yeah, baby. let the

good times roll

honest & heartfelt photography for best friends in love

based in Arizona & portugal, traveling to wherever your story takes us.

It's about the BIG moments + the small ones. The genuine, goofy, one-of-a-kind love you share. Sneaky kisses + spicy booty grabs. Quiet tears + laughing so much it hurts. And having photos of it all that feel so right, you secretly wonder if your best friend took them.

it's all about
   you & your babe.

the best part about this whole "getting married" thing?

It's about what you think an epic wedding day is -- whether that's a wildly glamorous ceremony & all night dance party with your crew, or a destination elopement with a pizza picnic and boozy milkshakes just for the two of you. (Both sound freakin' DOPE to me).

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

"MAIA IS YOUR GIRL. Not only she is so talented, she is also a wonderful human being. She takes her time to get to know you as a couple because she really wants to capture your raw and genuine moments!"

"She was just so down to earth and made everyone felt so comfortable. 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. THANK YOU so much Maia!"

I'm maia, and I'd be honored to document your day.

If you ask any of my previous clients who are now good friends, they'll probably tell you about how you'll see me jump up and down every time I look at the back of my camera during your day, and how you're likely to catch me tearing up at least once during your vows. They'd probably also say that I'm a hype-you-up-all-day type of photographer who LIVES for in-between moments and documenting life as it happens. I'm honored you're here and considering me, too!

"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!"

your love is comfy, unhurried, heartfelt, & timeless.

your day (and your photos) should feel just like that, too.

so, you want a photographer that looks at love stories like a photojournalist, & shoots like a storyteller.

You're in the right place ;)

 I focus on candid and natural moments, with a little side of making sure you know what to do with your hands & "what parents want." you get the day documented as a whole story, naturally felt & happily remembered.

no lie, you two are the real deal.

"she is the best photographer / person you will ever meet."

"sweet maia is TRULY a magician."

"On the day of our wedding, we gave her a new title of photographer ++++++++++++++ because she helped in any way possible to make sure our day was executed flawlessly. "

so, where is your love taking us?

to wherever the party's at, yo →

Maybe it will be just the two of you with an officiant on a secret forest hiking trail where you first fell in love, or maybe you'll have a small but mighty cliffside ceremony with a few close friends and an epic hangout in a local brewery afterwards. Whatever your vibe is,  I can't wait to help you dream up the perfect day and document you living it to the fullest. 

Whether you've got an intimate backyard ceremony planned or just booked your dream venue with all the wild dance party lasers and an open bar, I'm all in. You don't need to elope to have a wedding day that's relaxed, untraditional and all about you -- especially if you just can't even imagine getting married without your crew. Let's do this thing.

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."

are def not about:

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

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 ;)
