Hey, I’m Maria! I am a New York based destination elopement and wedding photographer. (duh)
I am a wife, dog mom, art book hoarder, and aspiring world travel. I’m super proud to be a dual citizen with the US and Italy and holder of a Fine arts degree in Photography from SUNY Purchase.
I have always had a strong connection to nature, enjoying hikes and camping from a young age which was very different from anyone else in my family who grew up in NYC. Growing up so close to New York City has given me lots of excitement of exploring big cities. To make sense of all of this, there is nothing more exciting to me than creating art while capturing a love story. Hiking up a mountain in Hawaii, navigating Tokyo’s metros, or finding a secluded beach in Sicily, I’m down for whatever adventure you throw at me!

My partner and I are not yet engaged but we decided together with Maria that a practice photoshoot would be fun! On a very (I mean, very) cold winter morning we met up with Maria at Central Park and immediately it felt like reconnecting with an old friend. We've never had a professional photoshoot before and she made us feel super comfortable and at ease. The photos turned out IMMACULATE and we love them! We'd recommend Maria to anyone :)Sent on 03/03/2021

A true talent!
Maria was one of the best parts of our wedding day. Truly, she is as sweet as can be and made the process incredible - even after only giving her four weeks notice before my elopement! She is professional, knowledgeable, talented, and overall amazing. Our gallery is everything I hoped for and beyond what I even imaged. Since working with her on the day of our ceremony, I have told every person who is engaged or planning a wedding to call her. Maria was an absolute pleasure to work with, and her photos are stunning. I cannot wait to have her take all of my future phots - I know they will be as perfect as our wedding ceremony gallery. The best of the best!Sent on 02/09/2021

Maria was hired by my fiancé & best friend to capture my engagement and I am SO lucky that they found her. Not only did she come to the rescue last minute but she so perfectly captured my happiest moment. Every time I look at these pictures I am filled with joy at the memory that she so beautifully documented for us. Not only is she very talented but she is also very down to earth and easy to work with. She let us have our moment, she didn't have us posing and acting. Instead, she shot the beauty of the moment while offering advice which allowed her to organically capture or genuine experience. If you don't believe me, look at this pictures, they speak for themselves!
I highly recommend Maria I am confident that she will flawlessly capture your happiest moments.Sent on 01/19/2021
