Maewood Couples Are

You believe in heirlooms and the quality of an unparalleled experience. You are willing to invest in the finer things. You appreciate a classic style and a little blush for your wedding day but don't mind throwing on a pair of torn jeans and a tank to get the job done. You care more about celebrating your love and capturing the moments than the stress of planning the perfect day. You are confident, passionate & so in love you can't keep your hands off each other. You laugh more often than not and you are always down for a new adventure as long as it is together. You each stand alone but also perfectly compliment each other. You are loyal to your family and friends, but most importantly to your hearts. Oh, and... you love hugs!

A desert girl with a heart that will always partially reside in Maryland. I am stoked that you landed on this tiny space of the world wide web, and I hope that you stick around a bit! Since you stopped on in to get to know us, I will hop right to it. I am a mamma, wife, and story teller with a general obsession for puppies and food. I started this journey of photography looking through old photo albums with my grandmother and playing with the hundreds of disposable cameras we had. Even though it has always been a passion of mine, photography wasn't my first career. With a background in education, I come to every wedding day with a teacher's heart, compassion, patience, guidance, education, management, love, HUGS & fun (plus the occasional ninja move, of course)!

I’m Meg, a small-town gal with big time dreams! I’m so excited that you came to my little corner of the inter-web and hope you hang around to check out all the fun things MWP has to offer! But since you’re here to get to know me, I’ll get to it! I am a wife, fur-mom to five crazy critters, and Super Aunt Extraordinaire! I am a huge fan of spontaneous bear hugs, random acts of kindness, communicating via movie quotes & gifs, and all things mint green. I’ve always had a love of photography (something I picked up from my mama, whose camera is basically an additional limb), but I didn’t start to actually learn about the art until my cousin, Kristi (of Shoptini.com), asked me to snap a few pics of her for the fashion and style blog she was launching in 2015. Balancing a full-time teaching career and co-owning MWP with my bff soulmate, J, has its challenges, for sure, but I truly believe my experience as an educator has allowed me to approach photography from a different perspective: one that appreciates beauty in all its forms, values community over competition, and focuses on capturing the genuine emotion of all of life’s little moments.

A manly man who never says no to lotion or coming along on a session to either help out or capture your story. He has his PhD in business management and yet somehow we are lucky enough to have him join our team as our videographer! He loves metal music, cacti, and black coffee, and he always has a way with making the guys laugh like Meg and Jes just can't!

Hiiiieeeeeee! I’m Jess (with two S’s a.k.a. other Jess a.k.a. SHE-guyver) and I’m the Director of Coordination for The Maewood Collective. I’m a Texas born pelirroja with just as much fire in my spirit for making your wedding weekend as memorable as my own. I’m a momma and wife to two rambunctious kiddos and my military man which means I’m adept at handling just about anything on the fly (you’ll love my wild stories). You could say Murphy, of Murphy's Law, and I are besties. I love all things sushi, red wine, good vibes and fun times. You can often catch me lounging in the sun with my latest good-read dog-eared nearby and I’ve been known to hit the dance floor at all our events! Being an Ennegram 7, I’ve always loved to have a good time so event coordination never feels like work to me but it’s my goal to work extra hard on your special day so that you and your nearest and dearest can relax and celebrate!

After your wedding day has come to a close, you will receive an online gallery and/or a gallery of your videos with every moment of your wedding memories, and some you may have even missed! HUNDREDS and HUNDREDS of photographs! Not only did you get to live and love during your wedding day, without stressing about missing any special moments, but then you get to relive them for the rest of your journey together, and share them with generations to come. Most of our MWC Couples like to sit down and snuggle up the night that their gallery goes live and enjoy reliving their wedding day through each of their carefully captured and unique images along side their magical video! Your gallery will be downloadable and shareable for family and friends. You can order additional fine art prints through your online gallery. You will receive your wedding video links, as well as a crystal USB inside an embossed linen box.

"[They] made our day an absolute dream..."

"WHEN IS THE LAST TIME YOU FELL IN LOVE WITH A VENDOR?..."

When is the last time you fell in love with a vendor? From the first interview we had with Jes & Meg, we knew that we had found our photographers. Their energy, confidence, and professionalism are unmatched by anything I have ever seen. They blew us away with their ability to adapt to weather, venue, and wardrobe issues & deliver images that far exceeded expectation. They double as wedding coordinators helping make sure that we weren't forgetting things that could detract from our big day. Then, the big day arrived. Jes and Meg made everything SO(!) FUN(!) - the stress of the day melted away and everyone had a great time. With regard to delivery, timeliness, and issues.. everything came early, everything exceeded expectation, and we had ZERO issues. 

adam and Jenelle

kind words from

"I CAN'T EVEN PUT TOGETHER WORDS AT THE MOMENT...THIS JUST MEANS THE WORLD TO OUR FAMILY..."

Words like thoughtful, exceedingly talented, creative, endearing, passionate, sensitive, meticulously organized, charming, compassionate, brilliant and gifted all seem to fall just a bit short when it comes to Jes. From the first moment we spoke on the phone I knew I found someone very special and gifted. To this day, I think Jes was put in our path as a reward for some of the chaos and trying times we found ourselves in along the way. It's so rare to find a person that is so naturally selfless and has such a beautiful heart.

kind words from

"WE ARE IN ABSOLUTE AWE!..."

We had the best day of our lives and are happy that Jes and Meg were able to capture it! We finally had a chance to sit down and go through the entire gallery together and we are in absolute awe!!!!! We absolutely LOVE the pictures!! Not only were they able to capture us but they got the Best shots of our puppy, Lui!! They did such an amazing job and we have gotten nothing but complements with the pictures from the blog!"

"I CAN'T IMAGINE HAVING ANY OTHER PHOTOGRAPHERS!"

"We cannot say enough about Jes and Meg. From the moment they signed on, they not only made planning a breeze (super organized) but made the entire experience fun and a dream. They were extremely professional, accommodating and super fun - oh and they are also super talented. Photos were the most important part of our wedding and I can't imagine having any other photographers there. They captured our vision exactly and I am happy to call them my friends. We will definitely be using them for photos in the future. 5++++++ stars."

frequently asked questions

Can I just get digitals and no album?

We know we live in a digital world, but your boudoir photographs are art. We honestly see them as something totally different than a beautiful portrait. They require an experience that can only be provided by fine art prints and albums, keepsakes for you and/or your partner. With your album or a la carte orders, you will also receive your corresponding digital images on a crystal usb! The plus side is, you get all of your digital images on a crystal USB, in addition to your album! 




Do we really need photography and videography?

We believe whole-heartedly the answer is yes. Photos and videos play two very different roles in capturing your wedding day. As photographers, we are your second set of eyes, capturing everything as quickly and efficiently as possible. Growing your gallery with your friends, family, love, and portraits. It allows you remember all the special moments and witness ones you may not have seen with your own two eyes. A video however, is a curated live experience that allows you to relive the emotion, hear the words, and just about feel the butterflies floating around in your stomach! 



Do you offer any payment options?

After your retainer fee is paid, we break up the remaining investment into monthly payments until your session! 


If we have all three services, will we receive one contact person and contract?

The best part about the MaeWood Collective is that we work together to create an amazing experience outlined on ONE CONTRACT. ONE TIMELINE. ONE PLACE!

When it comes down to the communicating, you will have contact with each expert on our team individually! We are here to enhance every experience on your wedding day. But to keep everything simple, you will have one portal where all of you communication with our team can be kept in one place! 


What is the difference between a wedding coordinator and wedding planner?

This question can be tricky for some and the answer might be different for each company you inquire with. At The MWC it means we leave the initial planning, final decisions and details up to our couple but execute them on your behalf. We want you to be able to relax and partake in all the plans you've made while being confident your vision is coming to life around you!


What’s the difference between a venue coordinator and a wedding day coordinator?

The short answer, the venue coordinator is our “left hand person” and best point of contact for all things wedding weekend. It truly takes a village and they are an integral part of the vendor team! They understand the ins and outs of their venue best and often share some of the property’s best features, tips, and tricks with us! But, it is your Day of Coordinator who will know your wedding best! Your DOC will know that granny should be served dinner first after the couple, when and how many flowers should arrive on site, that the DJ shouldn't forget to play your favorite throwback, and things like the Father of the Bride planning a special surprise! Essentially, we run your wedding the way you would run it, if you weren't busy having the time of your life!



What are the benefits of having you as my wedding coordinator? What sets you apart?

We’re sure you’ve heard the saying “Jack of all trades, master of none”. But, have you heard the rest of that saying? It goes like this - “A Jack of all trades is master of none, but ofttimes better than a master of one.” That is exactly what you’re getting when you choose The MWC team and our coordination services. As a former educator, stay at home mom, military wife, and the daughter of an oilfield man I’ve moved around often, experienced many things, and held many jobs so I wear the Jane of many trades crown very proudly and have learned to coexist with the infamous “Murphey” quite well! Oh, and did I mention how much I like to have fun? You’ll get everything mentioned, a luxury experience, AND have a blast with us!


What forms of payment do you accept?

We accept cash, check, PayPal, Zelle, and all major credit cards! Your invoice allows you to set up automated credit card payments for your convenience! 





I don’t need all of the coordination services offered, can I customize them?

It is SO important to us that your day/weekend exudes the energy and personalities of our couples. While our package pricing is set and designed to maximize the likelihood of that, we are open to making adjustments when and where we can. Want to go above and beyond? Send us an inquiry! 


How much communication will we have?

Unlimited communication! Well, almost unlimited! Our number one priority is to be there for you during crunch time. We want to make any bumps in the road feel lighter and make your smiles and giggles much brighter! But seriously, texts and emails with appropriate allowance for receipt and response time are always welcome!


How early / when should I hire a wedding day coordinator?

We added coordination services because we truly believe they make all the difference when executing events. Just realizing you want a DOC? We can add coordination services up until 30 days prior to your wedding, depending on the availability of our coordination team, so snag ‘em early!

Can we pick our own wedding video music?

One of Michael's specialties is choosing music for your video! It allows for his creativity to flow and the opportunity to match music to your wedding day rather than try to make your video fit into a particular song that we don't have the license to! If you have a special request, we will certainly make it happen for you, but as a general practice, we provide music with a license that embodies the emotions you feel on your own wedding day! 

Will I own the images I get in my gallery?

MaeWood will own the rights to the images so that we can use them for advertising, marketing, and our website, unless you put in a special request! You will receive a print release that allows you to print your images anywhere you'd like. You also have the easy option of ordering prints and albums directly from your gallery link.



Do you shoot engagement sessions on the weekends?

We typically only shoot portrait sessions on weekdays so we can dedicate our time and energy to our couples on their wedding days! We are happy to make weekend accommodations, if we are available. 



How many weddings does The MaeWood Collective cover in a weekend?

We only schedule one wedding a weekend for each service. This is important to us and our couples so that we can serve you from a place of peace, with a refreshed mind and body!


Do you offer multiple service discounts?

Yes! We love working together SO MUCH and feel that we can serve you better as a collective, so we offer courtesies to our couples that book more than one service! 


Does the entire MaeWood Collective Team always work together?

We try to work together as often as humanly possible! Meg and Jes love to book weddings together so that you have both visionaries on your wedding day, but sometimes it just isn't possible for us to both be available from across the country. We do, however, work with some of the most amazing second shooters in the business, and we will take care of you regardless! We also support each other as a team, and you may see us in different roles on your wedding day! 


Do you offer payment plans?
We sure do! You can see all frequently asked questions about payment options and financials on the investment page of the services you are looking for.


How many weddings a year do you book?

We typically book 12 weddings a year, per service! This allows us to dedicate time to our couples and provide them support through planning and preparing for their wedding day! 


Do couples receive support with planning, even if we don't schedule with the Day-of-Coordinator?

Yes! Even though we HIGHLY RECOMMEND having Day-Of-Coordination, every couple receives a beautiful, printed magazine, that has all the information we have learned over the years! This magazine will guide you in preparing and planning for your wedding day events, videography, and or photography! We will also connect with all of your vendors before hand to make sure we are on the same page.
