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

We’re Kelsy & Butch McCartney, the husband & wife team behind The McCartneys Photography. Our studio is located downtown in central WI and we regularly travel around the midwest to photograph couples in love. Door County is among our very favorite plaes to photograph!

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 11th 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 :)

Amazing Photographers!

We chose the McCartneys as the photographers for our engagement shoot and our wedding in Door County this past summer. We are by no means individuals that love to be photographed but we felt extremely comfortable shooting with Kelsy & Butch. They are down to earth and put us both at ease throughout the entire process. We just received a very comprehensive and stunning collection of photographs from our wedding day. We couldn't be more pleased! They captured so many special moments from the day that we will look back on for years to come. We wanted our photos to be elegant and timeless and they completely delivered. We loved the fact that they had shot many weddings in Door County, WI in the past. They helped find beautiful outdoor backdrops for our photos. If you are looking to make an investment in beautiful, timeless photography for your wedding I wouldn't hesitate to book them! Thank you, Kelsy & Butch!

These are your wedding photographers! Look no further!

Kelsy and Butch. Where to even begin. They were such a bright light during our special day. I don’t think I’ve met a duo that is so kind, amazingly positive, and yet totally professional. They make you feel so comfortable I literally forgot they were taking photos. Our bridal party and families could not stop talking about how awesome they were - they truly added so much to our day. This expense is TOTALLY worth it for the quality of the photos. They captured such genuine moments and really took into consideration the style of photography I wanted, which was amazing. These are your people!!

HIGHLY RECOMMEND- if you like having fun and getting great pictures

We got married in September 2021 and this amazing duo added so much fun to our day! We are both super awkward and do not like being in front of the camera and they made everything feel so natural and fun!! We don't have our pictures yet but we're so excited to see them as even the pictures they took on their phones and posted to Instagram were amazing! We also had a decent sized group for the brides extended family and everyone was asking for family pictures; Butch was so flexible and kind making sure that all the moments were captured. We cannot be more happy that they were a part of our day both as photographers who brought out the best in us for pictures but also as a wonderful couple who filled our day with many laughs and smiles with their great senses of humor, love, and excitement to be a part of our day.

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!
