Meet Maddie of Mad Photo & Design

Hey there, I’m Maddie, the ‘Mad’ in Mad Photo & Design. Most days you can find me chasing a messy-faced, pantless one-year-old around my home in Sioux Falls, or kicking back on the couch watching Parks and Rec with my husband, Jeff. Chances are, we’re probably eating ice cream or old Easter candy we hid from our kid. Treat yo self.

I am a wedding photographer, equal opportunity wine enthusiast, and lover of the perfect marriage between white space and a killer pop of color. 

My photography style? It’s modern, fresh and fun. I work to capture genuine emotion and excitement, whether it’s on your wedding day, for your senior pictures, or your family portrait sesh. I keep it simple and do the hard work for you, so all you have to worry about is being totally in the moment so we can capture all those amazing candid moments that happen when you’re having a blast. 

I want you to look back on your photos one, ten, 50 years from now and smile because all those sweet memories come flooding back. I want to give you images so amazing you can relive that day over and over again.

I take a limited number of new clients each year to make sure I can give my undivided attention to each and every one. I want to blow your mind, be your best friend, and create a stellar experience you always remember. I would LOVE to work with you!

Simon Says Hello.

Simon is our ham of a 1-year-old and he makes us laugh every day. He'll be a big bro in October, and we'll be busy.


Baby Girl P

We're expecting a baby girl in October, and while I love balls and trucks, I'm pretty dang pumped for headbands and pink.
