  • We hired Maria for our wedding on lake Como in Italy. We really wanted her to be our photographer, and asked how much it will be to go there. And she traveled there for free, we only payed for the pictures! She was the best! We love all of our pictures! She came to the villa a day before to see all the good places to take pictures and knew everything on the day of our wedding. We had just a small ceremony and then dinner with closest family and friends. If you are planning a wedding abroad, Maria should be your photographer!

  • Maria was awesome during my wedding day! She knew exactly what she was doing and made our picture taking experience very smooth! She is very energetic, friendly and has a great sense of humor! She was so easy to work with! My husband and I are beyond grateful and thankful for what she delivered. I would definitely recommend her for any kind of photo shoot you might need!

  • We chose Maria before we picked our venue. My fiancé and I agreed photography was the most important of all vendors. My maid of honor did a lot of research, narrowed down to 30 local photographers. We played a game with her research, she copied and pasted over 100 wedding photos from each of their sites and I was looking at hundreds of random wedding photos in a word document. Three photos really stood out to me. I knew whoever shot these images I would have to decide between to be our photographer. Turns out all three were Maria’s shots! I took my mom along the first time I met Maria. We were both in awe of her work and who she was as a person. When I saw her prints I secretly thought to myself, “Wow could I really have a beautiful image like this with my husband and I in it?” It seemed unimaginable! A lot of artists you meet may have amazing work, but lack of personality. Not only is her work stunning, she gives off the best vibes. When you meet people with a good heart who a... Read more

  • Working with Maria was so great! She was extremely professional and friendly from beginning to end. We met up with her for brunch to do our initial consultation and homework, and she instantly put us at ease with her calm and funny personality. We had a small, intimate ceremony with family, and she captured so many wonderful moments within the short timeframe. Our families really enjoyed working with her during the formal pre-ceremony photos. After the ceremony, she had the two of us do some more posed and artistic shots. Neither of us enjoy taking photos much, but the posing felt very natural and easy. She was also very discreet and unobtrusive during the ceremony. I was most looking forward to candids from the ceremony, and she managed to take several great shots without me noticing. Best of all, she had several teasers available for us that same night! Wedding planning can be stressful, but photography was definitely one of the stress-free areas thanks to her.

  • Maria is BEYOND amazing!! Since the moment we booked her, she made us feel the like most important people ever. Not only is her work amazing, but she is a wonderful person as well. She made our wedding so comfortable and stress free. Maria and her team were very responsive during the entire process, which was so comforting! They made our engagement and wedding day more perfect than we could ever imagine. We are so honored to have her as our photographer, and highly recommend for every bride and groom to have Maria capture the most memorable day of their lives!

  • Maria is the best!! Her rates are more than fair, she is super flexible and so much fun to work with. But on top of all that, she's the nicest person, after our walk through where we found all the spots to have photos taken, we stayed and chatted about our travels for almost an hour! I was worried that my husband and I would get annoyed by all the fake posing you do for wedding photos, that feel totally un-natural and over composed, but Maria didn't do any of that. Yes she had us pose in different ways, but it was quick and easy and natural feeling. She took an amazing amount of photos in a very short amount of time, she captured the mood and feel of the whole wedding (and actually made it look even better than it was) and we never even knew where she was half the time, she was like a ninja. You get some teaser photos just a couple of days after the wedding, which is so fun to be able to relive the moments right away and then the whole package is just a month after. I would recommend ...

  • Maria was amazing! She captured us and our venue perfectly. It was so hot on our wedding day and she rolled with it. We have only seen our teaser photos (which she had ready to show us AT OUR RECEPTION!!) and we are already in love. I'm excited to see the rest. I would hire her again in a heat beat. THANK YOU!!

  • Maria is a rare gem in the photography industry. My wedding pictures were my number 1 priority - afterall, they are the only things from the actual day that will last forever (next to the love of course). When the time came to choose a photographer, I interviewed upwards of 8 vendors and something was just always missing from each. Personality, drive, creativity, passion -- my photographer needed to be someone I could fully relate to and trust to capture all the details I was working so hard to incorporate. When I met Maria, she showed us her pictures online that no other photographer had. Her passion and her personality shined through her photos. She is so easy to work with, willing to make changes to be sure you are 200% happy, and does everything with such an ease and comfort that when all is said and done, - you wonder if she did anything at all because it is that easy!--- believe me - she will not only have done her job - she will exceed your expectations ten fold!! Maria is an ar... Read more

  • Maria took pictures of our wedding and she was great, so fun to be around and helpful! The whole process was very well-organized and pleasant. We just walked around, laughed, kissed and Maria was with us. As a result we got beautiful and very natural-looking pictures, and so fast! Maria also does a military discount, that really helped us to get more services at a better price. Would recommend Maria to anyone!

  • My wedding photos came out perfect! Maria captured our special day in the best way. She was so sweet and flexible as I had to take my photos at a different location from Where my ceremony and reception took place! She also took the time to send our photos in the prettiest package which I truly appreciated!

  • I found Maria for my family photoshoot, and she is simply the best! So when I needed photographer for my wedding, my decision was very quick) The way how she sees your best angles is just amazing! I didn't know that I can look so beautiful on pictures))) She was able to catch every little emotion on her photos; and her skills of the photo editing are very good as well!

  • Very professional, fun and creative person. It was almost impossible to convince my husband for Photoshoot. But once we met Maria this process turns out as one of the funniest evening. She manage all process so well, made it so easy and natural. We enjoy the process and had a lot of fun. When we received our photos - completely fall in love with this lady and her work. She catched our personality, our characters and mood. She is very talented photographer and great person. Mariya became our family photographer.

  • Will and I had dated for 7 years before we got married and were engaged for 2. We poured our heart and soul into planning every little detail of your wedding! Of course we needed someone to capture it perfectly. And I am so happy I found Maria! She did such an awesome job taking pictures of absolutely everything: all the details that even I forgot about, all the emotional moments and of course the stunning portraits! If you have no experience in taking photos like we didn’t, don’t worry, Maria will lead you through it and make you look like professional models. We couldn’t be any more happy with our pictures! Up to this day I tear up looking at our photos and reliving those perfect moments!

  • My husband and I had hired Maria for our destination wedding in Puerto Rico on August 2016. We cannot say enough great things about our experience with Maria from beginning to end. We decided to have a destination wedding and initially I was worried because of travel fees but Maria’s travel fee policy is very reasonable. She actually only charged us for the wedding itself! Maria arrived a day early and spent some time exploring the area and finding the perfect location for our first look and other photos. Our wedding party and family really enjoyed working with Maria, and her calm, easygoing personality makes people feel at ease while they’re being photographed. Overall, it was as perfect an experience as we could have hoped for. We love the pictures and we are so glad we went with ForgetMeNot Photography. Now we have hundreds of amazing pictures that will help us cherish the memories of such a great moment. We highly recommend choosing Maria for your wedding.
