KARA & BEN
Could not recommend this gal more! She was so organised and professional, but also incredibly easy going. She was fun, flexible and creative - it truly felt like having a friend take our photos. The sneak peaks are nothing short of amazing and true to the bright and happy style that attracted me to Maddy’s work. Thank you so much!
THE BROWN FAMILY
We have continuously returned to Madelyn for family photos with her excellent eye for detail, professionalism, and unending patience. No ideas are too outrageous, no details too small and no children too boisterous. Madelyn is kind, genuine and beyond talented. Our family photos are one of the highlights of my year, every year. No doubt she'll hear from me again soon!
KELLY & CHRIS
At the end of the day all you have to remember your wedding by are the photos and Madelyn definitely exceeded our expectations. We are over the moon with our images, she made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera and captured all the special moments which we will treasure forever. To be honest, we hardly knew she was there!
How soon should I book?
As soon as you have discussed a tentative date and location, which is typically 12+ months in advance, especially for peak season dates (Autumn-Spring). Your venue, photographer and celebrant should be the first three things you secure.
Do you travel?
Yes! I travel frequently and have photographed across many regions in Central Queensland as well as Fiji, Heron Island, Brisbane surrounds, Mackay, Emerald and Toowoomba. I would love to be part of your special day wherever that may be.
Why should we book you?
As your photographer I don’t just show up on the day, take photos and leave a few hours later. I want to capture your wedding in a way that tells your unique story – the little details, fleeting moments and people you love. I’ll also be your planning consultant, time keeper, unofficial bridesmaid, family herder and hopefully friend for years to come.
What happens after we've booked?
If we haven’t met before, I’ll arrange to catch up with you for coffee to discuss your plans for the day and share some of my best photography tips. Then I’ll provide your welcome packet (full of planning advice), product information and keep in touch in the lead up to the wedding.
How long is it until we get our images back?
My emphasis as a photographer is on quality over quantity. I’ll post a sneak peek within 48 hours (unless otherwise requested), email a private preview gallery a few weeks later and delivery of your full package will take approximately 8-12 weeks.
Should we book an engagement shoot?
Generally the couples that are most apprehensive about booking an engagement session would benefit the most! It is great opportunity to get comfortable in front of the camera, trial your plans and use ideas that didn't quite make it to the wedding (pet/family/adventurous photos encouraged!).
How far in advance should I book a session?
Sessions typically book 3 months in advance, with October-December dates booking especially quickly being the lead up to Christmas. For maternity and time-dependent sessions, I suggest booking as soon as possible to ensure availability.
Do you choose the locations of your shoots?
I am frequently scouting and finding new beautiful locations in our local area, but any input you may have for your session is welcomed so feel free to share your ideas. If you're unsure I can provide suggestions to help decide on a look for your photos.
What should we bring and wear?
Upon booking my clients receive a styling guide and session preparation tips to make sure all your questions are answered. I also have a list of local businesses I can recommend including makeup artists, hair stylists and florists to help bring your vision to life.
How long does it take to get our images back?
Most sessions have a turnaround of approximately 4 weeks for full galleries. In addition to this, keep in mind any extra time you may need to order and receive products if you have a specific deadline to work towards.
Do we have to order print products through you?
I supply a print release with each booking, but I highly recommend ordering products through professional vendors. Your photos are forever so I encourage you to let me help create keepsakes worthy of being displayed and passed down for generations.
