Lens + Luma
My name is Marc & I'm a Minneapolis-based photographer. I approach photography as an art form. Lens + Luma is a wedding & portraiture service yes, but I want it to be different from other offerings in the Minneapolis area. My aesthetic is unique, vintage-inspired & a bit conceptual - it's not for everyone, but those who love it, really love it. I work hard to design our shoot - to consider the colors, to suggest appropriate hair & make-up designers, to really give a sense of my subjects through the photos & find the perfect locations. When you work with me, you're getting a photographer & creative direction. My work could be described as mixture of dreamlike portraiture with a blend of photojournalism to capture candid expressions & moments. My background is extensive and diverse. I was educated at the University of Chicago and earned my MFA from Brown University (Providence, RI), studying digital media. For the past ten years I've worked in photography, theater, film and electronic music. I love working with ideas to create an aesthetic around a photoshoot. I'm inspired by a lot of things - vintage cars, 1950s melodramas, apple orchards, Fuji films, Hasselblad cameras, Steven Meisel, Mario Testino, Annie Leibovitz, underground fashion, Technicolor films from the 1960s, ballet dancers, the quirky and unusual, and the list goes on. I hope you'll choose me for your wedding, engagement & portraiture needs.
