Maria did an amazing job with our engagement photos. My fiancé and I were both very nervous (we hate pictures), but Maria made everything so easy and fun. We also were thrilled with the photos. She has a great eye for lighting and backdrop, and so many of the photos turned out beautiful. I can’t wait for her to shoot our wedding next year.

Maria was professional, kind, and a great photographer. She was diligent in communication and promptly rescheduled when it was pouring rain and expected to continue. Additionally, she was will to adjust locations after we did a bit of scouting beforehand and realized our original location wouldn’t get us the shots needed. She also kindly directed without being overbearing and provided an exceptional final product. We couldn’t be happier.

Fanatic job! Maria was a joy to work with. She was friendly and had a good eye for lighting and what would look good in photographs. The images of our family turned out beautiful and were exactly what I pictured! We will definitely reach out to her again in the future!

Maria did our maternity photo shoot. As a person who is a little camera-shy adding the vulnerable state of pregnancy (weight gain, lack of sleep), I was really anxious for this shoot. From the moment we connected Maria took charge of the process. She suggested a location & date/time. When we arrived to the shoot she immediately took charge of direction telling us where to look, how to position our bodies etc. She provided 162 photos so we have more than enough to find our winners! The quality of the photos are beautiful. Thanks Maria!

What a wonderful human! We had such a beautiful wedding and we’re happy Maria worked with us. My husband does not like to pose for photos but she made us both feel so comfortable. We got eloped on top of a hill over looking the Gorge. It was FREEZING rain, wind, just awful conditions but holy smokes! Maria never complained, came prepared, and even brought a spare blanket for our pup who was frozen solid at the end of our ceremony. She’s such a trooper- a real professional! A real pleasure to work with. Would highly recommend!!

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

    Always ask me if you want a special deal! I'm pretty flexible and I sincerely want you to get the best photos in your life

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

    I believe that the best pictures can be done while people are moving, not just standing in front of the camera. And I make it happen! The best smiles, the brightest eyes, ​and the most natural postures - this is what I'm looking for for you

    I've been in photography for 10 years, In 2014 I 've graduated and got a bachelor degree in photography. 2015,2016 attended art courses, light manipulating courses, and retouching class I was lucky enough to work in Italy, Russia, Hungary, France, Britain, ​and Spain, this kind of experience allows me to match customer's needs better and faster
