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 that includes helping with location ideas, outfit inspiration, and engagement session planning so you come ready and excited for your shoot. I want my couples to have the photos of their DREAMS! I can’t wait to hear more about you two and what makes your love so special!

Memories are made in the authentic moments

  “WE TRULY THINK THAT MAYA HAS A GIFT FOR SEEING THE BEAUTY IN EVERYTHING. NOT ONLY IS SHE SUPER TALENTED, BUT SHE HAS AN AWESOME PERSONALITY (PROFESSIONAL, YET SUPER CHILL) AND MADE US COMFORTABLE BEING PHOTOGRAPHED. MAYA WAS SO EASY GOING AND SOFT ABOUT GIVING DIRECTIONS. WE REALLY FELT AS IF SHE WAS ONE OF OUR FRIENDS!”

 Investment

Engagement sessions are some of my all time favorite sessions to photograph. From the beginning I’ll help you decide on the perfect location, best time for lighting, outfit ideas, and get to know you so you’re session feels comfortable and fun! I believe in photographing couples with a sense of candidness to bring out who they really are through their photos. Don’t worry about awkward poses because there is none of that, just prompts to keep you moving and having a good time with your love! I can’t wait to get to know you and photograph this most amazing time in your love story so far! Below are all the packages I offer for engagement sessions currently. They all include editing, any travel expenses and fees wrapped up into one price.

HOW DO THE GALLERIES WORK?

Your engagement/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 http://picti.net/R75xI


WHAT ARE YOUR TURN AROUND TIMES and how many photos do we get?

Turn around times vary depending on how busy the season is when your session takes place but on average engagement sessions are delivered within 1-2 weeks after your session date. You bet I’ll be sending you a next day preview gallery though! I have never and will never limit the amount of photos my couples get but you can expect anywhere from 80- 250 images depending on how long we shoot.


How do payments work and do you offer payment plans?

To book your session I do require a 50% retainer to hold your session date. This retainer is part of the overall package price and is non refundable. The remaining balance is due 2 weeks before the session date. I offer payment plans for wedding packages only
