hi!  i'm marlena pearl.

But you can call me Marlena (pronounced mar-lay-nuh).  I'm a pretty down-to-Earth girl.  Frequent adventures rejuvenate my soul.  I'm almost always laughing or excited about something.  My friends tell me my spirit animal is a squirrel -- though I'm not too sure why.  Maybe it has something to do with my mannerisms.

I hope to someday live in a house that's near the water and in the forest.  Nature is my main source of inspiration -- I love watching flowers bloom and leaves unfold.  I believe in love and that it wins.  I'm a hopeless romantic and a classical romantic; in love with the natural world, how it functions, and the people I love who live here.

I photograph with all of my heart because I truly love to show people how much beauty is in this world everywhere you look.  I'm also not just saying that - I really mean it.


check out my blog and instagram to get to know me better.


what marlena pearl photography is about

Natural light photography is my thing!  Creating an escape by capturing mood and feeling is the ultimate goal in my images.  I focus on obtaining a soft feminine quality with an emphasis on location and environment.  

How can we work together?

commercial work, social media marketing, brand ambassadorships, publication features, travel tourism boards, and more.

Collaboration is one of my greatest strengths and I adore photographing for magazines, creatives, and brands of all kinds.  It's a true honor to assist like-minded businesses and publications in growth, let alone working together to formulate beautiful and inspirational photos.  If you're one of these people, please don't hesitate to get in touch!
