Hi, I'm Maddy! I’m a wedding & vacation photographer based in Orlando. I am originally from Northern California (Sacramento) and still book weddings there during select dates through the year! My style is genuine -- I strive for photos that tell a story and capture a moment in time. I edit with greenery in mind and love golden tones. I want to focus on making your photos timeless instead of what may be trendy at the moment. I’m all about capturing real, raw authenticity between people. I bought my first camera in 2012 after looking for something that would take good video. I ended up practicing with photos of my family members, and the rest is history! It's been a wild ride along the years, but I've decided photography is where my heart lies. Candid photos can be some of the most beautiful photos you'll see in your lifetime. Capturing a person for who they are and finding real moments to solidify forever. What I admire so much about this market is that no photographer is the same. Everyone has different styles, approaches, editing choices. If I'm your girl, then let's do this!!!

CHEYENNE | ASSOCIATE
I never expected photography to have such an impact on my life. It seems like such a straightforward form of creating, but it’s so much more than that. I get to meet new people, make new friends, learn and grow with those friends, and create something that’s unique to me. Something I can actually stamp my name on and feel proud of. It’s amazing to be a part of a community that helps each other grow and learn, that doesn’t try to break down competition or ruin reputations. I never ever thought I would be able to photograph as a full-time job, but that concept has actually come to fruition, and I’m still in shock that it was ever even possible. It makes me happy, and I’d like to share that feeling with anyone I can!

I am so happy you're here! My name is Jazmin Abigail Bolsover I am inspired by light, love, and all of the color 🌈 I'm a small town gal whose a total extroverted introvert, but I make for the best professional third wheel. I'm married to my high school sweetheart, we've been together 10 years and I haven't gotten tired of him yet (; I am a mom to a rambunctious 3 year old, Camila Isabella and my 6 month old, Brailey May!! I love being behind the camera capturing authentic moments. I went to school with the end goal of being an elementary school teacher, but ultimately pursued my passion of photography. Life is so unpredictable I would have never thought I'd be where I am now!

How are you shooting California weddings in 2022 & beyond?
I have select weddings booked this year in California due to my move. I will be traveling back for each one & staying with family. I am making sure to fly in at least a full day before so there are no delays! I am also offering discounted associate shooters for any weddings in California moving forward, if I don't have your date available!
Do you travel?
YEP! I travel 30 miles from my home area at no cost to you. Each mile after is $0.50/ mile, roundtrip. If traveling over 3 hours one way, a one night hotel stay is required.
How does your booking process work?
My booking process is super simple!
For weddings: I will send an electronic wedding photography contract & invoice to your email. I need a signed contract and the 35% non-refundable retainer in order to hold your date. The final balance is due 14 days before the wedding date. Once I receive payment and the contract, you are officially a Maddy Godt Photography bride!
For general sessions: a 25% deposit is due at the time of signing your contract, with the final balance being due on the day of your session and payable in cash or card (1.5% service fee). Please let me know what you prefer prior to our session so I can prepare accordingly.

When are you available & how do I book?
Please contact me before setting up a shoot and I will be happy to tell you the best time I will be available to take your photos. I get dozens of inquiries weekly and cannot always update my calendar. Head over to the contact page, kindly fill out the form, and I’ll be in touch as soon as I can!
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes, I am insured, I can always send your venue a copy of my liability insurance if they need it.
How will you ensure our images are backed up?
I back up my photos onto 2 hard drives, with one being connected to my computer whenever I am editing. Additionally, I shoot on 2 memory cards during every wedding. After the wedding is over, I transfer all the RAWs onto one large memory card, as well. I do not delete any RAW images until your photos have been safely uploaded to the online gallery. I keep a copy of the edited images on both hard drives, as well.
When did you start photography?
I picked up my first camera as a high schooler in 2012. It started as a hobby, I did odd jobs through the years and was on and off for a while. Finally in 2018 I decided to pick it back up again for good! I revamped my socials, website & bought all new equipment... the rest is history!
Do you offer prints, canvases, etc?
Yes, I do! There is an entire print store attached to the online gallery you will log into. It offers prints, wall mounts, canvases, cards, and more! The store is outstanding quality and is highly recommended by many clients, myself included.
Can we add on extra hours during our wedding?
Yes, you can! Each additional hour is $250 and payment is due before I continue shooting longer.
