Real is beautiful
It’s not just a job… it’s a calling
"Maureen Cotton is professional, invisible, and part of the celebration all at the same time. Creative, artistic, fun… she captured each of the special moments! Our daughter and son-in-law’s wedding pictures surpassed our wildest imagination! For Maureen, it’s not just a job… it’s a calling!"
~David Wolfman, Father-of-the-Bride, 2015
I am a photographer and yoga teacher with a keen eye, a big heart, and a calming presence. I create intimate photo documentaries that are authentic, emotional, and creative. In addition to a stunning photo collection, I offer a fun and rewarding experience of being photographed—you'll feel natural and beautiful in front of my lens.
Couples who are entirely, unapologetically true to themselves inspire me. To my mind it's the definition of Beauty, and I create my best work while capturing the essence of a person or relationship.
Weddings are not only about two people in love, but about the community that gathers to celebrate. My wedding photography captures the whole picture; I will show you all the love that surrounds you.
A wedding day in action
I don't have this quirky haircut anymore, but I do bring the same approach and vibe to each wedding!
Weddings are about community
I don't believe your wedding should be the best day of your life, BUT, it is likely the only day your whole community will be in one place. Now that's worth photographing!
