Wedding dresses & suits pair perfectly with dirt covered boots, bouquet tucked into backpacks, and early morning trails up mountaintops. 🏔💐🥾
We believed even better than with the fancy stuff ballroom and uncomfortable heels.

My doctor asked what I’ve done to ruin my back. I assured him that is wasn’t what I’ve done, rather, it’s what I’ve seen. I slipped a disc just watching this dip.

Hey!! Maddie Mae here 👋
I can’t explain how amazing this week was—getting to meet & teach 40 aspiring adventure elopement photographers in Page, AZ for The Adventurers Workshop with @thehearnes. It’s been truly INCREDIBLE 😍
Someone messaged me on here this week asking a question I found really intriguing, “aren’t you worried about creating potential competitors?”
I think when I first started in this industry I had a mentality of scarcity—I saw other peoples success as a direct threat to myself—as if success was in limited supply and that it was better to be secretive and cagey in this competitive industry.
I think what I’ve learned over the years—but didn’t fully realize how much I had changed until someone asked me that question this week... is that my mentality these days is one of abundance.
Traveling the world has taught me that it is HUGE and vast—I think there is plenty of space and that being generous with others and celebrating others success is way more fulfilling than being threatened by it.
My point is this: people who want to learn and soak up education—and put in the work to grow their businesses are going to do so no matter what. I think if someone wants to become a successful elopement photographer, they can take the route I took and go to business school, learn marketing, and spend 10 years building their business to the point where we are at.
But what’s fulfilling to me about education is that I truly enjoy playing a role in saving someone 5-10 years of learning & struggling by sharing the things that actually worked for me. And the world needs more experienced and ethical elopement photographers that truly care about their couples and want to make their wedding days absolutely unforgettable. 🙌
I’ve gotten tons of messages this week about when the next workshop is... and while we don’t have one planned to launch this second... I do know that I personally love teaching and that I will continue educating and mentoring and helping other photographers.
So 👉 SIGN UP to get on my email list (link in story & IG profile) to be the first to be notified about education opportunities with me this year. Mentoring launching soon!! 🙌
