Erin's story was the hardest to tell. I am not going to lie I was so very nervous to photograph her. Although after knowing her for a few minutes I realized she is stronger than I could have ever imagined. She was the one comforting me. Making me smile through the tears I was telling myself the whole day I would not shed.

 I am honored and blessed to share our sixteenth xoBeautiful project reveal.

Erin was photographed at a gorgeous Door County WI Wedding venue. 7501 Mariner Road - One of the most Luxurious Door County Waterfront Homes. A dream location for wedding photographers in Door County Wisconsin.


Erin's Story in her words why she wanted to be involved in the xoBeautiful project:

This photo shoot means the world to me. My fiance and I were together 9 years and actually got engaged today (Jan 28th) two years go on top of a mountain top in Idaho doing our favorite thing together, snowboarding. It was beautiful!! We were to get married on June 21, 2014 but sadly he passed away in a avalanche last February. I had just gotten my dress the week before and we were to pick out rings when he got back from his trip out west. I love my dress but I never got to wear it. I am so excited that I get to wear it and show everyone how beautiful that day could have been. Erin-Watson-Madison-Justin-Lentz-Sun-Prairie-Wisconsin

    Is it possible for me to still get a 9X12 of Chad and Kate Kahles’s wedding photo with the whole party? I live in Crivitz and could pay and pick it up in person (Cheri Kahles…Chad’s Step-mom whwh

    Amazing job, beautiful couple!!!

We are so happy to share our love for little Miss Paityn's family by offering to Pay it Forward while also giving the opportunity for one special couple to bid on their dream wedding photography package. On October 10th, 2015 there will be a benefit, silent auction, and raffle at the Pullman House in Menominee, MI, benefiting Paityn Walters and her family. Magdalene Photography is donating a wedding package valued over $3,000 for the silent auction. Be sure to share with friends and family. There will be many large items up for auction and raffle.  Read more about Paityn's story and see pictures of her journey below.   wedding_package_donation_paityn_walters_peshtigo_wi At less than a year old, Paityn was diagnosed with acute liver failure. Thankfully, she received a liver transplant from her cousin, Caitlin, at Children's Hospital in Milwaukee, WI, on July 27, 2015. The miracle of a liver donated by her cousin Caitlyn saved her life, although this does not come without complication. Paityn, along with her mom and dad, has been at Children's Hospital for over three months, and they are unsure how many more months are ahead. It has been an emotional rollarcoaster caring for their daughter, praying that she can live a happy, carefree life, as well as dealing with the loss of work, hospital bills and travel expenses. miracle_for_paityn_wedding_package_giveaway_0034
