ABOUT ME

HEY THERE! I’M MARIA

 

I’m a wedding photographer based out of Northeast Florida. Nostalgia has been a big theme for me the past few years, not just with this biz but in my life: 90s movies, driving with the windows down while listening to Fleet Floxes, old photographs of my grandparents when they were young and wild, playing board games while listening to records, Christmas lights, ticket stubs from the emo concerts I went to, the list goes on and on. That cozy, wrapped up in a blanket on the couch on Sunday morning feeling I get from nostalgia is what I crave and why I pursue moment driven images for your future self. I work to create these nostalgic artifacts for you to look back on and feel all those cozy/hilarious/sentimental feelings over and over; from your personal touches on your wedding day, your first kiss as forever partners, to your own representation of what “reception” means to you (ranging from an intimate, cuddly gathering to a full on MTV Spring Break Cancun debauchery.)

A quick list of favorites of mine to help us connect:

  • I’m an ambivert (extrovert/introvert combo!)

  • I love a good whiskey cocktail

  • Third-wave coffee snob here

  • The Office is most likely on while I’m working

  • I own and help run a Vinyl Record Pressing company (see I told you I love nostalgia) with my touring musician husband and our best friend

  • Enneagram 9w1

  • Texting in GIFs all the way
