"Hiring Mariah to photograph our wedding was one of the best decisions we made. In addition to taking amazing photos, Mariah separated herself with her never-ending energy and enthusiasm.
At the engagement shoot, we were both made to feel like models! She was great at both giving us tips and suggested poses to get great shots in the environment, but also at capturing our improvised and intimate moments. She also saved the day when we were "fogged out" at Bodega Bay by finding shooting locations around Sonoma County that ended up looking better than we could have imagined.
At the wedding itself, Mariah and her team were simply wonderful. They were everywhere, yet never felt in the way. She got all the shots we wanted and some we didn't anticipate. She was also great at handling our family members (not an easy task) and also working with our videographer to make sure both the photos and the video turned out great. In sum, we could not recommend Mariah more. Her pictures and service were wonderful. The only downside is having to spend so much time making copies for all your friends and family who will want some!"

"We are so glad we chose Mariah to photograph our wedding! One of the great things about Mariah is that she is really good at making you feel at ease having your picture taken. While taking posed photos she provided subtle direction that was very much appreciated, But at the same time, she is also skilled at capturing candid moments in their best light.
She will take note of any special requests, and when we asked to incorporate few shots with a vineyard she and her assistants went out of their way to capture the most beautiful vineyard sunset photos for our first look.
Another thing is she is SO fast! If you provide her with a list of your family shots she will get them done in a snap so that your guests are free to enjoy themselves at the reception in no time. Our pictures are stunning, and we are so happy we chose Mariah to provide us with so many lovely photos to remember our wedding day."

"Mariah is amazing! She photographed our wedding and the photos are absolutely beautiful and everything that we wanted them to be. To me, the most wonderful thing about Mariah is that she not only takes great photos, but is also so fun to work with!
Much of our day was spent not even noticing that she was there, snapping pictures of us, but when we did spend time taking portraits, she really made it fun and totally painless for me AND my groom! Even her assistant is fun!"

"Mariah was funny, kind and down to earth explaining everything you need to know. She exceeded our expectations and our friends and family are raving about how beautiful the photos came out.
An expert at reading people she captured all the moments we remembered and good candid photos too. If you want to hire your best friend for the day and will hold your dress, help with your shoes, make you laugh all while carrying 50 lbs of camera equipment hiking in bushes - couldn't have had a better photographer!
Very respectful and professional -plus her assistant is right there beside her the whole time and went above and beyond. They make a great team! Really created a great experience for us and beautiful photographs/ memories to share."

"Mariah and her team are absolutely amazing!! Mariah was a joy to work with, Due not only to her willingness to be flexible with some unexpected timeline issues that came up prior to our wedding, but because she conveyed a genuine care and interest in getting the best photos for our special day. My hubby and I 100% recommend Mariah to anyone looking for an awesome photographer/experience!!"

"Mariah is so incredibly talented. She did our engagement session as well as our wedding, and all of the photos were stunning. She has this unbelievable ability to photograph movement, emotion, and honesty in her photos. I love her ability to capture those candid moments that tend to pass us by if no one draws our attention to it. She's lovely, professional, and puts you at ease. She gives clear direction, and knows how to get the shots she needs."

"Mariah and her assistant were a pleasure to work with for my May wedding! You can tell she loves her job and she was so much fun to work with. She has so much spunk and put everyone at ease while having their photo taken. She provides great direction and made it easy and comfortable for me and my husband to pose for photos. She said she was confident she could get us comfortable in front of the camera without doing an engagement session and she was right. Thank you Mariah!"

"We fell in love with Mariah at first meet!! So sweet, and passionate about what she does. Our photos turned out wonderfully. Everyone should use this lady.
P.s. If you are a bride or groom that finds yourself "self conscious" and feeling unsure about taking photos... You want, NO you need Mariah. We were so comfortable having her take our photos... The could NOT have turned out better!!"
- BG (bride)
"Mariah has been amazing from the beginning of our engagement through the wedding. She is professional and friendly. She also made the planning SO exciting and really set me at ease with her informative questions, suggestions and experience. My husband and I HIGHLY recommend her. We will excitedly use her in the future for our professional photography needs! Also, just look at her pictures on her website, she is SO talented! :)"

"Mariah is AMAZING (and her assistant was great also!). She had done my friends wedding and I loved her so much, I knew I'd want her for our wedding. She did our engagement photos and our wedding and they are SO wonderful!!!! She captures such emotion and she's so original with her ideas. We've gotten SO many compliments on our pictures, even people saying they wish they could get married again just to have her photograph it! I'd recommend her again and again!"
