Hi there! It’s me, Maria, your friendly sushi lover, chocolate addict, rainbow chaser, equality supporter, cat mama, photographer!
Born and raised in Italy, I moved to NYC in ’98 and finally felt at home! Currently located in sunny Orlando I photograph weddings and portraits locally as well as in New York and wherever my passport takes me.
I’m a filmmaker and my passion for storytelling is what fuels me to preserve generation legacies through my photos.
I’m here to tell a story… yours! I can’t wait to catch your memories!

"We were on a tight deadline for a magazine feature that authentically captured our spirits and energy! Maria NAILED IT! I have NEVER received this many thumbs up and compliments from my team saying how much they love their photo. She made us feel confidant and beautiful. She was easy to work with - SO STRESS FREE (this was the first time in YEARS I haven't been stressed as the visionary and director for the day). Book MARIA now for WHATEVER occasion!"

"Maria was so fun to work with and we had the most amazing time with her! I am not used to being in front of a camera and I was nervous about feeling awkward but Maria made it so easy! We absolutely love our photos and would work with her again!"
( Katie )
"Maria is the best! First of all, my incredibly shy hubby was in his element. So was my child! The memories captured are truly magical, and Maria has a gift both of kindness and professionalism. I HIGHLY recommend her if you want photos taken from unique perspectives and nothing but love of the art and family. Thank you Maria!!! The photo shoot was the highlight of our Disney Day!"

"Maria is wonderful! She not only took amazing family pics for us but communicated with me beforehand about outfits, location changes, etc. She captured amazing pics and turned them around so quickly. I highly recommend her!!"
( Brittany )
"Maria is so easy and fun to work with! We had a tight deadline for team photos. They arrived early, and were quick to give suggestions and input on outfits. For a group of 8 strong-willed women, that's not easy to do!! Maria made sure we all looked our best, and made it FUN for us. It's only been a week but she made sure we had sneak peeks within a couple days, and a full album to pick from for our deadline. I HIGHLY recommend Maria Riboli Photography!!!"

"There are NO words to truly review how amazing Maria is! I traveled across the country to celebrate my 10 year wedding anniversary and I knew I had to document this moment but I was so worried who would do it. I did research and found a few people but it didn’t seem right. I knew Maria was the perfect woman for the job! She was so amazing since our first interaction! It was like we have known each other for years! She was fast in giving us a sneak peak and the pictures are soooo beautiful! ❤️"
( Amy )
"Maria made a very special moment in my life even more magical. She helped me with her knowledge and skills pick a perfect place to propose. We have beautiful pictures that we will cherish forever. Also a partner in crime trying to keep it all a secret and surprise for my fiancé. Not to mention she also took care of my little girl which she didn’t have to! I highly recommend using her! Thank you again from my family to yours!!"

"Maria photographed my birthday party, and the results were stunning. She captures moments and emotions! Looking through the album she made for me was like reliving the experience all over again! Throughout the entire process, Maria was incredibly professional and attentive. She made a point to even go to the venue beforehand to have a better idea of how to photograph the event! I can't wait to work with Maria again and make memories to last a lifetime!"
( Colte )
"I absolutely cant express it enough how much of a blast I had. Maria was incredibly nice and she definitely knew what she was doing, she kept it professional but also fun by matching with our vibe, the pictures turned out amazing and words cant describe how much I love them💗💗"
( Rose )
"Maria was fantastic to work with! We were on a "wish" trip for my son with multiple disabilities and the sponsor included the photoshoot. I was not excited, lol. I was stressed about what to wear, annoyed we had to leave the park to get ready. Maria made all of that [stress] go away. We relaxed, we had fun, and the smiles she captured were absolutely genuine. I love the photos and am so grateful to have them! I would absolutely recommend Maria to anyone."
( Stacy )

"We’ve been fortunate enough to work with Maria twice. Once in March 2020 prior to the lockdown and again in April 2021. We are always thrilled with the photos she takes! She’s flexible to your vacation schedule, she’s professional and oh so kind! It’s hard not to hire her with every vacation! She is one of the nicest humans on this planet! We are so happy to have met her and I can’t wait to watch our family grow though her photos!"

"I can’t say enough wonderful things about Maria. She was so accommodating, so encouraging and insightful, and she worked so hard to make sure that I was safe and comfortable and that I felt beautiful. The resulting photos are more incredible than I could have anticipated. I am so grateful for Maria and am already formulating new concepts so I can work with her again. :) 🧚♀️"
( Nicole )
"Maria was nothing short of amazing to work with! She’s so much fun, and has a comforting presence, which was essential for me because I get very uncomfortable in front of the camera. Maria made the whole experience smooth and natural. No uncomfortable posing, she just lets you get loose and captures the moment. She made us feel beautiful! She’s incredible to work with, and an all around wonderful soul!"

"Maria is such an incredible photographer, her photos really tell a story! She’s so wonderful to work with and always make sure we feel comfortable while shooting. I couldn't recommend her more!!!"
( Megan )
"We had the pleasure to work with Maria on a photo shoot for our adoption profile. We'd never had professional photos taken, and were concerned about looking fake or not true to ourselves. Maria has a truly amazing way to capture real life. From communication before, her amazing kindness and professionalism the day of, Maria's photos represented us in a beautiful way. I highly recommend working with Maria, she is incredible!"
( Theodore )
"I can’t even begin to express how wonderful this experience was. In the middle of what can be a pretty busy schedule, Maria was able to get us comfortable and calm to take the most beautiful portraits ever. She was patient and was able to connect with each one of my kiddos and take priceless photos of their true self. You won’t regret working with Maria and taking the time to document this fleeting magical moments."

"Maria is an amazing photographer, and captured our memories at Walt Disney World so beautifully. I booked with her via the internet, and while hesitant at first, Maria had great communication! I didn’t feel rushed through our photoshoot, and she captured the memories I was looking for! Our family fell in love with her. She is personable, you feel like you know her from the start. I would highly recommend her, and look forward to more memories with her!"
( Dana )
"What a great experience! Our photoshoot took less than an hour, and I was amazed at how many beautiful photos we had to choose from! She made us comfortable, and we looked magazine read 😎"
