Maigan Cowen Photography
I’m a self-taught wedding photographer based in London, Ontario, Canada who left the teaching profession in 2012 and never looked back. I feel very grateful to wake up each day & wear my passion. Over the past few years I have photographed nearly 150 weddings, worked internationally, pushed the limits of my comfort zone on all levels, & met some pretty incredible people along the way. I still consider myself extremely fresh in the industry, and am eager to see the rest of this journey unfold as I develop as an artist.
Although my nostalgic appreciation for photographs can be traced back to a house fire that destroyed nearly all images of my childhood, my path in life was completely changed after getting my first DSLR camera. I was completely hooked by the challenges of the craft and it wasn’t long before I discovered this was my true passion and calling. Life takes you down roads that lead you towards your destiny – you just have to be brave enough to take risks, embrace opportunity and work hard. Recently, I have started teaching photography workshops to aspiring photographers. Currently, I’m focusing on building an international wedding portfolio. This past season I photographed weddings in the Caribbean & Italy. The 2018 has us shooting weddings on location in Jamaica, Sedona, Arizona and the Canadian Rockies. And I just booked a wedding in Nova Scotia for 2019. Eeeek! Is this real life? I am so excited to see where this passion takes us next.
My photography style reflects my spirit, beliefs, interests and how I see the world. My work is a creative mix of photojournalism & portraiture, an equal balance of contemporary & a timeless, romantic style drawing inspiration from my love of nature, fashion & what I view as beautiful. My goal is to capture the story of your wedding day with a focus on quality, beauty, genuine emotion, memorable moments, and of course, LOVE!
My approach with my clients is professional, service-oriented, and fun! I make myself available to assist my brides with all aspects of the planning process from generating timelines, sourcing locations & recommending my favorite vendors. While shooting, I create a comfortable atmosphere by providing lots of direction and use a splash of humor capture photographs that elicit true emotion with a sense of grace and elegance. I work candidly for the most part, but do step in occasionally to ensure images best reflect my clients & business. And that nostalgic appreciation for photographs? I take it with me to each wedding knowing I’m capturing your legacy for you & the generations after you.
So come & join me on this adventure & lets create some magic together.
Thank you so much for stopping by!
Love & Light,
