More About Memories By Maria Photography

Memories by Maria Photography was designed to capture memories of your family, wedding, newborns and special times in your lives. I love taking photos.  I love meeting people and creating photos that you will cherish forever.  I like to bring to my sessions a happy, relaxed atmosphere that will create great smiles and natural spontaneous photos.  I treat each photo like a work of art. I do all the editing and artistic enhancements.  

I love weddings!  I love being able to tell your story with my photos that will be a treasured keepsake for many years!  I get to know my bride and grooms at your engagement sessions, meetings, attending the venues with you and by discussing details of the your wedding by email, phone and text.  We work with timelines and shot lists so that I know exactly what you want me to shoot on your wedding day.  It is your day and I am your wedding photographer!!

My goal is to give you a gallery of photos that will make you smile, love and maybe shed happy tears. I love to hear your excitement when you see your photos.  I believe in printing your photos.  I want you to frame your photos, hang them on your walls, put them in albums and share them with family and friends.  

Photos shouldn't just be kept in a computer file.   I can deliver beautiful photos professionally printed on photo archival paper that will be cherished for years to come.  I also design beautiful albums using your choice of photos.  Save the dates, wedding invites and thank you cards can all be designed and professionally printed.

Maria was such a wonderful part of our wedding ceremony! I had contacted her several months prior about photographing our intimate, family-only church ceremony. She was very responsive, and made the next steps clear! She was creative and helped us capture some beautiful shots inside/outside of the church of both us the couple and our family! We love the photos!

Maria has been an absolute pleasure to work with! I reached out to have Maria in the Fall of 2019 to help capture my surprise proposal in Avalon, NJ. We were so happy with how the photos came out and how responsive Maria was, that we knew we wanted to work with her again. We went on to have her capture our engagement session, backyard wedding in Sept 2020, and now wedding reception in May 2021. At each session, Maria was always prompt and prepared. She has a great eye for photo spots and gave us easy directions on how to pose. The one thing that we always appreciated was how quickly Maria was able to get our photos back to us, and the amount of amazing shots that were included in the full gallery. It was great getting those "sneak peaks" within a few hours of the shoot so that we could share the images with our friends and family. We also appreciate Maria's attention to detail and eye for setting up beautiful scenes. We definitely enjoyed working with Maria to capture our story!

Maria was the photographer of our dreams! Right from the first email, she was absolutely professional and made us feel completely comfortable. She knew the area and gave us excellent advice on locations and even ended up suggesting the spot we got married when torrential rain put the kibosh on our beach ceremony plan! Through rescheduling due to Covid, last-minute changes, specific requests, and flash-flooding, Maria was totally unfazed and just calmly rooted for us and took wonderful photos! I would recommend her to anyone!

Maria is the absolute best wedding photographer we could have asked for! From the first time I talked to her over the phone I knew I did not need to look any further. We instantly connected and she wants to do what you want! With the pandemic she was extremely accommodating from the start. We had to reschedule our engagement session first and a few weeks later we had to reschedule our wedding.When planning a new date for our wedding Maria completely worked around her schedule to help give us the date we wanted! Maria helped us from the beginning to the end with our timeline. Her professional opinion was more than appreciated. We got Married in Holgate Long Beach Island, New Jersey. Maria helped us pick a time when the lighting would be perfect and the images she capture are out of this world. When I view our gallery I cry every time and feel like I am reliving my special day. I am so grateful that we found an amazing photographer like her and we will definitely use her in the future!

Maria was amazing!!! I could not have picked a better person to capture our special day! She kept me sane while I was planning my wedding during the pandemic...she ensured me my day would be perfect and it was! She is very organized and had the timing planned perfectly for everything! She captured all of the special moments that we planned together and many more! Since we weren’t able to have a normal first dance I had asked Maria if she could arrange for my husband and I to still dance to our wedding song in the vineyards at the venue we had our dinner at and she played the song for us.

I planned my wedding in 4 weeks so I did not give Maria much notice when I inquired about her capturing my day. But she was responsive, flexible, and accommodating. She created a custom wedding package for my day. She arrived early and got so many amazing shots. Our gallery was ready within 2 weeks. I would absolutely recommend Memories by Maria!

Maria did an incredible job for our engagement and wedding photos! The pictures are absolutely stunning! Her talent and attention to detail had her at the right place at the right time, delivering a photo series that captures each moment from our perspective, as well as that of our family and guests. She was very accommodating and easy to work with, yet provided her photography services are set at an affordable rate! Maria delivered over 1,000 photos for our wedding! All of them are so beautiful. It’s hard to pick our favorites. I highly recommend her services for any of your future photo needs!

It was the most enchanting day and we never dreamt that the "feeling" of our wedding could be captured so perfectly. Every moment, every special touch, every surprise, every person....captured thru Maria's lens. When we were and when we weren't expecting it. Glances, hugs, tears, laughter, dresses, drinks, flowers, food. We will never forget ONE detail because we have this amazing wedding album that is our entire Memory....

Maria was amazing! She was very warm, easy to work with, and listened to all the questions and planning ideas I had about my d.i.y. wedding. Maria was organized and captured the most beautiful shots of my day! I love all the little details Maria managed to catch as well as capturing some gorgeous photos of the groom and I! I would highly recommend working with her.

Maria was so amazing from start to finish. She was very flexible and accommodating to our plans and requests. The day of, Maria was all over the place capturing beautiful shots and then followed us on quite the adventure through Atlantic City grabbing fun shots (in the freezing weather). My friends and family were asking for her info without even seeing the pictures because they loved her personality and saw how much she cared! But when we got the photos, holy cow!! They were stunning! Magazine worthy for sure! She also made incredible thank you cards that were a hit amongst all. We will be using Maria for every big life moment moving forward!!!! Thanks Maria!!!

Maria was such a pleasure to work with. She had wonderful ideas for engagement and wedding photos. She made our engagement session so much fun. On our wedding day I didn't feel like I was always taking photos. Maria just blended in and took great photos. Maria was very professional and detailed. I would recommend Memories by Maria Photography for any special occasion!

We booked Maria to do our wedding photography based on the referral of some friends that had used her for family photos. We met with her for engagement photos, so we could all get to know each other a little better before our big day. I could immediately tell that Maria had “an eye” for unique and special touches, based on the various settings she chose and ideas she incorporated into our pictures. We loved her work immediately. If you are looking for someone to capture your memories perfectly and naturally (not with “staged” shots), then look no further. Maria recently photographed our evening wedding in November, and was able to work with the setting and lighting to capture our day beautifully. She’s extremely talented, easy to work with, and very professional. We look forward to using her for family photos in the near future.

Maria was absolutely amazing to work with. She was so flexible and accommodating to everything we wanted not only for our wedding day, but our engagement photo session as well! She is so easy to work with and hands down one of the friendliest vendors I dealt with on my wedding day. She managed to capture every moment and photo I could have possibly wanted. She exceeded any expectations that I had and we will definitely be using her for any photography needs we may have in the future!
