Margaret was extremely professional from our first meeting for our engagement photos. She did an amazing job walking us through the process ahead of time and made us feel comfortable the entire session. Margaret recommended the perfect location (Sandy Hook) and has a great eye for the perfect shots. We are so pleased with how our pictures turned out and will cherish them forever. My fiancé and I can't wait to work again with Margaret on our wedding day. We can't thank Margaret enough and would highly recommend her for all your special occasions. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!

My fiance and I loved Margaret from the day that we met her. Her warm personality makes you feel so comfortable and she equips you with all of the knowledge you need to capture beautiful shots. She is easy to work with, responds so quickly to any inquiry, and processes your photos in a timely manner. We love our engagement photos and cannot wait to work with her on our wedding day. Meeting Margaret has been nothing but a blessing!

I could not have asked for a better photographer to capture our wedding day. Our wedding was a bit unconventional, and Margaret was there all the way to help us navigate the day and make sure that the best moments were captured. As the wedding day approached, we didn't even think of her as just a photographer but more of a friend who was taking our photos. She gave excellent insight into proper posture/positioning and what she has seen to work/not work in taking photos. Margaret also is very kind and yet knows how to appropriately tell you her opinion on situations where she may not agree. She is also very organized, and on our wedding day was able to get all the necessary photos we discussed and then some extra photos that I did not even think about.
Best of all, I think that she has an eye for capturing people in their natural environment (where people don't looked posed) and where they look their best. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who is looking for any kind of photographer and not just for weddings.

Margaret was the photographer for our wedding in Asbury Park in October 2015, and she was absolutely wonderful. Margaret was a pleasure to work with from the very beginning - she is very responsive to any and all questions and you can tell that she truly enjoys what she does. Due to the weather the week prior to our wedding, Asbury Park's Zombie walk was reschedule for our wedding weekend. Initially, Margaret and I had discussed doing pictures on the Asbury boardwalk which were now locations right in the middle of the Zombie walk. Margaret called me the week of and had not only gone to the boardwalk to look over the set up for the walk, but came up with a new plan and route for pictures to help us avoid the chaos. She even mapped out a route for our trolley driver to take to avoid the crowds. I loved her ideas and suggestions. She made what could have been a very stressful event into a perfect and easy day. And her pictures were absolutely stunning - she captured such amazing moments. Margaret puts together a wonderful slideshow of pictures the day or two after the wedding that is beautiful. I could not have been happier with how everything turned out and cannot thank her enough for being a part of our day!

Margaret is simply wonderful - a talented photographer, detail-oriented coordinator, and sweet friend in one. At our first meeting, she gave me detailed and very helpful advice on timelines, logistics, and how to look good without posing. On the day of the wedding, Margaret and her crew made everything run smoothly - she made sure we stayed on schedule, squeezed my hand when I needed it, managed a ton of family members, and took us out for breaks at just the right times. The photos are fantastic. Margaret posted them quickly and it is obvious that she carefully and thoughtfully edited her favorites, which are now my favorites. I really look forward to seeing Margaret one more time when I pick up my albums!

Not only did Margaret take beautiful wedding photos, but she helped us with pulling off such a beautiful day! We are still receiving complements from our guests about how great our photographer was with taking lovely pictures without being intrusive. I can't thank Margaret enough for capturing our wedding day with beautiful pictures, and for helping to keep with our pre-planned timeline with ease and creating a stress free environment before the ceremony and afterwards while taking family photos etc.

Working with Margaret was an absolute pleasure. She spent considerable time before the wedding learning about the bride and groom - who they are and what their preferences and priorities are for their wedding pictures. And that is exactly what she delivered! The resulting album is beautiful - creative in design and content - we could not be happier. It absolutely captures the essence of who we are and this special day.
Know that you will spend your wedding day with this person by your side - choose Margaret. She is thoughtful, considerate, positive, and oh so creative. I recommend her unconditionally.
