Maria Sollecito Photography

(16)

My name is Maria Sollecito. I currently reside in Greensboro, NC and have been constantly working on my skills as a photographer since 2009. I owe a lot of my knowledge to the many established and well-known photographers who have allowed me to study under them. Since starting my business, I have had the pleasure of working with various agency-affiliated models, award winning makeup artists, several fashion shows including Greensboro Fashion Week, Furniture Market, USA Masters Games, and placed in the top 3 of Portrait Palooza. Although I am a short and awkward person, when it comes down to business, I get the job done. I am a munchkin on a mission.

And the results are in!

Every year, photographers around the world submit their photos in 50 different categories. Then they vote on their favorite for 12 rounds.

Although there were some issues with the contest this year, I am pleased with how far I have come. My first year where I made finalist. (Photo was taken in the men's bathroom because I loved the texture on the walls)

Here are my results, and the photos that got me there!

Alecia and Brent renewed their vows today at the gorgeous Bella Collina.

After a quick vow renewal on the deck, family photos and mingling with their beloved family and friends, we took a walk through the mansion for some intimate and romantic shots.

Later, we took a breather and played some baseball on the lawn. Alecia was a 3rd base state champion in Michigan, and it shows. Look at that look of determination!

And of course, their 3 girls had the Best Day Ever!

Side note: Earlier this week, I asked Bella Collina if I can hang a dress up in his office because he has nice walls. Today, I hung the dress up on TWO walls. Which wall do you like best?

When I spoke to Candace over the phone, I asked her how Jake proposed to her. (I always love hearing a good proposal story!)

She told me that they went out to dinner at Village Tavern and he had the kitchen write "Will you marry me?" in chocolate on their dessert plate. I wanted to recreate that on their wedding day so I asked Bakery 1818 to write their wedding date in chocolate :)

Here is a sneak peek of Candace and Jake's elopement!

Last year, many other small businesses, including myself were preparing for the year 2020. Aside from it being the start of a new decade, it was also a leap year. But for weddings, it was much much more. Wedding dates with numeral patterns have always been popular when it comes to weddings. Aside fr...

Usually when I am working, it's just me. As my business continues to grow, I will start to bring on more people to assist me. Until then, it's just me. I have learned to cope and adjust with working by myself. But one of the things I have struggled with is holding a camera AND a giant reflector at the same time!

Well, I decided to finally buy a reflector holder and Deborah was kind enough to come by and help me test it out. And she looks amazing!

Our Story

Hi there! I’m Maria Sollecito, the munchkin strolling around Greensboro NC with my camera. I specialize in beauty portraits and weddings; and I love meeting new people from all walks of life. Since we’re getting to know each other better, let me tell you a little bit about myself!

I’m a mother to an adventurous little boy and wife to an amazing man! Loving these two men in my life started my venture in stumbling across photography. I’ve always been fascinated by it, and found myself studying it in many forms. It didn’t take long to realize this profession would allow me to be myself: passionate, fun, and bold! I came to a crossroad after my son was born of whether I should return to work or pursue my passion with photography. Let’s just say I took a jump and went into business around 2012. It’s been a daring journey with the most awesome clients ever!

For my portrait clients, we take beauty to another level with a hint of class and elegance. Then there’s so much in store for my wedding couples on their special day. I prep my ears to listen attentively to your opinions; and focus on bringing your vision to life. My “loving to keep it fun” demeanor has helped diffuse some of the most stressful situations. I take full advantage of my munchkin-ness in capturing the best shots by: climbing trees, standing on rocks, laying on the ground, etc. Whatever it takes, consider it done!

Engagement session!
Hi, Maria... Rebecca Jackson and the Stadler’s twins have recommended I contact you in regards to my son’s senior pictures. He is a senior at High Point Central. Can you please message me?
Songbirds Bridal, Formal, and Consignment has done many events with Maria. She is an awesome photographer and a joy to work with. Her photos always looks great!
Maria was fantastic to work with. She was quick to respond to any question we had. She helped me initially figure out a timeline, and our wedding day could not have gone smoother. She worked well with everyone, including our pup who we wanted featured in our photos. She was so good at handling rowdy guests, and groomsmen. She was able to defuse difficult grandparents all with charm, and a smile. It was really fun to watch her work. She maybe short, but she made sure she got her shot. She had some really creative ideas for photos I would have never thought I wanted. We rented the trolley for our wedding, and Maria went above and beyond plotting out routes that she thought would be best for photos. She even drove them and took sample photos so we could see the different backdrops. She gave her professional advice on how to capture the important moments of our wedding. She was always there to help capture all the candid moments of our wedding. Maria was a perfect for my husband and I. She was assertive and respectful of our opinions of how we envisioned our big day. Maria has a winning personality that would put any camera shy person at ease.
