My aim is to serve couples with an open heart.
In today's wedding industry, blog posts, Instagram accounts, and magazines tend to favor the same types of weddings and couples over and over again. It isn't always a realistic depiction of the wedding industry as a whole or inclusive of all types of people. My aim is to be there for real couples from all walks of life. My joy comes from meeting new and different people and learning their unique and beautiful love stories. I long to create a welcoming space for every religion, race, culture, gender, age and size, for those planning big weddings or small, for the do-it-yourselfers and the master planners, the quiet and the outgoing, the camera shy and the naturally photogenic. If you feel drawn to or touched by my photography, I want to meet you and offer you an experience that comes from a place of utmost passion and love.
From the Journal
Thank you for everything! You exceeded all of our hopes and expectations! I loved getting to know you at MyMoon’s bar the night before. By the time we were taking photos it already felt like we were old friends. You were so calm during the rush of the morning, and I cannot thank you enough for that! You made the day feel like a breeze and you made the photoshoots feel so natural. You have such a beautiful heart and your adventurous spirit, mixed with your stunning ability to capture the mood of any moment makes you a total treasure! We’re beyond grateful and honored to have had you photograph such a special day.”
Words can’t express how happy my wife and I are with the work that Maria did at our wedding. She took fantastic engagement photos and did an incredible job at capturing our relationship and the gorgeous sunlight the day we took those photos. The photos of the wedding itself were unbelievable. Maria’s photography seemed keyed-in to our colors and our aesthetic, and so many of the candids captured the joy of our friends, our family and ourselves. She went out of her way to capture us behind the scenes, and in the whirlwind of the evening we even forgot some of the small moments until we saw the pictures. My wife and I love looking back over the photos! Maria was definitely the best investment we made for our wedding; I can’t imagine having more perfect photos to remember the best day of our lives.
Maria is a delight! From the beginning with our engagement photos to the end with our wedding, Maria was nothing short of fantastic. From the moment you meet her, you can tell that she is passionate about her craft and truly cares about the people she photographs. She was so patient with us during our engagement shoot, and made such an effort to know all the tiny details of our wedding. An entire paragraph could be written on how talented she is, but her gorgeous images can totally speak for themselves! She makes magic happen at weddings, catching all the details, and delivers such a beautifully authentic, finished product. Our photos were full of dreamy lighting, timeless moments, and I couldn't be happier! It was a lovely experience working with her, and so reassuring to know that, through an already stressful time, we were in good hands. Thank you, Maria, for capturing all the love at our wedding; we'll truly cherish these photographs for a lifetime!
I had a wonderful experience working with Maria Newman Photography for my recent wedding. Maria was prompt and professional in all our interactions, and truly cared about capturing every special moment. She was a pleasure to work with during all the hustle of our wedding day, and spoke with me multiple times beforehand to make sure none of the important details were overlooked.
My photos are absolutely beautiful! I love, love, love them. The lighting is beautiful, the focus pristine, and I felt like we captured moments, not poses. Maria turned my wedding memories into beautiful pieces of art that I look forward to displaying. I would wholeheartedly recommend Maria Newman Photography for a wedding.
