Hi! My name is Mariya and I am a Cleveland based photographer specializing in portraits, couples and weddings.
My goal is to document your story and capture all the fleeting moments.
A wedding photographer is not simply photographing your wedding day, they are capturing your story that is bigger than the day itself. Every couple has their story that they want documented and shared with the world, and my job is to capture your story authentically, while guiding your vision of your big day through each step of the process.  

I started taking pictures in high school on one of those small digital compact cameras. I would go around taking pictures of literally EVERYTHING. Then, my dad got me my first DSLR, a Nikon D90. I loved that camera and used it for years. I used it through college at Kent State. I was a fashion design major and took pictures of my outfits on models. Towards the end of college, I got a lot more into photography and started getting paid gigs. After graduating in 2015, I kept doing photography gigs while figuring out adulthood. It took me some years to figure out my career path but I kept doing photography the whole time. In 2021, I rebranded and restructured my business and here we are! 
I love connecting with people and building relationships. I feel blessed to have the opportunity to work with such wonderful people every day. No matter the type of session or number of people, I always bring the same passion and dedication to each client. It's my priority to make sure everyone goes home happy. 
Thank you for stopping by. I look forward to hearing from you!
