I ask my client's to send me a snapshot of their outfits a week before their session. That way I can give a thumbs up on their decision and finalize the location. For more help, head to my YouTube channel! 

question 04 : What should I wear?

Sessions are usually an hour and a half to two hours. I don't limit the length of a session... but the sun sure does. 

question 03 : how long will our shoot be?

You'll receive a link to a beautiful online gallery. You'll then be able to view, share, and download files. Stunning custom USB drives are included in all wedding collections. 

question 02 : How will my images be delivered? 

You'll receive over 200 beautiful ready to print images with each session.
Wedding day images vary between 400-700 images depending on coverage and events.

question 01 : How many images will i receive?

YES! I usually leave it up to the groom to decide on the song so he feels comfortable with it. But YES! Let's end the bridal session with a dance party. If you don't know what a #mclipsynch is, check out my Instagram feed! 

question 08 : can we film a #mclipsynch?

Put your fears to rest. The most frequent compliment I receive is that I make everyone feel comfortable and the phrase 'Well, that was easier than I thought.' is always said by the groom at the end of a session. 

question 07 : I'm nervous about my session. what do you suggest?

Yes! Once you book your wedding, I'll send you my preferred vendor list. From venues to videographers and everything in between. I've been in the wedding business for 14 years and I know the best of the best!

question 06 : Do you have preferred vendors?

100% yes! I require all of my clients to hire professional hair and makeup artists. I want you to look and feel your very best, and that's happens when you hire professionals. 

question 05 : Should I have professional hair and makeup?

McKenzie has been amazing! I’m a photographer myself, so I’m picky. I couldn’t be happier with her. She’s professional, makes you feel comfortable and like family. She’s been very timely so far and great with communication. I couldn’t recommend her enough. I’ve been so happy with her work and with who she is as a person!

McKenzie is literally the best. She is so much fun and makes taking photos incredibly easy. My fiance was definitely a picture hater and after we met McKenzie for engagements I was sure he was going to leave me to go marry her, he LOVED her! She made everything so fun and now she feels like a dear friend, not just someone who took my pictures once. McKenzie really knows how to make people feel comfortable on the other side of the lens and I will recommend her til the day I die. She's great and so are her photos. We have started to get some of our wedding photos back and I have spent about 4 days straight just looking at them over and over. I can't stop! Book McKenzie. You won't be disappointed!

McKenzie Deakins is very professional and well put together. She was amazing. I was very impressed with not only the way she worked but more importantly for me, her work period. Documenting the biggest day of your life is a very serious thing that should not be taken lightly and I felt 100 percent trust in her work and the results that we received. She was very personable and easy to work with. She even sang the elmo song to get my nieces and nephews to get them to look at the camera. She came on a road trip with us because I wanted a specific location for my bridals and was very positive about the whole situation and made everything flow smoothly. At my wedding she went above and beyond what a photographer is expected to do. When it comes down to choosing a photographer the most important things are having a good experience and great pictures. She out performed every expectation I had for a photographer. I strongly suggest using her if you are serious about having your big day remembered.
