My name is Maria Horford Samuels, but I go by Mia. My business name (Miah Photography) came to be because people call me Mia, and I wanted to be Mia Photography, but someone on Instagram already had the name. So I added an H on the end so it could still be pronounced "Mia" and I thought it was so creative because my last name starts with H lol!!! Anywayyyyyyyyyy, 7 years later I still confuse people and I just laugh about it with all my clients/friends!
I am a full time wedding, elopement & portrait photographer based in Michigan. I have been shooting for 6+ years now, & I love every minute of it!! I'm married to my best friend, Cameron, and we have the cutest little Coton de Tulear pup named Theo! We are high school sweethearts and we got married on our 9 year dating anniversary.
I fell in love with photography for the first time when I was in high school. I had a blast setting up photo shoots in my backyard for fun with friends and family. Once freshman year of college came around, I decided that I wanted to start my own photography business and I never looked back!!!
A few things that I love (other than photography): peanut butter cookies, TRAVELING, the Celtics, spending time with family/friends, and laughing.
