THAT FILL YOUR WALLS AND REMIND YOU OF LIFE’S SWEETEST SEASONS? THAT’S OUR SPECIALTY.
Close those twenty-six open browser tabs, you’ve found your photographer.
Hey there! I’m Mariko ((That’s pronounced Mah-Re-Ko. Emphasis on the “Mah”. Like Mario with a K!). I’m a Baton Rouge wedding photographer for the couple that wants not only beautiful photos but an experience to match.
I’m just someone who was always artsy but wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with my life. I was convinced I was bound to be a scientist. I was all about the marine biology life. But then I realized that being creative made me the happiest.
I genuinely can’t believe that I get invited to be a part of such a huge life event in my couple’s lives. I’m so honored and grateful.
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. Being a part of one of the big milestones in a couple’s life is such an amazing feeling.
Mariko was great!!! She had poses already picked out and in every picture she told us what to do!! All of the pictures turned out beautiful and I was very satisfied with her!!

I want to celebrate with you…
Something that I realized was that in the sea of wedding photographers was that everyone offers a variation of the same thing. And what they offer seems more focused on the photographer’s needs rather than the couple. So I decided that I needed to put my couple’s needs first.
My mission is to make your wedding about you! I can’t wait to make that happen for you, friend. I create an experience unique to each couple’s needs.
My favorite things…
So we might be friends if you love Star Wars and Harry Potter (I’m a Ravenclaw). We’ll totally get along is you love The Office (raise your hand if you ugly cried at Jim and Pam’s wedding). We can definitely be besties if you have a love for superheroes (I’m Team Marvel but I won’t hold it against you if you’re Team DC), sci-fi, and even a princess or two.
I have a weakness for icees/slushees (I’m all about that frozen drink life) and Japanese food. I’m also obsessed with musicals. You’ll most likely find me on the couch with a warm blanket and a book. Especially on rainy days.
are you ready?
My mission is for you to have photos so you can relive your wedding day.! I can’t wait to make that happen for you, friend. I want to make sure that all the moments you treasure are captured for you to look back on as the years pass.
