Ansel Adams once said, "You don't make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved."
I love what I do. My name is Marcia and welcome to United Elite Photography! I am an award winning professional photographer serving the New Jersey/Philadelphia area and owner/photographer at UEP. United Elite Photography has a team of experienced professionals that look forward to capturing your treasured moments on your special day. We believe that smiles are contagious and capturing yours would be our pleasure.
My son, Noah, is the main reason for the smile on my face everyday. He is my inspiration for pursuing my love for storytelling through my photographs, and I love him worth every star in the sky. Love stories have always been my favorite and I mostly enjoy seeing and capturing the love and energy between two soul mates. Natural reactions are my favorite to capture as I believe it really shows your personalities the best. I have a “nac” for getting my subject’s natural reaction as opposed to uncomfortable please stand there and smile photos. I've been shooting ever since I received my first camera in high school 14 years ago with people as my main subjects. I have a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration at Rutgers University. I also annually donate a percentage of print sales to the local animal shelters, because well, I love animals and grew up on a farm.
Photography has been an exhilarating career that has provided many great opportunities for me. I've been able to shoot everything from weddings, engagements, models, kids, family portraits, and underwater. Before I did wedding photography full time I was the photographer for the local YMCAs and won a promotional add contest for Prevention Plus of Burlington County. They featured a shot I took of the Blood Moon in USA Today, on ViewBug my image Ranked in the Top 10 class for Image of the Year, and I was published in Modern Weddings blog/magazine. I’ve also won Wedding Wire’s 2018 and 2019 Couples Choice Award and won The Knot’s Award for 2019 Best of Weddings.
I love meeting new people and sharing a small piece of their life story through my photographs. I also love getting to know my clients on a personal level, and use my skills as a visual storyteller to artistically illustrate the events of your day. My team and I create stunning images that show you in your best light, catered just for you. Your experience is our number one priority and our goal is to always exceed your expectations. Please tell me what you are looking to get out of our session together and we will collaboratively make it happen.
