Thanks for wanting to know who the girl behind the camera is. I am very happy you are here!

I am a German-American but Mallorca is where my heart is. I live on this beautiful mediterranean island with my tattoo artist husband and our 5 year old son Indy. We have been married for almost 14 years and moved to Mallorca from Texas, right after our son was born. One day, when we were looking at a world map our finger landed on this island and we instantly fell in love with the idea of living the slow-paced Spanish life. Mallorca is like an endless well of inspiration for us. A good day starts with a happy giggly kid, sunshine and a nice cup of coffee, and a great day ends with friends and family gathered around the dinner table, sharing stories and a homemade meal. I love cooking plant-based dishes and trying out new recipes. 80s music is my jam but there is quite a lot of Spanish guitar being played at our house and I don’t mind it 🙂 I believe in soul mates, life-changing journeys and trusting my intuition. I love meeting new people and listening to their stories, hopes and dreams.

My photography has always been driven by the desire to make life’s best moments last. Documenting a couple’s wedding is an experience I wholeheartedly enjoy. I understand that the images I take will serve as your window back in time and that is a job I don’t take lightly. Your trust in my craft is the key to my work and a warm personal connection is what fuels me creatively. I have a calm and easy going attitude that instantly puts my clients at ease. My photography style is often described as a mix of editorial, photojournalistic and fine art. Ultimately these are all just tools, what I really want to give you is a gallery that not only shows the highlights of your day but also the fine nuances and unstaged moments in between.

What my clients are saying:

“Thank you so much for our beautiful pictures!!!!!

Looking through them made us laugh and cry at the same time and we are so happy we chose you to capture these moments for us – you did a fantastic job not only with making us feel comfortable on the day, being so discreet we often forgot you were there and finally giving us such a beautiful final product. You are nothing short of amazing Maria – please keep doing the important work you are doing, bringing so much happiness to couples who are lucky to engage you for their big day!”

“Alex and I were so excited to receive these photos and they did NOT disappoint! You really captured not only great photos but memorable moments and our guest’s personalities perfectly. It was such a pleasure to work with you and so easy! We wish we could do it all over again 😉 I hope our paths cross in the near future and in the meantime, these photos are a great reminder of your beautiful work and such a special time for us.”

 – Kat & Alex, Los Angeles, USA

“Maria’s seemingly effortless talent behind the lens is equaled by her kind, serene nature – the combination of which allows her to access and capture the veiled intimacy that exists between a couple, as well as the deep love that ties them to those who share in their wedding day.”

 – Katharine & Jamal Dayem, Calgary, Canada
