Not just a photographer, your trusty third wheel.

A little about me

HI, I'M Mariah

If you haven’t met me yet, I’m Mariah Millie, a Vancouver & Fraser Valley wedding and lifestyle photographer who lives for capturing those beautiful in-between moments. Let’s preserve that time when you two are laughing but nobody else knows why; or when you whisper a secret to the other’s ear. If my photos can take you back in time and relive those intimate memories, I’ve done my job. 

I’m here to make you feel comfortable and supported. I’ll lend my expertise, but also an ear and corny dad jokes when you need it. Let’s laugh, let’s enjoy, and then let’s preserve it—so you can enjoy it all over again. 

If you haven’t met me yet, I’m excited to meet you. Tell me about yourselves. Tell me about your love. 

I love exploring. They don’t have to be big adventures—small ones will do too. 

Whether it’s going for walks with my fiance in a different neighbourhood, trying out a new restaurant, taking on home renos, or running off to Thailand for a
month — it's these things that light up my life. But it's not always the big things, it's more about the small mundane things for me. Sitting at home watching tv with my fiance (Yes, I've most likely seen that series), or trying out a new recipe and hoping it turns out, or just walking our pup, Nunus. It's these moments that are my favourite & the ones I want to remember.

And that’s the kinda approach I take to my sessions. It doesn’t have to be grandeur to be special. It's actually best when it's just you being you, or you doing something you love to do together, that makes it.

So let’s adventure your way—and I promise to capture those moments you want to remember. 

I'M A PROUD DOG AUNTY, AND YES SHE HAS A MILLION NICK NAMES THAT I SQUEAL AT HER. 

MY FAVOURITE THINGS


I’m there for you. In the weeks leading up to your wedding, I’m there to consult with and answer all your questions. On your wedding day, I’m there to photograph your morning mimosas to evening dance parties. In the weeks following your wedding, I’m there to edit your photos and deliver a gallery you’re obsessed with. In other words, I’m there for you every step of the way (but you won’t even know I’m there).

This is a special moment for you two. So I want you to focus on enjoying it. No stress, no fuss, no muss. 

RAIN, HAIL OR SHINE, I WON’T MISS A BIT (AND IN VANCOUVER, THIS MEANS A LOT!)

BEHIND THE LENS

Back in high school, photography class was the one class I really excelled at and enjoyed. I loved the challenge of documenting moments the way I wanted to remember them. I loved the feeling of anticipation as the photos developed in the dark room. And I loved the feeling of satisfaction when I saw the memories I captured. Today, I still love those feelings. This endless cycle of curiosity and determination to recreate beauty is what keeps me going. 

“MY UNDERSTANDING OF LOVE IS CONSTANTLY EVOLVING. AFTER EVERY SESSION, I SEE IT THROUGH A DIFFERENT LENS. IT’S A PUZZLING, BEAUTIFUL THING. SO WHEN I RECEIVE AN INQUIRY, THE FIRE LIGHTS UP. I KNOW I’M GOING TO SEE SOMETHING NEW.”

WHAT INSPIRES ME

My job as a photographer is to go unnoticed and document the unseen—so you can have your memories back in their raw, true form. Nothing forced, nothing fake. That’s my mission. 

"THOSE SIMPLE MOMENTS WE TAKE FOR GRANTED, MAKE THE BEST PHOTOGRAPHS"

my philosophy

Mariah was the absolute best! I was one of those COVID brides whose plans got turned upside down but Mariah was so calm and comforting the whole way through. My husband and I decided to elope and Mariah was so accommodating with the date change, location change, etc and made us feel so taken care of the whole day. And of course, the photos themselves were absolutely stunning!! Mariah was able to capture mine and my husband's relationship so beautifully and authentically and we will treasure these photos for years to come!

Brooklyn & Tyler

Mariah has such a kind personality and works hard to bring your vision to life! Our day had a last minute snowy forecast but she didn't complain about the cold for a moment. Our photos are so unique and beautiful; always look forward to shooting with Mariah!

Mariah was a dream to work with! Mariah did both our engagement and wedding photos. She made every step of the process so easy, especially during a pandemic. Not only is she the sweetest person, she was also very easy to communicate with and always had fresh ideas for photo locations, poses, etc. She also always asked us for our input while taking photos, so I can easily say that there wasn’t a single photo that I was missing from my vision. She took the time to get to know us, which really shows in her work. The photos are incredible, and I couldn’t imagine having any other photographer for our big day. I highly recommend Mariah to anyone and I look forward to working more with her in the future!

Mariah is incredible. Not only is her work absolutely beautiful and perfect but she is a true pleasure to work with. She did a shoot for myself and my partner a while back and she made us feel like we were the only ones in the room. We are so happy with the photos we got from our shoot that we are going to print two of them out to put up on our wall. Mariah is extremely talented and we both highly recommend her.

kind words from my couples

With you, the long way home never feels long enough.

Two souls, one story

Your story it's something I've never seen before. Let me capture it!
