Weddings

this one day will be gone in the blink of an eye.

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.

OUR TEAM

MEET THE TEAM

Hiring Magi and Scott was the best decision we made for our wedding day! We had the pleasure of working with Magi from the beginning when she photographed our engagement shoot. We knew we wanted to work with Magi from the start because of her work, her attention to detail, and the way she captures everything so naturally and so beautifully. The photos from our engagement session exceeded our expectations, so we knew that going with Magi would only make our big day even better! Magi is a true professional and very communicative throughout the entire wedding process, which was a huge help (seriously!), and she was also extremely accommodating to all of our needs. During our wedding day, Magi and Scott made us feel so comfortable and relaxed behind the camera and they truly listened to what was most important to us. When we received our wedding photos back we were left speechless at how stunning each and every picture came out! Every photo was breathtaking and told the story of our wedding, from start to finish, flawlessly! We are still in awe of their magical work, it truly is an art and they are oh so wonderful at it!! We are so LUCKY and GRATEFUL that we will have these perfect, treasured photos for the rest of our lives. Thank you, thank you a million times, we could not be happier!

We are still in awe of their magical work.

RACHEL & MARC

Magi’s unique and stylish aesthetic is what drew us to her. Every photograph she takes is breathtakingly beautiful.

Magi is unbelievably talented and was amazing to work with. Not only was she extremely informative & responsive to questions, but she was also super sweet and fun to talk to. Throughout our engagement session, Magi made my fiancée and I feel so comfortable and kept us laughing the entire time (all while being efficient and meticulous). We really loved her energy, enthusiasm and spontaneity. We had so much fun and overall, just a wonderful experience. We can’t wait to work with Magdalena Studios again!

She made us feel so comfortable.

MELISSA & KEVIN

Where to begin? Magi & her team are nothing short of incredible. My now husband Timmy got his degree in photography so he has an eye for great work and a very specific vision for things. He stumbled across Magi’s personal Instagram long before we got engaged and began following because of her incredible photos. After initial conversations with Magi we met at a coffee shop in Ocean City and immediately knew we found our photographer. The way she handles conversations, meet-ups, emails and everything in between is flawless. She understood our vision from the beginning and was so thorough throughout the process... she really has perfected her craft. Magi and her team truly have an eye for photography and capturing the moments you dream of and work so hard to plan. We were teary eyed as we flipped through the gallery. We were both blown away by the quality, the colors and the vibe. She truly is a remarkable artist, the kindest and sweetest soul and even an inspiration.When you invest in Magi for your wedding day, it will truly be the best investment you can make for your day and beyond. We are so grateful for her attentiveness, patience, kindness and open heart that she put into our engagement and wedding experience. We would hire her 10 times over again if we had the choice. Thank you for bringing our vision to life and for capturing the best photos we could have asked for.

It will truly be the best investment you make.

SABRINA & TIM

What can I say? My fiance, Mark and I have been waiting for last night's engagement shoot from the very first time we met Magi, at my younger brother's wedding two years ago. It was here that we got to be apart of her amazing, unique, and extremely talented work - as she was the photographer for the event. Weddings can be a time of so many decisions - which dress to pick, which flowers, which theme, which look, and what kind of entertainment. Magi was the only sure thing we've known from the start. We decided on Magi long before our engagement, our venue, and any of our wedding details. She is professional, sincere, down-to-earth, and extremely knowledgeable in not only photography, but all details of a special day. The nerves of being photographed instantly vanished moments into our photo shoot- because of Magi's personality. She felt like an old-time friend within minutes of being together. She made the process smooth, enjoyable, and memorable. Magi allowed us to remember -amidst all the stress wedding planning can bring- about the real moments and reasons for the celebrating. We shared laughs and tears together during the shoot. It's easy to be moved by someone as sincere and sweet as she is. Most importantly, there is a personal touch with Magi that I think is rarity to find in any person. We left the afternoon with her all smiles, and felt like we gained a friend in the process. Simply put, she was the best wedding decision we could have ever made. Last night's engagement shoot made us that much more excited for our wedding. 

Magi was the only sure thing we've known from the start.

CAMILLE & MARK

I don't even know where to start... Magi and her team were beyond amazing! As I began wedding planning, photography was my #1 priority. I researched and browsed many photographers from PA to NJ and once I came across Magdalena Studios' page, I knew right away I had to have them. I just fell in love with the natural light photography. It is so whimsical and romantic! Magi was so accommodating and thorough regarding every detail of the wedding process, which was extremely helpful for a bride to be. She also helped provide suggestions for other aspects of wedding planning. Magi is quick with her responses and always made me and my husband feel at ease with any concern or last minute worry! She made both of us feel so comfortable every step of the way. We can't begin to describe the love we have for our engagement photos and our wedding photos! They are everything we could have imagined and more. Every time we look at them, we can't help but smile because we are taken straight back to the most magical day of our lives! You wont regret booking Magdalena Studios and the team for your wedding! Magi, we cant thank you enough for being so kind, professional, patient, thoughtful, and providing us with such beautiful photos we will have forever! 

Magi and her team were beyond amazing.
