Hi, I'm Maggie!
...the weird girl behind the camera, who sometimes (most times) is crying because I love my couples so deeply. It’s true. I’m known to cry at weddings. Thankfully I have the camera to help hide my tears.
I started my photography journey back in college where I began shooting grad sessions. I was hooked, of course, so I started picking up any session I could: maternity, families, grads, couples. You named it, I shot it. It wasn't until my own wedding that I decided I wanted to transition into wedding photography.
Photographing weddings is more to me than just that day, it's a lifetime. A lifetime of images that you get to print and frame to be hung across the walls of your home. A lifetime of memories that you get to look back on and never forget. But also, it's a lifetime of friendship between myself and my couples. One where I'm able to not only document the day you marry the love of your life, but your future milestones as well...the ones where you move into your first home, where you welcome your first child into the world. The reason I do what I do is because I value the relationships created through weddings. I don’t shoot weddings just because they’re a good time (and they are)…I shoot them because I want to be able to call you more than just one of my brides, I want to be able to call you a friend.
Yes, this is one of the biggest decisions of your life so OF COURSE you should be absolutely sure you find the right person to photograph your wedding. You need someone that you can trust to capture every single moment throughout the day, but you also need someone who will have your back whenever you need it. That’s where I come in! I am never too far away from you, making sure to capture all of your wedding day’s little moments and big celebrations: your dad with a cheesy smile on his face when he sees you for the first time, your mom fighting tears as she buttons up your dress, your grandma as she embraces you when she sees that you’re wearing her necklace, your groom when his face lights up as you walk down the aisle. These moments matter, and I’ll be right there to capture them. However, let’s be real…your wedding day is not all pictures. There is so much more that goes on throughout the day, and I’ll be there for that, too: making sure you get your chicken nuggets from the kitchen so you don’t miss lunch, searching for grandma whenever she wanders away from our family formals after the ceremony, reassuring you that everything is perfect when you start to feel overwhelmed.
I may not be the right person for everyone, but I hope I’m that right person for you.
