About Rife Ponce Photography

Maggie Rife Ponce is a storytelling wedding, portrait, and travel photographer, looking to capture magical moments in time–like bottling lightning bugs in a jar.  Her subjects range from the father of the bride, to indigenous natives on the other side of the World. Whatever she is photographing, her sensitive nature and desire to understand her subjects lead to still frames eternalizing the simple human exchanges and emotions of everyday life. You can see current work on her blog.

    My husband Todd and I knew we wanted a fantastic photographer for our October 2014 wedding and immediately begin to ask our friends for recommendations. We knew Maggie through mutual friends as she had been their wedding photographer as well.

    Our initial meeting with Maggie was wonderful. She is the kindest, sweetest, well-thought out and most creative person we worked with throughout our entire wedding process. I knew planning a wedding was going to be stressful, but I never once worried about our wedding photographer. She was responsive and thorough the entire time.

    Maggie was so impressive on our wedding day. She has such a calming energy and makes capturing pictures so effortless and fun. She is such a gifted photographer and we will be forever grateful for that.

    She was fantastic gathering pictures on our wedding day with tight time frames, especially with the large family shots and the little children. Everyone was complimentary on how she handled everything with such poise & confidence!

    Everyone was so impressed with our wedding photography! We still get so many compliments on our wedding photos AND engagement photos to this day. I would also like to add we got married on such a cold and rainy day in October and you would never know with how the pictures turned out!

    Maggie is creative beyond her years and is such a pleasure to work with. Her prices are fair and competitive with the market and I would recommend her to anyone looking to capture their engagement and wedding photos.

    Maggie Rife Photography is beyond excellent. We recently got married and used Maggie for our Engagement Pictures and our Wedding Pictures.

    She is a photographer with an eye for the moments that you want captured forever. From your first meeting with Maggie until the minute the photos arrive so carefully packaged with her own unique touch, you won't be disappointed.

    She is affordable and willing to go the extra mile, even with her own busy schedule.

    She is easy to work with and makes you comfortable throughout the entire shoot. Our photos are so unique and she truly loves what she does and it shows. We couldn't have asked for a better photographer.

    Maggie is a really fantastic photographer who has all the qualities a bride would want. She's very talented and very easy to work with. She was incredibly responsive and always listened to our ideas and feedback; she even came up with great solutions to things that we thought were going to be problems. We ended up having to rent some buses to move us to a second location because the reception site put scaffolding up all over the front right before the wedding. I thought the pictures were going to suffer as a result of losing that location, however, Maggie took awesome pictures on the bus, which I wasn't expecting at all. They turned out really fun and romantic, which I never would have expected from a CTA-style bus! Beyond her talent and responsiveness, we really appreciated that Maggie took some time to get to know us. We met her at her studio and just talked about her background, our backgrounds, and her ideas. She listened attentively and I felt like we had a new friend in addition to a photographer, which was very valuable to my husband and I. I would recommend Maggie to anyone who is looking for really classically beautiful pictures from a very talented photographer with a great personality and very reasonable fees--she's the total package and we'll definitely use her again.

    Outstanding (!) photography from Maggie Rife Photography. If you're looking for a truly creative artist, and a great person to document your wedding day, I would highly recommend Maggie for your wedding photography.

    Maggie is as talented as she is kind. An amazing photographer who sees interesting light and emotional moments where other photographers would miss them. She has served as a second photographer for me. I highly recommend her.
