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

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.

Can not say enough about Maggie Barbara and Lyn! From our engagement shoot all the way through planning for the wedding our experience with Maggie was amazing! They were so easy to work with. They took amazing shots without being overly papparazzi in your face. They made me feel very relaxed and comfortable. I knew I had nothing to worry about on the day of the wedding because our engagement shoot was fantastic. Not only are they really sweet down to earth people, they were extremely professional and accommodating.

The photographs truly captured the personalities of the kids. Maggie and her assistants don't just take pictures- they tell a story. By the end of the night, it feels like they are a part of the family and one of your guests.

The entire team works so well together and take photos in a non-offensive way as to not draw attention to themselves. We couldn't be happier with our photos and album and would highly recommend Maggie McGill Photography : )

Maggie did a great job with our wedding photography and engagement photos. We are very happy with the photos, and she helped make things run smoothly on the wedding day. She clearly enjoys what she does. My favorite photos from the wedding were from our "first look" before the ceremony; if anyone out there is on the fence about doing that, I'd highly recommend it! Maggie had a great suggestion for the location and captured those moments beautifully. On a personal note, it gave my husband and me a little time together before the ceremony when it was just us (well, us and the photo crew!) and it did not at all take away from the ceremony itself. Also, the album was beautiful and definitely worth the extra cost. I've heard a lot of friends say that they didn't order an album from their photographer and were just going to put something together themselves. Many still haven't done that years later. I love ours both for the selection and composition of the photos and the professional quality.

Maggie is such a SWEETHEART!!! I highly recommend her and her crew. They will go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable and happy during your special event. When we first arrived to Maggie's studio, she offered us a drink and made us feel right at home. While sitting on her couch she asked us questions about our families, what we want from a wedding venue, etc. We spent at least an hour just discussing "us". This was all before deciding we were using Maggie. I was so impressed with how much she truly CARED about us. Once we signed the contract, Maggie was very open to new ideas that we had and had many great ideas to share with us. On the day of our wedding, Maggie arrived early, which was so nice because you really do not need anything to stress about on your wedding day. She got started taking pictures right away. We hardly noticed her because she blended right in. Throughout the day, Maggie captured EVERY moment. We had so much FUN taking our pictures. She make sure that we enjoyed ourselves during the photo shoot, and that showed in every picture.
After the wedding, our pictures came back in a timely matter. I honestly cannot remember exactly how long at this time. Once we received our proofs, Maggie sat down with us to go over the pictures for our album. Again, we met in her studio and felt right at home. She spent more time than allotted for our appointment, but Maggie did not rush us at all. Quite the opposite! She wanted me to make sure that we were 100% happy with our choice. The album came out BEAUTIFULLY!! I look at our proofs and our album all the time! It is so fun to share the memories over and over. At first I was hesitant to spend so much money on a photographer. I am SO HAPPY that I did. I have never regretted my decision.
Since the wedding, we have used Maggie for many other events. And each time we are MORE THAN HAPPY with her! I really cannot say enough good things about her!! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER!

My husband and I were so happy when we chose Maggie as our wedding photographer. As part of our wedding package we were able to get engagement photos done. Maggie suggested that we take them in Asbury Park at dusk. They were the most beautiful photos! She was able to have us pose in front of a chain link fence and a wall painted with three different shades of green. To most those sound like interesting choices but they were the most amazing photos. Maggie had a vision each and every time. The lighting was just perfect with the sun setting. Just amazing! Our save the dates and guest signing book came out great!

When it came time to choosing a photographer for the wedding, we just knew Maggie was our number one choice. You need to feel comfortable with your photographer so they can get casual and formal pictures. She was able to make us laugh and feel beautiful all in the same shot. She is so talented!

We are so thankful to have met Maggie and be able to call her a friend. In a few weeks she will be taking photos of our soon to be one year old. We are so happy that we can share this special time with her. We are looking forward to her taking our family photos for many years to come! Thank you Maggie and crew for all that you do!

We are so thankful to have met Maggie and be able to call her a friend. In a few weeks she will be taking photos of our soon to be one year old. We are so happy that we can share this special time with her. We are looking forward to her taking our family photos for many years to come! Thank you Maggie and crew for all that you do! Read less

I cannot recommend Maggie McGill Photography highly enough! Maggie, and her team, has done an AMAZING job EVERY time we've worked with them. We first met Maggie in the summer of 2010 when she did our engagement photo shoot. We knew, even before we saw her incredible pictures, that we wanted her to be our wedding photographer. Having been IN and TO many weddings prior to my own, I had the ability to witness a variety of wedding photographers. Many of them were in the way (blocking the view of the bride and groom throughout the entire night) and some were plain rude. I didn't want ANY of that happening at our wedding. Thank goodness for Maggie being recommended to us by a friend. She was fantastic from the moment we met her and ever since! On our wedding day, she caught so many beautiful moments. She was never once in our way or the way of anyone else. At the reception, she and hear team blended in with everyone, but still managed to catch every important moment (and lots of other fun ones!)

Maggie and her team did an amazing job on our wedding day. Not only does she have reasonably priced wedding packages, but the quality of the photography and the professionalism by Maggie and her team are top notch.

Maggie did such an outstanding job with our engagement photo shoot AND our wedding day that we told her she was stuck with us forever. :) We weren't kidding. She has since done our maternity photo session and recently our newborn photo session. There are few people in the world you trust even coming close to your newborn, but Maggie is one of them! She was so gentle with our little baby and helped capture moments we will cherish forever.

If you take the opportunity to meet her, you will see what I'm saying. She is genuinely kind, with a friendly smile and a big heart. She has a passion for her work and an amazing amount of talent to go with it. She is efficient in her communication and produces high quality products.

From the day we got engaged, I knew there was one thing of most importance to me - Our ever lasting photos from our special day. Knowing families who have used Maggie throughout the years, made our photographer decision simple. When you want the best, you go to the best. From the minute we sat with Maggie discussing our likes and dislikes, dreams - wishes and would be nice to have ideas, we looked no further. Maggie greets you with a contagious smile inside of her studio, conveniently located in downtown Rutherford, NJ. She is upbeat, fun, creative and just simply put a fantastic person to deal with on a professional level. During our conversation with Maggie, I stressed the importance of not knowing I was being followed after our couple and family photos were done. The ironic part is we were so unaware of her and her staff that I had guests shoot pictures of her and her staff while they lay in the grass capturing all the right shots for us. We can not thank Maggie enough for the assistance in our album layout, fantastic decorative proof box and all round AMAZING photos that captured our once in a life time wedding.
Not to mention the referral she provided us for our wedding cake. One call and Maggie had all the right suggestions of who to see to get the perfect cake. I loved the fact of trusting Maggie's opinion that made our planning easier. And most of all her attentiveness to our concerns that didn't actually have to do with photography but yet our happiness.

Every single one of my pictures came out absolutely amazing, better than ever dreamed they would. My husband and I met with other area photographers that came hightly recommended, but after meeting with Maggie, I just knew she would be the photographer we would got with for our wedding. Maggies first questions to us were about my husband and I, how we, met our families, she wanted to know us. As for the day of the wedding very professional, friendly, unobtrusive, fun, patienet, and even wiped my face of perspiration before a photo. After it's all done, all we have our are memoires and photos, and i'm lucky i had the photographer I did to capture not only the pictures but the emotion and happiness of the day.

Maggie was my favorite vendor in my entire wedding experience! From the first time I met with her she acted like my wedding was as exciting to her as it was for me. I lived out of state and Maggie was so flexible with scheduling our engagement shoot when we were home for Christmas as well as arranging meetings around my schedule. Her pictures are FANTASTIC! I could not have asked for anything more!! What a worthy investment for pictures that I will have for a lifetime and bring me right back to the most magical day of my life!

I cannot begin to describe how AMAZING Maggie is .... both her personality and talent as a photographer. We love our wedding photos and received numeous compliments from our friends and family members. We were so thrilled that we later used her again to do photography sessions with our 1st daughter. We moved from the area and our CD of photos was lost in the move .... of course Maggie still had ALL of them 5 years later and provided us with another copy free of charge. I give her 5 stars all around and PROMISE you that you will be just as pleased too.

Maggie and her team were professional and super friendly. She took the time to get to know us and understand what we wanted for our special day. She came for a hike with us to get the perfect engagement shots, and set up a private session for me for tasteful bride-to-be photos that I gave to my husband the night before we tied the knot. Whenever I happen to see new photos of her weddings and events, I can tell that she continuously tries new techniques and evolves as an artist. Maggie was not just a vendor; we walked away from our experience calling her a friend.

I was told about Maggie through a friend and it was one of the best recommendations I have ever received. Maggie is an amazing photographer who actually puts you at ease and this is coming from someone who hates to get their picture taken. She listened to what I wanted, taking mostly candid shots, and provided me a photo album I will treasure forever. We loved her so much we tell all our friends about her and of course we hire to photograph all our other important milestones.

Maggie is definitely the best wedding photographer a girl could ask for. She was overly flexible (she flew to LA to do our engagement shoot) and all of my pictures came out amazing. Her offerings are innovative and current, and pricing is not over the top. Her bubbly personality makes the day flow smoothly and keeps you smiling!! My album is ridiculously artistic, mixing magazine and traditional points of view, black and white and color images. It's exactly what I was hoping for! Maggie is also great at understanding the couple and anticipating their wants and needs. I would absolutely recommend Maggie, her assistants and her fabulous work anytime!!!
