What Our Clients Are Saying...

“What more can I say? Lesley is awesome! I can’t think of a better word to describe her and the work she does. She shot our wedding this summer at a ranch near Marfa, TX. From start to finish, her passion for our day was beyond expectation. Despite a storm rolling through, she and her amazing sidekick Junie were there for every moment, rolling with whatever challenge came their way. We couldn’t be more pleased with the results of our photographs. We would recommend her for any event that is out of the ordinary because with Lesley, you get nothing but extraordinary.

“Marfalite Studios produces the best wedding images I have come across. They are very easy to work with and go above and beyond to accommodate their clients. The fact that they are based in Marfa gives them an edge over other photographers you could bring out as they understand our unique landscape and lighting conditions. Why bring sand to the beach? The best are already here! Even our guests from all over Texas agree that these are the best wedding photos they have ever seen.
-John & Lauren”
“I did my research for a wedding photographer and when I approached Lesley I did not have a back up plan. I had spent time comparing a number of photographers – but when I saw her work, there was just no comparison, Lesley is clearly in another league. I can see drama, beauty, perspective and depth in her photographs.
I am thrilled with our wedding photos! In fact, they are perfect. Thank you Lesley and Junie!
