how do I do it?

Hey hello, I'm Maia Chloe.

I'm a photographer who knows exactly what it feels like to be uncomfy in front of a camera or worried about what a photo of yourself looks like, and I make it my mission to never let you feel that way, too. You can think of me as your wedding-dream supporter & advocate, the one who will probably help carry your stuff for you without being asked, and the girl who's always cheering you on and cracking terrible dad jokes to get you to smile. I'm also a proud dog mom, a huge Marvel Movie nerd, and an outgoing introvert who loves to explore the world and can't ever say no to chocolate. 

more about me

SHE // HER

"MAIA IS EXCEPTIONALLY GOOD AT KEEPING THE JOY OF THE DAY FRONT AND CENTER." 

"SHE HAS A KEEN EYE FOR MOMENTS THAT JUST CAN’T BE STAGED OR REPEATED. WE ABSOLUTELY LOVED THE ACTION SHOTS OF OUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY DANCING AND GETTING TO RELIVE THE CANDID MEMORIES OF THE DAY!"

Elizabeth & Omar

"SHE REALLY TAKES HER TIME TO GET TO KNOW YOU AS A COUPLE AND SEES YOUR RAW AND GENUINE MOMENTS."

ALTHOUGH THE WEATHER GODS WERE NOT THE NICEST TO US ON OUR WEDDING DAY, MAIA WAS STILL ABLE TO CAPTURE ALL OF OUR MAGICAL MOMENTS SO BEAUTIFULLY. OUR GUESTS KEPT COMMENTING HOW AWESOME SHE WAS THROUGHOUT THE NIGHT!! WE COULDN’T HAVE ASKED FOR A MORE PERFECT HUMAN BEING TO CAPTURE OUR BEST DAY. 

Kristine & Long

"SWEET MAIA IS TRULY A MAGICIAN."

"BOTH MY FIANCÉ AND I DREAD HAVING OUR PHOTOS TAKEN, AND YET MAIA MADE THIS SUCH AN INTIMATE AND REMARKABLE EXPERIENCE FOR US! WE WILL TRULY REMEMBER THIS DAY WITH HER FOREVER AND EVER AND EVER. SHE WAS THE PERFECT COMBINATION OF PROFESSIONAL, ASSERTIVE, PLAYFUL, LOVING, AND CREATIVE, AND MADE AN HOUR FEEL LIKE 10 MINUTES (A BIG DEAL FOR A GUY THAT HATES GETTING HIS PHOTO TAKEN) AND MADE US FEEL SO ADORED AND COMFORTABLE IN OUR OWN SKIN."

Calamity & John

"IF I COULD ADD MORE THAN 5 STARS FOR MAIA, I WOULD."

"SHE IS THE BEST PHOTOGRAPHER / PERSON YOU WILL EVER MEET. SHE WORKED WITH MY NOW FIANCÉ!! TO PLAN AND EXECUTE THE MOST AMAZING SURPRISE PROPOSAL, AND PRODUCED THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PHOTOS THAT TRULY CAPTURED THE MAGIC AND VULNERABILITY OF THIS INTIMATE MOMENT IN THE MOUNTAINS OF SANTA BARBARA. WE'VE ALREADY BOOKED HER FOR OUR WEDDING! :) BOOK HER!! YOU WILL END UP WITH THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PHOTOS, THE GREATEST MEMORIES AND A LIFELONG FRIEND!"

Savannah & Matt

You're my kind of people, if you...

100% BELIEVE that:

Love is love & LGBTQ+ rights are unnegotiable, black lives matter, women's rights are human rights, & no human being is "illegal."

You're def not about:

Rudeness, bigotry, judgement, or anyone who diminishes other people or makes them feel small.

sometimes find yourselves:

Working in coffee shops, at the dog park, buried in a book, constantly trying new restaurants, or traveling.

Your Moments Matter.

And you should be fully present in them. Savoring every single thing as it happens, while feeling completely at ease...because you know your story is being documented with care and purpose.

If you made it all the way down here, I think you deserve a reward for that...and I LOVE a good easter egg like in my fave Marvel movies. So why don't you go ahead and reach out when you're ready...and if you mention the word "infinity," I'll give you one hour free in your photography package ;)
