“Hiring Magdalena Studios was one of the best decisions we made. Kelee was our lead photographer and from the moment we met her for our engagement photos she just felt so familiar and we were so comfortable with her. My fiance (now husband) enjoyed the entire engagement shoot, and was in awe when we got the photos back.
We had so many comments from friends and guests who had seen the photos on our wedding website about how amazing they were. We added on rehearsal coverage and had Kelee the night before the wedding which was amazing to get some photos that we maybe wouldn’t get the next day, or just some different portraits of my husband and I. Everyone at the Welcome Dinner came up to me to tell me how absolutely great Kelee was.
When wedding day came we had Mike as our second shooter with the guys and my husband kept saying how great he was and how all the guys were relaxed and comfortable during their get ready and groomsmen photos. Kelee was with me wedding morning after doing our details shots and was so calm and on it for every shot she wanted to get- I was completely at ease when she arrived. We got our previews back a few days later and I had no words. Kelee was amazing to work with, our schedule went so smoothly and the photos are absolutely breathtaking. Magdalena Studios was a wedding decision I would make every time if I had to do it all over again.
“From day one, Magi and her team were absolutely magnificent. They were engaging during our email conversations, were personable and understanding during our early phone calls, and on top of all of that,
After being assigned our day-of photographers (Ashley and Angelica), we quickly booked some time to chat details and timelines out. Not only was Ashley on the ball about every minor detail, she gave helpful suggestions about shots to take and ideas for where to take photos. And that was all before our big day! When our wedding come around, Ashley and Angelica were incredible. They kept our asks and requests in mind and took the time throughout the day to be mindful to them. And not to mention, the pictures they took blew us away. We couldn't believe some of the shots they took and we couldn't have been more thankful and thrilled that we went with Magdalena Studios. I can't recommend Magdalena Studios enough.
"I can't even begin to explain how happy we were with Magi and her team. Kelee was our head photographer. When we met Kelee for our engagement photos we felt like we were hanging out with a friend. My husband was even having a good time (I know right? What man likes getting his photos taken?) About 2 months before my wedding my mother got diagnosed with cancer and wasn't going to be here for the wedding and ended up passing a month before the wedding . Magi and her team were so supportive of the pain of was going through and tried to help in any way. They sent me the cutest charm to add to my bouquet so my mom would be with me when I walked down the aisle.
You're getting a vendor and company who actually cares deeply about their couples. Kelee was a gem the day of the wedding. She knew the day was going to be very emotional and was so supportive. And got the best shots. Brian and I were over the moon with our pictures. We just received our hard wedding album and couldn't be happier. I would want to get married all over again just to work with Magi and her team.
