From Illy & Doug
Maria – I can’t even begin to thank you enough! The photos are absolutely stunning! I remember the day feeling so wonderful & feeling so in love with Doug, you’ve somehow managed to capture my feelings in a photograph (or should I say multiple photos). We both shed tears remembering the ceremony & laughed at the silliness from the reception. But I think my favourites were taken down by the water when it was just the 3 of us.. You are so unbelievably talent & a truly beauty person with a kindness that radiates through. Thank you for being a part of one of the best days of our lives.
From Laronia & David
Wow Maria! Just wow, You went above and beyond on our magical day, your creativity and professionalism have now become everlasting memories of our beautiful day. You’ve captured everything we wanted, it is breath taking to be able to relive it all through these amazing shots. Maria you are a rare talent, and you made us feel completely at ease. We have had so many beautiful comments about the pictures, we are in love with the album you have created us. Thank you Maria 5 stars just isn’t enough xx
From Louise & Derek Gilby
We eloped for our Wedding; all of our booking and communications were done via email; she was super helpful and quick to reply; and very understanding as to what we wanted from our photos. We had not actually met Maria until just a few minutes before our ceremony, but found her to be quite relaxed and approachable, and willing to go in with no real plan.
She was not imposing when taking her photos, neither during the ceremony, nor afterwards; in fact, we barely even noticed her there!
She was not pushy at all in getting us to move around to get better photos, and didn’t expect us to ‘pose’ (something we expressed we were not keen on); instead she left us to our own devices for the most part and captured some really gorgeous candid shots of our wedding, occasionally suggesting we “go over there” or “here might be a nice spot for…”
My kids absolutely adored her and were really relaxed around her, as were we.
I can not recommend Maria more highly for her services. She has a wonderful eye for detail and a beautifully relaxed and fun loving nature.
If we visit the area again and need photography done, we will use her services again.
Thank you again ❤
From Beck & Jake
Hi Maria. We want to thank you so so much for the wonderful work you did capturing our wedding day. We are so happy with the photos, you didn’t miss a single moment of our special day. I feel like I can’t thank you enough. You were so easy to work with and your beautiful personality made us feel so comfortable.
All our love Beck and Jake xxx
From Mia & Bryce
We loved every single one of our wedding photos! It was not only the main events but Maria captured the essence and emotion of the day in a way we were not even aware was possible. From getting ready right through to the fireworks that we surprised everyone with, she captured it all so we can re-live our special day over and over again.
We not only received these beautiful keepsakes to last a lifetime, but also a friend. It was a privilege to have you with us on our special day and to get to know you Maria!
Thank you! xxx
From Tracey & Christian
Maria is amazing! There was mix up with the photographer I booked on the morning of my wedding, I rang around and Maria saved my day!!! She was absolutely incredible! I can not recommend her highly enough!!!!
From Ruhee & David
What can I say about Maria, other than she is fantastic! Our wedding was held in June 2013, and my photographer had pulled out with less than 6 weeks to go, when I contacted Maria. Right away, I knew I had made the right choice. Maria was relaxed and easygoing, rather than pushy, and although my husband is not at allcomfortable with cameras, she managed to get truly beautiful photos which reflected our day perfectly. Everybody who looks at my wedding photos loves them, and I have Maria to thank for that. I would recommend her wholeheartedly! Our wedding, our memories, emotions, laughs and tears have all been documented beautifully. Thanks Maria!
From Catherine & Renato
My husband and I find ourselves constantly looking back at our wedding, stunned at how amazing it turned out and how unbelievably special it felt. We could not have picked a better photographer to capture this special day.
I really enjoyed collaborating with Maria prior to the wedding. I discovered that she was humble enough to learn from other photographers. This was a great advantage because she had so many great ideas to offer such as wearing rainboots for our photoshoot due to the predicted rain and boudoir photography.
The boudoir photography (a little treat for the groom) turned out wonderfully. My husband was like a boy in a candy store the moment I informed him that I received the pictures. I’m glad Maria got such nice shots of my super cute/sexy lingerie and body parts. Best of all, I did not have to worry about how to pose. Maria knew what to look for and what shots to take. She even demonstrated the poses for me so that I would know what to do.
Her knowledge for photography, understanding for the fundamentals in visual arts, and appreciation for creativity were invaluable. She understood our vision. She was so enthusiastic with taking all those little details. My husband and I cannot thank her enough for capturing the memories of our wedding so perfectly, beautifully, and artistically. We can’t stop looking at our photos. Thanks Maria!
From Grace & Nick
“Maria is a wonderful photographer. Even though we had to pay for her airfare from Cairns to Sydney, it was well worth every cent. Her price was reasonable, and her photo-documentary-styled photos were gorgeous. Even the lady at the photo shop commented on their gorgeous colours! On the day itself, Maria arrived early and made every effort to help in any way she could. She even ran upstairs to help me get a forgotten pair of sandals. She has a sweet personality and is easy to get along with. It was wonderful how her website just happened to pop up on our Google search, and she was the exact type of photographer we were looking for (and yeah, we looked at quite a few!) We feel very lucky indeed.”
From Alisha & Chris
“Maria will make you feel confident from the start. It is obvious that she loves her work and wants to give you the best photos that she can. I absolutely love the photos that Maria has taken for our wedding and get many comments about how fantastic they are. Maria is a lovely person and makes every effort to get the photos that you want to make you happy with the results.”
