Wedding photography that rewrites the rules

For carefree couples who are madly in love

Love is messy. Love is fun. Love is unpredictable and unstoppable.

You deserve a wedding that celebrates all the things that make your love uniquely yours.

I don't vibe with the idea that weddings need to look or feel a certain way.

I take photos that showcase the life you've created together, no matter what that looks like or how you celebrate it.

Your extraordinary love story is unfolding right now.

I'm here to write it down.

Hello! I'm Maya (they/them), your new photographer BFF.

Located in Pittsburgh and ready to travel

My three goals are:

1. To help you have fun + feel comfy
2. To be your hype person
3. To create beautiful images that celebrate your favorite bits of life

I became a wedding photographer because I'm a huge sucker for love stories and this role gives me a front-row seat to the best.

Spoiler alert: I will cry

Maya and their team were the most professional, helpful crew we could have asked for. Maya helped us out so much and was always there for good advice to help us out. I can’t say enough about how great they were. I highly recommend them!
