Hi, I’m Mariana! Nice to meet ya! Intimate wedding & elopement photography fills me with complete joy and making my clients feel totally comfortable on their wedding day is one of my top priorities.
Weddings and elopements are such a tender time in a couple’s life. Being able to share in the joy of the moment by becoming a part of their day, getting up close, and documenting the small, sweet interactions with my camera feels like magic to me. Add some mountains to the mix and I’m over the moon!
I’m not the kind of photographer who doesn’t communicate, making you wonder if I’m getting the right shots. I’ll give you helpful suggestions for posing without making you feel like I’m asking you to be someone else. We’ll capture what’s feels truly authentic to you.
My empathy (not my ego) is my plus one. Your wedding day is all about you and I’m 100% invested in helping you soak up every ounce of joy, love, and excitement. I’m not afraid to make you laugh to get you to relax, I’m a breeze while working with other vendors, and I’m comfortable working in all weather conditions – I’ll never shy away from a little rain or a lot of snow! I’m here for YOU.
“I don’t know what else to say other than that Mariana is the absolute best. Period. Not only is she an amazing photographer who takes beautiful photos, she’s also a genuinely great person. The joy she brings to her work is infectious and I’m so glad I found her and had her photograph our engagement photos and our wedding. Her work speaks for itself, but I consider myself incredibly lucky to have gotten to meet her because of the person she is”

“Mari takes the most beautiful pictures, seriously! My now husband found Mari on instagram three days before he wanted to propose to me, they worked out the most perfect surprise! Since then Mari has taken both our engagement and wedding portraits and there in NO ONE else I would hire! From the first time I met Mari, I felt comfortable, relaxed, and instructed on how to get the most natural looking and beautiful pictures. Mari has become a friend of ours and we will use her for ALL of our photography needs moving forward!”

“It’s rare to find someone like Mariana who absolutley loves what they do for a living and is so crazy talented at it. She just beams with joy behind her camera and captures such magical moments for people. My wedding photos capture all the feels from that day: the happiness, laughter, tears, love and silliness. I won’t have anyone else take family photos for us now but her. She’s professional and so much fun to work with.”
