ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Our mission is to inspire you...
If you read on below, you can learn about our awards and credentials, and surely that will allow you to understand that we are the best person for any assignment you could bring to our way. However, that was then, yesterday, this is now, and the future has endless possibilities. Wouldn't the future be cool if you suddenly found yourself working with people who bring out your best thoughts, make you look your best, make you feel as beautiful as you are on the inside, and then be rewarded with a product that is uniquely you. That would be a real one of a kind for sure.
If you think that would be amazing, you simply must reach out to us. We promise that what you see online is just a taste of our imagination. The best we saved for you, and the only way we can share our real vision is to experience it first hand. Let's make it happen... Together In Style!
THE BEST KEPT SECRET...
Chances are you found Maring Visuals by referral. Otherwise you just stumbled upon something very special, and it must be fate. That's because we are the best kept secret among those in the know, and we kind of like it that way. We don't advertise in magazines or on wedding websites because we like to keep in good company with likeminded businesses who put quality first. We are a small, and very personalized, studio that caters one on one to each individual, and therefore we can only take on a limited number of assignments each year. We are not the most expensive studio out there by any means, but we most certainly aren't the cheapest either. However, we are well balanced to be able to provide our clients with the very best in terms of service and product integrity with fare, honest, and upfront pricing. We work by referral alone, and the only way we can do that is to serve our clients to a higher standard. 5 Stars all the way...
STYLE... A Beautiful Balance of Art and History...
While we make it look easy, real moments, with gorgeous natural skin tones, and creative lighting is actually the most complicated style of photography one can achieve. This is especially true for weddings and events, which are constantly changing and in motion as there is only one chance to get it right. At Maring we don't settle for filters to cover-up bad color and lighting. Rather, like a great Hollywood film, we get it right in camera making our photographs beautiful from the very click of the shutter. However, to earn the Maring signature our photographs and films do go through a subtle, yet intense, post production workflow to give our images that quality worthy of winning the International Photography Awards. It's a beautiful balance of art and history, and it's a style all our own.
