Hey there, my name is Maria, I also go by MAG.
I am so ecstatic to share my passion with you today! I have been photographing weddings for over 10 years, throughout which I've been developing my style of photo-journalism. I am a Philadelphia based wedding photographer, who enjoys to travel and will travel upon request.
One of my biggest joys of photography is documenting the love, spontaneity, authentic, and emotional moments of your wedding chapter, through creative imagery and storytelling. Although I photograph other events, I always focus more on documentary rather than posing. I mean let's be honest, I enjoy being as discreet as possible, that way you're not thinking of a person in front of you with their camera and telling you every second what to do.
Ever since I was a child, I have always been passionate about arts and culture. Wedding photography fulfills my passion in various ways more than I would have ever imagined. I've had the honor of photographing events featuring a myriad of cultures ranging from Hindu to Sikh and Muslin weddings to Jewish, Greek, Persian, and other Western weddings.
Being born and raised in New York City and living in a diverse neighborhood, I had the pleasure of making many friends and exploring their homes, but never fully experience the richness of culture as I’d have through photography.
When I'm not photographing or editing, I love spending time with my family and occasionally volunteering at the local dog center to walking adoptable puppies. I'm a foodie so I enjoy trying new foods or recipes. I enjoy simplicity, and natural authentic moments. As I prepare for a new chapter in my life, I start to think, how do I want to remember each moments? I tend to use my creative approach as a way to help guide me through the process.
I love what I do and I'm always looking forward to knowing where my life will lead.
I look forward to being a part of yours!
