I'm so excited you decided to drop by! I'm Marya (Mar-yuh) Kovala, determined red-head, Duluth native, dreamer, + photographer. I've always been the girl with the camera. As a kid, I never left the house without my disposable & then later, digital camera; always eager to capture any moment that I wanted to remember forever. I'm what you call a good mixture of extrovert/introvert. I'm a people person that flourishes when kept busy, but also the introvert in me CRAVES those uninterrupted days being a homebody + sipping my coffee while catching up on The Bachelor.
My photography approach is deeply inspired by film photography. I strive to create art that reflects natural, modern, candid, & romantic heirlooms.
Lets take time to live in the moment and together we can create something beautiful to reflect on forever. I strive to create relaxed, timeless photos that will enhance the realness of any mile-marker in life.

"Marya is so easy to work with and has an eye for the perfect shot. Marya has captured so many special moments in our family's life- including shooting our maternity photos, gender reveal, as well as taking photos of our newborn! I would literally squeal with glee when she showed me a sneak peek while shooting! She is very talented and we cherish the photos she has taken. Definitely recommend!"

"I was a bit nervous heading into our engagement shoot! I started out feeling un-photogenic and self conscious. When the shoot actually began, Marya had a way of making me feel more comfortable and in my element. When we got our photos back I was so incredibly happy with how they turned out. She captured the most genuine moments so perfectly. Marya is an amazing and trustworthy photographer, and we're so lucky to have her with us on our wedding day! I would highly recommend for any occasion!"

"Marya was the perfect fit for both our engagement and wedding photos. She was personable and professional throughout our shoots. She captured every picture we wanted, and even some we didn't realize we wanted! You can also expect high quality editing on all of your images. We highly recommend her to anybody for all photography needs!"
