Olivia & Joey

Her professionalism, creativity, and sweet spirit just set her apart. She made us feel SO comfortable, and gave us constant encouragement and instruction along the way. The quality of her portraits speaks for itself, but I’ll add to it by saying she just blew us away!

Maria exceeded all expectations from day one!


I have had 3 sessions with Maria and each one has been perfect! Having a photographer that has watched you grow up makes each session so much more special. Maria hid in the bushes to take surprise pictures of my proposal, she will literally do anything for her clients. All of my sessions have been in the Orlando, FL area, she will literally travel anywhere she has to to make your photo dreams come true! Thank you Maria for photographing my life and capturing moments of my life that I will never forget.

she will literally travel anywhere she has to to make your photo dreams come true! 


She was so organized and knew exactly what needed to be done. During my event Maria also focuses on making sure I was happy! My pictures turned out great! I love them so much and couldn’t be happier. It was worth every dollar spent!

Maria did a great job with my large wedding party. She was able to get everyone listening and in place so quickly.


I cannot say enough good things about Maria!! Truly so kind hearted and truly cares about what she does and it shows! I cried when I got my engagement pictures back. I wouldn't trust anyone else to do our destination wedding .  And I cannot wait! I know she will blow me away once again!
