"We truly couldn’t have imagined anyone else to photograph our engagement and wedding day. I was extremely nervous
that we wouldn't find a photographer that I wouldn’t feel awkward or uncomfortable around until we met Maiya. Not only is she an amazing photographer, she is an amazing human. I’ve never met anyone so genuinely happy, humble, and down to earth and I think that is why she makes you feel automatically comfortable around her. We saw her recently and I wasn’t expecting Maiya to remember all of our wedding details but she remembered everything. She made us feel so important. I would recommend Maiya to anyone, she is truly the best!
My husband and I interviewed a few different photographers and we honestly didn’t know what we were necessarily looking for. We didn’t seem to click with any of the other photographers except for Maiya. She was calm, listened to us and our vision, didn't try to upsell us, and gave us really good recommendations. We knew right after our initial meeting that we had found our photographer.
In a good way, there were no boundaries. She held my hand while I climbed through bushes to access an amazing photo spot, she checked my armpits for deodorant clumps throughout the day, laughed with us, and helped us get through awkward family encounters. She was basically my built-in best friend for the day.
When we got our wedding day album back, I literally couldn’t believe it was us and our friends/family in those photos. She captured all of us in a way that reflected our happiness, quirkiness, and love for each other. She truly knows how to make your personality shine in photos."

"Maiya was an absolute GEM to work with for my wedding. From the minute I contacted her interested in her services, she was extremely responsive and so accommodating to all of my requests. Where she really stood out though, was on the actual day of my wedding. She was so attentive to everything I needed, my wedding party needed, and even what we needed at the venue, which she did not have to do. She came prepared with everything a bride would need in case of an emergency (scissors, pins, etc.) which was amazing.
She made us feel extremely comfortable and allowed us to have so much fun getting photographed. When your photographer cries multiple times throughout the wedding, that's when you know she's invested in capturing every moment! I will 100% recommend her to everyone looking for a photographer!"

"I cannot recommend Maiya enough!! She was our photographer for our wedding in September 2021, and I knew as soon as we met her that she was exactly what we were looking for. Her communication and flexibility were what we needed in a very stressful and unknown time, and her style of photography and editing is flawless. We had a sunset engagement shoot several months before the wedding and it was so fun and easy to be shot by Maiya. She had her own creative & experienced ideas but also let us do our thing and have our input.
Let me tell you, the photos from the engagement shoot and the wedding could not have been more perfect. They were romantic, candid, fun, and TONS of them! She and her second shooter at the wedding did an incredible job of getting photos of literally everyone. We still to this day get compliments from our guests. On a practical note, Maiya's pricing was also very reasonable and worth every penny. I will continue to use Maiya at any opportunity I can. If you're looking for a wedding photographer, Maiya is your girl!!"

"Maiya was our wedding photographer this past summer on August 14th 2021. Maiya went above & beyond for us every step of the way. She was extremely communicative and professional leading up to our big day and was open & flexible with all of our wedding day plans. Before the wedding, Maiya met us at our backyard venue multiple times to check out the lighting and scope out the perfect spots for our photos - this was totally not expected but so appreciated!
On the day of the event Maiya was incredible! She was so beyond helpful with me even with adjusting my dress for photos and making sure I was comfortable and happy with all of the shots we were able to take. Our wedding party and families loved her and she took all of the pain out of posing for photos in the heat by being efficient and fun. Towards the end of the night, we were running behind schedule but Maiya offered to stay late and ensure she got photos of all of the most important moments we hoped for. I would highly recommend Maiya for all of your photography needs!"

“We couldn’t be happier with the photos Maiya took on our wedding day, they are absolutely stunning! She took the time to get to know us and truly captured all our special moments throughout the day so perfectly. We really didn’t know exactly what we wanted so we put our trust in Maiya and were certainly in good hands! She gave us a beautiful & natural collection of photos that will help us to relive our special day for years to come – thank you Maiya for your professionalism and artistry.”

"Maiya was such a joy to work with for my wedding! She was recommended to my husband and I by a friend, because we were having a hard time finding a last-minute photographer, and I can truly say she was one of the highlights of our day. She is really amazing at getting you to smile and making you feel comfortable in front of the camera, and I couldn't recommend her enough!"

"Maiya was so wonderful to work with for our mountain-top elopement! She has such a lovely personality and energy that blended seamlessly into our intimate wedding day. She captured the ceremony so beautifully, and when it came to taking couple and family photos afterwards she made the whole experience feel natural and tons of fun, even though we are both normally a little awkward in front of the camera! This, combined with her talent and creativity led to some incredible images that we will treasure for the rest of our lives. Thank you so much Maiya!"

"Seriously… no words can describe these photos.. we have spent the last several hours just POURING over them and sharing them with our families!!
We can’t express enough how much we appreciate the gorgeousness of these photos and that Maiya spent so much time with us to capture these (not to mention braving a horribly bumpy road and one of the coldest days of the year)! I cannot wait to share our wedding with her!!!"

"I was looking for a photographer who would capture candid, natural photos for our outdoor elopement in Vancouver. My friend had worked with Maiya for her wedding/engagement photos and she highly recommended her. She said that Maiya is very personable and that she will work with me to make something work for me. I browsed her photos on her Instagram and her website, and the warmth and the natural tone of her photos stood out to me. Her sunset photos were breathtakingly beautiful.
Correspondence with Maiya was super easy, we instantly felt at ease with her. I had told Maiya that I wanted a combination of some beach shots and forest shots, and Maiya scouted out the perfect trail for us. It encompassed so many different scenarios within a short walk, we could make the most out of our photo session! My husband and I are not the most camera-ready people, but we felt so comfortable around Maiya. She gave us lots of suggestions on poses while trying to make sure that it captures the essence of who we are as people and as a couple. We had a lot of fun during the photoshoot.
Maiya sent us our sneak peek within 24 hours of the photoshoot. I really appreciated this as all of us were curious how the photos turned out, still high from the day of the ceremony. It was also nice to be able to share these photos from the sneak peek with friends and families who were waiting for the update after the ceremony.
We loved our final gallery. As expected, the colors and the tones of the photos are so beautiful. Also, they make us look so good yet they still look natural and candid."
