At Menagerie Photography, We don't just make pictures... We make Art - We make Memories




What Makes Our Photography Different

Welcome!  My name is Marilyn Riel and I want to share with you an opportunity to explore, experience and be excited.

Having your picture taken should be an opportunity to explore ideas, and have a great time.  When the shoot is over, I want you to be excited about your images and to feel great about yourself and the experience.  I personally remember dreading the day school pictures were taken and going to get the family photo for the holidays.  That is not how I want you to feel when you work with us. I want the process to be an experience you will enjoy, the images to be more than just pictures. I treat every client as an individual and every image as a special piece of art.

Here at Menagerie Photography we believe life is enhanced by the memories we have and what better way to keep these memories alive than through photography.  We would love to capture these moments of time and present them to you to keep and to share.

Menagerie Photography’s eastern CT location makes our studio available for not only Connecticut but also Rhode Island & Massachusetts so our clients won’t need to plan for additional travel charges and we’re only a few hours from New York. Boudoir, Glamour and Headshot photography locations we commonly serve include Warwick, Jamestown and Westerly RI, Essex, Stonington & Mystic CT, and Shrewsbury, Sutton & Grafton MA. No matter where you’re coming from, we’ll make it worth the trip.
