About Mackensey Alexander Photography

Mackensey is a wedding and portrait photographer whose focus as an artist is to capture authentic connections, whether it be between lovers, family or even the connection between an individual and their own inner beauty. A true seeker at heart, she has always been inspired by nature and the human experience.

In 2005 Mackensey fell in love with photography when she traveled overseas for the first time. As a young woman from the Midwest, she was incredibly inspired by the diversity of culture she found herself immersed in. Each person she connected with drastically broadened her awareness with their unique perspectives, beliefs and customs. It was an experience she continues to carry with her on her journey as a professional photographer and she remains always open to the powerful impact that random ‘strangers’ can have on her life.

Since establishing her business in 2011, Mackensey has photographed over one hundred weddings and countless families and portraits. In order to ensure that her clients end up with not only gorgeous images but also an overall amazing experience she makes it her top priority to personally give her fullest heart and attention. She strives to create a space where her clients feel seen and valued. Because of this only a limited number of weddings are booked per year.

Her work has been featured in several popular wedding blogs and magazines such as Green Wedding Shoes, Junebug Weddings, 100 Layer Cake, Style Me Pretty, Black Sheep Bride, Ruffled, Wedding Unveiled, Rock n’Roll Bride, Swooned, and Smitten.

Mackensey believes that every person’s unique presence and all flavors of love are beautiful and should shine through their photos. To help her create the relaxed environment for these intimate moments, Mackensey finds it incredibly helpful to connect as much as possible before a portrait session or wedding. She is available for in person consultations, phone, and Skype or FaceTime consultations.

When she’s not working, Mackensey enjoys spending her time with her partner Timothy and daughter Ophelia, traveling, spending time in nature, dancing, singing, writing and attempting to learn the guitar. Although she loves visiting big cities, her biggest dream is to one day own a peaceful cabin in the woods. She and her family are currently rooted in Asheville, North Carolina and also spend lots of time in the mossy marsh land of Savannah, Georgia. Mackensey is available for travel worldwide.

Ladies and gentlemen, if you want to book the best photographer around who also happens to be the sweetest person you could ever meet, contact Mackensey immediately! From a fabulous engagement session ... Read more to our wedding day, Mackensey was amazing. She is calm, cool & collected no matter what ridiculousness is thrown at her {and let's be honest, high-stress events like weddings tend to bring out quite a bit of ridiculousness on more than one front}. She is firm when she needs to be {an excellent quality in one of the people with the most control over how your wedding day timeline progresses} yet always polite and sweet. Not only is she truly an artist, but she is also a consummate professional with prompt correspondence times and an insanely fast turnaround time for edited pictures. I highly encourage all of you reading this to contact her - you'll be so very happy you did!

Incredible

In the midst of one of the most overwhelming days of our lives, Mackensey captures our joy perfectly. She came into a situation not knowing the venue (being from out of town), or the photo locations ... Read more we had chosen, and she made them work beautifully. She also found a second shooter in a town that’s not her own that was absolutely amazing. Her editing elicits the exact vibe we were shooting for, and we got “sneak peaks” less than 48 hrs after the wedding. Trust me, you may not think you want pictures immediately, but the moment you get them you’ll obsess for days. She was the perfect mixture of directive and responsive. We are forever grateful that she was the one to capture our day.

Beautiful work and beautiful person!

Mackensey was the first person we hired for our wedding and one of the most cherished members of our wedding team by a landslide! Her work is truly an art and I still sit in awe as we look back at the ... Read more beauty she captured on our special day. She was such a huge help from the moment we added her to our team. Let’s be honest, taking pictures with your significant other in front of someone you’ve never met can seem a little nerve-wracking. Not with Mackensey! She was the most calming presence from our engagement shoot to the moment she walked into our bridal house on our big day. Even in the moments of the inevitable chaos, her sincerity and the ease with which she does her work ensured we were focused on enjoying our big day while she managed to capture every detail in the most amazing way. Her ability to capture the authenticity and emotion in each and every moment never ceases to amaze me. I would spend every penny a hundred times over to continue to cherish the moments she captured on our wedding day. She is so much more than a photographer and I cannot recommend her enough!
