Introduction: Giving you an amazing, stress-free experience is just as important to me as taking photos you'll want to frame on your wall. My years of experience have taught me that the best way to keep you smiling in photos is to keep you LAUGHING - and I'm pretty funny so we got this :) I absolutely love what I do. My goal is to photograph all events and stories in a clean, beautiful, and authentic way. A photojournalist at heart, I will walk you through posing but will ALWAYS capture your candid, magic moments.

Wedding and Event Photography

My wife and I chose Maria to shoot our wedding and we were BLOWN AWAY! The amount of dedication she put into capturing our big day is something we’re both grateful for. If I ever need a photographer again I’m definitely going to come back to Maria.

Hiring Maria to do our wedding photography was hands down and without a doubt the single best decision we made in regards to our wedding! Working with her was an absolute joy, and the pictures she provided are nothing short of fantastic. Working with her was easy and fun, and we couldn't be happier with the results!

You won’t be disappointed with her work! I would like everybody to know how wonderful Maria is as A photographer. She took our engagement pics and we loved them. Also she caught the best moments in our wedding day! My husband and I want to thank her for being such as a great support in helping us to get the best moments of our very busy but blessed day!

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

    Yes, I have a full wedding package price list, that I send clients who inquire. I also have an hourly rate for events, depending on the scale of the event.

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

    Typically, after I quote my clients, they reply with any questions. We work out the details via phone or email (whichever makes my clients more comfortable). For weddings, I will always schedule a meeting my couples, to make sure we vibe well and make a solid plan for our day together.

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

    I graduated Temple University with a degree in photojournalism, and have worked full-time as a staff photographer for several Philadelphia weekly newspapers for five years. I've shot with several Philadelphia-based studios, and expanded to weddings a few years ago. Since going full-time with my wedding, event, and commercial photography business, I've remained active in the Philadelphia photography scene by staying connected and teaming up on projects with other studios.
