Hi, My name is Maria.
I am a hybrid fine-art wedding & portrait photographer, shooting both film & digital. With the use of natural light and a hybrid approach to my work, I strive for a style that is honest, delicate and detailed.
My husband and I reside in Portland, Oregon and are both natives of the Pacific Northwest. I have always had a passion for traveling and like to make the most of experiencing new cultures through either exploring nature trails, trying good crafted cocktails, or simply just walking the streets of a new city. When I’m not on the road or in the air, my favorite thing to do is spend Saturday mornings at home with my husband, Jordan; sipping on coffee, spinning records and snuggling our pups.
My love of being a photographer has so much to do with my love for people. My favorite aspect about being a photographer is getting to meet so many amazing people and sharing in such special moments with them. One of the most valuable things to me in my work is building a relationship with my clients. I’ve discovered that the most beautiful experiences in life are shared with the people you’re most comfortable with. My priority is making sure my clients feel relaxed and have fun shooting with me. This not only guarantees a memorable day, but allows me to capture your beautiful, authentic moments.
