Focal Photographer: Marlboro
If you’re just looking for any wedding photographer you may want to look somewhere else.
Marlboro is a true visual storyteller - he will capture a raw and passionate chapter of your love story. Moments that you won’t be able to help yourself look back on and smile.
Marlboro sees photography as a 3 dimensional art on a 2 dimensional surface which is why he is able to find the perfect angle, using a combination of natural and artificial light to compose and capture beautiful authentic moments.
Marlboro is the type of artist that thinks carefully about each click of the shutter. You'll see him continuously adjusting his lights, straightening out decor and fine tuning to get his perfect composition. There's nothing that he does that is without purpose.
He is also a wonderfully caring person who will make you laugh, feel comfortable and like the star of your own show in front of the camera.
Marlboro embodies all the qualities of the perfect Focal visual storyteller - his attention to detail, artistic vision and true desire to make his clients happy is unmatched.
Why do you use artificial lights? Why not just use natural light?
Think of photography as a language and light its vocabulary. Many “photographers” use natural light because it is easy. However, to truly compose the perfect a shot, a photographer must control the complex interplay of light on the subject. To do so, Marlboro uses multiple lights to fill the unwanted shadows and add dimension between the foreground, middle ground and background.
I get really nervous in front of the camera, how will the photographer ensure I’m comfortable?
It can be intimidating being in front of the camera, with a big strobe light pointed at you - but don’t worry we’ll make you feel like a movie star!
To get the perfect shot, it’s critical that the subject and photographer are comfortable and trust each other. Marlboro will put you at ease by talking with you, cracking the occasional joke and shooting while you talk. He also has some great exercises to help you relax, feel confident and find comfort in front of the camera.
I'm not comfortable paying the full balance up front, can I split the payment?
