artfully preserving the unforgettable


Makayla was excellent to work with during our engagement session! She is so kind and personable, making the process comfortable and easy. I was so happy with how quickly she got our photos to us, and we were in love with how they turned out. The relationships she keeps with vendors are also impressive- she seems to have contacts for almost any photoshoot location or other wedding needs. We cannot wait for her to capture our wedding!

Makayla was so nice and fun to work with and made it so easy to be myself during pictures. She knows how to make sure you are comfortable and getting all of the angles and poses you wanted and has amazing photography skills that show very clearly in her work. She really takes time to make sure you get exactly what you want and gets to know you as a person as well. I had such a fun time and she made me so excited for senior year!
