Hello friends!

I'm so glad you're here!

I'm Maiya (like the month of May) - an adventurous wedding and family photographer based in Vancouver, British Columbia. I document couples and families who love to explore together, chase sunsets, and laugh until their stomachs hurt!


I'm a true West Coast girl and you will ALWAYS find me in a Patagonia fleece with my Blundstones/Birkenstocks on my feet! Ferry rides, ocean swims, salmon rolls, and fiddle leaf figs are some of my favourite things! I feel most at home near the ocean and swim almost every day.


I want to capture you, just as you are. So that one day, when someone’s looking at a photograph of you, they smile and say “that right there, is exactly what they were like."

 

a love letter to the west coast

For the days that you never want to end.


For the mountains that you climb, the oceans that you swim in, and the sunsets that make you feel alive.

 

01/03

Weddings

For Ceremonies under mountain peaks, vows in the forest, and receptions surrounded by everyone you love.

02/03

Adventure Elopements

A day all about you where there are moments that the earth seems vast. For the couples who want to find somewhere awe inspiring to get married and exchange vows surrounded by nature.

03/03

Couples Sessions

For the couples who want Sunrises, golden hour sunsets, belly laughs, quiet snuggles, sandy toes, and to run around barefoot in the forest.

"I'm proud to make my business a safe space for everybody. All forms of love are important, and all forms of love deserve to be documented in front of a camera. Everyone is welcome and celebrated in front of my lens, and I am proud to serve the BIPOC and LGBTQ+ communities 🌈"

A Place for Everyone

you, exactly as you are


The first thing you need to know about me is that I will never have you stand stiffly and force a smile at the camera.


I want my sessions to feel like a breath of fresh air- we're going to laugh, dance around, and drink in the views. There will be piggyback rides, soft kisses, and lots of snuggling. I'm here to document you and your love, exactly how it is.
