I'm Maiya (like the month of may)

Hello friends! I'm so glad you're here!

I’m a year-round ocean swimmer, Tacofino lover, and future Kindergarten teacher. I feel most at home near the ocean and I will ALWAYS say yes to hiking a mountain or wandering through a forest!

I’m a champ at all-you-can-eat sushi and I’ve watched Grey's Anatomy, Gilmore Girls, and Criminal Minds an embarrassing number of times.

Like most adventurous Vancouver photographers- you'll usually find me in a Patagonia fleece with Blundstone/ Birkenstocks on my feet and too many cameras in my hands!

Weddings and elopements are incredibly important to me because they are such a celebration of life and love. My goal going into every wedding is to photograph it with heart. To make you feel as comfortable as possible, and to tell your story in a way that you can look back and go, “that photo reminds me of exactly how that felt”. 

"So when you spend time with your photographs, I hope at least some of them remind you: even if you can't go back to how things were, you can still find where Light poured through"
