New Jersey Wedding Photographer

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!

Best photographer

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.

Maria is amazing!

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!

I can not say enough good things about Maria. Her price is unbelievable for the amount of work, time, and quality of photos. She is very easy to work with and goes above and beyond to make sure you get every photo you could want or need.

Best Photographer EVER!

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!

The Sailor & The Mermaid

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.... By Maria

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.

Amazing Maria!

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!!!

Louie and Patty Married

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!

Look no further for the perfect photographer!!

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.

captured every moment

Kristina said... 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!
