Here’s the thing, your wedding only happens once, you’ve put in blood, sweat and tears getting the details together, and corralling all of your family is in the same room. You deserve a photographer that recognizes the importance of the work you’ve put in and is ready to capture all the moments of your day. 

Weddings are the closest thing to living out a movie in real life. As your photographer, I keep an eye out for how your community reacts when they see you. The moments where your parents hold hands during your ring exchange, or when your maid of honor cries laughing at the joke in your vows, I focus on getting not just you and your partner's interaction but all the other reactions in the room. 

I come in as a community member, integrated in your family so that I don't come off as a stranger who's crashing your wedding day. I promise, I will feel more like a family friend that you've known for years. Days like these rarely happen anymore, so it's super important to capture as many in-between family moments as possible. 

This is a community storytelling moment

Growing up in a big family, organization was key. That’s why I emphasize spending time with you, planning out your day ahead of time, visiting your venue, and visualizing where each event will take place. I meticulously plan your wedding with you so that there aren’t any surprises (and if there are, we’re ready to handle them). 

The Pro filmmaker turned wedding photographer Approach...

What you get when you book Maya Papaya

Because of my background in filmmaking, I’m a pro at shooting in any lighting condition, whether your wedding is at 6:00 am or 12:00 noon, I will use my skills to make sure that you and your partner look amazing in your images, I also bring in lighting equipment, in case the environment doesn't have adequate lighting.

Wanna know the key to those “unposed, raw, authentic” photos? Movement! Because of my background as a director I’m a master of directing you and your fiance to perform a task, that way your mind is thinking about how you’re going to twerk your partner off your back and not the goofy photographer in front of you.
