Wedding Experience

"Professional, on time, organized, experienced, and Fun!"

Macalee was very professional, on time, organized, experienced, and fun! My husband does not enjoy getting his photo taken, but he was comfortable behind Macalee's lense.

She was open to any ideas we had but also had lots ideas to share with us. With Macalee, I did not have to worry about the photography part of our wedding. Also, I loved how she includes an engagement session in her packages. It was probably our favorite part! We even had several sneak peeks the day after our wedding!

"I could rave about Macalee for days."

Macalee was amazing. She captured our engagements, my bridals, and finally the wedding! She didn’t keep me waiting long either to see the photos. I had a sneak peak within a day of each shoot and the full gallery followed quickly behind. 

In addition to capturing our photos, Macalee also designed our save the date, sign in book, and helped me order larger canvases to ensure they came in how I wanted them too. I could rave about Macalee for days. She went above and beyond to capture this special moments in our lives and I couldn’t imagine our wedding without her. I can’t wait to use her in the future.

"I don't have a favorite because it was all so wonderful!"

Macalee makes everything run so smooth on your wedding day. You will barely notice she is there and when you do, she is making you smile and laugh to take the best photos ever.

This is an extremely exciting time for you!  I am overjoyed that you found me, and I believe that getting to know clients is the essential to ensuring an incredible experience.

I'm sure your mind is racing with everything that needs to be done. It's all very exciting, but it can also be a little overwhelming at times. You're planning the day you've been looking forward to your entire life, but you only get one shot at it! The planning is finished by the time you get the gist of it!

As a professional photographer, my mission is to make this one aspect of the planning as smooth as possible. Photography is much more than just capturing images; it is an integrated component of your day. You deserve not only beautiful images, but also an incredible photographic experience. When couples are at ease and relaxed in front of the camera, it shows in the photos, which results in genuine and joyful images!

Your wedding day is an experience from beginning to end, and your photography is a huge component of that.... shouldn't it be fun? and enjoyable? and natural? I believe so! My goal is to create an experience for my clients that they'll never forget, not just capture memories for them.

the process

Forming a relationship with the couple is one way I ensure that brides and grooms have the BEST photographic experience possible. Before officially booking, I do my best to ensure that all of my couples are the PERFECT fit.

A couple should connect with their photographer, trust them, and be EXCITED about the entire process! After booking, I enjoy getting to know my clients through an ENGAGEMENT SESSION, which allows them to warm up to the camera and be ready to rock and roll on the wedding day! By the wedding day, my clients are more like friends, which creates a safe and relaxed environment for photography!

An engagement session is included in all wedding day pricing with the exception of micro wedding pricing.
Most couples need time to get used to being photographed and to understand how I pose. Timelines can be tight on wedding days, and we may only have 15-minutes for portraits - which is why I've found that couples who do engagement sessions beforehand have much better wedding day portraits.

Engagement sessions also allow you to show your personalities in a more relaxing environment that is significant to the two of you (and also include pets!). While they're great for save-the-dates, I've taken engagement photos anywhere from 18 months before the wedding to a few days before.
