Hello, we are The Madious, formerly known as EyeWonder Photography. We LOVE being a part of weddings.

We take a modern approach to interacting with our clients that makes it effortless and fun. To that end, we encourage an engagement session with all of our packages. It gives our couples a chance to get used to our unusual style of photography which does not involve a lot of traditional posing. Instead, we rely on your personalities as individuals and as a couple to bring a 'realness' to the image, while we focus on the artistic side - the light, the composition - the result is a beautiful representation of who you are as a couple. On your wedding day, you will feel comfortable and know exactly what to expect when working with us.

Fun, interesting, beautiful portraits aside... we understand the importance of capturing the moments of your day and all the connections that happen between your friends and family as they come together to celebrate. We want you to FEEL your wedding again every time you look at your images.

Full day coverage with TWO photographers starts at $5200. Most couples invest $6300-7600 to include engagement session, digital negatives, albums, etc. Please inquire for full package details.

We look forward to hearing from you.

I cannot emphasize enough how much we LOVE Kristiaan and Lionel. They are an amazing duo. My husband's sister used them for their wedding and we had our heart set on them once we got engaged. We shopped around at first just to see what was out there since our wedding date for them was unavailable. We were so disappointed. Then when we found out that Kristiaan and Lionel were available we felt like the stars had aligned and the search stopped right at that moment. Working with Kristiaan and Lionel was so delightful and easy. They blend in wonderfully with family and friends so much that they make everyone so comfortable to be around them! You can tell they are passionate about their work and making sure they deliver their very best. They are dedicated to ensuring you are relaxed throughout your entire wedding day (Lionel at one point even let me use his coat because I was cold!) - That's genuine character! They are so much fun to work with, have an amazing way of capturing every moment, and really take the time to get to know you not just as their clients. We truly believe they are the best photographers out there! Their talent is remarkable. You are missing out if you don't utilize them for your wedding. You can't go wrong! They embody everything photographers should be and more, so if you are able to book them do not hesitate because you will not be disappointed with their amazing work.

The Madious will be the best vendor that you choose for your wedding....hands down. Their photography is simply breathtaking. Their use of color, light, composition and creativity is unparalleled and their process is incredible. They are completely seamless and coordinated as only a husband and wife team could be. The Madious captured every moment from the perfect angles without having to direct or control our event and we felt completely free to enjoy our wedding without a care in the world. From the moment that we met them months before our event to the final reveal they were perfection. Stop reading this review and book them now!!

We love the Madious! They took the time to meet with us in person in advance of our wedding to get to know our personalities and take some practice shots (mostly to get my husband and I comfortable with being photographed so that our wedding photos would turn out as natural as possible). On the wedding day, they were there at every special moment and captured the most beautiful shots, both posed and candids, of us, our family, and our friends. And we had so much fun with them! Not only are they incredibly personable and fun, they're everywhere, but not in your face, and by the end of the night, we felt like they were just another two of best friends having a blast on the dance floor. They were such a special part of our big day and have given us beautiful shots of the people most important to us to remember all the fun we had and all the love surrounding that day.

Before I delve into the vendor-specific review, I want to say one thing. If you are getting married, you will spend more time with your photographers than your family and friends. Make sure it is someone you get along with! I think the Madious will tell you the same thing. If there is one thing you should make sure is high-quality, it is photography. And the Madious are top-notch. Not to mention, their dog is adorable :)

I was interested in their photography because a) the quality is wonderful, particularly nighttime shots which are a good mark of distinction in my mind. b)on their website, they say "our mission is to capture to wedding so when you look at our images, it's as if you were there." I definitely had that feeling. They have a journalistic style and are particularly good at capturing emotion and natural moments. And the colors!!!

From the moment we booked them, we felt like their only client. They are very flexible and don't charge by the hour, which honestly is crucial because you never know how your day is going to go, so having one vendor there from the start to finish of when you need them, without stressing about timelines, is crucial. You also get BOTH of them. What a treat! It's not like one main photographer and an assistant - you get two highly qualified photographers of equal caliber but distinct, complementary styles. Plus they're husband and wife and love each other so much, which makes everyone's day so much more enjoyable.

We met a few times, once for the engagement shoot, and once before the wedding to figure out the portrait list and timing of the day. Having the extra face time before the wedding is so nice, but I know it's not always possible, it just so happened that we had the benefit of being local so that helped a lot.

The Madious are like family to me now. I would recommend them to any person who could fit them into their budget. It is money well-spent.

Where do I even begin? The Madious are incredible!! Not only were our photos for both our engagement and wedding stunning, they are just great people! You spend so much time with your photographers on your wedding day, and you want to make sure they are not only capturing great photos, but keeping you calm. They did that and more! The Madious recommended doing a private first look, which as the best decision we made for our wedding. Kristiaan and Lionel rode with each of us there and kept us SO calm. By the end of the night, they felt like another member of our family! They do an incredible job capturing beautiful portraits (how do they even think of some of these shots!?) while also taking beautiful, candid photos. By far the best vendor for our wedding!

The Madious... where do I even begin? I came across Lionel and Kristiaan's work by pure luck! I had been scouring the internet for images of our ballroom and stumbled upon a wedding The Madious had done at the venue we had selected. I quickly fell in love with their website/work, and we scheduled to meet with them shortly thereafter. We didn't meet with many photographers, but from the start, Lionel and Kristiaan stood out! There was no debating whether or not we would hire them after that! Based on their suggestion, we purchased the package that included an engagement session which was definitely worth it! We became more familiar with them, their style, and being in front of the camera, which was so much better than walking into our wedding without that experience and knowledge. As a result, we had a bunch of interactions with them leading up to our wedding. Come our wedding day, they were definitely more like friends, then someone we hired to photograph our wedding. They also quickly blended in with our bridal party, parents, and guests. My Mom, who has quickly become one of their biggest fans, will tell anyone that it was as if they were part of the family!

Regarding their work ethic/attitude - well they both will do pretty much anything for a shot! Hanging off a dock, laying in a puddle, you name it! And, the pictures are simply amazing. I feel like I can relive the whole day through merely the pictures which is AMAZING as we didn't have a videographer. Their website says, "we believe your wedding images should allow you to feel what it was like to be there." Lionel and Kristiaan definitely gave us that! You can truly feel the love, laughter, and happiness that we and our guests experienced that day by simply scrolling through our photo gallery. I do not see how anyone would be disappointed with their work. Hiring them was definitely one of the best decisions we made, and we look forward to using them in the future!

The Madious... where do I even begin? I came across Lionel and Kristiaan's work by pure luck! I had been scouring the internet for images of our ballroom and stumbled upon a wedding The Madious had done at the venue we had selected. I quickly fell in love with their website/work, and we scheduled to meet with them shortly thereafter. We didn't meet with many photographers, but from the start, Lionel and Kristiaan stood out! There was no debating whether or not we would hire them after that! Based on their suggestion, we purchased the package that included an engagement session which was definitely worth it! We became more familiar with them, their style, and being in front of the camera, which was so much better than walking into our wedding without that experience and knowledge. As a result, we had a bunch of interactions with them leading up to our wedding. Come our wedding day, they were definitely more like friends, then someone we hired to photograph our wedding. They also quickly blended in with our bridal party, parents, and guests. My Mom, who has quickly become one of their biggest fans, will tell anyone that it was as if they were part of the family!

The Madious are the best!!! We loved working with Lionel & Kristiaan not just because they are incredibly talented photographers, but because they made the whole experience so fun and enjoyable. We got to know them on a personal level and I can honestly say they are some of the nicest people we've ever met. They did an amazing engagement shoot for us, helped us plan the wedding day timeline, and kept us calm the entire day of the wedding. When we finally got all of the photos from the wedding, we were blown away with how amazing they were. Their natural & artistic style allowed them to perfectly capture everyone's emotions throughout the day. The photos look more incredibly every time we look at them, and we are so grateful to the Madious for telling our wedding story in such a beautifully way.

If you are searching for wedding photographers - STOP - you have found them! The Madious were simply wonderful. Their photographs speak for themselves (and we were of course impressed beyond belief with our images) but what I would like to comment on is the two of them. Lionel and Kristiaan are warm, friendly, and hilarious. From the moment we met them, my husband and I both felt at ease and it was as if we were hanging out with people we had known our entire lives. They really made an effort to get to know us as a couple and to see what our vision for the wedding was. On the day of the wedding, they showed up early and left when the last guests left bringing incredible creativity, talent, energy, and reassurance along with them. We could not have asked for better photographers!
