I am inspired by feelings, and the beauty of the imperfect and unconventional; places and things that evoke nostalgia: the stillness of the world at sunrise and the chaos of the world at night, road trips with the windows down and no destination and stopping in the middle of an empty highway to snap a photo, the goosebumps on your skin when your partner touches you and raunchy kisses with tequila still on your lips...
I also draw inspiration from various mediums: film, movies, magazines, my travels, my friends, my mentors.
I am always learning and I am always growing.
Cheers to growth. Cheers to change. & cheers to the unconventional <3
My work evokes an emotional experience that helps slingshot people back into the past. I want each photo to help seamlessly tell the story of what the day felt like. I want these photos to be a place they can come back to to reignite their experience and love.
I love mixing iconic, creative poses into my galleries along with candid moments. My approach to wedding photography is bringing an elevated look while experiencing the beauty of our natural surroundings.
I love messy + nontraditional. Give me all the grainy, filmy, moody, motion blur, and creative compositions any day of the week honey!
Being a destination wedding photographer, I take a unique approach to the culture of where I am located. My goal is to merge the historical and natural beauty of my surroundings and the unique energy of each couple who want an unconventional flow to their wedding day.
YOU THINK PERFECTION IS BORING
you don't want cookie-cutter photos
YOU'RE NOT AFRAID TO DITCH traditions
YOU WANT TO START YOUR LIFE TOGETHER WITH AN ADVENTURe
YOU'RE DOWN TO EXPERIMENT AND try new things
YOU're not afraid to express yourself
Here's the thing, your wedding day is full of people, energy, moments, and emotions. My approach is to allow the story to unfold naturally and capture what it felt like without taking away from the uniqueness of your story.
ALSO I just think that this should be a downright damn good time. You're in love! You're fun! You're getting married!
Let's f*cking do this!!

what it's like to work with me
"I just got married 1 week ago and hired Masha as my photographer. Her editing style and types of photos on Instagram were what pulled me to her-so gorgeous and no cheesy poses! From the get go Masha was very professional, but also very personable. We talked on the phone before I hired her and she asked me if I had professional photos done before and what I did and did not like about them so she could make sure I got what I wanted. During the wedding she was so awesome. She took candids while we all got ready, and had super unique, fun, and artsy poses for Drew and I to do after our first look and during golden hou-she made us feel SO cool. I felt a little sick right after the ceremony and Masha was very patient and flexible with the timeline and asked me what I needed. Just got our sneak peek and WE ARE IN LOVE. Classy, artsy, fun, just beautiful. We're so excited for the rest! We don't hesitate to recommend Masha for a wedding or event, she's the best! 🙂 Thank you Masha!!!"
