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

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!

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 has a gift that many photographers never attain, the ability to see inside their subjects soul. Her portraits of our daughter are extraordinary! At 16, then 20, she captured her beauty from within and you sense it the second you look at them. If there's a wedding in the future it can't happen without Maggie !! Bravo Ms. McGill !!

In my opinion, having a wonderful photographer is one of the most important parts of planning your wedding. It's through their eyes that you remember their day. Maggie was referred to us by a friend, and then was the photographer at my sister's wedding a few years back. When I got engaged, she was one of my first phone calls. Before we even had a wedding date, I asked her if there were any days she wouldn't be available, so I would know not to pick that day. That's how important it was to me to have her as part of our day.
Where do I begin.. For one, from the very beginning, she was easy to get in contact with and stayed in touch by both phone and e-mail. Their hours were very accommodating and they were happy to meet us on weekends, which was really our only option. During our "planning" session she happily grinned at my 10 pages of Pintrist ideas. I knew she would be considerate in taking a few, but never in a million years did I expect Barb, one of her sidekicks, to show up the day of my wedding with the exact list so my every hope and dream of a picture would be fulfilled. (How's that for patience and customer service?)
Maggie, Barb, Lynda, and their team will fit right into your wedding party. They put everyone at ease, make them laugh, but at the same time know how to leave the quiet and sentimental moments undisturbed, but captured. Who wants to be putting on a wedding dress with your mom and sister and have a photographer be shifting you around to "get the shot"? Not me. They were all respectful, kind, and yet very talented--- getting shots that i wouldn't have even thought could show the emotion they did. Almost like having a personal paparazzi who you actually like.
My photos all came out great, and the options we had to choose from were amazing. Not only will Maggie and her team amaze you with their work, but their happy, fun demeanors are an added bonus to make your day as special as it should be. I would recommend Maggie to anyone!

Maggie and Barb did the most amazing job for our vow renewal! My husband (who studied film in school and is very picky with photographs) says Maggie has a gift that is very rare. I completely agree! She has the ability to catch special moments, looks on faces, and really capture her subject in a way that most cannot. When we received our proofs they took our breath away. The photographs were so beautiful and unique. Maggie always delivers WAY above your expectations. Not only that but she and her crew are the nicest and most fun people.
