"Having Maigan as our photographer for our wedding day was the best decision we could have made. I had seen her work a year earlier at a good friend’s wedding and was in awe of how beautifully the day was captured. As soon as I was engaged my first email was to Maigan to check her availability. It seems like it was meant to be, because we already had out date set, and as is turns out that was also the only free Saturday of the month that Maigan had left. During our first meeting, Maigan’s personality was infectious. She was so warm and welcoming and I instantly felt like I was catching up with an old friend. I had warned Maigan that neither my husband nor I are overly photogenic, she told me not to worry and that she would ensure we would look amazing on the big day. It was a lot of fun meeting up with Maigan at our scout a few weeks before the wedding. Maigan found spots we would have never thought of for photos and had us so excited to see the finished product. The first time I looked at my photos I literally had tears in my eyes reliving the most magical day. Maigan, I cannot thank you enough for so beautifully capturing our day. You so beautifully photgraphed the details of the day as well as us enjoying the best day of our lives. You and Wes were so much fun to have around and had all of us laughing the entire day. Not only did you make it fun for Brett and me, but our entire wedding party and our families all told us how great you both were to work with, and how you so effectively planned the day out. There was a never a time where we felt like we were standing around waiting or rushed to get more photos in. Brett and I felt so comfortable and really loved the direction you gave us the entire day. Our favourite part was having you there for the dance party to Wilson Phillips to end the night off. I would absolutely recommend Maigan Cowen photography to anyone looking for an amazing photographer. We look forward to working with Maigan again in the future!!"
"Professional, personable, talented, and beyond friendly are only a few words that come to mind when I think of Maigan Cowen Photography. Her and her team went above and beyond to capture a lifetime of memories of our destination wedding in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. From the time we first met to the last meeting I was beyond impressed with her high standard of service of her team and herself. She was very detail oriented and adaptive to what we wanted. When I had a picture in mind she made it that much more incredible. You better believe Maigan Cowen Photography will be capturing all of the upcoming milestones in our lives. Thank you Maigan for going above and beyond with your services. We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer to capture this day. Our children will be able to look at our wedding photos while they are growing up and I will have such great pride in them. I can’t thank you enough!"
"Choosing Maigan as our photographer was honestly the easiest decision we made along the way! When we got engaged, I searched all over looking into different photographers and got about 10 pictures through Maigan’s website and knew that I needed to call her. I remember calling her that night and we spent the night discussing our visions and we really just ‘clicked’! We later met up and discussed further details. Maigan came prepared with ideas on locations for our engagements pictures etc. She made us so excited for our special day! Our engagement pictures turned out amazing, we were blown away by Maigan’s energy, her willingness to get the perfect picture and her dedication (she was climbing over rocks and walking through streams). Maigan was a huge reason why our wedding day went so smoothly! We had a 16 person wedding party and she was able to keep all of us on track throughout all the pictures and really made the day go perfectly. Her energy and excitement the entire day clearly shows how much passion and love she has for her job and we truly couldn’t have picked a better person to capture our engagement, wedding and after shoot pictures. We honestly can’t say enough about Maigan as a person and as a photographer! Maigan is such a beautiful person inside and out and we would highly recommend her to anybody! Maigan; thank you for everything! We are so grateful for all the pictures that we will have to cherish forever!"
"One word, WOW. I can’t tell you how many people have complimented us on our amazing and talented photography from our wedding & and engagement shots. Unbelievable! It was amazing to work with someone with such an artistic eye at work. Not only were the pictures fabulous, but you and Wes were such a lovely presence to have around, which I feel allowed you to catch our guests, wedding party and US at our best! Our day was special, but it was made even more so by having you guys around, and carried on into forever by your amazing talents! The best part of the journey was choosing Maigan Cowan Photography as our photographer!"
"A big THANK YOU to Maigan Cowen Photography for capturing beautiful photos of our special day! After completing our engagement session we knew we had picked the right photographer for our wedding. Maigan was artistic yet professional, capturing many photos that we didn’t even know could exist. Maigan and Wes got down and dirty as needed to complete their work which resulted in many beautiful photos of us, our wedding party and guests. We have received numerous comments on the beauty of our photos are and have been told they are “Vogue Magazine” quality. Maigan has a special talent that utilizes light and landscape to find the perfect background for those special moments. Maigan and Wes also did an amazing job capturing candid photos of our wedding and guests, which was very important to us when selecting a photographer. We would (and have) recommend Maigan Cowen Photography to newly engaged couples looking for exquisite wedding photos that capture the essence of their wedding."
"We honestly could not be happier with our whole experience with Maigan Cowen Photography. From the moment we got engaged, we knew that Maigan had to capture our big day! We had the great privilege of working with Maigan twice before our wedding! Looking back on our previous shoots, it was clear that Maigan was made for this profession. From day one she was able to capture the little moments between us, making us feel comfortable in front of the camera. Even though we may have been one of her early clients, her talent from day one was undeniable. Maigan took the time to figure out what we were looking for in our shots. When we met to discuss our engagement shoot, wedding details, and after shoot, Maigan came completely prepared, having tons of ideas for us! This made us even more excited for the big day! On the day of our wedding, Maigan played a huge part in the day running smoothly. She kept us on track for timing, kept everyone’s energy up ALL day while seamlessly capturing every little moment that most would have missed. Maigan didn’t stop shooting until the day was over, and even then she stayed to check in with us in case we wanted any other important shots. Maigan was there completely for the right reasons – to make us happy, and that meant the world to us. When we got our wedding photos back we were absolutely speechless. We couldn’t stop smiling and laughing and crying. There are so many stunning shots, amazing moments, and incredible memories. We loved the way Maigan was able to capture the small details of our wedding. The beautiful flowers, jewelry, the ballroom, the list goes on and on. She was so creative and really captured the essence of our day! Secondly, we truly loved the candid shots Maigan captured of our friends and family. Maigan was able to capture so many amazing moments that most would have missed! Thanks to Maigan Cowen Photography, they will never be forgotten. Lastly, Maigan blew us away when we did our beautiful fall themed after shoot! We had so much fun and loved that we were able to get some amazing shots in a different setting with all the beautiful fall colours! Our after shoot really compliments Maigan as an artist. She is so creative and willing to work with whatever vision you may have, adding her own personal touches to capture beautiful images. The best decision of our wedding planning was hiring Maigan Cowen Photography to capture our day. Maigan encompasses all the things you could ask for in a photographer. She is professional, dedicated to her clients and their needs, completely passionate about her work, and never misses a moment. Maigan is extremely talented and a beautiful person inside and out. We would recommend her to anyone!"
"Maigan, your photos are exquisite. We were eager to book you for our wedding, having seen the shoots you've done for others. You are a standout, and your hard work and talent are making other photographers take notice...not to mention making your clients very, very happy. The new girl is here, and she has a tool-kit full of surprises. What fascinates me most is this: I'm looking at a photo you've taken, and I can see all the reasons I would've wanted to make that moment freeze - a permanent memory. If only it were as easy as pressing a button, at the perfect angle, with the proper lens for the lighting, etc, etc, etc... You look for flashes of elegance, handsome milliseconds, and find the lively moments that others miss - I swear you don't blink, ever... What's crazy is how you stay spirited about each click, and how before you know it, the hours are gone, and your magic is ready to live on. Thank you for your commitment to us, to our day, and the hours of prep that went into delivering us a package of smiles with your signature touch in each..."
"From the moment we met Maigan, we knew we wanted her to be our wedding photographer. She was so professional during our consult, we were very impressed with her preparedness and how many questions she asked us about our vision for the day. We were immediately confident that she understood our vision and would do an amazing job on our engagement shoot and wedding day. After we signed the contract, Maigan gave us a timeline of events in the coming months and what we could expect. That put us at ease as we didn’t have to worry about getting in touch with her to schedule our engagement shoot. When we had our engagement shoot, Maigan put us at ease right away. We walked the grounds and she found a lot of great locations. Her energy and excitement about the location kept our energy levels up! She provided us great direction and also let us just be us and forget she was there. Maigan has an eye for capturing moments. Our favourite photos from our engagement shoot and wedding day are of the candid moments. On the wedding day, Maigan and Wes were incredible! We had terrible weather and Maigan was quick to make a backup plan for us and didn’t take away from the photos at all. Seeing how gorgeous the photos are makes us forget how cold and windy it was that day and reminds us of how surrounded by love we were. She captured us :) We would recommend Maigan to anyone looking for a photographer and hope we are able to work together again!"
"We learned about Maigan Cowen Photography through some friends who shared that her work was very unique, beautiful and a true piece of art. This could not be truer. Maigan Cowen and her team were absolutely amazing to work with in every way possible. Throughout our engagement shoot, we were taken back by how many really unique ideas Maigan had for us, which in the end really captured the love we have for each other. This continued on for the big day. Maigan has a truly creative eye and really makes you feel so very comfortable throughout all the craziness of the wedding day. Her teams professionalism, witty humour and collaborative nature resulted in us having a blast and the final product being AMAZING! I can't even tell you how many people have told us our wedding photos should be in a magazine! They really capture the beauty of the best day of our life and are more then we could have asked for!! They exceeded our expectations in every way. I am very thankful to have met Maigan as she added so many special touches to our wedding day. I've said it before and I'll say it again - you are a true artist."
"We really lucked out having Maigan Cowen as a photographer for our wedding. She captured our day beautifully and gave us the gift of amazing images to remember and cherish for a lifetime. We were first taken in by Maigan's website gallery photos. Her pictures were creative, professional and polished. Due to our hectic schedule we decided to book her immediately even with out the face-to-face meeting. We quickly knew just the through email exchanges that Maigan would be great to work with and that we made a good decision. She had wonderful suggestions right from the start and was very open to ideas. Our engagement photo session fell on a very cold and snowy day in London. Maigan showed up ready to work; climbing through knee deep snow banks to get the best shots. She almost immediately put us at ease and we had a great time. She has a way of keeping it fun. She was constantly looking for the best light and positions all the while keeping us engaged in the moment. We were so pleased with the final photos we knew we were in great hands for our big day. As luck would have it, our summer wedding fell on an extremely rainy Saturday in July. With what could have put a damper on the day, Maigan and her assistant Wes stepped up to the challenge and captured our day perfectly - rain showers and all. Once again, Maigan adapted quickly and kept everyone excited and happy all while still getting the perfect pictures. Thanks to Maigan and Wes, we will always have the wonderful memory of dancing in rain on our wedding day. Her hard work and dedication was so very much appreciated. After the wedding we asked Maigan to put together our custom wedding album. It was the final touch and I would highly recommend it. She knew exactly how to lay out the photos. The album is absolutely stunning. From start to finish Maigan was a true professional. We will definitely be asking Maigan to capture our future family photos in the years to come."
"Immediately after getting engaged I took to social media scouring through local photographers, I was instantly drawn to the effortless look to Maigan's work, how she pulled out that natural beauty from her couples. She quickly made my short list and by short list I mean she was the one and only person I wanted photographing our wedding. I contacted her quickly and even with a short engagement and most of her summer booked she had our day open, it was meant to be! We had a unique wedding in mind, a surprise, people knew of our engagement but thought we were getting married in the backyard in September. Maigan was of course in on the surprise and when people arrived at a country property in the middle of July for an engagement party they quickly learned it was a wedding. Maigan was genuinely excited to be apart of it and eager to capture every moment of it. After telling her the details of the property we were getting married at, her creativity ran wild. My now husband is 2 things - 1. not someone that loves to have his picture taken and 2. not a man for PDA, but Maigan and Wes created an environment that day that made him comfortable, able to let his guard down and enjoy the moment, something I'm not sure would have happened with any other team of photographers. Looking through the pictures afterwards revealed that Maigan and Wes caught everything that day, there wasn't one detail big or small that they missed or I thought to myself 'I really wish they would have gotten that moment'. These are pictures that will last a life time and choosing Maigan Cowen Photography was the best decision I could have ever made - the leftover cake or the bad music will be forgotten but the pictures will be around forever."
"I don’t even know where to begin. From the second we had our appointment with Maigan, she showed so much passion and love for photography that it made our decision easy. Maigan is incredibly talented and very organized! Choosing Maigan as our wedding photographer was the best decision we have made. She was personable and extremely professional. I was so nervous about being organized and on schedule for our big day however, Maigan has so much experience - she kept us on our schedule and captured all our memorable moments. Our photos are stunning and even looking back on them months later, they draw forth the emotions we had on our wedding day. Her passion and love for photography is evident in her stunning photos and I couldn’t have asked for anything more!"
"Working with Maigan Cowen for our wedding and engagement photography was easy and fun! Most importantly, every key aspect of our wedding was captured. Maigan was always professional. She took amazing portrait and candid shots, and always provided great tips and direction to ensure our poses were natural and that we looked our best. All communication prior to both shoots was very timely. We met her twice in person to cover the wedding details and once a week before our wedding at my parents’ house and the reception location to assess exactly which locations would photograph the best based on the lighting conditions at that time of the day. This allowed us to plan our day accordingly and maximized our shooting time on the day of the wedding. Maigan had all edited photos in our possession within a month of our wedding. I would recommend Maigan to anyone who is looking for a wedding, engagement, family, or any other photographer. She was great to work with and most importantly, her images are absolutely stunning.
"Book now! Maigan Cowen is an all-star in the photography field. She is an extremely talented artist. We were instantly drawn to her portfolio of magical collections. Upon meeting Maigan, Steve and I felt like we had known her for years. We travelled together to St. Joe’s beach for a fun evening of engagement shooting. During this golden-hour Maigan coached us with endless cues and guidance through our first photo-shoot as a couple. Leaving that shoot we were confident that our wedding day would be captured at its best. So many special moments were captured in their purest. We cannot thank Maigan and her team enough for capturing beautiful candids of so many special moments and people in our lives. We will forever cherish her work! We highly recommend Maigan Cowen Photography and promise you won’t be disappointed with the exquisite collections you will receive!"
"I first heard of Maigan Cowen Photography through a close friend who had used her for her wedding. After taking a look at her pictures and comparing them to other photographers, I knew it was a no brainer and that we had to go with her for our special day. Our first meeting with Maigan was during our engagement session. She seemed to be up for anything and had no problem when we asked her if we could do our session up in Ipperwash Beach where we spend our summers. Maigan made us feel comfortable during the entire process. I am not a big fan of having my picture taken but Maigan put us at ease as soon as the shoot started. On our wedding day, Maigan was very organized, outgoing and worked hard to get the formals done quickly so we were able to join our guests for the cocktail hour. Everyone comments on how beautiful our pictures turned out, and we couldn't be happier."
"My husband and I chose Maigan Cowen to be our photographer for our wedding after looking through her lovely portfolio of wedding and engagement pictures. Upon our first communication with Maigan I knew that we had made the right choice. She was extremely friendly and professional, and it was obvious that she has a great passion for photography and her craft. Maigan had no shortage of ideas of how to best capture our wedding day in a unique way that reflected our wedding and us as a couple. She was always ready to answer any questions we had in a prompt manner and ready to accommodate any number of requests. Not only is Maigan a talented photographer, but she is a joy to have around on your wedding day. She is spirited, full of energy, and does all she can to get the best pictures possible. Maigan did a great job of keeping everything on schedule and making everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera. Our pictures were stunning and I truly could not have asked for a better final product. We will treasure Maigan’s pictures of our wedding day, and have those memories for years to come."
"The first time we met Maigan we knew that we wanted her to be the one to capture our special day. Her instant warmth towards us and knowledge about the business was refreshing. When we met her husband Brad, we saw the whole day coming together. The two of them together were just amazing! Between their skill and charisma we could not have IMAGINED a better couple to help us photograph our wedding day. My husband and I are not overly photogenic but Maigan and Brad both helped tremendously in getting us to loosen up and feel comfortable. They made us feel like friends, so the smiles came naturally giving us beautiful photos we cannot stop looking at. The lighting and angles, the background and every little detail were paid special attention to to produce an unforgettable experience and lasting photos. The creativity in between these two is unstoppable and that is apparent in their work. They are the perfect balance of friendly and professional as they work with you on your ideas and make you feel comfortable while making sure every detail is recorded for you in a timely manner. Maigan! Brad! You are both such great people and I would (and do!) highly recommend you to anyone looking for a photographer! Thank you again so very much!"
"I had never really heard of any photographers in the London area. For our wedding day I started to do some research looking at different photographers work. As soon as I found Maigan I knew she was exactly the style and kind of person I was looking for. I immediately contacted her to meet. Going into the meeting I already knew I wanted her to capture the big day. My husband and I are not big on being in photos let alone being the center of attention for all photos. We did engagement photos first just to get more comfortable in front of the camera, however instantly we felt right at home with Maigan. She was so genuine and nice. When we got our photos back we were so pleased with them. I love her artistic side and the detail photos she takes. She really knows how to capture the real moments. Our wedding photos turned out just as beautiful. The day of our wedding she was extremely organized with getting as many photos in as possible. Another big bonus was how quiet and almost not present she was during very important moments, eg. ceremony and speeches. I look back at photos and don’t even remember them being taken. I would 100% recommend her to anyone. One of my best friends is getting married this year and was fortunate enough to be able to book her in as well. Super excited to see more fabulous photos from her. Thank you again Maigan!"
"Maigan, Matt and I can't even begin to say how thankful we are for these images: they are absolutely stunning! We have relived our day over probably about 3 or 4 times now, and every time is just as sweet as the first. The pictures are absolutely beautiful. You were amazing and it really shows in the photos. You were incredibly organized and helped us go through our day on schedule. The weather didn't exactly cooperate, but we trusted you and man did that ever pay off! We were getting a bit tired at the end, so thank you for bearing with us and getting us to smile and keep going. I was surprised at how many pictures of the reception you both got and of people, as I thought you wouldn't have much time for it, but you seem to make the most out of every opportunity and we love the results. It is hard to choose which pictures are our favourites, as there are so many! The candid shots are definite favourites though: we love that you caught those inbetween memories for us. Maigan, thank you so much for being our photographer. We are very happy with our choice, and are so thrilled that you captured our day so perfectly. So basically, thank you so much Maigan. It really was an amazing day for us, and we are so ecstatic about the pictures."
"I worked with Maigan about 10 years ago and had seen some of her early work through social media. Even when she was just starting out her photographs were stunning. I knew I wanted her to be my wedding photographer, and when the time came I actually booked my wedding date around her availability! Not only is her work beautiful, Maigan is great to work with. She is professional, punctual , organized and has tons of great ideas. Her warm and outgoing personality make being photographed easy even for those of us who are awkward in front of a camera. One of the things I was most stressed about was keeping everything on track with the wedding day timeline, however I did not even have to think about that as Maigan had it all under control which allowed me to just enjoy the day! Between Maigan's friendly personality, genuine passion, creative eye for photography and willingness to do whatever it took to get the shot, she was the perfect choice! We can't thank Maigan and her team enough for the beautiful photos we have to look back on for years to come! I always recommend Maigan Cowen Photography to newly engaged couples!"
"It was such a pleasure working with Maigan and Brad they captured our day perfectly! It is truly difficult to decide which was the best part of our experience with this amazing team! Brad was high energy when working with the guys and captured some excellent candid shots before the wedding! He was easy going and just went with the flow! Not everyone could work with this crazy bunch of guys! He made sure our groomsmen of all ages were included and had a blast! Maigan is very patient and organized and had a great approach with working with the girls during the pre-wedding shots! Maigan has a great eye for detail and made sure that all of the special moments were caught! Maigan and Brad were an incredible team, and we had an excellent time for the formal shots (and we're pretty sure they are the only photographers we know that would wear heavy duty winter boots and jump in snowbanks to make sure that they captured the best angles and lighting for us!) We Appreciated Maigan's honesty and letting us know that even though there were photos we wanted they may not turn how we wanted due to lighting! Not everyone would be so honest! We respect her level of professionalism, preparedness and all of the contact that she maintained before and after our wedding! She was very prompt in getting photos to us, and with answering (many!) emails with questions and concerns! We had a blast during our engagement shoot and would undoubtedly recommend Maigan Cowen Photography to anyone, anytime!!! A sincere thanks to both Maigan and Brad for helping capture our engagement and wedding day!"
"Once again, thank you Maigan Cowen Photography for doing such an AMAZING job capturing our wedding day. We have just finished looking through all the pictures, and I cannot express how happy we are with all of them! I honestly cannot pick a favourite, or even favourite 10, I love them all! You are so professional and helpful and obviously so talented. We cannot wait to show the pictures to our family and friends! Again, thank you so much!!! I'm going to go look at the pictures again."
"After weeks of searching for the perfect photographer for our wedding, we found Maigan Cowen Photography and knew it was the best fit. Of course Maigan takes beautiful photographs, but she also brings so much more to the process. She made us both feel comfortable in front of the camera during our engagement session and on our wedding day-- it never felt awkward or staged. She would capture the small moments that we had together in their raw form, and kept them genuine by not over editing the images to look like something they weren't. A couple weeks before the wedding, Maigan came out to go through our venue and scout locations for the perfect pictures. This relieved so much stress of finding the perfect areas for each photograph on the actual wedding day. Maigan was not only our photographer, but also partly our wedding coordinator as she kept our whole day on schedule. She invested her time and energy to make sure our wedding day was the perfect day that it was. Everyone who looks at our photos comment on how amazing they are, and that is all thank to Maigan Cowen Photography. We recommend her to everyone we know getting married - we promise you won't be dissappointed!"
"Maigan and I met years ago through a mutual friend, and I have been following her work since she became a wedding photographer. I always knew I wanted her to capture my wedding day, so as soon as Marco and I were engaged, we booked her. From the minute we chose a day to our first meeting, we were always at ease with Maigan's approach, professionalism and organization. After we chose and toured our sites, Maigan sent us a detailed timeline of what the day would look like and what she would need from us to make the day run smoothly. I love organization! We even had a special request for some photos at a family business, and although we had a tight timeline, Maigan was accommodating to fit it in. She took care of so many details that I never would have thought of. When our big day came, Maigan and Wes were around to catch all of the details and candids that we missed, and were super fun while driving us from site to site. We are usually awkward in front of a camera, only having a couple nice photos in 4 years together, but Maigan and Wes made us feel incredibly comfortable and we even forgot they were there sometimes. We realized their dedication when Wes climbed a tree and Maigan got down in the dirt just to get the perfect shot. The day ran so smoothly, and the final product was exactly what we'd imagined, our vision in photographs. We are so pleased we chose Maigan Cowen Photography for our wedding day, and we hope to work with them again in the future."
As we were looking for a photographer for our upcoming wedding, we asked around for recommendations. A friend had all good things to say about Maigan and her work - so we checked her out. Instantly we were attracted to her passion and knowledge for photography, her fun personality, and her way of making us feel comfortable. We knew we could trust her in capturing our day. We were blown away when we received our final product - both for our engagement and wedding pictures. We can't thank Maigan enough for the memories she gave us-forever grateful!"
"Working with Maigan Cowen Photography was a fantastic experience! Maigan was easy going, very organized and enthusiastic. Her attention to detail made the quality of our wedding pictures outstanding. Sometimes photographers can easily distract from the moment - but Maigan was able to be there to capture every moment without taking away from the intimacy of the experience. I was very pleased with the variety of pictures we received and how quickly we received them. The end product package was beyond our expectations - it was perfect! It was amazing to be able to walk through our day again through her pictures as she was able to capture almost every moment - it was like reliving the experience! Thank you Maigan Cowen Photography - you made our day enjoyable and captured some everlasting memories."
