” Marika took my daughter Mackenzie’s senior pictures.  I cannot say enough about what a positive and wonderful experience this was for my daughter.  Marika met with Mackenzie several times before the day of her photo shoot.  Not only did this aid Mackenzie in selecting outfits and locations, it gave them the opportunity to get to know each other, which made Mackenzie much more comfortable during her session.  On the day of the session, Mackenzie felt like a movie star or professional model.  Marika’s team was incredibly supportive and encouraging.  When I viewed the photos I was amazed.  Marika managed to capture the beauty that I see in my daughter.  Marika is both a creative and skilled photographer.  I cannot wait to have her take my younger daughter’s photos. “

Marika did an amazing job with the headshots she took for my professional portfolio.  I was looking for someone who could make something traditional and formal look fresh and unique.  It was truly a pleasure working with Marika, because she was very professional, knowledgeable, and nice throughout the entire process.  She took into consideration all of my preferences and concerns and went an extra mile to make sure that I like how the photos come out.  Marika did an awesome job, and I really couldn’t be happier!

” I took my senior photos with Marika H Photography and my experience was fantastic!  Marika is incredible at what she does and has top notch equipment to match her skill level.  In addition to knowing the perfect areas for specific pictures, she also knew exactly how to position my body and what color schemes worked for the picture to be the best it could be.  Marika was also prepared for any situation, having a portable cover so I could change clothes and a reflector for the times there wasn’t enough light.  She wasn’t only professional, but also couldn’t have been friendlier throughout the photoshoot and made me feel comfortable even though I don’t usually like having my picture taken.  I couldn’t have asked for a better senior photoshoot and I urge anyone looking for a photographer to hire Marika, she’s amazing! “

” Marika H is a wonderful addition to the professional photography scene in Williamsburg and Hampton Roads.  She first did family portraits for us, and we were so pleased we had her do individual portraits of our teen girls and headshots for me.  She is such a pleasure to work with and does super work.  I’m loving my headshots, including my portrait pic and many others. “
