goodbye magnoliaWedding photography is Maggie’s passion. The art of capturing a moment forever in time is magical to her, and she’s worked hard to become the best of the best. Week after week, she works with couples as they plan their happily ever afters, but she hasn’t been so lucky in love. Behind the camera, it’s easy to hide from the pain and rejection of her past. The life she has made for herself is safe and predictable, until the owner of a rival photography studio sets up shop in her small town and comes to her with an unexpected proposal. Suddenly, everything she has worked so hard to build is threatened and her simple, controlled life is thrown into chaos. As she travels the state of Michigan photographing weddings, she struggles to keep her business afloat and the wall around her heart intact. But along the way, she learns more about loyalty and love than she ever imagined.

“The story was like a wedding cake – sweet, beautiful, and with many layers.”

“I think what I liked best about this book is it’s utter reality.”

Author note: I wrote this book in the midst of a busy wedding season when I was running my wedding photography business back in 2008. I knew I wanted to write a story about a wedding photographer who hadn’t been so lucky in love, who had gone through heartbreak, and follow her journey to open her heart again.
