Marge is AMAZING!! I was browsing the Internet about a year out from my wedding date and came across her website. Within seconds of reading her BIO I knew I found our perfect match. She was very quick on getting back to me and thankfully had our date open. Leading up to the wedding we emailed ideas, pictures and important guest info. Out of all the vendors we used, I felt most confident and at ease knowing I had her to be there on our big day. Wedding day was a big blur for me but not even a week later and I already have edited, BEAUTIFUL photos. I am so impressed by how fast we got our pictures and we LOVE them. I hope I have a reason in the future to work with Marge again!

If you want GREAT wedding photos without breaking the bank, Marge is your person. I love that you can contract her services by the hour. I found her on Craigslist and I'm so glad I did. My fiance and I only contracted her services for an hour and she did a spectactular job! She was prompt, very patient and a very nice person to work with. She captured unbelievable candid shots that left us saying "she captured that". She will be our go to photographer for years to come. I highly recommend Marge. If you're looking for a photographer Marge Maghoney won't disappoint!!

Marge offers a terrific value and great service. She was on time, professional and worked well with our family and friends. I was impressed with her responsiveness and how she goes the extra mile to create slideshows, photo books and online albums - much more than you'd expect, especially for the price. I'd definitely recommend her to others!

If I oculd give Marge 6 stars I would!
She was fantastic.

We were organising our City Hall wedding from England and so needed to feel we could trust the photographer to do a good job based on her online portfolio. Neither of us enjoy having our picture taken and so I wanted the more photojournalistic shots. Marge seemed to fit the bill perfectly and at such a good rate compared to other photographers I had seen, too good to be true!
She was great with communication and any questions or requests I had, she responded quickly to.

On the day itself, I was very nervous! Marge text me early on to let me know that she was on her way offering reassuring words and letting us know where to meet her.
Straight away she got to work, although there were a lot of posed/semi natural ones, they turned out really nicely. It was all very surreal and the comedy of it all (to us) settled our nerves and made the time waiting for our slot much more bearable.
Afterwards, she posted the discs to us which arrived shortly after we got home and then again wrote to us to assure us that the photobook was on it's way which I thought was very thoughtful.

Overall, I would not hesitate to book Marge again. We have lots of beautiful pictures to remember our day.

Thank you Marge!

Marge was our wedding photographer and she was awesome. She was everywhere at once and super easy to work with. She arrived early and stayed late at the reception. She took over 1000 shots throughout the day! Marge is very high energy, got all of the pictures and professional. She would double check shots to make sure that no one was blinking. She was amazing!

I feel proud of myself for having found Marge. I spent hours and hours looking for a quality wedding photographer I can afford. I painstakingly spent hours online, asking friends, joining different wedding forums and encountered lots of disappointments with the photographer out there charging thousands of dollars and only for a few hours of coverage! A friend of mine suggested I go on Craigslist. And there I found her. I was very easy to get in touch with her. I sent her an email and left my number and she replied right away! She took really beautiful photographs of my wedding (me getting ready, my entire ceremony & my reception) and all for just $900.00! I told her I would refer her to my friends and spread the word. I guess she has really low overhead costs so she passes on those savings to brides & grooms with a tight budget (like me). =)

It was worth it taking our time looking for the right photographer. We found Marge just before we were about to book with this other photographer. Marge was very professional, very friendly and put us and our friends and family at ease and came up with the most amazing photos at almost half the price the photographer we almost booked was charging! We loved our pics and have been recommending Marge to people. The deluxe photo book we ordered looks so professionally made, it looks like one of those expensive wedding books! We've shown our photo book to so many people!

My husband and I were married in Millbrae. Marge's photography captured the day perfectly. Her photos have a way of telling a story. I love to look back at our wedding pictures because it is like reliving the best day of my life all over again. We will definitely use Marge in the future.

Message from Marge Maghoney Photography

Hey y'all!

I'm psyched you found me! Welcome to Marge Maghoney Photography, where the hunt ends for your photographer. I'm not kidding. By the time you finish browsing through this website, see how much I charge (and ask"Why isn't she charging more?"),check out the photos, read about past clients' experiences working with me, you'd be more or less crossing your fingers that I'm available on your wedding day. Sounds obnoxious? Don't worry. I'm not. Not at all. Just straight up and insanely focused on providing you with an awesome experience from a fast and simple booking process to rockin' it out on your wedding day, amazing blow-by-blow photos and super quick turn-around-times (a week).

I don't want to meet your expectations.

Nor do I want to exceed them.

I want to blow you away.

I have a simple list of packages to choose from and it will only take you a few minutes to pick out what best suits your needs, event and of course budget (c'mon now, everyone knows that's numero uno!). If you want to tweak the packages a little bit, talk to me. Want to add a photo booth? Ask for a package deal. Nothing's ever set in stone. We'll work something out.

I love efficiency and effectiveness. And I'm betting so do you. So in order of communication preferences, it's email, phone, online meetings (Skype) and in-person meetings.

So go ahead and look around the website, check out the photos (there's more on www.margemaghoney.com, see what's included in the packages and products you might want for your family (and friends). You might like an extra photo book for your parents. Or you might want to rent the Fun Photo Booth to make your party truly kick ass!

Feel free to contact me for any comments, questions or anything you would like to clarify!

I am SO looking forward to meeting and working with you! I treasure all the connections I've made doing what I do. Check back every now and then for new updates to this website. I'm constantly tweaking it! Much more to come!

More about Marge Maghoney Photography

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 stand out among photographers in the Bay Area and I get picked by my clients because of quality, quantity and a price range that spells out V-A-L-U-E. That and I'm hell of fun to work with. I'll make you 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 do I do it? 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. Back to value. Let's say for example, for than $2.5K, you can get a full day's coverage, complete post processing, rights to your photos (duh, they are yours), 4 DVDs (original, edited in color and black & white and your photo storybook slideshow), an online gallery and photo account, an 5 x 7 photo book (magazine-style and easy to carry around), a photo storybook slideshow on YouTube (to share with friends and family) and photos uploaded to our Facebook fan page where you'll be able to instantly share your album and tag up the photos, that way your guests can laugh and enjoy the memories the night created. All this?! Seriously? Yes, seriously. And the icing on the cake? Payment plans. Chop it up into 6, 7, 8...even 10 monthly 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 our 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 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 like it out there. If, in the rare event that there is, I would bet it would cost at least three times more expensive than what I offer. And just between you and me, that is plain bull crap. Sure, talent has a price. But $10,000 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) eight freakin' Macbooks for that price. Seth Godin (in his book,"Tribes"), wrote: "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 happy celebration, updating the website with new photos, making props for the Fun Booth, editing, laying out photo books, receiving beautiful testimonials (to this day this makes my heart do back flips) to personally writing thank you cards. I feel incredibly blessed to be able to make a living out of what I enjoy so very much and it's just almost automatic to pass 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 Gallery is for. Craving for more? Head over to www.margemaghoney.com for more. Enjoy! Can't wait to meet you! :)
