More about Maria V....

What do you love about your job?

I love being a photographer because it allows me to be creative, meet new people, freeze moments in time, tell stories, express myself and go places.

What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?

I've experimented with many types of photography. Portraits, fashion, lifestyle, events, maternity, intimate weddings, still life, food, abstract, etc.
Connecting with my clients, understanding the light, using a professional equipment and thinking ahead of the shoot are few of the things that differentiate me from other photographers. Plus always bringing a positive attitude to the shoot and do my best to exceed the clients expectations.
