I'm all about the experience - and being involved from timeline planning assistance to customizing your engagement session to feel perfect for you. I'm not about withholding good images in your gallery, setting a timer for your engagement shoot, or delivering anything less than the best. Behind every photograph is all about intentionality and connection. Honest imagery and a documentary-style approach, where I step back and let you be, well, you.

for the

It's way more than snapping photos to me. I'm here to be your dress-holder, weather-woman, coffee-grabber, veil-fluffer, hype-woman, boutonniere-fixer, and so much more. 

Love,
The Urichs

She shot our engagement session at Garden of the Gods (she even patiently worked with our two pups to make sure they were included). All the images she captured on our wedding day were special and perfect. Madison is professional, communicates promptly, is patient, cheerful and so kind. 

"Madison was a dream! Hiring her to be our photographer was the best decision we made during wedding planning."

Love,
Cydney & Cole

Everyone we show always say the photos look like they are out of a magazine! So excited for our wedding date and for Madison to capture more amazing photos/moments.

"Wow! Madison is so amazing- she made us feel so comfortable during our engagement shoot and the photos turned out amazing"

Love, 
The Hetros

She captures such precious moments that we will treasure forever. On our wedding day, she was also extremely efficient. Her second shooter helped keep us on track with our shot list so we got all the combinations of people I could have wanted. Not to mention, the images she delivers are gorgeous. Madison has such talent, and we loved every minute we spent with her. Highly recommend!

"Hiring Madison as our photographer was truly the best decision we made during wedding planning. From our proposal/engagement session to a sunrise portrait shoot to our wedding day, Madison was beyond incredible, professional, easy-going, and sweet."

what couples are saying

my vows to you

Since you’re about to make some vows yourself, how bout I start with some of my own?

I vow to love your people like my own. Kindness is at the heart of what I do, and serving you means approaching everyone on your wedding day with kindness first and a servant-heart mentality. 

I vow to tell your story as honestly and authentically as it happened. No intense fabrication. Sure, I’ll fluff your dress every now and then, but I’m not about faking any moments. Your gallery will be focused on the emotions you felt in your wedding day, from reading your vows to your partner, to the hugs with loved ones you are here to celebrate you. 

I vow to be whatever you need me to be on you day. Nervous before you walk down the aisle and need a pep talk? Consider me a professional hype woman. Need a quiet moment with your family members that you haven’t seen in 4 years? I won’t be the photographer that’s butting in to your sacred moments and trying to turn them into a photoshoot. It’s just simply not my style. 

I vow to deliver you the best experience I possibly can. From including a second photographer in my packages to gifting you film, my number one goal is to make sure you not only love your wedding photos, but your full experience. You won’t find me cutting corners in either the shooting or editing process, and I deliver ALL of your good images. Your wedding day is worth more than a capped number of images per hour of coverage. 

I vow to give you a timeless gallery. No overly saturated, or incredibly warm and trendy photos. While those images are still beautiful, I prioritize giving you the most timeless gallery I can, and for me that means editing in a way that will feel natural to you when those images are framed in your hallway 40 years from now.

packages & pricing

frequently asked questions

How does the booking process work?

1. We set up a phone call via email to talk through all things wedding planning and make sure we are a good fit!

2. You'll sign a contract and a 30% deposit is due upon booking. 

3. We shoot your engagements! 

4. We plan as much you want together - I'm here to be an unlimited recourse for you

5. We get you MARRIED!

 Where are you based out of? Do you travel for weddings?

I'm based out of Colorado Springs, CO and travel all over the state for weddings. I love to travel out of state and have limited ability for these per year. Ask me about my travel packages!

What is your turnaround time?

8-10 weeks for weddings and 2-3 weeks for engagements!

How many images do you deliver?

One thing you won't find me doing is putting a cap on the number of images in your gallery or upselling. You can expect a minimum of 50 images per hour and I will always deliver all good images, even if it takes more editing time on my end. You deserve only the best!

Do you send sneak peeks?

Yup. Mhmm. Always. You can expect a sneak peek gallery within one week of your wedding. I'm just as excited to edit them as you are to see them!

Can you photoshop me?

I do not alter the way you look aside from temporary blemishes or anything that would normally not be there (pimples, bruises, bug bites, spinach in your teeth). If you are conscious about anything, please let me know and I can be mindful while we shoot. 

What is your photo backup process?

We've all heard the Tik Tok horror stories of photographers loosing wedding day images, and I'm committed to making sure my couples are never the ones to tell them.  I'm incredibly passionate about having a strong photo backup process. When I say I don't take it lightly that you are trusting me as your photographer, I mean it.

On your wedding day, I show up wearing two dual-slot mirrorless cameras. It looks super cool, I know. Dual slot means my cameras are writing to two SD cards in the camera, thus creating an immediate copy while I shoot. Once I get home, your images are backed up to three different places. I do not format/overwrite those cards until your full gallery has been delivered as an additional backup. Additionally, all of my packages include a second photographer so not only are you receiving different angles and perspectives in your final gallery, you also have a backup photographer there in case anything ever happened. 




1. Say Hello

Fill out my contact form! Once you inquire, you can expect to hear from me via email within 48 hours. I'll send you my packages and we will set up a zoom or phone call to make sure we are a good fit and so I can answer any of your questions! 

2.  The in between 

This is where it gets good. I'll share with you my wedding planning guide and if you are local, we can add on an engagement session! This is one of my favorite ways to get to know and serve my couples.

3. The big day

The one we've been waiting for. During wedding planning, we'll chat through all things you can expect from me on your wedding day. It's been said you spend the most time with your wedding photographer over any other vendors, and I don't take it lightly that you chose me to document your day. I can't wait to celebrate you!
