Where on earth do I even begin? About a year and a half ago Maggie did my husband and my good friends’ wedding in Sun Valley, and that was where we met. Throughout the day and evening of the wedding, her and I got to talking, finding we have way too much in common, and thus a friendship was born. She pulled my then boyfriend aside and told him that if ever he was to propose to me, she wanted to photograph our wedding.
Fast forward to a month later, I was engaged and ready to plan. I came to find that planning a wedding is stressful and time consuming. There were so many BIG decisions we had to make in order to ensure this big day was one that was true to us, and definitely the easiest decision we had to make (besides saying “I do”) was choosing our photographer. We had seen her work with our friends’ wedding and it captured their day so perfectly with the most beautiful pictures, it was no question she was our girl.
Over the year of planning my wedding, I probably bugged Maggie more than I should have, asking her advice on colors, wedding shoes, dessert ideas, etc. Anything and everything I asked not only was she happy to give her two cents, but she was EXCITED for me, only adding to my excitement for the big day.
Our wedding was everything we could’ve ever wanted and more, and now because of Maggie we get to relive the best day of our lives every day of our lives (yeah this is me admitting that I’ll probably continue to look at the pictures every single day). Having your picture taken, especially in such a moment as intimate as this, can be awkward. She made my husband and I comfortable, she walked us through the process, AND made the process fun and light hearted.
Maggie and her intern Hannah worked their butts off all day taking pictures of us, then danced the night away with us and our guests (all while still taking pictures), and we still received a handful of sneak peek pictures the very next afternoon.
She captured our day perfectly. Our personalities, the overall feel of the day, our friends, our families, and all the fun that was had. We can look at the pictures and be right back in those moments forever.
Thank you thank you from the bottom of our hearts for giving us the best wedding gift we could have ever received.

In short, Maggie is phenomenal. Her fun, energetic and beautiful personality is precisely what we wanted in our photographer. She made two people who aren’t the most comfortable in front of the camera feel so at ease and able to just be ourselves without being intimidated by being photographed. She laughed with us all day and it was a dream. That doesn’t even begin to cover how beautiful her work is! I am still so blown away by her unique and creative eye and style. We couldn’t have asked for someone more perfect to spend our day with or give us the most wonderful photos to remember it by.

Maggie is a cheerful, professional artist whose personality puts you at ease the moment you meet her. My wife and I had a vision to elope on the Isle of Skye in Scotland and we wanted a photographer who could capture the moodiness of the landscape as well as the smaller intimate moments. A co-worker recently used Maggie for their elopement in the Sawtooth Mountains and we loved the way she captured their raw emotions. The beauty and simplicity of their pictures in nature perfectly captured this once in a lifetime event. Maggie’s ability to see what moments need to be photographed is incredible. We knew she was the perfect choice for us!
Once in Scotland, we had only a couple of days to scout a spot and have a wedding ceremony. Maggie’s professionalism was exhibited in her hospitable and selfless service. She was integral in selecting the ceremony spot while still allowing us creative control over our day. We had a great time exploring and making lifelong memories together. It was an honor to have her share our special day with us and we honestly couldn’t have done this without her. Maggie was easy-going and efficient in her work and she created a stress-free feeling that allowed my wife and I to be ourselves. She said, “Just be yourselves and don’t look at me!” so that’s exactly what we did and our photos are a true work of art. We received our edited photos quickly and she also made us a beautiful wedding album. We highly recommend getting a package that includes an album. It’s super high quality and it’s so nice to have it done for you. Scenic weddings are her specialty and you’re guaranteed to receive gorgeous photos, plus a new friend.

I found Maggie by chance one day exploring hashtags on Instagram. I came across her page and knew immediately I had to book her for my engagement session. She was so personable and genuinely sweet. Sometimes taking pictures can be a little awkward, but she instantly made us feel relaxed and comfortable. She didn’t make us pose, just told us to walk around and be ourselves. She really captured our personalities and love for each other. After we got our pictures back, we totally changed our idea of having an Oregon wedding with a bunch of people to having a small elopement style wedding in Idaho so we could have Maggie photograph our day. She has helped me every step of the way. She has been more than just a photographer, giving us locations to go check out, vendors to look into, and always giving me great ideas to make sure the day is truly special. I couldn’t imagine having any other photographer to photograph our wedding. She is one of a kind and I’m so lucky that I stumbled across her page.

My fiancé and I are from Arizona, but we planned on moving here to Idaho this fall/winter, and we decided to elope up there as well. Not being from the area, or knowing anyone there at all, I started researching to find photographers out of Boise area, and I looked at SO many pages, seriously it felt like I spent days on this task of finding a photographer. And I finally came across Maggie’s website, her photography spoke to me, her work is incredible! Without even showing or talking to my fiancé first about it (oops!) I emailed her, I had to have her photograph our elopement! Luckily, he agreed once I showed him her page, and we booked Maggie! I could not of been any happier working with Maggie, she was SO helpful with everything, not just the photography part. She helped me find a location, referred us to a florist, and helped me book an officiant! All of this was so helpful with me living in Arizona at the time! When our elopement day finally came around, we were so bummed to hear that there were many wildfires in the area and the smoke was really bad in the Sawtooth Mountains.
We were really bummed that the beautiful Sawtooth elopement we had planned was going to end up being extremely smokey and we wouldn’t even be able to see the mountains. But, Maggie comforted me right away in allowing us the decision to postpone, she worked with us on getting a new date and we bumped it back to November (knowing there would be a high possibility for snow and freezing temperatures). When the new date came around, Stanley and the surrounding mountains had received a fresh snow overnight! Maggie was all game for going out in the snow and capturing our magical day. It was so magical, and I really think that Maggie is who made that happen for us! Her friend Emily with Emily Aitken Events helped in making our day so, so special by bringing s’mores and hot cocoa and a campfire pit for us to enjoy after the ceremony! Maggie really helped us in booking “The Dream Team” and we could not be any happier with our elopement day! Not to mention, the photos she took were AMAZING! She has the best personality, is always cheerful, and takes INCREDIBLE wedding photos!

Maggie did an amazing job with our wedding! She interacted with our guests, took great pictures, and created a beautiful album for us. People comment all the time on how sweet she was to have at our wedding and ask who took our photos constantly. My pictures turned out so beautifully, I absolutely adore them. She provides a professional, yet fun and comfortable environment. She has such an eye for detail and creativity, and took shots of things/poses I wouldn’t have even thought of. I would absolutely work with her again! Maggie has an enthusiastic, warm, and caring personality. We had an intimate mountaintop wedding and I’d recommend her to anyone!

My husband and I had Maggie Grace Photography take anniversary photos of us last October. We took casual, romantic, and wedding-esque photos.
I came to Maggie with a hole in my heart. I wanted better photos of my husband and me. I wanted photos that captured US. I wanted photos that showed how in love we are, how we’ve grown as a couple over the last five years, and photos I could cherish for a lifetime.
Maggie took on my requests. She prepared with me, she scoped locations for me, and she assured me that I would love my photos and I did. I have six canvases hanging in my home of the photos Maggie did. I have had them printed for family members. I use them on social media every chance I get because I love them so much.
Maggie was a dream photographer. She made us laugh during the shoot, and made us comfortable. She threw out compliments that boosted our confidence of being in front of a camera but wasn’t afraid to tell us to make small adjustments in our head positioning, where our hands were, if my wedding rings were crooked, all to get the perfect images. She has a quick turnaround and will gush over your photos with you. Maggie will make you fall in love all over again. She will make you feel beautiful. She will make you feel like you are worth it.
I recommend Maggie to anyone looking for engagement, wedding, or anniversary photos. You will not be disappointed in the least. In fact, if you don’t cry tears of happiness upon seeing your images it’s probably only because you’re in complete and utter awe over how beautiful they are.

I found Maggie through a wedding she did in Stanley being published in Rocky Mountain Bride and knew I had to have her! I changed my original wedding date to have her photograph my wedding and she was the best decision I made during my wedding planning! Our wedding pictures are to die for and she literally made everything about the day seem easy, natural, and fun! She is the best! We love her so much and have every intention of using her for family photos in the years that follow! Her work is flawless!
