weddings + couples

travel + lifestyle

fashion + branding

A little backstory…


So, if you’ll meet me in person I’ll probably say “Hi, I’m Maddie, but everyone calls me String!” This is met with a bit of confusion, but I go on to say “well my last name is Stringfellow but in a world full of Maddie’s I’m usually just String” 

I’m an enneagram seven, I’m a mom to a very dramatic ragdoll cat named Willie and I live in Kansas City, MO. I grew up in Michigan (Lake Orion to be exact), moved to KC before my junior year of high school, attended the journalism school at Mizzou, and then began my photography career.

Since then, I’ve fully committed to doin this thang and I’ve been so lucky to travel and connect with some pretty amazing people in the process.

My roots are in documentary photojournalism. I’m not the photographer to put you into the “perfect pose,” I’m the one to be there for the whole ebb and flow and capture each moment just as it feels. Think of it like this – what is it that you want to show your family in 20 years? How will these emotions and memories be illustrated alongside your stories?

This requires so much trust, and I promise to honor that. I promise to use my expertise in photography and my love for connection to capture your story beautifully and honestly.
