Thank you all for your Love. I am blessed!



After rescheduling a couple of times due to rainy weather we finally got a small break to have our family portraits done.  Mari had so much patience with our son who was more interested in playing at the playground.  I really wanted the session to focus on our son.  But she convinced my husband and I to take a few together.  I am so glad I listened to her because our pictures came out so BEAUTIFUL.


I was very fortunate to have Mariana do my maternity session.  I don’t usually feel comfortable being in front of the camera but she made it fun, enjoyable and flexible too.  The pictures are awesome! So much so, that we are having a hard deciding on which ones!  I definitely plan to use her for future events and refer her to others.


Mariana is awesome! We were very luck to have Mariana for our wedding photographer, and she was amazing. For starters she is just a great person to have around all day at your event, she is fun, personable, makes everyone feel very relaxed and she is always professional all at the same time. She was able to get everyone to cooperate and also able to get all the group pictures done quickly while also getting great shots. The end product was really amazing all her pictures were great and really captured the emotion of the day. We couldn’t have been happier with her as our photographer, and her second shooter is also great. We have so many great pictures to choose from, it will be difficult to narrow done our final product. Some friends at the wedding liked her so much they have already booked her to do family portraits.

I have used Mariana photography for 3 years now. Each time I think she has outdone herself, she surprises me over and over again. Professional and passionate about her work, which is demonstrated through pictures taken.
My overall experience has been extremely positive and I will continue to trust my most treasured memories with Mariana Maya Photography.

So I was totally nervous at first. I have always been curious about taking some sexy photos for my long time love. He has always been the most supportive person in my life, loving me unconditionally, and making me feel beautiful no matter what I look like. I wanted to capture that, the way I feel when he looks at me…not the way I feel when I look in a full length mirror on a typical day. So the question was who do I trust to do something like that, someone who has that eye to see what I am feeling, someone to make me feel comfortable enough to show more than I normally show, and someone who is discrete….Why that would be Mari. I have known Mari for a few years, I have seen her work and have always been a fan, she is fun to hang out with and is not afraid to voice her opinion creatively. When all was said and done it was the best experience I have ever had…and the results were sooooo fabulous. They were tasteful, sexy yet discrete enough I was able to share them with my mom. Oh and my husband….he liked them too.

“Mariana captures the moment like a true eye according to life.  Her creative work shares her gift back to the community, family and friends.  Thank you Mariana for your talent of photography!”

“Mari did photographs of our newborn son, and did a fantastic job! Working with a small, anxious infant and equally neurotic parents is not an easy thing, but she did it with so much humor and such great tact that made the whole experience go very smoothly, the increasingly skeptical baby not withstanding. Her photography is creative and has a lot of charm and whimsy to it; it has an almost (for lack of a better word) journalistic quality to it that seems to narrate a story, rather than the kind of “stock images in artificial poses” style that you can see anywhere.  She’s a fun, engaging person with an equally fun, engaging viewpoint. We heartily recommend her!”

“Talk about one fun shoot. Mari is awesome a true professional photographer. She made myself and my husband very comfortable during our spunky bridal shoot.  I definitely recommend her; so if you want quality work and a really comfortable environment for your shoot please make sure to hire Mariana Maya Photography you will not regret it.

If there was an option for 1 million stars that’s what I would give her, She is the BEST Photographer ever! You couldn’t ask for anyone better. Her work is flawless! You will extremely pleased and you will want to share your photos of her work with everyone. Amazing, Amazing!! I Highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a great photographer.
