MAJECK – Photographer – Storyteller

A Photographer and storyteller based in Colorado who travels the world with love, laughter and her camera … bringing her family along for the adventure.

Your story is magic… It should be told.

Are you ready to create magic? The reality is, it’s already there… You just need a photographer to capture it, document the magic that flows between you.  That’s the goal of MAJECK Photography (pronounced – magic), to take my camera and capture the magic of the moment and the story for couples, families, individuals and businesses. Most likely, you are searching for a photographer to capture some special moment in your family’s life. I love the moments – big and little – and invite you to reach out to me with any questions you may have!

I want to be your photographer for the moment, and then see your love story unfold.

From “Will You” to “I Do” to “It’s a Girl” and every moment after, you can trust MAJECK to deliver your images with a smile and the understanding that this is your story and our privilege to document it. Whether it is a family session to a surprise proposal or wedding, I look for the story and invest in it. My goal is to create art that you can not only hang on your walls but connect to on a daily basis. Because you cherish those things that you emotionally connect with.

Moments like..

  • The groom’s eyes glistening as the love of his life walks towards him.
  • A little girl holding onto her grandma with her little hand.
  • A father sharing a quiet moment of learning and love with his children.
  • A mother playing and laughing with her child in the field.

How do we #createMAJECK? By connecting with clients. Images are emotional. That’s why I work to establish that connection. Because I want to give clients the best possible experience and a little magic!

Wedding

Planning a Wedding?

Congratulations! I want to be your wedding photographer! (too forward?) But, if you landed here you are probably looking for the person to take your wedding portraits. This individual will be trusted to create beautiful art documenting your “I Do’s”. From intimate weddings to elaborate, large affairs, I am here to document your wedding day. I want my camera to be the one that helps create the album you will look at for the rest of your lives.

I’m a Storyteller and Wedding Photographer

I love photographing weddings because they are such a big part of love stories. At my heart, I’m a story teller and I want to capture authentic images of moments that tell your story. As a wedding photographer, I am someone who looks for the moments within the wedding that make it unique… special. Every wedding has the main story – the couple – and dozens of little stories that twenty years from now that couple will cherish… How do I know? I still love looking back on photos from my wedding day and the portraits from my parents wedding. I look over the album and laugh at the antics of the guests, smile at the memory of our first dance and am so thankful to have these wedding portraits. It is important to me to give that to each couple I work with!

“Mary Elizabeth is the absolute best. She was such a pleasure to work with and was more than helpful and flexible as we had to reschedule our ceremony for COVID multiple times which was out of state for her. Our wedding day ended up being in the middle of a hurricane and she kept our spirits up and made everything work perfectly even with the less than ideal weather. Our pictures when compared to other wedding photos of friends are incomparable she is leagues above the rest! Book MAJECK for your wedding you will not be disappointed!!!” – July 2020 Bride

Video

What about video? When photography is not enough for your wedding day – MAJECK offers Video options! Our team has theater trained videographers working to create a highlight video for you to love for years to come! These packages are quoted based on the total number of hours an event is going to last and what each couple is looking for. Reach out today for a custom quote for a bundled wedding photography and videography package for your wedding day!

So, how does this work?

Ideally, you fill out the contact form below or shoot me an email. Make sure to be as detailed as possible and I’ll be sending over pricing and extra information that you may need. I know that as your wedding photographer, I’m going to be spending a lot of time with you on a very important day. Therefore, I like to talk over the phone or a cup of coffee (which I love) and get to know you and your relationship a bit. I can’t wait to hear about your wedding day plans and your love story up to this point! From there, I will be able to help you select a package that provides you the coverage you need.

Speaking of business… what kind of an investment is a Wedding Photographer?

Weddings can be expensive, but finding someone who can capture your memories and leave you feeling at ease is important and an investment! I include quite a few perks in this investment in your wedding photography to ensure that you walk away with beautiful images AND something to hang on your wall. Why? Because it took my husband and I TEN years to finally get that album printed! And… As a little girl, I loved pouring over my parent’s wedding album and so I offer services to help my clients get there’s quickly!

Investments start at $1600 and my base packages can be found by checking out my Wedding Collections!

What about Travel?

Beach Destination Wedding

I love to travel and offer US and International packages that include everything you will need to capture your wedding day beautifully! When you fill out the form below I’ll get a quote turned around to you that includes those considerations! Because you shouldn’t be surprised by the final price of your photographer, I’m always totally upfront with pricing.

What about after we book?

I’m not going to forget about you. Each MAJECK couple receives a welcome guide to help with their planning .I will also be touching base a few times before the big day, scheduling your engagement session and chatting about your ideas and goals for your portraits. I’m there to help with the details and pride myself in knowing your wedding day plans. Scoping locations, researching when sunset will be, having extra bobby pins – I’m your girl. Because when you book with MAJECK, you are booking a professional who has a desire to create beautiful images for YOU at heart.  You can trust that I will pay attention to the details of your big day – while you are enjoying it. This is all to ensure that beautiful art is created. Art that you will cherish for the rest of their lives together.

Maternity & Newborn Portraits

Embrace the Beauty of New Life

This is a time to be celebrated! My experience of preparing for and bringing a new baby (or babies) home has always been new and different with every child. I love capturing these maternity portraits and then meeting a family’s newest addition!

“I have no doubt that the simple act of getting dressed up and putting makeup on and then seeing me in the way my husband saw me daily is what got me there.” – a new mom

My sessions include Gowns!

I include maternity gowns (and have so many to choose from) to help moms remove the stress of “what do I wear?”, but also because these dresses are designed to accentuate this moment in your life with beauty and grace. These quality gowns are available for every season and come in multiple colors so that there is something for everyone. You can view my gowns by joining my VIP on Facebook or by viewing my Client Closet Gallery.

Can my family or partner be included?

Absolutely! I encourage the people who are most important to you to be involved in at least some of your portraits. Capturing the anticipation of siblings and the connection between parents is incredibly special for these sessions! It also gives big siblings a chance to get to know me ahead of a newborn session

I still love my maternity portraits. They are among my most cherished family pictures.

I love them for so many reasons but mostly because of the happiness they reflect. The quiet joy of me carrying our daughter and the constant smiles of my husband and children. If you are in a relationship or if this isn’t your first child – everyone is welcome. Because this baby isn’t just coming to you, it’s coming to your family. What a blessing!

Where can we take Maternity portraits?

That all depends on you – the client – and what you are comfortable with. I have a beautiful studio we can use. We can also take these in the comfort of your home – maybe even featuring that nursery you have been working on! Most moms choose outdoor sessions. Colorado is beautiful and there are so many gorgeous spots for us to access. I’ll help you select a spot when you contact me (the button is at the top)!

 

What is the cost?

I offer several session options for families to include Bump to Baby package savings which include maternity and newborn at a great rate! My Investment Page details base pricing options but we can also customize options to meet needs!

 



Newborn

Colorado Newborn Portraits… Because they are only so small once.

Capturing the beauty and wonder of a family’s newest addition is an honor and a privilege. Sessions can be held at the hospital (Fresh 48), Client’s home (Newborn Lifestyle) or In Studio (meant for more posed portraits). Whatever your family’s style is, I’m capable of capturing this special time for you.

It is an honor to be able to participate in this period of a family’s life. As a mother of three children myself, I am aware of the how fragile a newborn is and my posing is gentle along with my manner. Parents can take all of the time they need to help baby become comfortable. Don’t just take my word for it, read below for what clients are saying.

Mary did so awesome! She was so careful with my sweet baby, she was patient and loving towards him, made the environment as comfortable as possible for him, and took so many photos! She was very personable and great company as well! Thank you Mary for capturing such an important and unforgettable time in both mine and my son’s life.

Lifestyle Newborn Portrait Sessions

These sessions are intimate and not just about baby but the dynamic in your home with a newborn. Parents, Siblings and Grandparents are all encouraged to attend these sessions and freeze this  moment. We take our time and choose spots within your home that capture the feel of your family and the light. Like the big brother adoring his newborn baby brother. Available all along the front range of Colorado!

These are moments you care about. These are the moments you are discovering your baby. Learning about who they are and falling in love a little more every exhausting moment. I get to know my clients ahead of our portrait session because I want to capture what makes your family unique during your newborn pictures. Therefore, you can be comfortable in the knowledge that I am creating images that you will love for years to come.

Posed Newborn Portrait Sessions

There aren’t many things cuter than a tiny baby in a sweet outfit snuggled into a bowl or on a blanket. Tiny outfits, sweet baby bums, their tiny hands and more.

Studio sessions are more focused on baby and capturing all of the sweet features. These are offered in two ways:

  • a studio posed with portrait style images
  • a mixed studio session utilizing my lifestyle space and posed portrait space

All done from the comfort of my Colorado Springs portrait studio. Whichever you choose, you will have so many beautiful images to choose from!

         Fresh 48 Newborn Portraits

What is Fresh 48? These newborn sessions are often done in hospital within the first 48 hours after your little one arrives. This service is offered within the Colorado Springs metro area. Parents love to use these to capture the moments between siblings as they first meet or just to document how very tiny baby was when they entered the world. It is a beautiful moment. Capture it.
