I'm Marianne! I am a wife to my best friend, mommy to four gorgeous lil ladies, forensic file rerun watcher, and I deeply love people and Jesus. I am the lead photographer at Marianne Lucas Photography & Cinematography. I am not the typical photographer who was always carrying around a camera as a child. For me, photography just happened. My dad gave me his camera for Christmas one year and I was instantly hooked & intrigued. I have always had a special love for pictures. I have shoe boxes of pictures from when I was growing up as a teen. I guess you could say that it found me.

 From the beginning, my goal was to show people how beautiful they are. I want my photos to evoke beauty and joy. My style is light and airy with an elegant and classic feel. I love to incorporate movement and laughter so we can create beautiful authentic expressions. I want to tell stories. I want you look at my images and feel something. Connection is very important to me, I feel in order to capture the real you, I need to get to know you first. I want to become your friend and give you an incredible wedding experience, not just take pretty pictures. I would consider it an honor to document your season of love, growth and new beginnings. Oh and I do hug everyone!! So you have been warned. Overall, I am a pretty happy and upbeat person. I feel that life is a gift, and it's more than amazing.

I LOVE my family, I LOVE my job, I LOVE my clients, God is good and I am so blessed.



our travels









I live with four girls of various ages and let me tell you something… I love them all. My lovable wife and four gorgeous daughters are the apple of my eye. There is never a dull moment for me because I also divide my attention with our dog Rocky. I rescued him two years ago, and he is a German Shepard mix. I enjoy training him because he is really smart. I love nature and the outdoors.

My favorite sport is basketball, and I love biking on the Kern river valley bike trail. Whenever possible we camp with our sibling and parents. I was born in Mexico City, and I'm a Veteran of this amazing country. After serving my term I veered into many different business ventures with an entrepreneurial spirit. Cinematography has been my favorite of all because I love capturing film. I love the fact that I can capture special moments that can be shared with future generations. I really enjoy the legacy of the grandparents that started it all, and the interaction they have with each other. It’s truly an honor to witness and capture the love between everyone on such a momentous day.

I'm lucky to do what I do full time with my best friend by my side.
