I'm MARIA, Wedding Photographer
I'm a wedding photographer base in South Jersey and I love capturing joyful moments of the Wedding Day! I'm so honored that you have reach out and excited that you are interested in choosing me to document your special day!
I believe that choosing a wedding photographer is about more than just hiring someone with a camera to document your day. Your wedding photographer should be someone who makes you feel comfortable, someone who eases the craziness of a wedding day, and maybe, someone who eventually becomes a friend.
I’m a wedding photographer based in Pennsauken, NJ. I love natural light and often use film to slow down time and truly capture the beauty of a moment. I strive to create beautiful images that are classic, natural and tell the story of each day.
I’m so thankful for the career that I have and I love each and every couple I have the opportunity to work with!
"Maria took our wedding photos in June 2021, and our engagement photos before that and it was such a great experience! She made us feel very comfortable in the pre-engagement photo session and answered all our questions. She goes above and beyond in preparing your for the session and communicating before the wedding day so on your special day, you are worry free and can just enjoy it! Her attend to detail both in making the experience great and the actual beautiful skill and talent in the product of her photos and albums was incredible and can't wait to do future photoshoots with her with our family. Thank You for a great experience, Maria!

After photographing many weddings over the past few years, I’ve found that I may not the perfect fit for every couple. That’s why this process begins with a conversation. Lets talk about the wedding plans, what are your most important photos, what do you envision for your wedding day...
We’ll get to know one another, talk about the details of your day, answer any questions you might have about working with me and figure out if we’re the best fit for each other.
I’m here as a resource beyond photography—whether you're looking for engagement session outfit recommendations, timeline advice, or vendor referrals.
Even if you're working with a wedding planner or you're planning a simple wedding, there are likely still a lot of moving pieces left leading up to your big day. I’ve photographed many weddings in the past few years and I’m happy to share everything I’ve learned along the way!
I’m big fan of engagement sessions for a few reasons. Not only do they allow you to get comfortable in front of the camera, they also give you the opportunity to showcase your personalities in a more casual setting that is significant to the two of you.
Engagement sessions can take place anywhere from immediately following a proposal to just a few days before the wedding. I’ve found that there isn’t a “good” or “bad” time to take your photos. I normally plan sessions based on a particular “look” a couple has in mind, spring flowers for example, or based on schedules.
I check-in about two months before the wedding to start chatting about timeline specifics, special details, family formal shot lists, special traditions and anything else I should know about your big day. While I normally don't send this questionnaire until closer to the wedding, please don't hesitate to let me know if you have questions during the planning process!
It's finally here! The day the two of you say "I Do" and dance the night away surrounded by your family and friends.
Just know I’m excited to celebrate and capture your wedding day. It's going to be awesome.
You can expect your photos to be delivered via an online gallery within about four weeks of your wedding. At that time, I’ll also send over details about preserving your images through prints and albums. I hope the relationship doesn't end after I deliver your photographs. I want to hear about the adventures of married life. And if you decide to have kids, I’ll love to document your growing family.
