About Maria Melin

Fotograf Maria Melin i New YorkFirst a Journalist and now a Photographer.

Maria didn´t start out as a Photographer but as a Journalist at a small newspaper in Norrland, Sweden.

On her journalist assignments she often had no access to a Photographer so she started to take pictures by herself.

It was then she discovered that she enjoyed it and also that taking photos was her natural talent.

From Sweden to the US

During her growth Maria went to the US as an exchange student, she went to Minnesota and during that time she also travelled around in the country. Her interest for the US aroused. The journey back to the US "for good" was in 1990. In her one year education within "PR and International Communication" in Stockholm - you studied half of the year in the US and the course also included practical training at a company in the US.
This was perfect for Maria, she wanted to get away from Sweden and was ready for new aventures in the US! And off she went!

Photographer at ABC
celebrities - Tom Cruise, Glenn Close, Elton John
Her practical vocational training place became "ABC Television Photo and PR department" in New York. It was there she developed her skill for photographing and she also got the opportunity to take pictures of famous people and actors.

She travelled around the US with ABC´s news department and she got to meet among others five presidents: Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, George Bush, Bill Clinton and George Bush Jr. Her work have also been published in many american newspapers like the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Newsweek och Los Angeles Times.
After given birth to her first child she decided to cut down on her travelling and started to freelance for ABC and also for many Swedish newspapers as for example: Aftonbladet, Expressen, Amelia and Göteborg Posten.

Facts: Wedding assignments

Maria gets most of her assignments during Spring and Autumn.
The assignments take approx between 2½ - 3 hours.
Closed for holiday July-August.

- The easist way to reach her is by e-mail. She reads e-mail a couple of times per day. You can also reach her by phone. (Maria needs to know the time for the wedding and also sometime the time for "hair and makeup" to be able to plan for the photographing. During Spring and Autumn she is often fully booked, so contact her in time!)
Marias contact information you will find at her website - »

- If you do not have any special wishes for the place for your photos, Maria can provide you with a lot of different places.

The most famous places for the photographing are:

Central Park green and nice with the striking New York skyline in the background, along Fifth Avenue with the city pulse, Times Square in the middle of the center and on the other side of Brooklyn Bridge with the Manhattan skyline in the background and South Street Seaport and also down in the subway.
All suggestions are welcome! It is just fun and exciting!

Maria also takes photos during the wedding ceremony and if you get married in the Swedish Church she also will take pictures in the Church after the ceremony.

- The day after the wedding the pictures will be delivered on a CD. A couple of pictures and also some enlargements are included.
(The CD can also be sent by post to Sweden (or other countries), if lack of time)
If you prefer a movie, that can also be arranged, but it will take a couple of days extra, due to the development.

Times Square New YorkGrand Central Station New York

If it should be "bad weather", the photographing will be in the studio or inside another nice building in New York, as for example, Grand Central Station.

Marias tip about New York: - I think you shall walk around as much as possible in New York (of course if you are able to) because you will miss a lot otherwise. Split Manhattan in four sections and walk around: Lower East side, Upper East side, Lower West side and Upper West side.
