    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! ♥

    Maria the photographer's reply:

    Dulce Thanks you so much!!
    I really appreciate you guys, good energy all around, and can't wait for the wedding!

    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!

    Maria the photographer's reply:

    Thank you so much, Choi! The photos of your session are still one of my favorites, it was a pleasure working with you.

    Exactly what we wanted!

    Maria is amazing!!! She was recommended to us by another friend who used her services and we didn’t regret. She works hard to get you the type of pictures you want, suggest ideas too and she also has a great spirit to that makes you feel comfortable. Recommended!! We loved our pregnancy photo shoot and she got some great shots of our dog too ❤️

    Very friendly and professional

    Maria was so lovely and amazing to work with! Both my husband and I are not used to taking pictures so she helped direct us and made us feel at ease. Our entire family loved working with her during the wedding ceremonies. It's obvious she researched the venues and our cultural/ religious ceremonies prior to the event so that all the important moments were captured. The pictures all turned out so beautiful!

    Maria the photographer's reply:

    Thank you Salma, It was a pleasure working with you all. I love intimate weddings and yours will always have a special place in my heart. Please go to your personal gallery and find these photos updated without the distractions on the back. Thank you so much!
