“Before I came to Magi I had zero experience in photography. However, after a few one on one sessions my skills improved significantly! She was so patient and able to answer any questions I had. I left all my sessions feeling so inspired. Magi is a one of a kind person and photographer. I hope to keep working with her in the future!” -Kelsea
Mentorships are intensive and can cover all aspects of running a profitable heart-driven photography business, marketing yourself effectively to your ideal clientele (how I have grown my business to what it is today), start to finish editing and workflow, how to create unique storytelling sessions, pricing yourself appropriately to profit more and spend less time working, how to figure out how to balance it all and still be happy, refreshed, inspired and also available to your family/friends in the midst of it. I like to do a website/portfolio critique as well as dive deep into WHY you shoot and help you form a practical plan for carving out your unique niche in the industry. I am a feeler so be prepared to share with me. I will need to truly get to know you and your story to be able to help you best. I’ve worked with a wide range of clients from learning how to use your camera to more advanced business organization + branding strategy sessions, so these sessions can be customized to fit you and your needs!
For non-professionals: If you aren’t currently a business owner or looking to be, the mentorship can be a bit more free flowing based around what you want to learn! We can cover how to shoot in manual mode with your current gear, looking for light even in the darkness, how to embrace reality, wonder and creativity simultaneously in your work and documenting your daily life and family in the most original and special way possible.

"Magi is such a sweet talent and great teacher! Being a photographer in my early years of business, I have been in need of some guidance on a handful of business & photography related questions. I signed up for a mentorship with Magi and it was SO helpful. She gave me great advice on some issues that have been holding me back from growing my business! I am so appreciative and I am already seeing amazing results on the tips she gave me. Thank you Magi!" - Nicole

Magdalena Studios experienced incredible growth and had to turn down numerous weddings on a regular basis because we were already booked or maxed out on weddings. Scott and I had many discussion and realized we had some serious talent right at our fingertips with our team of second shooters and studio managers. With some training and team building, we knew we could comfortably and confidently make the jump to a team of associate photographers. Making the shift to offer Associate Team Weddings allows our studio to serve more couples while delivering the same quality and style of photography. We love being able to tell even more love stories with the help of our Associates!
Magdalena Studios is focused on providing each and every client with the full Magdalena Studios boutique experience. We are thrilled to offer another option for dates we are already booked for! We now offer our specialized Team of Associate Photographers for wedding days when Magdalena is already booked. All of our Associate Photographers are chosen based on their professionalism, personalities, and work which embodies our signature joyful, effortless, vibrant style. Our Associate Photographers capture each moment with the same artistic vision and deliver an artistic product worthy of the Magdalena Studios brand. Additionally, 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 finished products, high-end service, and boutique client experience, the Magdalena Studios Associate Team is a perfect extension of our style and services.
