ANNA MARIA STUDIO
Natural & authentic lifestyle photography
HELLO & WELCOME
I'm Maria, a photographer based in Hong Kong specialising in natural portrait photography.
I shoot couples, babies, families and weddings because I love to witness honest connections and candid moments between people that you really cannot fake.
That burst of love when your partner proposed, the intensity of emotions from your family and friends as they watch you walk down the aisle, or simply a tender moment between you and your kids.
My aim is to help you capture these beautiful memories, so that you can look back at them and relive them all over again and again.
We’ve had a great experience shooting with Maria these past few years. She has such a relaxed style and it really translates to how comfortable everyone is in front of the camera. And she is able to capture such beautiful, authentic moments (some of which I didn’t even realise actually happened in real life much less could have been captured beautifully on film)!
Our first year shooting with Maria, I didn’t see how it would have been possible to get any good shots of the kids either alone or together as it turned out to be a 33 degree day in December, we were all in winter clothes for a Christmas shoot, the kids hadn’t napped, the grandparents were there adding more chaos to the situation - but you would never even know it! Everyone looks peaceful, relaxed, joyous - it was sheer magic I tell you!
PHIL AND LORENA
If you’re thinking about taking Maria as your photographer - do it! I highly recommend her work. She did our engagement shoot and made us feel extremely comfortable whilst taking very natural images of us.
The photos are stunning and we were very happy with her work. Maria is also super quick with editing and also open to any ideas you’d like for your shoot. Highly recommend her!
Maria has taken our annual family photo shoot for two years in a row now and we just adore our photos and enjoyed the experience. She is super professional and we love her style which is natural, really capturing the personality of our kids each year. My son who is two years old wasn’t really in the mood, but very quickly warmed up to Maria. She is very relaxed and great with kids. Also the process was very efficient and we had all of our final photos ready in just a few days. Highly recommend Maria to everyone.
KEVIN & BEA'S WEDDING
We had such a great time working with Maria! She made us feel so comfortable, and knew what moments to capture during our wedding day. The highlight of the session for me was when Maria asked me quite casually what I loved about my husband, Kevin. I think that brought out all the natural emotion and so the photos looked quite organic and not posed at all!
The photos she took turned out beautifully and we are so so happy with them! Thank you Maria, until next time!
Who knew a newborn shoot could go so smoothly?! What a treat to have Maria photograph us with our wee guy at just 6 days old! Throughout the shoot, Maria was warm and comforting. She was happy to wait patiently between shots for feedings and outfit changes. Her gentle presence kept us at ease as we spent the afternoon simply savoring our little family. She has a gift for capturing the tenderest of candid moments, as well as offering a touch of guidance to seal the perfect shots. We are so grateful for her gorgeous photographs- they capture the essence of our early days as a family of three. We look forward to working with Maria again soon!
Maria is a dream photographer - lovely, easy-going, can provide direction during an intimate shoot and most importantly is super talented. Our maternity photos are so beautiful & precious, honoring this journey from newlyweds to expectant parents as documented in our little home & the nearby beach. Her photos will be referred to during those dreary, tired, tough nights in the future! Her photography captured the beautiful real with love and grace, and I'm keen to book in a newborn session once baby is born!
