kind words

I can’t recommend Maria enough for anyone who wants the most perfect photos for their wedding day! She was excellent at communicating, took time to get to know us and listen to our ideas and visions, and really allowed us to be ourselves and feel understood. Sometimes it can be uncomfortable to have your photo taken, but she made both of us feel at ease. She is bubbly and up for an adventure, she took multiple money shot, haha! My husband and I were completely blown away with her! She knows her stuff! If you want a photographer who will respect and represent your individuality, and be your biggest cheerleader whole doing it, she’s your girl. I’m forever grateful for her warmth, cheer, and mad skills. Thank you Maria!

I'm Maria Nieves

Most days you can find me in yoga pants snuggling on the couch next to my husbabe, Miguel, trying not to binge watch Netflix shows and dreaming of our next travel adventure or cleaning, cooking or doing something spontaneous for my three children or furbabies. I am a lifestyle & wedding photographer, a plant lady, a skinny popcorn and food enthusiast, and a woman who always has her bags packed for the next adventure or mini trip. Our life here is short, so I believe in making it count, keeping it real, and always finding reasons to connect with people. I love watching the sunset, hiking, spending time with my little family & creating a cozy home atmosphere. I believe in wild love that commits to forever. The photographs I take are more than just pretty pictures—each of them tell unwritten stories of beautiful and wild souls committing to do life for forever. That’s the inspiring stuff that gets me out of bed everyday. What else would you like to know?

Because my friend you can ask me during our session. Can't wait to meet you and make that moment and session memorable.
