"Well, I’m not sure where to begin!! Simply put, we adore and love Mariam, as our incredibly kind, talented and amazing photographer but also as the amazing friend she grew to be! From our first meeting, engagement sessions and our wedding, Mariam outdid herself each time! Her work is impeccable, timeless, elegant, glamorous and stunning! We are lucky to have found our forever photographer. She is trustworthy, calming and the ultimate hype gal when it comes to getting a great shot and posing you! Mariam always had her head high in the uncertainty of 2020 and she often checked on us to see how we were holding up and always remained optimistic! She over and over again assured us she would be there for us. Mariam let us be crazy and jump through sprinklers for our engagement shoot and when it came to our wedding, she not only captured each shot we wanted but was so fast and excited she joined us on the dance floor with her laptop to show us some of her favorite photos she had just taken!! We truly couldn’t imagine a better team and photographer to have in our lives and to have captured our special day! Five stars truly is an understatement. We have recommended Mariam to many and cannot wait to have her capture more of life's special moments for us!"

"My husband and I absolutely love Mariam and her work! Mariam was our photographer for our June 20, 2020 wedding. She also did our amazing engagement photos. From the start, it was clear that Mariam is extremely kind and truly cares about her clients. She replies quickly to emails (and even texts!) and really makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera. We did our engagement photos in October 2019 downtown and the Kansas City Power & Light Building Beacon Lounge and at the Liberty Memorial. Our photos were fabulous and our friends and family loved them as well. For our wedding photos, Mariam made a detailed plan for the wedding day. She asked us what kind of shots we wanted/didn't want and gathered the names of family and our wedding party. We had a large wedding party, but Mariam did a great job of rounding everyone up and getting such great shots. Once the reception began and guests arrived, Mariam got great pictures of our venue and guests. As the sun went down, Mariam suggested we go take some more photos--those turned out to be AMAZING/some of our favorites! We really appreciate that Mariam got so many pictures of us. If you book Mariam, you'll never worry about "awwww man, not enough pictures were taken." She gets you all taken care of! :) Mariam already had a couple of sneak peeks to show us a few hours after the wedding-she is super efficient! We cannot wait to see the full gallery. Bottom line: book Mariam! You won't regret it/my husband and I always say "yeah, she's pretty much the absolute best!""

"I cannot fully express just how delighted I was after viewing Mariam’s photos after my five-year wedding anniversary shoot! I chose to wear South Asian clothing, jewelry, and henna and felt extremely nervous wearing clothing and jewelry that I do not wear regularly, nor have had photographed professionally. Mariam exceeded my expectations in delivering beautiful portraits that I will cherish forever. She gave us a beautiful sneak peek the day after our shoot and then surprised us with the full gallery on the day of our actual anniversary—just four days after our shoot! Mariam is extremely professional, punctual, personable, and flexible as we had to reschedule our photoshoot with very short notice. I would never hesitate to choose Mariam as our photographer in the future and I look forward to planning events that Mariam can capture. Her photos are vibrant, lively, and created so much joy for my husband and I to look back on fondly for many years to come!!"

"Getting married to my best friend was the best thing I ever did. Having Mariam take our photos was a close second. She's hands down one of the best photographers out there and one of the kindest people you'll ever get to spend a day with.."
