Your wedding is going to be one of the most unforgetable moments in your life. Things are going to happen so quickly and there are many things that you may even miss. That is why my job is so important...I'm going to do my best to capture those moments so that you can relive your wedding day slowly and beautifully through photographs.

My name is Marquel Forbes and I'm a wedding photographer in the DMV area. My husband Paul and I Iive in Loudoun County. When I'm not shooting or editing, you can find me glued to the television watching Queen Sugar, Greenleaf or The Resident with a bag of kettle corn popcorn…yes, I’m addicted to it! You may also find me at one of the many beautiful wineries that surround us here in Loudoun…I love to wine down when time allows!!! 

My favorite quote..."A day without wine is like...Just kidding, I have no idea."

Weddings

Engagement photos are perfect for save-the-dates, invitations and your wedding website. My brides also display them at their wedding reception...it makes me tear up every time that happens!

Engagement shoots are important because it gives us the opportunity to "practice" posing before your wedding day. We can assist you with choosing the best location, attire and any other questions you may have prior to your shoot.

Marquel was the best vendor I had by far! She went above and beyond to capture every moment. She is a true talent and worth every penny I spent and then some!

Marquel was the best vendor I had by far! She went above and beyond to capture every moment. She was able to give me a sneak peek of some of her photos shortly after the wedding and I was in awe at her ability to capture the feel of the day in just a few photos. She was extremely professional. We met up in person about a month out to talk about what to expect on the big day. She came to the rehearsal to map out the venue and meet the wedding party. The bridal party had to rush on the day of the wedding due to unforeseen issues with transportation and she managed to capture wonderful pictures, even under the short time she was given. She is a true talent and worth every penny I spent and then some! I will be using her in the future, and I encourage you to do the same! Thank you so much, Marquel!
