I Love Photography. I love what I do, period. I firmly believe in just a few things... Cherish your family. Be swept away when you've found love. Take pride in your work. If you have friends who make you laugh, spend lots of time with them. Take time to play. Take as many chances as you can, and learn from the mistakes you'll make along the way. I love being able to be a part of anything that involves celebration and LOVE...you'll learn this about me, I wear my heart on my sleeve. I love my husband (who is also my BFF) Mike, and we ADORE our beautiful girl Emma, she is our world. I love Chocolate Cake, especially when it's home made! Read less

I have had the pleasure of working with Maggie and her team over the entire course of my engagement and wedding. She was my photographer for my engagement party, engagement couple session, bridal shower, and of course my wedding day. Her and her team are so down to earth and easy going that they made the whole process a ton of fun. My husband and I are not the most outgoing people, definitely don't enjoy being the center of attention, and my husband is never to thrilled to have his picture taken but from the moment Maggie met us she understood that. She made both of feel so comfortable during all our of photography sessions and honestly each session only made me look forward to working with her on our wedding day even more.

Her team is so easy going to work with both in person and over e-mails. Any questions/concerns I ever had were promptly addressed. All the meetings I had before the wedding were never rushed and Maggie always listened to everything I had to say. She welcomed all of my ideas and even brought the example wedding photos I had sent her on my wedding day to make sure she got the shots I loved most. The quality of her pictures are amazing!! Maggie and her team have an amazing eye for catching candids also. I have so many pictures over the last year and a half that I will cherish for the rest of my life.

Not only was she top notch for her photography, but I also bought save the dates and thank you cards (for the engagement party and wedding) from her. The quality of the cards were beautiful and everyone I sent them to absolutely loved them. I've also have several books she has made for me as well and all of them are perfect. My "brag book" is to die for!

All in all, my big day would not have been what it was without the help of Maggie and her team. She captured so many amazing memories for my husband and I to cherish. I couldn't imagine using anyone but her!

Maggie and her team easily made us feel as if we were part of the family and that was key. She was quickly on board with our vision and made us feel as if the vision was obtainable. Maggie made sure that we met with her a few times before the big day face to face which was actually it's own lovely experience since her studio definitely created that "space" for great picture taking with beautiful windows and all this great light! Her studio is perfect for her other photography so much so that I had my brother and sister-in-law go for their first mommy and daddy baby shots with their son.....which came out beautifully by the way!
As for the day itself, we had the HOTTEST August wedding ever.....and even though we were all sweating through our clothes in the 107 day heat, Maggie and her team took their time to set the right shot, and even fanned us and made sure we had water. They never complained about the heat, they were always smiling and most importantly they made sure we were having fun with them. The party in the evening was a blast and they made sure they took a pile of fun pictures of the guests....Maggie's pics certainly told the story of the entire day...not just some random still shots and that was important to us. They even had some fun on the dance floor as they took action shots of the band and us making fools out of ourselves, lol! For us, we will remember our photographers as "part" of the wedding party, not just a vendor.

Now that we have our proofs, I can say that the pictures are beautiful, fun, energetic, colorful (yet gorgeous black and white shots too!). We are truly happy with the quality of the photos and care that was given when taking them and when dealing with us. There is no question that we will be using them again in the future for additional events, family portraits, etc. We would recommend them to anyone who was looking for an exceptional photographer who also felt like family.

From the moment we met with Maggie we knew she was going to be our first and last appointment. She made us feel so comfortable knowing she was listening to exactly what we wanted. I cannot even explain how much fun we had with Maggie, Barb & Rhiannon the day of the wedding, they are absolutely hysterical. Even with a bridal party of 25 they made everything go beyond smooth! Once we received our pictures we were speechless. They had captured EVERY SINGLE moment. I can’t even look at then without crying, all the pictures show so much emotion. We chose not to have a videographer and we have not one regret with all the pictures that were taken. We are in the process of getting our album done and I have absolutely no doubt it is going to come out amazing just as our Brag Book and our Thank You cards! Maggie, Barb & Rhiannon are the best and we cannot thank them enough & recommend them to everyone!

My husband and I loved working with Maggie and her amazing team. Not only did our pictures come out amazing, but we genuinely enjoyed having them with us on that day. I even had many of my family members comment on how lovely they were to work with. I have already recommended her to a friend of mine who just got engaged, but I also plan on continuing to work with them in the future as our family grows! Maggie and her team not only did a wonderful job for my wedding but also both my sisters, best friends and even new born pictures for my nephew. Doug and I were so blessed to have Maggie apart of our special day! xoxo

There is only one word I can use to describe how my husband and I felt when we saw our wedding photos for the first time: speechless. Maggie and Barb captured our day to a "T" ... We couldn't have asked for anything more.

I first met Maggie with my Mom about a year before our wedding. From the moment we walked into her studio, we felt so incredibly comfortable. The three of us talked about the day for almost two hours, and as we laughed and cried together, I had a hard time believing that this was the first time we had ever met. I felt as if I had known her for years. When I told my husband about our meeting that afternoon, we agreed to sign a contract and never looked back.

Fast-forward to our wedding day, and again, we all felt so calm and collected thanks to Maggie, Barb, and Rhiannon. They were professional, fun, and insanely talented. I put my complete trust in them, and I am so glad I did, for they captured all of the moments that meant the world to me, my husband, and our families, and then some. Despite some time constraints, they were able to scratch off all of our desired photos and still managed to get us to the cocktail hour on time... talk about impressive! Thinking back on all of the special moments we shared together that day, I cannot help but shed a tear and wonder what I would have done without them.

As I write this, I am looking at my "Brag Book," a collection of Maggie's favorite photos from the day, and could not be any happier.

Our experience with Maggie and her wonderful team of women started when Daniel and I started our engagement journey back in October of 2013. I was introduced to Maggie through a good friend of mine, I saw her the wedding albums she created for her sisters during a visit to their home. At first glance, I was stunned by the moments she captured and how beautiful every single picture was. Daniel and I immediately stopped our photographer search and set up an appointment to meet wit her. Long story short, the pictures we have from our engagement shoot were amazing and our relationship with Maggie came so naturally because she made us feel so comfortable. With that said, nothing could have prepared us for the experience we had on the day of our wedding. Our engagement shoot was just a "snap shot" of the incredible photos we would receive from wedding. She truly captured the love between Daniel and I and all of the emotions throughout our day. She never missed a beat...

Daniel and I created such a wonderful relationship with Maggie through meetings and emails and she was so easy to work with throughout the whole wedding planning process. Her and her team took total control of the wedding day timeline which made me feel so confident that our day would go smoothly. They are also just such a joy to be around.

It's hard to put into words how lovely Maggie is inside and out as well as her amazing photography skills and insight. Her demeanor and her spirit are so contagious, it's hard to not be happy around her which makes the picture-taking process feel like you're hanging out with your best friend. We cannot wait to continue our journey with Maggie and her team for future pictures. We don't look at her as our photographer first anymore, we look at her as a friend. We truly love you Maggie, thank you for all you've done for us!

Maggie photographed a friend’s wedding and I kept the “thank you” note for years because I thought the photographs on it were so beautiful. When my now-husband and I got engaged in 2010, Maggie was our first call, and we were thrilled that her personality matched the quality of her work.

As someone who is uncomfortable in the spotlight, Maggie and her team put me at ease immediately. She is lighthearted, funny and encouraging, as were Barb and Lynda, the other photographers on our wedding day. Maggie has a gifted eye for settings that will make your pictures pop. For my bridal portraits, she sat me in a vintage green armchair on our porch that I hadn’t given a second look in years – and the results were amazing. She walks the perfect line between traditional and modern – but never boring.

During the whirlwind of the day she never made us feel rushed, despite the fact that she jumped around on a tight schedule to take photos at our parents’ houses, the church and the venue. She was entirely prepared, and her team comes with a checklist that you have discussed beforehand to make sure they get every shot that you have requested.

The process after the big day was no different. Maggie and her team painstakingly edited our photos to perfection, and gave us a say in the layout of our album (very important for me as a control freak!). True, most photographers are expensive these days, but not all of them are worth it. Maggie IS. I would have sacrificed so many other aspects of my wedding before I would have given her up, and the many people we have recommended her to (including my sister) have loved her as much as we do.

I can't recommend Maggie and her team highly enough! Starting from the first day we met with Maggie she has been nothing short of spectacular. Delivering outstanding pictures is only part of the experience with Maggie. She really has a nack for connecting with you and making you feel like family. My husband hates posing for pictures and he was even shocked at how Maggie has the ability to make you super comfortable. We couldn't be happier with our final product and will definitely be using Maggie for all of our future life events!

We were lucky to have had Maggie and her assistant photographers Linda and Barbara be a part of our special day. Their kindness, good humor and professional nature helped me feel at ease while I was getting ready (not an easy task to tackle with someone who is as camera-shy as I am) and helped set a precedence for the rest of the day. I was so pleased with everything... from the unique shots to the amazing finished products, I would highly recommend Maggie and her assistant photographers for your big day!
