My journey into photography began as a little girl with a Polaroid camera, anxiously awaiting to see what magic I could create. Each picture felt like an extraordinary gift that I adored sharing with others. While on a mission trip to Africa in 2013, I photographed some very special children who taught me the gift of the image is the story that it tells. I’m honored that you are considering me to tell your story.
I approach my work with each unique couple in mind, creating an experience that is all about you. My photography is romantic, elegant, and thoughtful, with an editorial style that is aglow with emotional connection. My goal is to create heirloom memories for you as you live in the moment and enjoy your wedding day. Although I am based near Asheville, North Carolina, I photograph weddings both in the Southeast and destinations around the world. I can’t wait to hear from you, listen to your story, and create something special together!
Luxury Destination Wedding Photography. The romantic, organic wedding photography by Madeline Trent. Serving brides & grooms in the Southeast and worldwide.
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!"
