“She was totally non-intrusive and photos during the event happened very naturally.”
I LOVED working with Madalyn. She was super flexible, very organized and experienced. She met me and the girls at the salon for photos and helped us stay on track and knew what to do when a couple of hair appointments ran late and when later in the night, family members weren’t where they were supposed to be and when we had to rearrange the schedule because speeches and dinner took too long. She and the second photographer were truly amazing. She was totally non-intrusive and photos during the event happened very naturally. I’ve seen some companies that literally blocked everyone else’s view during cake cuttings and first dances and was so glad Madalyn wasn’t like that. She did a great job with retouching (I have a skin condition on my arms). I got tons of photos from her after the event and they were so beautiful and everyone loved them. HIGHLY RECOMMEND
“Madalyn was probably the best photographer we could have asked for, it was like having a friend instead of a vendor do our photos.”
Her photos obviously speak for themselves but she was so incredibly organized and professional throughout the entire process, she got us our timeline and I was able to use that to build the rest of our day of schedule around it. She communicated early and often and always made sure she got the list of required photos we wanted so we didn’t miss anything. She was assertive when she needed to be to wrangle our families for photos but otherwise was extremely flexible in getting shots if the plans changed! Especially since our wedding was late in the winter and we decided against a first look, she made sure to have a lighting assistant on hand to help coordinate additional flash and we got some great evening photos, and the second shooter who helped out had some awesome ideas for important shots too! Madalyn used the engagement photo session to get to know us and she just does a great job of capturing candid and genuine emotion and just made the entire planning experience and day of photos so comfortable and fun.
“She is caring, professional, personable, and incredibly creative, easy to work with, and talented.“
Madalyn is simply amazing! We fully trusted her ability to capture the look we were envisioning within our engagement pictures and wedding day, and without a doubt highly recommend her. She is caring, professional, personable, and incredibly creative, easy to work with, and talented. Through her expertise and guidance, we felt at ease taking pictures in very public areas, and through her diligence and organization, we felt at ease leading up to the big day. Our pictures are something we will always treasure, and we thank Madalyn for her top notch photography skills.
“She made my husband and I so comfortable in front of the camera, and we heard the same feedback from our bridal party and guests.”
Madalyn was the first vendor I hired, and I’m so glad I went with her as our photographer! Throughout our year long engagement, she was so helpful during the wedding planning process. She made my husband and I so comfortable in front of the camera, and we heard the same feedback from our bridal party and guests. She was able to keep everything on schedule, and sent us photos the Monday after our Saturday wedding. I cannot wait to use her for all photography needs in the future, and highly recommend her to anyone in Michigan!
“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 was an outstanding photographer from start to finish! It was clear Madalyn was the right decision from the beginning. After sending in our inquiry, she got back with us right away and included a draft timeline and personal video. She was prompt, personable and I could tell right away it would be a breeze working with her! 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! It was a very hot and uncomfortable day for our engagement shoot, but Madalyn immediately put us at ease and helped us feel confident in front of the camera. As we got closer to the wedding, Madalyn did a great job in helping me with the wedding day timeline. She worked with me to make sure that all the “must have” photos were identified and that we scheduled enough time so that we wouldn’t feel rushed on the big day. Similar to the engagement shoot, 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. 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. The photo gallery Madalyn delivered was absolutely gorgeous. I will cherish these photos forever and look forward to getting them in an album soon! Thank you Madalyn, you are the best
