GET ORGANIZED. GET CLARITY.
Your website is your storefront. It needs copy that's clear, shows your authority and builds trust. It's time to clarify your messaging, create a passionate brand voice, and connect directly with your dream clients.
Because while your art is the face of your brand, your copy is
the smart, clever voice that sells.
Even while you're logged off.
Disappointing confession: I'm not a magician. But I do know how to pull ideas out of your head like a magic hat!
Real talk: time is THE most valuable asset you have as a small business owner. You deserve to spend it doing stuff you actually *like* doing. So if you dread your copy - toss it over a metaphorical cliff, and into my inbox.
Language is my zone of genius. I will organize all your nebulous ideas and get you on the right track, not only making you sound your best, but confidently conveying your expertise in the process. Your dream clients will come to you.

Hey there, I'm Mariah
I'll help with
sm & email templates
Have a backlog of blog & content ideas and just need someone to jump in and start knocking things out asap!
Value a specialized, no BS writer with deep knowledge and experience in the creative or wedding industries.
Know you need to level up your copy, but have no idea where to start. You need lots of guidance and structure.
English is your 2nd language, or you just "aren't good with words." You need someone to audit your existing copy.
Before the consultation call Mariah sent me some resources about brand voice and a very detailed questionnaire. It helped me better understand how I really want my copy to sound. I was so impressed with all the questions Mariah asked during the branding call and the tips she gave to find the right answers! It helped me to realize better my mission in my business, what goals I have, and how I want to communicate with my clients. That's all connected and Mariah showed me that! So I would say it's more than just copy - it's really how my business sounds. Now when I read my copy, I love it so much that I would definitely hire myself immediately!

Every small business owner 150% needs Mariah and trust me, you'll regret that you didn't hire her before!
Mariah's copywriting services literally went beyond my wildest expectations. I thought I was just going to receive copy that sounded more like the business owner I wanted to become. Instead, she gave me copy that not only sounded like me, but resonated with the audience I've been trying to attract for YEARS. Her words put me tiers above my previous clientele, to ones that will happily pay more for luxury photography. My favorite part of the copywriting process overall were the strategic video calls - those meetings were fun, thought-provoking, and ultimately didn't feel like "work". It was FUN to work with Mariah and see what she was creating. Any time she sent me an email I would celebrate, because I knew positive energy would be flowing seamlessly into our interactions together. Mariah really made a better business owner.

PLEASE run, do not walk, and hire her
I found Mariah when I realized that my website was seriously lacking in personality. I was frustrated trying to convey myself and make everything sound fun. I knew Mariah would be a great fit because I enjoyed reading her own website PLUS she knows the elopement photography industry since she is also a photographer herself. I had a blast talking to her during our video chat and I felt like she really understood and got "me". She is so personable and helpful, while also super professional and kept to the deadlines. After reading the first draft of my copy I was in LOVE. This new copy is going to help me connect with potential couples while also adding that extra spark to my brand!

After reading the first draft of my copy I was in LOVE.
English is my second language so I found it challenging to put my “creative thoughts” into words that not only grammatically correct but also speaks to my ideal customers, so I really appreciated Mariah and her previous experiences working with people like me. I loved her identity process especially the archetypes, I have learned so much about myself and the why’s. I think the whole experience was just so rewarding and fun. I have sent my website to my close friends and they couldn’t believe how personal my copy is, they really thought I wrote it as my true self just came through. Now I am able to copy and paste parts of my copy and use it across my social media to emphasize the language and to attract the ideal customers for my photography business.

She 100% NAILED it!!!
The deets - Mariah was hired to create, schedule, and post content to my SM platforms for my elopement photography business. I have a deep dislike for SM and have actively tried to avoid it, which you just can't do when running a small business. Mariah worked hard to learn my voice, and try to come up with content that was authentic and engaging. Most of all, it was evident throughout our time together that she really went above and beyond in lots of little ways to help grow and engage with my audience. Mariah was able to jump right in, and quickly developed processes that streamlined everything. As for success - I saw my numbers grow both in audience and engagement. Mariah did an excellent job, achieved our goals, and was a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend you hire her immediately.

Morning coffee and reading the newspaper together, the cool fall breeze blowing through the window as you pour another cup. Black denim and leather boots, the deepest crimson flannel. Rose gold and velvet. Rich and lush. Chatting with locals while we sip our coffee and head out for the next adventure.
Sipping chartreuse and green tea while looking at the most perfect white subway tile and hand painted signs. Driving through the mountains to Portland reminiscing about the best memories back home. Cozy sweaters, vintage denim, and Pabst while telling one of a kind love stories.
No. I provide a word document and pdf version of your copy with clear titles, headers and subheaders. You will have to manually put the copy into your website design builder, or forward it to your designer. I also include clear CTAs and design suggestions that would mesh well with the copy!

I like to spend at least 90 minutes in a call guiding you through some branding questions so I can get a feel for how you want to speak to your ideal client. I dig deep into your "why" and try to help you uncover aspects of your business and brand philosophy you may not have considered before!
Pricing is based on either 1) final word count, or 2) a project price with clear deadlines, milestones and checkpoints. Projects must be booked with a flat 50% retainer up front. Final payment must be transferred before delivery of the final draft. Blogs and IG captions are typically per word count, email templates and website copy are priced per project.
Good copy SELLS. You need to capture and hold your audience in less than 3 seconds. The problems you can solve for them should be clear, relevant and said in as few words as possible. Add in a dash of wit, a pinch of personality, and a LOT of value, and they're start to trust your product. Bad copy that is unclear, has errors or is irrelevant costs you $$$ in lost inquiries.
No. Unfortunately, as with most creative work, my time is my time. I do my best to make sure we are a perfect fit before accepting payment; most disharmonies are usually cleared up during the draft process :)
Every project comes with clear milestones and deadlines based on scope. For most projects, you can expect your copy back within 4 weeks if feedback deadlines are met!
YES. This is especially for photographers and the wedding industry. I believe marriage is for everyone, and that inclusive language is an important pillar of diversity. If you are a wedding vendor that intentionally does not serve LGBTQ+ couples, we will not be a good fit.
Blogging definitely isn't dead. It's evolving. Blogs are the best way to be discoverable in Google searches, and put your brand and expertise right in front of your ideal client's eyeballs. When you write about the topics they care about, you build trust, authority and recognition. Blogging drives organic traffic and is a great way to start ranking in Google.
