Lovely engagement session
My fiancé and I had our engagement session with Maria. It was the first time we ever had a photoshoot together, so we were pretty nervous, but Maria made soooo easy and so beautiful! We did not even feel we had to pose, all her suggestions and dynamics were very natural which made us feel more connected and intimate as a couple. The pictures were awesome! We are so glad about the results and definitely looking forward to doing it again. Thank you!! Everyone needs a Maria in their life! ♥Sent on 27/11/2020

Professional, passionate, and truly skilled at her art!
We had an amazing experience with Maria for our engagement shoot! She took her time to first ask us and understand what we were looking for in terms of style of shoot and location. I was so pleased when she suggested we do a photoshoot at Moraine Lake as we wanted to take advantage of the breathtaking views and blue green lake as our backdrop. Maria was so professional the entire time, and you could really sense her passion for photography as she guided us through our poses, never rushed us, and even had handy lil tips & tricks to make my fiancé and I feel right at ease. I highly recommend Maria to anyone looking to do an engagement, newborn, or any other lifestyle type of photoshoot!Sent on 19/01/2021
