Capturing Awesome Couples!

Yay!!! You're Engaged!

I know how much thought is going into your decision to hire your wedding photographer.

Hiring a wedding photographer is like buying a car, but you can't exactly test drive a wedding photographer.

Well, you kind of can. You can see their personality via a zoom call and their social media, plus you can see their track record with reviews from previous couples.

It is all still a little bit of a leap of faith, but I'm here to leap with you.

Contact Me

I've been a wedding photographer for 11 years. In that time I've done all sorts of things for my couples.

I've bustled brides, pinned boutineers, created toss bouquets, made timelines, fixed hair, taped dresses and held hands, to mention a few. I'm a helpful and compassionate person by nature and that doesn't stop when I have a camera in my hand.

Your wedding day is an experience from beginning to end and your photography is a huge part of that experience! I believe taking your photos should be fun, enjoyable and natural.

My goal is to not only capture your emotions but to add them with an experience you will never forget. Know that when I arrive on your day that you can relax, confident that every single detail will be gorgeously captured for generations to come!

Meet Your Photographer

Hi! I'm Trista the owner and lead photographer here at Trista Maja Photography. I'm a Los Angeles native that's been a wedding photographer since 2010.

I've photographed over 185 weddings around Southern California and beyond. I might be the silliest serious person you ever meet. I take my job incredibly seriously and I have a great sense of humor and bring it every time I'm photographing someone. When's the last time someone suggested you whisper your favorite veggie seductively in your partner's ear?
