I'm Mady, a wedding & elopement photographer based in Raleigh, North Carolina.

I'm so glad you're here.

Weddings & elopements are sacred to me.

I'd be honored to photograph your love — honestly.

We all know that life is not a Pinterest board.

Your life deserves to be captured as it happens, even the gritty parts. Your emotions should be shown as they are, through both laughs and tears. Your connection is valuable and no prompt or pose or photoshop can make it more magical than it already is.

There is just something about photographing real moments that can't be repeated.

That's the whole point of this anyway, right?

I'm the kind of photographer

that vibes with throwing out the rulebook.

My couples value authenticity over tradition, honest imagery over stuffy poses, & fun over all else.
They aren't interested in just anyone they found on social media.
They are looking for a creative partner to document the most magical ride of their lives.
They put full trust in my craft so they can soak it all in.
My couples understand that ours is no mere transactional relationship — it's a reciprocal one & that our work together fully depends on how much we give to each other.

Is this you? let's connect.


"Mady is a true professional talent, and delightful human. My husband and I were a bit nervous to pose for photos, but within minutes she helped us feel comfortable and at ease - and encouraged us to think of it as a video instead of individual pictures. This was genius. I was drawn to Mady's work because she described herself as an 'honest photographer' and I am beyond grateful we trusted her with our wedding weekend. The photos are truly stunning and I am so glad we chose Mady for these priceless memories. We have a diverse mix of photographs with friends and family, and action shots throughout the two days we had her with us. Our guests have told us how lovely Mady was and that she fit in without being imposing or obvious."
