let's connect

My work is grounded in preserving moments in their truest form--capturing the genuine emotions and sweet nostalgia of the fleeting moments in our lives. Movement, connection, and storytelling are my sources of inspiration. Effortless, genuine, documentary, nostalgic, and true to color are a few words that I like to use to describe my work. I find purpose in creating timeless imagery with a splash of creativity, and lean into the real moments that happen during your session and on your wedding day to tell your story. 

I am here for you throughout our entire time together. When working with me, you can expect an easy going yet professional vendor to create your dream day. You can look forward to helpful emails, customized guides, and insightful questionnaires that will guide you every step of the way so you can feel confident leading up to your session or wedding day. Vendor recommendations, outfit inspiration, wedding timeline assistance, and other useful tips and tricks are included in order to help you make your day the best day ever. Planning your big day is a big deal, and I am honored to offer support whenever you need it.

my approach is

02

To be completely honest, the experience begins with you. 

Ask yourselves, what is most important to you about this season of life you are in? What will these photographs mean to you? In the years to come, when you close your eyes and reimagine your day, what are the emotions and feelings you are wanting to have been captured?

Ultimately, you are investing a lot, so this shouldn't feel like a chore or an item on the checklist. You're in love! Which is so exciting and so fun! And it is something to be cherished and celebrated.

I pour my heart and soul into my work, and strongly believe that at the end of the day, your wedding is so much more than the photographs. 

It's about capturing the beauty of humanity.

It's about instilling presence over perfection. 

It's about creating an experience that feels natural, above all else, and an environment where there is no need to perform--you can just be you. 

Most importantly though, it's about creating lasting memories that resonate with the emotions of your day to tell your story.

CLIENT Testimonials

- SABRINA + QUINN

"We could not be more in love with our photos. We both noted that taking pictures was effortless, we never got tired of being in front of the camera because Mariah made the experience as comfortable, genuine, free-flowing, and "in-the-moment" as possible. Our time doing couples portraits was one of our favorite parts of wedding day because we just got to enjoy the little moments between the two of us while Mariah captured that authenticity, emotion, and love between us. We feel those same emotions coming through as we look at our photos, which is so special to us - and a true testament to the talent, skill, and beauty of Mariah's work!"

She checked in frequently and was so easy to communicate with. She goes above and beyond for her people. As for our wedding day, we owe how seamless the day went to her. She brought so much calmness and excitement at the same time. She kept everything moving the way it should but didn’t make it feel forced. She is beyond kind and such a joy to be around. Our photos were everything and more that we could have ever dreamed for. We believe she is beyond talented and would not have wanted anyone else to capture our day. Our photos are real and raw. They are filled with love and she was the one who was able to see those moments and capture them so naturally. She is beyond talented at what she does and she puts her whole heart into it. We love her so much and HIGHLY recommend her!"

You can tell she genuinely cares about each of her clients and their unique story-- and we weren't just another number to her. We are so incredibly happy with our photos, and we will cherish them forever. Would 100% recommend Mariah to a friend and other brides.
