nostalgic photos for
the romantic dreamers

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 all very anti-bride vibes. 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. If these are your vibes, we simply must be friends.

"Maria is an absolute dream to work with. Her artistry is truly one of a kind and her work is unmatched. Her attention to detail is incredible and her demeanor makes you feel so at ease in front of the camera. I cannot express how lucky we feel to have had her photograph our wedding and we look forward to any opportunity to work with her in the future."

I'm always available to you to help you decide on a location if you feel you need suggestions. 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.
