"My husband and I were researching wedding photographers and found McKenzie's webpage. We fell in love with how she caught the special moments of joy and love. We emailed her and she promptly responded to set up a date for us to meet at a cafe nearby. During our meeting, we discussed our vision which was to capture the spirit of our day along with some family photos. Working with McKenzie to turn our vision into reality was a seamless process. She helped us come up with a plan for our wedding day and made it completely stress-free for the photos. We love her laid-back and creative approach. When it rained during our wedding she made it into something special and some of our favorite photographs are in the rain. I'm not incredibly comfortable in front of a camera but McKenzie helped me feel at ease. We cannot thank her enough for all of her help, her whimsical, creative touch and our beautiful memories." -Luciana & Adam
"Not only is McKenzie an extremely natural and talented photographer, but she also had the guts to shoot my entire wedding party from a Baltimore City rooftop! She kept us feeling calm and comfortable, despite the common fear of heights and having our picture taken. She took a multitude of shots from various angles and when I show people my beloved wedding album they can't believe we only had one photographer capture every pivotal moment." -Michelle & Danny
"The photographs of our family make my heart smile. Your positive energy and demeanor made all of us feel comfortable and natural for the entire session (not an easy feat); it can be seen through the emotions of joy and pride on parents’ and grandparents’ faces perfectly captured in the photos. Each image displays our everyday interactions in the best light. We cherish the details in the photos of little fingers, big laughs and sweet looks and look forward to more sessions to come. Thank you!"
"I just love these pictures so much. It took me a bit to get over how much I truly hate looking at pics of myself and now I just can't stop looking at them. That farm made me the person and mother I am today and I don't have the right words to describe the feeling of having those moments and colors captured forever. It's almost like relief. Like I don't have to worry about forgetting because it's all right there for me. Thank you."
"I have never been more in awe of your talents than I am looking at photos of my own life. You took such tiny moments and spots and feelings and colors and made them so magical. I kind of can't even understand your skillz. The biggest feeling I felt when looking at them was just gratitude. Not in a hashtag blessed kind of way, but just grateful that this little boy hanging up dyed hankies and that landline on the mountain and messy little corner work space are part of MY life. It seems incredible, really, when you start to stack up the years and the choices and the people and the days and all of it just seems to fit and feel very right. Thank you for that feeling."
"You captured our family exactly as I had hoped. I will have to go back through the pictures a 100 times more. I think I have 30 favorite pictures. Which ones to frame!?!?! I don't think I can ever use another photographer, others don't compare."
"McKenzie came recommended by a close a friend and we were so incredibly happy with her throughout the whole wedding process. After requesting to meet us in person at a local coffee shop, she was eager to hear about how we met, our family members, and what we wanted to capture on that special day. It was apparent from that first interaction she was serious in her work, creative, artistic, and thorough. In addition to spending time with us, she went to the wedding venue in advance in order to plan for some of her pictures and get a sense of the environment. On the big day, she was great in organizing family members for a few staged pictures but then quietly moved around the venue capturing the most beautiful candid images. We have loved to look back at all of the pictures that remind us of the quirky art displayed on the wall, to the food prepared for our guests, to children crawling on the floor, and family members having private conversations. Within a few days of our wedding, McKenzie gave us a few completed images and provided the remainder a short period later. The images were given to us in an adorably packaged flash drive along with some of her handmade cloth napkins. We have recommended her to friends as we were so pleased with her work, professionalism, artistic ability, and incredibly kind personality." - Kati & Justin
