LET'S MAKE SOME MAGIC.

dear future bride or groom,

Storytelling & Artistic Wedding Photography

There are two things that matter most in our work. The first: create pictures that make your heart swell. The second—help you have a magical day.

During the planning process it’s easy to lose that sense of magic. You have a million and one things you’re juggling. What if you had one less thing? What if you had a vendor who felt more like a friend than a person to manage?

That’s what we want to be. We’ve done this a time or two. We’ve even been in your shoes. You can count on us for more than just beautiful, storytelling photos. In the months, weeks, and days leading up to your wedding, we’ll do everything we can on our end to make things easier and the day everything you imagine it to be.

because we’re all about that magic.

WHO WE ARE

we’re maggie and kelly…

…two best friends turned shooting mates. Self-described “feelers,” we are in love with all things that make our hearts pitter-patter— a great book, twinkly lights, and Joe Biden. Kelly’s the logistics queen with a unique eye and killer taste. She keeps Maggie’s visions of grandeur in check, but also knows when she’s in the flow. Together we’re a balance that works—making a day on the job something we look forward to always.

OUR GAZE

storytelling. artistic.

Whether it’s a tight frame showing a gentle touch or an intimate distance capturing an emotion, our images take you back in time. We love the pretty and the styled, the amusing and the quirky, the tender and the poignant. We value taste, and work for our angles without being intrusive. We crave good light and study it with awe. We search for compositions that show relationships and settings that evoke a feeling. In short, we’re all about the art and the story.

“We hired Kelly and Maggie to photograph our eclectic, holiday-themed wedding. Our venue was non-traditional: overcrowded, low-lit, and literally, over fifty percent active commercial kitchen. They drew the beauty out of every single detail, integrated seamlessly with our energy, and wrangled our family and friends with patience and humor. Like everyone always says, our wedding was a wonderful, forgettable blur, but they managed to capture each moment as if it were through our own eyes. We did not plan on having a first look, but they scouted out a perfect location, right near the venue, to allow us a private moment before the ceremony. We could not be happier with these special photos that would never have happened without their guidance and creative vision! These two brilliant artists are a dream to work with and we could not recommend them more highly!”

…She is the kindest, sweetest, well-thought out and most creative person we worked with throughout our entire wedding process.  I knew planning a wedding was going to be stressful, but I never once worried about our wedding photographer.  She was responsive and thorough the entire time. She has such a calming energy and makes capturing pictures so effortless and fun.  She is such a gifted photographer and we will be forever grateful for that. She was fantastic gathering pictures on our wedding day with tight time frames, especially with the large family shots and the little children.  Everyone was complimentary on how she handled everything with such poise & confidence!   I would also like to add we got married on such a cold and rainy day in October and you would never know with how the pictures turned out!

–Wendy Todd

“…She was so right there for everything but not in the way of anything; she was somehow everywhere at once, capturing moments I didn’t even know were taking place! Her photographs were absolutely stunning, all of my friends just raved about how amazing they looked! She captured so many “moments” that were special, ones that I didn’t dream would be captured….but Maggie did it! Her heart really shines through in her photography, you can tell that she really connects with the couple and her spirit of compassion shows in the photographs she takes. Her photos are not “canned” or pre-determined, they are just the spontaneous artistic appreciation of what is taking place before her. Maggie was so cordial and extremely easy to work with, and such a sweet person! Any bride would love to work with Maggie as her photographer, I am sure! I am looking forward to hanging Maggie’s work on my walls for the rest of my life.

WHY WE'RE DIFFERENT

beyond pictures.

We like to think we help our brides and grooms sleep a little better leading up to The Day. Just like we would (and have!) for our own friends, we think of ourselves as a resource for more than just photography. You can come to us for everything from organizing a timeline, to making the day flow smoothly, to scouting out the best locations for display-worthy pictures.

we prefer fewer.

We intentionally take only take a handful of weddings each year. Keeping things small gives us more room for creativity and leaves us more accessible to you.

 Chicago wedding photography packages begin at $4600. Special pricing is available for intimate ceremonies, bundle boudoir photography and wedding coverage,  and destination wedding photography. Please inquire for more information. 

WHAT'S NEXT?

let’s meet!

 

We’d love hear about the vision for your day over a cup or coffee or glass of wine.
