working with maddy

"Booking Maddy was - bar none - our best decision. The photos are so incredibly artful, intimate, and breathtaking." 

Your photos are the only investment from your wedding that increases in value over time, which is why I don’t take my role for granted. They turn from snapshots of fleeting moments to precious heirlooms for you and future generations to look back on. Weddings are milestones and I want to capture photos that balance composed portraits with joyful, candid moments. I use a combination of artistic direction, dynamic lighting, and attention to detail to capture fine art images that endure the test of time.

My focus as a wedding photographer is to understand what makes an incredible experience for you. Whether it’s lots of portraits, making it to cocktail hour, including your pup or spending the whole night on the dance floor, we’ll make it happen. I’m passionate about sharing a genuine connection and am committed to serving my clients, their families and friends. Throughout the entire process I’m there to help plan, offer advice and be your support system.

frequently asked questions

do you help us pose?

Yes, I walk you through all the posing so you feel confident in front of the camera. I like to use a mix of classic romantic poses and some fun prompts that encourage more genuine laughter!

I love being both interactive and discrete throughout the wedding day. There will be parts of the wedding day when I will step in to guide the timeline and your posing and parts of the day where you shouldn’t even know I’m there.

Should we hire a wedding planner?

Yes! I strongly encourage working with a wedding planner to bring your vision to life. I require our clients to work with a month of coordinator at a minimum and am happy to provide recommendations of local vendors we love. 

frequently asked questions


Yes! Engagement sessions are a wonderful way for us to get to know each other and for you two to get comfortable in front of the camera. They are included in all of my collections.

When is our gallery delivered?


Engagement galleries are delivered in 3 weeks and wedding galleries in 6 weeks. However, I always deliver sneak peeks within 48 hours, so you have some to enjoy while you wait!

All of my photography collections include a second photographer for at least part of the day to ensure consistent photo coverage and a versatile final gallery.
