Hi! My name is Maria Boyagi and I've been taking photos for the past 10 years (woah, can't believe it myself). 

Socialime started as a photography studio in Ukraine. When I moved to Australia, it turned into a social media consulting company with photography as part of its packages. Now, almost 6 years later, I'm based in New York and together with some very talented copywriters, editors, videographers and social media managers we have created content for hundreds of businesses. 

Photography of food, people and places is more than a passion, it's my life. Whether you're here to order a commission, get help in figuring out what to do with your Instagram or to ask me to collaborate on a super exciting project, you can be sure I'll put all my energy into it.

Socialime was exactly what we were looking for. We were trying to do our social media ourselves, but with everything else we needed to do to run our business the social media kept getting put last. Our Instagram and Facebook audiences have grown significantly since Mary took over the reigns from us and her photographs are beautiful!
— Lisa Thompson, co-owner at The Farm Wholefoods
Great to work with. Organised, easy to communicate with and very responsive. Beautiful photos!
— Dana Katinsky, owner at Grandma's Little Bakery
Socialime team is responsible for all our social media strategies and communications. Their copywriters found the right voice for us very quickly and our accounts’s audiences multiplied by 10 times since we started working together.
— Anthony Kaplan, co-owner at the Corner House, Hunter Gatherer, Bondi Bowling Club
We couldn’t be more pleased with the results. Socialime helped us with social media since our opening and it had a great affect on our business. Almost every day we get customers who saw our products on social media and couldn’t resist to come and try.
— Adam Tedja, co-owner at Upperroom
Beautiful, just what we needed!
— Michelle Sokialis, owner at Alexander's Patisserie
Socialime is a real pleasure to work with. The team is creative, capable and reliable, and the photographers are excellent. Our new website couldn’t look any better! Thanks :-)
— Ed from Inside Out Nutritious Goods
Maria is not your ordinary social media wiz, she has a special gift to understand what catches on for a specific business and applies laser beam attention to it. Her photography is phenomenal, we received great traction and will continue working with Mary in the long term.
