A Little About Me

 
 
Me in Austin, Texas

Hello!

My name is Mrs. Madeleine Stevens and I am a photographer / videographer in Austin, Texas. A little about me... After I graduated from the University of North Texas in 2015 I moved straight to Austin to begin an internship in the film industry and I've been working with media ever since. I've been a salaried photographer / videographer at a tech company, a newborn baby photographer, a film teacher, and a camp videographer. Currently Iā€™m a dialogue editor for television and film.

I know what it means to construct stories from scratch, from ideas, and how one goes about developing those stories creatively over time. It's a process. I care deeply for the projects that I work on, and I think the best artists do. 

In the end I hope that you'll let me capture your most precious life moments with excellence, authenticity and joy. 


What am I all about?

I'm a twenty-something who is a burgeoning health-nut focused on clean-eating and Crossfitting (although admittedly I'm a newbie!). 

A few of my favorite things are...

  1. Cooking with my husband, Reece

  2. Going on long walks with our goldendoodle, Puddin'

  3. Reading a good book (I just finished Mary & O'Neil by Justin Cronin)

Fun fact: My husband Reece is a software engineer and the inventor of FreePulse Patient Monitor. A few years ago I went to Nepal with him as his personal photographer / videographer to capture his startup efforts abroad. (See a few pics from our trip here and here). I love being a team with him and creating together!

Back to business: Your photos should be real.

Whether it's a graduation picture, a family portrait, an engagement session, or even a wedding photo package, your photos should be authentic to the time and space in which they were captured. Colors should be real, and so should emotions; I will do my best to bring both out. 

I focus on joy and whimsy and capturing authentic emotions. My favorite kind of photo is when I capture love in a secret or private moment... Whether it's a glance, two hands touching, a laugh, or even an embrace. Candid photos full of love and warmth are what I'm all about. 

I look forward to hearing from you and talking about your shoot. I'm flexible with dates and times so please feel free to reach out if you'd like to know more information about what a shoot with me would look like. I am based in Austin, Texas and am available to travel worldwide.
