Your photographer


Your photographer

Welcome and thank you for visiting my website!

"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving.
What you have caught on film is captured forever...
it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything."

- Aaron Siskind, American photographer, 1903-1991

I’m Madalina, the owner and main photographer of Madalina Lesan Photography.  I enjoy being able to share in the love of two individuals and I feel privileged to work with such wonderful people! 

I am also your dedicated photographer, storyteller and support on this incredible journey of your marriage. I don’t just show up and shoot. I recognize the true importance of my role in your special day. I take the time to get to know you before, so that I can become part of your circle and capture every one of those special moments throughout the day. I curate the most important storybook of your life so far, for many future generations of your family to enjoy.

Based out of Rockville, Maryland, I’ve been photographing weddings since 2009!

When I’m not behind the camera, you can find me out and about with my husband and two sons, Theodore and Alexander.  We love the DC region and all of its many sites and attractions.  As you probably already guessed, there’s never a dull moment in our home!  I never intended on making this my life’s work, but my passion for it has turned it into the work of my life.

I am passionate about documenting deep, impactful weddings that at times give a hint of whimsy and lightheartedness.

I am looking forward to talking with you about your love story, wedding day, and dreams for your future together.  This is an overwhelmingly exciting season of life, and I want nothing more than for you to find the perfect photographer to capture your one-of-a-kind story.
