meet your wedding photographer & videographer
hi, hello! i’m maddie. i’m thrilled that you’re here and are interested in learning more about me. it means that you are taking the time to invest in your wedding photography and i think that’s a really beautiful, very smart thing.
i’m a washington dc-based photographer who lives for adventure and candid moments. i love being in the middle of the woods. or on a rocky beach. or in a fog-drenched valley. i grew up in the dmv but moved to the far east coast of canada after adventuring around alaska during a gap year at 19. that time of my life instilled a deep connection to and respect for the natural world that is foundational to my approach to photography. really, it’s where my photo journey started.
but i don’t like to be defined by any one thing in particular. so on the flip side of that is my love of city life, a good cocktail bar, and designer pieces. before returning to dc, i lived in downtown toronto and worked in fashion. it was there that i realized i could be more than a hobbyist photographer. so i took everything i learned and grew to love from my years living in canada, and returned to the city that had always been home.
i brought andrew back with me and married him five years later during peak pandemic. we have two incredible dogs, a ridiculous cat, and more love than we can put into words. when i'm not shooting, i'm helping renovate our house and turning it into a home. and when i'm not doing that, i'm probably annoying our neighbors, blasting taylor swift.
i’m andrew, your favorite canadian.
i moved to dc with maddie in 2016 and love to call the city home. there is something special about washington that pulled me in. could be the historic architecture. or maybe it’s the smithsonian. it’s definitely the cultural experiences waiting just around every corner. if i’m being honest, it’s all of the above and so much more.
before moving to the states, the majority of my life was spent on the east coast of canada. i grew up in saint john, new brunswisk and started carrying a camera everywhere i went from the age of 12. it shot horribly low-res video, but damn was i ever proud of what i created with it. that little handheld camera sparked a passion that has carried through my entire life.
fast forward to today. i’m very into experimental filmmaking and immersive experiences. i want people to feel like they’re part of the story. like they were there, even if they were a thousand miles away. that drive probably comes from being far from home but it’s served me and our clients well.
on my off days, i enjoy a good glass of wine, playing with our dogs, kiah and wallace, and tackling weekend projects around the house. jk – i’m currently building our kitchen and it takes much longer than just a weekend. check back in a few months to see what’s next. ;)
