At Marika H Photography I focus not only on creating beautiful portraits but the unforgettable experience as well.  Whether you are celebrating a graduating senior, creating memories with your family or need to personalize your business with professional headshots, I know how to bring out your best.

Our work together will start a couple of weeks before your session.  During the Style and Design Consultation I will assist you with the wardrobe planning, decide on the location – a place of special beauty or significance to you, and start designing your session.  No detail is too small.  On the day of your session all you have to do is relax, smile and trust me with the process.

I believe your beautiful portraits deserve to be seen and enjoyed every day instead of being lost on a hard drive.  That’s why I collaborate with the best printers and craftsmen in the world to create the finest print products for you to treasure for a lifetime.  Whether it’s a wall portrait, a handcrafted album or an elegant portfolio box, your images will serve you as a daily reminder that you are beautiful, that you are loved.

About a week after your session we will meet for your viewing and ordering appoint.  I will guide you through the portrait selection and will help you decide on the best ways to display them at your home.  What you choose to invest in is completely up to you.

“The true value of a photo is not understood until years after it was taken.” Unknown author

“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 loved my photo session with Marika. She was very accommodating to my busy schedule and made sure I was comfortable the whole time.  She had a knack for good positions and locations in which to take photos and the pictures turned out beautifully!  The editing is also amazing.  I have never been a photogenic person, but I thought Marika’s pictures of me were great!”

Antonina headshot 200px“I needed a professional headshots for my company’s new website and my social media profiles.  I am not a huge fan of taking pictures, but I wanted to add a new, more professional look to my online presence.  Working with Marika was a great experience; she made me feel pretty comfortable and relaxed.  She was enthusiastic about finding the best angles, poses and light.  Marika was prompt, efficient and I was impressed with her creativity and passion for photography.  I couldn’t be happier with the results; the quality of the digital images I got and the service were top-notch.  I am looking forward to working with her again as my business grows.  I recommend Marika H Photography to anyone searching for a professional photographer.”

“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.”

“Marika did a great job working with our 13-year old and 11-year old.  She made them comfortable and cooperative while making the entire experience fun.  Her pictures captured their personalities.  The choice of settings, shot variety, and use of natural light and colors made the pictures genuine and vibrant.  We highly recommend Marika to anyone looking to capture photos of teens and tweens.”

“I chose Marika Hopkings photography because of her unique style and attention to detail.  We were updating our company website and hired Marika to take head shots of all of our teachers.  The pictures came out beautifully.  She was able to show the individuality of each teacher.  If you would like to see the results, please visit our website: www.VAmusiclessons.com
