HEY YOU! I'M MARIA

Horse enthusiast, mom, photographer and dreamer. If you're looking for an easy going and compassionate bff with a camera, look no further - I'm your gal!

I love craft beer, junk food and football. Darks, sours or fruits are my top three and yes, I’m a forever Lions fan, no matter how many times they lose. I blame my dad. :) I love books and my collection has outgrown my two massive bookcases...

"Maria is the most supportive, talented, unobtrusive, and lovely photographer- who also happens to take the most amazing photos!! We will treasure her photos of our wedding and engagement forever. She definitely put us at ease and our guests loved her too! The depth of her knowledge and her wonderful personality make her a dream to work with. We can't thank Maria enough, we definitely found a photographer for all of our future life celebrations!"

"Maria is a wonderful photographer. She is very professional and makes you feel at ease with taking photos. It was very nice to not feel so nervous and be able to just relax taking photos. She has a wonderful eye when it comes to getting the right photo and wonderful places to take them at. I will use her for future family photos down the road! Maria is definitely a 5 star in my book!"

"Maria made us feel super comfortable and helped us out A LOT. Fast forwarding; Covid turned our plans upside down and Maria was very generous to give us her available days for 2021. Everything in our plans had changed for the venue but Maria was able to make it out to my parents house for our wedding. I will say that as soon as she walked through the door and I heard her voice it was very relieving. Almost like a calm in the chaos that was happening around me. I could not have imagined anyone else shooting my wedding other than Maria. She is the most kind, generous, understanding person."
