“There is only one happiness in life, to love and to be loved.”
Hello! I am Maria. Its such an honor that you are considering us to document such a special day in your lives- the day you officially say I do- thank you! I am located on the pretty north shore of Long Island- NY in Rocky Point and absolutely love living here. I've been blessed with the obsession of capturing one of my favorite things on this planet- the love and magic between souls for the past 12 years with my boss- one of the most kick ass wedding photographers/ boss I know. I don't ever plan on ever leaving her- however I must admit I really enjoy being my own boss too and enjoying the journey of where this passion of mine takes me!
At age 4, I fell in love with LOVE- my mom introduced me to the book- Cinderella. I fell in love with her & her Prince, all the pretty details and all things romance. Taking out all of my mom's photo books was something I did pretty often - this fascination inspired her to purchase my first Polaroid for my 9th birthday! Countless synchronicities led me here- I am so thankful for each one. Fast forward to 2006- I studied commercial photography at Briarcliffe College- though I knew exactly where my heart was leading - documenting love & weddings. I've been blessed with the privilege of documenting almost 1,000 weddings in the past 12 years. When I was little I used to say I wished to go to lots of weddings- proof that wishes do come true ..
I aim to capture every moment & detail of your day as if it were my very own. The excitement and joy, all the beautiful details, the fun, the silly, the happy tears & everything in between. My intention is that my couples are obsessed with their images- that I assist in helping to anchor the beautiful memories in their hearts & minds for a lifetime & beyond!
“HIRE MARIA! She is fantastic & made every step of our planning easy, from our engagement shoot, to making a timeline of our wedding day, to helping us relax while taking all of our pictures. Not to mention how amazingly thorough she is- we had everything planned out & she delivered! We will absolutely be hiring Maria again for anything we need pictures of, & I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone!”
