I get to photograph amazing people, traditions and ceremonies every week. Brides and grooms quickly go from being clients to dear friends. I bond with all my couples and continue that friendship long after the pictures have been printed. It’s one of the most rewarding parts of my job.
I love each moment of the wedding day and strive to capture it without being pushy, in the way, or forcing things. I am respectful of the ceremony space and your guests. The ultimate compliment I can get is, "I don't even remember you being there." The photographs should tell the story of the day without needing any words.
My photographic style is eclectic- I have a strong emphasis on a photojournalistic style but mixed in is traditional and artistic. Each wedding is different and I tailor my photography to the needs of each couple.
The studio photographs a very limited amount of weddings each year – between 10 and 15. This is to continue the tradition of high quality imagery and quick turnaround times for our clients.
My basic wedding package includes six hours of wedding day coverage and print permission. Every package also includes a complimentary engagement session. Add-ons and special coverage for a wedding are endless. Albums, prints, engagement party and rehearsal dinner coverage, etc. are all available.
I am a proud and award winning member of the Wedding Photojournalist Association (WJPA). My work can be seen in many wedding magazines and blogs. You can view my press clippings, my portfolio, and lots more on my website.

Amazing photographer - Highly recommend!
Mary Kate is the best! I was shocked when she sent over our photos so quickly - not even three weeks after our wedding - but wasn’t surprised when I saw how beautifully she (and her awesome second shooter, Tim) captured both the big and the little moments of the day. People aren’t kidding when they say your wedding goes by in the blink of an eye, so we couldn’t be happier that we have so many amazing pictures to remember the day. Mary Kate’s penchant for capturing the small details and impromptu/candid moments is incredible, as is her ability to make everyone in a shot look good! On top of her high-quality work and professionalism, Mary Kate is warm, friendly, and so easy to work with – it makes posing for what could be awkward wedding photos so much better when the person behind the camera makes you feel like an old friend.Sent on 07/17/2019

Mary Kate McKenna is absolute amazing. Talented. Her pictures are simple breathtaking. The first time I saw our wedding pictures I was speechless. I never saw pictures so beautiful. I found her in the Bride and Groom Washingtonian magazine. Not only is she extremely talented but she is very kind, personable and down to earth. My wedding party loved her as well and raved about her pictures. Friends upon seeing my pictures wanted to know who did our photos . Mary Kate is awesome!!Sent on 08/27/2016

Her wonderful photos speak for themselves, but I will tell you about her anyways. Mary Kate clearly has a passion for her work as she was able to help my husband easily forget that he was having his picture taken. The first time we met was the day of our engagement pictures and she made us feel at ease immediately. On our wedding day Mary Kate and her assistant were awesome - we were thrilled with all of our pictures. Book her ASAP.Sent on 11/19/2015
One of the best in the area!!! Pick Mary Kate and you'll be thrilled with the final product!!!
I've worked with Mary Kate on a number of weddings. Her personality is heart-warming. She makes her clients feel comfortable right away. Her photographs speak volumes. She is professional, talented and passionate. I'm fortunate to have had her as a wedding professional contact for all these years and now, as a friend!
We loved having Mary Kate at Caboose Farm! She is an amazing photographer and we can not wait to have her visit us again and make another couple very very happy!
