  • I concur with everyone’s review on Mariana Calderon Photography! I am SUPER glad I hired her for my engagement session. I did my research before I reached out to her. When I saw her work on social media and website, I knew I had to hire her. When I first met her in person, we hugged! I felt like I’ve known her for a long time. We started our session at a nice restaurant/bar in Napa and she captured some great photos of us. Our session went over a little bit longer because we had so much fun. She made us feel very comfortable the whole time. After the session, I received a few sneak peeks of our shoot the next day maybe because I bugged her a little bit (haha) but she was very responsive. I loved the photos so much that I could not stop looking at them (*happy cry* - hahaha). We shared the sneak peeks to our loved ones, and they loved them too! I would TOTALLY recommend her! We do look forward to working with her again in the future if we come back to Napa. In the meantime, I... Read more

  • Mariana was great to work with! She organized two different settings for our engagement photo shoot and the pictures turned out great. She was very professional and responsive which made it very easy for me to set things up from Boston. She was and took pictures to capture our relationship and personality. I would highly recommend her.

  • This review is long overdue. I first found Mariana after reading all of the amazing reviews on Wedding Wire. Everyone is right -- Mariana is an absolute gem. From the moment I met her, she made me feel like a friend and as someone who hates the camera, she immediately made me feel at ease. Mariana did our engagement shoot last fall (and sent us teasers that night!), and is shooting my wedding in 2 weeks! She came with me to the venue to scout out the best locations for photos, and sent me a detailed shot list and timeline of her plans for the day of. Do yourself a favor and hire Mariana now....I feel so lucky heading into my wedding knowing that Mariana will be capturing it -- I don't have to worry, and I know the pictures will be amazing!

  • Words can't adequately describe how phenomenal Mariana is! She is the perfect mix of professional and an artist. My husband an I met her in Napa, and after I had researched an insane amount of photographers, we booked her to take our anniversary photos there. Mariana exceeded any expectations I had of a photographer. She picked the perfect location, the lighting was exquisite, and she made the whole experience something we could authentically enjoy. She put us at ease and made us feel like a million bucks, so we were really relaxed- and our photos showed our genuine personalities. We had such a blast during the shoot, and seeing the pictures was such a gift. Her work is of the highest quality. She has a killer eye for photography and a personality that sets her apart from so many others. I really can't say enough great things about her and her work. If it had it my way, she would be our photographer for life! Mariana is the best in the business!

  • As I've mentioned to literally anyone who will listen to me, Mariana is an insanely talented photographer and an absolute gem of a human. From our very first phone call, it felt like we just clicked, and every conversation after that put me at such ease about the whole wedding planning process. Before we'd even signed a contract, Mariana had devoted time to researching our wedding day, letting me know what time sunset would begin and when I should start hair and makeup. Mariana knows exactly what to do to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera, making you more "you"—not what a bride and groom "should" look like. Her pictures are dreamy and candid, while still including the classic shots your parents will want to hang up. She's punctual, creative, and has the best attention to detail, something that comes in handy during the planning process and is evident in all the photos you get. (Speaking of which, she was sending us sneak peeks less than 24 hours after the wedding!) ... Read more

  • From the first interaction with Mariana we knew we HAD to book her as our wedding photographer. She was bursting with excitement and positivity in the wedding vendor interview that translated into a truly enjoyable photography session on our wedding day. You can't teach someone to be that personable. Mariana has a natural gift to make couples feel comfortable and bring out their best smiles. She worked with us to create a personalized photography plan for the big day. Mariana arrived early, and directed the wedding party with grace and ease. We received the hi-res photos via an easy to use online directory, and they were perfect! Seriously amazing! Thank you Mariana for capturing so many memories for us!

  • Mariana did our wedding photos for our fall vineyard/golf course wedding. What a fabulous experience! I told her exactly what I wanted to be photographed and what I didn't care about, and she did exactly that! As we live out of state, all of our communication before the wedding was via telephone or text. She was very quick to respond and easy to collaborate ideas with. Once we met, she made the effort to get to know my partner and myself and was very pleasant to work with. Many guests complimented her sweet and easy-going personality during the wedding! All this talk and I haven't even gotten to the photos. They were AMAZING. We chose Napa because of the colors and scenery and all the photos really made these pop! I can't wait to get these printed and around our home, they are show-stopping! All this and her services were VERY reasonably priced. We were promised at least 300 photos but ended up with over 600 photos, all as perfect as the last. I hope I get the chance to work wi... Read more

  • Mariana was truly a joy to work with! She was flexible in working with us in a way to capture the vision we had for our wedding photos. She made us feel so comfortable during our Sunset photos at our venue and really captured the emotion in us and our guests on that day. She definitely provided us with some great memories of our special day. We would absolutely work with her again in the future!!

  • Mariana brought this energy to the photo shoot that made us feel so comfortable posing. She was extremely accommodating and very open-minded to our ideas. Her budget-friendly prices were a huge help to us, and will definitely hire her again if we ever find ourselves in Napa valley.

  • When we first met Mariana, we absolutely knew she had to be our photographer and we would not have had it any other way. She captured every beautiful moment. Mariana is the sweetest, most down to earth photographer, and makes you feel so comfortable even though you may be camera shy. Our engagement and wedding photos were everything I envisioned. She is very detailed and gets to know you personally. Our family and friends absolutely loved her too! It was a pleasure having Mariana be part of our wedding! We look forward to working with Mariana again and have her capture our special life moments.

  • Mariana photographed both our engagement and wedding photos. She is amazing and we could not have chosen a better photographer to document these two special milestones. All the photos came out stunning, we couldn’t be happier. We will cherish them always. Mariana has a wonderful personality, is super sweet, down-to-earth and really knows how to make you feel at ease. We are really grateful that we got to work with you. Thank you so much!

  • Mariana, where do I start. My fiance and I had her do our engagement photos recently and she is absolutely incredible. She is so talented not only with the camera but also with the couple, she makes you feel comfortable and captures the real moments between you and your loved one. She guides you but also lets you do the things that are natural between the two of you. I would recommend Mariana to every single person that asks me for the best photographer. She is knowledgeable, real, personable, incredibly talented and kind. I can't wait to see the rest of my photos because i already know they are going to be amazing. Thank you times a million for capturing our love.

  • Mariana was amazing and did an outstanding job at our wedding! After a debacle with a different photography company, we had to find a new photographer and was introduced to Mariana by our wedding coordinator. At first we were a little apprehensive about hiring someone without being able to meet them in person (we moved from CA to CO) and knowing that we wouldn't see them until the wedding, but Mariana squelched all our fears and concerns. She had multiple phone calls with us, took the time to learn about our love story, ask questions about what type of photos we wanted and help allay our fears about being in the spotlight for an entire day. Flash forward to the wedding day, and Mariana's personality, skill and friendliness won us over from the start. Her passion for photographer is clear, but her ability to connect with her customers is what makes her a cut above the rest. Mariana, thank you for making our wedding day amazing - we love the photos!

    Thank you Brett for the kind review! I absolutely loved meeting/working with you and Ashley. You are such a beautiful couple inside and out. I had a wonderful time at your wedding and I loved how creative you were with every single detail. It was certainly a highlight of 2019! :)

  • My husband and I were recently married in Napa Valley. While planning the wedding from the Houston area, we didn't know where to start searching for a photographer. Mariana came highly recommended and totally exceeded our expectations. She managed to capture the beauty of every single moment and the photos were absolutely breathtaking. She's such a natural photographer and we truly enjoyed having her around. She was like part of our family. We love her dearly!

    Joanna, thank you so much for the kind review! Your wedding was absolutely magical. I'm honored to have documented it and thrilled to have met you and Alvin!
