Mads has a way of making sure that the personality of you and your new spouse shine through every pose and that your relationship is featured in every photo…There are so many genuinely beautiful photos that we will never even be able to use them all! I am still in love with her woodsy and moody Pacific Northwest inspired style, it's exactly what we wanted out of our gallery….As someone who has experience in working with some extremely talented and experienced wedding industry professionals, I can honestly say that Mads is more than you could ever ask for in a wedding photographer. If you want someone who will embrace and support you at every turn, you simply can't go wrong with Madeline Rose Photography.

Madeline is a GEM! She will be a complete asset for your wedding. She probably the most important part to your big day (second to your bride/groom of course). Not only do you KNOW, with the most confidence, that you're going to have the most beautiful pictures captured from the biggest day of your life when working with her, but the experience you get from working with her is unmatched.…she makes you feel so special and at ease the entire time. Not only is she just a joy to be around, but she does an amazing job of organizing all the details leading up to your wedding.She went above and beyond by gathering beautiful fall leaves on her own time, to bring to my wedding in order to get the perfect picture! I mean, come on! …The entire service that she provides, even down to the little details when she delivers your photos to you is one of a kind. She literally doesn't miss a beat. And have I mentioned how talented she is?!

All brides know the stress that comes with wedding planning. You spend hours researching vendors, setting up phone calls, only to be left with a “meh” feeling. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been on the phone with a potential vendor where the vibe was off or it was too much of a sales pitch. Thank you, Next. In comes my saving grace and her name is MADS. I took notice of her work on Instagram and knew I had to connect with her. My fiancé also gave the stamp of approval after seeing her work (Brides- Isn’t it rare when you actually agree on anything wedding related? It was a good sign!) We set up a FaceTime and immediately got a sense of someone who was genuine, easygoing, and kind. When we got off the phone with her, my fiancé said to me, “Now if only we can find the rest of our vendors to be like Mads.” It was the easiest decision we made in hiring Mads as our photographer. Since we are getting married in California, we wanted to take our engagement photos in Boston (my fiancé’s hometown). I did want to note that we reached out to her fairly last minute. She was working in New York but worked with our schedule to make it happen while we were in town! We couldn’t be happier with our photos. As two people who have never done any type of photoshoot before, we felt very comfortable with Mads right away. It really felt like a group of friends hanging and exploring Boston for the day. We joked around that we needed to be on the same coast so we could do this all the time. I'm excited to hear that she is moving to Oregon and I can’t wait for west coast brides to see her talent! Bottom line folks, Mads is as real as it gets and her photos are real. And to Mads, if there is a way you can somehow cater, DJ, coordinate, do my hair and make-up, I’d love to hire you for it all because you were that amazing to work with.

When we were looking for a wedding photographer, my now-husband and I were really excited about having beautiful photos, but were also pretty nervous because we aren’t exactly comfortable in front of a camera. Like, at all. Enter Mads! She’s upbeat, energetic, and is fantastic at posing you in a way that doesn’t look/feel like posing. We wanted to have a simple wedding with photos that really felt like us (no bridal party, getting ready at home, no formal dances, etc). Some vendors kind of made us feel like that wasn’t “enough” but Mads was always enthusiastic about our plan and was encouraging every step of the way. She’s organized, kind, fun, and captures gorgeous images while making you feel confident. When you choose Mads you’ll have a genuine, caring photographer, absolutely no photo-related stress, and more amazing photos than you can even print. We loved her, our guests totally loved her, and honestly I just wish we could go back to the beginning and do it all over again with her!

Madeline was a joy to work with. From our first emails her communication was beyond helpful, and really held our hand through the whole process from beginning to end (what should I wear for our engagement shoot? what should he wear? where do we go?). We had no idea what it would be like spending time in front of the camera that first day - and it was beyond fun (and romantic!). Mads diffused all awkwardness (including awkward faces and awkward limbs) and guided us on an incredible journey resulting in photos we will cherish forever. And that was all even before our wedding!
On the day of the wedding, Mads was prompt as always, and was a really nice positive & calm presence to have around (things can get tense on the big day!). Especially in our small wedding, she was an integral part of the day. All day I knew I never had to worry about photos - Mads was on it. And the results - WOW. She absolutely nailed it. They are beautiful. She brings out the stunning natural beauty in every one of her subjects, we were awed, and still feel so lucky that we were able to have Mads as our photographer. She is a true master of her craft - just look at her photos and you know. I know that one day I'll be able to say "and we got to have Mads way back then!". I still look at our engagement and wedding photos every day, and I cherish them with all my heart. Thank you Mads for lending us your invaluable gifts.

Mads was amazing to work with and I would recommend her to anyone! By some miracle, she was available to shoot our last minute City Hall elopement on a Monday in December. I called her just a few days before the wedding and by the time Monday rolled around, I felt like we’d known each other for a long time. She made me and my camera shy husband feel so comfortable and special on our big day. She truly went above and beyond—even with such short notice, she planned the perfect photo shoot around the city with no detail spared. And best of all, the pictures turned out AMAZING!!!! I could go on and on about Mads. She is the best and we are so lucky that she was part of our day.

Honestly, if you're looking at any photographer other than Mads, you are doing it wrong. Not only is she a consummate professional that will take charge, ensure a smooth event, and provide you with the highest quality results, she's a great all-around person. She made herself available at any time prior to assist with decorations, food, colors, or anything we needed advice on. She knows the wedding industry inside and out and understands exactly what it takes to make a wedding/event go smoothly. The quality of her photos speaks for themselves, and we could not be happier with the results.
