I think that in order to appreciate everything in your life, you need to stop and take a few minutes to soak it all in. There are going to be stressors and imperfections in the every day (your wedding day included!). Scattered between those imperfect moments though, will be some really astonishing moments that could easily be missed if you’re not paying attention. I’m also a big believer that an outside perspective can be a valuable thing. It is sometimes difficult to see how amazing your life is, just as it is. You don’t need awkward posing. You don’t need to photoshop the flaws out. Its already perfect because it is your story and its worth telling.
I’d love to have a cup of coffee with you so that we can build you a package that makes the most sense for what you’re looking for. While I’m based in Chicago, I love to travel as well and offer special rates for destination weddings/sessions.
Let’s take a morning or an afternoon to make some really cozy moments in your home.
But with a booked wedding, special rates can apply.
We met with several photographers and at the end of the day, we felt most comfortable with Maddie. Her photos felt natural and light, NOT your typical prom poses of "stand here, put your hand here, look in this direction." We wanted the "essence" of our wedding captured on camera and holy smokes, I'm still blown away. Everyone that has seen our photos has commented how they feel as if they are there in that photo and reliving the memory with us.
Her unique way of capturing special moments and her artistic approach to photography really spoke to us when looking for a wedding photographer. She was there to keep us organized and to answer any questions we had, even if it wasn't about pictures! We would absolutely recommend Maddie to anyone looking capture incredible, one of a kind photos.
Working with Maddie was fantastic. She is super friendly, professional and enthusiastic all at once. She did a great job putting me and my husband at ease and making us feel comfortable even though we both felt a bit awkward about taking photos. The day of the wedding, she was very efficient with all the couple and family photos, was both everywhere and invisible the rest of the night. BONUS: ask to see pics of her adorable dog!
Maddie did our engagement and wedding photos, and truly went above and beyond. She listened to us, helped make us feel comfortable, and ultimately delivered a set of wedding photos that we will cherish and proudly share with friends and family.
Maddie is wonderful! I feel like I can't write a good enough review to convey how highly I think about her and her work. We used her as our wedding photographer in May and I am so, so thankful that we did! The photos are beautiful! Looking through them I laughed, I (happy) cried, and I laughed so hard I cried. I've gone through them all about 20 more times and I feel like each time I fall in love with a different photo. The way she told our story is so beautiful and artistic, more than I even knew I wanted!
Maddie and her assistant were incredibly professional and discreet. I didn't realize they were there half the time, honestly. It was wonderful to just get lost in the day. And the pictures themselves are worth every penny. So many that brought me right back to that day, and bring happy tears to my eyes. She really has an eye for capturing pure emotions.
