As a wedding photographer based in Madison, Wisconsin and traveling worldwide, my dedication lies in capturing + preserving love stories through art. My passion is unveiling your narrative—the intricate details of your relationship, your shared dreams, and the moments that define you as a couple. Together, we'll craft a timeless collection of photographs that reflect the depth of your connection. Above all else, your experience is paramount to me. That means delivering all the best images without limitations. It means assisting you in creating a personalized timeline that aligns with your vision for the day. And most importantly, it means knowing when to offer gentle guidance to help you feel at ease in front of the camera and when to step back, allowing the natural unfolding of candid moments to be captured effortlessly.

"We could not be more in love with our photos. We both noted that taking pictures was effortless, we never got tired of being in front of the camera because Mariah made the experience as comfortable, genuine, free-flowing, and "in-the-moment" as possible. Our time doing couples portraits was one of our favorite parts of wedding day because we just got to enjoy the little moments between the two of us while Mariah captured that authenticity, emotion, and love between us. We feel those same emotions coming through as we look at our photos, which is so special to us - and a true testament to the talent, skill, and beauty of Mariah's work!"

She checked in frequently and was so easy to communicate with. She goes above and beyond for her people. As for our wedding day, we owe how seamless the day went to her.

You can tell she genuinely cares about each of her clients and their unique story-- and we weren't just another number to her.

"I have been trying to think of the right words to say thank you but I simply just cannot. These photos are so beautiful. We cried looking through them all over again. It’s absolutely incredible how you literally captured exactly how the day felt in still frames. As I have looked through these pictures with family and friends, every single time I find myself saying, “This is how it felt! You can just feel the day.” Which is EXACTLY what we wanted with our wedding photographer. You exceeded our expectations and we would not have wanted anyone else to have photographed our day. I feel so emotional just writing this out because I didn’t know how much this would mean, but you truly gave us lifetime memories that allow us to relive the day exactly the way it was."
