Many years ago, Marla's photography was brought to my attention by a friend. I was immediately drawn to her timeless, classic look that she portrays. A couple years later I got engaged and the first thing I did when I left dinner that night was get on my phone and try to contact Marla. I knew that I would never be happy if I didn't get her to be my wedding photographer...Boy was I right! Working with Marla thus far has been nothing short of amazing. She is always reaching out to me, sending kind words, and truly showing me that she cares about this journey I am on. Marla is extremely caring and her love for photography and people in general radiates off her. While planning our engagement photos, Marla took into consideration all the things my fiancé and I wanted and the photos turned out more perfect than I had ever imagined it would. Marla and Dustin did all they could to make that 90 degree day as perfect as possible. The shoot flowed seamlessly, was so very relaxing, and more than enjoyable. I'll never forget the way Marla's photography made me feel when I saw our engagement shoot. Words cannot describe the excitement I'm feeling for my wedding day so Marla can capture that as well!! I would have never wanted more from a photographer- Marla Thach Photography is by far the most phenomenal photographer I've worked with!

FINDING MARLA FELT LIKE FINDING A NEW FAMILY FRIEND THAT JUST SO HAPPENS TO BE AN AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHER! SHE IS SUCH A SWEETHEART AND SOOO GOOD WITH THE LITTLE ONES! EACH YEAR ONE OF MY GIRLS DECIDES TO BE A "CHALLENGE" AND MARLA KEEPS A GREAT ATTITUDE WHILE CHASING THEM AROUND AND WORKING HARD FOR THE SHOT! EVEN WHEN WE GOT STUCK IN A WINDSTORM AND MY YOUNGEST REFUSED TO SMILE, SHE STILL SOMEHOW MANAGED TO PRESENT US WITH A DOZEN INCREDIBLE, FRAME WORTHY IMAGES! AND OFFERED US A RESHOOT IN BETTER WEATHER WHICH WE REALLY APPRECIATED - THOUGH HAVEN'T YET TAKEN HER UP ON BECAUSE THE ONES SHE DID GET TURNED OUT SO GOOD! MARLA HAS A GREAT SENSE OF STYLE AND IT SHOWS IN HER WORK. HER PHOTOS HAVE A TRADEMARK WARM AND ROMANTIC VIBE WHICH IS DUE IN PART TO HER KEEN EYE FOR CAPTURING REAL LIFE MOMENTS AND TRUE EMOTIONS BUT ALSO TO HER SKILLED EDITING. MARLA IS VERY PROFESSIONAL AND PROVIDES HIGH QUALITY SERVICES. PLUS SHE'S ADORABLE AND SUCH A JOY TO WORK WITH! I CANNOT RECOMMEND HER ENOUGH!!

MARLA WAS AN ABSOLUTE JOY TO WORK WITH!! SHE'S NOT ONLY AMAZING AT WHAT SHE DOES; SHE'S ALSO PROFESSIONAL, TIMELY, AND A RAY OF LIGHT! I WILL DEFINITELY BE LOOKING TO SHOOT WITH MARLA AGAIN IN THE NEAR FUTURE!

Working with Marla is like having your best friend be your photographer. If you need help with outfits, location, poses/ideas; she is always willing to listen and guide you through the process. She was patient with me when I would use her as a sounding board for all our shoots, never getting annoyed when I would send tons of texts with pictures of different outfits to choose from. She shot our engagement pictures, wedding, and holiday family portraits. She has provided our family with a lifetime of memories and we couldn’t be more thankful. She has such a fun, easy-going spirit that radiates in everything she does. It’s easy to feel comfortable in front of the camera when she’s behind it. Her work speaks for itself, simply amazing!

MARLA IS A DREAM TO WORK WITH. FOR OVER FOUR YEARS NOW, MARLA HAS BEEN A PART OF CAPTURING ALL OF OUR BIG MEMORIES WITHOUT ANY DISAPPOINTMENT. NOT ONLY IS SHE PROFESSIONAL, BUT SHE IS AMAZING WITH KIDS, NEVER LOSES HER PATIENCE (EVEN ON THE HOTTEST DAY WITH A KID WHO WANTS TO DO ANYTHING BUT SMILE) AND SOMEHOW ALWAYS GETS THE MOST AMAZING SHOTS. I AM ASKED AT LEAST ONCE A MONTH WHO TAKES ALL OF OUR FAMILY PHOTOS AND I AM HAPPY TO BE ABLE TO RECOMMEND SUCH A FANTASTIC WOMAN!

WE'VE WORKED WITH MARLA SINCE WE WERE JUST A FAMILY OF 4, WE ARE NOW A FAMILY OF 6! AT FIRST, SHE WAS JUST OUR PHOTOGRAPHER BUT AFTER ONE SESSION I KNEW SHE WAS WAY MORE THAN JUST THAT; WE LOVED EVERYTHING ABOUT HER & HER WORK. SHE WAS THE FIRST ONE I SHARED THE NEWS OF MY PREGNANCY WITH, INCLUDING THE GENDER OF BOTH BOYS (THE SECOND I LEFT THE OBGYN, HAHA!) - SHE HAS BEEN SHOOTING WITH US FOR A FEW YEARS NOW & I PLAN ON BEING A FOREVER CLIENT!
