Adventurous, joyful, and laid back is how Maria of Maria Grace Photography describes her most ideal wedding couple, especially at that first moment of meeting through the engagement session to the wedding day itself... and even past the big day into married life!
"My favorite part of a wedding is when couples choose to have a first look. It is the most intimate part of a wedding day, and it is just a time for the bride and groom to spend together without any stress or anyone else around.
I also really love the reception and seeing everyone have a great time! Sometimes my second photographer (who happens to be my husband!) pulls me out on the dance floor during a slow song... and well, I don't mind at all about that!"
A fun fact about Maria is that she grew up in a foreign country and spent nine years living overseas, so she actually knew how to speak another language fluently by the time she was four years old! You'll have to ask her what kinds of books she likes to read because it's a pretty diverse selection!
When Maria isn't on location for a wedding or engagement session, this photog considers herself an East Coast hippy who loves visiting finding local and organic treats at restaurants and farmers markets in the area. She also enjoys running either through her neighborhood, on the Noland Trail in Newport News, or somewhere new!
