For Brides & GRooms


Hi there! Welcome to the Magdalena Studios blog, a journal where we share weddings, travel, resources for brides & entrepreneurs, and a glimpse of our lives. When we're not photographing some of the most romantic weddings around the world, we're either fixing up our beach bungalow, surfing and swimming in the ocean, or cooking up veggie burgers. Alongside my (soon-to-be) husband Scott and our trustworthy team of creatives, our life mission is to capture joyful love stories and effortless real-life moments.

Elegant Bonnet Island Estate Wedding | Magdalena Studios

AmandaandChalie CoastalWedding BonnetIslandEstate LongBeachIslandNJ Photographer MagdalenaStudios 00 42

Amanda and Chalie’s wedding at Bonnet Island Estate was absolutely stunning! Bonnet Island is one of our favorite wedding venues in New Jersey. Everything from the white barn chapel to the sunset lit docks on the bay make this LBI wedding venue the most magical location for photos. Starting the day with the light and bright bridal preparation suite and separate salon for hair and makeup and ending with the gorgeous reception location make everything seamless and stressfree. It’s so much more easeful for the bridal party and guests when everything is in one location! There are endless locations to shoot that are perfect for creating the romantic and stunning photos we love best. If you are looking for a magical, romantic wedding day by the sea – Bonnet Island Estate is your wedding venue!

As Seen On Mod Wedding

Words from The Bride:

We decided to go with Magdalena Studios because all of her work is to  die for.  So we set up an appointment to meet with her to discuss our vision and expectations and she blew me away. She was able to articulate and describe what I was looking for and gave me ideas I never even thought of. After our meeting we knew 100% that we would be booking her because she was so nice and friendly and seemed to know everything I wanted, even before I did. her works speaks for itself, its stunningly beautiful. 

Both of photographer and videographer blew us out of the water with their work. The photos and video still bring tears to my eyes. Also- I have to add, that I was worried it would be too much having 2 photographers and 2 videographers with space and equipment; however, everything was flawless. They captured absolutely everything I wanted and more and I couldn’t even tell they were there.
