About Maddie - Maddie Cohen

Meet Maddie Cohen

I'm Maddie, a portrait, wedding, and elopement photographer based in Duluth, Minnesota. If the picture above didn't tell you, I practically live outside—and I want to document you out in the woods too.


Each session is meant to be an emotional experience. I'll encourage you to laugh, to cry, to scream at the top of your lungs if you want to. If you're looking for organic posing and a classic editing style, we could be a great match. Bonus: I won't end our session until I feel we have powerful photos that tell your story in a compelling, honest way. 


Storytelling. It's at the core of what I do. After graduating with a degree in French Literature from the University of California, Berkeley, I worked as a multimedia journalist for the NBC affiliate in Montana. By shooting my own video, I learned to tell other people's stories, and I'd be honored to share yours. Please contact me for pricing information.

Working with Maddie was great from the very beginning! She responded to questions very promptly and helped me work through my anxieties about wedding photos. She did a great job executing on our vision and our photos turned out great!

More About Me


1. I go hiking in my free time—a lot. Pretty much every day. I prefer roaming around the woods to the gym, and when I bought my first house last year, one of my only requirements was easy access to the Superior Hiking Trail.


2. My boyfriend Winston and I met as camp counselors in 2014, in the National Forest near Lake Tahoe. He’s from California, I went to school out there, and now (somehow) we're in Duluth. We’re glad we landed here.


3. My photography work means the world to me, but I also run a writing business. It’s a great gig because I get to work a different part of my brain, hang out with my black lab mix Clive, and build my own schedule.



This means extreme flexibility for weddings, portrait sessions, and solo landscape excursions. If you think we could be a good fit, I'd love to get to know you as well. Drop me a line for inquiries, and I'll send you more info (including details on my wedding packages if applicable). Thanks for your consideration!
