Tell us about your company name.
Trista is my first name and Maja is my middle name. Maja is pronounced with a soft "J" like in French.
Why should someone hire you?
I'm like having an extra person in your wedding party, but I'm also a photographer that loves capturing weddings.
What drew you to this field/how did you get started?
I was a dog action photographer when a friend got engaged and wanted me to take his engagement photos. I had a lot of fun at the session and wanted to do more.

I had a wedding where both the bride and the groom surprised each other with a full-on song and dance routine at the reception.

Communicate with your wedding vendors and don't be afraid to ask questions.

Up for anything, open-minded, and easy-going.

I'd be a Chef. I love to make food for people.

Either a hot bubble bath with a glass of wine or watching a movie on my couch with my partner.
Tell us about your pets, if you have any.
I have three Australian Shepherds and a bunch of cats, I'm a completely sane cat lady. (I moved into a feral cat colony three and a half years ago and I'm a bit of a softy. I've gotten everyone spayed and neutered and take care of several in the house and more in the front yard.)
What are some of your favorite places to eat—either everyday spots or special occasion splurges?
That's so tough, but I'm always up for good tacos, Korean BBQ, sushi or pasta.
