Hey there!

Maya here. I’ve been shooting weddings for five years all around the world and it’s the best! I love photographing couples in every stage of their lives and making sure their memories represent them. I’m based in sunny Southern California with my golden puppy but I’m so down to meet you where your love takes you.

My goal is to photograph my couples in an authentic and fun way. I want you to look at your photos all the time and relive the best times of your life! I’ll make sure you feel comfortable in front of the camera by prompting you instead of awkwardly posing you. With my couples in mind I create an experience to make sure you get the photos of your dreams. Your wedding is about YOU and you deserve photos to represent it.

Memories are made in the moments

 We truly feel like we hit the jackpot with Maya. She is everything you could want in a vendor; professional, super sweet and ubbbber talented! We felt like she was our oldest friend just hanging out with us during our elopement. She took charge of the day which allowed us to focus on the magic. Our photos are so breathtaking and everyone who sees them can’t get over them. She completely captured our essence as a couple! We feel so lucky that we had a PERFECT fit for what we considered THE most important choice for our big day. To feel so at peace with cherishing these photos for the rest of our lives is a great feeling. We recommend her to everyone!!! - Kassadie + Daniel :November 2018

Your first payment is your deposit of $750 to hold your wedding date on my calendar and then your remaining balance is due the month before your wedding date. I do offer customized payment plans to my couples if they would like to pay a little bit per month before the wedding date so they aren’t paying a lump sum right before the wedding. The full balance must be paid in full the month before the wedding.


Your wedding gallery will be delivered via high resolution online gallery right to your emails. You can view, download, share on social media and buy prints, albums etc.. right from the gallery. Check out a sample gallery here


Turn around times vary depending on how busy the season is when your wedding takes place but on average weddings are delivered within 4-6 weeks and engagements are delivered within 2 weeks. You bet I’ll be sending you a next day preview gallery though!

I’m planning an elopement but don’t know if my location allows ceremonies

Most couples have never attended an elopement because they usually don’t have guests so if you need help planning locations, or have permit questions / need help, I got you covered! I have a ton of knowledge on Elopements and would love to help in any way I can. I want your day to be perfect!

How many people can I include in my intimate wedding / elopement?

Intimate weddings are 30 guests or less and elopements are 10 guests or less.

Do you travel?

Heck ya! I travel for most of my weddings and elopements and would love to come to wherever you want to say “I do”.
