Hi there! I'm Maddie. A Texas based wedding & portrait photographer who documents people and stories in an authentic, loving way. I love photographing moments as a story highlighted with natural light, nature and the gorgeous afternoon sunshine that God blessed this great state of Texas with.
This day started with lots of squeals and the tightest hugs from Sara and her momma! It seems like yesterday when I first got the inquiry for this winter wedding and I learned all about Sara and Austin’s story and I immediately related to Sara on what it is like to plan a wedding around the military. Honestly, when the military is involved it’s best to not plan anything at all! Right?!
Sara’s bridesmaids were so incredibly sweet. I honestly felt so undeserving of the compliments and the help they offered us throughout the day. It’s no wonder they are all such great friends! Throughout the day, you could feel the love and support Sara and Austin are surrounded by. It’s a special thing to start a marriage with the undying support of your loved ones!
It may have been a chilly day in December, but that meant the girls were abled to rock adorable furs! My last 2018 wedding ended with fur-wearing bridesmaids! I’m down for that trend. We were working in high-speed mode after the ceremony to get everything accomplished but you would never know it in their portraits! Even though we didn’t shoot an engagement session with these two, they are pros! Just wait until you see the magic we made!!
This wedding is the LAST ONE of 2019 and I couldn’t think of a more perfect couple to end with than these two. Sara and Austin, we love you both! Your day was a dream and it was such a privilege to be the ones there to capture it!! Thank you for allowing us to be there!!! I can’t wait to share my favorites with you all!
