I can't say enough positive things about Maggie. I am so glad that I found her and that she is the one who did our photos. I truly believe that she has given (well, we paid for the photos obviously, but still...) us a priceless gift -- beautiful memories of one of the most special days of our lives! We came from Kansas to get married at City Hall in New York, so we made the appointment with Maggie sight unseen. I had seen her work online, so I knew she was talented and I just hoped that we would have some nice pictures. Maggie had great ideas and was constantly coming up with different things that we could try to get some good photos. Her enthusiasm was amazing. She was always encouraging us to do certain looks and to get us looking our best. She genuinely cares about how our photos turn out. She adjusted my husband's shirt when it started looking a little out of place. She stuck up for us when she was trying to get a certain shot and the guy behind the counter started complaining. She was just all we could've asked for and more. Our photos turned out AMAZING. We were so happy with them. I've received SO many compliments on them. Everyone remarks about how great they look. My mother-in-law had an issue with one of the photos -- due to where my husband was standing, it looked like a flagpole was coming out of his head. Well, she didn't notice this when she ordered the photo print online. She only saw it when the photo arrived. So, she emailed Maggie about it. Maggie sent a new photo with the flagpole removed, no hassle. She is just so great. She also put together the sweetest slideshow for us -- people have told us that it's the best they've ever seen. I am SO GLAD that she was our photographer.

I’m honestly finding it difficult to find the words to explain Maggie. In short, she is absolutely amazing. Our wedding was November 17th 2012, and although we haven’t received our wedding photos yet, I am 100% certain they will be FANTASTIC and I just had to spread the word as soon as possible. Maggie shot our engagement photos as well as our engagement party photos and I have to say that everything came out totally perfect. I think I even mentioned this to Maggie the day of our wedding, but I never once had to worry about her seeing my vision for our special day…I felt as if she totally understood me and what we wanted our day to be like. It could be because she was so wonderful throughout our entire engagement. She made sure she had a clear understanding of what we wanted beforehand and after that I just completely trusted her. As many other brides mentioned, she was also extremely calming on the day of. I wouldn’t really say I was stressed out that day, but when things started to pick up (e.g. the ceremony starting, right before our first look,etc.) Maggie was right there and kept reminding me to breathe and to take it all in.

Again, I can’t really explain how fortunate I am to have found Maggie. She is such a beautiful person, inside and out and I look forward to all the other events in our life that she’ll hopefully be able to capture for us.

Maggie is absolutely AMAZING! We chose her after months of research. The minute we met her, I felt completely confident that she would do an amazing job. She is so talented - and makes you feel completely comfortable. It was like a close friend documenting our special day. Our pictures are stunning. She got all the small details that I didn't even get to see that day. Book Maggie to document your special day!

Maggie was phenomenal... superb... everything that I hoped she could be! We discovered her, while planning our somewhat unusual wedding, by googling "New York City Hall wedding photographer." In perusing the work in featured on her blog, I knew she was absolutely our first choice as wedding photographer.

We arranged our entire wedding in 6 weeks, which was relatively easy, since our plan was to marry at City Hall and then celebrate with dinner that evening. Even though we were "eloping" (kind of... our immediate family was invited), we still wanted to have the day documented professionally. Based on her obvious talent and unique style, I emailed Maggie. I was thrilled when we found that she was available!

The first time I spoke with Maggie, I knew that it would be a wonderful fit. Maggie is incredibly warm, and very visibly loves her job. She was accomodating to any and all requests that my husband and I had, however she used all of her varied experiences to help us develop the very best plan to document our day.

Maggie was incredibly easy to work with, and to get along with. Our entire wedding was tiny, 9 including my groom and me. Intially, I was concerned that we wouldn't be able to feel ourselves with a stranger in the mix. I could not have been more wrong. Maggie develops an instant and affable repoir that allowed my family and me to feel greatly comfortable. In turn, we truly looked natural in our photos.

Our images were available to us online within the month. We could not have been happier with our photographs. I look at my photos all the time, and am able to relive our perfect day each time. The prints that we purchased are beautiful. I am very pleased with the editing, color and quality. Maggie also put together a lovely slideshow with our wedding song.

I look forward to reliving our wedding days for years to come through her photography. Her ability to capture all of the raw emotion of the day was remarkable. I cannot say enough about our experience with Maggie. It was a true pleasure discovering her, meeting her, and working with her. Someday, I hope that we have reason to hire her again!

Thank you, Maggie, for giving us so much.

There are not enough words to describe how wonderful our experience with Maggie Harkov was from beginning to end. I walked away from our first meeting with Maggie knowing that she would be a part of our wedding day. Of course I feel in love with Maggie's work but I wanted to make sure the photographer we chose was someone we would be comfortable with on such an important day. I can say without any hesitation that Maggie was, hands down, the best vendor we worked with throughout the wedding planning process.

Not only does Maggie have a gift for capturing amazing images, but she has an ability to make everyone around her feel comfortable and confident while getting thier pictures taken. My husband is not a huge fan of having his photograph taken but the moment Maggie started shooting our engagement photos he was having a blast, joking around and was actually excited to have Maggie capture the big day!

On the day of the wedding Maggie was a breath of fresh air. Maggie helped calm me down while it was raining and snowing (in October!) on our wedding day. She reminded me to breathe when my flowers didn't turn out as I had planned and offered to help sew my dress when it ripped right before the ceremony. I honestly do not know what we would have done without Maggie!

Now, a month after our wedding day, we are reliving every wonderful moment when we look at our pictures. I still get phone calls from family members who are in tears when they see the pictures. They are truly incredible. I could not have asked or wished for better results.

Maggie is truly gifted in so many ways. She is beauitful inside and out. Any bride will be lucky to have Maggie be part of her wedding day. I'm already looking forward to a possible baby bump shoot!

Words cannot adequately describe how amazing Maggie is.

First, our wedding photographs are breathtaking. Maggie has a unique ability to capture real emotions - they are no forced smiles or awkward poses - just a gorgeous documentation of your day. I never thought I would be someone that hung a large wedding photo in her house but sure enough, there is very large Maggie picture above my fireplace. And honestly, it looks more like a piece of art than a "wedding" photograph.

That said, if you visit Maggie's website, you can see for yourself how talented she is. What her website cannot convey is how great she is to work with. She is warm, responsive, is genuinely interested in who couples are and how they the envision their wedding day. She will answer any questions you have (even if its not about photography) and is an overall wealth of information about all things wedding related.

Maggie is definitely one of the best wedding decisions we made, and we know that she'll be documenting our important life moments for many years to come.

We were incredibly lucky to find Maggie to document our wedding day. I had looked at many vendors online & the images I wanted for our day were never quite right, until I looked at Maggie's website. Her style of photos was just the right mix for us of playful, stylish & contemporary & exactly what we had been looking for.

From start to finish Maggie was a breath of fresh air when compared to many other vendors & was always available to talk through aspects of the day I hadn't even thought of. Her postive energy & lovely nature was always a gift to have around on the day itself.

If like myself, you have a big & complicated family, Maggie handles everyone with grace & ease. Any family sensitivities will be dealt with effortlessly. My Father commented on how comfortable it was having Maggie there on the day to organise the photos & capture the day without any fuss. Everyone was incredibly impressed.

My husband has been brought to tears by the incredible wedding photos & we were definitely wowed with the results. As was everyone else we have shown them to so far. We have some really elegant & incredibly special shots of the day & for that we are incredibly grateful.

Thank you Maggie, we look forward to working with you in the future.

Having beautiful photographs to remember our wedding day was the most important aspect of wedding planning to me. I searched the internet for days and followed up on recommendations from friends, but was not satisfied (quite frankly I was horrified) by what I was seeing. And then I found Maggie and everything fell into place. I was mesmerized by the pictures on her blog and remember thinking that if I had even 1 photo that turned out as nice I would be happy. I am thrilled to say that I now have hundreds of amazing images documenting my wedding--just sat down to figure out what ones I wanted to frame and can't decide!

But it is not just the quality of her work that is so impressive. Maggie was a resource to me throughout my entire planning process (I asked her about recommendations for hair/make-up, florists, etc.) and the most calming force on my actual wedding day (an outdoor wedding with major weather complications amongst other things). She has become our dear friend, and my husband and I both feel so lucky to have found her.

There really aren't words to describe how wonderful Maggie is--as a photographer and as a person. She is flexbile, can roll with anything, and manages to capture the most amazing images. She is worth every penny.

This is the one area that my husband said he was in control of. He spotted an engagement shoot that Maggie shot a couple of years ago and he absolutely fell in love with her work. Once I saw her stuff I immediately fell in love too. Maggie is BEYOND sweet, SO TALENTED, and just a joy to work with. If you don't want the same tired boring wedding photos and you would like a creative & artistic approach than Maggie is your girl. I can't say thank you enough for the work and professionalism that she displayed and I would 110% refer and recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer. I almost want to get married again so I can have her shoot another special day!

Trying to decide on a wedding photographer was one of the biggest decision for me. The pictures taken are going to be how you document and remember your day. It was important for me to find someone who not only understood us as a couple, but also someone who we felt very comfortable around. I spent weeks online looking through various blogs and websites and then I came across Maggie. She was featured on Style Me Pretty (my go to blog for everything wedding!) and I fell in love with the pictures I saw. I immediately contacted her and set up an appointment. I met with other photographers prior to Maggie and it was all business - what are we looking for, what is our budget, what are our expectations, etc. Maggie was different - it was like meeting an old friend for coffee to catch up. We didn't start talking actual "business" until probably an hour into our meeting. She took the time to really get to know us and our story. I immediately felt completely comfortable with her and was sold!

The wedding day of course didn't go as 100% planned. It was a little frantic and crazy the morning of, and my husband and I were both a little stressed. Maggie was my calming force - she kept reminding me of the bigger picture (I was about to marry my best friend) and that everything was going to work out. She was absolutely amazing to work with. Our schedule for pictures got derailed, and she took it with a grain of salt. Her professionalism with dealing with a huge bridal party, crazy family, and being completely off schedule was truly something to admire. It was as if nothing could phase her! She kept making the most of every moment that she was with us and continued to click away. The end result is that we walked away with not only AMAZING pictures, but also a new friend!
