I'm Jade Maria, a fine art wedding and portrait film photographer based in San Diego, California. Since pursuing my passion over 8 years ago, I have been drawn to the timeless aesthetics of film photography, which allows me to bring an intentional and detail-oriented approach to my work. While finding the perfect balance between documenting organically and composing details in an editorial way, my hope is to create an heirloom gallery with romantic and sentimental images that will forever preserve the emotions of your day for years to come.
While I'm not behind the camera, I'm a mother to my adorable daughter, Evie, and wife to my high school sweetheart. I'm a crazy cat lady, and not afraid to admit it. In my spare time, you can find me camping, hiking, exploring new places, or watching live music. I am passionate about capturing love stories and unforgettable moments, and I would be honored to be considered as your photographer.
