I take the opportunity to document one of the best days of your life very seriously. When I say "document", I mean I am there to capture all of the sweet in-between moments, but also those posed portraits that make you feel so beautiful. Wiping tears while your girls pray over you, those last minute nerves before you walk down the isle, and those beautifully posed portraits of you and your new spouse with that beautiful golden sun are what I am there for. This day is not about me, It’s about you. I am the girl who will make sure your girls don’t have hair ties on their wrists during the photos, be your personal hype girl all day. I’m also the girl who will stop during prayer and pray for you and your marriage because this is way bigger than just taking photos for me.
frequently asked questions
"My Fiancé hates taking photos."
I don't shoot with very many people that are comfy in front of the camera, so it is my job to make it fun and natural. You won't be a statue with no emotion. It's my job to make you laugh and have fun, and that's my goal! I've got you.
"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."
