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 INCREDIBLE. My husband and I have been married for 4 years now. She has captured all our big moments! Engagement, babies, pregnancy, and “just because."
We always get a “teaser” after taking pictures with her within 24 hours and then it normally takes such a SHORT time to get all over them. I am BLOWN away! Would recommend her to everyone!!!!

"WOULD RECOMMEND HER TO EVERYONE!"
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"
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"
Mariah is the BEST Wedding Photographer! She disappeared into the background and was a joy to work with! She got the most beautiful photos, especially all the natural, candid pictures of family during the reception!
She is wonderful at making the whole process easy and enjoyable, making everyone feel comfortable and at ease during what can be an emotional and stressful day.
LOVE her!!!! Even in all the rain, she went above and beyond to get the most creative and beautiful shots...and was so easy and flexible with our changing timeline due to weather. Grateful for her in capturing the memories of the day!

"...MAKING EVERYONE FEEL COMFORTABLE AND AT EASE"
If you’re looking for the best photographer for your wedding, look no further. Pictures were the most important thing for me when planning the wedding because I knew I would reflect on them for a lifetime.
Mariah went above and beyond to make sure I had the perfect pictures! Her creativity, friendliness, professionalism, and talent can be matched by no one!
I 100% recommend her. I promise that she will not disappoint!

"MATCHED BY NO ONE"
This is our second time to use Mariah for a photo shoot and she was amazing. She did our maternity photos. I loved the way she captured my heart for my hubby and this sweet baby in my belly.
She picked just the right outside location. I had three different dresses and she made sure there was a bathroom open so I could change. She made us feel very comfortable.
We laughed a lot and she got my pictures back very soon.

"WE LAUGHED A LOT"
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
