Glenda recently photographed our wedding on October 17th, 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... Read More from the first time we met her, which is necessary for the best photos. I (Whitney) 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

She also had a wonderful assistant that helped to make our images even more unique with dramatic lighting and a great second opinion. All in all, it was an amazing experience and worth every penny.

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... Read More 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!

According to TV Guide I am labeled as a celebrity for being a contestant on the hit show Face Off. Of all the pictures I have posted on social media, I got more "likes" on the photos Glenda took than anything I have ever posted. Enough said. Really though I got very lucky... Read More finding Glenda while attending the IX center Bridal Show. I noticed right away that her artistic vision was exactly what we were looking for. My husband and I are both artists with a very specific vision. We had an American Horror Story themed wedding and we needed a photographer that could capture the macabre look we were going for along with making us feel comfortable enough to do so. We had our wedding at a theater and wanted really cool movie posters of ourselves. I searched on line for them and even started putting them together until Glenda told me she could do them. What she was able to do with photo shop was better than anything I have ever seen and her price was lower than anything I have found. I had her make us two posters! When we finally had the wedding I couldn't stop crying which made my face look puffy and old. Lucky for me Glenda was able to airbrush all of that out so I looked as beautiful as I had envisioned for my big day. Before my wedding I was reading information about all aspects of weddings. Many of the articles out there had brides saying that their number one regret was not having a good photographer. You spend a lot of time thinking about your wedding day, planning your wedding day and spending a ton of money on your wedding day. The day goes by in the blink of an eye. All you have left to remember it by is the photos. Having a great photographer is so so very important and Glenda Madaris is definitely top notch! I will absolutely cherish my wedding photos for the rest of my life thanks to Artistic Photography by Glenda. Thank you Glenda. Jill Burgner

As a minister, I’ve been performing weddings for over 40 years. I’ve lost count of how many exactly, but I’m in a plethora of photo albums as the Officiant. So when I decided to get married myself, I reevaluated the typical Marital Ceremony and the usual elements of just about... Read More every Holy Union. Not only did I alter the Service, but I was most concerned about the lasting memories - - photographs. I have worked with a host of professionals through the decades. Actually, I could predict the poses well in advance. This time, for me and my bride, I desired an artist, an individual who looked not only through the lens but beyond. That is, to see the family and friends, to capture the sacred and the joyful, to record the where and the when of it all. Glenda was an amazing artisan of her craft, exceeding my expectations, revealing in her pictures what most photographers either ignore or just plain miss. Thank you, Glenda, for everything and more!
