With a background in filmmaking, my job is to approach your wedding like I would a film – balancing between the director and a fly-on-the-wall approach. My primary focus is on documenting all of the emotions in the room, that way in the end you get photos that reflect how the day felt, and not just what your shoes looked like.
Maya was the backbone of the behind the scenes for Sam and I’d micro wedding. She was flexible, hilarious, and made us feel like we’ve been friends all along as we spent the whole day together hiking Cathedral Rock for photos and Lover’s Knoll for our ceremony in Sedona. I could not have asked for a better wedding photographer. Last of all, our photos are beautiful, I still get daily compliments from them and always praise Maya!
The best Arizona elopement photographer!
30 minute consults turned into 2 hour phone calls. At our wedding, her and her team caught every moment with perfection, but were stealth enough for me to even forget they were sometimes there. Maya was my first hug after I said "I do" and was one of the last people busting out dance moves on the dance floor next to me. i would get married a million times over just to get to continue to experience her work and love for what she does. Thank you enough enough Maya, we love you!!!!!!
She was such a constant support throughout our wedding planning and we went from business partners to friends very early on in the process.
Maya is a true joy to work with, she takes the awkwardness out of taking photos...she is your hype person during the session truly making you feel like magic is being captured. As a disabled bride, it was important for me to work with someone who understood. At our engagement session I suggest taking photos with my mobility device, which wasn't a discussion beforehand. She handled it with grace and understanding and took flawless photos that highlighted us, not my equipment. I cannot speak more highly of her and can just say HIRE HER!
A dream come true.
From meeting her at the vendor open house we knew she would be a perfect vendor for our wedding. She was so responsive throughout the entire process, made sure we always had questions answered, and made the whole wedding planning journey a breeze. All of our wedding party, family, and friends commented on how FUN and personable she was. She makes you feel like you’ve known each other for years and makes everyone so comfortable in front of the camera. She is so talented at what she does. We absolutely adore all of our photos and feel like we’re reliving the day every time we look at them!
I will never have enough good things to say about Maya!
We knew from the moment we had a zoom call with her that she was going to be the perfect fit for our wedding. We don't live in AZ so had to do a lot of zoom calls and she was so helpful and informative to ease my mind. Maya did amazing with assiting in the timelines, dealing with family/friends, and ensuring all of our hopes and dreams for our special day came true. We will truly cherish these photos for the rest of our lives. I would highly highly recommend having Maya capture your event any day! We truly feel like we walked away with a friend and plan to continue to have Maya capture more life events for us in the future!
I can't say enough good things about Maya.
