Margot Landen

Born in the cultural mecca that is New Orleans, Margot was constantly surrounded by creative influences. Embracing culture and travel not only became a desire, but a passion. After picking up her parents 35mm film camera at the age of 7, she quickly fell in love and used photography as a way of understanding and celebrating the world.

Going on to receive a BFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design, she quickly established a career with advertising and photographed a wedding for a close friend in 2008. Now, with over 14 years of experience, Margot's creative signature is rooted in the art of storytelling. With a speciality in shooting film (and digital), Margot's technique is equally matched by the experience and relationships built along the way. Her work has graced several publications including Vogue, People, Town and Country and the New York Times. She currently splits her time between Los Angeles and Dallas but her heart and home is where the next adventure takes her.

"From the very beginning, Margot was one of our best wedding decisions. Within our first interview with her, she was attentive and genuine in wanting to know who we were as a couple. There are a lot of great photographers (and Margot's photos speak for themselves), but we wanted a photographer that we felt comfortable with sharing our most intimate day. Her communication leading up to the wedding was stellar, and we trusted her wholeheartedly. We were astounded at how gorgeous she made us and our wedding look, and while there won't be another wedding, we would hire Margot again in a heartbeat."

"Margot photographed our engagement session and entire wedding weekend in Carmel, CA. As soon as we saw Margot's work and talked to her on the phone, we knew she would be a perfect fit. Margot is incredibly personable, responsive, and professional. Meeting her a few months before the wedding for our engagement shoot was a great way for us to meet and become comfortable with each other before the wedding - I definitely recommend this! Throughout the planning process and entire wedding weekend, Margot was extremely flexible and willing to work with any and all of our vendors to make the whole event seamless and get the most amazing shots. Not to mention our entire wedding party and families loved her! Overall, we could not have asked for a better experience and were thrilled with our choice of photographer before we even saw the photos! The photos were everything we could ever have imagined. Every detail, emotion, and experience was captured flawlessly. I know we will re-live those special moments with family and friends for years to come. Thank you, Margot, for sharing your gift with us!"
