It was such a pleasure working with MJ! I can't imagine a better photographer to have captured me and my fiance's colorful, fun engagement shoot at The Saguaro in Palm Springs. She completely understood the look and vibe we were going for and nailed it perfectly. We highly recommend entrusting MJ with capturing your most special moments!

MJ did an amazing job with our engagement. Excellent communication before, during, and after. She was ready to go when I popped the question and did an awesome job of capturing the surprise. Then we did a few photo shoots around the vineyard where MJ did everything from picking the backdrops to posing us. She even handled the editing afterward (it was pretty gray and rainy that day). We couldn’t be happier with how they came out! Thanks MJ! You rock!!

We hired MJ for our engagement photos while in town! She was very punctual, and friendly. She let us kind of lead the way and made us feel very comfortable!

I can’t recommend MJ enough - she was amazing to work with. We were in Palm Springs for only a short amount of time - she was quick to respond and work with our schedule. Her photo quality is stunning, and we’re so glad we have these memories to look back on!

MJ was a wonderful photographer for us to work with! My husband and I have worked with quite a few photographers and what sets MJ apart is the obvious passion that she brings to her work. You can tell that she has fun with what she does and subsequently, you find yourself more comfortable and genuinely happy in photos! Additionally, she is so punctual with responses! I must’ve messaged her tons of times and without hesitation, she answered so quickly. I really appreciated that especially since plans changed so many times for my shoot. Thank you again MJ!

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    When it comes to my pricing I try to be reasonable and work within my clients budget. I calculate the duration of the shoot, travel time, and extra products like: personalized photo albums and prints.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I like to gather as much information as possible by asking questions to get a better idea of your plans and how I can execute your vision. It's important for me to establish an open line of communication in order to give you everything that you want through my lens. Team work makes the dream work!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Before I started pursuing photography as a career path, I took some classes at the Riverside Community College. And then I went to YouTube University lol!!! This platform is where I learned to master the art of photography and built my editing skills. With anything, you have to keep growing and learning so I strive to never stop my education.
