Mackenzie started her business in 2013 and primarily shoots families, weddings, and events. She minored in Art with a concentration in Photography at the University of Miami (go Canes!), primarily investigating medium format film portraiture. Mackenzie also completed two years of graduate design school before obtaining her Masters degree from SUNY ESF. Her shooting style is fun, upbeat, romantic, and full of emotion. She aims to get a combination of the smiley, formal portraits and those incredible moments in between that illustrate the relationships between you and your loved ones. Her main goal is to exceed your expectations for your photographs and to capture what is most important to you.
Mackenzie pretty much ALWAYS has a huge smile on her face when taking photographs - it's what she loves to do, and she loves making sure that you have a great time, as well. When not taking pictures, Mackenzie enjoys running, hiking, and spending time with her two other halves - her wonderfully supportive husband and their sweet baby girl.
A South Jersey native her entire life, Bonnie grew up in Cinnaminson, NJ. In addition to wedding and lifestyle photography, she is also a middle school Special Education Teacher and Teacher of the Deaf. In her free time, she enjoys reading, eating French fries, and raising her three children.
Bonnie feels that a wedding photographer should not only be someone with competency and superior talent, but someone technically capable of capturing your day in a non-invasive and reliable manner. Bonnie also believes that the person you choose to document your special day should be someone that you can call a friend. Because of that, you will not see her coldly snapping away, devoid of emotion. You will notice her cry when the bride’s father sees his baby girl for the first time, or maybe you’ll see her grinning when the couple is announced as bride and groom, or dancing the Apache alongside you while you celebrate your joy. Bonnie will not photograph your wedding as she sees it, but as you and your family remember it. The moments you cherished, the ones you missed, the details exactly as you envisioned them. She wants you to always cherish your wedding pictures and hopes your experience with her will leave you with a smile and a laugh.
