I am the passionate creative behind the lens and I am so glad you are here.

Photography has been a passion set on my heart since I was a little girl lining up stuffed animals for a disposable camera photoshoot, and I truly feel so blessed that capturing your most sacred moments is what I get to spend my days doing!

In 2021 I set out to turn my dream into a reality and focused on all of the beauty I saw through the camera. From hugs you wish would never end, to the laughter that is contagious, and every heart felt moment in between!

I can't wait to celebrate all of life's greatest moments with you!

Hey Friends,

I'm Mckinsey!

More About me


Kentucky's storytelling Wedding & Portrait Photographer

"wow, I could probably. go on for miles and miles about how wonderful Mckinsey and Gavin were for our most special day. They went above and beyond to not only get the best most detailed shots, but also to bring such positivity and light to our day. As a high strung person, I was bound to have fits of panic on my wedding day. Mckinsey not only did everything in her power to keep me grounded, but she also empowered me and made me feel even more beautiful than I ever thought I could on our day. I am so grateful for everything they did for us. I couldn't possibly be able to repay them for all the joy they brought us. Their personalities are so gentle and kind, but Mckinsey also made sure to get our family and bridal parties in line to get the best shots in a timely manner. We probably couldn't have gotten through the day without them. Mckinsey and Gavin, THANK YOU from the bottom of Keegan and I's hearts. We are so grateful for you and our newfound friendship. Thank you for being such a big part of our day!

Mckinsey is absolutely wonderful. She's extremely laid back and makes you feel comfortable being in front of the camera. Her work is outstanding and so is her customer service/communication. Our wedding day went flawless and a big part of it goes to Mckinsey! It hasn't even been two weeks since the big day and she's already sent me the edited wedding gallery. If you're looking for a friendly, easy going, professional photographer, Mckinsey is your girl!

-Michael & Christie

Mckinsey was absolutely AMAZING at our wedding. She will capture every moment of your big day and then some. Throughout the day she relieved some stress by coordinating the pictures so well and making us laugh as well. Not to mention she gave us a sneak peak the next day so we could relive our day so quickly! She is by far the best photographer there is, no one can change my mind!

Mckinsey was amazing! She was so much fun to have out and do this engagement shoot. They went above and beyond to truly capture us as a couple and I couldn't be more pleased with our pictures! I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a great photographer!!

Mckinsey and Gavin shot our wedding a week and a half ago and omg!! Mckinsey got our gallery back to us in less than a week which was super nice!! They're also just awesome people. My husband and I are not the type to act natural in front of a camera but working with Mckinsey and Gavin is honestly like working with friends. It was super nice to get to know both of them during our them during our engagement shoot- Mckinsey was also super helpful picking a beautiful place to shoot. 
Mckinsey was always super responsive even though she just had a baby!!! She was SO helpful when I needed help with anything. She followed my shot list to a tee.
We are soooo grateful that we have Mckinsey and Gavin to document our day and help us through the process. I also thank them for their great personalities and ability to work with all of. our other vendors with no issue.
