the experience

authentic experiences framed in real time

You’ve got a new friend! Whether you’re extroverted or introverted its proven that we are all more comfortable around our friends. Tell me about you two! Tell me about your future plans, your wedding vision and what it means to you, how you met or about your fur baby! I get to know my couples more then just a client/photographer relationship because I CARE! By getting to know you, making you two feel cared for from start to finish and cheer you on throughout the process, you’ll feel comfortable in front of the camera and get those moments captured that you’ll want to look back on forever. Don’t worry ,you’ll definitely get those romantic bridal photos that make you look like you should be in a magazine but let’s prioritize those once in a lifetime moments that can never be recreated. 

when you lock in this gal for your wedding, you’re gaining more then just your average wedding photographer

let's be honest

I’ve been in front of the camera a lot and definitely understand what it feels like to not feel confident there. That’s why, over the years I’ve created an experience that allows couples to be themselves and feel confident in front of the camera. You can read more about the experience here. 

01. Comfortable and effortless sessions

From booking all the way through the wedding I’m here to answer your questions, give you vendor recommendations and help you throughout the planning process whenever you need it. My couples can always rely on me to be present and guiding them throughout the months leading up to the wedding. Every couple that books with me is sent a carefully curated wedding guide full of planning tips to make sure you get the best photos possible. 

02. A reliable planning companion

It’s no secret that wedding days can start stressful for brides and grooms but that doesn’t mean your vendor team should add extra stress. My wedding day approach includes a positive, energetic and stress free attitude. While capturing moments throughout the day , I make sure my couples feel at ease by working closely with their coordinator to keep us on schedule, coordinating first looks, sneaking you drinks during your golden hour session and shouting “you look amazing!” During your bridal session.

03. An easy going,  stress free wedding day

When it comes to the wedding day …

I like to say I’m like your extra bridesmaid , fixing your dress, making sure nobody has hair ties on their wrists and making sure everyone is having a good time. Capturing someones wedding day starts with setting a relaxed and fun mood which I like to instill when I get to your venue. 
Once I’m there I believe in posing you two for some staged photos but I do prioritize capturing the moments as they happen. I will always be there to direct where to stand for the best lighting, gather up your big families for family photos and keep you two as close to your timeline as possible.

I’m along for the wedding planning ride. I’ll be sure to supply you two with a extensive vendor recommendation list to help you choose the best team, go over and make a timeline to make sure you get the best lighting for your photos , and be there to get excited about your wedding day with you two! I get really excited about what I do so you can bet I’ll be just as excited as you are for your wedding!

I’m not one of those photographers who collects a paycheck and then reaches out right before the wedding.

After the best day of your life has come and gone

TThe memories that were captured are then carefully curated and edited in great detail so you can relive your wedding day over + over!

Shadia + Chris

We are very impressed with her work and her ability to make things look magical! Our wedding photos really look like they are from a magazine. We truly think that Maya has a gift for seeing the beauty in everything. Not only is she super talented, but she has an awesome personality (professional, yet super chill) and made us comfortable being photographed. Maya was so easy going and soft about giving directions. We really felt as if she was one of our friends at the wedding. We and our guests love the pictures! Thanks a bunch Maya!

"We are so luck to have had Maya! "

Tatum + Robin

Not only did Maya do such an amazing job of capturing every moment we wanted for our engagement shoot and wedding, she was the most easy going and enjoyable photographer I have ever worked with. Maya is extremely reliable and very responsive. Her work is absolutely exceptional and moving forward I wouldn't hire anyone other than Maya to capture our special moments. I can't wait to put our wedding album together and look forward to working with Maya in the future!

"Where do I even begin? !"

Alisha + Ryan

Maya met us weeks before the ceremony with our coordinator and walked through the venue with us to preview what she would do with it. She took time to get to know my wife and I and what we were like so that she could translate that to how she approached the project. Bottom line is that she really cares about her clients and her work. There’s no pretension here. Some of the people I talked to had an off putting arrogance about their photography. She lets her work do the bragging.

"She totally outdid herself!"
