DMV Wedding Photographer Southern Maryland Wedding Photographer


I specialize in capturing the essence of everyday life's special moments. It's not just about creating photos, it's helping you craft time capsules and heirlooms that will be cherished and passed down through generations. Feel the laughter, warmth, and genuine emotions in each photograph—a true celebration of life's joyous moments frozen in time.

but everyone calls me Maddie. I'm a southern Maryland based photographer. I've dabbled in photography for years, but officially started my business in late 2020. Since then I have captured some of the most sentimental moments for over 250 clients in the DMV area. I've got a knack for freezing those everyday magic moments and turning your love stories into something downright enchanting.

Besides being a photographer, I'm married to my best friend. I'm also a mom to both human and fur babies. I'm an absolute crime junkie, and DIY enthusiast. I love any type of pasta and have watched Greys Anatomy and SVU an unhealthy number of times because it's one of my favorite things to do.

If you also enjoy any of the things listed above, congrats.. We just became best friends!

I tend to worry about literally everything, and I'm here to tell you that our wedding was a dream, a total dream, and in no small part thanks to Madeline Palardy Photography who may genuinely be magic. She could not have made it easier or more fun...

I scheduled maternity photos with Maddie and after my baby decided to arrive early she was wonderful and understanding that life just happens like that and we were able to do newborn/day in the life photos instead. And, the comfort we felt with her in our home from Maddie ended up producing the most beautiful photos. My heart is full that she was able to capture such a special moment in my husband and I’s life. I’d recommend Maddie over and over again!
