behind the camera...
Hello there! I am so happy you have found me! My name is Madeleine. I am a portrait and wedding photographer based in Phoenix, Arizona and soon to be Denver, Colorado (but if you're not in Arizona or Colorado, not a problem - let's discuss travel!). You can usually find me in the plant section of any store, or buying soil at Home Depot. I spend my free time collecting cameras, building campfires, and making it my personal mission to pet as many animals as possible on any given day. I am deeply inspired by my wonderment for nature, and I believe each person's unique story is an expression of mother nature's beauty and complexity. Photography allows me to express my appreciation for all things living on this planet.
We are in this photographing process together. My goal is to create a comfortable environment for my clients where you can let your true self emerge, through prompts and questions that evoke genuine emotion instead of stiff poses. I want you to look back on your photos and relive each precious moment in detail and remember exactly how you felt during that time in your life.
I guide each client through the entire process. I am here for it all, from choosing a location, to what to wear, to how to feel comfortable in front of the camera. Photography is so much more to me than snapping and delivering pictures. I live for the artistic process, and making your session an uplifting and unforgettable experience. Please fill out my contact form if you would like to chat more about booking your session. I can’t wait to create photographs together!
