I cried at how absolutely beautiful every single picture was. It wasn't the standard standing still side by side photo. Every single picture was raw and emotional.

If I could add more stars to this I would. I don't even know where to begin. Magi was so helpful during the entire planning process. She even took the time to help me set up a timeline for the wedding based around the sunset. Who does that? Magi does. She goes above and beyond to make sure your dreams come true. Day of the wedding, besides being on time and professional, she was so fun! It was not a painstaking "okay now you guys get in , okay now this picture". She had the magic touch where everything just happened with ease. We got a handful of edited photos the next day! And a blog post with more photos a few days later. Within 2 weeks we had access to every single photo! I cried at how absolutely beautiful every single picture was. It wasn't the standard standing still side by side photo. Every single picture was raw and emotional. Just looking at the photos I'm transformed back into the bride, and I feel everything all over again. Just looking at her photos you will want to book her, but after meeting her and working with her, you will LOVE her. I highly recommend booking Magi to capture these special moments for you!

Her thoughtfulness throughout the day will always stick with me. She is a true artist and a master of her work!

If you are looking for the wedding photographer of your dreams, Magi and her team are it! I knew when we had our first phone call that she would be the photographer we picked. Her personality is so warm, welcoming and professional. Having a destination wedding in NJ and being in Denver we were a little nervous about not being able to meet with her in person. She is prompt and responsive to emails which made us feel at ease right away. She made sure we had all of the information prior to our day so that everything would go smoothly. Her creativity was clear from the second she got to our room! Both her and Scott work so well together and our wedding went off with out a hitch! Her and Scott both worked their tails off during the wedding to make sure Josh and I didn't have to worry about, I was worried about having to direct or tell people where to go or be. The wedding was a breeze - she really makes you feel so at home and it truly makes a difference in your photos They were dedicated to making sure we got every photo we needed, especially since certain family photos were so important to us. She was able to get the perfect mix of gorgeous romantic pictures, party pictures, and fun artistic pictures. We were also able to get a sneak peak the day of the wedding of some of the photos, which I loved!! Our whole family and wedding party were so impressed with both of them. Her thoughtfulness throughout the day will always stick with me. She is a true artist and a master of her work! You will not regret having Magdalena Studios shoot your big day!

Magi knows how to make people feel comfortable in front of a camera. Our engagement shoot felt like we were spending time with an old friend...

I can't think of enough superlatives that describe how phenomenal Magi is. She is a gifted artist and photographer. She is kind and easy-going, but still provides direction and guidance. And she is just a really interesting and cool person. She was obviously born to be a photographer! Magi knows how to make people feel comfortable in front of a camera. Even our engagement shoot, which we were both pretty nervous about, was incredibly fun and felt like we were spending time with an old friend (and we ended up with gorgeous pictures on top of it).
On our wedding day, Magi and Scott were truly a seamless machine. They were a calm and constant presence in the face of chaos and multiple mishaps. Not only did they keep everything running smoothly and produce UNBELIEVABLY beautiful pictures of our wedding, they somehow took all of these incredible shots while being completely unobtrusive. I have been to so many weddings where photographers will get great pictures but only at the expense of being in the middle of all the action and being distracting to the guests. Not these two!! They somehow capture the look and feel of your day and all the special little moments that make it memorable while basically being invisible. It's amazing. And the pictures themselves are truly special. Thank you, Magi and Scott, for capturing our wedding so perfectly and being so wonderful to work with throughout our wedding year!!!

I had tons of feedback after the wedding about how awesome Magi was. The comments weren't just about how beautiful and perfect the pictures came out (which they were) but how wonderful Magi was.

Magi was beyond anything we could have expected for our wedding photographer. She was very personable, friendly, and REAL- she met us for coffee to make sure she knew what kind of pictures we wanted, we texted back and forth about pictures, everything was just easy and comfortable. I had tons of feedback after the wedding about how awesome Magi was. The comments weren't just about how beautiful and perfect the pictures came out (which they were) but how wonderful Magi was. She talked to my guests and family, got tons of great pictures, and was so fun to be around! My mom remarked that she didn't even know Magi was at the ceremony taking pictures because she was so "well hidden" and not in Erik and I's faces as we were saying our vows. Magi was open to all the pictures I wanted to take and not once did she boss anyone around or tell us what to do. She made it fun and the pictures were absolutely incredible. Thanks so much Magi!!!

On one of the craziest, overwhelming, emotionally charged, magical event in my lifetime, Magi proved to be a truly calming presence. She made our wedding easier, more relaxed by capturing the right photos at the right moments. I honestly barely remember seeing her. She allowed us to focus on each other and stay present in the moment. After our engagement photos, I had complete trust in Magi's ability. And her turn around time on getting photos back was incredible!!

Throughout our entire year of our engagement leading up to our wedding, Magi was SO helpful, organized and kept in touch with me the entire time.

Magi is an absolutely wonderful photographer! I cannot say enough great things about her!! As soon as I got engaged, I knew I had to book her!! When I first contacted Magi about doing my wedding photos, she was so quick to respond and incredibly helpful will all of the questions I had! I then booked her to do our engagement photos and she was accommodating and flexible when choosing a date and location that really worked for us. The engagement photos came out SOOO beautiful, and I knew then that I definitely made the right choice in having her shoot our big day!! Throughout our entire year of our engagement leading up to our wedding, Magi was SO helpful, organized and kept in touch with me the entire time. It was so nice to have a photographer that was so involved and trustworthy! On our wedding day, Magi was right on schedule and made us feel so relaxed the entire day! We were able to really be fully present in the moment and not have to worry about anything else but each other! Magi captured all the special moments between my husband and I and our family and friends. Our photos came back absolutely beautiful, better than I could ever have imagined! We will cherish these photos for years to come. My only complaint is that she gave us way too many amazing photos to choose from I don’t know which ones to hang in my house!!!! Not only is Magi unbelievably talented, but she truly is a beautiful person inside and out. I HIGHLY recommend her and her associate team! They do an amazing job and will not disappoint. We plan on using Magi for our photos for years to come!!! Thank you Magi for such a great experience!!!

Magi is able to capture the true emotions felt at that exact moment in her pictures. Her and her adorable fiancé Scott photographed our wedding and they work seamlessly together!

It’s hard to find the exact words to describe just how amazing Magi is. Even before we got engaged my fiancé and I knew we wanted Magi to be our wedding photographer--She actually shot our surprise engagement AND wedding! Once we got engaged we met with Magi and she was available for our destination wedding—which was a HUGE plus! In planning a destination wedding we knew we would need to leave a lot up to the days before the wedding and meeting a photographer for the first time was not one of them! We knew we wanted someone that really knew my fiancé and I to be able to truly capture our personalities! She was also easily one of the best vendors to work with when wedding planning. Her site is super user friendly and provides you with tips and tricks for wedding planning and the wedding day. You also get automated reminders for payments which takes one more thing off the bride’s long to-do list! Magi’s photography skills are phenomenal! She is able to capture the true emotions felt at that exact moment in her pictures. Her and her adorable fiancé Scott photographed our wedding and they work seamlessly together! Scott took pictures of the guys getting ready and Magi was with us girls. I felt so comfortable with Magi and Scott—something you want when you have someone photographing one of the most important days of your life! Magi asked us what specific moments we wanted captured (i.e. first look with my brother, the wish lantern release for my dad etc) and made sure these were all done perfectly for us to always remember. Besides her amazing skills (which are reason enough to hire her!) is the fact that Magi is one of the sweetest humans I have ever met. Just months before our wedding my father passed away unexpectedly and our wedding venue needed to be changed to a new country due to a hurricane. Magi was so compassionate and thoughtful during this trying time, she exceeded any and all expectations as a photographer and friend!

Magi exceeded our expectations on every single level possible.

I feel very lucky to have had Magi be at my wedding and capture one of the most special moments of mine and my husband's life. She has such an incredible eye and attention to detail. She is extremely sweet, professional, personable, and what I love the most about her is she makes you feel extremely comfortable & beautiful.  Magi is so extremely talented and it truly shows in her work. She captured so many beautiful moments of my family & friends that we will all be able to reflect back on forever. Photos of your wedding are so important - you will forever look back on them. That is why I hired Magi because I knew I could rely and trust her to get the images that were important to me and make them look amazing! Magi takes moments and enhances them with her creative eye & really brings your wedding photos to life.

In only a few words, it is not physically possible to express how lucky I feel to have found Magi to document my wedding day.

Throughout the entire engagement, my now husband and I felt so comfortable with Magi - as if we were family! You could tell that Magi wanted to get to know us and our relationship in order to produce the stunning photos that she did on our big day. She really invested in us! Scott was incredible as well - if you have the option to have a second shooter, I would highly recommend it. The day of was so smooth and I was elated at how quickly Magi was able to turn around our photos. They were incredible. I look forward to that day where I can use Magdalena Kernan Studio again for family photos.
