Wedding in Italy with Maija
Maija is an incredible photographer - and someone you want to be there on your wedding day. She is so kind, funny, and open that you immediately feel like you're with a friend.Sent on 12/28/2018
She traveled to Tuscany to photograph our wedding - and was a complete hit with everyone. Not to mention, she took INCREDIBLE photographs - I feel so lucky to have found her website, and even luckier that she agreed to come to Italy to photograph our wedding.
She is the most incredible photographer, and captures truly happy moments. The candid photographs she took are outstanding. If you are thinking of booking Maija do yourself a favor and head over to her Instagram to see the beautiful work she does. She is the perfect photographer for any type of wedding and was a wonderful destination wedding photographer. I would recommend her fully and completely - I wish we could do the whole day over again!
Maija Karin Photography's reply:Natalie, my heart is overflowing right now with gratefulness for you and Logan! You made one of my greatest dreams come true - to shoot a wedding in Italy! But what made it truly amazing was YOU TWO!! Your love is beautiful and it was wrapped in the most perfect backdrop. I loved every minute of it and I want to relive it all over again. Let's go back!! At least for another glass of wine ;) Many blessings, Maija

Maija Karin Photography was our photographer for our engagement photos and wedding on 6/23/19. Aside from the quality of our photographs, our experience with Maija was amazing. During the engagement session, it was a blast to pose for her. She kept the day light and fun. Did I mention the photos turned out amazing!!!! She also sent us cute personalized gift which was above and beyond.Sent on 08/21/2019
At the wedding, she was also great with helping plan out the day-of schedule and fitting in the photo sessions without interruption. She was amazing at finding the best locations for backdrops of various photos such as our first look. She and her husband made a great team. They battled wind, rain, and freezing cold for us. We received our photos in a timely manner afterwards. As we flipped through them, we couldn’t have asked for better photos. They will be something we cherish forever. Thank you Maija for capturing our day. If you are looking for a photograph seriously go with Maija.

Couldn't be happier! Thank you:)
The easiest decision of our wedding was made when we decided to hire Maija to capture our day! Her passion, enthusiasm and absolutely stunning photos made the decision a simple one. Knowing that we had Maija taking so much care documenting our wedding day in the amazing way she does really took the pressure off. With her wealth of knowledge, incredible eye for detail and friendly and approachable disposition we had rave reviews both on the day and afterwards from our guests and bridal party. Nothing was too much trouble and everything was done with a smile. It really felt like we had another friend there with us throughout all of the crazy wedding planning and on the big day. We can't recommend Maija highly enough; going above and beyond, she is the girl you NEED behind the lens.Sent on 06/25/2019

Maija Karin Photography's reply:Thank you so much Malika & Emanuel!! You two were literally a dream to work with! Not only do you have absolute hearts of gold, but you are fun, creative, and beautiful :) I loved every moment I got to work with you two. I wish you both endless happiness, joy, and tons of adventure (which I know you both strive for every day!) Much love, Maija
What a great company to work with. We highly recommend.
I have worked with Maija of Maija Karin Photography in both a personal and professional capacity, and have been consistently amazed by her talent and professionalism throughout every event. I initially met Maija upon hiring her for our own wedding, and couldn't have been more pleased! Our photography was a priority to us, and in addition to having beautiful images, we wanted a photographer whose personality would enhance our day. Maija gave us all of that and more; she was warm, funny, organized, direct when needed, and put us completely at ease. Our photos are the most wonderful mix of stunning portraits and evocative candids that were beautifully and tastefully edited; we truly treasure them. Since our own wedding, Maija has shot promotional photo shoots for me (I'm a floral/event designer), and has done equally amazing work for family members' weddings upon our recommendation. A truly talented photographer with an infectious spirit and unbeatable work ethic!
Maija's photos are elegant and effortless! She is a pleasure to work with, very flexible and accommodating. The consummate professional, she makes our job easy! You will be thrilled with your decision to share your day with Maija!
