Hi! My name is Maria,

I’m a Bay Area based wedding and portrait photographer, who loves creating and capturing life’s moments into the memories that will last for generations to come.img_0358-1
My style is a mixture of modern fusion of fashion photography, classical fine art portraiture and editorial story telling. Enjoyable and unforgettable those are the words I like to use when anyone asks me to describe my approach to photography. For my wedding clients I invest time in getting to know you and your wedding dreams. That makes all the difference. My couples are more comfortable in front of the camera and the images have the natural, more authentic feel.

During the family/portrait sessions I strive to capture the beauty and connection of your family as they are, and create a special experience, showing real emotions, joy and true love.
I love to tells stories, I love to make people laugh.
I’m in love with golden backlight and bright airy photos that are modern, elegant and timeless.
I choose to see beauty everywhere and I’d like to think that  my images might bring you happiness.

 I can’t wait to meet you, and I would be honored to tell your story too. Contact me at maria@trueloveimage.com  for more information or to book a session.

Maria Kuzmina is an award-winning photographer, member of WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International).


-Really, truly amazing!! The pictures are stunning! We spent so long trying to plan a perfect wedding and now we have your pictures to let us relive our special day forever. Thank you so much, Maria! You are a true artist!

– Pictures of our wedding day blew us away… they are absolutely spectacular!! There are not enough words to describe them. We looked through all of them the first night 3 times which took well into the night. And each time we went through them, we fell in love with them more and more.

– It would be impossible for me to say how ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC TrueLoveImage photography is because our pictures turned out so incredibly beautiful, that there just aren’t words. Maria and Alex photographed our engagement session and our wedding , and they are simply masters at this craft, They were so helpful and personable, they kept our families at ease, and had excellent ideas to make the day go smoothly.

-Thank you! Thank you! I’ve watched our wedding slideshow about 17 times since you posted it yesterday, and have spent at least 10 hours in the online gallery. The amazing thing is, when I watch the slideshow for the 18th time, I know I’ll tear up again, and laugh yet again. You just captured the emotion so exquisitely and told the story of our day so beautifully that I feel like I’m re-living each moment.
