A note from Mariel. . .
Photography is an art that I value most than other art forms. It is where I found my voice. Almost a decade ago I began my journey exploring this medium. As a self taught artist, every skill and knowledge stems from an authentic desire to perfect my craft. I strive to create imagery with love, care and thoughtfulness, intertwined with tendrils of romance & an ethereal heart.
Each detail, composition and photograph must be perfect.
I find my inspiration from places traveled - the culture, the scenery, architecture and ultimately, art from past centuries. Together with my husband Abraham, we have had the pleasure to travel to numerous destinations around the globe, working and collaborating with our beloved clients. I truly thank you for taking time to explore our art. We look forward to connecting!

Mariel and her husband, Abe, were two of the sweetest and most creative people my husband and I have met. They are a joy to work with, making us (a camera shy couple) feel comfortable and photogenic. As a duo, they are able to capture carefully curated moments that reflect a great eye for artistic direction as well as random moments that we cherish to have forever. After our engagement shoot, Mariel was even kind enough to send me some dried flowers from my bouquet that were framed beautifully as I live in Canada and couldn't enjoy the blooms for very long. I'm sure I could go on and on, but we both feel that working with Mariel Hannah Photography was the best choice we could have made
