Where to start...hire Mariah Oldacre. I have known Mariah for years now and I have seen how Mariah has developed from a good photographer to an outstanding one. I can tell you that Mariah is not only talented but also hardworking, fun, hilarious, and warm. So, when it came time for my now husband and me to hire a wedding photographer, I contacted Mariah...even though we live in Seattle, and she lives in Alabama.
There is no shortage of photographers in Seattle, but I knew that Mariah was the perfect person to capture our day. We had the distinct privilege of Mariah shooting our engagement photographs the day before our wedding. The week of the wedding can be pretty crazy, but the time we spent taking photos with Mariah that day left us feeling relaxed and focused on our love. The day of the wedding, Mariah was attentive and organized while also being relaxed and flexible. I feel so incredibly lucky that she was the one to capture our day. If you choose Mariah as your photographer, prepare yourself: you will not only get beautiful photographs, but you will have a great time and get to hang out with one awesome human being! So, go ahead, hire Mariah!

"left us feeling relaxed and focused on our love"
Mariah is like that one cousin that everyone hopes shows up to Thanksgiving and Christmas because you know whatever the circumstance you know you will have a great experience. My family and I recently had a mini session and the property flooded the day before. Mariah took her time to find perfect locations and even update us as to proper attire so we didnt completely ruin anything. Her photo quality and attention to detail are like a top shelf bourbon. Once you make the decision to go with the best, you'll be glad you did and you will never look back. Do yourself a favor and book the easiest, most relaxed, and stress free shoot of your life.

She places priority on knowing you and your partner and tailors your experience around what's important to you through pictures. How amazing?! She makes you feel so comfortable as you're shooting. I have never had so many compliments on a gallery of photos in my life!
I love her. I literally didn't know I could take a good picture or look that beautiful until she came into my life. I was just blown away by the moments she captured and how special the pictures still make me feel even months (I'm sure years) later. I'm very picky about what I like and my style so I'm always hesitant putting all the trust into someone else's hands- I'm just here to let everyone know you can trust her to do better than amazing! You will be blown away. I can't wait to use her again in the future. I trust her with any occasion

"TAILORS YOUR EXPERIENCE AROUND WHAT'S IMPORTANT TO YOU"
Mariah is officially our family photographer. She captured my daughter at 2 weeks old and our family 6 months later. She is an absolute delight to work with and goes above and beyond for her clients.
She came to our house for the photo shoots and rolled with the punches while trying to capture an itty bitty human and her many emotions. We had sneak peak photos the following day and a complete album less than a week later.
We simply can not say enough about this sweet ball of sunshine.

"GOES ABOVE AND BEYOND FOR HER CLIENTS"
Mariah was absolutely incredible to work with. Throughout the entire process, she was so good to us! She went out of her way to develop a genuine relationship with us during our engagement which I am so grateful for because wedding planning can be stressful.
When our wedding day finally rolled around, she didn't feel like just another vendor; it honestly felt like another friend who was there to capture these memories for us. She brings so much positive energy and knowledge to the table which made our special day super smooth and fun. I couldn't recommend a better photographer!
She is absolutely killing the photography game!

"SHE DIDN'T FEEL LIKE JUST ANOTHER VENDOR"
Not only is Mariah one of my very best friends, but the ONLY person I would ever trust to capture some of the most important moments in my life. She has found the balance between personable and professional, creative and timeless, adaptable and recognizable. Mariah knows how to serve her clients in exactly the way the client needs and wants, while still retaining the quality and integrity of her own work.
She knows how to be a fun, comforting, assertive, or invisible personality, depending on what each situation calls for. She's SO easy to contact, SO easy to work with, and her photography never disappoints. Mariah did my siblings' senior pics, we did a styled shoot together, she did our engagement pictures, and we just received our wedding pics.
We will absolutely continue to trust her with all our photography needs in the future. She always captures the very best "us", making both the photo shoots and pictures themselves treasured gifts. We love Mariah!!!

"SHE ALWAYS CAPTURES THE VERY BEST US"
If you want a photographer that will capture your personality and your relationship with your partner, call Mariah. If you want a photographer that will capture true moments rather than a posed, forced moment, call Mariah! If you want pictures that you'll love for ever because you haven't seen yourself look that happy in a picture before, CALL MARIAH!! Easily the best decision I made when it comes to the wedding. Her personality is amazing, her process is perfect, and the results are better than you can imagine!

"Easily the best decision I made when it comes to the wedding"
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 is so easy to be instant friends with"
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!

"There is no better wedding photographer than Mariah Oldacre!"
My husband and I eloped a few months back and asked Mariah to take “wedding pictures” for us. We were expecting availability about a year from when the initial message was sent, but she got us scheduled 2 months later! She replied almost immediately, even though she was out of town.
She went above our expectations and gave us amazing pictures to share with our family in the years to come. We were terrified of facing judgement, or just having an awkward experience, but it was the complete opposite with Mariah.
She made us feel comfortable and confident, and by the end of the session we really felt like we gained a new friend. She got to know us and our family, and gave us incredible photos of our all time favorite memory. She is a true artist and we can never thank her enough
