Wedding photography is an investment, a big one. But it's one of the best investments you'll ever make. You'll never regret the money you spent on good photographs, yet you may regret not investing in professional, quality photography. It’s arguably the most important investment of your day.
You invest in your photographer to create images that tell your love story; images that will be passed down through the generations and treasured forever. As time goes on and memories fade your investment in photography will grow in value. Because of this, choosing a photographer will be one of the most important decisions you make during the planning process.
As a photographer it is my job to tell your story by capturing the romance, details and emotions of the day. Although it is important to capture all the traditional photos, my real niche is journalistically documenting the in-between fractions of time that tell your real story: the tears on your mother's face during the "I Do's", the groom's anxious tapping before his bride walks down the aisle,
the deep belly laughs when the maid of honor gives her speech, the secret little hand squeezes between you two because it's finally your wedding day. I strive to unobtrusively capture these intimate moments.
The foundation of my business is people + relationships. Building a lasting relationship with the couples I work with is so important to me. I am with my couples every step of the way; guiding you through all steps of the planning process, when you need a hand going down the stairs on your wedding day, and I always hug you both goodnight. I'm here to help make the process smooth and make your vision of your wedding day come to life. I’m here to give you both the best experience possible before, during, and after your day.
MEET the ASSOCIATE TEAM
We now offer our specialized team of associate photographers for weddings days when Magdalena herself is already booked, or for those who are looking for a more affordable option. Magdalena works closely with each associate photographer to shoot in a similar style as our brand and is selective in picking individuals with personalities & passion syncing how we represent ourselves. Magdalena Studios manages all aspects of the details leading up to the wedding day, and the photos are edited and processed in the signature Magdalena Studios style. By offering the same products, service, and boutique experience, the associate team is a perfect solution to extend our style & service when we are unavailable.
The Magdalena Studios Associate Team begins at $3,600.
Dates are typically reserved 8-16 months before the wedding date (with less availability for shorter notice). Through a simple online process, clients can officially reserve your wedding date with us via a signed contract and a 25% retainer.
Clients will receive one-on-one communication leading up to the wedding day, assistance planning the wedding day photography timeline, and lots of helpful information and guidance to ensure the wedding day runs efficiently and stress-free.
After the wedding, all wedding images are carefully selected (to about 75-100 per hour of coverage) and fully edited to be consistent with our branded style and throughout the wedding day. The USB and online gallery is delivered 6-8 after the wedding date. We assist with printing and framing, designing gallery walls, and creating custom fine art heirloom wedding albums, and love to stay connected to photograph other important events in your life from anniversary sessions, to maternity and newborns.
