I'm a photojournalist lifestyle photographer based out of New York - Astoria, NY to be exact! I recently got married to my dream man and we moved to Astoria. We enjoy visiting and hanging out at coffee shops in the area, traveling, good wine and movies, and hanging with our sweet dog, Kono.

Being able to pursue what I truly love in the greatest city is such a dream come true. Each new client is a wonderful way for me to present my creativity and produce beautiful art. I LOVE meeting my clients and I LOVE hearing about their life story. I'm a sucker for capturing those raw + real moments. The greatest moments to me are the natural candid ones where you are just being yourself. My passion is to create memories for you to cherish forever - Memories that reflect who you are. Memories that reflect love, pure joy, and genuineness.

If you take a look at my work here you will get a good idea about what suits me. If you are super happy with what you see on my website then I'm sure we are a match made in heaven. I can't wait to hear from you! Shoot me an email and let's create some memories!

Maria Doka specializes in intimate weddings, engagements, family sessions, and fashion + beauty photography.
