Over the past decade and across more than 200 weddings, my mission has been to craft a one-of-a-kind experience for each couple I work with. On your wedding day, I'm not just an observer; I'm a versatile companion. I wear many hats, from offering words of encouragement to placing your veil, bustling your dress, ensuring every boutonnière is in place, and even stepping in as a last-minute florist. I'm your unwavering advocate, dedicated to fulfilling your every wish.
My love for photography has deep roots. Growing up, my Dad had a darkroom in our basement where he developed his own film, and I was captivated by the process. My true 'why' revealed itself during high school when I developed a roll of film just two days after my best friend's passing. That roll held the last photo I ever took of him. In that moment, I realized that photography would be the driving force behind my life's work.
In case you were wondering. it is pronounced May-gan ;). I am married to my best friend, Jared, who joins me at all of my weddings.
For the last 4 years he has been there to carry around the gear and set up lighting for the reception so I'm able to be the most efficient, and ready to go for all the most important moments. His role evolves based on the wedding, and he's known to become the wedding party chauffeur, snacks and drink fetcher during portraits, hype man to my couples, and second photographer.
We've got four incredible kids between the ages of 16 & 6, two dogs, Cookie & Vinnie, and a Maine Coon named Mini.
"Magan was hands down the best choice we made (other than marrying my husband!) for our wedding."
"Hire Magan if you want beautiful pictures. She had us literally tearing up at how stunning all her photos of us are and you don’t spend your entire wedding posing for pictures. Magan was hands down the best choice we made (other than marrying my husband!) for our wedding. You’ll love her personality and you will never regret hiring her for any occasion."
"She captures moments like no on I've seen in the business."
"Magan is a pro. If you're looking for artist to deliver on the biggest day of your life (wedding) she's your woman. She's honest, fair and fun to hang around with. I never write reviews but needed to for Evoke as the caliber of her work is amazing. It also helps she's leaned in digitally and can deliver your photos back in a seamless and easy way. Well done Magan. Keep on making people look like movie stars. :)"
" Her approach to personalize and tailor your experience to match your needs makes her an easey recommendation."
"I can't say enough good things about my experience with Magan. I was in the market for a photographer to capture a special moment and Magan was a joy to work with throughout the entire process. In order to look comfortable in photos, it is so crucial to have an upbeat, energetic personality that simultaneously can break any awkwardness with conversation or humor and Magan fulfills that in spades! Her approach to personalize and tailor your experience to match your needs makes her an easy recommendation."
"The pictures from our wedding day left us speechless."
Our engagement photo session, with Magan, was an absolute blast. We are so appreciative of Magan’s help and guidance throughout our wedding planning and forever GRATEFUL to have had her and her husband with us on our wedding day. Magan and Jared were perfect for us and our wedding group, and a huge part in making it all happen. The pictures from our wedding day left us speechless. We can’t stop looking at them. She captured every moment. We’re so thankful to not only have gained a photographer for life, but also a friend.
