A voyager




Hey, You made it…

Welcome, I’m happy you found me!

I’m Mia Santa Cruz: mom, wife, and lifelong Long Islander. Camera in hand, I am a keen observer, ready to capture authentic moments and memories. 

I’m an open book; here’s a little more about me!

Capturing life and

Love unposed.


The Santa Cruz vision…

I believe that a more candid and relaxed approach yields the most beautiful photos; whether it’s an engagement, elopement, anniversary, or a bustling wedding, I want you to look back on your day and feel like you’re looking at your real selves. After all, it’s real emotions and connections that create the best stories. My gift as a photographer is observing and elevating the beauty of those real moments. 

I am always staying on top of new photo and editing techniques, allowing me to offer a unique and artistic perspective for my clients. I get a lot of joy from working with people, especially couples; I get how stressful getting your photos taken can be, and I aim to take that stress out of the equation. I want you to really feel like yourself. 

Let’s do this!

I am a true voyager of the heart: I want to meet you where you’re at. I won’t just be taking pictures: I’ll be connecting with you, capturing real moments of ease, love, and joy. 

I feel I have 
found a family
for life.

“So so happy we picked Mia as our wedding photographer! She is a true professional and full of unique ideas for photos […] I am so excited to work with Mia for our various wedding events. She is engaging and knows how to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera. We are very camera shy but Mia was able to help us forget there was a camera at all! Thank you so much for everything you do Mia.”

I invite you to stay a while, and take a look around! I look forward to chatting with you.
