Mariah was amazing! We were celebrating our 10 year anniversary on Maui and wanted a great photographer. This was very important to me so I did my research and saw many great reviews on Mariah Milan Photography. But I am a tough customer and wanted to see for myself so I contacted her with a few questions. She responded right away and wished me luck on my search. I was surprised that she did not bombard me with emails asking me to pick her. I believe she knew that her photography said it all. I fell in love with her pictures. I read her Bio and knew that she was the one that would take care of my family. I set the date and paid the deposit and within minutes received a confirmation email. Soon after I received detailed instructions on what to expect from her- Thank GOD someone knows how to do business! Her information sheet was easy to fill out and I could tell she did her homework because it felt like she knew my family and called us all by name. We can be a little unstructured/goofy and I thought maybe she would get one good shot. 10 years, 2 kids later, and Maui so one good shot was going to be good enough for me. Well it wasnt good enough for Mariah. She surpassed my expectations and gave me beautiful family photos. She gave me a sneak peek that day and I knew it was a busy day for her because she had plans with her family. What a breath of fresh air! Her connection to people and the island are unexplainable. She taught us things about Maui that made the kids laugh and left my husband and me in wonder. It was such a fun shoot and she handled the kids and my camera shy husband very well. I could not have asked for a better experience from a photographer, someone I am doing business with. She made us feel like we were home. And her beautiful photos have made all my friends and family jealous. Mission accomplished!
