Hey friend! I'm Mariah and I'm the one that gets to capture all this joy! I'm obsessed with super in love couples that want to really experience their wedding day. The ones that want to feel all the feelings and soak it all in while remembering the day through beautiful photos long after the wedding is over. That's where I come in!
I'm a Huntsville wedding photographer but love to shoot in many different places! Personal connection, honest expressions, and fun dance parties are my specialty! And I really just LOVE love and the smile lines that develop over time because of it. Let's get to know each other more!
GET TO KNOW ME A LITTLE
Mariah was absolutely amazing! Taking pictures takes up a huge chunk of the actual wedding day and Mariah made it such a flawless and easy experience. Having good wedding photos was very important to us, so we did not want to settle when picking a photographer. Mariah exceeded all of our expectations! From my first meeting with her, I could tell that she was extremely experienced and knew what she was doing. She has such a joyous and infectious personality, which made everyone truly enjoy taking pictures. 10/10 experience and 11/10 photos!!!
1. The preparation for the big day: Mariah is extremely professional and knew all the right questions to ask to make sure we got what we wanted. She was so organized with every step of the process, but I was really impressed with how much she prepared before the day of the wedding. She was so easy to communicate with and responded extremely fast. She was very flexible with any requests I had throughout the process.
2. The day: Mariah was a ROCKSTAR the day of my wedding. My husband and I were nervous about knowing how to pose for pictures, but she gave such good instructions that we didn’t even feel like we were posing. She gracefully dealt with every mishap that came her way. All of our family members and wedding party raved about how great our photographer was!!! She kept things moving quickly, but did it in a way that didn’t make us feel rushed at all. She was such an essential part of the day and we were so glad that her and her husband (her second shooter) were there to be a part of it.
3. The pictures: Mariah gave us sneak peeks of our pictures just a few days after our wedding. It was SO FAST. It was so much fun to relive the day through the sneak peak photos while we were on our honeymoon. All the other photos came less than two weeks after our wedding. I was STUNNED by how amazing they were. She beautifully photographed every moment that I wanted to have captured and more!!!

Pictures are so important and sentimental to me so for our wedding, I knew a photographer was one of the most important vendors we would book. I had came across Mariah's work and I immediately loved it. I knew the person that we chose to photograph our wedding would have to be someone we felt comfortable with and truly got us and our love for one another- the moment I met with Mariah I knew she was just that person!
We could not have chosen a more perfect person to capture all the special moments of our wedding. I can't recommend Mariah enough- she is fun, sweet, genuine, and has a way of making you feel so comfortable when she's around! She's so great at what she does.

I’m super picky with who I wanted to be our wedding photographer. I didn’t want just anyone, I wanted someone who has editing skills with the particular aesthetic that I like and also someone who could bring out the best in us through pictures. Mariah did just that!
Looking through her work I knew she was the one instantly. You can feel love and emotion through her photos. She truly brings out something special in people. We thought we were going to be so awkward at our shoot but it was quite the opposite because we had a BLAST.
She’s so talented not only in the quality of her work but also with the fact that she brings out the absolute best in people! If you are looking for a photographer who will focus not only on all the right angles but also the love you share as a couple, Mariah is your girl!!!

Mariah and Jared are absolutely AMAZING. Mariah is your main girl and Jared is your second shooter guy. They are both so easy to get along with and they instantly connected with everyone. It was like they were both part of the family. They were always cutting up and making my wedding day a blast!
Mariah was able to get lots of smiles and laughs out of my Hunter. The pictures......THE PICTURES....were absolutely amazing. Mariah exceeded my expectations and made my memories 100 times better. She was able to capture EVERY single little detail of my wedding. I literally feel like I am reliving my wedding day just by looking at every picture.
The whole booking process and talking to Mariah about all the details for my big day was so easy too. Mariah stayed in touch from book date to wedding date, she responded promptly and answered ANY questions I would have!

We met Mariah through a mutual friend at an impromptu photo shoot in California. We had such a great time together and were so blown away by her quality of work that we decided to make them our engagement photos. Our experience with Mariah made it so easy to decide who our photographer was going to be for our wedding. Her kindness paired with her photography skills honestly made us feel lucky to have met her.
During our planning process, Mariah was detailed, organized and responsive. We enjoyed the planning process and walked away so confident that we had a photographer who had the experience and confidence to run the show the day of our wedding. We had some obstacles pop-up within the final two weeks of our wedding, and she re-assured us and helped us navigate the uncertainty. She truly cared about us as if we were her family.
On the day of our wedding, Mariah was kind and polite with all of our guests. Her enthusiasm and engagement with our wedding party/guests was such a positive experience for us and matched our joy. She fit right in with everyone. We can't wait to decorate our house with all of our incredible wedding photos. She captured our wedding in exactly the moody, romantic, and joyful way that we were hoping for on our wedding day.
Thank you Mariah for being an outstanding photographer and friend. We will cherish these memories for a lifetime.
There is no better wedding photographer than Mariah Oldacre!

Where do we begin.... From everything going on in the world, we had plenty to worry about with the wedding facing the possibility of being pushed back and delayed due to COVID-19. One part of the wedding we had no worries about was photography. Photography is so important when it comes to weddings, so it was important to us to choose someone we could trust with our big day.
Mariah reassured us throughout the weeks leading up everything would work out and she is just simply an amazing photographer. She was so easy and fun to work with prior to the wedding with getting the schedule finalized and making sure we got everything we wanted.
Our wedding was on May 24, 2020 and Mariah was the absolute best! On the wedding day, she was just so much fun! She played our favorite music while we took photos, was on point with family photos (thankfully because they would’ve been forever long if not).
We had over 120 photos back the next morning! That’s incredible and so so quick!! We literally had all of our photos back in less than 2 weeks. She is so incredibly talented, fun, and easy to work with! We could not be happier with our decision to choose Mariah for our wedding day!
Blake + Hunter
She captured our love gorgeously. We smiled and laughed the whole time. Mariah is so easy to be instant friends with—she played music and told stories and complimented us, giving us confidence. Looking through the gallery is a breathtaking, overwhelming experience. I can’t wait to use her services again and again.

Mariah was absolutely phenomenal! She went above and beyond to capture a surprise proposal for me, carrying out the plan and executing every detail to perfection beyond my wildest dreams. She was incredibly accommodating, making a long, challenging hike on a hot, humid day.
After the big moment, she made capturing engagement photos natural and pleasant, letting us focus on each other. She went out of her way to make the most of such a special occasion, quickly shared "sneak peek" photos for us to share with family and friends, and was genuine and gracious throughout the entire experience.
Her communication before and after the session was comprehensive and prompt. As for the photos - indescribable! She is hands-down the best photographer in North Alabama and is worth every penny. Her style is exceptional and you won't be disappointed. If she's the one behind the camera for any special occasion that life sends your way, consider yourself lucky!
Andrew + Dani
those moments that make your heart skip a beat. I’m all about catching the fun, genuine, quirky, and sometimes weird love you have for one another. ONCE IN A LIFETIME MEMORIES DESERVE ONCE IN A LIFETIME PHOTOS.
