our artistic mission is simple...

In a classroom over ten years ago, Jessica and Megan met and quickly formed a lasting friendship. Their shared love for photography and people led them to establish The MaeWood Collective, where they combine their eclectic skills to capture love stories. Beyond weddings, they also pursue family photography in their local areas, exploring their individual creativity. While they both travel the East Coast and beyond for weddings, Jes is based in Northern Neck Virginia and Meg is local to Southern Pennsylvania.



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)!

They made us feel so comfortable during our shoot, told us what to do when we weren’t sure and Jes was wiping my sweat and fixing my hair to make sure every picture was perfect. Their work speaks for itself, but what really sets Maewood Collective apart is their energy, passion, and love for what they do.

The MaeWood Collective captured every moment of our wedding with such precision and artistry that I'm left speechless. From the intricate details of our décor to the candid laughter shared between family and friends, they didn't miss a beat. Jes and the team's dedication to understanding our vision was evident in every shot. Their ability to blend seamlessly into the background while still capturing the essence of the day was remarkable.

What truly sets them apart is their genuine enthusiasm and passion for their craft. It's evident that they love what they do, and that passion translates into breathtaking photos that we will cherish for a lifetime. They went above and beyond to ensure that every aspect of our wedding was beautifully documented.

Moreover, their professionalism and responsiveness throughout the entire process made working with them an absolute dream. From our initial consultation to the final delivery of our photos, they were communicative, accommodating, and always willing to go the extra mile to ensure our satisfaction...

Jes + Meg went ABOVE AND BEYOND. I truly couldn’t imagine our wedding day without them. They helped move us along the day and made all of us incredibly comfortable. They posed us all perfectly while also grabbing the precious candid moments we all want. They made sure to include all of the good shots while making sure my requests were honored as well.

I must mention the insanely quick turn around for sneak peek photos and the actual albums! Maewood is beyond professional and knowledgeable when directing shoots or capturing your special day, AND the photos are beautiful, capturing exactly what we wanted, and what I didn’t even know I wanted!!

These are all wonderful human beings who have made every interaction fun and without stress. Their knowledge, kind words, and incredible personalities have helped make this experience one of a kind.

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.
