Hi! I’m Mariko and I’m a super chill Baton Rouge wedding photographer. I live in Denham Springs, but I shoot weddings all over Louisiana and surrounding areas.
The name Isabelle Rose comes from my great grandmother. I wanted her name to live on in my photography because they both bring me love and happiness.
I live with my husband (who I'm currently trying to convince to take a photo), three kids, a 3 legged beagle (I know you want to ask…), and a mischievous miniature schnauzer. I love all things sci-fi/fantasy (hello Harry Potter and Star Wars), Sephora (so much makeup, so little time), and The Office (raise your hand if you ugly cried at Jim and Pam's wedding ✋). But most of all I love documenting the moments that couples will look back on years down the road.
My love of capturing important life changing moments is what made me want to become a photographer. I’ve been a photographer for 3 years and I can’t imagine doing anything else. The best thing about being a wedding is that I get to photograph people in love, witness life changing moments, and eat wedding cake (because who doesn't love cake!?!).
My couples love to have a good time, and the last thing they want is a photographer who bosses them about and takes over their wedding day.
My wedding photography style is romantic and classic. I capture all the romantic and funny moments, and let you get on with having an awesome day. For me the best part about a wedding day is the ceremony, because it’s so intimate and beautiful. I’ve been known to shed a tear or two. But a close second is the reception. I love to watch everyone have fun and party on the dance floor.
Your wedding is all about capturing this once in a lifetime moment. You don’t care about worrying about the little things that don’t matter or having all the “things” – you just want to have an amazing time with your favorite people.
