Hi friend! I'm so happy you're here! My name is McKenzie and I'm a lover of all things coffee, R&B and Labradoodles.
A few years ago I definitely would've laughed if you had told me I'd be shooting weddings most weekends and running my own full-time photography business. No really, because just a few years ago I was on the conventional college track, living in University campus dorms, and only dreamed I'd be doing what I am now.

I believe in flowers for no reason. I believe no text is complete without an emoji. I BELIEVE IN FINDING AN EXCUSE TO VISIT THE OCEAN AS OFTEN AS POSSIBLE. I believe in kindness. I believe every outfit is best complimented with a baseball cap. I believe in failing, because at least that means you tried. I believe in having a piece of dark chocolate everyday. I believe car dance parties are a necessity. I believe a little retail therapy never hurt nobody. I believe in Jesus Christ. I believe no room is complete without a candle. I believe everyone needs a dog in their life. I believe love is a choice. I believe I wouldn't survive without music. I believe ice cream is the cure to any bad day (or any day for that matter). I believe laughter is the best medicine.
Dreams of having my own photography business began for me at a young age, and continued throughout my time in college. My dreams ultimately led me to forgo the four year college plan to fully pursue photography, and not a day goes by where I regret my decision. My world has expanded and grown so much more than I could've imagined and I'm so thankful I get to call what was once a dream, my reality.
My passion lies in utilizing natural light to capture pure joy, and freeze moments that embody fine art and timelessness. I want people to feel something when they look at my work, and feel connection, I love being a part of telling people's love stories, and being more than just someone who takes pretty pictures. I love getting to know my couples and create real life friendships.
If you think we'd be a good fit, head on over to my inquire page. I can't wait to chat more soon!
