My Philosophy


I'm a firm believer in hiring a photographer that feels like a friend.


I think it must be the weirdest feeling in the world to have a stranger show up on your wedding day that you've never met before, and shove a camera in your face for 10 hours. That's why a huge part of my process is making sure that we hop on Facetime calls and meet in person before your wedding! By the time we get to your wedding day- I hope that I feel more like a friend than a vendor!


That's also a really big reason that I always recommend engagement sessions! You get a chance to meet me, get in front of my lens, and figure out what this is all about. So many of my engagement sessions have turned into hangouts, and I absolutely love that.


I call my business "a business of heart". Because of this, I have a rule that I will not sign a wedding contract or take a deposit from anyone I haven't met face to face before. Because at the end of the day, this is a big investment for you and I want to make sure that you're stoked about working together! Whether it's a quick Facetime call, a hangout at the breweries, or a coffee date- I love to meet my clients first, so that you know exactly what you're investing in :)

A Place for Everyone

I'm proud to make my business a safe space for everybody. All forms of love are important, and all forms of love should be documented in front of a camera. I welcome the BIPOC and LGBTQ+ communities in front of my lens, and I'm honoured to tell all stories.

Love Letters


"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!"


-Charlotte & Ross, September 2021


Got questions? I've got answers!

We're super awkward in front of the camera and don't know what to do

Vix ut utinam feugait. Eu scribentur liberavisse nec. Dico fugit nostro cu pri, no putent nemore mel, ius at minim molestiae

Do you have second shooters? Why are they so great?

I include a second shooter in all of my 8 and 10 hour Wedding packages because of how invaluable they are! Second shooters provide another unique perspective of your day and ensure that we can get all the shots to tell your story. They can help to capture the getting ready process of the other spouse, provide multiple angles of your ceremony, and assist in wrangling your family for formal portraits!

When I’m hiring second shooters- I am extremely picky! I only work with photographers that I trust, and that are in the wedding business themselves! So rest assured, I hire some pretty awesome people :)

What if it rains?

We live in Vancouver so that’s always a possibility! I am ready to shoot your day, no matter how you want to proceed! If you want to go run around in the rain and embrace the wild, and crazy, then I’ll be right there beside you with a handful of clear umbrellas! If you want to figure out a backup plan and move this party inside, we can do that too! You know what they say, rain is a sign of good luck on a wedding day! My best advice is to roll with the flow and enjoy your wedding day with all your heart

How soon do we get our photos?

I know how exciting and exhilarating wedding days are, and I always try to get you some sneak peeks within 48 hours so you have something share with friends and family!

Couples and family sessions are delivered within 3 weeks. Elopements are delivered within 6 weeks, and full wedding galleries are delivered within 8-10 weeks

Can we have our raw images?

I do not deliver any raw images. A huge part of my photography process is the culling and editing! Similar to how a baker would not sell raw dough, photographers do not give out raw images. We need to give them some love, and bake them before we deliver them to you!

What gear do you shoot with?

I shoot with two Sony A7iii's, and I'm a prime lens lover, so I'm forever using my 35mm 1.4 and 85mm 1.8.

Do you backup our photos?

I absolutely do! Everything I shoot at weddings is automatically stored on 2 separate memory cards. When I get home, your images are copied to two separate hard drives, and the originals are always kept on the memory cards until your full gallery has been delivered.

So basically, I have backups upon backups to make sure I never lose your images!

Can I add on extra hours to my package?

Do you ever shoot indoors? How are you with flash?

How long have you been shooting weddings?
