Contact Kristiaan Madiou

We are married photographers who fell in love holding cameras in our hands and haven't put them down since. We think that photographing love is the best job in the world.  
Doing this work with my best friend is amazing. We complement each other, we compete, we divide and conquer, we share the experience. I sneak a kiss once in a while. Couldn't imagine it any other way.  
Me? I am a perfectionist who is utterly imprefect - I love candy, movies, and staying up late. I feel the most alive when I am traveling, dancing, or making photographs.

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

We are located in the DC area, but we frequently travel to destinations far and wide to document moments for couples and their families. We charge travel fees based on the location.

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

We have been in business for 11 years (we began in 2007).

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

Our style is 'creative documentary', with a strong emphasis on capturing moments, connections, and emotions.

Do you have a studio where we can meet? Do you use Skype?

We have meeting space in our home and prefer to meet in person, however, we often meet with couples via skype if they do not live in our area.

What are your professional degrees, credentials, affiliations? Have you taken any recent educational workshops or classes?
