INQUIRE FOR DETAILS

At both your engagement session and wedding day, I want your experience to feel as effortless and as organic as the love you share for each other. Therefore, each wedding is approached with an editorial eye to create evocative portraits that showcase your authentic love as well as all of the beautiful details you've put so much time into planning out. By focusing on the natural emotion and beautiful light, you will be at ease knowing your story is being told through authentic emotions - featuring all of the happiness, fun, and beauty of your wedding day.

Step one begins with an inquiry to make sure I've got your date available. Once that's confirmed, we'll set up a time to meet over coffee or your drink/snack of choice. If you're out of town, no worries! We'll hang over zoom in the comfort of our own living rooms.

Sessions can take place anywhere from immediately following a proposal to just a few days before the wedding. Most people like to schedule shortly after booking to use for Save-the-dates but there is no right or wrong time for your engagement session.

- Shrishti + Yash

We had a great experience working with Maya for our engagement photoshoot!! She put us completely at ease and managed to get us to feel less "posed" which is great for awkward posers like us and sent us beautifully edited pictures quickly after the shoot. Highly recommend!!

- Aimee + Dan

We highly recommend Maya! She did a fantastic job capturing our wedding day and we couldn't be happier with our decision in working with her. Maya made us feel comfortable in front of the camera with her perfect mix of silliness, fun & professionalism. When we got our wedding photos back we were blown away to find that she captured many details from the venue, our bridal party, even down to facial expressions that we missed from the excitement of the day. Maya is a true artist and I couldn't be more pleased with my photos!

- Natalie + Dustin

If you're looking for a down to earth, easy going and talented wedding photographer look no further than Maya! She is a wonderful person with a warming heart, a kind energy that makes you feel so comfortable that you barely even realize she has a camera in her hands. She made the entire process as simple as possible from the first questionnaires we received, to the engagement to the wedding day. The photos we got back from Maya were amazing, it was like reliving the day all over again.
