Full Description
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!

I wouldn't hesitate to reccomend MaryAnn to anyone
We used MaryAnn's services for our wedding having stumbled upon her portfolio from her previous work. We were not disappointed. MaryAnn was a pleasure to work with from the early planning stages to being a calming presence on the day itself. Her work is incredible and she captured our day perfectly. Our family and friends have been blown away by our pictures. I wouldn't hesitate to reccomend MaryAnn to anyone!

We would have no doubts in recommending her
We came across The Menagerie on Instagram. We used Maryann as our wedding photographer, her and Nathan done an amazing job at capturing the raw emotion of the day without being over bearing and the post editing quality is brilliant. We would have no doubts in recommending her to anyone looking for a documentary style photographer. We will be using her again in the future for our maturity/baby pictures, which are again amazing!!!

I was looking for someone who can photograph both
Before I found the menagerie lifestyle photography have looks through 122 links from different photographers. What really pulled me in is her styles, the mood, the composition of her images and creativity. I was looking for someone who can photograph both Portrait & Details - the people, the location and all tiny details of what made our day special. We both Adore her visions and the way her photographs were captured the stories telling images just grab me by the heart. They are very professional, turned up on time, very friendly, very helpful and so polite. They made our day at ease. We both totally thrilled, impressed with the beautiful results and truly greatful to have the menagerie lifestyle photography captured our big day. Rich & Kay

Maryanne captures moments in time that you never w
Where do I start! I have too many nice things to say about Maryanne! Me 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 aswell 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 of 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

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

Sparkly wellies for Alpaca feeding (the bride LOVED Alpacas!)

Describe your typical process with a couple.

1. An exchange of emails 2. Meet you and make sure we get along, answer your questions and show you some sample galleries. 3. Send over electronic contracts and invoice, the most eco option. 4. Engagement photoshoot if you've chosen one. 5. Wedding day fun! 6. Sneak peeks a day or two later. 7. Your full gallery and prints within 6-8 weeks.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

Take a few moments out, just the two of you, generally around sunset and just be! It normally results in the kind of photos that end up on a couples wall.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Umbrellas! A little rain doesn't mean no outside photos, it means we get creative.
