My name is Maddie. I'm an Atlanta native and moved around a lot growing up, which I think ultimately cultivated my love for travel. I studied journalism + design in college and am proudly putting that degree to work as a freelance photographer. In 2017, I married my husband Jeremy in Birmingham, Alabama, where we live and work! My ultimate goal is to create imagery that reminds people that their story matters and inspires us all to pursue lives of intentionality.
I discovered my love for photography at a very early age. My first portraits were taken on a hot pink Barbie® polaroid camera, and I later learned how to develop film in the darkroom. As a kid, I spent hours upon hours going through my parent's old photographs—listening to the stories behind each of them.
I never realized my hobby could become a career until after college when I took my first job as an art director at a magazine. I fell in love with planning photoshoots, styling, and directing to create bold imagery. My experience in print journalism and design truly catalyzed this business. While I may have updated my toolkit from that first 90s polaroid, storytelling is still the root of my passion.

Maddie is truly one of the absolute best things that came from our whole wedding planning process. She's kind, professional, and as intentional as they come. From day one, she treated us as friends, not just clients. It's so evident how important it is for her to know the people and the stories she's capturing. She has the ability to make us feel ourselves with complete ease. Maddie captured our day so authentically and gave us timeless photos to cherish for our whole lives. I'm so thankful to now call Maddie a friend and can't wait to have her capture all of the special seasons to come for us! I cannot recommend her enough!
Maddie has been my go-to photographer since moving to Birmingham last year! I've used her for both professional and personal photo sessions, and I've never been anything but completely impressed with the final result. Aside from her pure talent and eye for detail, Maddie is kind, inviting, and so timely with her gallery delivery.
We couldn't have asked for a better wedding photographer! Maddie is kind, professional, calm, efficient, confident and so talented. She truly went above and beyond capturing our day beautifully! We are so happy with how are wedding photos turned out and will cherish them for a lifetime. She really was a true joy to work with and one of our favorite wedding vendors! I can't wait to work with Maddie again to capture all of life's milestones.
The morning of our engagement session was freezing, but Maddie handled the session perfectly! She was well prepared but flexible, go with the flow but kept us moving, carried out our vision and gave great direction. If you’re looking for someone to take your pictures, we couldn’t recommend her more!
