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!
