“Grayson and I, our relationship is an ever-moving dance. We could not be more opposite if we tried to be. And it’s good because yin/yang – a natural balance – is good. But living in a broken world….i’ve come to find as an adult that the “we balance each other out” phrase isn’t a cure-all like i used to think it was. The balance is beautiful, yes, but balance in itself is something that has to be maintained. A perfect balance will hold…until something comes along that upsets one side and then everything is just all out of whack. The balance is beautiful but maintaining that balance through the journey that is life….that’s where it gets impossible without Jesus.” – Maggie

I see the beauty in imperfect things. As a Christ-follower, faith is central to my life, work, and connections. I am fueled by joy, known for my bubbly and sunny disposition, and always with a warm hug. Imperfect beauty inspires my love for all things vintage, abstract art, and real love stories. I love moments full of grit and emotion; life off the beaten path; stunning views along the shore; and the juxtaposition of New York grunge and laid back Cali-vibe. 

As a mother of two, I am very familiar with how quickly life’s most important moments fly by too quickly. I will calmly and seamlessly guide you through frames that will endure. I strive to capture your memories with one-of-a-kind images full of meaning. I cannot wait to connect with you! 

I bring all of these elements to my time with my couples. With over a decade of experience in the industry, I know how to gently guide you through poses that are natural and beautiful. The transition into this sentence doesn’t make sense. Throughout your day, you will feel the love from those there to celebrate
 you two. 
When I’m not photographing weddings, I enjoy long walks in the neighborhood with my husband, my kiddos Tuxie and Sunny, and my labradoodle Hokie.. Also, I am a huge dog-lover! I’m pretty sure heaven is full of dogs. I can’t wait to connect with you, and yes, your pup is always welcome here!
