  • McKenna was the best photographer we could have chosen to capture our wedding day! From the beginning, she was incredibly responsive and very flexible. She even helped come up with a timeline to make the most of our event! She is fun, super sweet, and incredibly talented. Once we received our preview pictures, we were blown away. We knew she would do a brilliant job, but she went above and beyond our expectations. I cannot say enough positive things about McKenna!

  • I cannot say enough about how amazing our experience with 1828 Collective was! McKenna is an incredible photographer who was so fun to work with! The sessions were laid back and fun, and the pictures turned out beautifully. On top of that, McKenna was super flexible in the midst of the current pandemic. In the weeks leading up to the wedding, she was super helpful as we were trying to decide how to proceed considering the pandemic going on and, even though we moved the date up a week, she was still there and captured every moment. If I could give more than 5 stars I would!

  • When the pandemic pushed us to downsize to a small backyard wedding a MONTH before the date we had picked, we figured no one would be able to photograph the ceremony under such short notice. Enter McKenna, who saved the day! She was so easy to work with, both beforehand and on the day itself. We were really looking for candid shots, and Mckenna was so good at hanging in the background and capturing my family enjoying ourselves as we all hung out in the backyard. And we were so, so pleased with the results (some of which she gave the day of!) We will treasure her work for the years to come. We HIGHLY recommend 1828 Collective!

  • McKenna captured the special moments of our wedding day and we were so happy with her services. We were particularly impressed with her professionalism, responsiveness, and respect she showed to our family and guests. She made the bride feel comfortable on the wedding day and during the engagement shoot. Her husband, Zack, is her second shooter and is great to work with. McKenna is creative and will offer great suggestions and can adapt very quickly. For example, rain on our wedding day presented some challenges that were met with grace and positivity. The photo delivery process is seamless - we love the digital album. We felt she provided an excellent service for a fair price. We plan to use McKenna for future photography needs!

  • I don’t cry easily, but I cried when I got my photos back from McKenna. She will be my life photographer, meaning all of my family’s big moments, I want HER there to capture them. Whether it’s a vow renewal, my best friend’s wedding, my husband’s band photos, the announcement of a pregnancy, I want McKenna’s work framed & up on the walls of my house for the rest of my life because she’s THAT GOOD. She makes you feel incredibly confident & comfortable in front of the camera (which does NOT come easily to me.) Her work feels super light but with this beautiful artistic contrast that makes it stand apart from everyone else. I can always recognize it because I love her photos so much. She’s also incredibly kind & responsive. McKenna loves what she does & that makes all the difference.

  • Mckenna has been nothing but a phenomenal photographer to work with. She’s captured so many incredible moments for us. The best part about working with her is how passionate she is about capturing your “couple essence”. She’s encouraging, but not too intrusive. She directs you without forcing the shot.

  • McKenna at 1828 Collective is by far the most incredible photographer I’ve ever worked with. She is so kind, attentive, and so very talented. She makes you feel confident and comfortable and delivers stunning images of your most special day. My husband and I are left with the most beautiful photographs that we will cherish forever. I recommend her 100 times over! Her pricing is far and reasonable and she works with you every step of the way to ensure perfection on your wedding day!

  • Wholeheartedly recommend McKenna and 1828 Collective! I (groom) initially reached out to McKenna to secretly take photos when I proposed to my wife. Our engagement photos turned out so well that we decided to ask McKenna to do our wedding as well. McKenna is super friendly, happy to work with you, and genuinely cares about her clients. And the photos themselves are truly fantastic—you will not be disappointed. We got married in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, and McKenna was incredibly accommodating and flexible as we figured out how we needed to change our ceremony and reception plans. We ended up making some drastic, last-minute changes, and she worked with us to help capture our special day even in the midst of the unpredictability. We had to cancel part of our reception because of the pandemic and substantially downsize the ceremony, and McKenna treated us very fairly in negotiating adjustments to our photography contract. Overall we had a fantastic experience with McKenna a... Read more
