Picture this...you just got engaged to the love of your life (YAY!!! Congrats!!!). You’ve picked the date, the venue, have somewhat of an idea of what you want to wear, and have your squad all in place. Sound familiar?
Now, who will be your eyes throughout the day? These people are going to be the keeper of some of your most treasured moments, so they have to be people you can trust, right? People you’re confident can handle anything that pops up with grace and has a demeanor that allows you to just live in the moment.
Well, that’s where we come in! If you are in need of a with the knowledge, skills, and personality to help make your wedding day unforgettable, then you are in the right place, friends!
We entered into the business of documenting true love when two incredible people (and now dear friends) got engaged and wanted US to photograph their wedding! We had never shot a wedding at that point and were nervous to say the least, but Jake & Brittany gave us the little nudge we needed to take our business to the next level just three years ago. When we decided to shoot this wedding, we made a pact that weddings would not be our main photography focus, and that we would stick to portraits as our area of expertise... but you guys... we fell in love with love! We just can't say no, and our main goal in our five year plan is to book more amazing luxury weddings for couples who are head over heels in love with one another. We want to help each couple start their marital journey with joyful memories they can enjoy for anniversaries to come!
The relationships and experiences that we’ve cultivated with our couples last well beyond the wedding day, and, in our humble opinion, that’s exactly how it should be!
We’re excited for you to keep scrolling down to learn more about what being an MWP bride and/or groom truly means, and how we can provide you with a one-of-a-kind experience that celebrates the unique love you and your partner have for each other. Because as we say here at MaeWood, “Love is love is love. And it is always worth celebrating.”
"[They] made our day an absolute dream..."
Kaila and Jake
thank you for the love
"I CAN'T THANK MAEWOOD PHOTOGRAPHY ENOUGH FOR WHAT THEY DID ON MY WEDDING DAY. THE ENTIRE CREW, JES, MEGAN, AND MICHAEL, MADE OUR DAY AN ABSOLUTE DREAM. EVERYONE TALKED ABOUT HOW AMAZING THEY WERE AND HOW MUCH FUN WE ALL HAD!"
"When is the last time you fell in love with a vendor?"
ADAM & Jenelle
thank you for the love
When is the last time you fell in love with a vendor? From the first interview we had with Jes & Meg, we knew that we had found our photographers. Their energy, confidence, and professionalism are unmatched by anything I have ever seen. They blew us away with their ability to adapt to weather, venue, and wardrobe issues & deliver images that far exceeded expectation. They double as wedding coordinators helping make sure that we weren't forgetting things that could detract from our big day. Then, the big day arrived. Jes and Meg made everything SO(!) FUN(!) - the stress of the day melted away and everyone had a great time. With regard to delivery, timeliness, and issues.. everything came early, everything exceeded expectation, and we had ZERO issues.
"what is crazy is that i can't even put together words at the moment... this just means the world to our family..."
Scarlette & George
thank you for the love
Words like thoughtful, exceedingly talented, creative, endearing, passionate, sensitive, meticulously organized, charming, compassionate, brilliant and gifted all seem to fall just a bit short when it comes to Jes. From the first moment we spoke on the phone I knew I found someone very special and gifted. To this
day, I think Jes was put in our path as a reward for some of the chaos and trying times we found
ourselves in along the way. It's so rare to find a person that is so naturally selfless and has such a
"We are in absolute awe!..."
Mario and Mackenzie
thank you for the love
We had the best day of our lives and are happy that Jes and Meg were able to capture it! We finally had a chance to sit down and go through the entire gallery together and we are in absolute awe!!!!! We absolutely LOVE the pictures!! Not only were they able to capture us but they got the Best shots of our puppy, Lui!! They did such an amazing job and we have gotten nothing but complements with the pictures from the blog!
"i can't imagine having any other photographers"
Cole & Stephanie
thank you for the love
"We cannot say enough about Jes and Meg. From the moment they signed on, they not only made planning a breeze (super organized) but made the entire experience fun and a dream. They were extremely professional, accommodating and super fun - oh and they are also super talented. Photos were the most important part of our wedding and I can't imagine having any other photographers there. They captured our vision exactly and I am happy to call them my friends. We will definitely be using them for photos in the future. 5++++++ stars."
Our process is not a one size fits all model so before you ever choose our team to capture your wedding day, we want to make sure we are the perfect fit for your exclusive services. We get to know each of our brides and grooms, so that we can understand their love, dreams, and desires for their wedding day. The better we get to know each other, the better we can be at not only serving you, but make you feel comfortable in front of the camera, capture your own story, not everyone else's, and anticipate the electric moments throughout your day.
