THERE IS A COMMON MISCONCEPTION that there has to be a reason to book a photo session — a milestone, an engagement, an announcement, and so on...
and I couldn't disagree more.
There is beauty in celebrating the season you're in whether it it means moving on to your next step or savoring every second of the space you're in now.
Your first dates. Your grocery trips. Your travels. Your engagements. Your lazy Friday nights. Your wild weekends. Your slow mornings. Your coffee shop hangs. Your first dog. Your next home.
You may have looked into booking a couples session before. You might have been overwhelmed at the package options and the time limits and the number of images you get.
Forget everything you've ever learned about being photographed. We won't need that here.
Each session is built out on a custom basis — meaning we tailor locations, timelines, and vibes 100% to you and your partner.
Your session can be anywhere, but I highly encourage a place that you already love. The perks to this are that it’s likely a location that you already feel comfortable in and makes you happy. It’s likely also a place that holds some sentimental value, which will make these photos that much sweeter.
It’s 10000% okay. Want the truth? Nothing about being photographed feels like a natural experience. It just doesn’t. But my job is to make you feel as comfortable as possible and guide you along the way.
I promise every person feels like this and still walks away with incredible photos.
Rule number one: wear something you feel good in.
Don’t feel like you have to go out a buy something new. More often than not, something you shine in is already in your closet. Patterns and textures add a lot of interest to photos, but be careful when selecting as we don’t want to distract too much from the feeling of the photos.
Drawing a total blank? Neutrals always photograph well and I am always available for you to text me your outfit ideas until we land on one that we know is the one.
YES. YES. YES. I love in-home sessions for so many reasons. A session like this will never look like anyone else’s and it’s a super easy way to include any and all pets. For these, we’ll communicate a lot in advance to select spaces we think will work the best and pick the right times based on lighting.
Mady is your ideal photographer. She’s a vibrant and energetic creative who’s quickly inspired by her couples and environment — exactly what you want in an engagement or wedding photographer. She came to Manhattan to shoot with us and easily navigated the busy city and found the perfect locations for us to shoot in. Look no further.
