Hired Maria Lozano out of state for a simple portrait session for our Alumni magazine. She was great at getting back to my emails right away.Feb 15, 2019Verified
Wedding and Event Photography
Maria was AMAZING. She responded to all my questions and requests no matter the time of day or NIGHT, very professional and reassuring. On the day of our wedding she arrived early and was very patient even when circumstances got us started a little late. She was very personable, and patient with us and the photos I’ve seen are breathtakingly beautiful. If you want an affordable, professional, down to earth, knowledgeable, AMAZING photographer look no further. I will definitely be using her for all my photography needs in the future.Nov 12, 2018Verified
Maria is an absolutely fantastic photographer and professional to work with! She has great artistic work and is very affordable!! We hired her to capture our San Diego wedding and I am so glad we found her! Our wedding wouldn't have been the same without Maria. Her personality and passion is what sets her above the rest. She showed up and stayed all day until all the photos we asked for were done, in the same budget we originally agreed upon. THANKS MARIA!!!!!May 17, 2016Verified
Maria is so sweet and works closely with you to make sure that you get the shots you want. She did our engagement photos and will being photographing our wedding as well.Jan 29, 2016Verified
Maria went beyond helping us capture a very special moment in our lives, she helped pick the exact spot, the manner in which it happened and brought the champagne for afterwards. My birthday surprise to my girlfriend was a trip to San Diego. Unbeknownst to her I was planning my wedding proposal for that trip. We had never been to San Diego before and Maria went out of her way to help choose the best location for the proposal (A particular spot on Sunset Cliffs). I wanted to capture this moment with a professional photographer but I also wanted it to be a surprise. Maria was willing to act as if she was at the spot taking photos to build her own portfolio and if we were willing to be captured in a few. After some initial pictures she had my now fiancé turn toward the water where I was able to get down on my knee and Maria prompted her to turn back around. It was perfect!! In addition to all that she went the extra mile and bought a bottle of champagne (with her own money) for afterward with cups that said 'She Said...' 'Yes'. That was never in the plan she just did it! The pictures turned out amazing. My fiancé was(is) in shock and was very surprised. Couldn't have asked for a better result. So in conclusion if you want a engagement planner, actress, professional photographer, and all around great person I highly recommend Maria Lozano.Nov 24, 2015Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Lets talk... Like I said... I can negotiate. Although I do have a starting base.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to get to know my clients on personal friendly basis. I believe when you can finally get to a comfortable standpoint trust is developed and shooting process ends up being more fun than you thought.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I do take classes here and their once in awhile to keep up to speed with todays technology and style. Although everyone has their own style, you always want to tweak things to make it your own. Your photos reflect your personality.
