Knot Hall of Fame –  As seen on MTV, Style me Pretty, The Knot and more. 

Hello and welcome!! I am Maria Angela Ricci, the lead photographer and owner of Maria Angela Photography. I am absolutely excited that you are here to view some of my work! I have been photographing weddings full-time for over eleven years. My style of photography encompasses my personality as an artist meaning that I am a laugh-out-loud, always smiling, passionate Italian who lives and breathes anything creative or artistic. I am a bit quirky, tattoos on my arms, and sporting my favorite chucks! So my images tend to follow that style with being fun, creative, quirky, bold, confident, and emotional (that’s the Italian side of me!). I believe that every moment, if caught in the right lighting and composition (that’s where my mad skillz come in!), can be truly captivating. So please take a moment to check out the weddings I have photographed along with some of my favorites from over th e years, all found within the “weddings” link in the menu bar above! If you would like to chat over coffee (coffee, coffee, coffee!) or reach out via email, please do as I thoroughly love meeting new people! Which reminds me…..CONGRATS!!!

Est. 2008


Maria Angela Photography is based out of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and available for weddings across the country. We no longer accept international locations. No travel fee for the SW Florida region.


My style of wedding photography has been described as bold, fun, and authentic. I utilize a photo-journalistic approach to documenting wedding days and connected events or sessions. My mission is to find the moments that create a captivating story. These moments are emotional, heartfelt, fun, and intimate. Interjection is minimal which allows for a more natural feel to candid images.


M.A.P. was started in January of 2008 in Naples, Florida. Throughout the years I (Maria) have photographed weddings throughout the country and select international destinations. My wedding images have been featured and showcased with MTV, Yahoo, News, Huffington Post, Destination I Do, The Knot Magazine, and many, many more. I am blessed to have received over a dozen awards from various companies including the Knot Magazine and Wedding Wire. My experience in the industry allows me to serve as a resource as well for my wedding couples. I am happy to provide tips, suggestions, and advice – if or when needed.
