Hi my name is Mariko. Mah-Ree-Co. Kinda like Mario with a "K". I’m the photographer behind Isabelle Rose photography. Why not use my name? Because no one can pronounce Mariko. Kidding 😜. But no really, I named my business after two of my grandmothers who are no longer with us. They remind me that you can never have enough photos of the important moments and to live life with love and laughter
I’m not only a wedding photographer, I am a mother of three. Three?!?! Yup. And you know what three kids have taught me? Patience and the ability to juggle lots of things at once. So you better believe I know how to handle whatever a wedding day can throw at me when it comes to photographing different situations.
As if my life isn’t wild enough, we have a 3 legged beagle (The husband jokes we got hungry and ate a leg. He’s kidding of course) and miniature schnauzer. What was I thinking adding the pups on top of everything else? But they’re adorable, sweet, sneaky, and I love them.
But why weddings? The answer’s easy. Love, happiness, celebration, and cake. Because who doesn’t love cake? (Ok, my husband doesn’t love cake. But that just means more for everyone else.) I help make sure this all important day is one you can look back on and remember. I’m a hopeless romantic with a serious love for a good rom com. I love getting to see couples in love starting their new journey together.
What else? Oh yeah! A few things I LOVE...
* Star Wars
* Harry Potter
* The Office (raise your hand if you ugly cried at Jim and Pam's wedding ✋)
* Icees/slushees/I’m all about that frozen drink life
* A good book on a rainy day
* Anything sci-fi, superheroes, and even a princess or two
