Hello and welcome! I'm Maddy, the person behind the camera.
I specialize in portrait and wedding photography. I believe in creating natural images that reflect you. Your images should be items worth looking back on year after year. They should convey your emotion in that moment and tell the story of you.
My photography interest started in elementary, when I had one of those indestructible Fisher Price film cameras. I've seriously had a camera in hand for as long as I can remember.
I opened a photography studio in my hometown of Oswego, New York when I was 18 years old- talk about a learning experience. It was an amazing opportunity for growth, professionally and creatively. Now I'm on to my next adventure!
I closed my photography studio because I desired a life with more freedom, travel, and soul. I spent about 6 months traveling the US with my boyfriend, Dylan, in our 24 foot, 1990 Holiday Rambler RV.
Now I'm back in Central New York and brought all my experiences from across the country with me!
Photography allows me to combine my love for nature and incredible places with the beauty of the human body, human connection, and of course, stylish clothes.
Ivy Image Studios is where adventure meets creativity and romance. Creating beautiful images for my clients is what I strive to do.
Let's discuss capturing you.
My absolute love who is my second shooter whenever is needed.
Our RV, Bernie.

Having Maddy as the photographer for our wedding was a huge blessing... The day of the wedding ended up being the hottest day of the summer... Looking at the photos – you would never think that the day almost reached 100 degrees. And even better – throughout all the hard (and wonderful) work that Maddy did, she never complained about the heat once. It never even looked like it phased her. We went in with few ideas of what types of pictures we want, mostly just ideas and concepts from Pinterest. Maddy was great at staging the photos, and making sure that despite the craziness of the heat, every important moment of the day was captured. Her talent, kindness, passion and devotion to general photography and to her clients is what makes Maddy a catch. Every time I look at my wedding photos its like I’m living that day all over again – and that’s because of her!

Madison was very receptive to our requests for the styles and sceneries we wanted incorporated in our photographs. In addition to capturing the look and feel we were going for, Madison was present to capture each and every moment of our wedding day. We are forever grateful that we can relive these unique moments just by looking at these customized photos of our special day!

Maddy was absolutely great!! We loved having her as our wedding photographer. She was in touch with us prior to the wedding to make sure that we had all of our bases covered. On our wedding day, she was very attentive, professional and kind! She worked swiftly to make sure that we could enjoy our day, while getting amazing and quality shots at the same time! It's needless to say we were extremely impressed. ... She captured all the important moments so beautifully. We truly were honored to have her as a part of our wedding day and would recommend her to anyone and everyone!

Maddy was an excellent photographer to work with for our special day! Starting with our engagement photos, she was willing to trek all the way up and down Salmon River Falls to get the perfect shot of us. She was easy to get a hold of anytime and was willing to listen to all of our ideas when coordinating for the wedding. My husband is typically reluctant to be in front of the camera, but she made it an easy experience so both of us were comfortable. On the wedding day she was able to get plenty of awesome shots of everyone having a great time. She also took the time to take pictures of all of the decorations.... It was a pleasure to work with her and we recommend her services for any occasion!
