your new favorite third wheel!
hey y'all, i'm mariah
I bet you expect me to write something about how long I've been photographing, right? But really that isn't the important part. What's important is that I capture every belly laugh, every tear, every little moment of your love story from your engagement to your wedding. It's the fact that I will for sure cry during your vows and that my face will hurt for days after your wedding from smiling so big.
You will no longer be a stranger but a friend. I love capturing love in all its forms in a way that is truly authentic to you both and to you as a couple both on your wedding day and as your family grows. It's such a joy to share in your wedding day and your families' moments and milestones for years to come.
PHOTOGRAPHER. STORYTELLER. LOVER OF LIFE.
we all have a story.. here's mine.
My husband and I's love story is one of my favorites. When he asked me to marry him, he didn't actually ask that question. Haha To explain, I have to go back to early on when we were dating. We both were engineers working in the field in West Texas, so we worked hard for 14 days in a row to have 14 off. We took advantage of the time off and traveled to 7 countries in just a few months time, and we always called each other our adventure buddies.
So on a long weekend trip to Boston, we were walking along the boardwalk and spotted a floating boat dock. He took me down to the edge of the dock and while I was gazing at the ocean, he dropped to one knee. He asked me if I'd be his adventure buddy forever.
We were married in 2019 at Holy Ghost Catholic Church in Denver, Colorado and traveled to Singapore and the Maldives for our honeymoon. (We just barely got our honeymoon before the world shutdown!) The day we got back to the United States, we brought home a Goldendoodle puppy. We like to do all the life things at once. Haha
Now we've been married for 4 years and have a tiny adventure buddy in our son who was born in spring of 2022. We moved to Tulsa, Oklahoma in October of 2021 and absolutely love life in the Green Country.
I am a Catholic wedding photographer and understand how best to capture the nuptial Mass. I would absolutely love to celebrate more weddings within the Catholic community in Oklahoma.
In my past career life, I worked as a Chemical Engineer for over 11 years. I'm a very Type A, enneagram 3 personality and am super organized when it comes to capturing your wedding. I love to help my couples through the planning process whether than be helping with timelines or with vendor recommendations or with any other planning questions.

"IF I EVER GET MARRIED AGAIN (HOPEFULLY I DON'T), I WOULD HIRE MARIAH AGAIN AND AGAIN!"
Mariah photographed our wedding in Rocky Mountain National Park. She did a fantastic job with the entire process! She took incredible and memorable pictures at the perfect times during the ceremony and reception. The photo quality was excellent and the post processing followed suit. Her turnaround time was great after the wedding. If I ever get married again (hopefully I don't), I would hire Mariah again and again!
