I am Makenzie Rae.

I am a mother, a daughter, a dreamer, an adventurer, an enthusiast, a photographer.

Everyone’s story is a complete picture made up of facts, feelings and interpretations, which means that part of your story is not even told by you. Sharing my story along with getting to know my clients is such an important part of the entire process. But part of your story can be captured by my candid photography, and this is what motivates me to follow my dream. Let me tell your story! My heart is in storytelling weddings and elopements. The stuff that focuses on the love and the “why” to the wedding. The interactions between you and your fiancé, shamelessly in love with each other.

I am motivated by your love; raw and real. Everything from your excited tears before “I do”, to the gut wrenching laughter as the best-man toasts. It’s my job to capture images that elicit the feelings you had in those exact moments. And together, let’s capture your unique story!

My love for travel <3

For the past few years I've been traveling around the U.S. + different countries looking for new adventure as often as I can. Such as recording studios for different musicians in Tennessee, a wedding in New York, a few workshops in Colorado & more. I have been so blessed to have these opportunities & continue to cross things off my list as time goes on! 

Next up > Bahamas + Virgin Islands

Family + Friends

 In 2017, when my son was born, I wanted photos of him that were just like the ones i seen on pinterest. So I decided to set it all up myself with props & getting creative. Soon it turned into friends asking me to take their photos. My first ever paid photoshoot was a portrait modeling session with a friend that was moving across the country. As soon as I started sharing my love for photography and art with the world, I made a business out of it & I knew I had found what I was passionate about. People, Love, Memories, Art.
