Dean MacKay Photography is based in Landers, California, in the High Desert, near Joshua Tree National Park. We can often also be found on the road, exploring new frontiers in Los Angeles, Maine, New York and many other places from Tacoma to Tampa, Denver to Dallas, and Phoenix to Boston, not to mention, our hometown of Ledyard, Connecticut. No matter where you're getting married, we want to be there.
Dean MacKay Photography has photographed weddings of all sizes, from events where we were the witness to two people at the courthouse, to larger, more formal affairs. Because each event is unique, so is our pricing. Don't hesitate to get in touch for a quote. We pride ourselves on going the extra mile to get you what you want, and within your budget.
We love not only photographing the the big moments... the walk down the aisle, the kiss, the cutting of the cake, but also things like seeing your grandma chat with your buddy from college, as well as the small, but important, details of the preparations, venue, and every smile.
Dean MacKay Photography works with both flexibile and high quality digital cameras, and classic and organic 35mm film.
We can't wait to tell your story!
Dean was born and schooled in New England, but discovered a passion for photography in New York. We carried it with us when we moved West, and after many years, made the leap when friends asked us to be their wedding photographer. We were honored to be trusted to capture their special day through our eyes. Since then, not only have we been working as a photographer, but we've also been an adventurer, looking to get the most out of every day. We've house and pet sit all over the Los Angeles area, been a nanny (or rather, a manny), in Maine, and has travelled all over the country, taking a detour whenever we can. Of course, our camera is usually not far from our side, documenting it all.

Dean really captured our special day
Dean really contributed to our special day. He was punctual, friendly and warm with the wedding party and guests and most importantly, took great pictures. Both the posed portraits and the candid shots looked gorgeous and captured the spirit of the day perfectly. Highly recommended!Sent on 10/24/2019
