Photography Style

My photography style is candid, photojournalistic and documentary. I like to direct my clients with some prompts and then capture the real moments that happen. I will throw in a few poses, but I lean heavily towards prompting real interactions. I love making people laugh and make sure all my clients have a good time during their session!

My editing style can be described as true-to-life with vibrant colors. My tones tend to be slightly warm with medium contrast. Take a look at any of my galleries below for more examples!

What My Clients Are Saying

Mariya is a great photographer. Super professional. She is really transparent with her contracts and payment methods. Always on time- with the process, on the day of, and delivery of the photos. Very jovial and easy to talk to. She is super responsive, the longest we had to wait for a reply was 2 hours I think, which is really really important. She never leave you hanging. I promise you, you hire her once, you will never need another photographer’s number ever again. I had a great experience (2X over). 10/10 would recommend.

Mariya did an amazing job with our engagement photos, and you can tell this is her passion and she really cares about her clients.  She guided us through the whole process down to vision and outfits, and was open to any ideas we had. She was extremely professional, always arrived early, met all deadlines, and promptly answered any questions we had.  She really wanted to give us a completely customized experience based on our vision.  I have already recommended her to people and will continue to do so.  We are excited to have her also shoot our wedding this summer!
