barefoot brides | care-free couples | Jesus lovin' | full of joy



Hey hey hey! It's me, the tiny 5'0ft girl behind the camera, Makayla! I want to start off by saying I'm beyond happy you're here, and I hope we are the perfect fit for one another.

I am a lifestyle and wedding photographer in Chattanooga, TN + beyond, but above all I am a Christian that can't get over her Saviors love and forgiveness. I try my best to give Him the glory in everything and use this lil' business of mine as a ministry to meet people I otherwise wouldn't have the opportunity to meet and hopefully make some great lasting friendships!

I really love just about any kids movie, mango slushes from Sonic, board games, Mexican food, plants (even though I'm no bueno at keeping them alive), comfy clothes, big sweaters, and obviously Jesus. I hope to be a wife and mama someday to a super happy, Jesus lovin' family.

I'm the girl at your wedding making sure your bridesmaids don't have hair bands on their wrists for photos, being your personal hype girl, and the girl who stops during prayer at your wedding because I am not just your wedding photographer, but someone who cares.

I hope to hear from you really soon.


"Makayla took my husband and I's engagement and wedding photos. She did an incredible job on both! Not only does Makayla strive to give you the best photos possible, but she also strives to make sure you feel comfortable in front of the camera by getting to know you more personally before she does your photos. Something my husband and I loved so much about working with her was her communication. She is extremely thorough in her wedding prep before the big day even arrived, I felt confident that she would be able to give us the exact photos we were looking for and she went above and beyond that. My husband and I are in love with our engagement and wedding photos and so are our families."
