Quirky, fun, and down to earth, Michelle + Taylor opted to celebrate their wedding close to home at beautiful Rosewood Events in Petaluma, California.

My husband & I eloped and found Maya and immediately hired her. Everything was a bit of a whim so I was a bit nervous to hire a photographer I'd never met on such short notice, but the moment we met Maya that all changed. We have never been professionally photographed and Maya did an incredible job at making everything feel easy & comfortable. Once we got our photos back we were so thrilled to see how candid & effortless our poses looked. For never being photographed, both my husband & I couldn't be happier.

Maya is by far the best photographer I have worked with! From the start Maya was relaxed and made us feel comfortable from the start. She provided excellent guidance which made me feel reassured during the chaos of wedding planning! Her communication and responsiveness never waivered. The day of the wedding she helped with all transitions to keep us on track with the timeline we set beforehand to capture everything I wanted without making us feel pressured or rushed, ever.

Maya did an incredible job shooting my wedding day. She is an excellent communicator, planner, and photographer. She is so down to earth, easy to work with and has a gift to make you feel comfortable throughout the event. She was receptive to our requests & opinions on the different shots we had in mind. Maya also delivered our wedding photos quicker than the original time frame estimate, which I was grateful for!

I'm passionate about telling your unique love story in an authentic and editorial way. I want to document the day as it unfolds naturally, capturing the genuine love, laughter, and happiness during the day. While there will be some moderate posing, what I really want is to focus on the emotion. The light, the laughter, the feelings of the day. Raw and honest, the candid approach allows me to capture the genuine and organic moments rather than stiff and posed.
