I absolutely loved working with Maya for our portrait session together. Not only did I LOVE my photos but the session itself was so much fun! This is truly because of Maya’s energetic and fun personality. She made me feel so comfortable and confident. Bringing out my very best and capturing it effortlessly on camera. Maya definitely brings something very unique to any type of photography session. She brings energy, fun and quality together in a beautiful and genuine way. I would definitely recommend Maya Papaya Pictures for any occasion. She takes all of the pressure off that normal comes with having photos taken. You can rest assured that you will have photos you will love and treasure forever.

Working with Maya was such a great pleasure! She is very professional but it not afraid to be herself. She makes to feel SO comfortable and the most gorgeous person in the room. Her fun loving personality is contagious and it's hard not to have a good time when shooting with her. She is also great with teaching and letting you know the correct poses or angles. I would highly recommend her and will be working with her again soon!

Working with Maya was an absolute TREAT! She is such an amazingly talented bright and energetic spirit and really knows how to make anyone and everyone comfortable while taking pictures. Not only was it fun to hang out with her the entire session but she was willing to go above and beyond (trudging through muddy foliage included) to get the perfect shot. We couldn’t be more thrilled with the memories these photos hold and we will cherish them forever! I would highly recommend Maya to take your photos no matter the occasion.

Maya was fantastic to work with! We did a shoot by the Salt River. The water was freezing, but Maya didn’t hesitate to get in the water with us just to get the perfect shot.

I would without reservation recommend Maya to be your videographer. Working with Maya was very easy and very rewarding. When you are the one getting married, you have no idea what is going on during the ceremony and reception because you are so “in the picture.” Seeing our ceremony and hearing our guests speak was so very special. Maya really made our special day even more so.

Maya is more than just a face behind the camera. She works alongside you to create the creative images that allow you to express yourself and spends the time to get you comfortable with the camera's presence. 10/10 would recommend.

I highly recommend working with Maya. Her quality of work is amazing and nothing seems to phase her. She was more than willing to embark on the journey and the travel to Sedona during AZ’s first “blizzard”. Trucking through the snow, up the mountain top, she was able to capture some breathtaking moments. I can’t thank Maya enough for featuring the renewal of our vows in such a remarkable way.
