Martina Micko Photography

Martina knows our venue well, though she's based in San Diego. She's photographed several things at The Maxwell House (as you can see above, which is on our garden patio!) Her photos are always lovely, with an eye for capturing color and architecture. We love that her photographs are elegant but don't take themselves too seriously, which allows her to snap just the right moment between couples and of their guests. She has a wonderful range and her galleries are always lots of fun to look through!

Monica Linda Photography   They are more than spouses or even co-founders, they are each other's personal cheerleaders and each other's biggest advocate. In their own words: "Being a couple for twenty years it was pretty simple to identify each other's strengths and weaknesses, we embrace our differences and leverage them accordingly as it relates to running our business. Being married to your business partner is a challenge but we found out that if you give 100% to each other every day the business side just works itself out. We always try our very best and then next time we do it better. We formed a relationship, then a marriage and now we are building a business together. "  From Engagements to Weddings to Corporate Events and Lifestyle photography, they are eager to capture the moments that matter, your moments. And because they are a part of it, they know how to photograph those special intimacies, especially for those in the LGBTQ community. They capture the love in every shot.  ~Monica Linda & Shell   www.monicalindaphotography.com

Musicians we love...

DART Collective - DJ's & Bands   "At Dart, we are all working DJs and musicians. Music is our passion and we want to share it with you and your guests—whether that means digging through vinyl crates for that one song you have to have, or customizing a repertoire list for one of our bands to flawlessly execute, our main goal here is to elevate and personalize your event so that it uniquely represents you.  Despite our attention to detail, we are not elitists and we do not take ourselves too seriously. These events are supposed to be fun, inclusive experiences and we want to only enhance that feeling by playing the best music we can. Whether it’s getting down to LCD Soundsystem or setting the mood with Paul Simon, we want to offer something a little different that will still connect with you and your guests."   https://dart-collective.com/

Harp By Karina

The harp sounds truly stunning with the acoustics at The Maxwell House, as we learned after hearing Karina perform at our venue. She has a wide range in portfolio of music she can play for all types of events. We love how wonderful the harp sounds and how quickly it transforms the environment into feeling like a truly special occasion.
