfect. Marsha topped it off with our wedding. We can honestly say they there isn’t photo that we didn’t like. Every single one was absolutely beautiful. Not only are the moments she captured beautifully, but the lighting and clarity in every single photo are perfect. Marsha is a true professional. It is easy to see that Marsha loves what she does. She brings creative ideas and a lot of experience to the table.

Marsha is amazing!! The photographer was the biggest choice that I made for our wedding,other than the venue. I had met with other people before I met Marsha. Once I met her, I knew she was the one for us. She was so inviting and calm. Her work is amazing and it was exactly what I love. She took her time with us showing as many pictures as we wanted. Marsha would even take the time to meet with me to go over clothing options. She would respond to my text and calls all the time. I felt like I had too many questions but she didn’t mind. She made us feel calm when it was time to take pictures. We would play music and it was great! When it came to the wedding day, seeing her made me relax. She was like another friend/family member there with us. She really builds that relationship with you. Our pictures are wonderful and I look at them everyday. I cannot wait to work with her again in the future. Thank you so much Marsha! You truly made our engagement and wedding such a magical experience.

Marsha was phenomenal to work with. I searched and searched for a wedding photographer for months. When I initially came across Marsha she was booked for the date we had set in our minds… I was so discouraged because after seeing her AMAZING work via Instagram I knew she was the photographer we had been looking for! Needless to say, God works in mysterious ways. The venue we were looking into also happened to be booked the same weekend that Marsha was… When we chose a different date I immediately contacted Marsha and she was AVAILABLE!! Working with her was the absolute BEST choice we could have made. She reassured both my husband (fiancé at the time) and I of how a wedding works, gave us advice on vendors, scheduling, etc. She is such a welcoming and calming person to be around. She made taking pictures FUN and so relaxing! ALL of our photos turned out to be absolutely STUNNING!! We are so in love with both our engagement and wedding photos!! I STRONGLY suggest using Marsha for ANY of your photo needs! We will definitely be booking with her again.

Marsha is amazing!!!!! I first met her when I was coordinating a wedding at a venue I used to work at. I loved the way she worked with the bride, groom, and the whole family. She never showed stress! I knew in that moment I wanted her as my photographer for my wedding. Fast forward 3 years later and there she was by my side on the biggest day of my life! I told her what I wanted and she captured it plus more! To this day she is my go to photographer and a very sweet friend!
The first time I used Marsha, was for my Senior Pictures and she did amazing! So, it was a no brainer that when I was getting married, she would be my photographer! Marsha is meticulous, listens to your vision, and makes it exceed every expectation that you have. All I have left of my wedding day is the moments that Marsha was able to capture, and EVERY TIME I look back at them, I am able to relive that day through her pictures. You will honestly not be disappointed! She is my forever photographer.

Marsha shot my wedding this past August and the pictures were phenomenal. When I first met Marsha, she really took the time to get to know me. It was clear that she wanted to give me exactly what I wanted, which is really important in a photographer. Having my wedding on the top of Nob Hill in San Francisco, I really wanted the obligatory cable car shot, which wasn’t easy to get due to bad timing and RUDE cable car conductors! But she wouldn’t give up until she got me that shot because she knew how much it meant to me. Beyond the quality of her work, she really added to the whole magic of the day and it was so much fun getting to know her. I highly recommend her work!

“Oh my word! I could spend pages explaining just how amazing Marsha is! I have been blessed to have her by my side through births of babes and now family shoots! There is no one who can capture the spirit and sass of my girls like Marsha! She makes you feel comfortable and beautiful! Her artistry and eye for just the right shot shines through every click! She always has an encouraging word and her breath taking work speaks for itself! Thank you so much for capturing my memories and always shooting with your heart!” -

“Marsha!!! You have been such a blessing for Elias and I. With Elias being away in the military it was hard for us to find time to get together and plan wedding details. You not only got up at 4 in the morning to drive up 1 hour to the grapevine and shoot a “summery” photo in the middle of January, but you were also so pleasant and understanding. Your photography is only one amazing aspect of The Photege. The other aspects include your passion, your creativity and your personality. I encourage everyone to take a look at the fun photoshoots she did for our engagement and wedding. Thank you so much Marsha!”

“Marsha lives up to her motto “shoots with her heart!” She captures the best moments during any photo session. We had the privilege to have her photograph our miracle baby for an entire year. Every session was more than what I hoped for. The pictures speak for themselves & if you allow her she will even blog about your story. Always professional & personable & makes you feel so special. My favorite is how well she captures the details. Thank you! Thank you!”
