Okay. Just for a moment think about a year or two from your wedding day. The flowers are dead or dried. Your cake is long gone. The guests have left. The dress is still hanging in your guest room closet uncleaned (oh wait, just me? oops). The big day you’ve planned and hopefully not but probably did stress over is over.
What do you have left from your wedding?
I hope your answer is first of all your marriage (that’s important obvi) and your photos. And I hope your photos are on your walls, in an album, and plastered all over your social media and phone. These images are the first heirlooms you’ll have as a couple to pass down. Whoever you end up choosing as your photographer, I would urge you to try to see the photos as an investment in your memories, as the vehicle that will continue to tell your story over and over again. It’s a purchase you won’t regret because it’ll keep on giving over and over again.
I respect that everyone has a budget for their wedding day. I did too! I know money can be awkward to talk about. But this is my full time job and how I provide for my family. All of this to say…don’t let price be the reason you don’t reach out. My retainer is $750 and the rest of your package is due one week before your big day. There’s payment plans to be had, so I promise it can be totally doable. If you really connect with me, and my work, and think we could really do something cool together, EMAIL ME and let’s talk.

THE MOST FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How would you describe your style?
Non-intrusive, comfortable, and natural. I strive to direct only when needed and let you enjoy the day as it unfolds. The more I insert myself into your day as a curator, the more the day becomes about ME when it’s about YOU. I keep it natural, keep it comfortable, and bring out the best in you.
What kind of gear do you use?
I have been a long-time Sony user and I use professional Sony mirrorless cameras with primarily prime lenses. I always have backup equipment for everything I use because failing to prepare is preparing to fail.
Can we see full galleries?
You bet! It’s the best way to see how I approach a day and what to expect when it’s all over.
Are you insured?
Yes, definitely! Insurance protects me and you! I am insured through The Harford.
Do you travel?
I do, especially within Michigan! I serve primarily the Detroit and Ann Arbor area but love to travel. I do charge a travel fee for weddings outside of a 3-hour radius of my home. Contact me for more info!
We are nervous about being photographed. Help!
If I had a dollar for every time someone told me this, I’d have a fat stack of cash! No, but really, I gotchu. I know what it feels like to be nervous about looking good in photos and my goal is to create an environment where you can feel comfortable to be completely you. I give you enough direction but really think of it all like a game of improv…we say “yes and…” a lot! If you are super duper nervous, an engagement session is something you definitely want to do! It’ll give you confidence in yourselves and acclimate you to being in front of a camera.
How long until we can see our photos?
My delivery time is 6-8 weeks. I edit your photos and make sure they are absolutely perfect before I send them to you. If you’d like them sooner, I can rush edit them for $500 and put you to the front of my editing queue.
How far in advance should we book?
The hot dates usually go 12-18 months ahead of time. Most couples book me in the 9-12 month window before their wedding.
How do we get this party started?
Inquire! Let’s chat about your wedding. I really want to get to know you so I can give you an amazing experience. I want to help you choose the best package for your needs and make sure we are going to jive. It’s about more than just the photos for me. If we’re a great fit, I’ll send a contract and invoice to pay your $750 retainer and then we are offish.

Being an out of state bride, I was a little stressed about planning, but Madalyn was always available by email or phone to help me with timeline planning and any questions I had. The day of the wedding ran so smoothly and she helped me stay calm and really enjoy the moment. She really made me and my husband feel comfortable in front of the camera and to have fun with it. Madalyn is so talented and I absolutely love her style.
