Mae Hogan Photography | About

I am completely and forever taken by photography. Photographs are beautiful memory triggers, and I hope that mine will inspire story sharing for many years to come. I love spending my weekends documenting the beginnings of awesome new families! I transitioned into photography from a career in architecture. I originally went to college for Fine Arts, but ended up with a Bachelor of Architecture (the 5 year degree!). I worked many years in architecture firms in the Boston area as an architectural designer/project manager. Then I made a circle back to my fine arts instincts, I picked up a camera, and started as an enthusiastic hobbyist, which led to eventually learning portrait photography. Once I was into photographing people, I was hooked. My first few seasons of Wedding Photography were mostly busy with 2nd shooting, for awesome photographers, the first couple seasons for Steve Holmes Photography. Later with the incredible, hardest-working photographer in the history of the universe, Anne Skidmore Photography, for whom I still often 2nd. It has a been a really fun and challenging journey to get to this point in my photography career!
