a creative portrait photographer

Hi, friend! I’m Marina, a creative portrait photographer based in beautiful Salt Lake City, Utah. I’m here to share what I’ve learned with photographers eager to make their work more creative and reel in the clients that trust their unique vision. 

Throughout my life, my obsession with creating has gone through different phases - from making magazine collages to sewing my clothes - to eventually discovering photography and pursuing it as a career.

After over 10 years of practice, studying photography in college, and working in-house for brands, I’m now lucky enough to bring my ideas to reality as a full time portrait photographer, creating imagery for clients and for fun (just like you!).

If you’re feeling stuck, you’re in the right place. I know what it feels like to struggle with balancing your business, social media, and creativity. I’m here to help - I’ve created resources in pursuit of helping you on your path to running a photography business that fulfills you both creatively and financially.
