About Glenda

 Artistic Photography by Glenda,

"Photographing your Wedding Day as "Art"

Over 25 years of Photography experience from Private Investigative and Ariel Photography to shooting for Record Labels, Magazines, International and Local Musicians, Fashion Models, Promotional and Corporate Events, National Charity Organizations, Maternity, Births, Children and Families..."Glenda Madaris" knows there is a huge difference between being able to take good photos and being a "good" Wedding Photographer. Her versatile experience has given her a competitive edge in creating her unique sense of style with skill, patience, assertiveness, attention to detail along with artistic expression and a flare for fashion...all of which goes into Glenda's unique blend of Wedding Photography.

Glenda Madaris is a Photo Artist specializing in "Fine Art" Wedding Photography with a feel of "real life". Her sensitive and natural style is a combination of Candid, Photo Journalism, Portrait and Fine Art Imagery. She commonly refers to her style as "Portrait Journalism". This style has evolved into the most popular form of Wedding Photography because it creates a collection of images with a combination of dramatic, creative portraits of the Bride and Groom as well as a large selection of shots that are natural, spontaneous and un-posed...thus portraying the whole story of your day in a unique and artistic way...

  "This is not just a "job" to me... although this has been my profession fo over 17 years. This is not just a creative outlet...although I consider myself an Artist...This is not just about documenting an important event...although I am a photo journalist... It's all so much more to me than these things...I get to capture the tears of joy and pride at the heights of peoples lives. I get to capture the souls fulfillment of entering a most sacred covenant with the person that you can't live without..the one you've been waiting for all your life. I get to witness and document beautiful and diverse families blending together in unity for the sake of their children and future grandchildren..documenting your hopes, dreams and prayers answered for your children's joy and happiness and the pride you feel in seeing them start their own family... "I".. have the unique blessing of documenting and preserving these precious seconds, expressions and moments in time making them stand still for generations to come..."this is my JOB"?!  It's not just a job to me...it's my purpose and calling, my honor and my gift of blessing to you". 

  "My goal is to create images for you that are as unique as you are...ones that will tell a complete story of your day, capturing detail and emotion that will let you relive your beautiful day over and over again for generations to come....
Creating timeless and emotional images of one of the most important days in your life is such an honor for me...Thank you to all the wonderful families who have allowed me to be a part of and document your most joyous day" !

Your Photographer & Friend,

Glenda Madaris


One of the most stressful part of planning my wedding was trying to find just the right photographer to capture the beauty and emotion of our day. I found Glenda here on The Knot and fell in love with her work! After meeting her, I immediately felt comfortable and confident... that she was the artist we were looking for. Glenda did such an amazing job! Her artistic ability and attention to detail along with her fun and creative personality, makes her a joy to work with. My husband and I as well as our families, cant thank Glenda enough for giving us beautiful images to preserve the memories of our wedding day! We will cherish these for years to come!

After researching local photographers, visitng with many, and always walking away not 100% satisfied with the creativity....I found Glenda! I attended a bridal show in hopes of finding the perfect photographer. I was so distracted by all of the other things that those bridal  shows have to offer that the photos became the last thing on my mind, but when I came upon The Artistic Photography display I knew I struck gold. Glenda was so nice and sweet when I met her and she seemed so passionate about her work. After our meeting with her after the show, we hired her on the spot! The advice and help with preparation up to the wedding was fantastic- she is a true professional! She was AWESOME on our wedding day. She was very considerate to others and got some really creative shots. The perfect pictures I was hoping for- A little tradition with a whole lot of art and creativity! And of course something that not all my friends have, which is the repetitive boring wedding photos you always see. I have gotten so many compliments on my photos as they are on social media, displayed at our family's houses, and all over our house. I have even received many compliments from my family in Germany who say, "These photos are so nice and so classy. We are so impressed because we don't have this type of wedding photographer around at an affordable price." I would recommend Glenda with two thumbs up! I wouldn't have asked for anything different, and her professionalism and great package options are above the rest!

Glenda recently photographed our wedding and we will try to put into words how incredible she was, but honestly, words will never do justice to her passion, character, abilities, and love she has for what she does. Glenda was able to make us feel comfortable.. from the first time we met her, which is necessary for the best photos. I found her through The Knot, and after looking at her work with Ben and meeting her at a bridal show, we knew she was the perfect match for us. It was made even more clear that we made the best photographer decision when Glenda took our engagement photos. From the very beginning, she was smiling from ear to ear, which in turn helped us relax and feel at ease while she was posing us, giving us advice, and taking pictures. When it came to our wedding, we didn't have to worry about a thing with her. We completely trusted her and knew that her passion and keen eye for taking the best shots and also coming up with something unique would really capture our big day. She also made sure to include our little personal details that were special to us as a couple, which further showed how much she cared about us. We are so thankful to Glenda for all the work she did for us, and giving us the most amazing pictures to look back on. We highly recommend Artistic Photography by Glenda, and we promise you will not regret your decision if you go with her! Whitney and Ben Hamilton

Glenda is by far the BEST!!! She was prompt! Detailed oriented! She genuinely cared! She was able to wrangle in my crazy bridal party and family and capture BEAUTIFUL moments! She went above and beyond to ensure each moment was special even in the midst of all the hectic activities of the day! Our wedding day pictures are our most prized possession! Glenda will always have a special place in our hearts. She took some of the most precious and special moments of our lives and made them timeless through photography. I will be able to share the story of our wedding day through visual representation because of her! She is the BEST!!! If I could rate her infinity stars I would because five stars does her no justice.
