Who's Behind the Camera?

Hi! I'm Maria Hargrove(Cueto is my maiden name)

  • Born in Brazil, I'm a wife to a hard working husband,  and mother of a beautiful , spunky 4 year old daughter. I speak 4 languages. 
  • Growing up : I  lived in Brazil, Canada, Italy, and of course Unites States. My father and his job granted me the opportunity to know the world and its beauty. 

 Currently, I am located in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.  I service Tuscaloosa and Birmingham area for portrait sessions, and the entire state of Alabama, Tenessee, Mississippi, Florida, & Georgia for weddings. Destination weddings should be booked at least 9 months in advance (unless it is on the Florida Panhandle).

Where did I get the name Beautiful Horizon Photography?

I believe a business name should have a meaning or define where it originated from. If  you are wondering where the name "Beautiful Horizon" comes from?  Well as I mentioned before, I was born and raised in Brazil ,in the city of "Belo Horizonte", this translates to ... can you guess?? Yup! Beautiful Horizon! I may have left that beautiful place at only the age of 10, but its who I am, and that place and people there are what shaped me to be who I am today.

I see anything in front of me (Horizon) as an opportunity to capture beauty. I want to capture YOUR beautiful relationship with loved ones, and special moments in your life.

Why choose Beautiful Horizon Photography?

Im not here to capture your portraits. I want to capture your moments! Be prepared to have a fun time enjoying your family/loved ones, and let me be the fly on the wall (with a camera) . Its totally ok if your kiddos don't want to stay still(or smile until their jaws hurt), & PDA is totally appropriate  and appreciated when working with me! When you look back in the future at your photos, I want you to remember all the funny things your children said or did to make you all laugh or sweet secrets you may have shared in each others ears that brought you to blush .
