We pick up our cameras because we know how crazy good it is to find the one you want to spend your life with. We stay up late because we love dancing to Pitbull.
I’ve been telling stories since I could talk. As a kid, I was obsessed with Good Morning America, and I even wrote and drew my own newspapers on computer paper (the hot lunch menu had it’s own section), and dropped them off on my neighbors’ doorsteps. Through studying and practicing journalism, I only grew stronger in my conviction that every single person has a story worth sharing and celebrating. That love for storytelling turned visual when I started taking pictures of my cousin’s three adorable kids - Will, Eloise, and Graham - when they were born. I fell in love with capturing moments in time with a camera at their birthday parties, baptisms, and even trips to the pumpkin patch. With my cousin’s loving, persistent encouragement, and a burning desire to create a career where I loved showing up every single day, I started Morgan Madeleine Photography.
I’m talking about the love between two people. Like your kind of love!
Ryan and I met working at a local news station in Madison. It would be years before we realized what was in front of us (I tease that I could never remember his name for the longest time). We both had to overcome heartbreak, and work through trials that forced us to realize what we both deserved in our lives.
This is why we hold our role as your wedding photographers so close to our hearts. We know exactly how special it is to find the person who loves you unconditionally. Who is worthy of sharing your life. We know that it deserves to be celebrated and cherished.
We have so much fun celebrating your wedding (seriously, it is actually impossible to tell which one of us likes the dance floor more), and our excitement for your wedding day is often the topic of conversation in the evening. But we also know that what you have is about more than just your wedding day. That’s why we get to know you and your story, help bring your vision for your photos to life, make sure you actually have time to celebrate your love at your wedding, and memorialize your relationship and your memories in the most beautiful way. Because that’s what you deserve. That's what your unique, unconditional, never-take-for-granted kind of love deserves.
