We are a wife and husband team who Believe in LOVE. Love is LOVE in our books, and the best love stories are of those folks whose love can be seen in the images we capture (especially without prompting!).
We’ve worked with a number of same-sex couples, and have had the pleasure of working with a transgender couple as well, and all of them will say how comfortable we made them feel in front of the camera. Our job is to capture your love story, and we make sure you have fun and enjoy yourselves as we do that for you! See a sample of our favorite LGBTQ engagements and weddings HERE.
Before we thoroughly confuse you, the name of the business is a combination of our middle names, so I’m Maria ELIZABETH and hubby is Kristian DOUGLAS Fossler. We met online (thanks, Yahoo! personals) sixteen years ago, met in person a month later, then got married less than 4 months after meeting. Love is awesome when it’s the right person, and we’re excited that YOU have found each other!!!
We believe in getting to know you, our couples, your photographic desires (we shoot photojournalistic as well as traditional…a mesh of both…or all photojournalistic if that’s what you prefer), and this does take time on both our parts. Whether we meet in person at our Tempe, Arizona office, or via Google Hangouts/Facetime, we believe in doing this to make sure that we have that connection, which is SO important to have with your wedding photographer (after all, we’re hanging out together all…day…long!). So, get ready to get to know each other!
Destination wedding? No problem. Maria travels with ease, and if it’s a car ride away, Kristian is happy to join, too. All I ask is that you cover travel expenses including hotel (day before the wedding and the day of) as well as my mileage or air expense.
We offer wedding collections (aka “packages”) as well as hourly a la carte pricing with one or both of us.
After the toasts have been made, the dinner devoured, and the honeymoon had…remember, your photos are what are going to be your remembrance of your wedding day…from the formal wear, the venue, the people, the floral and decor…we will have captured it all for you to relive your day for years to come.
