PULL OUT AND GIGGLES

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!

THE MAEWOOD CREW

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.

pennsylvania wedding photographer


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!

wedding day best friend

When is the last time you fell in love with a vendor? The energy, confidence, and professionalism are unmatched by anything I have ever seen. MaeWood blew us away with their ability to adapt to weather, venue, and wardrobe issues & deliver images that far exceeded expectations. 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. Everything was delivered early, everything exceeded expectation, and we had ZERO issues. 

Adam + Jenelle

When we first started looking for a photographer and videographer for our wedding, I had an idea of what I wanted. Jes and Michael were everything I wanted and more. From the first time meeting them on zoom, I knew they were the perfect fit for us. They both made me feel so at ease about every step of our wedding day. From the start of wedding planning, my husband and I knew we wanted bridal portraits in Sedona after the wedding. Jes and Michael hiked up at 4am with us in the dark so we could have the most epic Sedona photos. We are so grateful to have found Jes and Michael. They are truly the best and go above and beyond. We loved them so much we use them any time we need photo or video done. Truly the best.

sara + David

My fiancé booked Maewood Collective for our proposal and within the first few minutes of working with Jes and Michael, we knew we had to have this team for our wedding! 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. They don’t just capture the moment, they capture the emotions behind it all making it that much more memorable. They take pride in their work, and always deliver high-quality videos and photos. I could go on and on…This is a team you can rely on and trust and that’s rare to find.

"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.

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.

"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!"

kind words from

"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 GENERALquestions

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 get along with other vendors outside of your team?

Do you know us? We weren't always a team and have had many years of experience working with other vendors that we fell in love with so hard we asked them to join our team! Our job to give you an amazing experience, and that can't happen if we are bickering with vendors. With that being said, you are our main priority, so we will always do what is right for our couples first and foster vendor relationships second.





Do you offer any payment options?

After your retainer fee is paid, we break up the remaining investment into monthly payments. Let us know if there is a better day to have those payments taken out each month until the month before your wedding.


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! 


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 book with The Collective?

We recommend booking all of our services at least a year out, if not more! Photography, Videography, and Coordination are all key vendors on your wedding day and you want to hold your date early to ensure the vendors you love are available!

Do we get to meet you before our wedding?

1,000% yes! We meet during your consultation call, your engagement session, and your final check-in meeting! If you have full-service coordination, we will also see you for your venue walk thru and rehearsal! 

Do we need to feed you?

Yes, please! Our contract asks that each team member working your wedding day gets a hot vendor meal, and if possible, can one of them be gluten free? We know it seems like a lot and most jobs don't offer dinner when you work an 8 hour shift. We get it, but often times there is no where to put our own food but in the hot car and because we always under promise and over deliver, our shifts are closer to 10 or 11 hours. This is an industry standard and we greatly appreciate it.  

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.

Is there sales tax on your services?

Sales and use tax is required in certain states. Because our business is legally based in Arizona, a 9.2% sales tax is applicable to Arizona weddings. Weddings outside of Arizona do not require sales tax.








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 book Full-Service Coordination?

Yes! 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. With that being said, we HIGHLY RECOMMEND having a full service coordinator outside of your venue, Our coordinator ensures your contracts all look good, help with travel/transportation logistics, facilitates set up and each even throughout the day, creates a one timeline for all your vendors, collects your personal belongings at the end of the night and so much more!
