Originally from New York, at the age of 19, Maryanne drove cross country until she parked her bug by the sea and fell in love. She received her BA in Communications/Visual Arts from UCSD and then opened McGuire Photography.
Maryanne McGuire is hands down, the most talented,professional and fun photographer I have ever come across.
Our wedding was trans-Atlantic, we had two ceremonies in two different countries. I was very disappointed by the photos of our first ceremony and Maryanne's photos were a redeeming experience.
She was unobtrusive throughout the ceremony, staying clear of our guests view and not getting too close for comfort. She was helpful in giving instructions and making all of her subject feel comfortable, she has an eye for esthetics and moving moments, she finds the most beautiful angles in any environment, plays beautifully with light and shade and is prompt, skilled and pleasant to work with.
Now that we have a new baby, we can't wait to get back to the US and have her do our family portrait.
Maryanne was such an incredible find! Our wedding and engagement photos came out better than I could ever imagine. Not only did she do an amazing job capturing us and our personalizes, but the rest of our guests as well. She did a fantastic job getting us organized, coming up with incredible shots, and keeping us on task. She is truly talented and knows her craft well. We are so grateful to work with her and would recommend Maryanne for anyone's memorable moments.
If you’re looking for someone special to capture your special day...Marianne McGuire is the way to go! Marianne came highly recommend from close friends. Her energy, style, and passion are seen through her incredible work! Marianne was so great to communicate with throughout the whole process! My husband and I were absolutely blown away by her photos! We met with Marianne first to just meet and to get to know each other. This was so helpful because we got to talk about what we were looking for and had a chance to review some of her work. This helped all of us to have a better understanding of the specific styles we were drawn to. We also did an engagement photo shoot with Marianne. Marianne captured us so perfectly! She was open to any ideas/locations that we had, and also guided us whenever she saw that perfect shot! This was such a fun day and would highly recommend doing an engagement shoot as this was a great way for us to get more comfortable for our big day and also get a better understanding of specific styles/shots that we were looking for. Marianne’s turn around time was awesome! We are so happy that we now have these photos to capture this special time of our lives! Marianne and her second shooter, Misha, were absolutely fabulous throughout our entire wedding day! They were both on time, organized, and had great energy! Marianne’s style is one of the many reasons why we chose her and we were absolutely blown away by the images and moments that were captured. Marianne listened to any requests or ideas that we had, while also using her expertise to guide us whenever she saw a perfect shot! Marianne’s turnaround time was also very timely. Marianne even met with us for a special viewing of our Wedding Photos. Marianne has several packages to choose from and works with you to help you stay in your budget! Her work is truly a reflection of her artistic passion and talent! We would highly recommend Marianne to photograph any of your special occasions!
