Hello and thanks for stopping by!  I am Maggie Markel, and I provide custom lifestyle & portrait Photography in the DC metropolitan area. I am wife to Mark for over 14 years, and together we have 2 beautiful daughters who are constantly keeping us on our toes and making us laugh. We also added a fur baby, a Maltipoo, Lucy 2 years ago. 


Coffee is life, chocolate is my favorite and also my nemesis, tacos are also life, and Jesus is my Lord & Savior. When I’m not working or spending time with my little family or eating tacos; I love experimenting in the kitchen (shocker, right?), pretending to be a plant lady, or playing decorator since I’m slightly obsessed with HGTV (Fixer Upper, anyone)?


I can't remember a time in my life that I've not enjoyed being behind a camera. But it wasn't until I became a parent that I started to realize how quickly time passes us by. It was then, my love for photography was sparked into a business. My aim is to capture emotion in photos that tells a story. Our lives are full of moments and milestones that are worth remembering through beautiful professional photos. Whether you've just got engaged, started a small business, added a little one to your family or want to update your outdated family photos; it's my privilege to be apart of it as your photographer! 


I can't wait to work with you soon!
