Using digital and film photography I capture life with intention in every composition. My photography is romantic, steeped in vintage, collaborating with earthy tones, and reflects the wild unhindered beauty of nature and human connection.
The work we create together is both a moment of nostalgia and a beautiful piece of art that stands on its own through time.
I love to both laugh and cry with my clients. There is always something beautiful to be found about our humanity.
your wedding & lifestyle photographer
Photo is my full time job anddd my full time passion. Everything about this job was screaming my name from the minute I fell into it.
I have been told that I am a calming presence on wedding days, which is the biggest compliment.
I aim to be much more than just a photographer. I am a planner, a dress holder, a makeup fixer, a hand holder, a shoulder to cry on, someone to dance with, to laugh with, and to share your love story with. I love all the details.

"Maura Davidson went above and beyond to make our day picture perfect!! The story she tells with her photos is something we have not seen with other photographers. I would recommend her 10/10. She communicated with us multiple times before the wedding to ensure she knew what was important to capture for our photos. We were so pleased with her work!" - Rachel & Josh
"Maura...where to even begin with this girl! She was one of the biggest parts of our wedding day and someone you want on your team on your big day. She is your personal hype girl and best friend all in one. She brings a fun + calm presence to a day that is oftentimes crazy + chaotic. Maura is creative, fun, organized, professional, and present. She spends quality time getting to know you + your significant other whether it's through phone calls/zoom calls or through your engagement session. She asks the important questions and digs into details that you didn't even know you needed. This truly allows her to be a PART of your day, not just in the back ground snapping pictures. She looks at the little things + captures the sweetest moments. I could not recommend her enough if you're planning any big moment in your life. Put her on your team! <3" - Emilee & Zach
"We absolutely adore Maura!! While planning our wedding she was the biggest help when it came to helping us with the flow of the day and the timing schedule! She was very attentive to our needs and requests concerning the pictures we just had to have and also helped us in thinking of others that we might want later. She was very quick to respond to any questions we had! We will absolutely use her again in the future! We could not recommend her enough! She did an incredible job of capturing our love and our special day! We will be recommending her to all of our family and friends who need a photographer for any occasion!!" - Sarah Beth & Tray
" Maura completely exceeded every expectation we had for our couple session! She was very responsive and intentional leading up to our session. She went above and beyond, even helping us decide on outfits. During our session, she was so easy-going and fun to work with. It felt like we were spending an afternoon with someone we'd known for years! When we received our photos, I was in tears! They are so gorgeous and I know we will cherish them for years to come! She shared several sneak peek photos soon after our session and had our entire album to us in less than two weeks! We will definitely hire Maura again in the future!!" -Sydney & Ben
" Maura is absolutely incredible and talented! She gave us beautiful engagement + wedding photos that we love. Maura was so flexible and helpful with our changing plans due to covid. She was understanding, caring, and she was on our side. She was there with us on our actual backyard wedding day in May 2020, and then again for our reception in Nov 2020. We can't recommend her enough. She became a sweet, familiar friend by the end. We will forever cherish our photos and our time with Maura :)" - Megan & Jon
" I absolutely recommend Maura! She was amazing and so professional the entire step of the way. My wedding was at the end of October 2020, and I don't know how I would have survived without her. Not only are her photos gorgeous! But there were definitely moments when she took the time to listen to me when I needed someone to vent to. Especially during the tough 2020, covid season. Thanks Maura, you rock!" - Emily & Patrick
" Maura is an absolute rockstar!! She was so flexible and accommodating and such a calming and positive presence when plans had to be changed TWICE for our big day! She helped me plan out details and looked ahead to determine the best areas for photos. She makes you feel confident and calm while photographing. Our photos caught our personalities perfectly and were nothing short of amazing! I would gladly recommend her to anyone in need of a photographer!" - Jenny & Garett
" I could NOT recommend Maura enough!!!!! Not only is she such a genuine ray of sunshine, but she is so talented and really takes the time to get to know her clients. I know every photographer says they want to be your friend at the end, but Maura truly lives that out! I am so thankful for her and I CANNOT wait for her to capture mine and Joeys wedding day. There's not a shadow of doubt that Maura is the right person for the job!!!!" - Morgan & Joey
" Maura was an excellent photographer for our wedding! She is so kind, professional, knowledgable, and flexible in case anything happens on the special day. She is so talented, and has an eye for all romantic things! She captures the moments you wouldn't have even thought about, and candids that tell a story. We highly recommend Maura for your photography needs! She was the best! :)" - Ivanna & Hunter
"Maura Davidson Photography is seriously so talented. I love that she doesn’t force us into weird, awkward poses. She allows us to have fun and be ourselves and captures it so beautifully. Her work is raw and authentic and reflects a spirit of adventure. We’re so thankful." -Jenna & Ridge
why am I all about "creating nostalgia"?
It's the feeling your grandparents get when they look back on old film of their wedding day, the disposable camera portraits of you and your siblings sitting on the counter eating brownie batter, the flip phone pictures of your family's first pet cuddled up on the couch. It's home, it's family, it's love, and it's worth taking the time to create it for your future self. Creating nostalgia is being purposeful in your moments and capturing them through photographs.
