We had a small wedding on the Airforce Base at the McGuire Chapel. Mariah did an amazing job with our wedding photos. She was also very professional and replied quickly when we had questions.

We had a wonderful experience working with Mariah for our sons christening! From our first messages, she was extremely responsive & professional! On event day, she went above & beyond to ensure we were happy with our photos & that our son was looking at the camera in every shot, it was quite impressive! We would most definitely work with Mariah again & look forward to seeing the rest of our photos soon!

I absolutely loved working with Mariah! Upon arrival, she demonstrated professionalism and flexibility when scoping out the location for our photos. Her interactions with our little ones were always gentle and she was extremely patient with them throughout the shoot. My husband and I cannot wait to see the photos that she was able to capture! I 100% recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer!

Mariah did a wonderful job photographing my two teenage daughters wearing kimonos in our backyard for a Japanese “coming of age” event. She has a great eye for beautiful shots. My daughters were nervous at first, but Mariah immediately made them feel comfortable. They loved the photos and we all know how hard it is to please teenagers! Mariah was punctual, friendly and professional. She was receptive to suggestions and requests. From the first time I contacted her, she was easy to reach and responded in a timely manner whenever I had questions. Overall, it was a lovely experience working with Mariah and I would consider her to photograph future special occasions!

FAQs

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

    It’s all about you. When taking on a new client, my first question is always, “what is the ideal result that will come from this shoot?” Talking through your vision before the shoot even starts is the best way to set up for client satisfaction. Your comfortability is key!

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    I’ve always been behind the camera trying to freeze moments, always had a natural vision for capturing things I just couldn’t help but hold onto. In High School I got my first real professional grade camera and haven’t put it down since. This is where my passion stands.

  • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

    If you’re hesitant or not sure about posing or being in front of the camera, that is totally normal! I encourage you to ask your photographer questions and explore what types of suggestions/ques you’re comfortable with. If you don’t vibe with your photographer, your experience shooting with them will feel forced. It’s all about facilitating an organic safe place for clients, so ask your photographer questions that will make your experience as comfortable as possible :)
