Weddings for joyful, life-loving couples who adore each other, genuine moments, and glowy golden sunsets.

I'm all about pretty bouquets and stunning ring shots, but I'm more about you and the memories you make with the people you love.

There's something to be said about the tiny moments that take place on wedding days... like the way your momma watches you get ready or that joyful smile you two flash each other after you’ve said, “I do”. Because when the wedding dress is hung, all that remains of the cake is the topper, and the thank you notes have been sent... the one piece of your wedding day that remains is the photographs. 

There is nothing I love more than serving as a storyteller for my clients by creating tangible and heartfelt images that speak to your heart when you first see them, and to later generations when they are hanging in your home. All the good stuff, the little moments and the big moments, we’re going to capture it all.

Carly Hooser

“Maddie made our big day feel nothing short of magical. She has such a laid back and comical personality that can bring anyone out of their shell. My husband, Joseph, who hates pictures, opened right up with Maddie and it made for the best pictures. She was very attentive and supportive throughout the whole wedding process with updates and encouraging texts. During our engagement photos, Maddie was such a trooper and determined to help us capture the look we wanted. We climbed barb wire fences, drove all over town, and she even brought out her hidden talent and made me a wildflower bouquet from our field during my bridals... totally forgot mine! She definitely helped make the whole wedding process something to remember and we have beautiful pictures to prove it!”

“ Maddie is a rockstar!! She has such a talent and passion for what she does and it shows! Our shoot with her will forever be a highlight of our engagement. I can’t wait to have her be a part of our big day!”

Sierra Jumper

“Choosing Maddie for my engagement pictures was hands down the BEST decision! She is not only AMAZING at what she does, but you can tell through her work that is her passion! She is a joy to work with and her energy makes everyone excited about taking pictures (even my stubborn fiance had a great time)!”




step 1: inquiry + booking

Upon inquiry, you will receive my bridal pricing guide with all of the details you need to know about pricing and package options. Once things are booked and we’re officially official, we will begin planning all of the fun details for your engagement shoot!

step 2: your engagement session

So here is where the fun begins! After working together to choose the perfect locations, we will spend an hour together to shoot your engagement photos! Your only job during our session is to love on each other, maybe exchange some butt grabbin', and I will do that rest . This is a time for us to get to know one another, get comfortable working together and allow you to spend time together in front of the camera with no stress! It's the BEST way to prepare for portraits on your wedding day!

step 3: timeline planning

As your wedding day approaches, I will be available to help with anything and everything you need - vendor recommendations, timeline preparation, planning suggestions and more. When we are just a few weeks out, I will send a questionnaire to finalize timelines and gather last minute details to help the day run smoothly. That way, you can wake up on your wedding day entirely stress free and ready to marry that man of your dreams!
