About Maria Newman:I know that 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. Not to say there is anything wrong with a gorgeous, wind-swept, cliff-top elopements (I sure wouldn't complain!), but it isn't always a realistic depiction of the wedding industry as a whole or inclusive of all types of couples.. 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 hope and pray that I can 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 young and the old, 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.
Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?
I am located in Portland, Oregon, and also serve my former home of Hattiesburg, Mississippi. There no additional travel fees for weddings within 250 miles of either location. I am available worldwide for the additional cost of travel and accommodations.
