I found her via instagram. Maria is a truly talented photographer - her photos are just amazing like medieval paintings. On the day of my wedding, she was a leader of my wedding party. Super artistic. She drove me and my husband to get up early to take photos even the day after the wedding. We were very tired but so glad we did it - loved our after wedding photos.
