Hi, I’m Maria

And I've been photographing people in love for a long time.

My desire is to serve you with an open heart.

I always strive to capture the day how it happened: the love, the laughter and the tears. I want you to look back at your wedding images for decades to come with joy and pride.

I offer couples both years of experience as well as formal training in documentary style photography. I am here to serve all couples without discrimination. I love learning about new cultures and customs and always take special care to respect traditions different from my own.

Hi. My name is Maria and I’m a wedding photographer based in Portland, Oregon. I’ve documented hundreds of couples’ love stories over the past 11 years, traveling all over the United States and beyond, and it has been one of the biggest honors of my life. I received my degree in photojournalism in 2010 and chose to pursue documenting love instead of local and world news events, but my background in photojournalism greatly guides how I approach my duty as a wedding photographer.

I strive to be there for real couples from all walks of life.

My mission is to create a welcoming space for every religion, race, culture, gender, age and size, for those planning big weddings or small, for the do-it-yourselfers and the master planners, the quiet and the outgoing, the camera shy and the naturally photogenic. If you feel drawn to or touched by my photography, I want to meet you and offer you an experience that comes from a place of utmost passion and love.
