Your Vacation Photographer in Florence: Meet Maria

Meet Maria

I am a natural light, portrait-addicted photographer who is also in love with fashion photography! I am talkative, witty and creative. I love everything unusual and aesthetically beautiful. I strive to capture true emotions and real connection between people. Every smile, touch, and wink is magical and I do my best to catch these special moments with my camera.  

Three Things

  1. I used to work in an office, but I soon understood that I wasn't made for that life, so in 2010, I quit and bought a ticket to Italy. That's how & where my passion for photography was born.
  2. I couldn't live without my passport - because without it, I wouldn't be able to see all that awesomeness our planet has to show!
  3. My friends tell me I have a monkey mind. While I am trying to get rid of it, they find it funny, because I always have 100 topics to discuss at the same time! 

Favourite Place to Shoot in Florence

Customer Love for Maria

"Our photographer, Maria, was great. We are not the most comfortable in front of the camera, but she made us feel comfortable and made us look like models! She definitely captured the feel that we wanted. Everyone loves them." - Leah
