How to Plan Your Vegas Wedding

"Magan was hands down the best choice we made (other than marrying my husband!) for our wedding."

Jessica & Goutham

"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."

Matt & Stephanie

"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."

Ben & Janya

"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."

Danny & Victoria

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.
