Well hello!

I’m Marie…

…and I’m the owner of Marie Pham Photography. My studio was established in 2007 in Vancouver Washington, but I work within the entire Portland metro area. I specialize in senior pictures, family photography, and business photos/headshots. I also work with schools and sports teams, and book a limited number of weddings each year. 

As a portrait photographer, it is my goal to capture the emotion, energy, and relationships of my clients in an authentic way.  My style is fresh and upbeat with bright colors and clean post-processing.  I want to create portraits that will look wonderful today, and twenty years from now. 

I also want to make all my clients look GOOD! I know so many people feel super awkward being photographed, and are often unhappy with how they look in photos…I’m one of them! So I do everything I can to help you feel prepared before you session, guide you in flattering, natural poses at the shoot, and apply beautiful post-processing on your final images.

Lastly, a little personal information about me: I have lived in Vancouver nearly all my life, and graduated from Washington State University (go Cougs!)  I have a wonderful 16-year-old daughter, two dogs, and a rescue bunny…all of them are super cute and all of them are sick of me sticking my camera in their faces!  I love being outdoors, traveling to new places, the Beatles, vegetarian cooking, and relaxing with a good book. I can’t wait to get to know you!

Think we’d work well together? Get in touch!

Meet my assistant Bethany

…who also happens to be my daughter and favorite person in the whole world! You’ll probably meet Bethany at your session; she comes with me to most senior and headshot shoots to assist with lighting. You’ll have her and her mad reflector skills to thank for the gorgeous glow you’ll have in your images! Bethany goes to Mountain View High School, plays varsity volleyball, tennis, and is involved in several leadership and volunteer organizations.
