Mariana first realized the incredible beauty of the world around her while growing up in her hometown in Bello Horizonte, Costa Rica. From a young age she dreamed of capturing that beauty through various forms of art but found her true passion when she picked up a camera for the first time. After traveling the world Mariana spent some time in California and fell particularly in love with the Napa Valley. She packed up her life and moved to California in pursuit of her dreams in photography and continues to be inspired by the beautiful scenery.

With a degree in Architecture, a technical background in design and a naturally gifted eye for photography, she brings an upbeat approach to every photo shoot and design project.

She is fluent in four languages (Spanish, English, French, Italian).

Besides photography, Mariana has worked extensively in graphic arts and has a passion for traditional art forms.

"I don't even know where to begin. Mariana exceeded our expectations in so many ways! She made our wedding day feel so special and seamless. She has such a positive and fun energy that makes you feel at ease and comfortable in front of the camera. She was one of the first to arrive at the venue and captured every moment, from getting ready, all the little details that she put together herself, to make sure we got all the bridesmaids, groomsmen, family photos, the private intimate first look moments, all the way up to dancing into the night! From what can be a busy and chaotic process, she made everything so natural and easy. I am beyond thankful Mariana shot our wedding and will have these photos and memories to hold on to for a lifetime." - Gloria J.
