You spend your money on plane tickets rather than "stuff" and don't mind sleeping in a tent, a van, or cowboy camping under the stars.
Am I on to something here?
So shouldn't your wedding day - YOUR FREAKIN' WEDDING DAY - the day that celebrates and honors YOUR unique bond, reflect that? I'm here to tell you that it can, and it absolutely should.
Overnight trek through the Dolomites. Star shots. Alpen glow first look. Private airbnb brunch. Sunset vows. Italian Dolomites. Yes.
Small ceremony under an Icelandic waterfall with only your parents present? Yes! Sunrise Oahu surf session. Short hike up Lion’s Head trail. First look on the beach. Sunset vows on the North Shore. Let’s go. Canyoneering in the Southwest US. Saying your vows in front of your self converted van. After sunset fire pit shoot. Roasting s’mores and kicking back with your favorite beers and best friends. Bliss.
Lemme read your mind real quick: you don't want your wedding day to be stressful.
You and your partner are low key, low maintenance, and you share a strong connection to the outdoors. You're travelers. You prefer cozy game nights with close friends rather than loud parties. You wouldn't be caught dead in the club, because you feel most alive outdoors.

This is exactly what we want!
Mariah was honestly just incredible to work with! My partner Shaun and I have never had any professional photos taken before so I can safely say we were slightly nervous about being in front of the camera! However Mariah quickly made us feel at ease with her friendly nature and relaxed shooting style. with some guidance from Mariah and her impressive photography skills she has created some beautiful, natural photos in a stunning location which we will cherish forever. Mariah is such a lovely photographer, really easy to talk too with such a great energy - her photography work and is incredibly professional whilst also having a super fun approach.
"Just incredible to work with!"
My wife and I have done a few photo shoots now, but the experience with Mariah was really special! In a stunning location, she immediately had an exact idea of how the photos should be and was able to communicate and implement that great. We had a lot of fun and were also able to implement our own ideas, whereby you quickly forget that you are actually standing in front of a camera due to Mariah's open and super friendly manner. We are both super happy with the photos. So if you are looking for someone to create photos of the most beautiful day of your life, then you are exactly right with her :)
My partner and I can be pretty camera shy but Mariah made the shoot super fun and comfortable. Everything flowed so naturally, not forced, yet at the same time Mariah was great at bringing out the best in us and helping coach the scenes in a way that told our story perfectly. Her style is very romantic, unique, and artistic. It's a huge bonus that Mariah speaks German and can help guide you to some beautiful locations for photos. Can't say enough good things! Professional, easy to work with, and all around amazing photographer and a true artist.
"EVERYTHING FLOWED SO NATURALLY"
The time, effort, planning, and passion that went into each of our poses, angles, ambiance, lighting, and editing is priceless! Mariah makes you feel so comfortable for even the shyest of people (like my husband and I), so comfortable and free in front of the lens! She took the stress away by not only being such an amazing photographer, but also by being a bridesmaid, a friend, and a wedding planner on some portions. With Mariah, you’re not just hiring a photographer, you’re hiring someone that takes your vision to the highest quality of vision to create a life long memory of the best wedding experiences.
"TRULY ONE OF A KIND!"
To be completely honest, I’m not like the rest, and neither are you—that’s why we’re a good fit. A big traditional wedding or [insert uninspiring wedding trend here] isn't for you - and you know what? It's not for me either.
I'm a slow traveler, a backcountry dirtbag and serial adventurer. Going off the beaten path can be a little freaky though, so whatever elopement fears you have, I'm pretty passionate about helping you conquer them.
For me, this is about way more than photos - this is about empowering you to embark on a totally unique wedding adventure.
I'm your sidekick with a camera. Plus, I always bring plenty of snacks :)
