I’m Maya! I’m a Wedding photographer based in San Diego, California. I’ve been shooting weddings full time for 9 years now and couldn’t imagine doing anything else! I have the time of my life documenting couples from their proposals, to engagements , weddings and maternity photos. I’m super passionate about photographing couples authentically and delivering a gallery full of photos that represents them + their relationship. My goal is to give you photos that you can relive the best times of your lives together and feel all the feels all over again! I’m also a huge travel addict so its been fun to combine my love for photography and traveling by doing destination weddings all around the world.
My husband and I just bought our first home in Fallbrook, California, a small town in North San Diego County. Together we own the cutest golden retriever, comet and our crazy cat, Smokey. When I'm not out shooting weddings, you find me working out, doing something outside , at brunch with my husband or just sitting around our new home.
On the daily you can find me rocking out to Queen with my golden retriever, comet or watching dramatic reality tv like Vanderpump rules. I'm a lover of a cold diet coke on a hot day, Mexican food, hiking, vegan donuts, hats, all things boho and waking up at the crack of dawn to have the gym all to myself. Above all else , traveling is what sets my soul on fire! From weekend road trips blasting my favorite music to that feeling of pure excitement I get when the plane takes off and I know an amazing adventure is ahead. Getting to combine wedding photography and traveling has been a dream come true so if you are planning a destination wedding, I’m so there!
It won’t be everyday that you fill a venue or space with all your favorite people for the best day of your life. Creating timeless photos and capturing those once in a lifetime moments is what it's all about. Every hug with your grandparents, tear running down your cheek, smile, hand hold ...I want you to have that to look back on. Remember this special time in your lives together with creative imagery, attention to emotion and timeless photos you can relive for years and years.
There are a lot of photographers nowadays so thank you for your interest in my work. I’m dedicated to giving my couples 150% so I only take on a limited amount of weddings a year to ensure they are met with a great experience, fast response times, timeline structure, photo outfit help, location scouting, and lots of quality time editing your photos to give you the best images that you deserve. I also spend a lot of time getting to know you both so you feel comfortable in front of the camera and so that I can photograph you two authentically. Your wedding will be met with a laid back and stress free approach so you two stay calm, enjoy your day and are present with all your favorite people. Your job is to create the memories on your wedding day and mine is to capture them all as they unfold
