The focus of my photography is on the FEELING and EMOTION of the PEOPLE in the photo. I am always looking for the CONNECTION – of the person to his/her authentic self, to the beauty of the moment, to the loved ones also in the photo.
My photos capture the energy that allow you FEEL that moment and that emotion years later. And isn’t that the PURPOSE of a photo?
Portraits from the heart – Heart-centered photography – family, legacy, babies
Weddings, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, Sweet 16 – Journalistic photos and portraits that capture the LOVE, AUTHENTICITY, and BEAUTY of your special day
Corporate Events – Journalistic photos that showcase the energy of the event and make the attendees look amazing
Does creativity really matter in a photographer? YES! When you want portraits that really show who you are, you want a photographer who knows how to get the shots. My training and experience with improv and theater means that I think on my feet, come up with endless possibilities to BRING OUT THE AUTHENTIC BEAUTY IN YOU, or in a wedding setting, to create an appropriately fun atmosphere that puts everyone at ease so that their authentic beauty shines through in the photos.
I’m an artist and director with a strong visual sense so I know what looks good, and how to make you look amazing in a photo.
When I was 9 years old, I lost my mom to breast cancer so I cherish the few photos I have of her. I understand the value of portraits that your children and family members will hold dear for years to come. Life is not as long as we think it is, and time passes quickly. These moments in your life are VALUABLE and PRECIOUS and IMPORTANT.
My mission is to memorialize these beautiful moments as a gift to yourself and your loved ones. You will see the essence of a person and the emotion of a moment in the photo, and feel it again years later.
Savor the Beauty of Life with Photos That Move You
Marie's pictures are the perfect balance of photojournalism and portraiture. Each time I look at them I feel as if I am reliving the magic of the day, all the emotions come alive again & again.

About Marie Papp
As a performing artist and entrepreneur myself, I understand what a an amazing headshot can do. As someone who lost her mother at a young age, I know how precious family portraits are. As an artist and director, I love collaborating and creating fun, unique, beautiful photos that capture the authentic energy of a moment, a person, or a group of people.
Instinctively, I draw upon my experience in acting and improvisation to figure out how to bring out your personality, or to read the energy of a moment, and capture it in a photo.
In addition to earning a BFA in Photography from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts and being a Certified Professional Photographer with PPA (Professional Photographers of America), I have worked with and photographed a wide range of people ranging from CEOs and celebrities to public figures like President Clinton and Donald Trump.
