wedding + engagement + family + maternity
Marge Maghoney Photography
Welcome to Marge Maghoney Photography.
I'm psyched you found me and I'm excited to get started!
I'm not looking to meet your expectations. Nor do I want to exceed them.
I want to BLOW you away.
So talk to me. After giving me all the basic information about yourself and the event, let me know what else you want. Gushing about a wedding photo you saw on Pinterest? Send the link to me and we'll not just recreate them, we'll make an even better version of it. Conscious about something? (For me, it's my ass. Especially when I'm bloated.) Tell me what you don't feel so hot about. Like your right angle than your left? Then tell me what you are 200% comfortable in flauting. Have a killer clea-vahge? A Crest whitestrips smile? We'll pepper the shoot with highlights of these. Have a photo of your dress? Send it to me (firstname.lastname@example.org), it always kickstarts inspiration for the shoot. Share your love story. Tell me how you met and what sealed the deal.
Have fun browsing this site. You'll find full galleries at www.margemaghoney.com.
Check out previous posts on blog. There's a bunch of wedding tips there.
(We're currently transferring everything here.)
Looking forward to reading your first email and getting this party started!
It started with taking photos for leisure and sanity. Documenting moments of my life with friends and family. Enthusiasm turned to passion and passion led to a discovery of what truly makes me happy. I am a purple cow. A purple what? In a pasture, a purple cow would stand out from the rest, you would immediately notice it. A purple cow garners attention. The term was popularized by author Seth Godin in his book, Purple Cow, that "lists ideas on presenting yourself to clients in a more remarkable way, thus grabbing their attention and separating yourself from others in your field." I take pride in being chosen by my clients because of quality, quantity and a price range that spells out VALUE. That and they say I'm fun and chill to work with. I think when you've been doing something you love for so long, that comes naturally. It's easy for me to make you feel comfortable even if you feel you're at your dorkiest in front of a camera. Make you work it without looking like you're trying to. How? I guess it's just by being myself. And ridiculously focused on making you look the best on your photos and making your event a tighter set than the last. And isn't that what you want? When we're on the same page, we make the shoot an enjoyable experience and when you're having fun, that's when you look your best.

All this?! Seriously? Yes, sweetheart. And the icing on the cake? Payment plans. Chop it up into 3, 4...even 5 installments! You won't even notice everything's been paid for by the time you're done. My point of view is this. If I was the bride, or the birthday celebrant, or the excited recently engaged or the proud mom of a graduate looking for a photographer to capture my special day, being good is, well, not good enough. I want someone extraordinary who is willing to work with me with what I am willing to spend. I still get super excited with every new event I'm working on. I get pumped up brainstorming with my brides (and on a few occasions, grooms) on how we can make their day totally awesome. I treat you not as a business connection but as a friend. I am constantly thankful for you allowing me,someone you have never met before, to be part of your special day. Not just a guest, but to be there to document an event you and your family will look back to in the years to come. So I tailor packages in such a way that is all-inclusive. Check them out, compare them with what the other photographer you were planning on calling has to offer and you'll find that there is nothing close to it out there. If, in the rare chance that there is, it would cost at least three times more expensive than what I offer. And just between you and me, that is plain old crap. Sure, talent has a price. But $7,000 for a day's coverage? Kiss. My. Sweet bootie. You can get an excellent photographer, a videographer, a day of coordinator and a make-up artist for that amount. Shoot, you can buy yourself (and the rest of your family) five freakin' Macbooks for that price.
"We have an obligation to change the rules, to raise the bar, to play a different game, and to play it better than anyone has the right to believe is possible."
Can I get an AMEN?!
It is not just about changing the game. It is about being the best in the field because the best makes her clients happy and would not be happy herself by settling for less. Don't you agree?
It all boils down to this. I absolutely LOVE what I do! From my first email exchange with you, to brainstorming for new ideas, preparing my gear, discovering your best angle, finding the moments in-between, seeing the look on your fiance's face as he sees you for the first time, the interesting conversations I have with you and your family, the atmosphere of celebration, updating the website with new photos, editing, laying out photo books, reading kind words you left on Yelp (to this day this makes my heart do back flips) to personally writing thank you cards and seeing photos of your first born on Facebook. I feel incredibly blessed to be able to make a living out of what I enjoy so much and I feel it automatically translates to passing on that gift to you.
I won't bore you with a lengthy description of my 'style of photography.' Photos are meant to be seen and experienced. That is what the online portfolios are for. Craving for more? Head over to www.margemaghoney.com for full weddings.
Enjoy! Can't wait to meet you!
