Tired of scrolling through Instagram, pinning on Pinterest, and sorting through wedding magazines and blogs? If you're new to this whole wedding thing and don't know where to start, I understand – it can be an overwhelming, all-consuming job to make decisions about one of the most magical days of your life. Now that you're at the stage of finding a photographer, you have a whole new set of sorting and figuring out to do. In a world where we're constantly inundated with wedding articles and tips, surrounded by sources of "inspo" and suggestions, and everyone you know is a photographer, you not only have to worry about how you two will look and feel in front of the camera, but also how to know that you've found the right person for the weightiest of jobs. Because, on top of all the planning, pressure, details, and decisions, there is also the looming notion that...

And all that will remain are the photos. Well, fear no longer – you've found the photographers whose sole purpose and mission in life is to qualm your anxieties and melt any tense expressions into joyous, radiant, and everlasting confidence and comfort to be captured and recorded on the pages of your love story, treasured as a timeless heirloom for all the years to come. No need for yoga or zen-filled mantras any longer, you can rid your worry of not pinning enough images on Pinterest or knowing which boxes to tick off in your planner first. You've done all the hard work of searching. Now that you're here, I gotchu. When it comes to your wedding day photos, I'll worry about the rest.

Magdalena Studios captures and preserves authentic stories and moments in an effortless, joyful manner. We believe that every subject deserves an individualized experience and to remember, see, and feel how beautiful they are at that moment in time.

ABOUT THE TEAM

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.

So, what's next?

THE PROCESS

Let's Chat Details

I.

After you shoot us an email saying hello, we'll send you over our pricing and information. From there, we can set up a time to FaceTime or get together for coffee. We'll get to know each other, make sure we're the right fit for your wedding day, and go over all the details. We only take on a limited number of weddings each year, and dates are typically reserved 8-16 months before the wedding date (with less availability for shorter notice). 

Make It Official

II.

When you're ready to secure your date with us, we'll send you an online link where you can make a deposit and sign your contract. We keep the booking process super simple and straightforward via our online client management system, so your official records and documents are always in one safe place. After you're booked, it's time to celebrate one huge check off of your wedding planning list!

The Planning Process

iiI.

All of our clients 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. As your date gets closer, we'll get together for coffee or over FaceTime again to finalize important details like your timeline and family photos.

You're Married

IV.

After the wedding, all images are carefully selected and fully edited to be consistent with the signature Magdalena Studios style. The USB and online gallery are delivered 6-8 weeks after the wedding date, and we can assist with printing and framing, designing gallery walls, and creating custom fine art heirloom wedding albums. We also love staying involved in your life for all the years to come!

Let's make magic.

Our couples seek a boutique wedding experience and value heirloom-quality photography – romantic imagery with rich and dreamy colors that captures real-life moments, reflecting their love and story as a couple. Our clients are kind and caring, and tend to have an astute taste for style, recognizing a distinction in our images when they come across our work. For this, we are grateful.

It's magic when the right people connect and work together. Our clients come from all over the world, representing many vocations and diverse backgrounds, but we've found there are some characteristics they all have in common: They are...

"Hiring Magi was hands down the best decision we made for our wedding day.”

"Magi's thoughtfulness throughout the day will always stick with me.”

"Magi is a true artist and a master of her work.”

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