Did you read my reviews? Perhaps you noticed "creative" and "fun" are the two most common words couples' use to describe their wedding photos (followed by "gorgeous" and "romantic")! If fun and creativity are part of your big day, please read on!

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

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.

Maureen is a gifted photographer and a kind and supportive presence--you want her at your wedding. Our ceremony was tiny, just with our immediate families, and Maureen expertly navigated the scene. She captured beautiful moments and made everyone look amazing. She was always responsive, and answered all of our wedding-illiterate questions with clarity and support. We are so grateful for all of the attention and care she gave us, and for the memories that her photographs sustain.

Choosing Maureen as our photographer was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Maureen managed to mix consummate professionalism with a level friendliness and warmth that was of utmost help on the big day and the lead-up. She took the time to get to know us as a couple and accommodated our endless requests while also stepping in to recommend specific shots or explain why a certain idea might not work. Our wedding involved travel to multiple locations in downtown Boston, and Maureen orchestrated logistics with enormous success -- I had peace of mind from the moment she arrived that the wedding party was in good hands with her team, and we were. When the photos were ready to view (ahead of schedule!), we were blown away. The number of stunning images was endless -- not only from an artistic standpoint, which mattered a lot to us, but from a personal one, which mattered even more. She managed to capture genuine emotion from us and from nearly all of our guests while never being intrusive in the least. What's more, the cost was reasonable for high-quality photographers in the Boston area. We can't recommend Maureen highly enough -- we'll cherish these photos for years to come.

Having great photographs that captured the true spirit and energy of our wedding day was something that was really important to us and Maureen was able to do just that! When we were able to review all our photos for the first time, I felt like we were really able to re-live the day through those pictures and she captured so many smaller, but important and meaningful moments.

We would recommend Maureen without reservation!

Maureen was simply fantastic. She was incredibly easy to work with, was incredibly professional and on the ball in all aspects of her work, and the photos came out great. We could not have been happier with her work!

Maureen is amazing! She was completely invested in helping us capture the memories that would truly represent our love and personality. The final photographs are outstanding. Our guests even commented on how unobtrusive she was, yet she managed to capture intimate moments. We could not have asked for a better photographer!
