"Maria Maria Maria…

I can't stop looking at our photos. I never thought that I would be the type of person who goes back again and again to look at the past. But I am completely mesmerised and enchanted by our stunning photos. They make me so happy inside, and I want to look at them ALLLLLL the time!"

It's so good To have you here.

I am Maria, a wedding photographer based in Sevenoaks, Kent. I'm an adventurer at heart. I have travelled and love to travel a lot. Fun fact, driving from London to Mongolia via Iran and all the -stans (like Uzbekistan) takes 41 days, lots of tea, and some spare suspensions. Speaking Russian also helps.

I am super close to my family, although none of them are in the UK. We are cuddlers and huggers and I'll admit it, I cry at Disney Films. I didn't used to, like ever, but my first pregnancy turned me into a puddle, and my mum's and best friend's deaths a couple of years ago just broke that dam forever. Don't even fecking get me started on the Lion King or Bambi. Just why?!

Nick is my anchor, and my kids & cats make me larf.

I still like to write letters and read real books.

I'm often attracted to the emotions shown between generations, but also the fun that kids have at weddings. They are mental!

Yes, I want you to love my photos, but I also want you to like me as a person, because I find it hard to photograph people I don't really connect with. Photography for me is not about the technical motions. I feel a lot in the work I produce and it's personal to every client.
