California Wedding Photographer

Learn More ⟹

My team and I specialize in modern, romantic and crisp photos (digital and film!) — combining an international feel with an intimate experience that makes you feel confident, prepared and ready to celebrate the two of you. You could say it’s magical, but really, we’re just good at communicating, organizing and doing our thing — connecting with other humans and documenting their love stories. 

I’m Madison, by the way, a traveling California wedding photographer based near Sacramento. 

Let’s Take Photos That Are Just As Timeless. 

Your Love Will Never Go Out Of Style. 

Your Love Will Never Go Out Of Style. 

p.s. i'm all in on the day that's all about you.

“To be your friend was all I ever wanted; to be your lover was all I ever dreamed.”

“To be your friend was all I ever wanted; to be your lover was all I ever dreamed.”

I’m your guide — from posing to locations and loving every element of your wedding day; I’ll be there to take the stress off of your shoulders. Working hand-in-hand with the two of you and your wedding planner is a part of this whole process.


I edit and deliver every single image possible (minus the occasional blink or blur) so you can relive every moment and detail from your day and the emotions too. Comprehensive wedding galleries > condensed galleries.


I’m an artist AND people person, which means I care not only about what I do, but about who you are. I want what you want, and I’ll accommodate you and advocate for your vision while giving you the best of my craft.

Hiiii! Madison here.

Meet the team ⟹

I’m also one half of the husband and wife wedding photography team who is unafraid of guiding, encouraging and elevating you throughout this wedding experience. With us, you can expect a personalized, professional and playful approach that lets you just sit back and relax while we take care of business. Timelines, planning advice, vendor referrals, next-day sneak peeks — involved is an understatement around here. 

You caught me. Iced coffee in hand, dog at my side, editing away at our photography studio in Loomis and answering texts from couples. I photograph weddings, portraits and brands too. My far-off dream is to own a little farm where my dog, Bailey, can be the official greeter. My daydream, though, well, you read about that a second ago; I’m a Sacramento photographer, dog lover and studio owner.
