As a teenager in the early eighties, Merri left her small town of Adamsville, RI for New York City as a finalist in a national modeling contest. After winning and being photographed by world famous Richard Avedon, she started modeling in New York City. During that time, she became more fascinated with what the photographers and assistants were doing behind the camera than with modeling itself. Soon she started shooting documentary photos on the streets of New York, which led her to take up her studies in photography at Pratt Institute, where she earned her BFA.
After graduating from Pratt, Merri became focused on portraiture, especially the documenting of musicians and artists for magazines and record companies. Her clients include the record companies Warner Brothers, Maverick, Mercury, Verve, and Columbia Records, as well as Rolling Stone and Entertainment Weekly magazines, among many others. She has over seventy album covers to her name. She has also had a book published, "A Wished-for Song, Portrait of Jeff Buckley," which includes 360 photos and interviews she conducted.

"In my 15 years of experience shooting album covers and editorial magazine work, I believe it has given me a unique perspective on wedding photography. I love both the candid documentary aspects of wedding work as well as having the opportunity to work with the bride and groom to shoot beautiful portraits. My idea when developing Merri Weddings was to approach an event with a photojournalist’s eye, the way I would shoot a job for a magazine. At Merri Weddings I will strive to help make your day as stress-free as possible. From our initial meeting to the completion of your job, I will do my best to help make your wedding experience fun!"
