My name is Maria, and thank you so much for visiting our website! This is a little about me, your photographer, who I am and also who I work with. I won’t bore you with my whole life story, but it’s important to get to know a little about the person behind the camera. After all, I’d like to know a little about you before I begin recording visual memories and capturing special moments of you and your loved ones!
My life is in southeastern NC, the Wilmington area. Oklahoma City is where I’m originally from, but I have been here for over 18 years, (it’s hard to believe!). The picture below is my main posse, my ride or die crew, or you can call them my family. (We also have a sweet little Tibetan Terrier and orange tabby cat.) My husband and I are still madly in love after 12 years! We enjoy working out together, watching movies and eating sushi. He is often used as my experimental model, but if you asked him about it, I’m not sure he would say he enjoys it!
I went to school for photography but I feel my best teacher has been passion, experience and time. Years of constantly shooting and experimenting with lighting, locations and equipment has got me exactly where I want to be in the world of photography! I have thousands of photos under my belt, (or should I say, under my lens…) and I’d love to add thousands more!
My main focus is families and weddings, but I also have lots of experience with babies, senior grads and events. If you have me photograph your wedding or event you may meet my assistant shooter, Kelly! She is a sweet blonde with a passion for the camera! She specializes in boudoir photography and has been in it for years. She is married with two cool kids and a cat named Haley.
Please, tell us about yourself and loved ones under “contact” in the menu! We look forward to meeting you and creating some beautiful images together!
