Hi I'm Maddy and I'm a Virginia wedding and senior portraits photographer. I'm a London loving, cat snuggling JMU alum who thrives capturing modern, romantic and joyful photos for the amazing high school seniors and couples in love I get to work with. More than anything I love history, storytelling, and documenting special moments. You can explore some of my favorite stories below!

The first fall engagement session of the year is here! Last week I met up with Janelle and Steven for their Harper’s Ferry engagement session. After a short drive out of the state we met up in this historic West Virginia town for their portraits. Janelle had actually scouted out locations on Google maps before […]

Wedding albums– a beautiful, but often expensive addition to your wedding package. Sometimes it might feel like it’s not worth the extra money. While I totally understand budgets I really do believe that investing in a wedding album is one of the best things you can do when booking your wedding photographer! With every wedding […]

I could talk all day about how incredible this wedding was! Lauren and Matt’s Breaux Vineyards wedding in Purcellville, Virginia was stunning. It was such an honor to play a small role in the day and capture their memories along side Corrin of Corrin Jasinski Photography! Breaux Vineyards is one of the most beautiful venues! […]

I love any opportunity to head south for a wedding and after a short drive down got to meet these two for the first time! They were a bundle of excitement from the moment […]

This summer I’ve captured seven beautiful senior sessions! Around half of the girls decided to have professional hair and makeup done for the portraits. Investing in hair and makeup for your senior session makes a huge difference! While it is an expensive addition it’s worthwhile to make the most of your experience. How often do […]

All through the month of September I’m offering a free bridal session to any brides that book their 2018 wedding with Maddy Williams Photography. Bridal sessions are a Southern tradition, but recently I’ve had more brides inquire about them. Bridal sessions are usually booked in the spring. This gives you time to pick out your […]

The third senior spokesmodel session is up! Last weekend Kelly choose to have her photos done at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens in Vienna, VA. I’ve been lucky enough to do a few sessions at Meadowlark this year, and each time I feel like I’m finding new tucked away spots to explore. The park grounds are huge […]

Of all the wedding traditions out there first looks are probably one of the newest traditions!  Many couples are unsure of if they want to have a first look when they first start planning for the wedding day because they don’t know all of the benefits of including it in your big day. It can […]

Last weekend I got to capture Alina & Jarrod’s beautiful wedding at Lydia Mountain in Stanardsville, Virginia. Before the wedding day I had actually never met Alina & Jarrod! These two were one of my very first 2017 couples to book last September, but since they chose not to do an engagement session we never […]
