I am a greater Delaware Valley-based photographer with twelve years of photography experience.
My events range from golf outings to conferences at the Borgata in Atlantic City to natural-light settings.
I provide high-quality images and a quick turnaround. Whether it's headshots, family portraits, corporate events, or private sessions, I photograph all my clients with the same degree of passion and care.

Marikate Venuto took some photos of me for my bakery website. I had already worked with another photographer and did not get images I could use. The first thing someone said when they saw Marikate's photos was "Oh my gosh, she captured your personality perfectly in these pictures!" It was EXACTLY what I wanted and I was able to use them right away. Marikate is professional, talented and works very hard to be sure you get results that will make you very happy!
My name is Tom Reusche and I am Executive Director of the 7x24 Exchange Delaware Valley Chapter, and Marikate is the Photography Contractor we have utilized for over 10 years to create Chronicles for our Chapter Meetings. 7x24 Exchange appreciates that Marikate arrives prepared for every assignment, by visiting the site ahead of time, and reviewing the setting and lighting conditions for our events. Her preparation, equipment and skills produce photographs that capture the distinct ambiance of the settings and the enjoyment of the attendees.
One other very important aspect of her professionalism is her pleasant and engaging way with people. She makes our guests feel welcome and comfortable in front of the camera, puts them at ease, and produces photographs of people at their best, with great smiles. Additionally, she creates much more than just photographs. She couples software package skills with artistic vision and creativity, producing best-in-class event packages. Please consider her for your organization’s events.

As a realtor I attend numerous events and always need updated headshots formarketing and my listings. I had not updated my photos for 4 years. I met Marikate and felt like I met a long-time friend. She is very sweet and offered tons of professional insight like what to wear, colors and necklines to avoid and prepared me for my new headshots. We coordinated a time and location and Marikate arrived on time and ready to go. I have a very hard time staying relaxed and it shows in my facial expressions.
Marikate was very tapped into that and would tell me to relax, and give me small breaks so every photo I looked my best. She truly captured me and I love my new headshots! I have hired Marikate for additional client event photos and company events. I would absolutely recommend Marikate for any photography needs! She is the BEST!

I would highly recommend anyone searching for a family or toddler photographer to work with Marikate. She was early to make sure everything was perfect, professional, and oh-so-patient with our family. Thank you, Marikate, for being so lovely and letting us be as comfortable as can be throughout the photoshoot. She got my toddler to smile in more pictures than we have ever been able to have him smile in. We loved working with her!
