"Words can't even describe how happy we are with not just the photos we received...but the entire experience. Maria is so much fun to work with, she makes sure she understands what is important to you (what style are you going for? do you have any special family heirlooms you want in pictures? ) and delivers. The greatest thing about her pictures (in my opinion) is that she captures raw emotion throughout the entire day. So many people have told me (so it's not just me being biased!) that our pictures do an amazing job of capturing who we are as a couple...and Maria has an amazing gift for doing that. It's not fake or posed, it's real. If you want to remember your wedding day and all the joy it brought you...get Maria as your photographer. And also, she's just super fun to be around and you'll want to be her friend. Guaranteed."
"Simply put Maria was beyond amazing. I was a pretty nervous bride who does not really like being in the spotlight. I was very nervous about taking photos because of how shy I am but Maria made everything very natural and easy! I LOVED her style of capturing real moments, not creating tons of poses (but she did help us pose when needed :) ). She was very fast and efficient the whole day and up to that point. She acted as so much more than a photographer as well. Without her I would have had no idea how to create such an efficient wedding day schedule. She acted as a friend and was a huge help all the way through the wedding. She played a huge role in everything going so smoothly the day of the wedding despite the fact that she was so behind the scenes. She made us feel incredibly comfortable and I could not recommend anyone more highly than her. She is willing to work with packages which made it affordable for us and I could not be happier to spend every penny that we did. She was an absolute blessing and so fun to work with."
“Honestly – Maria was amazing. The level of care she takes in the prep work – from setting up meetings, touching base, reviewing what you are looking for in particular and what you want out of the pictures, seeing what she can do to customize your experience – it’s outstanding. On top of that, her actual style of interacting during the event is awesome. She is very low key so that the process isn’t forced or strained – you don’t end up with canned shots. They’re all incredibly natural and intimate. And the finished result was everything I hoped my wedding pictures would be…She earned all the praise I can give her.
“We had a very small out-of-town wedding and Maria was wonderful in working with us to create a package that made sense for our wedding… I hadn’t met Maria in person before the day of the wedding, but very quickly knew we were in good hands! She was professional and good with direction during the portrait time, but also very inconspicuous in her work during the ceremony and while getting candids. I never once felt badgered or like I couldn’t wait for her to leave. Even my husband was impressed and he wasn’t sure he wanted to do the whole photographer thing at all! She was great in interacting with my family made everyone feel comfortable. And the photos! The pictures captured the day beautifully and I’m very thankful for the many tiny moments that she managed to freeze in time…”
