LET’S EMBRACE the real MOMENTS FROM YOUR best DAY

YOUR NATURAL CHEMISTRY WILL TAKE THE LEAD

MY GUIDING
VALUES

REVERENCE

Your heritage should be celebrated, and I always hold space to create a wedding day that ties both tradition and personal experience together. I have a deep respect for any and all beliefs that you want to incorporate into your day, and I’ll do my best to capture them in a way that feels valued.

AUTHENTICITY

Your photos should feel natural, not forced. I promise to capture you in your element to give you photos that embrace true emotions. And when you need a little guidance, I’ve got you.

FUN

I believe in letting loose and being playful. Focus on being silly, enjoying time with your loved ones, and just have fun. This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience and I want you to love every second.

DON’T WORRY ABOUT GETTING THE perfect PICTURE

I’M HERE TO GUIDE YOU

I know that the idea of wedding photos can be a little intimidating. I know you want to make sure you get the perfect pictures from your day. But what makes your pictures perfect isn’t the posing or the smile, it’s the genuine emotion that comes through the lens. Instead of worrying about how to act in front of the camera, I’m here to help you live in the moment and forget it’s there. Focus on your excitement, anticipation, and true love - I’ll take care of the rest. When you see your final images, not only will they look beautiful, but you’ll be able to feel those moments all over again.

I’M all ABOUT
THE EXPERIENCE

MY PHOTOS WILL TELL YOUR STORY

I’m a champion of enjoying your experience to the fullest, and I don’t expect my couples to know exactly what to do. I have a photojournalistic style, and I want you to interact naturally and focus on having fun. I’ll document every special moment without making you pose for hours on end. The finished result will be authentic and joyful photos that show the real experience of your wedding day.

SHE CAPTURED THE
most beautiful moments
OF OUR WEDDING DAY.

We were so very lucky to find Maria and her team. From our first conversation, we instantly connected and she was able to articulate the very vision we had from our photos. She was professional yet personable throughout the entire planning process, right through to the day of. Day of, she blended in seamlessly and was there to capture every moment. Most importantly, she captured the most beautiful moments of our wedding day and her photos tell the wonderful story. We highly, highly recommend Maria and her team.

I love LIVING
LIFE BEHIND
THE LENS

IT’S A WHOLE NEW PERSPECTIVE

I’ve always been drawn to the idea of creating moments in time that last forever. Looking at a photo and being transported back to that experience is a one-of-a-kind feeling. I turned to photography as a creative outlet and as a way to make my mark on the world. It’s special to watch moments happen through my viewfinder and to document such an intimate time in couples’ lives. That trust is not taken lightly, and it inspires me to make every wedding photo completely unique to you and your relationship. Living my life behind the lens fulfills me, and I'm so thankful that I get to do what I love every single day. I’ll put my whole heart into creating photos for you that feel like magic.

GET TO KNOW
ME BETTER

I’m an adventurer at heart - I love to explore and go for long drives.

I won’t survive a wedding without my LARGE (and I mean large) cup of coffee -I’m convinced 2 shots of espresso mixed with hazelnut and oat milk is the ultimate order.

After a long wedding weekend, I recharge with family time. I love taking my son out sightseeing, to visit Grandma, or to Sesame Place (the actual happiest place on Earth).

Gardening and crocheting are two of my most-loved pastimes.
