Wife + Photographer + Acai Bowl Lover
Hi friend! I'm Maddie - a 24 year old destination wedding, elopement, brand and lifestyle photographer who loves anything Free People, Jesus, adventuring, date nights and Christmas time. Target, Marshalls and HomeGoods (and obvi Free People) are my weaknesses and somehow I always manage to walk out of there with a cart full of stuff that I by no means need, but do. I’m a midwest girl born and raised who’s always been in love and infatuated with the south. The ocean will forever hold such a special place in my heart. We dream of moving there someday.
My husbabe, Ben, and I are middle school sweethearts (yes, it's a thing!) and we got married in August of 2017. Becoming his wife was thee best (and easiest) decision I ever made. We love adventuring, hiking, traveling and watching cute dog videos on the ‘gram.
"If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans." Photography wasn't always my plan. I thought I knew what I wanted to do until God showed me that playing it safe was not His plan for my life, and my goodness am I glad He was right. I've loved photography ever since middle school, but didn't choose to pursue it until 2015. I realized that His plan was way better than mine. It was evident. He laid something on my heart that I still can't quite wrap my head around... He made my purpose and my direction so clear - something I'd been searching after for so many years. Although I didn't know it, starting this business was something He knew I would do long ago, and now that I’m here, I truly couldn't imagine doing anything else.
You're investing in me, investing in your legacy and investing in an experience when choosing me. I want this to be more than just taking pictures - I want this to be us hanging out, making memories for you and with you, and creating a legacy that you two will pass down for generations and lifetimes to come.
Okay, okay, enough about me! If you feel like we’d be a great match, shoot me an email from my contact page and let’s sit down over cups of coffee or yummy smoothies and set my creative soul on fire. I can't wait to meet you!
