Madison D.

expert photographer

Hi, I’m Madison! I’m a fiery Aries, a dreamer, a hugger, a yogi, and a cat mom.

 A few of my favorite things are loose leaf tea, houseplants, the color yellow, hammocks, and music I can dance too... My favorite thing, however, is skipping through this life with camera in hand, documenting moments that make me feel something.

Photography has been a lifelong journey for me. It began in high school when my Papa gifted me his vintage Kodak 35mm film camera. I can still feel the magic that set fire in my heart when I developed my first photo in the darkroom. Pretty much like what Rose felt like when Jack taught her how to fly in the front of the Titanic…

Since then I’ve grown with the age of digital photography and earned a Fine Art degree from Michigan State University. After college I dove into the photo industry to sharpen my technique and define what makes my little artist heart sing. I’ve found I’m most inspired by garden scenery, dreamy light and simple, tender smiles. I thrive on building friendships with my clients and aim to foster a creative space where couples are free to be themselves. Then I can take the documentary approach that I adore and photograph raw, authentic moments that are uninterrupted by the presence of a camera. Heck yes! 

It became clear early in my career that weddings were a perfect fit for my tastes as a photographer. I love the buzzing energy of the families, the fresh flowers, the flowing gowns, the nerves, and certainly the ‘I DO’s’! Full disclosure I’m a sap for mushy moments, and I have a canny ability to end up on your dance floor. The couples I jive with are the bohemian dreamers out there! Flower crowns, barefoot beach weddings, and farmhouse receptions… yes please! Documenting love stories is my greatest honor as an artist. I’d love to be your friend, swoon over the tale of your love, and photograph the beginning of your happily ever after.
