Moe ( Mohammed Ali) is the greatest photographer hands down. MIA has Superior photography, customer service, competitive pricing... this list really could go on. I appreciate your help and excitement for me and my sisters. The photo shoot was the highlight of our annual sisters trip and now we have awesome pictures to remind us of this time. Thank you for everything. More...

Moe is amazing! If I could give more than 5 stars, I would!! I have always wanted family beach pictures, so I contacted several photographers prior to our vacation to Florida. Moe contacted me immediately, offered advice on what to wear, and suggested several places to meet. During the shoot, he was professional, helpful, and easy to work with. He was so wonderful with my daughters (especially my 3 year old who isn't always cooperative!). The pictures Moe took are absolutely beautiful! I am so happy I decided to have these pictures taken and highly recommend Moe to anyone looking for a photographer! More...

MiA did a family photo session on the beach for me in August 2015, and I couldn't have been happier with the entire process. I get tons of compliments on the pictures. I was especially impressed when we saw the proofs. It was a slightly overcast evening when we took the pictures, not as "pretty" of a day as I had hoped, but MiA was able to edit the photos to make it look like a perfect day. More...

We had the pleasure to have our maternity photo shoot with Moe this past Sunday at Deerfield Beach. From the moment I reached out last week to inquire about his packages, location(s) and pricing he was extremely detailed and easy to communicate with. We texted back and forth throughout the week until Sunday and he gave me his professional opinion in regards to clothing/attire. The day of the photo shoot went very smooth and was a lot of fun. I brought my two boys along and Moe was attentive to both and captured great photos. Once I have my final pictures in I will show the great work Moe does! Thank you! More...

Is there 6 stars ??? I wanted a photo shoot but could not seem to get the right fit for price, time and photagraper. I went on groupan and of course you would say you get what you pay for so even though the groupan price was low reading the few reviews I wanted to give it a shot. My first initial contact I was comfortable he was excited, he gave ideas, scheduled right away and sent all instructions and we met on time he even brought balloons and did regular weather checks! He was friendly and made my toddler girls feel so comfortable he even got them to smile. He took extra pics of myself, mom and aunt not part of plan. But to my surprise I am happy I choose Moe. Cannot wait to see our pics and use him for our wedding. As I told him it start of wonderful friendship. More...

MIA photographer Moe did a shoot of my family this summer. I wasnt expecting what I got from the groupon... He has a great personality that brought the BEST out in my family, from my 1 month old grandson to the oldest member whose well over 50. The experience was awesome and the results were spectacular. The photos were so good and reasonably priced I took more than the groupon allowed. I would use MIA again and highly recommend this company. Not only do I have beautiful photos but also wonderful memories of thpat day. More...

A friend of mine referred me to Moe. Last week Tuesday I had my maternity shoot with him. From the moment I contacted Moe, he was extremely helpful. He provides great customer service, he is very affordable, very attentive and knowledgeable. I can go on and on. My fiancee and I had a great time shooting with him. We took several shots and they all turned out very beautiful. I can't wait to take my engagement photos and also newborn pictures for our baby boy. I will definitely recommend him to my friends and family. More...

Our experience with Moe was amazing! We contacted him with short notice- the day of- as we decided the day after we got engaged to get engagement photos done on the beach while we were still on vacation. He responded promptly and he gave us a very reasonable quote. During our shoot, it was clear that he had done many shoots on the beach before as he knew exactly how to direct us. He was also very open to us suggesting our own poses/requests, and even extended our shoot a bit to make sure that we caught the best colors of sunset. He sent us a few preview photos within 20 minutes after the shoot ended, which helped tide us over until we got our gallery! We couldn't be happier with how our photos turned out! More...

Q&A

Comfort. Being able to quickly establish a rapport with clients is key to taking a great photograph. This is reflected in their actions, their poses and the photographs. It is being playful, or confident, being intimate, or vulnerable, but always relaxed. I don't like stiff photographs, those are from an era gone by. I enjoy learning about people, listening to their stories, both as a photographer but also as an academic. I have an degree in sociology and working on a graduate degree in social research at Trinity College. Exploring and enjoying all that is Dublin and Ireland.

What kind of photographs do you expect? Send me some samples, from anywhere, pinterest or instagram perhaps. In most cases clients have already looked at my galleries and have seen and fallen in love with poses and styles in photographs I've already taken. Basically I want to know what the client expects from a good photograph, or from the experience of the photoshoot, so I can provide exactly that. I can shoot for a variety of styles and am an expert editor. I strive to showcase my clients in the best possible light and can subtly retouch an image to soften their skins-make it appear smoother, remove blemishes and dark circles under their eyes, whiten their teeth a few shades, enhance the eyes...

I love the interaction, I am a very social person, who has an interest in people, getting to know them, their stories, sharing moments and memories with them. The photographs they will cherish will recall the moment, bring back the feelings, and perhaps memories of me. Being a photographer at a wedding is being heavily involved, sharing the joy and happiness of the couple, helping to set the mood and capture the moments they will treasure for a lifetime.

I was first inspired by photography in high school, in Long Island, just outside of New York City. I volunteered to be the photographer for the school newspaper. Once I took the first shot with that camera, a nikon that was obsolete even back then--twenty years ago--I fell in love. I became a pro many years later, after a career in corporate, government and non-profit management in New York and Washington, DC.

It was in 2014 that I started MiA Photo Design in South Florida, when my daughter was a few months old. I purchased another old, but professional-grade Nikon, to capture the precious moments of her childhood, and began getting photography gigs through friends and family-word of mouth. Their positive feedback encouraged me to offer my services professionally. I have received several awards and hundreds of reviews from satisfied customers over the last 5 years and I hope for many more in the future!

I love what I do, I love seeing people smile and capturing the moment. I'm easy going, worldly, good conversationalist, and have an ability to put people at ease very quickly.

Services

I strive to provide clients with an amazing wedding photography experience, with high quality images that are creative, clean and crisp. I aim to capture the romance, fun, and emotional moments that will become treasured memories that will last a lifetime. I am a documental photographer and catalogue the entire day-the dressing, bridal portraits, ceremony and reception with hints of fashion and fine-art photography techniques.

The days of stiff, posed studio portraits are long gone! Today, individual and client families prefer a photos that shows them as they really are: smiling and happy, without looking forced. I aim to capture genuine, emotional images. Capturing the client and groups in ways that appear spontaneous and candid is what I strive to do.

Perfect for sweet sixteens, christening, graduation parties and other milestone events. This package also works for corporate events like conferences, trade shows, marketing events, product launches and other public relations events, ad employee functions like retirement parties, company picnics and holiday parties and receptions.
