Our staff is unique and hand picked. Each member of our staff love what they do, that's why we're in this industry. No two events are ever the same (even events that we work every year) so we don't treat them that way.

Marianne Bolduc - Professional Event Photographer
Marianne began taking photos when she got her first camera at the age of 11. She learned her skills initially on film and in the darkroom, but at a time where film was parallel to the rise of digital photography she learned as much about Photoshop as she did about chemistry. She has a large collection of antique and historic cameras and is always looking for a way to incorporate the feel of film into the digital world. While achieving a degree in another field, Marianne actively pursued photography on hte side. Since the early 00's, she has been focused on capturing live music, fashion, and events. Her interests have grown to include portraiture, nature, and the pursuit of pausing time and capturing the feeling of a moment in any image she makes. She believes that photography is as much a science as it is an art. Her style is journalistic, artistic and thoughtful. She loves to play with light and to help others feel comfortable in front of her lens.
We also have several DJ assistants available on staff for those events that require the extra attention, as well as a DJ in training.
