A brief introduction and some thoughts

Hello! I'm Maggie. Photography is how I connect to the world and the people in it. 

Long before I photographed weddings, I sat in the pews of a Catholic church in Milwaukee at a wedding, and heard the priest sing, “Love is our origin; love is our constant calling” as a part of the wedding mass.

I was deeply moved by these words. I listen for this refrain at every Catholic wedding I photograph, but I’ve never heard it again. It was one of those moments where the world stopped for a minute, and everything was quiet and open, with only this voice and these words, resonating every molecule in the room with its magnificent and profound energy. I have thought about that phrase ever since, and although I have never heard it again, I have seen it manifested in every other wedding I’ve been to. I see it manifested when I look down at the camera in my hands; an origin, a calling.

I’ve been taking pictures of people, places and things since I was 11 and got my first camera. In addition, I apprenticed with a photojournalist-turned-wedding photographer for nearly a year before striking out on my own. My preferred pronouns are she/her/hers.

I am drawn to the different, the instinctual and the organic. I seek the extraordinary, and to capture not just how something looks, but how it feels. Originally from Colorado, I am currently based in Madison, Wisconsin where I've learned that without mountains, golden hour really is much closer to an hour! What a luxury!

Some of my first photographs included dressing up Barbie and Ken and posing them around the yard.  #tbt

I have a Bachelor's and a Master's degree in conceptual art. My fine art work has been exhibited in galleries internationally. Art is my religion.

I believe in good planning, saying YES, AND..., and always getting everything in camera. It's rare that you will ever hear me say, "Eh, I'll just fix that later..."
