Creating photo content for burlesque promotion that has a similar look to what I have already. This most definitely did not come true! The look and feel of what was created looked nothing like anything I've done before!
The new-to-me wardrobe, the amazing hair and makeup talent that happened, the chatting with the photographer before the shoot begins. All that good stuff that happens before stepping in front of the camera.
It was such a positive experience, from start to finish. I think everyone deserves beautiful photos at least once in their lifetime. I was made completely comfortable by Marilee, and really enjoyed the hands on help with all of the pre-shoot preparation! No need to stress about makeup and hair, she's got you covered. The shoot itself is great with posing direction too which is always nice.
I cannot be specific with what my favorite part was about the experience, because the whole experience was great and it was such a pleasure to shoot will Marilee. I love her dog too. I would tell a friend that if they want to feel glam and done up and just have a fun time, set up a shoot.
I was a little nervous at first about doing a pin-up shoot, I wasn't sure if I would be able to pose as naturally as the models in Vintage Magazines, But Marilee was such a fun photography coach I was amazed at how my pictures came out! Oh so Classy!
Marilee's style and wardrobe selection was so gorgeous and classic. There was plenty of different styles to choose from. And the deluxe studio experience is a must do if you want the best quality in Pin-up glamour!
When it comes to Vintage Glamour and Pin-up, Miss Marilee works magic! what a wonderful experience I had on gorgeous photo shoot sets...Getting all dolled up was such a relaxing and fun way to welcome in my Halloween birthday this year! Flirty and 30 never looked so good! xoxo Thanks for Everything Miss Marilee!
"The concepts are always well thought out. The execution is exactly what she says and shes fast and on point! Not to mention one of the nicest people on the planet. She makes you fell so comfortable so there's no way you won't get a great photo...or 10!'
"I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your work with my shoot. I love the images and you made a small town regular girl feel so glamourous. You were amazing to work with and I so loved incorporating the story line idea you had of a diva being stranded in the desert by the plane. You are a very creative artist and I adored working with you. I hope I get the chance to do it again."
“Just did my first (ever) pinup shoot with Marilee and I was pleasantly surprised. I just had to write a review even before I see my photos! She is welcoming, encouraging and talented! When I saw the set she had prepared just from my email and idea I GASPED! It was SO cute and even better than I had imagined. The time in front of the camera was a little awkward for me, but Marilee is so good at coaching that I was able to let some of my inner pinup shine! Thank you for an awesome time and I might be addicted! ***Update*** The pictures are amazing!!!! Can't wait to surprise my boyfriend with them!”
“Miss Marilee is super amazing and very talented!! LOVED working with this lady! Even if you've never done a pinup shoot before, Marilee makes you feel relaxed and confident I highly recommend booking a shoot with her! Do it, you won't regret it xoxo”
“In 2010 I re-entered modeling. I was instantly fascinated with the pin-up culture and the ladies who were driving the community. The first photographer I wanted to work with was Marilee. It was with her and because of her that my career took off. I basically owe my success to Marilee and I will forever be grateful. xoxo”
"I thought I wouldn’t like the way I looked in the pictures because I’m so self conscious about so many things! But, Marilee made me feel comfortable and took care of everything! It was such a wonderful experience, and I love the way my photos turned out!
Marilee truly made it a fun experience! I felt so comfortable, like I was hanging out with an old friend.
This photo shoot turned out so well! I had no idea I could actually like the way I look this much! A beyond amazing experience, and I will definitely be back! So, take a chance on yourself and do this!"

“Words can't describe how all around amazing Marilee is. I've never felt so comfortable in my own skin. If you haven't shot with Marilee you must!!! Thank you a million times!”

"I have worked with Marilee Caruso on several occasions, every shoot was a fun and creative experience. Every image that we came up with together came out exactly as we had planned or just spontaneously thought of. Marilee has such an eye for composition, amazing lighting talents , and always makes me feel comfortable and look hot! She is very professional and always has input and helpful hints to make the idea always work. She is extremely easy to work with and get along with and will never settle for a mediocre image. I highly recommend her as a photographer for any style, from pin-up to high fashion, portraits to street. I look forward to continuing my work with her on future projects, they just seem to get more and more outstanding."
“She can make ANYONE look good! I won't go to anyone else.”
