my name is Maura.
I am a planner currently striving to live in the moment, a hopeless romantic facing reality, and dreamer who refuses to settle. I identify with the enneagram type 3 & love adventures, tea lattes, and my 13.5 year old Maltese (Cherry, basically my first born child). I am currently in school studying Communications and living in my favorite city, Athens, Ga.
You can always find me in my room (I love my alone time) or with my best friends. I'll have a candle burning, The Office playing in the background, and my pup at my feet. I love healthy cooking, all natural skincare & yoga, so sometimes my friends make fun of me for being a little too "earthy", but I'm fine with it.
Photography is something that makes my heart so particularly happy. At every couples session and wedding I work to create beautiful art with people, for people, to capture time and to tell stories. Through my wedding business I have found myself reaching out to touch the all consuming emotion of love that we have on this earth among us. From all of the raw and hungry couples who I have been blessed to work with, I get butterflies from their smiles, chills from their stories and a tingling on the bottom of my feet as I capture their love from behind my camera. Read more about my photography journey here. Although this is my job, I hope to treat it as an act of service to all of my clients. I strive to deliver as much joy to my couples as they have delivered to me.
I believe my purpose is to be much more than a vendor, but an awesome part of your love story and possibly your life. If you agree, then I am your photographer.
