Marcus & Dilano | Behind the lens

Marcus & Dilano are based in Columbia, Maryland and we specialize in Portrait, Event, and Wedding photography.

Our mission is to provide memorable photographs that show natural emotion. Our photography style consists of a combination of artistic photojournalism and traditional portraits which are tailored to our clients needs and expectations. We make every attempt to capture special moments by photographing both the details and the big picture.  

 

Portraiture

 

 

There is nothing like the feeling knowing that we have made a customer smile when we deliver their photographs to them.   Families need photographs to capture the special moments of their lives.  While nearly everyone has a camera for snapshots, people need professional quality photos when they will be shown to an important audience, and when people want to be seen in the best light.  We approach portraiture with a primary focus on capturing you in natural settings and poses to create a beautiful portrait that you will be proud to frame in your home.  

 

 

Weddings

We strive to capture the complete story of every wedding we photograph and infuse a bit of fashion - inspired portraiture into our photo wedding day coverage.  What we love the most about photography is capturing the love and connection between couples and their friends and family.  We also believe that every wedding should be tailored to the bride and grooms needs.  Yes we do have prices on our site but that is just to give you a general idea of our rates and items can be added and removed from each available package.   We would love to meet with you and discuss your wedding photography needs.  Our style is relaxed and low-key. We want our photos to look natural and beautiful.  We do our best to stay out of the way and keep watch for any little moment that speaks to the magic and love of the day. We strive to capture moments that burst with joy and energy. We sit with every couple and learn how they want to remember their wedding and focus on the subjects that matter most to them.  We prefer to use natural light as often as I can to keep your photos as pure and vibrant as they can be. Although we strongly suggest you get any extra prints or enlargements done at a professional lab, we do not hold your digital files for ransom. You will have complete freedom with your high-resolution digital files which you will receive within weeks of your wedding. The files print beautifully up to poster size and make sharing and printing your photography simple and hassle free.  Most importantly we want to create images that we be treasured not only by you but by your loved ones!  You may not look at your wedding photographs but maybe once a year but when you do we truly hope that you will look at them you smile.
