  • "I loved our day and I LOVED Maria. We worked together for my engagement pictures and I knew I'd be in amazing hands for the wedding. She is so easy to work with and so so sweet. The day was so seamless with her and all the girls loved her so much as well. I got so many compliments on how beautiful I looked and it was all thanks to her. PERFECTION."
