about me

Originally from Argentina, Maria is an independent documentary photographer based in Santa Barbara, California. She immediately knew that she had found her passion after she began photographing weddings at the request of friends. While her style is documentary in nature, she draws upon her appreciation of portraiture and natural light to complete each wedding story. When you put a camera in her hands, she seemingly becomes invisible, searching for a unique vantage point from which to photograph what may look like a typical scene to others.
She wants her clients to get to know her. She wants them to feel confident that she is the best choice for them, and when they email or call her she will be the one that caters to their individual needs. It is a pleasure for her to capture the energy, the emotions and the true spirit of your event. She has the uncanny ability to find humor in small moments and capture the beauty of delicate details.
Her job is her life and she loves it! She is inspired by beauty, adventure and life.

She is available to travel nationally and internationally.
