ESSEX WEDDING, ELOPEMENT AND FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER

Hi, I’m Maryann, an engagement and wedding photographer. I believe that life is worth documenting, from the momentous moments to the split second before a tear breaks. Every second of your wedding day is important. My style is relaxed and informal, allowing me to capture those intimate moments without ever feeling posed or unnatural. I believe that the best photographers blend into the background and allow the magic to happen around them. If that is what you’re looking for, click on the contact button up top to see if your date is available. Although I am based in Colchester Essex, I welcome enquiries from across the UK and worldwide, the wilder the better!

Client Testimonials

«As someone who hates having their picture taken, I was really nervous to be in front of the camera for my branding shoot. However, Maryann made me feel more at ease by suggesting we have a chat whilst she photographed me. She also photographed my children...one of whom doesn’t stay still, but we are absolutely in love with the pictures she took!I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Maryann. She’s a real star x»

«We had a wonderful shoot for the branding of our new company with Mary Ann. She has fantastic vision and is so easy to work with. And the final product is just breathtaking! We will be using her again without a doubt and we recommend her to anyone and everyone who will listen! If we could give ten stars we would however we will just have to settle for the five!»

«Where do I start! I have too many nice things to say about Maryanne! I and my husband had never had any Professional photos of us done, we wanted an engagement shoot and that’s when I stumbled across The Menagerie Lifestyle page. We wanted an outside and that was Walton on the Naze. It was an early evening shoot with our little dog as well and Maryanne & Nathan made us feel so comfortable. I was super happy with the engagement pictures when they came through and was so happy when Maryanne said she was able to do our wedding in Tenerife a few months later. Our day in Tenerife was about 35 degrees and everyone was so hot, in all the pictures you would never know that we were all dying of heat stroke. Maryanne captures moments in time that you never want to forget, I was getting ready with my bridesmaids and flower girls of all different ages. The room was a mess and we were all fanning each other, the pictures came out amazing! Something that I would have thought to have been chaos was perfection. I seriously cannot choose which photos I want to print out and put on the walls of our home as I love them all so much. I will always use The menagerie lifestyle for future shoots, whether it be for work, personal or family she is my go-to photographer. You will not regret going with them xx»

«Maryann photographed my wedding and the photos are amazing! Highly recommended.»

«I had the pleasure of working with Maryann for my branding shoot recently. I was so nervous about doing this but from the very first contact I had with Maryann, she made me feel totally at ease. She even organised a beautifully converted barn for me to use as the venue. The whole experience was fantastic and I absolutely love the images. Thank you so much to The Menagerie Lifestyle Photography!»
