for those who crave
I'm a firm believer that living is about connection - connecting with those we love, our beliefs, and the world around us. Our souls yearn for moments that make us closer and experiences that tie us together. I value documenting just that - THE moment & those in-between. Not only ones we live for but subtle ones. That REAL connection can't be faked or forced.
CONNECTING each other through HONEST imagery -
the small the simple the fleeting moments
CONNECTING each other through HONEST imagery - the small, the simple, the fleeting moments
wrinkled noses // his hand on the small of your back // running mascara // sun-kissed freckles // piggyback rides // movement of your dress // breathtaking hugs // windblown hair // stolen kisses // secret handshakes // singing at the top of your lungs // parted lips // running hand in hand // breathing each other in // sunset watching // tickle fights // fingers trailing his jawline // belly laughs
LET'S BE AMIGOS, KNOW ME HERE
I'm the artist, the silent storyteller, the friend behind the camera. I'm driven to pursue my passion of photography by capturing your deep love - you know that moment when eyes meet and souls are reached? I want you to look back at your images and get all the feels. My desire is for you to see who YOU are in those images and be moved by nostalgia. At the end of the day, my "clients" matter most.
I'll be more than your photographer - I'll be a friend.
WHAT'S HER STORY?
Photography all started when my husband and I got the grand idea to travel the US in an RV. Wanting to document on the road I picked up my camera. I told everyone that I would never become a cliché artist - a wedding photographer. After trying varieties of photography out there was something missing for me. I shadowed a close friend shooting a wedding- it hit me, THIS was my calling. Now I can't think of any other art form that would make me feel more fulfilled. Documenting the most celebrated day of one's life - seeing hugs, tears, laughter, and pure togetherness - that's art.

I cannot say enough good things about Mackenzie. Her beautiful photography speaks for itself but beyond that, her fun personality, communication skills, and professionalism made our experience so amazing. Mackenzie prior to meeting and by the questions she asked about us and our love story, it was evident that she really wanted to know US and made us feel important to her. We could not be more pleased with how our photos turned out! Overall, our experience with Mackenzie has exceeded our expectations and I could go on forever with good things to say. You can tell she loves what she does and she puts her heart and soul into her clients.

Mackenzie has been truly heaven-sent! She has been remarkably flexible and equally communicative since the pandemic impacted our planned nuptials significantly. Her ability to capture candid moments is second to none, and all of her directives were easy to follow. Mackenzie’s kind-hearted nature, easy-going spirit, and professionalism, was just what we needed.

Mackenzie's calm and supportive demeanor envelopes a well of creativity that just keeps giving. Her photos truly capture the subject's heart, the intimate moments, the sacred loving moments. These photos are worth a thousand words and she gave us the metaphorical pen and paper. She honors us with these photos, truly.

Mackenzie was simply amazing! I was blown away by the authenticity and quality of her photos! I adore every single one of the photos she took. She made the shoot fun, and even played music to help my husband and I relax. She’s very talented and I can’t recommend her enough!
