Madeline Trent Photography

North Carolina Photographer

Hi there! My name is Madeline Trent and I am a fine art wedding photographer based near Asheville, North Carolina. I am originally from Austin, Texas, so I am blessed to be able to work in Texas as often as I do in the Southeast. My photography is romantic, joyful, and timeless, with an editorial style that is full of beautiful light and natural emotion. I specialise in romantic, whimsical, elegant weddings around the world.

My journey into photography began as a little girl with a Polaroid camera, anxiously awaiting to see what magic I could create. Each picture felt like an extraordinary gift that I adored sharing with others. While on a mission trip to Africa in 2013, I photographed some very special children and decided to pursue my dream of photographing weddings. I still feel that same magic each time I pick up my camera, and I would be honoured to capture your love story. I approach my work with each unique couple in mind, creating an experience that is all about you. I can’t wait to hear from you, listen to your story, and create something special together!

Interview

IF I HAVE A FREE SUNDAY I WOULD SPEND IT… on a spontaneous road trip with my husband, daughter, and puppy. We have recently been talking about waking up extra early and making the drive to Outer Banks, NC, so we can watch the wild ponies run up and down the beach. Of course, I’d bring my camera along! 

MY MOST MEMORABLE TRAVEL EXPERIENCE WAS… walking through the lavender fields in Provence in July. The experience was almost other-worldly and felt like a glimpse of heaven. Everything from the crunch of the white gravel under our shoes to what seemed like endless rows of lavender stretching into the horizon as the sun set. There were thousands of honeybees buzzing in what felt like a symphonic choir and the smell was completely divine. 

THE COUNTRY I MOST WANT TO VISIT IS… I have been dreaming of Bali for some time. We have dear friends who are missionaries and live there, but visiting them has not yet happened. I could move to the South Pacific if I thought my husband would let me get away with it! 

WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT MY JOB IS… building relationships and helping other people and traveling to new places.

IF I DIDN’T DO THIS FOR A JOB I WOULD BE/DO… an interior designer or attorney.

IF I COULD GIVE NEWLY ENGAGED COUPLES ONE PIECE OF ADVICE IT WOULD BE enjoy the season of engagement because soon you will married and these days are sweet but numbered. Don’t allow the planning or production of your wedding to take away from your marriage.

I LOVE WHERE I LIVE BECAUSE… I love road trips and I can drive almost anywhere on the East coast in less than 8 hours.

IF I COULD LIVE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD IT WOULD BE… Hawaii! I have visited several times and we spent our honeymoon there.

MY FAVOURITE MOVIE IS? This may sound incredibly cheesy, but I love snuggling with up our daughter to watch Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. I can’t get enough of watching her sing and dance and pretend to be a princess who like to read books.

MOST MEMORABLE MEAL I’VE EVER EATEN WAS… a six course sunset meal on our hotel balcony in Cannes, France last summer. The food was of course incredible, but the setting and the ambience just made it more than unforgettable.

THE PETS I OWN ARE… we have a golden retriever named Piper who is almost 3 months old and we absolutely adore.
