I'm Maddy, a Northern Virginia wedding photographer who loves Gone Girl-esque suspense novels and biographies about queens, snuggling with my cats, true crime podcasts, rewatching my favorite shows on Netflix, trying out a new cocktail recipe, baking something chocolate, hitting up happy hour with a gang of friends or searching for cheap flights to my next destination.

I love photographing crazy in love couples at the start of a new chapter in their lives. There is nothing I love more than offering support and building genuine friendships with the couples I work with. From the inquiry to delivering your wedding album I am honored to be part of the process and capture beautiful photographs for you!

lead photographer

My photography hobby quickly transformed into a business when family friends asked me to shoot their wedding when I was just 16. It wasn't long before I realized my passion for photography was the perfect way to tell stories and I begin pursuing dreams of capturing love stories. Over time, I've become inspired by romantic, vibrant images and find inspiration in the joy and friendships I develop with all the crazy in love  couples I work with.

In my spare time I love Gone Girl-esque suspense novels and biographies about queens, snuggling with my cats, true crime podcasts, rewatching my favorite shows on Netflix, trying out a new cocktail recipe, baking something chocolate, hitting up happy hour with a gang of friends or searching for cheap flights to my next destination.

My goal is to not only capture beautiful images,
but images full of heart and meaning.

jmu

I graduated from

No offense to other schools, but JMU is the best! My heart bleeds purple and gold for James Madison and the wonderful experience I had there. Nothing beats warm days lounging on the Quad, classmates holding doors for ya and sticky nuggs from Billy Jack's! One of my favorite memories? Getting to photograph the inside of Wilson's cupola!

my best friend

i've been dating

Despite both being Loudoun natives and living fifteen minutes apart most of our lives, Kyle and I didn't meet until college. After being introduced by some mutual friends we've been together pretty much ever since! Over the past four years we've grown up together, graduated and moved into our first place together. We're we're not at home we love exploring! Some of our favorite adventures so far have been the Bahamas, Atlanta, Charleston, and London.

London

I left my heart in

My junior year of college I spent 3 months living and falling in love with London. It became my second home while I studied, and no matter how many other European cities I explored on the weekend it remained my favorite. London gave me some of my very best friends, most memorable stories and the confidence I needed to return to the states and pursue my business.

After a semester abroad

Growing up, I never imagined that I would spend my weekends capturing love stories for crazy in love, joyful couples. I always thought I would be a writer when I grew up, but the time I got to college there was only one thing I knew for sure. I have a passion for stories. My photography hobby quickly transformed into a business when family friends asked me to shoot their wedding when I was just 16. It wasn't long before I realized my passion for photography was the perfect way to tell stories.

In 2014, I began pursuing dreams of capturing wedding on a regular basis. Four years later I shoot 20 weddings a year and have worked with many incredible couples to document their memories. I love romantic, vibrant imagery and find inspiration in the joy and friendships I develop with all the head over heels in love couples I work with. 

My goal is to not only capture beautiful images,
but images full of heart and meaning.
