Photography that's Personable

YOUR LOVE, YOUR STORY

I can't wait to get to know you and what is important to you. Knowing and understanding how special each moment is throughout your journey, and how nervous you may feel to be in front of the camera, my mission is to make you comfortable and be your authentic self. 
 

All my focus is on you. It’s all about raw emotions, having fun, and creating memories that will last a lifetime.

WHY I LOVE WHAT I DO

I first picked up a camera when my kids were born and documented them over the years. Eventually, finding my way as a Director of Communications in the nonprofit sector opened a door for me to become a photographer. Although I started in action photography, our mission was human emotion and connection. Here is where I fell in love with people and their stories. I'll never forget the moment when I knew that I knew I needed to pursue this passion. 

In 2021, when I decided to take my photography full-time, it was clear to follow the path into wedding and family photography. Not only getting to know people through my time with them but through the words of their friends and family and using that to drive my focus.

Photography is a place of joy - It's no secret that I love being behind the lens. I am honored to follow my passion on a path that brings me to an incredible career and eventually meet people like you. Beautiful landscapes and golden light drive my style but are always centered around authentic emotion and storytelling. My goal is to get to know you so that I can capture you authentically.

 

I can't wait to document these parts of your life, moments that might have come and gone, but are now documented as a permanent placeholder of time. These moments will fill your walls with laughter and your genuine connection. I invite you to come as you authentically are and allow me to document you and those love the most.

Warmly, MacKenzie

With my background starting in the nonprofit sector, it is important for me to continue giving back to organizations and the communities they serve.

 

When you work with me you are part of my mission to use photography as a medium for healing and documenting authentic moments. 

MAY THIS BE THE BEGINNING OF A BEAUTIFUL STORY
