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!

The best photography!
I spent months on finding a photographer, once I met Chelsea and Mack I knew they were meant to be our photographer. Just to be on the safe side we visited about 5 other photographers all over Fort Worth and Dallas, but their photos did not look anything like McGowan Images. We had the most amazing photos from both our engagement session and wedding. What I liked most about them, is that they want you happy, and they want the best photos taken. They will move the creepy uncle that magically keeps appearing in their shots (true story) and do it with ease because at the end of the day, you want the perfect photos. They are super personable and just overall badass to work with. I am the most awkward person when it comes to photos but they found a way to make it less awkward and by the end of the day it felt completely normal. We love our photos and received so many compliments on them through various forms of social media. If you do not go with McGowan Images, you will regret it.Sent on 02/02/2019

Made My Day
I met Chelsea and Mack when the photographed my sister's wedding. So I knew I wanted them to be my photographers before I had even met my husband!Sent on 01/16/2019
They lived up to every memory I had of them. From the get go, they were so great about making the planning process and day of as stress free as possible.
They were flexible with engagement photos when the weather just WOULD NOT cooperate. And they helped us feel more comfortable in front of the camera, even though we are super awkward.
On our wedding day, they were my saving grace. My dress was not cooperating and Chelsea stepped in to save the day by keeping me calm. They also kept everyone laughing and still on schedule. They captured every sweet, funny and joyous moment beyond my expectations. And they got our pictures back to us within 6 weeks of the wedding.
I've heard horror stories of other people's photographers and am so glad I had these two in my corner. Thank you Chelsea and Mack!

If you need a photographer for anything, ESPECIALLY a wedding, do yourself a favor and hire Mack and Chelsea of McGowan Images! The photos we have from our wedding in Mexico are all more than we could have imagined. Every picture in our gallery was perfect. We love them all SO much! Not to mention how much fun they are! I love seeing these posts and revisiting our day all over again. Cherished memories and we have pictures that will last forever!Sent on 01/16/2019
