Maria is absolutely amazing. Not only is she very professional, but her photography is out of this world. I LOVE candids so when I saw Maria's pictures I knew that she was the photographer for me. Maria arrived to my wedding early and starting shooting immediately, which just shows her genuine character and caring for her clients. I got married 3 weeks ago and I received my entire edited online photo album last night. My photos are outstanding! Her prices are reasonable and the quality of pictures and the customer service that you will receive is the best of the best. Choose Maria Angela!!!

When planning my wedding and vendors, I may have spent the most time trying to decide on a photographer. After looking at so many photographers' websites, all of the wedding pictures started to look the same. That is until I found Maria Angela! I immediately fell in love with her portfolio.

Leading up to the wedding, she made the process so easy and I knew I didn't have to worry about a thing. She is very professional, kind and personable. Several times before and during the wedding she checks in to make sure that you get all of the pictures that you want. Then she puts her creativity to work and captures all of the precious moments throughout the day. Looking through the pictures took me right back to all of the great moments of my wedding day. The pictures continue to put a smile on my face and bring a tear to my eye. Not to mention that I had all of my pictures less than a month after my wedding.

Words cannot express how impressed I am with Maria Angela, and I 100% recommend her!

Maria does absolutely amazing work! Once we got back from our honeymoon, the pictures were ready to be downloaded in only a week's time! We couldn't believe how fast the pictures were ready. And, we were absolutely amazed by all of the wonderful moments Maria was able to beautifully capture! Our wedding day was gone in a blink of an eye, but thanks to Maria and her incredible talent, we have pictures that will always vividly tell the story of the best day of our lives.

Maria did an amazing job capturing my daughters wedding day! She is a true artist and her photo journalistic style creates a story of a day that will never be forgotten and the memories of friends, family and loved ones will be treasured always . Maria even came through in a moment of panic and pinned the father of bride corsage on at the church ! She is a true professional. We spent an entire weekend looking at all the photos , crying , laughing and so thankful we selected Maria !

Thank you Terri! Megan and Tim looked amazing and we had such a blast photographing their big day. :) (Terri had actually emailed me and stated that she meant to give me a full five stars however had trouble doing so when reviewing due to technical errors.)

Maria was our photographer for our wedding at Heinz Chapel and Carnegie Music Hall Foyer and we are beyond thrilled over the pictures!!! We just got the opportunity to see them all this week and we cannot stop looking at them! Every single one of them is beautiful and unique and we absolutely love them. Throughout the whole process Maria responded to emails or calls not even within the day but within the hour! She created a timeline for the wedding day that made everything run so smoothly and made changes whenever we needed her to. She definitely made sure to try and get all of the pictures we really wanted and also took some really amazing unexpected ones. You definitely will not be disappointed if you book Maria for your wedding day. She was a pleasure to work with!

Maria-Angela is a top notch photographer and as a bride who has been photographed professionally before I can tell the difference. I am from California and my fiancee' (now hubby) grew up and went to school in Pittsburgh, PA. I had never been to his hometown and I did extensive research on all the photographers in the area...many put up pretty looking websites with pictures of ring, shoes and food...which are all pretty easy to photograph since they don't move...it's when they have to shoot REAL people that it get's difficult. The lighting is soooo important and Maria-Angela has it all covered...it rained on our wedding day...but not to worry she is prepared for anything!! Easy to get along with, super cool but also VERY professional!! Having someone who tells suggests different poses (even if they feel silly at the time!! ) trust me you'll be glad later!! My only regret was that I didn't book her for the entire weekend!! My pictures are beyond amazing..thank you Maria (Ange!!)

I cannot speak highly enough of Maria Angela Photography. Maria was extremely well organized and easy to get a hold of even though when we started working together she lived in another state. She had great ideas for locations and was open minded to my suggestions. We loooved our wedding and engagement photographs. She did a very nice job of getting a wide variety of different types of shots (candids, romantic, silly, and traditional). I can honestly say there wasn't one photo I wasn’t thrilled with (and I am pretty picky). Maria also was sooo fast; we got to see all of our pictures a week after the wedding. I would highly recommend Maria Angela Photography!

I loved working with Maria from start to finish. During the planning process Maria was so easy to communicate with. She responded to emails in 24 hours or less (most of the time less)! On the day of our wedding Maria was professional and patient. I hardly knew she was there. The photos turned out beautiful. I was so worried about how they would turn out because we had heavy sea fog that set in during our ceremony and continued through our cocktail hour. However, I believe the pictures turned out just as fantastic (or better!) than if we would have had the sunset we were hoping for. Maria really captured us as a couple and why we picked our venue. We received our pictures only a few weeks after our wedding which I thought was a very quick turn around! We are so happy and grateful with Maria’s work.
