Whether you’re looking for a photographer for your New Orleans wedding, one more family portrait before the kids leave the nest, or new headshots for your latest business venture, you want someone who goes above and beyond. You want someone to help you build your legacy with beautiful photos and provide you with an incredible experience.
You’ve found that at the Red M Studio.
From the moment you hire us, you become a member of the Red M Family. But don’t take our word for it:
We’re Marianne and Steve Sabrier, the couple behind the lens.
Marianne is the lead photographer and spirited redhead at The Red M Studio, while Steve is the second shooter, assistant, and all around amazing business partner.
Marianne has been a shooter and documenter for years, but her photography business was officially launched in 2011. A year later, Steve joined her, bringing invaluable skills to the studio. He sees light like a ninja and is a master of Snell’s Law (technical term for the way light bounces ... he'll tell you all about it).
You may be wondering, where did the Red M come from?
For about the first three years the business was just Marianne’s name … which no one could spell or say! (It’s pronounced Mary Ann Sah-bree-yay in case you weren’t sure yourself.) When we finally realized that all people remembered was that the logo had a Red M, the business name got changed pretty quickly.
The Red M Studio has developed a reputation for delivering over-the-top experiences in addition to the actual photos for our clients. With a keen eye for capturing moments that matter, we elevate ordinary photo sessions to spirited storytelling adventures you will be proud to share with your family and friends for years to come.
We share a passion for photography, music, food, wine, cooking and travel, though not necessarily in that order. In fact, we prefer when we can do all at the same time, especially in the company of good friends and family! That might be because we are both New Orleans natives. In fact, you might consider New Orleans a member of the Red M Family in its own right!
That’s why we’re dedicated to using our business to help those in our area. Our relationship was based on the idea that you “get back what you give” (It was on Steve’s dating profile, and that was what caught my attention!) and when we started our business, we knew we wanted to incorporate some element of giving back.
Our donations have raised over $5,000 for local schools and non-profits, though our true passion is working to eliminate hunger. We like to say that we feed people with our cameras. And it’s true - our recent fundraiser fed over 1,500 people!
Giving back to the community and helping families build their legacies through photography is a dream come true for us. Together, we provide our clients with results greater than either of us could have done alone. Our relationship is the foundation of the Red M Studio and is what lets us deliver the kind of experience only a family member could offer.
We start our sessions with handshakes, and we end with hugs. After all, that’s what family does.
