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 vibrant, 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 sun has finally returned to Virginia, and it was just in time for Khanita and Luan’s engagement session on the waterfront in Old Town Alexandria. Khanita and Luan have been together since high school! Mutual friends first introduced them and they bonded through their shared love of music and cards games and surviving math […]

It seems like for the past few weeks every session and wedding I’ve been at has had rain and dark skies. Even on the days there was no rain the sky was overcast and misty. Holly and Justin had originally scheduled their engagement session on a Sunday evening, but with it looking like rain was […]

Every time I photograph a new couple I’m always so grateful for the opportunity to be the one to capture their memories. It’s even more special when two close friends trust you with that responsibility. Sarah and I met in college and during our time a JMU studied abroad and ran on the executive board […]

It’s been a few weeks since the cherry blossoms, but Amanda and Josh’s engagement session is up on the blog! Originally we had picked out a weekend in March for their engagement photos, but because of the crazy spring we had in D.C.  the trees refused to bloom. For a while it seemed like the peek […]

Despite being a Loudoun wedding photographer, I’ve never gotten the chance to visit Tranquility Farm in Purcellville until a few weeks ago. All of a sudden I ended up there back to back two days in a row! Tranquility is where my first 2018 wedding will be so I started the week with a walkthrough […]

The stubborn cold weather has kept the cherry blossoms from blooming, but that didn’t stop this spring D.C. engagement session from being full of beautiful light and flowers! Stephanie and Reese met up with me at the Jefferson Memorial last weekend for a rather chilly spring session. We’ve been chatting since the fall and it […]

Anyone who knows me will tell you I am not a morning person, but Caitlin and Jackson’s D.C. engagement session was definitely worth the early morning wakeup call! Last weekend I met these two at the Jefferson Memorial right at sunrise for their chilly morning portraits. They (along with Caitlin’s mom, sister and pup) braved […]

Katrina and Michael’s Great Falls engagement session is the first one of 2018! From the first time Katrina emailed me she was talking about a winter engagement session, so we picked a day right at the beginning of the year and crossed our fingers for snow. Somehow we ended up with quite the opposite– a […]

Tucked away in the countryside, Goodstone Inn and Restaurant is a romantic bed and breakfast located in Middleburg, Virginia. It also happened to be the perfect backdrop for Lauren and Shane’s engagement session! Goodstone Inn has a cute courtyard, winding paths, ivy walls and some big open fields. We originally had picked a location closer to […]

One of my favorite parts of being a wedding photographer is getting to travel to places I’ve never been before. Last weekend was no exception! After a little road trip down south, I met up with Ashley and David for their engagement session at Longwood University. While I’ve heard lots of wonderful things about Farmville […]
