When my dad gifted me his camera two years ago - this sparked my passion for photography. I went on to study photography and began by shooting landscapes, which then led to me taking photos of varying styles.

I am a hopeless romantic - I LOVE, love - so when I was asked to shoot for a friend’s wedding, I jumped at the opportunity. Weddings have since become my signature service offering, and Love Captured by Maddy came to fruition.

Love Captured by Maddy specialises in documentary style photography - those un-posed and raw moments which exude real emotion. Shooting couples who are all loved up on their special day, the romance surrounding them, the detailing of the dresses, the beautiful florals - of course, the stunning locations - make my heart skip a beat in excitement and joy.

My love of landscape photography pairs well with my adventurous soul. I want to witness all the beauty that the world has to offer, and will go to great lengths to capture this beauty in all its forms. I particularly enjoy shooting at ‘golden hour’, which takes advantage of the stunning light at sunrise and sunset.

The gorgeous images which are captured as a result of shooting at golden hour have caused many couples to request this popular time for their own engagement or bridal shoots.
