Born in the Philippines, Marianne grew up with a loving, supportive family encouraging her creativity and natural talent. She went on to study at the prestigious De La Salle University Manila, where she received a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science as well as an MBA. But it was not until 2002, when she relocated to the United States and was exposed to all the opportunities and new ideas within this wonderful culture, that Lozano realized she wanted to become a professional photographer. Here, she studied at the nationally respected commercial photography program at Santa Monica College, and since then has built a name and reputation within this exciting field.
Marianne feels fortunate to work with an elite group of clients, event planners and agents, booking local and international assignments throughout the year. She is regularly featured in noteworthy publications including Ceremony magazine, California Wedding Day, and Grace Ormonde Wedding Style.
An avid traveler and adventurer, Marianne's most recent photographs include trips through Italy, Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand and a trek to the Himalayas. These unique experiences continue to develop her creative eye and give her a broader perspective on the world and relationships. Her well-traveled viewpoint and natural talent bring still images to life by telling a story without words.
