I’m Maya! I’m a Wedding photographer based in Orange County and the Bay Area. I’ve been shooting weddings full time for 7 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.
I’m currently living in San Clemente CA with my fiancé and golden retriever puppy Comet. I split my time between Southern California and the Bay Area (No travel fees woot woot!) I’m finding out what it’s like to be on the other side of things while planning my own wedding which has been so fun. I love getting to relate to my couples even more now and chat all things wedding advice with you all. I live for a good beach day with lots of sunshine , Diet Coke and burritos. I never turn down a good margarita and time to make new memories with the people I love. I’m the friend that’s always taking my phone out to show people photos of past memories because I’ve always had such an obsession with nostalgia and reminiscing on the good times in life. My purpose in life is to bring that to you whether its for your engagements, wedding or maternity photos. I can’t wait to document it all and get to know you two along the way!
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 an epic party so having photos to reminisce on will be the thing you hold onto the most out of your wedding day other then your love ,of course. I’m here for those excited getting ready moments, teary eyed first looks, emotional ceremonies and all the fun times at the reception that can never be recreated. Whether you’re planing a local Orange County wedding, Bay Area wedding or a destination wedding, I want to be there and capture all your freaking awesome memories!
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
