Hi there! We are a film-inspired, boutique photography studio specializing in photographing elopements, intimate weddings, and vow renewals in Southern California's gorgeous backdrops and natural light without the fuss. Getting married will be one of the most transformative moments of your lives and you can have it all. Your elopement can be customized to your unique, personal style intimately or with the best of your people. We offer some of the most beautiful, diverse and intimate beach and open field locations on the West Coast. Our photography packages include guidance in location planning, marriage license application assistance, local officiants and other vendors. We are passionate about this unique, fuss-free way of celebrating your wedding day and would love to work with you.
We had gotten to know Maria beforehand, and that was AMAZING. It really felt like one of our friends was at our wedding, instead of a stranger who we would never see again. She was a pro, and clearly communicated what she needed from us WELL before the wedding. Having planned an entire wedding from scratch, I can say that that is a HUGE thing, because it doesnt leave you scrambling, and on the day everything went smoothly. 10/10, really can't say enough. Plus, the photos speak for themselves. Everyone thinks we are professional models now!
We were lucky enough to find Maria several years ago and she has been photographing our family ever since. We couldn't be more delighted with all of the sessions we have had with her. Her attention to details, unique touches and kindness make everything so special. Simply put, she is AMAZING! Last year my husband and I renewed our wedding vows for our 20th anniversary at Salt Creek Beach and Maria was there to photograph the event for us. We don't live in California any longer and she helped me set up vendors for hair, make up and flowers (which were all wonderful!). Her assistance was invaluable and made the occasion so much more unique. We will treasure the memories she has captured of our family for the rest of our lives. If you need someone to help capture the special moments, the everyday moments or the moments you want to save forever, you really need to look no further than Maria!
