Love stories are my favorite stories to tell. It is an honor to capture joy and romance on your wedding day and preserve some of your most special memories for years to come. I love working with couples who are enthusiastic about their wedding day and value the history they're creating together.
"I like light, color, luminosity... things full of color and vibrant."
Capturing other people's love and joy is something I don't take for granted. My focus as a wedding photographer is to make the experience fun for you two, while also giving you time to soak in the quiet, romantic moments. I'm there through the entire process to help plan, offer advice, and be your support system. Photographing people in the middle of one of life's greatest adventures is truly my passion and I'm so grateful to those who have chosen me to be their storyteller.

She is easy going, genuine, patient, and overall a wonderful individual to work with. When we first contacted Maddy, she was quick to respond and was always around to answer any questions you had along the way. She made [being in front of the camera] less cheesy and more romantic, and helped us get comfortable and confident leading up to the big day. On our wedding day, Maddy was on time, professional, and she didn't miss a shot. Maddy was more than just a photographer she offered to help with anything that we needed or wanted. She makes you feel at ease the entire time and truly captures the most amazing shots—-both unique and timeless.

Maddy was above and beyond anything you could ever imagine as a photographer.
She was the most professional and responsive vendor we worked with throughout the entire process. She exceeded our expectations from the start and then continued to surprise us even more along the way. Maddy is an incredible photographer, but her pictures aren’t the only thing that make her so great. She made us feel so comfortable during our engagement session and had some great ideas... On our wedding day she went above and beyond to make sure every part of our day was captured. There was rain looming in the forecast all weekend, and they sky was full of clouds on our wedding day. Maddy helped me stay positive about the weather and our pictures all day... Looking back at our pictures, you would never even know it had been rainy/gloomy that day. We truly can’t thank Maddy enough for being such an incredible photographer, and I have and will continue to recommend her to anyone who is in need of a photographer. I am already trying to come up with ideas to do more photo shoots with her in the future.

I truly can’t say enough good things about Maddy.
I am so glad that we found and hired Maddy! She was great to work with throughout the entire process. I was worried before I hired her (or anyone) about my late ceremony start time and how in the world we were going to get quality pictures after dark. She was super responsive in sending me plenty of examples and talking through the use of flash with me. After we hired her, she sent us a super helpful magazine-style book to go through what to expect from our engagement session, what to wear, wedding day timelines - basically everything you could need to know. She made us feel so comfortable at our engagement session and returned sneak peak pictures from that to us the same day! For the wedding, she and her second shooter were on time, professional, worked well with my wedding planner, and kept everything running smoothly. She got us sneak peaks (there were like 95 of them) back the day after the wedding! Maddy is truly a rockstar - I'd hire her again in a heartbeat.

I'd hire Her again in a heartbeat.
Maddy is absolutely amazing! My now husband and I had our engagement photo shoot with her and our wedding photos. She was so creative and was willing to work with us in all conditions (cold weather, scheduling) and all of our dogs! Her photos are absolutely stunning and we couldn't have had a more perfect photographer capture the best day of our lives! Thank you Maddy!

MADDY IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!
Maddy is a phenomenal photographer and helps make you feel right at home in front of the camera, even if you HATE being in photographs normally. I was so worried about being awkward or uneasy in front of the camera and feeling a little strange about kissing in front of (what was then) a total stranger. But she was just as chatty and happy as can be which made me forget she was photographing us and made it feel like dancing in the middle of the Jefferson Memorial at sun-up in 20-degree weather wearing sandals was a totally normal thing to do. She suffered through what must have been the coldest March morning known to man just to get the best shots of us but she didn’t complain or stop smiling once which I still am so impressed with. For the wedding portion she was quick to grab you away for a necessary shot here or there without having anyone miss you as well as coordinating with you to have your family pictures take as little time as possible but come out amazing. She is always so quick to reply, she is not pushy to get things done but also dedicates her time to making sure everything is perfect, best of all she takes great pictures and is genuinely a nice person to work with. I cannot recommend her enough!

She makes you feel right at home in front of the camera
She was professional, talented, and made us feel so comfortable during our photoshoots. She truly nailed the sweet romance we were trying to achieve through our pictures. Our package also included an engagement session and the photos came out beautiful! We had an incredible selection to choose for our save the date and website photos. Maddy’s system is also so easy to use. She uploads all photos online and gives you the option to download into a Google Photos album so it makes sharing with friends and family incredibly simple. In the days leading up to our wedding, Maddy was organized and helpful, even prepared for the rainfall predicted for our wedding! The day turned out gorgeous and so did our pictures. We are so happy we chose Maddy to capture our big day and I know you will too!
-Matt & Emily
We absolutely loved working with Maddy!
Maddy is truly an angel to work with! I looked at other photographers but none were as sweet as Maddy. In the middle of my engagement I moved out of the state and she was still able to work with me on everything through email. When the big day came she was on top of everything and made it so easy for my family and bridal party since it was raining that day, and her photos made it look like it wasn’t raining! Her attention to detail is amazing and she knows how to capture those special moments for you to enjoy and to always remember. I highly recommend her to anyone needing a photographer for any reason
-Tiffany & Josh
HER ATTENTION TO DETAIL IS AMAZING
She shot both our engagement and wedding photos, and they all came out beautiful. Maddy is extremely knowledgable and flexible with all of the things that are out of your control (we had snow and a lot of family photos) and left us nothing to worry about. For two people who do not enjoy being in front of the camera very much, we look forward to looking at these photos year after year to come! Thank you Maddy!
-Sarah & Huw
Working with Maddy was arguably the best decision we made in our wedding process!
I had THE DREAM TEAM for my wedding and I'm so happy Maddy was available to photograph our engagement and wedding. She's driven and has vision, which helped so much with my indecisiveness. My pictures turned out AMAZING and have received SO MANY compliments. I have even had friends already call her for their weddings! She was prompt with replies and was even there for my breakdown when I had to find a new planner. She has connections throughout the wedding industry and new small details that I would have never thought to ask. I would recommend her to anyone and EVERYONE!
-Janelle & Steven
I would recommend her to anyone and EVERYONE!
Maddy was AMAZING! She captured all the special moments of my big day. Her pictures were natural and elegant- half the time I didn’t even know she was around and when I saw all the pictures I was just thrilled at how many special moments she was able to capture. We have a big family and I was a little worried about time but she was able to get all of our family portraits done quickly and they came out so beautiful. Maddy really makes you feel comfortable while taking pictures and allows you to just enjoy the moment!

I was thrilled at how many special moments she was able to capture.
One of the most important things to me as a bride was to have an outstanding photographer to capture the most important day of my life. I am beyond happy that my mom found Maddy! As far as the wedding- it was expected to downpour all day on my wedding day, which it did. Maddy came prepared for the rain with umbrellas for my entire bridal party, so we could still get pictures in case the rain didn't stop. She is so patient and has so many great ideas for poses. I searched through hundreds of reviews (literally) when trying to choose our photographer, and I am so happy we chose to go with Maddy.... Maddy is truly the best- I would highly recommend her! If I ever need a photographer in the future, I will definitely be using her.
