ALL love is welcome here♥

 "love is love is love is love is love is love is love is love cannot be killed or swept aside" 

I'm Marla, life-long photographer and your new #1 fan-girl.

Hey there, cutie

I'm Marla, life-long photographer and your new #1 fangirl.

This picture sums it up pretty well, I think– big smile, messy hair, camera in my hands, glowing with the little sense of adventure that comes with exploring a new place (no matter how near or far!)

I love travel, indie music, intersectional feminism, and love. I am passionate about creating and capturing memories for friends and clients [/new friends]. I love everything about photography, and I want to share that love with you.

–– Danielle, 2020 Bride


Born a traveler, destined to see the world

 I mean it- I was born on vacation. My parents had me in La Jolla, California and started making the   drive back home to South Florida the very next day. 

 In the 23 years since, I've seen another 30 countries, 46 states, and made memories all over the   world, with no plans to ever stop traveling.
