Hey! I'm Mackenzie and I run this wedding and portrait business with my oh so handsome husband Lex and my brother Zach. We are a photo and video company based in Villa Park, IL but definitely open to travel. We believe in documentation over awkward stuff posing. Feeling uncomfortable and forced into a 3 hour shoot on your wedding day is not our style. We believe in capturing your day as it unfolds however that happens whether that be by exploring a forest preserve, getting drinks with your bridal party at a brewery, or busting a few moves on the dance floor. We are there for it all.
I started my business in 2010 and truly developed my love for working with couples when I graduated from college in 2015. Since then we have photographed weddings in Florida, Indiana, Kentucky, and more. You might have caught that we also offer video! My brother Zach is my main videographer but Lex and I also do video. These are highlight reels of you day set to music that have a coxy home video feel.
Our most popular collection is our photo and video combo. Couples typically spend about $4400 with us for both! My goal is to work with our couples so they get everything they want out of their photos or video so while I have a few collections created if you don't see one that fits your needs lets work together on creating something custom for you. Becuase every wedding is different and may not fit into one box.
