Devon and Jake’s Bonnet Island Estate wedding in LBI, NJ was a colorful, summer dream. These two were such a joy to work with and I’ve truly never seen a couple have as good of a time as these two did! They really savored and took in every moment, which was not only beautiful to watch, but made their photos even more full of the energy and authenticity of their love. Everything about their gorgeous, summer Bonnet Island wedding was detailed with color and vibrance. From the tandem bike representing their love for the beach to the gorgeous floral-filled chapel, every bit of Bonnet Island was dripping in bubbly, romantic, joyful love. We love ourselves a Bonnet Island wedding, and this was one for the books! Thank you for having us Devon and Jake.

“One of the first things my husband and I talked about after out wedding day was our choice to go with Magdalena Studios for photography. It was 100% the easiest decision we made through the planning process. Magi and Scott made our day flow so perfectly and we did not have to worry about a single thing. Throughout the whole day, we never worried about whether we were getting the necessary shots or the right angles because of their professionalism and flawless attention to detail. Having the confidence that our photos would be perfect helped make our wedding day that much better. Even before we got engaged, I knew that one day I wanted Magi to be our photographer- and she did not disappoint! The way she captures people is unlike anything I have seen before, and we knew she was the perfect person to capture our love in photos. From our engagement shoot to our wedding day, Magi helped us feel comfortable in front of the camera and allowed us to just have fun and be ourselves. Magi and Scott made us feel so special on our wedding day, and that is something we will never forget. They are truly amazing, kind, caring & genuine people who clearly care deeply about what they do. I cry happy tears every time I look at our photos because I feel like I am right there all over again! If we had to do it all over again, Magdalena Studios would always be our first choice!” – Devon & Jake
