I'm so glad you stopped by! My name is Ronnie Mae- but most people just call me Mae. I'm a 26 year old wedding and couples photographer based in Union, NJ specializing in capturing people's candid moments. I'm a shoes off, let's have the best time together kinda gal. I love my coffee unnecessarily sweet, I listen to music way too loud, and I am so in love my job.
I am so incredibly blessed to have the best little crew in my life. A very crazy toddler, an overly attached puppy, and my forever partner- always by my side even when I need a few minutes to myself- you mamas feel me on this, lol. But in all seriousness, I would never ask for anything different!
I've been in love with photography since the age of 9. It was never one thing about it that made me fall in love. It was all of it. Sometimes I catch myself smiling from seeing the photos I took and how stunning and beautiful my clients look.
This wasn't even my first career choice straight out of high school. Becoming an ASL interpreter was. And even though I LOVE the deaf community, photography pulled me everyday and I just knew I had to take that leap. It was my first love.
I guess it's super cliché to say, but I mean it when I say this little girl really did kick my passion into overdrive. The best memories I’ve ever had with my family are the times when we pull out old albums and shuffle through the pictures one by one, talking about all the things we did and all the places we’ve been to. Laughing and cracking jokes at each other about how weird my siblings and I were as kids- how different things used to be. I really believe this is why I love to be behind the camera. We as people are so different from who we were in the past and photographs are a great way to preserve moments in time. Life is so unbelievably short, and to me, pictures are a way to travel through time to a moment we want- whenever we want.
