It was such an amazing experience to be photographed by Maria. She was very responsive via email in regards to any questions that I had and tried her very best to execute all of my photo requests in the time permitted. The quality of the photos surpassed my expectations, the entire family loved them. Although we were a group of 34, she made sure that everyone could be seen in the photos which meant the world to us. Highly recommended.Sep 11, 2019
Beah was wonderful and fun to work with, provided a huge array of beautiful photos, was on time, offered a great rate, and was very quick about processing and returning the photos (only a couple of days!) Great choice.Jun 21, 2019Maria Bea Photography's reply
Thank you, Christi! It was wonderful meeting you and Danny.
Maria Bea Photography was so professional! She made me feel so comfortable and taken care of. She is an excellent photographer...but beyond that she'll make you feel at home having your photo taken.Apr 9, 2019
I went into our photoshoot not knowing exactly what I wanted. Maria came in with equipment and ideas to spare. She was energetic and ready to try all sorts of creative things. She gives direction well, and is patient and optimistic when things don't go as planned. We shot both indoors and outdoors, and the photos turned out beautifully. I had a perfect experience with Maria as my photographer, and would recommend her to anyone.Jun 18, 2019
Bea has photographed my family on two occasions: for a holiday card and a baby announcement. She is extremely adept at capturing my daughter at 9 months and at 1.5 years. Every single photo allowed all of our personalities and joy to shine through. Both my husband I are extremely critical of photographs of ourselves as we have had bad experiences with photographers in the past. Bea never disappoints. She gave us more photos to choose from then I've ever been offered and all of them were so perfect, it made choosing hard! I can't recommend Bea enough. She is such a joy to work with and made us all feel completely at ease. We will definitely be using her services again!Jun 25, 2019
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My wedding photography rate is $250/hour or 8 hours for $1700. I offer two hour engagement and family sessions for $400, and one hour headshot sessions for $300.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I love getting to know you and hearing about what's important to you first, so I always start with a phone and/or an in-person meeting. On the actual day of your session, I start with simpler, posed shots to give us time to warm up and become comfortable with the camera and each other, and then I move into candids and more artistic photos.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a BA in Communication Arts with a focus in film and television. I have been working with cameras since the age of 15. In 2017, I took a film photography course to be able to shoot film in addition to digital.
