Hey there, I'm Maria! It's so great to meet you. I’d like to tell you a little about myself and why I am so enthusiastic about photography.
First things first, I'm a coffee addict (seriously, don't get between me and my morning cold brew!) and a lover of simple pleasures. I am an island-born Philippines native, raised in the bustling city of Hong Kong, and now I call the breathtaking mountains of Colorado home. Here, I feel most creative and inspired.
When I'm not shooting weddings or editing photos, you can find me indulging in my favorite pastimes; usually curled up with a book and probably eating tacos(I've never met a taco I didn't like). I also love afternoon walks and listening to true crime podcasts—especially when I’m driving to a mountain wedding(stay out of the forest, murderinos). And let's not forget about my guilty pleasure: binge-watching Gilmore Girls. Trust me, I can quote this show like nobody's business!
One of the things I truly cherish about my job is being able to witness and be in the presence of so much love and excitement that fills each and every wedding day. As a sucker for romance, it fills my heart with joy to be a part of such special moments. It's why I pour my heart and soul into every photograph, capturing the genuine emotions and stories that unfold.
But enough about me, I want to hear all about you! Whether you want to share your photography dreams or engage in some light-hearted Gilmore Girls trivia, please don't hesitate to reach out. I would be honored to hear your story and help bring your photography vision to life.
