Hello and welcome, friend! I’m Mackenzie, a destination wedding and portrait photographer based in Houston, Texas and traveling far and wide to document love stories around the world.
Whether set in the warm glow of a Texas sunset, wandering the streets of Paris, or under the soaring beams of the New York Public Library, my intention is to document you - and your unique story - in a meaningful and intentional way.
Above all, my couples tend to care more about their marriage than any wedding day detail, and that’s just how I like it. Marriage is a journey of commitment and grace, and I am incredibly honored to be invited into your life at the beginning of this beautiful new chapter - preserving the memories you’ll look back on for decades to come and cherish forever.
In 2018 I married my best friend in a beautiful hand painted church where four generations of his family have also wed. It was the best day, and I truly believe my own wedding day has given me a fresh perspective on wedding photography.
Marriage is the greatest gift, and I truly love getting to celebrate such a special day alongside my couples.

TEX MEX AND
Because Tex-Mex is a regular staple to my diet and what goes better with Mexican food than Margaritas?! I often joke I could live off of Tex-Mex, except sadly it’s not much of a joke at all.
COMPANIES WITH AN
After spending half a year in Uganda as a photojournalist for an ethical fashion company, my heart holds a special place for ethical fashion companies and organizations with a positive impact.
THE ROAD LESS
My first international trip as a mere 20 year old was to Dakar, Senegal (West Africa). It was here that I first fell in love with this idea of traveling off the beaten path. Of course there is so much beauty in all corners of the earth, but there is something so magical about the road less traveled.
From the beautiful wine country, to the slowness Italian's gracefully embrace, my heart has always had a special place for Italy.
