Wedding & Engagement Photos in Boise, ID

| Boise based but washington grown |

**Central Washington is my home away from home. My travel fees do not apply to the Wenatchee/Leavenworth valley** 


Photography to me is more than just a click of the shutter, it's giving a moment that is fleeting a chance to say "I am going to stay lasting." I believe in being present and capturing the truth in a moment. Life is full of all our little in between moments, joyful smiles, tears of laughter, and passionate hugs. These are the ones that matter the most and my goal is to capture those feelings for you to have and to hold close to your heart. 

My style would best be described as "directed photojournalism" - it's pure raw emotion meets cover-of-Vogue amazing! I believe in beautiful natural lighting (it's the ideal paintbrush), incredible backgrounds, and choosing locations very carefully. I never pose a situation that is already magical, yet understand that direction is a powerful tool for designing a gorgeous end result. 

I am a full service wedding and lifestyle photographer based out of Boise, ID, but I travel often to many places throughout the Pacific Northwest and I have an extra special bag already packed for those that need me to travel!  I've been doing this gig for over a decade, and pinch myself regularly that my job is spending time with and capturing those on their happiest most memorable of days, whether it's a wedding, family session, or welcoming a new little one into the family.

Blessed, honored, and thankful! - Yours truly, Maija

More About Me


More About Me


 
   

   

I'm a bit of a dork at times and a self proclaimed spaz, there's not enough time in life to be too serious! I'm a Mama of 2 wild, intense, passionate and sweet boys, a wife to one very kind hunk of a man. I won the Jack Pot with this guy in his heart, looks and brains! Yay me :) I've traveled near and far, love a good solid adventure, and have a small obsession with Sharpie pens.  Most evenings you'll find me with a glass of wine in hand, my hubby sitting on one side of the couch recapping on the day or dreaming/planning about what we want the next five years of life to look like. This of course is right after experiencing what feels like a tornado blew through our house, but nope, it was just our little rascals.

I love a good challenge, so if you put me up to one I'll take a stab at it. I'm a good listener, lover of God, a Jeep owner, and an animal lover (though currently our only two pets are our kids - dog to join the family soon!) I'm a middle sister, a peace-maker, a World Vision supporter, and always willing to try new things. I'm a huge Nike hooded zip-up fan - I'm wearing one as I type this. I really really like cheese and popcorn, believe in a balanced healthy lifestyle, I'm a boot camp instructor and fitness enthusiast. Just in case you are thinking about buying me flowers, tulips and poppies are my favorite. The color purple makes me happy. And I have been known to cry over some commercials, but MOST importantly I'm a huge sucker for love stories and I want to hear yours!!    

Hi guys, I'm maija!

**You pronounce it Maya or My-ah....don't worry, I get it all the time ;) 


My boys, my heart, my loves.

 Well, you've made it this far - to the "contact the photographer" page.  What to do now?  My advice to all those who are searching for a photographer to capture any of life's moments is to reach out and get to know the person behind the camera. There are THOUSANDS of talented photographers out there (I admire many of them) but it's SO much more than pretty pictures. The relationship between you and your photographer is what creates the magic in your images and allows you to truly be 'YOU' in front of the camera. Ask yourself, will they feel more like a friend than hired help at your wedding or during the first days of your sweet baby's life?
