Mariah is amazing! I felt so comfortable in front of her camera which is usually not the case for me! She is very specific with her directions and I really appreciated that. The photos exceeded my expectations. I can't say enough good things about her studio, it is SO unique and beautiful there is nothing like it. Would send any family or friends her way!
I am painfully awkward and goofy in front of a camera. As an independent fitness instructor, however, it's important that I have lots of flattering images for my website and other marketing materials. Mariah immediately made me feel at ease; she is funny, professional, and most importantly very detailed about how she wanted me to pose. I never know what to do with my hands or how to smile, and she directed every single position in every single picture down to the tilt of my chin. Her assertiveness helped me to relax by giving me something to focus on. I also was confident that she was very good at what she did, and the pictures she produced confirmed that. I cannot recommend her enough.
Mariah is a wonderful photographer and consummate professional. She is fun, energetic, easy to work with and takes beautiful pictures. She took photos of our family for the holidays and worked both with young children/toddlers and adults. Everyone was comfortable in her care, and she has a way about her that puts you at ease and takes the stress out of picture-taking. Her guided directions regarding lighting, stance, and positioning were professional and helpful. And the pictures turned out wonderfully! Everyone looked so happy and natural. If you are looking for a photographer, I strongly recommend Mariah Ehlert.
Mariah is fabulous to work with, she clearly loves what she does and has fun doing it! She photographed my family, which included my 3.5-year old and 20-month old daughters. She was quick to capture those spontaneous, candid moments with the girls that have become my favorite (basically them on the run). Thankfully she was well prepared to work with toddlers. It was greatly appreciated that she offered some guidance on outfit choices to help make the photos look cohesive. And with her coaching I had one of the best individual photos of me taken since my wedding - many thanks! I'm going to remember those tips in future photographs.
True professional. Had my headshots done by Mariah. Amazing!
Having someone take your picture(s) can be nerve racking, intimidating and overwhelming. However, Mariah has such a warm and comforting presence I almost forgot what we were there for! We met at the Denver Botanic Gardens. Took a few minutes to talk and figure out what I wanted from the photo session and then we explored the grounds taking pictures in a natural and beautiful setting. When Mariah sent me the pictures from our time together I was thrilled. Just what I was looking for! I can't recommend Mariah enough for your photo needs.
[The session was] one of the best experiences I've had being in front of the camera. Mariah provided a professional, knowledgeable, and fun experience that typically is a disaster for me.
I have always frozen in front of a camera. Mariah made it fun and caught the wealth of emotion between mother/daughter and grandma. It was a fun and beautiful experience! and now I have photos to prove it happened!!
I thoroughly enjoyed my photo session with Mariah. I was having a bad day before my photoshoot, but Mariah and her makeup/hairstylist made my day so much better. My photos came out lovely and I received numerous compliments on them.
Mariah has captured some beautiful photos of our family, which includes two active little boys (who don't smile or sit still for just any photographer) and our baby girl. She is talented and wonderful to work with!

I felt at ease working with Mariah. Getting the perfect photo sometimes means posing in a way that doesn’t come naturally, but Mariah talked me through the movements and the rationale behind each slight move of the arm or tilt of the head – and I couldn’t be happier with the results! She was very fun to work with throughout the entire shoot, and had extreme patience (and lots of tricks up her sleeve!) when incorporating my furry companion. I’m in love with the moments she captured of me with my dog Bogie.
Mariah and her photography have been an integral part of the birth of my first child. When I asked Mariah to document my pregnancy and birth, I was thinking about the finished product- the photos. On that front, she delivered more beautiful and touching images than I ever could have imagined. My husband, daughter, and I will treasure them forever. But working with her was so much more. Throughout the entire process she shared my excitement and anticipation and was a supportive voice and dear friend. I would highly recommend her work to anyone looking for family photos.
Mariah is such a pleasure to work with! She is a professional and provides top notch work. Mariah takes time to get to know you so your personality comes through appropriately. e shoot was fun because Mariah put me at ease and didn’t over complicate the situation. thanks Mariah, I have high quality head shots for my professional portfolio now!
I was blown away by the photos Mariah took of our family and especially our little guy (9 months at the time). Mariah is a wonderful photographer. Her work is unique and she made the photo shoot very relaxed and fun. Her patience while working with our son and our dog was great, we never felt rushed. I’d highly recommend her to anyone looking to have family photos done, especially with little ones.
Mariah is very passionate and thorough. She is both enjoyable and easy to work with. Her pricing is very competitive as well.
Thank you for the wonderful experience I had during my photo shoot and to thank you for the beautiful memories I will experience every time I view the photos that were taken. You understood exactly what I was hoping to capture and were so patient with me...that I feel like we obtained exactly the look and the emotion behind the shots I was looking for. I feel as if the idea I want to convey is captured in every single shot! The shots you took will look great on my website, hanging on the walls at my training center, and on the wall of my home too.
