Maggie Marguerite


About the studio →


Hello! We're a team of photographers based in New York and the hudson valley, headed by Georgi Richardson. Georgi has been an event and advertising photographer for twenty years and runs the Maggie marguerite office, as well as shooting a number of the studio's jobs.

"Maggie" was georgi's cockney Granny and "Marguerite" is her middle name. It's a made-up name but one based on her family... A large part of the studio's focus has always been on "family", so she thought it was appropriate! WE'RE A TEAM OF VETERAN SHOOTERS AND EDITORS - WITH YEARS OF EVENT, EDITORIAL AND ADVERTISING PHOTOGRAPHY, CINEMATOGRAPHY AND EDITING EXPERIENCE BEHIND US.

We like to make bright, bold imagery of people erupting into laughter, ecstatic dancing, food that looks ready-to-devour, rooms bursting with atmosphere! We are experts at capturing human joy and energy in imagery, where moments feel “real” and “ring true".

All of us bring something personal to the way we shoot, but what unites our work is our focus on creating spontaneous, vibrant imagery where people’s true expressions are captured as they enjoy the moment, where decor pops and atmosphere is captured - where a captivating story is told.

Our team is experienced yet easy-going. We bring good vibes, a sense of humour and efficiency to every shoot.

Our work has been featured in the prestigious New York Magazine Weddings' "Best Of" list since 2010, and has appeared in The New York Times, Good Morning America, The Knot, Snippet & Ink, Brooklyn Bride, Brides UK, Zagat, Food and Wine, Carats and Cake and H & H Weddings amongst many others.


Erica →

Georgi's originally from Hong Kong and is a graduate of Parsons School of Design (in Paris and New York).  She has been an event, editorial and advertising photographer for 20 years. She has two kids with her husband William. Her favourite quote about life is one by the playwright August Wilson; "All you need in the world is love and laughter. That's all anybody needs. To have love in one hand and laughter in the other." Laughing is at the core of everything Georgi loves and does.

Her first professional position was managing the studio of an acclaimed Vanity Fair/Vogue/Town & Country socialite and celebrity photographer. She cut her teeth at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party and assisting on exotic, high-profile Vogue shoots.

Georgi has shot events everywhere from Rajasthan to Cuernavaca to Aspen. Her clients include British Vogue, MTV, The Intercontinental, Warner Bros Music, chef Charlie Palmer and Hong Kong Land.


Sasha →

Erica, a native New Yorker and mother of three, is a veteran shooter with years of event and portrait photography experience. To date, she has photographed approximately 450 weddings and been a lead photographer at the studio for over eight years.

She brings boundless energy and positivity to all her shoots. She delivers a balance of candid and posed shots to clients, offering some direction at appropriate moments (mainly during periods where portraits are being taken, but occasionally during the event itself too) as well as creating a large number of documentary imagery throughout the event. 

Her images are dramatic, spontaneous and joyous! 


Ryan →

Sasha is originally from Russia and came to the States to pursue a career in fashion photography. Her work has been featured in Vogue and Martha Stewart Weddings and she has been a lead shooter at the studio for close to seven years. Recently she gave birth to her first child!

Sasha is warm, patient and much loved by our clients! She brings a generosity of spirit to any event she is working at and this shows in her imagery - people want to smile when Sasha is taking their picture.

With her background in fashion photography, she is adept at offering direction to clients whenever necessary and is also comfortable shooting candid imagery throughout the event.


Annabel →

Ryan is a highly experienced advertising and event photographer with great technical skill and expertise. He is a specialist in camera and lighting equipment. He can shoot anything and anyone - anywhere!

A father of two, he has a calm, thoughtful and positive presence and brings empathy and creativity to his work. People are relaxed and reassured around him, and love his pictures!


Rutvik →

Annabel is originally from California but divides her time between Seattle, LA and New York. She is a graduate of parsons and alongside events, shoots assignments for The New York Times Magazine, The Guardian, The Wall Street Journal, and Money Magazine. She has exhibited her work across the US and also teaches photography. 


Melisa →

Rutvik's focus, sensitivity and empathy shine in his work as a photographer. Based in new york, Rutvik shoots events as well as portraiture, food and advertising for the studio. Everybody adores Rutivk's charm, kindness and sense of humour!


Back to Georgi →

An extraordinarily creative event and advertising photographer, melisa creates timeless and elegant imagery.

She is a very experienced photographer who brings a high-level of technical expertise, and creative vision, to her shoots.
