welcome

xoxo, Maddie

Congratulations on your engagement! I'm so honored that you've decided to get in touch, and I'm beyond excited to be a part of this time in your life.

I'm Madeleine, a fine art wedding  photographer based in Colorado.  Being a fine art wedding photographer means that I love telling the unique story of your day in a way that is visually artistic. From the smallest of details to slyest stolen kiss, my goal is that you'll look back at your wedding pictures in 20 years, and remember it as if it were yesterday. 

Throughout this page, you will find more information on pricing, as well as the overall wedding experience. If you have any questions at all, don't be afraid to ask! Feel free to email any questions to hello@madeleineryanphoto.com

FROM PAST WEDDING CLIENTS

"Maddie is amazing. She captured the exact images I had in my head and made us feel so comfortable in the process. "

the process

My job as a wedding photographer is much more than simply showing up on your wedding day to take a pictures. From the first email until the final delivery of your photos, I will be there to guide you throughout the process to ensure the best experience possible. 

Because making meaningful connections with my clients is a huge priority, I like to plan a coffee shop "first-date" to better get to know each other. We'll sip on coffee and talk about your wedding plans, while you can ask me any additional questions you might have! If you don't live in Colorado, no worries! We can have our "first date" over Skype. :) 

Once you have decided on booking, I'll send you an online contract to sign, where you will also pay your 50% booking retainer. (The remainder balance is due 4 weeks before your wedding date.)

2-4 weeks before your wedding date, we will have another meeting (over the phone or in person) to ensure that everything is ready to go for your big day!

engagement sessions

 The engagement session is one of my favorite parts of the wedding process because it allows us to really get to know each other more before your big day! You will learn how I shoot and pose as a photographer, and I will learn more about you and your preferences. Plus, you’ll feel like such a pro in front of the camera by the time your wedding arrives because of the practice you get during your engagement session. 

What equipment do you shoot with?

I shoot using both digital and film format. For digital photos, I use professional grade Canon camera bodies and lenses (5D Mark III). For film photos, I use a Mamiya 645 medium format camera, with Fuji or Kodak Portra film stock. 

frequently asked questions

What is your backup plan for accidents/equiptment failure, etc.?

Because a wedding day only happens once, I carry two camera bodies and use dual-slot memory cards at all times during weddings. After the wedding, I store your photos on an external hard drive, as well as online backup.

frequently asked questions

How long does it take to receive my photos?

You will receive your final online gallery 8-10 weeks following your wedding date. While you're waiting for your gallery, I will post online previews on social media!
