        Okay, so Marica has asked me to write a testimonial on this site.  So here it goes.


        Marcia and Christopher took our pictures on Monday November 22, 2010 at Couples Tower Isle.  When we arrived at the resort, we called her to let her know that we arrived safely.  At that time, please re-confirm with her your time.  In a previous e-mail I had accidentally written that our wedding was at noon.  It was at 11am.  So here I am panicing, thinking oh my god she is not coming.  I called and they were on their way.  They arrived about 11:15, took some pics of me in my dress and then went down to see DH and take pics of him.  Since I had no interest in pics of me getting ready, I wasn't too stressed as we were the only wedding that day.


        They took pics with us for approx 2 - 2.5 hours.  My face hurt from smiling so much!  As it was just the 2 of us that was more than enough time.  As Marcia, does not book time slots, they would have stayed all day if wanted them to. 


        Working with them was a VERY pleasant experience.  They captured alot of moments that I didn't realize including the "face" I made when we sipped our champagne and I realized that mine had alcohol in it (I don't drink), and it was uppose to be non-alcoholic!


        Christopher would take off, but we soon realized that he would come up from behind us to get various angles, including walking along the seawall to get pics from behind during our ceremony.  DH called him a ninja, because one meoment he was gone, and then he would appear out of nowhere.


        We got an  EXCELLENT deal from Marcia.  As I had just gotten laid off, pricing was important, and obviously the pics had to be good.  Marica has asked me not to post the fee she charged me, but she was $1,000 less than Diana & Richard.  The package was to include 300 pics, and 2 copies of the DVD Montage.


        Well, the CD's shipped on Wednesday at lunch, and they arrived before 9am on Friday to Ontario, Canada!  We ended up getting 657 pictures!!!  Now, FH is SUPER photogenic, and well quite frankly I am super un-photogenic.  I LOVE atleast half of them!  the ones that I don't love have nothing to do with quality, it is me making weird faces/laughing, or positioning my face to emphasize my double chin!


        As for the DVD Montages, they are nice.  However, she didn't use the music that we sent her, I am not sure why.  But, since these are for our mother's we couldn't care less.


        I give Marcia and Christoper a 10/10, they were delightful to work with, made us laugh, and made us feel comfortable as we both hate getting pics taken of us.  Our photos really are far more beautiful than I thought they would be!


        I posted a wedding review, and a review of the resort on the Couples website.


        Here is a link to Marcia's site.  I am very busy right now with the holiday's and trying to figure out how to do photobooks, I will try to remember to post a link in the future.

              We have booked Macia for the 5th April. Her pics look amazing and she has got some great reviews from brides who have used her before. She has quoted me this price and package too. I like the fact that she doesnt have time limits

                For those brides who used Marcia as their photographer, did you also use her and her team as your videographer? If so how did the video come out?
