MJC took amazing pictures for our wedding. Our family and friends are reliving the night over and over by looking through the pictures and moments they missed while having a great time. I would recommend MJC to anyone looking for a sweet and super organized photographer.

Margaret was a wonderful addition to our wedding day. I really appreciated the planning that went into the day including meeting ahead of time and going over a specific timeline. Margaret also went to the venue before the wedding to get a sense of what our day would be like and to get ideas for photographs. Our family and friends have all complimented us on our beautiful pictures that we have shown them so far. We will look forward to looking at them for years to come!

A wedding day is fraught with enough concerns about making the day as perfect as possible, so it was absolutely blissful to work with Margaret J. Cotton as our photographer, because she captured every important moment - and especially the seemingly trivial ones - in her own professional, unobtrusive way. She is knowledgeable about her craft and takes pride in making each photograph beautiful and meaningful. She, herself, is calm and cheerful, so the time spent with her is pleasant and joyful. She makes you feel at ease, so there is no doubt the pictures will come out well. What I especially like is that these are not your cookie-cutter, run-of-the-mill wedding photos; Margaret takes the time to know the couple before the day of the event, then personalizes the photos for the individuals involved. The video that she makes from a selection of our photos and the accompanying music that she chooses as the soundtrack is beyond amazing, and affords us the opportunity to relive that special day over and over again. We have gotten countless compliments on the video and the photos of our wedding day and are thrilled to share them because we are so proud of Margaret J. Cotton's work - and that we chose her as our photographer. This was a second marriage for both of us, but the photos taken that day are timeless and joyously capture the quirkiness of our ceremony and celebration. These photos and the album are items that we are proud to display in our home because they will not look dated and similar to others' pictures. I would most definitely recommend Margaret J. Cotton as a photographer for any occasion because you will treasure the images she captures because they are so unique and personal. Also, her pricing is fair and very reasonable; you get more than your money's worth because what she does to help you recall that day/event is priceless.

Margaret and her assistant (and husband!) were amazing. My husband and I started out with an engagement session and then on to the big day! Margaret was on time, completely on point, and had everything worked out to a T. We met with her and worked out a timeline a few weeks before the wedding and she stuck to every second of it. She was even able to incorporate some other pictures I was interested in the day of. She did exactly what she told us she was going to do and without flaw. Being that your wedding day is once in a lifetime, you're scared that something may go wrong (with everything!) and I have to say, my wedding pictures are by far a million times better than I could have ever hoped for. I would highly recommend Margret's photography to any bride.

Margaret is a special person. Right from the start she made my husband and I comfortable with the process. She is extremely professional and amazed us with her talented photography. She was not just our wedding photographer but is now our friend. When I look back on our wedding she was such a huge part of it. I would recommend her to any and all of my family and friends - which I have! In fact, a few are already lining up to get her contact information after seeing the amazing photos she took of our wedding. Thank you Margaret! We are forever indebted to you for such a wonderful job.

Margaret was wonderful to work with and took beautiful pictures.

There is something somewhat intimidating about taking wedding pictures. They're supposed to last forever and it seems that everyone will want to see them, which can make the actual process of taking the pictures rather difficult. It was easy for us to grow stiff or seem uncomfortable, but Margaret was able to help us relax and treat the pictures themselves as a form of play. She encouraged us to try and all ideas that popped into our heads which led to a few rather spectacular, if unorthodox, shots. She was also able to offer her own suggestions, providing some much needed experience to the wedding.

Margaret was able to breeze through the formal portraits, masterfully handling the difficult task of wrangling two families together, but was also brilliant with her informal shots. She slid around the ceremony and reception, never obtrusively, in order to capture some wonderfully intimate and natural shots of us, our friends, and our families. She understood the kind of moments that we valued most and captured them time and time again.

Margaret is also a consummate professional. She was very easy to contact whenever necessary and a joy to work with. She has our highest recommendation.

Margaret spent a lot of time with us up front giving tips and advise to ensure a smooth wedding day. She worked well with us during our special day and was gracious with her time after the wedding to go over our options with pictures and albums. Margaret, her husband, and daughter proved to be a successful team in capturing the important moments of the day. Margaret arranged a few of these special moments in a card to us which we ultimately used as our Thank You card. It was reasonably priced and the quality of this product made us reconsider what we had originally planned to do. She is a true professional that was great to work with thru the entire process. We can not say enough about the service they provided, and highly recommend them.

There simply are no words to describe the level of detail and magical moments that Margaret captured for our special day. People always DREAM of being able to relive their wedding moments with family, friends, and the love of their life, and she made it a reality.

My wife Rachael and I could not be happier with the results she produced. She was patient, calm, and more importantly, made my wife relaxed and stress free on the most important day of her life (so far!). Her AMAZING assistants blended into the crowd, were unobtrusive, and quite frankly, blended in so well I forgot they were photographers.

What I really could not believe, are the moments she captured that were not staged and poses for photos. Margaret captured all of those little moments that we tend to not think much about, but once we see them in a photo again we are amazed and in awe.

I would highly recommend Margaret Cotton to anyone who is in need of someone to capture their special moments. My wife and I now have an extremely vivid memory of our special day thanks to her!

Margaret Cotton, her husband, and assistant, were the photographers for my daughter's wedding on August 3. Right after the wedding she posted a video that captured the day in a way that I could not believe. She captured the excitement and energy of everybody that day! Yesterday was their one month anniversary and I still can't stop looking at the pictures and watching the video. The video told the story of the day and the pictures that Margaret chose are incredible. It makes me feel like I am reliving the day. The pictures were posted shortly after the wedding. I can't even imagine how my daughter is going to pick pictures for an album. There are SO many great pictures I wouldn't even know where to begin. My daughter liked Margaret from our very first meeting. She knew she wanted her to be part of her day. Her warm, caring, and enthusiastic personality had my daughter hooked. I can't say enough about her the day of the wedding. She made everyone feel calm and at ease. She was such a professional in the way she managed a big wedding party. Everyone had fun working with her and they never felt that picture taking was a chore. I could go on and on, but I am so glad my daughter hired Margaret Cotton as her photographer!
