... could not speak more highly of our experience with her
"We did a styled shoot with Mackenzie and we could not speak more highly about our experience with her. Her professional and encouraging mannerism really helped us feel so comfortable and like we could just be ourselves! We would highly recommend her to anyone who wanted a fun photoshoot!"
...friendly, talented, organized, professional and knowledgeable
"I highly recommend Mackenzie Kelly Photography. Mackenzie helped my now fiancé plan a perfect surprise proposal and captured it all on camera. Mackenzie photographed our special moment so beautifully, and I am forever grateful to have the gorgeous pictures that she took. After the proposal, Mackenzie photographed an entire engagement shoot, complete with outfit changes and champagne. She was in contact with my fiancé in the weeks leading up to the event to make sure the day went off without a hitch. Mackenzie provided clear directions to make sure our pictures turned out perfect, and looked natural rather than posed. She was enthusiastic throughout the entire shoot and lead us to a few different locations to provide variety in our photos. Mackenzie is friendly, talented, organized, professional, and knowledgeable. Thank you to Mackenzie (and her husband/helper Randy!) for providing us with beautiful lasting memories from our special day. "
"Our family has worked with Mackenzie twice now. The reason I hired McKenzie to begin with is I loved how light and bright her photos were. But after working with her every expectation I had was blown out of the water!
The first time she shot for us was 2 weeks after our son was born and the second time was when our son was 6 months old.
Before our scheduled photo shoot Mackenzie messaged me to make sure I was happy with the places she suggested to take the photos which I really appreciated! Not only to make sure it was not too far of a distance to drive but to make sure we were both on the same page for the vision of the photoshoots.
Both times Mackenzie showed so much patience for us and our son. She took her time with us as you can imagine getting photos with a baby is a lot harder than it looks. She was patient, kind and understanding. She also took so many shots which I appreciated because I tend to be very picky.
When our son was a newborn I had to stop the photo shoot mid way to nurse him and she had no issues. When I say she was patient I truly mean it!
On top of that her photos were delivered in a very timely matter. We even got some teaser edits the same day.
It has been a blessing to find Mackenzie as we will continue to use her services as our family continues to grow. She captures our family in such a beautiful way and I’m so thankful that she sees my vision and brings our family photo dreams to life. Thank you Mackenzie!"
... her photos are simply stunning!
"We were looking for a photographer who could capture beautiful bright photographs for our family. After coming across some of her work it was easy to tell that Mackenzie was the perfect fit! I am so happy that we chose to work with her. Mackenzie is very easy to work with and did not hesitate when we asked to bring our dogs along. She went over details with us ahead of time and made us feel very comfortable behind the camera. Her photos are simply stunning, I do not know how else to describe them! Mackenzie has created some very special keepsakes for our little family and we will definitely be using her again in the future."
...friendly, professional, and helps you feel at ease infront of the camera
"We loved working with Mackenzie for our maternity and newborn photoshoots! She 's so easy to work with; she's friendly, professional, and helps you feel at ease infront of the camera. She works with you to create your vision while also offering great suggestions. We've loved how our photos turned out each time. We will definitely be working with her again!"
... the way she captures light is absolutely breathtaking
"Working with Mackenzie is an absolute pleasure! She is easy to work with & is extremely talented at making everyone she shoots feel comfortable in front of the camera. Not only does she have an impeccable eye for detail, but the work she puts into all her editing really shows the best version of yourself. The way she captures light is absolutely breathtaking & I will 100% be hiring her for my own wedding as well as recommending her to each one of my clients. She captures beautiful candid shots and also knows how to pose her clients - very well rounded. Mackenzie is genuine, a true joy and an amazing photographer! "
