“Travelling to Maui for our wedding from Australia and Canada, my husband and I were worried about finding vendors, specifically a photographer. As soon as we contacted Mariah, our worries were put to rest – she’s lovely! And she and her husband Peter were just as amazing when we met them on our wedding day. They were both part of the whole day and made us feel comfortable in every photo. We LOVE the photos, and had sooo many compliments regarding the photos and the talent and creativity of our photographer! Could not recommend her more highly – beautiful people!

Mariah we’ll let you know when we’re coming back to Maui for a vow renewal 🙂

THANK YOU!! ” — Alex and Ted, Australia

Mariah,  OMG ~ I am so excited.  These are fantastic!   Nick and I were hoping to have a handful of good pics but these are incredible… far exceeding our expectations.  I cannot thank you enough.  Nick and I have been together for 15 years and most of our photos are horrendous (even our wedding pictures 🙁 ); so bad that the last photo we took together was MANY YEARS ago.  Thank you again.  My heart is very happy and extremely grateful!” — Koshell Family, Texas 

I’ve been meaning to email you for days! The photos are so so gorgeous! You did such a beautiful job. Thank you so much for finishing the photos in your estimated turn around time. My family loved them too, and my dad especially kept going on and on about how special they were 🙂 I got the package you sent and it was adorable.Thank you so much for everything. I really love seeing my family through another artist’s eyes. Your skill and vision is not lost on us 🙂

Love, Michelle”

“We are from Toronto, Canada and found Mariah through the internet – based on her website/reviews, that is how we selected her.

Our experience with Mariah has been EXCELLENT – from beginning to end. We had our engagement photos done in Maui, but to make it more complicated, the photo shoot also incorporated a surprise element (the proposal) which required additional planning/coordination. To make it even more complicated, all the planning/coordination was done remotely through e-mail! Having said that, Mariah went above and beyond our expectations – she was extremely helpful in the planning stage. My fiance received same-day responses on all my inquiries (which was a lot!) and she had an extremely positive attitude throughout – she even helped give us suggestions/recommendations on accommodations/restaurants and other non-photo shoot related things which were great! Her beautiful spirit and nature really shone through the photos we received and we can tell that she LOVES photography and capturing memories for people.

On the day of, the surprise proposal photo shoot went smoothly thanks to all the planning that went into it before. When we did our actual photos, we were a bit nervous as we’ve never done one before but she was so good at guiding us and making us feel comfortable throughout the session.

Finally, the most important part is the photos – and they were incredible! We are really pleased with the final product we received. We were a bit skeptical as to how the photos would turn out due to weather conditions (was not the best weather), however, the photos were so good that you couldn’t even tell! Not sure what magic she did but we are extremely pleased with it.

Overall, HIGHLY recommend anyone considering having professional photos done that you should do it with Mariah – you will NOT regret this decision.

Mariah – thank you again for all your help, we will now have memorable photos to share with family/friends and have for ourselves for the rest of our lives! The surprise proposal idea was fantastic and turned out really well, thank you for suggesting that and executing it so well.” — Cynthia H.

“On our first trip to Maui, my husband and I decided it would be a great place to renew our wedding vows. It was very last minute, but I found Mariah’s website and emailed her with my phone number and a brief description of what I was looking for — a photographer, an officiant, and a secluded beach. She called me back within a few minutes. I explained that my husband and I wanted a photographer to take photos of our vow renewal with our family on the beach but we also wanted someone to renew our vows, possibly someone Hawaiian that played the guitar or ukulele. Within two or three days, she found a beautiful beach and an amazing officiant that played the guitar and sang to us during the ceremony. Most importantly, she took the most beautiful and imaginative photographs. It was a great experience and we cherish the photographs of our amazing trip. She was more that a great photographer – she planned the whole ceremony on very short notice and made it fun and relaxing! My husband and I would highly recommend her!” — Stephanie R.

“We were going to Maui and planning have our photos taken for our pre-wedding pictures. After googling countless websites on “Maui Professional photographer”. We stumbled across Mariah’s Website and instantly her photos caught our eyes. Unlike a lot of photographer who’s photos still looked old fashioned and boring. Mariah’s photo has a more modern and more romantic feel to it.

The whole process was simple and Mariah was very helpful. It was our first time in Maui so we asked Mariah for a location recommendation. We couldn’t be more happy with our photoshot location. During the date of the photoshot before we even got to the Beach, Mariah was already there waiting for us. And the whole session was perfect. Plus she had a great sense of humor which made the whole photoshot go by seamlessly for us.

When we got our photos, we couldn’t be more happier. My fiance was at work and she told me she was smiling like a idiot looking at the pictures.

All I can say is that I am glad I picked Mariah for our photoshot. My perfectionist other half was extremely satisfied too.” — Alan M.

“As soon as I pulled into our wedding site in Maui it began to pour down rain. Me being the perfectionist and had waited so long for my perfect day, began to freak out. Mariah was so welcoming and instantly put me into comfort. She knew exactly how to get my mind into other places than just focus on the drenching rain outside. She was so laid back and knew exactly what she was doing. The rain stopped just in time for our beautiful ceremony. Mariah got all of the shots I was wanting and turned them out even better than I could have imagined! She knew I needed the photos done by my upcoming reception back home and she had them done even before I left Maui! She is a total gem! I would literally travel back to Maui just to have her photograph other sessions for me and that is 4000 miles away!! What a blessing she was to our wedding day!” — Trisha S.

“Mariah was a delight to work with. She is very professional and has a heart of gold. She captured every moment of my parents vow renewal and we couldn’t be more thrilled with the pictures. She even helped us plan the event- we didn’t know who to contact for everything and she led us in the perfect direction and we used all of her recommendations. It ended up being a perfect night and we were SO lucky to find Mariah to capture every moment- she is truly talented in photography. I only wish she lived closer so she could continue to capture my friends and familys special events. Guess we’ll have to come back to Hawaii again soon to get pictures done by her. If you are going to Maui, you will Not be disappointed by Mariah!” — Jenna D.

“We couldn’t be more satisfied with our decision to hire Mariah as our photographer. She was so helpful in finding the right location for our shoot. I really appreciate her willingness to work with us and the patience she exhibited. She made great suggestions and above all the photos are stunning. Mariah is a very patient and kind individual with a very calming presence, which helps you as a subject feel more at ease. It was a pleasure dealing with her. Not to mention her conscientious business practices and affordability.” — Ryan S.

“From the very first conversation over the phone, Mariah was extremely friendly and generous to offering insight on locations for our photo session. When our plans changed at the last minute from engagement pictures to a beach side wedding, she jumped to our rescue to provide us with several options (with descriptions) for the perfect officiant. Mariah was generous with our time and never did we fell rushed during our session. Our pictures were amazing. Love this photographer and would recommend her to everyone! A+++++” — Yun Mi Y.

“Mariah, you outdid yourself with our pictures. You are so talented not only in photography, but also in connecting with your clients. Your personality is just lovely and your pictures are amazing. Thank you for capturing these moments for us – AMAZING! Hope to see you in another 10 years for our 20th!” — Betsy C.
