About Marla
Your moment only happens once. Capture it.
A corporate lifestyle, portrait, and events photographer, I see a project from concept to execution with the full spectrum of my creativity and talent to achieve your goals. My work encapsulates the passion of real people and the beauty of real environments while maintaining a cohesive narrative flow across mediums to express the essence of your brand.
I’ve been telling stories through my lens for 20 years, beginning as a photo editor at Wired before managing multiple channels of content for HotWired. A California native with stints in Los Angeles and Northern California, I seek authentic personalities, design, culture, and products with which to innovate a vision.
When not working, you can find me wildcrafting dandelion wine in Oakland or scouring the world for the perfect swimming hole.
