“In an industry with so many talented photographers, Margarette is truly a gem because of her genuine passion for telling stories with her art. Like actually genuine. She undoubtedly has the technical skill and eye for the stuff, but she also has this rare heart for bringing out the spirits of those whom she photographs…” // Jamie & Kenny
If there’s one thing I’d like you to take out of this perhaps lengthy intro on why I do what I do, it’s that:
I aspire to encourage others to

Photographing two people in love, & capturing the beauty of their wedding day is truly amazing! I love capturing all the candid moments my couples might not see or remember, & let them relive their day through the eyes of my lens! I want to do my very best to serve my brides & grooms by capturing & creating beautiful memories for you to keep well beyond your wedding day to help remind you of the precious day you promised to love one another ’til death do you part!
And as life moves on beyond each photograph, it’s my sincere hope that these images blended with the stories behind them can help preserve the foundation of their love. Because marriage involves two imperfect people joining together, I hope that by giving them something to tangibly look back on & remember during the good & bad, they’ll have a little help in pressing on in l o v e & g r a c e .
My second hope is that their love & their stories, whether simple or intricate, can inspire, give hope, & encourage others at the same time. The world has enough fake love going around, I think it’s time for people to see what’s r e a l . :)
The three things I love most about being a photographer + storyteller?
1 | Working with the most amazing brides & grooms who undoubtedly love each other, & those around them, who grace me with their presence & allow me to photograph them & document their love.
2 | Creating space for my clients to be fully present with one another–it’s my joy to have them be silly together, laugh with one another, reminisce on memories together & just cuddle! Those genuine moments are so beautiful!
3 | Being given the honor of hearing & writing their special love stories out. It seriously gives me so much joy hearing how delighted my clients are in reading their story blended with their beautiful images!
“Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrong doing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends.” – 1 Corinthians 13:4-8
One of my favorite things to do is quote my clients in seeing what helped their relationship thrive, & also sharing wisdom I’ve learned elsewhere that has helped me in my own relationship with John! You can view a couple of the quotes using my somewhat newly launched Instagram Hashtag, #MarriageQuoteMondays!
**Disclaimer: I’m not at all claiming to be an expert in any way on marriage, but I think there’s a lot of wisdom to be found & shared with others that can definitely help. :)
