Background: When I photographed my first wedding in 2004 as a second photographer with my sister-in-law, I knew I was in love! Prior to that, I immersed myself in the arts studying Art History and Fine Art in college. I worked at several local Arts Councils and galleries in Annapolis, then as a location scout for the Maryland Film Office from 2003-2007. In 2008 I apprenticed with veteran wedding photographers in Las Vegas and Los Angeles learning studio lighting and mastering posing techniques to bring out your best self. I began working full time as a wedding and portrait photographer in Annapolis under my own company in 2009 and am currently an active member of Professional Photographers of America.
Reason: Love is truly what makes life worth living. I immerse myself in your wedding day to soak up all the wonderful emotions and little moments and transfer them to my photographs. My goal is for you to trust me completely so I can be an organic part of one of the most important days in your life. The best photographs come from a genuine comfort and ease to be yourself. Part of my job is to bring out the true you and have fun doing it! And remember, "If you don't look good, we don't look good" - Vidal Sassoon
Investment: Prices range from $2250 - $5700, so I prefer to chat with you prior to sending a quote. My base photography rate is $450/hour, which includes coverage by Maria and I, a web gallery ready two weeks after your wedding day, and the digital files. I use Cypress Albums for my proof boxes and albums. I higly encourage including prints and albums in your package. The final artwork is something you can hold and cherish for generations.
Born in Argentina, and currently working on a photography degree in the Annapolis area, Maria has been an incredible addition to the Kate Fine Art Photography team. When she is not photographing her own weddings as an associate photographer, you can find Maria providing secondary coverage with Kate. Her warmth, kindness and amazing talent is a joy to be around.
