HERE TO DOCUMENT YOUR LOVE, IN BETWEEN MOMENTS, AWESOME PORTRAITS AND MAYBE EAT SOME OF YOUR WEDDING CAKE TOO! But for real...your wedding photography is going to be the one thing you will look back on and show your grandkids one day. Not only is quality important when it comes to your photographs, but having a good connection with your wedding photographer is a must. A top priority of mine is to genuinely make you feel comfortable and remove any worries and doubt from your mind when it comes to getting photographed. You will want someone who makes you feel confident and comfortable leading up to your wedding and documenting the day. I can guarantee you will feel that way when you're working for me. After all, It's not just about the photos. It's about the experience you get as well.

I have been taking photos of South Florida weddings since 2016. As a wedding photographer, I get to use my creative energy to serve amazing couples, all while being my own boss and having fun with great people! I have always been creative, but photography spoke to me as a way to capture the most important moments in someone’s life. As a mom of three, I’ve learned the importance of capturing all of the little moments in life through photos that you can look back on. Photos help you cherish those memories and can bring back moments that would otherwise be gone.
Having my first child is what pushed me to become a truly successful professional wedding photographer. I wanted to make my kids proud and prove that you can follow your passion in life and be a successful person at the same time. I attended workshops, invested in my education, and became the amazing photographer that I am today. Being a photographer also gives me the ability to work with people that I really connect with and still be there for all three of my beautiful daughters.
When I’m not out taking photos of a wedding day, I stay busy providing the best life I can for my kids. We visit parks, museums, dance class, gymnastics, and other fun and active spots.

I met Mike while working at a local restaurant. I had zero tables that night and I remember him coming in to sit down with some friends. As soon as I saw him I knew I wanted his babies one day. Creepy? Maybe...But we did make the cutest babies in the end! 😝

We first called Maggie in March of 2021 to book her for our wedding in February of 2022.. her portfolio of work spoke for itself and she was the one vendor we couldn't go without. We spoke about the photos my now husband and I were looking for briefly and booked her immediately. She offered an engagement session to meet her and get to know us a little bit, upon booking, but since we had our photos taken already, we regretfully declined. We maintained contact just to check in with each other until the day of the wedding. The day of, she showed up on her contracted time, was extremely professional and so so amazing to work with. My husband, myself and my mother fell in love with Maggie's fun personality, eye for detail and passion for what she does. We also met her second shooter Sammi, whom we also loved.. They were extremely easy to work with and made me feel so comfortable in front of the camera as I have never been photographed by someone i didn't know. I could not have asked for a better team to photograph such an important moment in our lives. A few days after the wedding, we got our preview gallery and was amazed at the perfection of every picture. When we got our full album, i was floored at the amount of details of the day, that I honestly wouldn't have seen or remembered from the actual wedding day. I recommend Maggie Alvarez for any life event you need photographed, not just a wedding. These are pictures i will hold on to for the rest of my life and show future generations of our family. I will always also hold a special place in my heart for Maggie for capturing such a perfect day in the most perfect way.
"Maggie was outstanding! From our engagement shoot to the wedding day everything was amazing. She even offered us an extra engagement shoot because we got rained on the first one. Wedding day she was on top of everything. She was efficient and professional. We had some rain wedding day and she still made it work. She even gave us a sneak peak during the reception, which was amazing. We were blown away. Book her for all your photography needs! She does it all and you won't regret it!"
Maggie photographed our wedding and my wife and I were absolutely blown away. She is a uniquely creative style that seems to capture moments perfectly.
Each time we show our wedding photos to friends, the first question we get back often sounds like “who was your photographer?!”
On the day of the wedding, Maggie was extremely organized and made everything easy for us. It was noticeable that she did extensive research on the venue beforehand and really eased any concerns we had going into the wedding day. This in itself was invaluable and a sign of a high-end photographer.
Not only will we be using Maggie for any photoshoots in the future, but we HIGHLY recommend utilizing Maggie’s services to our friends and family. It is truly a first class experience working with Maggie and her team and we really could not be happier with our experience.
There isn’t a set number of photos you will receive in a wedding gallery. I will deliver all of the best images that I capture! On average, you will receive about 100 images per one hour of coverage, but there will be more if there is a second photographer with me! So if I cover 8 hours of your wedding day, you can expect to receive about 800 photos.
My one hour sessions include between 60 - 80 images!
You will receive your wedding photos in 6-8 weeks...occasionally 10 weeks if it's busy season.
You will receive your photos from one-hour engagement or lifestyle sessions in 2 weeks.
