meet your photographer
+ my approach.

working together

Before being a photographer, I am a people person. I value connection with the people in my own life and with those who hire me as well.  I aspire to work with others who keep their people close and at the center of their lives. I love getting creative with all the fun details on wedding days, but more importantly I’m someone who craves connection and authenticity and look for that throughout the day. I like to call myself a professional facilitator, as I am strategic in giving space for real moments to happen without having too much of a heavy hand in directing. I want to set my clients up for success and beautiful photos while allowing them to tell their own story.

so what am i all about?

We made the move from the East Bay Area to Santa Cruz in August of 2021 and it was the best decision we could have made. This place just feels like HOME in every way.

My journey

"one of the best decisions we made for our wedding..."

"Booking Maddison was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding day. Not only is she just a straight up sweet soul she is incredibly talented. She is thoughtful in her shot and captured all the feels day of. She catches you at your best angle, gently coaches you through and during the wedding day was right there whenever I needed her. If you are at this stage in choosing your photographer, honestly look no further you wont be disappointed and I would consider myself to be a slight perfectionist."

"she was able to capture [the  feel]"

"Maddison was amazing to work with! She was able to capture the exact feel I hoping to with our wedding photos. She was also so easy to work with. She set up multiple calls to chat through all of our questions! She also made photos fun but also kept everyone in line :). Can’t wait to have her photograph us again in the future!"

words from a planner

"Maddi and I had the pleasure of working together for a mutual client’s wedding. Needless to say, she and her team were amazing. From our first interaction she was incredibly detailed and you could tell she knew what she was doing. On the day of, she did an amazing job of making the clients feel comfortable, happy, and relaxed. Her photos captured the love and fun of the day perfectly. I will definitely recommend Maddi and her team to my clients in the future.."

"she goes the extra mile..."

"I’m going to keep this short and sweet. Maddison is an amazing human being who not only takes stunning photos and can capture a beautiful moment perfectly, but she also goes the extra mile in showing her clients that she truly cares! Maddison has taken our engagement, wedding and now baby announcement photos and we will continue to book with her [in the] future."
