The Ladies of Revealed Studios


That's studio owner Maggie Rife Ponce on the right and associate Kelly Feldmiller on the left. We’re two best friends turned shooting mates. Self-described “feelers,” we are in love with all things that make our hearts pitter-patter. This what we strive to bring alive in your photos.

Maggie believes in really connecting with her subjects to create pictures that are not only beautiful, but reflective of each client’s spirit. She lives with her husband, Anthony, and their son, Theo. In her spare time, she loves yoga, exploring new places, cooking, and the many things that make her heart swoon (such as Outlander, East of Eden by Steinbeck, and the song Cherry Wine by Hozier…sigh…).

For Kelly, one of her major goals in life is for those around her to always feel comfortable, which comes in handy for boudoir. She has a natural eye and a knack for details. Outside of the studio, Kelly can be found walking her dog Hektor, baking sweets, dancing late night at Carols, or devouring a Dave Eggers novel, one of which inspired the tattoo, “YES” on her left wrist.
