    Absolutely Perfect!

    Mariea and Kurt are the best! Our photos are absolutely stunning and exactly what we wanted!

    They are so fun, yet extremely professional and easy to work with. They made sure everything ran smooth and efficiently, which alleviated so much stress on us and our family during our special day.

    We would highly recommend Mariea to all our family and friends for their wedding and family photos.

    Best Photographer Ever!

    I knew that picking the right photographer was one of the most important aspects of planning your wedding - these photos will be seen for the rest of your life! Mariea and Kurt are not only AMAZING photographers, but they really know how to make everyone comfortable. Taking photos can be super stiff and awkward, but they had us laughing and at ease during the whole process. The photos turned out better that I could have imagined - I would recommend Mariea over and over again!!!

    Simply the best!

    Simply the best! The number one tip I have for those getting married is to find a truly talented photographer. Your photos last forever and you need to put that responsibility in the right hands. I would not have learned that lesson if I hadn't worked with Mariea. She and her team exceeded expectations in terms of professionalism, friendliness, and an eye for detail. We did not have a day-of coordinator, so Mariea effortlessly stepped into that role, ensuring she was respecting our plans and vision, while also taking the lead when necessary to capture all the best moments. All my married friends agree that my photos are undeniably superior in terms of quality (and have since asked for her contact info for the future haha). I've lost count of how many times friends and family have wanted to go through our wedding photos. They just can't get over how well done they are and how perfectly they recreate our special day. Like I said, the photos last forever so do yourself a favor and hire Mariea.

    Thank you so so much for creating something that will always keep the magic of our wedding day fresh in our minds and hearts!

    Love Mariea!

    I decided to have a rushed wedding because my long term boyfriend proposed finally! We were moving in a couple of months out of state and we wanted to share our wedding with family and friends that still live in California before we left! Mariea responded quickly to my calls. We made arrangements within a few weeks. Also, she was a breath of fresh air during my wedding day. And the photos turned out beautiful!!! Thank you Mariea, we love you!!

    Detail Oriented and Professional

    Erin and I are so glad that Mariea photographed our wedding at our church in Davis CA. Mariea was able to help calm us with helpful posing advice and alleviate our nerves with humor. We recognized the attention to detail that Mariea brings to her shots, eliminating awkward hands and positioning people well for each picture. Her husband Kurt also photographs with Mariea ensuring that no special moment was lost that day. We especially appreciated that she even was able to utilize additional light that she and her husband set up to brighten indoor pictures in our church sanctuary. When you are planning your special day it’s important that you are hiring people who care, Mariea is that person, her attention to detail and professionalism came through when we saw the final result of the beautiful moments she caught at our photo reveal. Mariea was a huge blessing to us and our families on our wedding day.

    Talented and Amazing Photographer

    As the title states, Mariea is amazing and talented. She was initially a referral to us and we couldn't have been happier. For our destination Wedding, she and her husband traveled to Italy to capture our life moment. They are a great team and it shows in their craft. They were also wonderful company during their entire stay in Italy with us. Her photos beautifully shot and edited captured everything we loved about our wedding. We can't wait to use her services again.

    Fantastic photography team

    Marie and her team did an outstanding job with our wedding photos. Before that, she did a great job of helping us plan for our big day. She was organized, flexible, and helped us stay on track through the day. Do yourself a favor and hire her for your wedding. You'll be glad you did.

    Great job and easiest part of the wedding!

    Mariea was so great to work with! I planned my wedding from across the country and she made it so easy. She was east to get ahold of though the phone and email. Very professional and she knew exactly what I wanted. She did an amazing job with the photos that I love so much and had so many options.

    Amazing Service

    Mariea and kurt are amazing! They made sure they catch everything, all the most import shots but the most important to me was the things i didn't even know were going on! (father daughter moments, first dance, last dance, guest, special moments and everything in-between) They just get the process and what needs to be done! They make it such a stress free time! Which everyone knows isn't always the easiest. Would recommend to everyone!

    we LOVE Mariea!

    As soon as we met Mariea we knew we loved her! But, when a family emergency (cancer) forced us to swerve and cancel our June 2019 wedding we found ourselves planning an immediate wedding in just a few weeks.
    When I called Mariea to explain the situation, she and her husband didn’t miss a beat, they took our new date (now a Sunday) and promised to be there. Every detail of her work, timeline, planning was impeccable.
    The day of our wedding was emotional but our goal was to still keep it happy and Mariea somehow captured exactly that with her pictures.
    Months later, when Mariea found out the tragic end to our family emergency, Mariea sent me a beautiful locket with a picture of me and my Dad from my wedding day along with a beautiful note and I will cherish these gifts forever.
    I cannot tell you enough how special this husband and wife duo is! They truly do become part of your story, and part of your family.

    Mariea and her husband photographed our wedding this past August. They did such a fantastic job. Mariea was incredibly organized and patient and did a great job herding easily distracted friends and family for a big photograph together. Neither of us feel super comfortable getting our picture taken, but Mariea's easy going attitude made it much more comfortable. She was creative and had great ideas for pictures around the property. We are so happy she photographed our wedding and can't wait to see the pictures. Thank you Mariea!

    Mariea shot our Wedding on June 7th, 2014 in El Dorado Hills at Sienna Restaurant. We just got the photos back and they turned out AMAZING! We could not be happier with the overall experience, she was responsive during the whole process and gave us a great timeline so we knew were to be and when (even though the groomsmen didn't follow as well as the bridesmaids!). She was super flexible and even allowed us to add an extra hour the day of our Wedding.
    You will not regret choosing her as your photographer!

    We loved Mariea the first day we met her! We knew from the very beginning she was going to be our photographer and we made the best choice by hiring her for our wedding! Not only is she an amazing photographer, she such a great person! She is so easy to get along with, she's open and honest, and she just made us feel so comfortable since day 1! My husband is a very shy guy, but she got him to open up and relax in front of the camera and I am so thankful for that! I would highly recommend her! We love her!

    First off, I have known Mariea a very long time. However, I had not worked with her professionally until our wedding day. Since we were across the country, most of our communication was via email with the occasional phone conversation. We had our only meeting 3 days before the wedding. We would have an additional shooter besides Mariea herself. Then wedding day arrived. About 3 hours before she was scheduled to arrive, she called my planner. She was violently ill and headed to the hospital...and had arranged for another photographer to take her place. Soo...once I decided to calm down and accept what was out of everyone's control, I was fine with it. Then, surprise, surprise!! She shows up and kept the third shooter as well! Needless to say, I admire her tenacity and drive. She is a highly committed professional with tons of talent. Also, she had our photos completed much faster than I ever expected. We are absolutely astounded. Due to her eye, we can actually relive the emotions of the day. I didn't know that was possible. Thank you, Mariea, for all you have done for us!

    Mariea did a great job. She was able to wrangle my huge family and got some amazing shots of everyone.
    The whole experience was very personal and she came up with ideas for our engagement pictures and of the wedding.
    She got our pictures to us earlier then we anticipated and were amazed at how they turned out.
    She worked great with the other vendors and helped to keep the wedding on time to make sure we had time for everything.
    Again, an amazing job and I couldn’t have picked a better photographer.

    Mariea was wonderful to work with from the very first phone call! I planned my wedding from out of state and wasn't able to meet her before hiring her but she was able to go over her philosophy and style on the phone and completely put me at ease! Mariea had great suggestions but also listened and worked with my ideas (and my moms :)). The day of, she was at the ceremony site early and ready to go the minute I arrived. She was able to get all our pictures in but not make anyone feel rushed. I can't even count the compliments we've had on the pictures and am so pleased with how everything turned out! I recommend Mariea to anyone and everyone!

    Mariea did an OUTSTANDING job at our wedding! She was fun and captured all the pictures I requested. She was a great value compared to comparable photographers (skill and artistic wise.) It's great having a photographer that can nail the group shots as well as the general feeling of the day. I'd recommend her to anyone with great enthusiasm!

    I still get butterflies every time I look at my wedding pictures. I don't think anyone could have done a better job capturing the way we felt on our special day. I am so thankful I found Mariea! I would recommend her to anyone who wants gorgeous, timeless memories captured from the most special day of your life. As stressful as wedding planning can be she was reliable and professional and actually helped make my day go more smoothly...I can't say it enough...she's wonderful!!!!
