Hey there, I’m Madalyn!


Nice to meet you! I’m a Detroit-based wedding and family photographer with over 100+ weddings and hundreds of sessions under my belt. I’m a balance of organized yet flexible, a beacon of calm behind the camera, and can make just about any awkward person feel comfy in front of my lens. My favorite part of my job is connecting with people and capturing their milestones in timeless yet non-editorial, real way. I’m passionate about working with and amping up people of all shapes and sizes.

"Out of all the hard decisions for the wedding, Madalyn was an easy choice and was the best choice we made"

Madalyn was a saint during the wedding day, helping to keep me (the bride) feel confident and beautiful. Locations for photos were perfect and we had some great poses. We felt we could chat casually as well which really gave us a vibe of Madalyn just being a good person. Madalyn herself and her process are great, as for her photos, they are STUNNING. I seriously can’t stop looking at them. They are so beautiful and truly capture the love between me and my husband, as well as great pictures with the friends and family.


"Not only does she have the best personality and is easy to work with, she takes her work seriously and the photos speak for themselves."

Madalyn made the planning process stress-free by sending out emails and keeping us on track with our online portal. She is very thorough and type A, making sure all your photography dreams come true! Madalyn was able to put us at ease on the day of the wedding. From the moment Madalyn arrived at the bridal suite, she was on a mission.

"Hire Madalyn if you want a photographer that is genuine, caring, organized, extremely talented, and will make your day so fun and flawless. You will not regret it!"

100% you should hire Madalyn for your wedding (or any photo needs). She is calm, intelligent, organized, and so talented. She made a timeline for my wedding day that I literally used to plan every other vendor. Her information forms are so great and helped me to work through what I actually wanted on the wedding day! On the day of the wedding she was a calming presence but also kept us (and our somewhat bad at listening bridal party) on schedule. She was like my guiding hand through the day hahah. But for real she is so genuine and organized and I credit the day running smoothly largely to her.
