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.

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!
and in the midst of it all… I want to capture the beauty of your location. Because where you are is part of your story!

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. 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!
What about video? In the fall of 2019 MAJECK debuted our Wedding Video options and 2020 brides have access to awesome introductory rates! Send me an email to learn more about wedding photography and videography packages!
So, how does this work?
Ideally, you fill out the contact form or shoot me an email. That let’s me know you are interested and we start a conversation. You will probably get a pretty detailed email from me. I’m a bit chatty, but 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. If everything sounds good, we take care of the “business” side and you booked your wedding photographer!
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 your 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! 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!
My base pricing can be found by viewing my PricingSheet, but let’s talk about your needs! I am always happy to create a wedding photography package specific to the couple’s needs.
What about Travel?
I do not charge travel for Florida, Colorado or Texas… Why? Because I’m a adventurer and like to wander back to my loved ones for a bit! Working in these states allows me that opportunity and I love it!
Going somewhere else? I’m down for any adventure and destination! 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.
“Mary Elizabeth did the best for us on our special day. I have lots of pictures and you made it so easy for us to be ourselves around you. We now have a photographer friend for all our milestones we want to capture.” – C – Nov. 2019 bride
What about after we book?
I’m not going to forget about you. I will be touching base a few times before your wedding, from scheduling your engagement session to chatting about your ideas and goals for your portraits to checking in about a week before the big day and finalizing all of the moving pieces. 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. This is all to ensure that beautiful art is created. Art that you will cherish for the rest of their lives together.
Do you also do video?
Yes! Starting in the fall of 2019 we expanded to include wedding videos and highlight videos. These packages are quoted based on the total number of hours an event is going to last and what each couple is looking for. So, let me know if you are interested in learning more about a bundled wedding photography and videography package for your big day!

Embrace the Beauty of Motherhood
I have a confession, I didn’t have maternity portraits until I was pregnant with our third child. I look at the ones that I did have and see all of the beauty and excitement moving within my family as little miss Claire was growing within me. It was the first pregnancy I had experienced where I felt beautiful – even though it was also my most difficult. 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.
My sessions include Gowns!
I include maternity gowns (and I have a lot of them) 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.
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)!
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.
When I was a girl, I fell in love with Braveheart… Not the movie but the secret, middle of the night elopement. The simplicity and beauty of vowing to love one another without the fan fare spoke to my heart. Maybe someday I will be able to capture a beautiful elopement in the Highlands of …
This Mother’s Day a Mommy and Me Portrait Session is the perfect way to celebrate Motherhood. Even before I took portraits professionally, I took a lot of pictures of my children. I also insisted on having portrait sessions at least once a year. I put the images into albums and frames as well as storing …
March has been a long month and it looks like April may get longer. I’m sitting here in lounge pants (because who needs to be fancy when you can’t leave your house except for a random walk) and missing documenting all of the moments in my client’s love stories during these strange times. I first …
