I've been photographing love stories since 2017, but my photography journey goes back to my childhood. My parents got me a little point and shoot blue film camera as a kid. I remember taking a whole roll of film of my pet goose, who I so cleverly named moose, and thinking those photos were GOLD. Fast forward to High School where I took my first real photography course and haven't put the camera down since. Since then I've bounced around from my hometown in Alaska, to Colorado, and now Washington photographing weddings all along the way.
A few things that make my heart happy: That first sip of coffee in the morning while my puppers is curled up next to me. Waking up at the cabin to a fresh layer of snow in the trees. Fresh Hop season in Seattle and a flight of all new beers. The smell of campfire on your clothes after getting home from a great camping trip. Saltwater on my face when out fishing with my dad.

"We couldn't be happier with the services provided. From our engagement shoot to our wedding day the photos turned out amazing. She brought such a good vibe being equal parts relaxed and professional. Our photos were edited and returned back promptly with so many to choose from. She was so helpful the day of and we would 100% recommend her to anyone" -Kristi L
"Mckenzie went above and beyond for us"
"Not only did our photos turn out amazing, she helped keep our wedding day on track. She was fun to work with and helped both my husband and I feel comfortable in front the camera. Everyone at our micro-weddign loved her and wouldn't stop talking about what a great experience it was to have her taking photos. We keep joking that we want to get married again so we can get more amazing photos taken!" -Morgan T
