wedding + elopement photographer

I believe that your wedding day shouldn't be all about the photos.
The photos should be all about your wedding day!

MINNESOTA BASED
DESTINATION WEDDING
& ELOPEMENT  PHOTOGRAPHER

Timeless + DOCUMENTARY + INTENTIONAL

Let's face it, time is a thief. It seems that years come and go faster as we grow, and before we know it our cherished life moments become old photographs. This is why my job is so important to me. It truly is the biggest honor to document who matters to you, what matters to you, and wrap them into timeless memories. 

You already are so much more to me than just another business transaction. You deserve someone who truly cares about you two and your day!

Your photographer, biggest fan, third-wheel, timeline organizer, location scouter, advice giver, friend, and so much more!

I take a documentary approach to shooting wedding days. While traditional wedding photography typically involves more posed and formal photos, I focus on capturing your day as it naturally unfolds.
 
It’s easy for a wedding day to lose its core value. Its essence. And it can start to become more about satisfying others and getting the “picture-perfect” photos. When that happens, the day can quickly start to feel like a chore, a production or a photoshoot. In my personal opinion, that is the complete opposite of what getting married should be about. I want your photos to take you back in time. Where all of the emotions and happy memories come flooding back! I want to capture genuine, candid reactions that aren’t staged. Such as; The belly laughs where maybe too many teeth may show, but you were so. dang. happy. The hugs you held so tight as you embraced those most special to you. The many happy tears that roll down yours and your loved ones cheeks as you achieve a new milestone in your lives together. I want your photo gallery to tell your UNIQUE story from beginning to end!

However, if you’d like to step aside for designated couples photos I will gladly help guide you into natural prompts and editorial poses. Taking photos can be intimidating, I totally get that! With me, it truly is so easy to be in front of the camera. I promise, as long as you are willing to relax, have positive attitudes and trust me with the process, we will get INCREDIBLE photos together! 

I’d like to also mention this is a safe space for all LGBTQIA couples. I believe love is love, and that is exactly what I will document for you!

hello friend!

If I could give Madison more
 than five stars I would!

The second we had our first consultation with Madison we knew she was the one! She is so personable and made us feel less stressed about our wedding day. My husband and I do not take professional photos... ever but when we had our engagement session, she made us feel like pros! Before our wedding day Madison helped us with our timeline and honestly answered and gave her opinion on almost everything wedding related that we asked. On our special day, Madison made it so fun, kept us on our timeline, made not only us but our families and wedding party feel special. The love and emotions she captured were beyond anything we could have asked for. Invest in Madison!! She is truly amazing at what she does and goes above and beyond for you as a couple. We loved having her be a part of our special day and will now be a part of it forever! We are so grateful to have these photos for the rest of our lives :)

Madison has the most
infectious energy & positivity that
immediately put us at ease.

Madison was absolutely everything we hoped for in a photographer and MORE. She was very organized starting with our initial meet-up through our wedding day, and was one of the few constants we could rely on while planning through the pandemic. It was so nice to know that no matter what our wedding day ended up looking like we would have beautiful photos to cherish forever! My husband and I had limited experience getting our photos taken professionally, so we were a bit nervous, but Madison has the most infectious energy and positivity that immediately put us at ease. Our photos feel so natural and authentic to us. You will not be disappointed! She genuinely cares so much about her art AND the couples she works with. She eagerly gives her professional opinions when you need/ask for them but also is very committed to making sure you get what you want on your day. Side note to prove she’s the best: my hair had gotten a little flat after being outside in the mist prior to our ceremony, and Madison volunteered to re-curl my hair for me! And it looked great :) All this to say, she goes above and beyond to make sure your wedding day is PERFECT. Please hire her so I can stalk more dreamy wedding photos on her Instagram in the future

She made the experience so fun, so seamless, & stress- free!

Cannot recommend enough! My fiancé and I have struggled to plan our wedding - just overwhelmed with all the choices in vendors. I stumbled across Madison’s instagram and instantly fell in love with her editing style. After the first meeting and hearing how invested she is in working with her clients, we were hooked. Madison took our engagement photos- the first real decision we made in our wedding planning and dare I say the best! She made the experience so fun, so seamless, and stress- free! She truly goes above and beyond. In fact, Madison has become our number one motivation in planning the rest of our wedding because we want to hurry up and lock her in for the wedding before she gets booked up!!!!

Her ability to capture very candid interactions is truly unmatched!

I stumbled upon Madison’s photography through The Knot and I am SO HAPPY THAT I DID. I could see in her photos that her couples truly appeared genuine, happy, comfortable, and not staged. She is so good at putting her couples at ease and made the experience fun. Her ability to capture very candid interactions is truly unmatched! She also shared the best advise and tidbits of information along the way, and set a complete and detailed timeline for our elopement day and fully vetted ALL of the logistics. She even scouted the location and suggested another location- which ended up being even better than the original plan, and she switched around the timeline to fit everything in! She is honestly the reason we had the best (and smoothest/stress-free) wedding day ever, and it was such a pleasure to work with her (and her husband, Gabe!) We will have the coolest photos and memories to last a lifetime. Do yourself a favor and hire Madison now!!

We are talking magazine
 worthy images!

We are at a loss for words at how incredible and professional Madison was throughout our entire experience. Not only did she give us the most amazing pictures we could have asked for (I mean we are talking magazine worthy images!) but she also was SO easy and fun to work with. My husband, who HATES taking photos, was genuinely having so much fun taking pictures with her. Madison is an absolute joy and I couldn’t imagine having anyone else documenting our special day. If you want to be sure that you are going to get your dream wedding photos, Madison is an easy choice!!

Madison went so far above
and beyond as a photographer! 

Hiring Madison as our wedding photographer was the single best decision I made about our wedding. With her, you get so much more than just a photographer. You get a kind human who cares about you as a couple and not just as a client. Madison is organized and super prepared! She takes her role so seriously and is so great at communicating with you from the day you book to the day you get your photos back! Madison makes you feel so comfortable and at ease that getting photos taken becomes truly just a fun time. Like hanging out with a friend who happens to have a camera! When I look at our elopement and engagement photos from Madison, I think “that was such a fun memory" not just a good photo of us posing for a photo. Even my husband who really hates getting photos taken was like “that was actually really fun.” I never knew how important it would be to have good memories associated with our photos until Madison made that happen. Madison went so far above and beyond as a photographer! She helped us with the timeline for our day to make sure we got all the photos we wanted. When we settled on a sunrise elopement and I couldn’t find anyone to do my makeup at 5am, she hooked me up with an eyelash artist who got me in for lashes so I could do my own makeup but still have amazing lashes. She helped us pick out outfits for our engagement photos to make sure we were comfortable and coordinated. Madison truly became a friend.

She went above and beyond every step of the way

Madison is an amazing photographer – we couldn't be happier with our wedding photos and would HIGHLY recommend her! During photo sessions, Madison made sure we were always comfortable, able to be ourselves, and actually having fun, which shines through in all of our engagement and wedding photos. She is also very communicative and a great resource for all things wedding planning. She went above and beyond every step of the way – including helping pick out outfits / locations for our engagement photos, and essentially coordinating our entire plan and day-of timeline for our wedding day. Leading up to and on our wedding day, she was such a calming presence while also psyching us up and making sure we were having fun with as little stress as possible. Our photos capture us and our wedding day perfectly, and we are so grateful & happy we worked with Madison for our wedding!

 Our photos are timeless and so beautifully captured.

When searching for wedding photographers, I came across Madison Delaney Photography. And instantly after seeing her incredible work she was the only wedding photographer I wanted to capture our wedding! Madison is the best! We were blown away by Madison's talent when we got our engagement and wedding photos back. In addition to being incredibly reliable, Madison is also very organized. Always answering questions/emails in a timely manner and offering advice! She helped so much with the wedding planning side of things too. With helping coordinate with us a very detailed time plan for our wedding day. She goes above and beyond with all the help she provides during the whole wedding planning. Madison really listens to your vision and how you want your photographs to be and then she exceeds that by a million! I could go on and on about how wonderful Madison is as a photographer and as a human. She has such a fun and kind personality. Even my husband who hates taking photos, loved taking them with Madison because she makes it so effortless and fun! On the wedding day, it felt more like having a close friend with you than someone just being your wedding photographer! It has been a year since our wedding and we look back at our photos all the time and say how lucky we are to have had Madison. Our photos are timeless and so beautifully captured.

You will be thrilled and blessed to book with someone as wonderful as her

I won a giveaway with Madison, and she went truly above and beyond when she didn’t have to! She spent hours taking our photos and sent over a full gallery that was STUNNING. Also, when my photographer could no longer shoot my wedding, she went out of her way to post in different photographer groups and went out of her way to reach out to people she knew and recommended! She wasn’t available because she was already booked. Not many people would be SO kind to go out of their way and do this for someone they barely know. Madison is a beautiful soul, inside and out. You will be thrilled and blessed to book with someone as wonderful as her, plus her work is remarkable! WIN WIN!
