Photographer Spotlight – Tim and Madie Photography LLC

Today the photographer spotlight is on Tim and Madie Photography LLC.  Tim is a fulltime photographer and Madie is his wife and business partner. They are wedding and portrait photographers located in St. Paul MN who shoot on location around the Twin Cities. Tim and Madie specialize in creating natural, unposed images that truly engage the subject and viewer alike. Madie and Tim were married in 2001 and they have two lovely daughters. They are adorable and the best things that have ever happened to them. For Tim, every day is a pleasure with his camera.


What made you want to join The Gold Hope Project as a volunteer? When I was 16 years old, I lost my mother to cancer after a four year fight. The only way my wife and daughters have “met” my amazing mother is through pictures and the stories they prompt. I have a personal attachment to the power of photographs. I immediately volunteered to be a TGHP photographer the second I heard about the project so that I’d have the chance to share that power with other families.

What is your favorite thing about being a volunteer photographer for the project?
My favorite thing about being a TGHP photographer is meeting sweet little kids who have more courage and strength then myself and the parents whose love is greater than their fear. It humbles me.
Has working with children with cancer changed anything in your life?
It reminds me to make it impossible for my girls to be able to count the number of times I kiss them, hug them and tell them I love them each day.
What is one thing you hope to families you photograph for the project can take away from this experience?  
That they are not alone and other people care.
How would you describe your photography?
I shoot from the heart and I hope my images relate that.
