The MSP Engagement Experience

The MSP Engagement Experience


Hi! I’m Mariko. I’m a photographer specializing in luxury wedding photography. When I’m not running my full time wedding business you can find me chasing my three kids and miniature schnauzer. I love going new places and I’m willing to travel all over.

Throughout my 4 years of shooting weddings, I’ve received quite a few complaints from brides whom I’ve never met before. They would approach me with something like ” OMG I booked a photographer and after our engagement session, I realized we’re not a good fit for each other. But now I am stuck in a contract with them.”  I’ve always felt so bad for these sweet couples because photography is not something you want to be unhappy with on your wedding day! 

That’s when I decided to create a system that allows me to work together before having to make that big decision of booking your photographer.  I am proud to say that 90% of couples who tried me out, have booked me for their weddings. The difference is, this time they KNOW for sure that they won’t be disappointed on their wedding day!!

Kind words from past couples

The Process

I’m a natural, candid photographers (like a paparazzi, without the big ugly flash and way less pushy).  I focus on documenting YOU.  Who you are, what you enjoy together, the little quirks that make your love strong.  The very first step to planning your engagement experience is to schedule a phone call to get to know you.  This is a 15 minute meet & greet to learn more about what your visions are for your photographs. 

After we chat on the phone I will follow up with you in an email and send over what’s included in the engagement session as well as my available dates for the shoot.  You will also receive a complimentary style guide that will walk you through choosing your outfits! 

During the session I will make work to make you feel as laid back and comfortable as possible. Think of it as, the two of you hanging out together, laughing,  playing, and loving on each other. And I’m there in the background, documenting it all. 

After the session we will set up an online web chat meeting to go over your images, pick out your free goodies, as well as answer any of your questions you have about my wedding packages.  You will be offered the opportunity to purchase any additional products or digitals from your session if you’d like. When you choose me for your wedding, the entire engagement session is gifted to you!
