fun facts about me

I was in high school at an engineering internship with my sister in Tulsa when I got a call from my parents that they were traveling to Istanbul, I got a jealous and decided to cut my internship short and join my parents on their trip! Before we left, I had picked up a starter camera from Best Buy with a little help from my tech savvy brother.

My mom prepared me and told me that Istanbul was going to be amazing and that my eyes were going to see things they've never seen before. She was absolutely correct! The trip was amazing and I was lucky enough to capture a few photos along the way and share them on social media. From there, people raved about the photos and my passion for photography all began!

Sharing photos from my travel was just simple fun! It eventually turned into this amazing business that I call Mariam Saifan Photography. I am a self-taught photographer with a passion! I love getting to know my clients, hearing their stories, and capturing memories to last them a lifetime!  

I truly love what I do and strive to serve and create beautiful work every day!

Everyone starts somewhere.. What's your story?

It all started in the summer of 2007...
