About The McCartneys Photography

Congratulations on your engagement! We couldn't be more thankful you're here getting to know us & our work :)

We're Kelsy & Butch McCartney, husband & wife team at The McCartneys Photography. Our studio is located downtown in Central WI and we regularly travel around the Midwest to photograph couples in love (especially in Door County & Madison)!

As we've been told, we have an energy that is best described as contagious! When asked why we love photography, our answer is simple and it comes with a smile on our faces. We love capturing heartfelt moments that go by too fast so you can look back on them with a smile on YOUR face! Knowing the images we create will last forever and become a cherished memory for our clients means the world to us.

We are approaching our 9th year as full-time photographers and feel endlessly grateful for the incredible couples we are privileged to get to know. Above all, it's the connections we make with our couples that fill us up and make us love what we do. YOU are our WHY. Creating a taken-care-of experience for our clients is just one thing that sets us apart, in addition to our magnetic energy and artful yet timeless imagery.

When we're not behind the camera we love sharing a pot of coffee in the morning (& finding a local coffee shop in the afternoon!), traveling, hiking with our cavapoo pup, and spending as much time with our family as possible.

We're so happy you found us! Fill up your favorite cup, visit our website, and send us a message to introduce yourself - we can't wait to hear about you and your loved ones! :)

Warmly,

Kelsy & Butch

    Wonderful duo!

    Kelsy and Butch were so fun to work with from the first email to when we received our photos (which were delivered less than 1 month after the wedding)!!! We had such a wonderful wedding day and we are thoroughly enjoying reliving it through our photos. Kelsy and Butch had such a great, positive energy and everyone commented how lovely they were to work with. I would highly recommend them!

    Kelsy and Butch are phenomenal photographers, whose exceptional talent and skill are matched by their exceptional personalities.

    After seeing examples of their work via friends who had hired them for their wedding, I knew they would be the first vendor to call when my now-husband and I got engaged. The McCartneys are incredibly professional, personable, and most importantly, masterful at what they do. They are prompt in their pre-wedding communication, provide thoughtful suggestions, and are on top of all the details (qualities that are invaluable to any bride – especially an anxious one like me!)

    They have an amazing way of making you feel at ease in front of the cameras and letting you enjoy the moments they are capturing, while at the same time skillfully guiding the process and ensuring they are getting amazing photos. We truly enjoyed their company during our engagement session as well as their photography of our rehearsal dinner and wedding, and are incredibly happy with our experience working with the McCartneys. It was really nice to hear from our friends and family who they photographed as well, that our photographers were "so fun to work with."

    It is wonderful, beyond words, to reflect on the moments and memories from the happiest day of our lives, and we have Kelsy and Butch to thank for capturing them so beautifully.

    Ah, The McCartneys! I was so excited to randomly stumble upon their blog when I was photographer-hunting and even more excited when they were available for our day. I'm a photography nerd so the photo aspect of our wedding was really important to me, and the fact that the McCartneys do a mix of film and digital was so attractive to me (film is not dead and it's so much better than digital, trust me). I emailed them like a thousand times with questions/updates - planning a wedding long-distance will do this to you - and they were endlessly patient, friendly and even pretended to enjoy my myriad messages. We got our photos super quick after the wedding and they were INCREDIBLE. They're super easy to work with and are more like friends that vendors. Hire them. Now!

    The McCartney's are sincerely the sweetest couple! There is something about married couples capturing other people in love that can't be replicated. They get you and they get each other. Their aesthetic for film and passion for all things beautiful allows this duo to turn the seemingly ordinary into works of art. Their standard for creating timeless and quality pieces for their clients puts them above the rest. Butch + Kelsey will not only capture the rare moments of your day, I know they will showcase every last detail you and your designers toiled over to make your day flawless. Your day might not go perfectly, but the imagery they create of your day will speak to the unique qualities and emotions that are missed by so many. They are worth every penny!
