"Having Marina take photos for me really had two purposes: The first was that I wanted some creative photos for my website. And the second is that I wanted to have an excuse to hang out with her again.
Not only are the images she captured well beyond anything I could have imagined, but Marina made the act of taking them so much fun. She turned a simple photo shoot into a rewarding creative and collaborative process. Simply put, Marina is awesome."
