"You are the best person to follow on Instagram! Seriously, I love your instagram posts! They make me smile. Kyle and I just celebrated our 1st anniversary! And I am so grateful over and over again that we had you as our photographer every time I look back through our pictures. Just wanted to thank you again for being such an amazing photographer and person! I wish we could do that day all over again :) Love you! McKenzie was more than just a photographer, but a great friend through the entire wedding planning process. The moment I spoke with her on the phone, I knew we had picked the best photographer for our special day. I was constantly amazed by the time she took and how much she cared about capturing the perfect moments during our engagements, bridals and overall wedding day. Every time I turned around at our wedding and reception, she was right there, paying attention to every detail and saving these amazing memories. The quality of our photos are so exquisite and priceless, and will be cherished for years to come. There is no one else who will provide you with far more than you paid for and no one else who will be as fun, lively and talented as McKenzie Deakins. Once again, thank you for EVERYTHING!"

"Working with McKenzie is simply put, the best. She is by far my favorite photographer to work with. I so wish I could go back in time and have her shoot my wedding. Her knowledge and technique is unmatched. From lighting, to angles, to composition, to processing the photos, she knows it all and her execution is flawless. She has an innate talent and an artistic eye that are extremely rare and hard to come by. She is truly gifted. McKenzie is meticulous when she shoots a wedding. No small detail gets overlooked. Hair in place, underclothes tucked away, dress smoothed, bow tie straightened. You are bound to look your best with McKenzie. She has a way of bringing the personality of each couple to life. Their relationship translates in the photos. No one ever looks over-posed or awkward. There is a natural, effortless feel to McKenzie's work. I don't know how she does it but it's amazing. She provides stunning formal photos as well as beautiful candid shots. The best of both worlds. The thing I think I love the most about McKenzie is her personality. How she communicates with her couples. Her "bed side manner" if you will. Even the most nervous and awkward of people are immediately put at ease and laughing with McKenzie at the helm. It's impossible not to feel comfortable and happy when McKenzie is in charge. Along that same vein, this woman knows how to wrangle a crowd! Often photographers are soft spoken and much time is wasted when trying to take photos of large groups. Not with McKenzie. She knows how to kindly and firmly take charge of even the largest of groups. She's quick and efficient with your time and somehow comes away with everyone loving her to pieces. I know I do. I would recommend McKenzie to photograph any event any day of the week. You are guaranteed breath taking photos and a wonderful experience taking them. Again, simply the best."

"I met McKenzie at a bridal fair and automatically LOVED her. She was so friendly and complimentary and I loved her style! I really appreciated how she made my husband and I feel comfortable at our photo shoots, and was not afraid to tell us how to sit or stand so that we looked our very best. She even travelled down to St. George in the middle of July to shoot my bridals, and they are stunning. Literally. I have never seen such amazing pictures, and both she and Greg were so much fun! They brought out a good attitude in everyone that reflected in our pictures. McKenzie and Lilly (Picket Fence Films) then both saved the day when they helped me with my hair and makeup for my wedding. I love them both, and am so grateful I picked McKenzie for this special time in my life. She captured my wedding experience so beautifully and it means the world to me."

You captured every moment we could want. There are so many and it's so fun to look at them and relive our special day. You were so fun to work with. We will definitely be recommending you to our friends when they get married!"

"McKenzie & Greg Deakins are fabulous photographers! I've had several opportunities of working with them and as a wedding vendor, have always been happy with their work. They go above and beyond to get those shots that make their clients giddy with joy upon seeing their pictures for the first time. They do a spectacular job at making their clients feel comfortable, great with details, are a blast to be around, and most importantly the end result of all their beautiful photographs have their clients swooning! Thanks McKenzie!"
