DC Wedding Photographer: Getting to Know Maddie Burnett Photography
Welcome to My Blog! Meet Maddie, your new photographer best friend
Hey there, it's Maddie Burnett Photography! I am so excited that you are here to tag along on this fun-filled journey with me.
I am Maddie Burnett Williams, a wedding and couples photographer based in Washington DC!
I am a sucker for all things wedding related. I am drawn to capturing people madly in love.
I grew up in Idaho where I first started my photography journey.
During high school, I worked extra hard to save up money for my first camera! My first camera was the best and most fulfilling purchase I have ever made.
It lit a fire in me that I couldn't stop thinking about (and still can't stop thinking about!).
WHY I CHOOSE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY:
In 2020 I shadowed a photographer for the very first wedding I photographed. I fell in love with wedding photography that day. I knew that becoming a wedding photographer was the path for me, and I haven't looked back since.
I am passionate about capturing people deeply in love, and creating art that couples rave over. I love photographing memories you and your loved ones can hold onto forever.
There is so much power in photos. It feels so magical being able to freeze a moment in time and turning it into art that lasts forever.
Photos have always held a special place in my heart. I am so thankful everyday that I get to capture people on the most important day of their lives and making those memories feel tangible again.
I am EXTREMELY extroverted. Meeting new people and making new friends is what fills my cup. I am so enthusiastic about being a wedding photographer. It helps me feel a sense of purpose while also fulfilling my creative desire that burns within me. I have a deep passion for love and an insatiable desire to capture people experiencing it.
Recently, I was able to go full-time doing wedding photography and that was the most fulfilling choice I have made. I feel a sense of accomplishment and a newer and deeper understanding of others through this journey. I have always had a creative fire burning in me and photography helps me feed that fire.
There is an extreme importance in getting to know your wedding photographer on a deeper level before your wedding day. We will be spending the most important day of your life together.
My purpose in starting this blog is to show the real and raw parts of my life (and maybe some of the more embarrassing moments of my life too).
I want you to feel like you know me more than just "the girl who takes pretty pictures".
