Maria Alcantara

An elopement was my very own chosen way of getting married. We chose a beach in Hawaii with a few of our closest friends and family members. We walked onto a gorgeous beach barefoot and smiling from ear to ear. It was perfect in every way. Let's talk about what you have planned. Maybe it's not a beach, although I can recommend some pretty amazing spots right along the Oregon Coast. It has to mean something to the two of you and I want to hear all about it.

"Maria is a phenomenal artist who takes the time to capture your beauty the way that you could only dream of. She’s super knowledgeable of gorgeous locations and knows how to find the perfect lighting no matter the circumstances. I can’t recommend her enough. I’m seriously obsessed with my gallery. Thank you so much Maria!!

I'm always available to you to help you decide on a location if you feel you need help. Some places and destinations require permits for formal events and larger parties. I have lots of experience navigating the permit inquiry process and finding locations.
