We are a husband and wife team… Mack & Chelsea. We’ve been growing our business since 2008, and continue to feel unbelievably blessed to be able to pursue our dream career in a world where not everyone gets that chance.
While neither of us has formal training in photography, our former careers as a graphic designer and a journalist gave us unique building blocks to create our own artistic style. We have a blast with our clients, but also take our business incredibly seriously, and are dedicated to top-of-the-line customer service and continued education.
McGowan Images is built entirely on word-of-mouth, and the vast majority of our clients hire us because a friend told them to check us out. We do not take those recommendations lightly, and we are overwhelmed with gratitude for the families who’ve invested in and encouraged us over the last several years.
We have two children… an adventurous boy named Jack, and a fiesty little diva named Dorothy. You’ll see them appear on the blog from time to time.
Mack loves building projects, steampunk design, and cooking good food.
Chelsea loves travel, nerdy conversations about pop culture, and eating whatever Mack is cooking.
Together, we strive to be entirely authentic both in our “real lives” and here in our little online home. We cherish the relationships photography has brought into our lives, and we consider ourselves better people for having been able to meet so many amazing couples.
We’re also completely open books… so if you’ve got a question about our business or our lives, feel free to shoot us an email. We’d love to hear from you!

Mack and Chelsea
McG is an anomaly when it comes to service, treating their clients like family and being as attentive as possible.Sent on 07/07/2019

My daughter’s wedding pictures were absolutely perfect. There were some that looked like they belonged in a magazine. They were stunning!Sent on 12/04/2019

I made sure to book the McGowans before any other vendor!
Seriously, I reached out to the McGowan’s before I booked anything for my wedding to find out their 2019 availability for my wedding. Then I planned the rest from there because it was super important to me to have them booked and locked in for my special day. Outside of Chelsea and Mack being some of the most wonderful human beings that I know, they are the most professional and by far the most reliable vendor you’re going to invest in. They have also been in the biz for I believe around a decade so that also means they have built some pretty amazing relationships with other vendors in the industry. Chelsea was kind enough to send me her preferred list of vendors she respects to assist me with hiring out the rest of the dream team. I can’t even begin to put into words how much value they added to our wedding outside of capturing some of the most beautiful images. I’m pretty sure Chelsea and Mack re bustled my dress at least a dozen times that night and kept certain drama sponges away from me. I personally don’t even think it’s a stretch to claim that Chelsea and Mack turned into day-of coordinators for us by providing a schedule for the day and sticking to it PERFECTLY. Chelsea and Mack are going to capture some of the most beautiful, special moments all the way to the moment when my officiant did a cartwheel during a Beyonce song. They are going to capture images you didn’t even know you needed and I can promise you, that you will end up treasuring for the rest of your life. Don’t worry about feeling awkward or uncomfortable with posing because they will immediately put you at ease and give you direction on the perfect poses. Bad fake smiler? No problem, one of the McGowan’s will crack a joke that will get you full body laughing. Because yes, in addition to everything else I just mentioned, they are also comedians.
I could probably write a small novel on the McGowan’s and my love of their work but for fear of running out of character space I’ll end with this review being my personal guarantee that if you book with them you will fall in love with every image they capture and then some. The only con is the number of frames you’ll need to buy because you’ll want to frame every picture!
