meet your photog soulmate

So get this, your day is finally here. You’ve put your heart and soul into the final details like those sweet notes you’ll exchange. This day came so fast and now all you can think about is being present in the moment. That’s where ya girl comes in - that’s me. I am there to photograph what you’re experiencing along with moments that may have been overlooked. I’m there to make sure you are present in one of the favorite days of your life instead of worrying about how you will remember everything. At the end of the day, you get to hangout with the love of your life everyday, forever. Let me take care of the rest. 

hi, it’s me, ya girl. Lover of all things travel, Dirty Dancing, education, Chicago, ice cream, and photography (obvi). I consider myself a little bit of a foodie and love exploring creativity in food being a vegetarian. If I’m missing, you could probably find me in the ice cream aisle trying to decide between Phish Food or Half Baked - because how could one choose? Ben&Jerry needs to get their shit together and just combine the two.

I have the sweetest, most caring, hardworking, and considerate boyfriend in the whole world. Alex is my partner in crime (and business). During the week he's a Chemical Engineer, on the weekends he's my certified assistant - meaning, he's pretty good at holding bouquets, second shooting (yes he’s also a pretty great photographer himself!), setting up shots, and keeping track of my equipment. Him and I together, total dynamic duo. We love exploring the world together, rice candy, going to REI, long hikes, and HGTV. He's pretty cool.

So what you waiting for?  

I can’t wait to know you.

Feelin' the vibes? 


 

Trusting someone with the only tangible things you will have after your day is said and done is a HUGE commitment. Finding someone that not only connects to you two as a couple but knows what is important to capture is the perfect formula. This is a scary process and huge investment, let my couples reassure you that you are in the best hands.

 
 

“McKenzie = the most amazing, personable photographer I have ever met. She uses techniques that make her unique from others and make special day pictures one of a kind! I had reached out to her super late and she managed to make me feel like my day was still so important and she made time for me and my husband. My husband and I both agreed we have never felt more comfortable in front of a camera and so relaxed which made the world of a difference. She was our personal hype man that day and we absolutely loved it and her!! And our pictures were, oh my gosh, amazing. I have looked at them every night since we got married falling more in love each time! Everyone needs McKenzie in their life, fo sho.”

“Working with McKenzie was great from the very beginning of the process! It was awesome to have a photographer that made the wedding planning enjoyable and completely stress free. McKenzie made us feel confident and excited about our vision and unique ideas for our wedding. My husband isn't a huge fan of getting a bunch of pictures taken, but on the day of our wedding he said that it was fun to take pictures because of McKenzie! She did a great job at making us feel relaxed and she snapped pictures so quickly so it don't take away from the day at all. We love how our wedding pictures turned out! McKenzie perfectly captured the emotions and events of the day. I don't think we could've had a better experience from planning, to the day of, to seeing how the photos show exactly how we envisioned our wedding. McKenzie is understanding, dedicated, and professional and we highly recommend her for your wedding!!”

“I've been dragging my feet on writing a recommendation for Mckenzie Bigliazzi Photography for over a month now, because words do not do this woman any justice. The intimate experience we shared with Mckenzie not only fueled the fiery passion that my fiancé and I have together, it ignited something beautiful and playful between us that we nearly ignored during the chaos of wedding planning. Everything that she says about the experience is true. She is our friend. She allowed us to open up and show her an intimate side of ourselves only a few get to see. My fiancé and I are normally very camera shy. Right from the moment we met her she set our nerves at ease. She is such a joy to be around. We laughed so hard our cheeks were hurting for the rest of the night. Not only is she an amazing person but she is one of the humblest, extraordinarily talented photographers I've ever had the pleasure to meet. She has this innate ability to pick up on a couple's chemistry and make the whole shoot a beautiful portrait of your love together. Something that I noticed when I was first searching through her photos is that McKenzie photographs her friends and family pretty often. Yet, when I was scrolling through her pictures, I noticed that I couldn't distinguish between her friends and her clients. That is how well she gets to know her couples and how comfortable they feel around her. I hope she will be present for every future milestone in our lives. HIRE HER.”

“McKenzie was absolutely wonderful to work with. The photographer is one of the major if not most important part of your big day. They capture not only everyone who is part of your big day but the raw emotion that you could relive looking at photos and McKenzie is spot on. Another major thing is how comfortable we felt as well as the bridal party. Not only did my girls think she was awesome and part of the crew but McKenzie helped us feel sane. I've been part of wedding parties and not one photographer felt as personable like McKenzie did. She truly loves what she does not only by her hard work but how she presents herself as well. She made sure we had time for ourselves and time with guests rather than focusing on hours on end for pictures and portraits, she captured the true RAW EMOTIONAL events that took place. We love McKenzie and definitely recommend her if you are looking for an amazing photographer with a true talent.”

“McKenzie is absolutely amazing! Our engagement session went so smooth and we were so comfortable being in front of the camera with her. She captures the love of a couple through pictures, which is hard to do, but she does it perfectly. I’ve received so many compliments about our pictures since we’ve received them. We’ll definitely be using McKenzie for any professional photos we need taken!”

- Megan + Mike


“I could not have dreamed of a better photographer than McKenzie!! She makes every girl's Pinterest dream come true. She came up with the fair idea on a Wednesday and we made it happen on Thursday! She was so fun and made our session feel like a fun date night! Finding someone with her eye, creativity and editing skills is a rarity and I am truly blessed that we crossed paths!!! We are even more excited for our wedding date to see what other awesomeness she has up her sleeve!”
