My husband and I decided last minute to get married on an already planned vacation. One look at Maddie's website and we were totally sold. We contacted her with three weeks until the actual wedding day, which seems stressful, but Maddie made it SO EASY. My husband and I talked later about how amazed we were that we didn't feel nervous the entire day. She made us feel super relaxed and awesome, which truly showed in the photos. They were seriously STUNNING and captured us perfectly, and even got some super adorable photos of our dog. She is incredibly talented, helpful, energetic, and worth every penny.
Maddie is an incredible destination wedding photographer! We had a 40 person destination wedding in Costa Rica and Maddie was a total pro! She was organized, thorough, and extremely thoughtful. She has a unique style and her love of nature and people shines through in her photography. She is not only the best photographer I know but is also just a really great human. I didn't know Maddie before she took our photos but we are genuine friends now and I hope we remain friends for a long time. Maddie loves weddings and has a true passion for what she does - and it shows in the quality of her work.
"I knew she'd be awesome but I guess I wasn't prepared for what a pro she was. She wore these holster like things across her body with cameras attached and switched memory cards and lenses like a solider would change a rifle clip. She rolled her pants up and got in the muddy water to capture so amazing shots and directed our wedding in such a seamless manner that felt SO natural! Maddie was a huge part of our wedding because she was the only one there aside from me and my husband but she naturally blended into the background and allowed us to spend our wedding day focusing on each other. I can't recommend Maddie enough!!"
"Maddie helped form our wedding day into a unique and memorable day that completely reflected our relationship. The pictures are worth so much more than any number of words. They so eloquently capture the essence of our love for each other and honestly we couldn't be any happier. She eased any anxiety or worries we may have had. She is a true professional from start to finish, she takes the time to really get to know you and want you want out of the experience. Her photo taking skills are second to none and she knows exactly how to get the best out of you on your day. Thank you, thank you, thank you, is all we can say!"
"I'm SO thankful we found Maddie Mae when we did. She was the perfect addition to our special day and I can't imagine it without her! She took our average wedding and kicked it into high adventure mode making our day phenomenal! She was with us every step of the way and kept us all laughing and relaxed—even having a pep talk while working in -10 windchill in the high altitude for the most epic pictures. Hire her and trust her—she is beyond anything we could imagine for a elopement photographer and we couldn't of imagined our day without her. Maddie made our wedding an adventure and a day we will never forget!"
"In late June of this year my husband and I decided we didn’t want to wait any longer to be married and knew we wanted something unique and fun. I am so thankful we found Maddie. Her work is so beautiful. After browsing her blog we knew we had to have her take our photos. We gave her the reins on where exactly to have our ceremony in the park and she DID NOT DISAPPOINT! She wasted no time and drove an hour out of her way just to find the perfect location. On the day of the wedding she showed up at 6am (bless her soul) and the day was perfect. She has a heart of gold and an amazing personality. She does not disappoint!"
"Sometimes it's clear when someone has found their calling in life. So so true for Maddie. She was absolutely amazing. Her work speaks for itself. Gorgeous, magazine ready photos. But beyond that, she cares about your wedding day and works to make your vision a reality. My husband hates posing for photos but she made it so natural and fun that he enjoyed every minute of it on our wedding day. Thank you Maddie for giving us the best day ever - and amazing photos to remember it by."
"Maddie could not have made our winter elopement more special... she is truly a fantastic photographer. She made my husband and I feel very at ease in front of the camera, which really reflects in the tone of the pictures. She helped me brainstorm the shoot and had tons of recommendations on vendors as well. If you are looking for an amazing outdoor photographer for your special day, Maddie will climb any mountain to make your dream a reality!"
