We are Maria & Scott, we are inclusive, easygoing, caring & documentary oriented photographers.
I'm mostly Venezuelan, he's a Lancaster guy. We love visiting new places, cooking from scratch, eating at holes in the wall, or splurging on interesting food here and there. We are also loyal friends, and we would most definitely like to meet your pet(s).
We photograph real life in a beautiful way, which starts by making you feel comfortable, so you can see yourselves in your photos. We will try to be as helpful as we can starting with that first email. That means sending you info specific to your wedding, making awesome photos, but also always being there to answer your questions, or run to get you comfy shoes on your wedding day. We love that we get to do what we do, and we will continue to document your life for as long as you let us.

Amazing photography by the most amazing human beings ❤
I have been working with Maria since we hired her back in March/April of 2019. She has done our engagement photos which we loved. And I was so excited to see how our wedding photos would turn out for our May 2020 wedding….. well covid-19 happened and we decided to postpone our wedding.
From my first encounter I could tell Maria would be a kind hearted person. I really got to see how much of an amazing human begin she truly is. She reached out to me and checked in on our plan for our May 2020 wedding date. When we told her we were going to postpone, she was very flexible and accommodated our new plan.
But that is not the true example of how amazing, flexible, and dream accomplishing this photographer is. In July I had a crazy idea to elope. We found a gorgeous little venue and set up a date for July 19, 2020 to get married. I reached out to Maria and asked if she could photograph my elopement (WITH LESS THAN A 2 WEEK NOTICE). She was a dream maker! She said yes and was thrilled to be a part of our elopement. My elopement was not what I had planned for a year. But it was a beautiful and a special moment. Maria really made it a special event. She made my husband and I a small wedding cake (such an amazing surprise) and took flawless pictures (seriouslythe picturesare breathtaking). Although we did not have family and friends at our elopement. Maria and Scotty truly made it feel like we were surrounded by people that cared about us and felt like family and friends. I am so grateful and thankful for her and her amazing skills with a camera.
If you are looking for a photographer who has amazing talent with a camera and who will treat you like family, look no further because Maria Silva-Goyo is the one.Sent on 08/14/2020
Maria Silva-Goyo Photography's reply:I already responded to you in a private email, but apparently people will think I'm rude if I don't respond here. In short, thank you so much. This year has been difficult for everybody, and we just wanted to do what we could to make things better for you. I'm so thankful that things fell into place and we got to see you guys exchange vows. I'm so happy for you! We will happily keep taking photos of the two of you over and over again 😉.

Best photographer you'll ever find in Central PA and likely all PA!
Maria was so wonderful and super responsive since the moment I contacted her. Her and her partner Scott were super on the ball, were willing to drive to the location we wanted to take the pictures at, and helped my fiance and I feel super comfortable throughout the whole process taking the pictures. We had access to a full gallery of beautiful and touched up pics in about a week after the photo session. I'd definitely recommend to anybody looking for a wonderful, professional, and super attentive to detail photographer to capture your special moment.Sent on 09/01/2020
Maria Silva-Goyo Photography's reply:I'm so happy things fell into place and we were able to do the photos. We are glad you found that spot, the park was worth the drive! (and so was the food 🙃).

Photographers on another level!
Maria and Scott were dream photographers! I stumbled upon their website while looking for local vendors for our wedding. Peering through their gallery, I saw the quality and style of there work was just what I was looking for. From sending the first inquiry to seeing the finalized photos, we were in constant communication and never worried about a single detail. Leading up to the wedding she asked all the right questions and assured we were on the same page. On the wedding day, they immediately came to us and asked if everything was good. Which helped the crazy environment have a calm aura. They went into action and were extremely professional and quick. The wedding party even noted how they did an excellent job. Throughout the rest of the day they blended into the crowd and venue and were able to capture plenty of beautiful and emotional moments.
After the wedding, we still contacted each other back an forth about the photos. One really nice feature is the online gallery available to you. There you can see all of the photos and even order prints. When my husband and I looked over them, it was like we were reliving the day all over again. I am amazed and in awe of how everything came together. If you are considering Maria and Scott for your pictures, go for it!Sent on 10/02/2020
Maria Silva-Goyo Photography's reply:Thank you so much for this thoughtful note Michelle = ). It was amazing to be there with you, your families and friends seeing everybody come together and take care of one another. I know I've said this, but it really was a beautiful day to be a part of.

I am mostly Venezuelan, dog & animal friend, food & cooking loving, outdoorsy person, and I genuinely love photography. I have moved around and lived in very different places, and enjoy the perspective and the people that has brought into my life. And now that I'm somewhat settled, I love that photography keeps adding that to my world. I've gotten to meet couples and people of many traditions, and backgrounds, and love witnessing all ways of comiting to your favorite person surrounded by people you love.
