Hey, I’m Maddie Moree! (Pronounced like: More-eeeeee)

You’re most likely here on my site because you’re getting MARRIED!

Wooowoooowoooo! And you’re looking for a wedding photographer. Now, I’m going to make an assumption…

You want to know if we’ll get along/have similar styles/drink wine together.

Yes? Yes? And more yes?

Can you relate to the any/all of the below statements? 

1. I’d rather meet at a bar than a coffee shop. I won’t judge if you won’t. 😉 

2. Sex and the City is so freaking relatable to real life. I can’t help but reference certain situations…sorry not sorry. Can you believe that show was shot in the late 90s?? 

3. Listening to T Sweezy makes me bust a move. Haters gonna hate! Just shake it off! 

4. Binge watching goofy tv shows constitutes a great date day…you can never just watch one…I’m currently watching The Office. Yes, I know it’s ridiculous I haven’t seen it before. I’m working on ittttt! 

5. Picture-wise, I care more that me and my fiancé look like ourselves as a couple than some weird pose I found on a blog where we are looking all serious and there’s a weird teepee behind us.

(Ya know, just as an example…But for real, I just don’t get those. Is the teepee an alter?? Are we camping? And, I just want to ask the bride why she is so unhappy looking when it’s her wedding day?! Because, you know, this isn’t a magazine. It’s your life. And that picture in the long run means a lot LESS when you have other ones like the moment your dad kisses you on the cheek before he walks you down the aisle or like when your mom is holding back tears as she zips your wedding dress…).

I’m about the real, heartfelt moments. Without those, you’re just having a big ol’ party with some cake and a teepee next to it. 

6.  My wedding day will be, without a doubt, a representation of me and my fiancé. Because you know what?! We’re weird. And I like champagne all the time…with all the food. And those hi-low dresses are kinda fucking awesome. And, just so we’re clear, bacon donuts will need to happen at some point in the day.   There’s no judgement and no keeping up with the Joneses here because life’s too short and what we’re jonesin’ for…

is the only thing that matters.

Sure, Maddie, we’ll probably get along, BUT what about the pictures??

The pictures are going to be like what you see on the site. Candid, unposed, sweet moments that make you go “awwww.”

At the end of the day, does anything else matter?

But…in case you’re still worried:

Do you have a professional camera?


Do you have more than one professional camera in case something awful happens?


Have you shot weddings before?


We will still have those formal shots with my family, right??


Have you shot at my venue before?

…Maybe? Depends on where it is. Email me, and I’ll let you know. 🙂 maddie@maddiemoree.com

Does it matter if you have or haven’t?

Not really. It’s more for your peace of mind. But just know that if I haven’t shot there before, seeing the venue for the first time is THE BEST! I get so many ideas on where to shoot just taking a look around! It gets my creative juices flowing!! 😀 

Do you have a second shooter with you?

If you add that on to a package. Otherwise, it’s me and a handy assistant. 😉

My bff used this photographer, and she really liked them…

Wait, what’s your question? I know you’re looking at several photographers, getting a feel for them and their look, and comparing budgets. But the thing is, every (and I mean EVERY) photographer is different. Their eye at that scene is totally different than my eye. So, at this point you have to go with your gut and whoever fits your style. And, hey, I support that. I just want your day to be perfect. Period. Even if that’s not with me. 

Wait one more question. What’s the Yen Studios thing about?

Glad you asked. Yen Studios was my father’s commercial photography business of 35 years. We worked together for 3 years before he unexpectedly passed away. He taught me tons about life, business, and photography (though his teachings were more wax on, wax off.) Nevertheless, he was the greatest dad in the world to me. If you ask me about him, I’ll talk for hours (tears may or may not occur…probably will). 

Ok, I lied. One more…Can you give me a ballpark figure of your packages?

Sure can! My base package starts at $2599 and includes 7 hours of wedding day photography and high resolution images. Just email me, and I will send you my pricing menu. I also offer goodies like bridal sessions, engagement sessions, rehearsal dinners, and albums.

Anyways, I know this is a stressful time! It’s also a FUN time! If you have any questions, just email me. I want to be a part of your wedding as much or as little as you want me to be! And if working together leads to a friendship afterwards, I can’t wait! Did I mention the wine part? 🙂

So ask me on any of the following!

Weddings. I can gush for hours! 




The South.

And of course, some Cowboy Boots. 

I’m ready to jump when you are. Book your date today! 🙂
