My style and backgroud

I believe in people being beautiful, not just looking beautiful. I let your natural beauty shine and, when needed, coax it out. I treat my clients like family and it shows in the emotion and intimacy my photography is known for. I aim to capture the full richness of each uninterupted moment, and yet I also love to try new and creative ideas, and get stunning portraits throughout the day.

I received my bachelor of arts in visual communication from Boston's own Emerson College and have been shooting weddings for over 10 years—yes, back we used film!

I married my wife in the summer of 2012, so I know what you're going through as you plan and look for the right vendors to make and capure your vision.

I hope my unique emotional portolfio speaks for itself!


About packages

All packages are fully customizable and include Maureen Cotton as your main photographer. I offer everything from engagement sessions and rehearsal dinner coverage, to (carefully and creatively designed) custom heirloom albums, slideshows, and photo thank you cards. Please get in touch and let me know how photography can complete the vision of your big day!

I also teach yoga to my couples and their families as a way to connect with each other and chill out before the rehearsal dinner or wedding! Learn more on my website. Read less

Maureen is a phenomenal photographer and human being, we feel incredibly fortunate that she was part of our day. She has an amazing talent at capturing the emotion in each moment in an artistic, yet effortless way. Her work truly tells a story, and her desire to tell your story in her photography shines through with her clients. It is no surprise that her passion in telling stories has led her to her new endeavor, InnerLife photography: http://www.innerlifephoto.com We hope that Maureen will make the trek to Connecticut and continue to help us capture our story as our family grows. I love that we can have the continuity of voice as we capture our memories in the future.
We had an unusual path from an engagement shoot to our wedding day, and Maureen was patient and professional with us every step along the way. We really did not want to see one another before the ceremony, so we had to do the family group shots during our cocktail hour. Maureen was like a well-oiled, yet super-tactful and kind machine! We got through them super-quickly without feeling rushed, and they turned out wonderfully. I cannot say enough good things about Maureen. She is just the best you'll find, and worth every penny.

We booked with Maureen for our Wedding this September. Our experience was everything we had hoped for. Our pictures came out amazing! It was such a pleasure to work with Maureen and her team. Her enthusiasm, organization and attention to time and detail made the experience enjoyable and our pictures just fabulous! Our bridal party complimented how fluid and speedy the picture taking process was, never feeling like they were just sitting around waiting. We also heard from many guests how nice it was that she went around taking pictures of family groups and couples and we know they will love the results of those photos! We will definitely work with Maureen again for future events.

We are so glad that we chose Maureen Cotton as our wedding photographer. Maureen is an experienced photographer who brings both intellect and heart to her work.

I was blown away during the interview process by her detailed reflections on the techniques of wedding photography as well as her understanding of the role of the photographer and the photographs in the overall experience of the wedding. She was a joy to work with on our wedding day. And the photographs that we received from her were simply stunning.

A few more observations about Maureen:
-She is a clear communicator who is easily to coordinate with both in advance of the wedding and on the day of.
-She is warm, friendly, organized, and enjoyable to spend time with.
-She listens to what you tell her that you want. We were eager to have photos of us (of course!), of our immediate families, and of our wedding party, but we also expressed a strong desire to have photographs of other guests, as so many friends and family members made the effort to be there with us. She handled this request beautifully. We are thrilled to show the full portfolio of photos from our wedding day to guests. The photo collection feels not only like a celebration of us, but a celebration of all of our friends and family who were there with us. And she accomplished this without having to "pose" most of our guests; at our request, we kept the period of posed photography relatively short, and then she took hours of candid shots during the wedding day, which make up most of the collection.
-She is an amazing photographer. Her photographs are gorgeous and high-quality. And the volume of images that we received from her was astonishing. At our request, the package included 8 hours of photography and a second shooter, but we were still amazed to receive such a large number of images, all of them beautiful, capturing each moment of the wedding.

I found myself looking to Maureen for guidance a few times during the wedding. She was such a reassuring person to have by my side. That said, I often forgot she was there. She blends in to really authenticate the photos and obtain candid and natural shots. She was such a pleasure to work with. Although she takes beautiful photos, I was really prompted to work with her because she is somebody whom I would want to be friends with.

We were envisioning an intimate wedding in a historical home. I stumbled upon Maureen's candid wedding photos for city hall weddings on facebook and had a cheerful consultation on the phone... Later, we heard more of Maureen through our mutual connections via SoJust Boston and decided to pay her a visit in her new studio in Beverly. We were impressed with Maureen's artistic taste and unique album design, so we hired her the second day. She is sweet, professional, experienced, kind, creative... She magically made everyone at ease and looks cheerful for supposedly boring formal photos!! We love both the candids and formals she took and will definitely consider hiring her for other family events!

Maureen was fantastic. We found her on our venue's vendor list and could tell from her website that she was exactly what we wanted in a photographer. Our wedding celebration was not traditional, and Maureen was totally up for the challenge! There were a lot of games, so we wanted to have more candid shots than posed stills. She completely captured the spirit of our day and did everything we had asked. We would definitely work with her again.

Maureen did the best job ever in photographing all of the beautiful moments at our wedding. She was so kind and considerate and even took the time to meet with us a couple times before our wedding. She truly listened to what we were looking for and spent a lot of her time and energy getting to know us as a couple. She was easy to talk to and so full of knowledge. My husband and I spent many months looking for a photographer and in the end picked Maureen because she is by far the best at capturing emotion in each photo. We love the pictures of peoples gestures and expressions in each photo. We were initially concerned in only having a photographer and no video but each picture Maureen took captured our wedding night in such a way that we were thrilled we didn't hire a videographer. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for an amazing photographer for a wedding or any other big event.

I am very glad that we worked with Maureen - she took lovely photos and, while very much a professional, maintained a friendly manner that put our entire party at ease. I particularly appreciated Maureen's responsiveness and availability both before and after our wedding - Maureen took time to listen to us and also, to provide suggestions and some much-needed guidance. I am also struck by Maureen's follow up after the wedding and her promptness in providing photos for our review. Maureen's photos perfectly captured our small intimate wedding - and I particularly appreciated the warmth that Maureen was able to capture in her photos. Choosing a wedding photographer is a big decision and I highly recommend Maureen.

We found Maureen through our vendor and she did an amazing job.

Not only was Maureen really responsive when we had questions, she also had so much respect for our own ideas. We love anything that comes naturally, and Maureen really brought the true joy and happiness through these photos. It's been six months since our wedding, and I can still remember the every moment of our wedding clearly by looking at our wedding album. The quality of her work is amazing, and her pictures could tell a thousand words.
