For the better part of a decade I’ve documented the love stories of couples throughout the country with an editorial eye and a heart for the substantive, genuine moments that make up the start of a marriage.

My approach to wedding photography is rooted not only in creating light and emotion-filled imagery that will endure as an heirloom from your wedding day for years to come, but also in providing you with an unforgettable, personal experience. I believe that capturing intimate and authentic portraits and photographs begins first with building trust and friendship, and I relish in getting to know the unique story of each of my couples and their loved ones in the lead up to the main event.

Whether capturing the smallest hand-selected details or the earnest and emotional moments that define your day, I am so honored to play a role in preserving your unique story for a lifetime.

Initially, I began my photography business to financially partner with ministries in Africa.  However, as it quickly grew and as my season of life changed- I decided to transition from portraits into weddings.  A true romantic at heart, I quickly knew that wedding photography was where I was meant to be. 

I am married to my handsome husband Matt, and together we have a beautiful daughter- Emmalyn Rose. We love playing outside together, slow dancing in the kitchen, and going on as many adventures as we can find.

"There are no words to describe how amazing Madeline is- not only to work with, but her photos are like nothing I’ve seen before! I had a vision in my head of how I wanted my wedding photos to look and she is the only photographer who could’ve nailed it to perfection! She was there for me to help out from start to finish, you get more than a photographer with her- she genuinely cares and goes above and beyond for her brides!! We just got our wedding photos back and they are seriously perfect!"

"MADELINE WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND IN EVERY POSSIBLE WAY! NOT ONLY WAS SHE INCREDIBLY ORGANIZED, PROFESSIONAL & FLEXIBLE IN SCHEDULING AND TAILORING OUR PHOTOGRAPHY SESSIONS, BUT SHE DELIVERS INCREDIBLE PHOTOGRAPHS. SHE DID A GREAT JOB AT MAKING US FEEL COMFORTABLE...I COULD SING HER PRAISES ALL DAY, BUT I'LL LEAVE IT AT THIS. SHE IS SUPER CREATIVE & HAS A PHOTOGRAPHY STYLE THAT IS SO UNIQUE AND BEAUTIFUL. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER TO ANYONE LOOKING FOR A PHOTOGRAPHER. SHE IS JUST A REALLY AWESOME PERSON!"

"WHEN I FOUND MADELINE’S INSTAGRAM LOOKING FOR MY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER I KNEW HER PHOTOS WERE EXACTLY WHAT I WANTED MINE TO BE. AFTER MEETING HER, I FULLY TRUSTED HER TO CAPTURE OUR SPECIAL DAY. WHEN YOU CHOOSE HER, YOUR NOT JUST BOOKING HER FOR A DAY OR TWO OF YOUR LIFE. SHE TALKED WITH ME FREQUENTLY FOR A WHOLE YEAR PLANNING ALL THE DETAILS AND MAKING SURE THE WHOLE DAY WILL RUN SMOOTHLY. I WOULD RECOMMEND HER TO ANY AND EVERY BRIDE! BEYOND HAPPY WITH OUR PHOTOS!"

"MADELINE WAS SO WONDERFUL FROM START TO FINISH! WHEN I FOUND MADELINE ON INSTAGRAM, I FELL IN LOVE WITH HER STYLE! SHE WAS SO RESPONSIVE AND HELPFUL FROM THE MOMENT I CONTACTED HER. MADELINE WAS FULL OF ENERGY AND SO FUN DURING OUR ENGAGEMENT PICTURES AND MY BRIDAL SESSION. SHE MADE US BOTH FEEL AT EASE! MADELINE CAPTURED EVERY MOMENT PERFECTLY FROM GETTING HAIR AND MAKEUP DONE TO THE TIME WE EXITED THE VENUE. SHE WAS QUICK TO GIVE US SNEAK PEAKS AND DELIVERED OUR FULL WEDDING GALLERY IN A TIMELY MANNER. I LOVE EVERY PICTURE! I WOULD RECOMMEND MADELINE TO ANYONE LOOKING FOR A FUN AND CREATIVE PHOTOGRAPHER!"
